About US

Qalchek Pty Ltd was established in 1993 by Ian and Elaine Moore and Graham and Denise Mills.

The business grew legs when Sydney Water announced that they planned to turn over specific government responsibilities to private industry providers.

As an employee of Sydney Water at the time, Graham knew the in’s and out’s of the industry and with his partners, worked together to create a business that expanded at a significant rate.

Starting out, Qalchek was just a quality checking company. After only one year of operation there became a strong demand to also provide a design service.

Developers wanted to work with people who could tell them exactly how they should be designing, to adhere to requirements and to gain the approvals they needed, at a fast pace.

Fast forward to 2020 and Qalchek continues to dominate the industry, offering a full service from approval assistance to design works and construction coordination
