Update Renovate has a team of qualified, experienced drafts people, builders and trades people who share one goal – to deliver the very best in workmanship, quality, attention to detail and customer service for your house extensions and home renovations.

Kevin Hattin

Principle Builder & Supervisor

Kevin Hattin realised early in his career the only way to guarantee a consistently high level of workmanship and professionalism was to own and manage his own business.

Starting out as Kevin Hattin Builder in 1986, he then formed Update Renovate, which has become a trusted family design and construction company since 1986.

Often referred to as “The Chief” Kevin is the principle builder and supervisor managing the job sites, coordinating trades and materials.

He is proud of the strong reputation he and his team have built up over the years, along with his strong base of referrals and repeat customers.

Ray Hattin

Manager, Drafting, Estimating & Design

Ray began his apprenticeship fresh out of high school with the goal of obtaining trade qualifications before progressing onto a design role with the practical knowledge and experience he would gain onsite. After completing his apprenticeship, Ray moved to Sydney for four years gaining valuable experience in drafting and estimating, working for a similar Building Company while his wife successfully graduated with her medical degree.

In 2014 we welcomed our son Ray back on board the Update Renovate Team returning to take on Norms roll as Draftsman and Estimator. With his design and construction experience Ray brings an intricate understanding of the Australian Standards and Regulations, Building Code of Australia, construction methods, materials, design, planning applications and processes.
