Building with us is a partnership

At Turrell Building, we understand that building a custom home is a significant investment, and we want to ensure that our clients are informed and involved every step of the way. That’s why when you choose to build with us, you’ll receive regular updates throughout your entire building journey and quality meetings with education.

They will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have, and they will work closely with you until the project’s completion.

In addition to regular updates from your Site Project Manager, we also offer monthly site meetings. During these meetings, you will have the opportunity to walk through your home-in-progress with our team, and we will provide a detailed overview of the progress that has been made and what to expect at each stage. This is also an excellent opportunity for you to ask any questions or raise any concerns.

Clear communication and transparency are critical to a successful home-building experience, and we are committed to keeping our clients informed and involved every step of the way.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I should do a renovation/ addition or knockdown and build a new home?2024-02-06T07:04:03+00:00

We advise starting by always exploring the option of renovating/ adding to your existing home first if the existing integrity of the house is adequate. With our building team, we can help assess the existing home and then develop preliminary concept plans for you. Once these initial concept plans are established, we then estimate the renovation/ addition works. It becomes straightforward to weigh the costs of constructing a new home with comparable quality and features against your renovation/ addition expenses. This strategy enables you to make a well-informed decision about which route is most appropriate for your project. We also take into account the lesser costs for demolition and amending existing landscaping works that would need to be carried out if you went with the new build option.

Can I use my own designs?2023-12-20T04:41:11+00:00

Yes, Turrell Building will build your project from an existing plan you have prepared. Our in-house experts will meet with you to discuss the details of your design, the anticipated costs and the timeline.

Does Turrell Building do renovations as well as new homes?2023-12-20T04:40:39+00:00

Yes, as well as new homes, we have extensive experience doing renovations, first-floor additions and outdoor entertaining areas. Regardless of your needs, we can transform your vision into reality. We take pride in enhancing your home so the final transformation seamlessly flows with elegance.

Can you help me with the design of my new home or renovation?2023-12-20T04:40:13+00:00

Yes, our design services are a central part of our holistic approach to building unique homes. Our designers work closely with our long-term specialist trades to ensure your home closely matches the design.

Do you provide an interior designer?2023-12-20T04:38:43+00:00

At Turrell Building, we understand that the essence of a luxury home lies in its details. Our interior design services are not just an add-on; they are a central piece of our holistic approach to building homes as unique as our clients. With our in-house designers and colour consultants, we ensure that the interior of your home reflects your personal style and the high standards of Turrell Building.

What’s the cost of building with Turrell Building?2023-12-20T04:37:57+00:00

Turrell Building has built projects from $400,000 to $6 million. Our expert team creates stunning custom-built homes, renovations and additions that are of all styles, and sizes and have different access limitations. Each project just needs an initial discussion to advise a realistic all-inclusive budget estimate for the desired project. We often start from scratch and design a home/addition that’s unique to each client’s needs. Most importantly, the cost of your new Turrell Building home will be decided on before we enter the approval process, so there are no hidden surprises throughout the journey of construction.

How long does it take to design and price a home?2023-12-20T04:37:23+00:00

The first step you take on the journey with Turrell Building is to sit down with one of our team to share your thoughts and ideas about what you want in your home and what a realistic budget is. The Turrell Building team can take you through the realities of that idea. We will develop a realistic budget estimate and timeline for the project. This will enable you to understand whether it is possible.

Can Turrell Building take care of the demolition of my old home and take care of all approvals?2023-12-20T04:36:54+00:00

Yes. We can manage everything involved in the project. This includes all the paperwork for building approvals, the demolition of your existing home, the clean-up of your site after the home is finished, driveway, fencing, pool and landscaping. All you need to do is enjoy the experience.

How long is the build process?2023-12-20T04:36:27+00:00

This can be influenced by the approval process required for your new home. The Complying Development Certificate (CDC) can take 2 to 3 weeks for approval, while a Development Approval (DA) can take 2 to 4 months, depending on the council. The total build time is, on average, 10 to 13 months. Each project has a “project schedule” prepared and given to the owner at the beginning of the project.

What about Home Building Compensation Insurance?2023-12-20T04:35:54+00:00

HBC insurance is essential, and Turrell Building organises this with iCare before scheduling your project and preparing the HIA Building Contracts. We then provide you with a copy of your insurance certificate with the HIA contract so you have peace of mind that you are covered.

How many jobs do you have in the construction stages currently?2023-12-20T04:35:25+00:00

While other builders may have up to 80 projects at any given time, Turrell Building typically has between 6-8 projects in construction at one time and quality managed individually.

Do you install solar?2023-12-20T04:34:56+00:00

We have suppliers we work closely with that are fully up to date with the latest technology can assist and coordinate the installation within the build time.

Do you offer any call-back services?2023-12-20T04:34:15+00:00

Yes, we do. Many other builders and contractors refuse to attend the project after the mandatory two-year defect liability period under the NSW. If they do, it is under duress, but at Turrell Building, we always answer the call, and any past client is treated like a current client, and we help where we can.

Do you include a warranty with your homes?2023-12-20T04:33:44+00:00

Yes, Turrell Building has a market-leading warranty and guarantee program to ensure peace of mind for your build. We will discuss this in more detail during the initial consultation.

What are the initial steps for starting a project with Turrell Building?2023-12-20T04:33:13+00:00

Once you express interest in working with us, our first step is to arrange a site visit. This visit allows us to meet with you personally, understand the specifics of your site, and discuss your project in detail.

What happens during construction?2023-12-20T04:32:41+00:00

Once construction starts, we have regular onsite meetings (usually every two weeks) so you can walk through and see how we’ve progressed. It’s also a good chance to discuss the build with your project manager and dedic
