The key to a smooth-running, successful and enjoyable renovation experience is a strong team.


And a good relationship between architect/designer and builder is an essential part of your team.


If you’re considering a renovation and don’t know where to start on your building design, a lot of initial questions can be answered by a good architectural designer.


  • Do I need planning permission?
  • What is a DA and when is it required?
  • What is a complying development and does my proposal fit into this category?
  • My property is heritage listed, what does that mean/involve?
  • I need help with design/drawings
  • How can I work the layout to its maximum benefit?
  • I’d like to involve an interior designer
  • I bought a property with DA approval but want to make some changes, how do I go about this?
  • How long do approvals take?

What to look for when getting a quote

It’s important to know what to look for as you may get some estimates which seem comparatively less than others.

Take a closer look and there can be things missing, meaning you’ll get a nasty surprise as the costs mount up.

That won’t happen with YORK’s.

We quote for everything… that means the demolition, plumbing, electrical, splashbacks… It is priced to complete.

YORK’s provide you with talented carpenters, painters, tilers, plumbers and electricians – all without having to shop around yourself.

And remember, we’re a small builder, so we can turn things around quickly and professionally yet make it an enjoyable process with a friendly, approachable team.

We’ll get back to you with an estimate and timeline within 48 hours

Plan your budget & goals carefully.

It’s so easy to overspend or rush into jobs which will cost you further down the track. Generally it’s a good idea to factor in an extra 10% contingency budget. And think about what is worth paying a little bit more for now which can help to reduce bills and make things more comfortable while you are living there.

We’ll guide you

The beauty of using YORK’s is that we have the best renovation specialists to hand and take the hassle out of all the different options and decision-making, because we help guide you.

The first thing we do is to book a consultation with you, so that you can describe the vision you have for your renovation.

Planning and design

At your consultation, we’ll review and measure up the space and discuss design options such as layout, cabinetry, flooring, lighting, plumbing, fittings and finishes.

From here we guide you as to the best solution for your property’s structure, your lifestyle and your budget.
