LP Warren Story

Our company started from humble beginnings in Diamond Creek and was established by Les Warren in 1965. Les specialised in purchasing steep and sloping building sites that were less sought after by other builders who saw them as too difficult to build on.

Les designed homes, to take full advantage of the slope of the site but always kept site cutting and retaining walls to a minimum.  The sub-contractors that Les used were not intimidated by the difficulty of working on these sites and have become specialists at working on difficult and steep building sites.  Most of the original sub-contractors and now their sons are still working for LP Warren Homes.

Geoff Swan joined the company in 1978 and worked with Les until he passed away in 1983.

In 1984 Geoff Swan, the then Company Supervisor purchased the business. Geoff Swan is a qualified carpenter and joiner by trade. He is also a registered builder with 47 year’s experience in the building industry.  He is a member of the Master Builders Association of Australia (MBAV) and the Housing Industry Association of Victoria (HIA)

Today Geoff serves as the Managing Director of the company. His wife Glenda is also a Director on the Board.  Geoff and Glenda have 5 children, who have all worked in the business and today their 3 daughters Melissa, Jenny and Kathy all play an integral role in the day to day business operations.

Geoff has a community conscience and was personally touched by the devastating fires at Kinglake and surrounding areas. Geoff and his wife Glenda have been active fundraisers and mentors, assisting in the rebuilding process through the local traders and Rotary.

Geoff has been a member of Rotary for 19 years and is a past President of the Diamond Creek Rotary Club. He continues to serve as a committee member for the same club.

Geoff is passionate about building peoples dream homes. He has a wealth of knowledge in residential building and has vast experience in difficult and sloping building sites.  This knowledge has been shared with staff through mentoring and training processes established within the organisation.  Geoff is recognised for his honesty, integrity, exceptional organisational skills and ability to solve problems.

LP Warren Homes has built over 1000 homes over the last 45 years the majority being on sloping sites. That is why we are the Original Sloping Block Specialists.  However, we also build on flat sites and are currently doing a lot of knock down and rebuild work in the inner suburbs of Melbourne.  Why not let us design your next New Home?
