The design phase is a creative journey. We find out all about you and what you want your home to be so that we can create something special.

It’s exciting to unleash your creativity and ideas onto paper and then hone them into a clear picture of what you want to your home to look and feel like.

With planning, we get technical.

We take all the ideas that were mapped out in the design phase and ensure that each of them is physically possible to achieve.

Leave all the regulation and compliance certification to us.

The day is finally here.

Our builder arrives on site and your home becomes a hive of activity. All the initial design and planning processes are coming together, with builders, trades, and materials all falling into place to achieve your dream.

How the DPCWorks For You

Before we go into detail, we would like to let you know why we developed the DPC system and how it works for you and your home renovation.


Design-and-build is the concept of integrating the designing and building process of a construction project—with one company managing the entire process from start to finish. This also applies to renovations, as the process can actually be more complex than a new build from scratch. Choosing a single company to manage the design and build of your renovation can be far more efficient because it means that everyone is on the same page from the outset—in terms of your vision for the project as well as your budget.

Engaging an architect initially can result in you paying for beautiful, impressive plans which you can’t actually afford to bring to life. In contrast, Smith & Sons works with you to achieve your dream home on your terms. Working with our team from the beginning can streamline the process, and optimise your budget and time. We still do beautiful and impressive, but we work closely with you to make it happen and ensure that all the effort and money that goes in is reflected in the final outcome.

What makes us different from other design-and-build companies?

Here are a few benefits of working with Smith & Sons
and why we are different:

  • We talk about budget before the design and consent process begins— if we’re all on the same page from the outset, you save time and money.
  • We provide a detailed cost estimate breakdown so you know the price of each element of the renovation and have the freedom to alter your vision.
  • You will have a dedicated project manager who takes full accountability for project completion—on time, on budget and of the highest standard. Renovating is not a side job for us as it might be for conventional builders; this is what we do and we’re fully committed to your project.
  • Your dedicated project manager handles everything from the consents and other paperwork right through to coordinating schedules with tradespeople. Your project manager is an easily accessible central source of information.
  • Our teams are very respectful and select only the best tradespeople for the job. Great organisation and project timing, along with trust and respect, generally allows you to live in your home during the whole renovation design and build process.
  • We only work locally, and therefore, we know the area, environment, and housing types in your neighbourhood as well as the local tradespeople best for your renovation.
  • Last but not least, we are renovation specialists. We only do renovations and extensions, and we do them well.
  • For a renovation design-and-build, you know you can trust the experts at Smith & Sons.


We do everything from adding a storey to full kitchen and bathroom renovations—as well as decks, laundries, granny flats and pools. The scope of our projects is limited only by what our clients want.
