We help you RENOVATE, BUILD and DEVELOP PROPERTY
The idea behind our Build in Common Toolkits came from repeated requests for help by friends and contacts looking to renovate, build or develop small-scale property projects.
It always came down to the same questions: "Where do I start?", "What should I do first?" and "Who do I need to speak to?"
Our solution is unique! Asking the right questions gives you the right information on which you can make informed decisions for you and your family.
Stay ahead + in touch
For the first time, you can have the build-cycle explained from start to finish, providing all the questions you need to ask yourself AND of building professionals before and during the project cycle. No need for lengthy courses, searching the internet for hours or reading a stack of books.

"From beginners to builders, the Build in Common Toolkit has helped us gain the confidence to build our dream home. Before laying our hands on the guide we were procrastinating and unsure of what steps, questions or options we should explore. This simple to use project toolkit removed any ambiguity and gave us a logical framework to follow step by step with our builders saving us valuable time and money."
