Leigh Swords

Construction Manager

Through early engagement, Leigh focuses on building projects around the client's needs by offering options to value engineer, manage costs, and optimise the construction programme.

Leigh is a strong and capable leader with sound knowledge in structural construction and landscaping. He thrives on complex jobs that both challenge and allow him and his team to build on their existing skills.

During his time at Schiavello, he has delivered more than $200M in projects from multi-site retail fitouts to award-winning hospitality venues including Brunetti, Garden State Hotel, and Village Belle Hotel.

"Projects that involve structural refurbishments, like Village Belle Hotel, are especially rewarding. The fact that we can enjoy the space afterwards makes the feeling everlasting," he says.

Leigh has also delivered Bank of Melbourne's headquarters - finalist for the 2019 Property Council of Australia Award for Best Workplace.
