A holistic approach to design and construction

All great things in life start with a well thought out plan. We begin the DBS Residential building process by discovering what’s most important to you.

To create truly individual spaces that work both in terms of aesthetics and practicality, design and construction should be integrated from the project beginning through to final handover, and that’s how we work at DBS Residential.

design build contract

From your initial ideas right through to handover, we’ll be there with you to develop tailor-made design and build solutions. You’ll initially meet with Dan or Steve at your site to discuss your building project. We’ll listen to your ideas, establish what your budget is and advise on considerations and decisions that you’ll need to make. We’ll discuss site implications, council planning rules and submission, design stages, the external trades and services needed. We’ll then manage the consent process, the tradespeople and any other consultants needed to make sure there are no time and cost blowouts during the building.
