This is to affirm that Chris Turner, from design2build, has done building modifications for Matt on the NDIS scheme. He has done an amazing modification for Matt, working within our boundaries with great understanding, for Matt who is so incapacitated.


I can't recommend a building team more highly than Chris and his team. They worked respectfully, quickly, and to a high standard with our needs and requirements. You won't be disappointed. And Chris is a great builder that works with honesty and integrity. ( Extremely rare these days!!!!)


We recommend him highly

Scope of Service & Sample of Design Drawings 

Working closely with our client helps create meaningful places and spaces that are good for the client and healthy for the environment. We love using colour and texture in planting and materials to create that something special. 

Our services are tailored for each project as required, but a general process of our phases are as follows:

Phase 1:

INITIAL SITE VISIT - includes establishment of brief

Phase 2:

CONCEPT DESIGN: Hand-drawn sketches

Phase 3:

SCHEMATIC DESIGN: CAD based drawing with photoshop and basic specification. 

Phase 4:

DETAILED DESIGN: CAD based drawings with detailed specification

As a design and construction company, we can save the client fees by reducing the detail of the construction documentation. We are actively overseeing the construction on site to ensure the design intent is produced to a high standard.
