Empowering You To Build


At Build in Common we believe anyone can renovate, build or develop property

Welcome! You've Got This!

Our products and community provide you with the practical knowledge of knowing "where to start", helping anyone project manage the trades for their renovation, new build homes or even have the confidence to coordinate an entire subdivision or commercial development. 


Are you thinking "I'd love to, but I don't know where to start?"

We are here to help. Using years of deep industry experience and building know-how, we provide you with the knowledge and confidence to ask the right questions, to the right person at the right time in the build cycle. We really do believe that you've got this!


How can we help you?

  • Understanding the build cycle from the moment you start planning will save you time, frustration and money. We get you started and help you understand when you are ready to press GO on your renovation, build or development.
  • We have been there, so let us give you the inside knowledge of what to expect, who does what and what not to do. Save time, save money and avoid costly mistakes!
  • It is hard to know what you don't know. That is why we give the questions that will put you in control. Your project, your money, your decision!


What do we offer?

  • To save you time we've created a suite of Digital Toolkits that are available for online purchase and direct download. Click, pay and they are yours; it is that easy.
  • We know that when you build the paperwork can be overwhelming. It is great to have it all in one place. Our Hardcopy Project Kits have been designed as the ideal project management folder perfect for keeping that paper trail under control. Delivered directly to your front door. Just open and get started.
  • Our Build in Common Community is made just for you. Access industry role models, experts and others who renovate, build and develop property. Be part of the tribe!

Single Mum, WA

Thank you Build In Common for helping to smooth the way with my recent kitchen renovation. This was my first renovation, and as a single mum I was feeling completely out of my depth, despite months of research. I had arrived at what I thought was my final design brief, that was until I read your checklist and realised I had missed a few key considerations!


Once that was adjusted, and I had completed my negotiations with my kitchen design company, I was able to again use your toolkit to make sure the contract I was signing was comprehensive and included everything it should.


The installation was a success!


Builder, NSW

If you want to renovate or develop property, and you are a newbie the Build in Common Toolkits will help you to be an informed and confident Project Manager. 

I would be very happy to work with clients using the Build in Common Toolkits; there are definitive positive benefits for all parties.


Full-time Student, Wife and Mother, WA

Just thought I'd let you know that I've had a quick read through everything in the Toolkit. 


I'm so grateful that I have this info, as there are a lot of things that I hadn't considered, and probably wouldn't have thought to do, from what questions to ask and checking what insurance is required, through to making sure that I get certificates/warranties for my records. I've realised that I will need to seriously consider the starting time for this project as I cannot have tradies here interrupting me when I'm trying to get final assignments done, or study for exams.


I'm only at the stage of creating a brief... but the Toolkit will help me to clarify my project brief and will now make sure that it is in writing so there can be no argument over exactly what I asked for!


For someone who has never undertaken a renovation, I am quickly realising just how much value is in this Toolkit.  If it prevents me from making even one minor error, your Toolkit will have been worth every cent!"
