Our mission is to take the industry by storm, because we see the things it is lacking. With construction companies not meeting requirements and we want to strive to change that. It has taken us along time to develop always learning, which has been key because if you do not learn you are not getting better, and if you’re not learning you are essentially not providing on quality.
Our vision is the need to be industry leaders, and have realised that effectively managing everyone from clients to the architects keeps the team vitally motivated. As a team it has been our mission to tidy up all the loose ends in the building industry. We want to be the best at what we do making sure we provide a quality finish, adhere to schedule, and cut down re-work.

 DO NOT get started without knowing what is involved in the PROCESS. Let us help you with the research first, DOWNLOAD your FREE GUIDE that contains the most IMPORTANT STEPS concerning the renovation process.

How We Work With You



This is your first opportunity to tell us about your project. Once we have a brief idea of what you’re looking to do, we’ll email you a questionnaire asking you some detailed questions so we can get a better understanding of what you want to achieve with your build. From here we can book you in for
 your free one-hour consultation.

The information gathered in the questionnaire allows me to fully prepare myself in order to make the most of the time spent
during the visit on site.


Your 1- Hour Consultation

During this session we will cover all of the big topics:

TIME FRAMES:  When to start, length of time, any 
possible hold ups and how to avoid them.

COUNCIL:  What consents you might need, how to apply for them and how the council process works.

PRICING:  What sort of costs you can expect and what type of
 contract will best suit you for your project.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT:  Who does the what, when, where and

MATERIALS: Understanding claddings, fittings and fixtures,
paint, kitchen designers, and the many choices you’ll need to 
make as your project becomes a reality.

We can either use any existing plans that you have drawn up with your architect, to put together a brief costing of your job. We can also help transfer your thoughts and dreams onto paper, using a reputable architect who will take them through to the council approval stage. If you are unsure of what to do at any stage don’t stress, we will be there to walk you through the whole process in order to make everything much easier for you.

yellow_icon-svg1   JOB PROGRESSION

During the course of your build there will be regular time-tabling, site meetings and budget reviews. In doing so, this will give you the opportunity to view progress and address any queries you have with regards to design functionality that may arise as you see your dream renovation/home brought to life. This allows you to make confident and informed decisions. We find this constant contact keeps the job running smoothly and everyone on the same page which helps to deliver the best quality project for you.

I found Tim helpful in the planning stages of the contracts, competitive with pricing and excellent in the results produced.

We offer either fixed price or estimated cost break down, with each having their own advantages and disadvantages. Below is a breakdown of what each entails so you can choose which works best for you.


Gives you a fixed sum as to what the build will cost, based on what you decide you want prior to the signing of the contract. The main benefit of going for a fixed sum contract is that the agreed upon cost of build is exactly that – fixed. There is still the possibly of making changes during the build but the down side is that with a fixed price contract, each time you deviate from the agreed plan, additional paper work is required, meaning more time and money is spent. If you know exactly what you want prior to the beginning of the build, this is a good option for you, as you won’t have to worry about budget blow outs.

There’s no cushion added as you will often find with fixed prices. With the estimated cost break down, you pay for exactly what is needed and nothing more. However, there is no contingency figure added like in fixed price, in order to cover any unforeseen costs that may arise during the build.
Charge up contracts offer more transparency with your invoices, a copy of every receipt for every dollar spent e.g. for all materials, sub-contractors,
 and labour completed to date. You’re always able to review and query invoices before payments are made for your peace of mind. Of course any changes will be discussed prior so you have ample time and are aware of the best options
for the proposed changes, and any potential impact they may have on the overall budget for the job.


Once we’ve agreed upon either fixed price or estimated cost, we’ll present you with a full building contract supplied by the Certified Builders Association, who produce the most up to date contracts in the industry. Allowing you time to check it over with your solicitor prior to signing, this will outline our responsibility to you, the extent of work, insurances, time period and payment schedule. We’ll also provide you with a disclosure statement outlining which sub contractors will be working on your build, a written warranty on the building products being used and details of our insurance. A timeline for your project and the completion date will also be set at this point.

yellow_icon-svg3  JOB COMPLETION

Once the final council inspection has been obtained we will go through a 287-point checklist to ensure every box has been ticked. Once you’re fully satisfied with the results, we’ll provide you with the Ten Year Home First Guarantee, the Code of Compliance Certification plus information and warranties relating to your job. Last but not least, for all renovations and new builds over $50,000, we’ll organise for your house to be professionally cleaned for free, so you can put your feet up and start enjoying your new space sooner.
