You may have done a lot of the preliminary work; had plans drawn,  submitted them to Council and received an approval and now you are ready to build. Perhaps you want to do some of the work yourself or may already have some trades lined up but the reality is you just don't have the time to be "the builder", after all you have a full time job and other lifestyle committments.

Lets face reality - Project Management or Building Supervision is a full time job generally done by professionals. 

Consider for a moment:

  • We can all drive a car but without a special licence we can't drive a Taxi.
  • Some people cut their own hair but you can't cut anyone elses without a hairdressing licence.
  • You can even do your own investing but you are not a licenced stockbroker or financial planner.

Yet many of us think we can complete one of the biggest projects, not to mention one of the biggest investments, in our life when we take on the professional, licenced builder's role. It is also generally a false economy as even if everything does go right;

Do you really know what you are looking at and supervising (particularly dealing with sub-contractors). When you take on the role of "builder" ultimately you are responsible for anything that goes wrong.

Would you know what each trade should be doing let alone how quickly, for what price, what should be happenig next and what potential future problems need to be addressed.

You obviously won't be paying "trade " prices not to mention being charged for mistakes and the dreaded "extras" or variations.

You will lose productivity in your work as proper supervision and project management will have to be completed generally during "normal" business hours, not to mention the paperwork and administration that you will have to fit in most likely at night or on weekends.

You will potentially be responsible for a minimum of 7 years warranty if you decide to sell.

Finally if you add the true value of your time to complete all these tasks to the loss of productivity in your own work and lifestyle, in real terms, you will probably have cost more than having it done by the professionals.

With all that in mind why not employ the professional services of  DBM Building and let the specialists take the worry out of bringing these plans to reality.

As a well established builder of new homes and renovations or additions, DBM Building know how to get a project from concept to completion quickly, effectively and efficiently with your best interests in mind at all times. As professionals not only can we pick up any home improvement project at any stage and see it through to completion but we can tailor a project management agreement to suit your specific needs and the complexity of your project in various ways such as:

  • A consultancy agreement where you may wish to complete much of the day to day activity yourself but would like assistance occasionally to sort the technical details or matters you are unsure of.
  • Fixed fees for project management either for the total project or on a time basis.
  • Project management on a "cost plus" basis where an agreed percentage is added to the invoice costs for the works as payment for our services. This is very common in commercial works as it is in fact the fairest method for both parties not to mention it is generally the cheapest and allows you absolute and total control of the project and most importantly the associated costs. This method allows total flexibility without penalty as it is totally transparent for all parties.
  • Provision of some or all of our specialist site staff, tradesmen and sub-contractors at an agreed rate.
  • A combination of the above to suit your particular circumstances.


Delivering the quality you expect, on time and on budget is where DBM Building provide a project management service that can really add value to your project and our experience will ensure your vision is realised with a minimum of worry.
