Building Design Services

Knowing what to do is sometimes difficult to decide as there are always a number of possible options. We come on site, listen to what you are trying to achieve and make suggestions on design and layout. Between us we then develop an overall plan for your renovation, addition, alteration, new build or other possible change you’re thinking about.

Most importantly, overall you end up with what you want, not what someone else wants. And it’s something that works for you.

We also work out approximately what your renovation, addition or new build will cost you, and give you a ball-park figure … so you don’t waste your time and money getting drawings and consent for a project that doesn’t meet your budget. We believe it makes sense for you to know what your project might cost at an early stage, so you can make changes if necessary.

There’s an old saying in the building industry that goes like this … “If You Can Dream It, We Can Build It” and it’s right, we can build it … but we also have to temper our dreams with reality. Most of us have to be practical. Most of us only have a certain amount of money to spend on our property renovation, upgrade, addition or new build. And most of us only have a certain amount of time to be allocated to a project.

So, the reality is that there are inevitably compromises that will need to made in your design.

We believe that part of our job is to educate you about the options you can consider. We can’t possibly tell you everything about every single item, but if we spend some time with you … and we LISTEN to you, we’re pretty sure we can come up with a range of suitable possibilities.

Then you can decide what you want to do from there.

Sometimes the hardest part of any property upgrade, renovation, addition or new build is knowing what the options are. When you deal with Smartway Builders, you end up talking it all through with someone who can think outside the square when it comes to residential property construction, and that can be a huge bonus, and it will also help you consider ideas that you may not have thought of.

We pride ourselves on the design and implementation concepts and ideas we can come up with.

They’re practical, real, valuable ideas that will work for you. And they’ll help you stay within your budget.
