The Design phase is really a creative journey finding out all about you – and what you want in your renovation.

It’s a very exciting time where you get to unleash your creativity and ideas onto paper so we can help you form a clear and concise picture of what your renovation needs to entail.

With planning – we get technical.

We take all your ideas that were mapped out originally and ensure that each of them is physically possible to do.

The day is finally here! Our builder arrives on site, tradespeople start buzzing around and soon your renovation project is in full swing! While it would be easy to sit back and wonder what is actually going on, all the initial design and planning processes are coming together, with each builder, tradesperson, and materials all falling in place!

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 process of designing and building a construction project with one company managing the entire process from start to finish. This applies to renovations also as the process of a renovation can be similarly complex to that of building a house. Choosing a single company to manage the design and build of your renovation can be far more efficient, as well as providing cost savings throughout the entire process.

This is especially true when ensuring that the initial design will fit within your budget rather than the typical scenario where the architect designs something beautiful and amazing, which you simply cannot afford and therefore have already wasted time and money before even getting started. We ensure that all aspects of your renovation project work in sync to provide you the ultimate renovation within budget.

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 design and consents begin, which ultimately saves you time and money.
  • We provide a detailed cost estimate breakdown so you know the costs which you may then choose to
    move around.
  • You will have a dedicated project manager who takes full accountability for project completion… on time,
    on budget and of the highest standard. This is not a “side job” for us as it would be if you contracted a builder
    and other tradespeople. We are fully committed to your project.
  • Your dedicated project manager handles everything from consents, to paperwork and coordinating times
    with the tradespeople. Your project manager is one 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 work only locally and know the area, environment, housing types and the local tradespeople best for your
  • 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.
