Extension and Renovation Services Brisbane

Update Renovate, Brisbane’s Second Storey and extension specialists, provide a complete service covering all aspects of design and construction from the initial appraisal and design stage through to construction and post project follow-up.

As design and construction professionals we strive to provide solutions to achieve your requirements which best suits your needs and budget.

By providing a comprehensive design and construction service, we aim to make the process of extending and renovating a smooth, trouble free and exciting time for you and your family.

Design & Drafting

We are a unique Brisbane residential building company offering in-house design and drafting tailored to suit your extension and renovation requirements and budget. Utilising industry leading software we provide detailed floor plans and designs with realistic 3D imagery and a unique view of your project with a 3D virtual model for you to explore. Our drafting and design service covers all aspects of planning from initial appraisal and preliminary design to construction plans, applications and approvals.

Our point of difference from most drafting and architectural firms is that Ray is a qualified  builder (not a salesperson like many other companies) bringing practical design principles to the  planning process, ensuring that proposed extension and/or renovation is functional, practical and most importantly cost effective.

How do you rate the initial consultation and concept design stage service?

We were very happy with the initial consultation with Kevin. He was both open and honest and had some great ideas that we hadn’t even thought about. Also we felt reassured that he knew the full building process, had a good understanding of building regulations and most importantly he wasn’t just a salesman for the company.

Thank you all for the excellent work you have done on our house over the past year. Everyone was polite, considerate and helpful and all work of an excellent standard. Thank you Kevin for your patience with us and the calm, efficent way you tackled all our requests and problems as they arose.

Secondly we cannot sing the praises of Rob and Lachy enough, they are not only talented carpenters they are also lovely guys who made our building experience very enjoyable, so much so that our 2 year old was in tears when they finished. We love our new home and don’t know how we lived without the space. So finally, thanks again you have a great team.
