Shire Build Goal
At Shire Build our goal is to make the entire building process as easy and seamless as possible, while guiding you through the various stages of your building project.
We strive for the highest level of finish regardless of the project size and always endeavour to keep to your budget.
We achieve this by exceptional communication with you, the client, as well as our various specialist contractors and suppliers, allowing your project to run smoothly and on schedule.
The most important part of the building process is the Builder - Client relationship. Honesty, Trust and Integrity is at the core of our business starting from the Initial Contact, throughout Construction and After Completion of the project
Our Building Process
When you make contact for the first time either by phone, email or online our staff will assist in providing you with detailed information to educate you on the building process and help you to move forward to the next stage.
We will ask questions about the project, for example,
Are you at the very start of the building process needing assistance with Designs and Approvals? - At Shire Build we can provide Feasibility Estimates based on Concept Plans to assist you in making decisions on how to proceed with your dream home, while working within your budget.
Have you already got Plans and Council Approval? - We can provide a Full Detailed Quotation based on Detailed Plans ready to move towards the Construction Phase.
We can assist you by arranging an onsite meeting where we can discuss designs, fixtures and finishes that will work within your budget to achieve the best possible results for your project inside & out.
We provide ideas and inspiration from past projects to help you picture what your new project may look like, whether it be maximising internal space with clever storage ideas or designer features to make your house that little bit more special. It could be the inspiration for an amazing entertaining area inside or out.
Once you have selected Shire Build for your project, we get to work before the project starts by guiding and involving you through the various steps from Design to Construction.
We can assist you with obtaining your Construction Certificate which is a formal approval allowing you to start construction
We can provide various consultants such as Engineers designs & specifications or reports
We can introduce you to our team of suppliers to help you finalise your fixtures and finishes including kitchen joinery & appliances, bathroom fixtures and tiles, wardrobes & storage etc.
Our Staff will assist you every step of the way to make sure the process is easy & stress free.
We will pre plan your project so it runs smoothly. We will have regular onsite meetings to manage the week to week construction and provide guidance on the up and coming decisions, trades and materials.
Communication is Key to the success of the project! All of the above is managed with our Personalised Building Software Program which you will have 24/7 access to. It keeps everything in One Place: You can easily access the program via your mobile phone, your PC or tablet and see all communications, emails and decisions in the one place.
You will be able to track your progress payments to date, costs of selections or variations made during the project so you always know your up-to-date spending and projected costs. You will even be able to see the project progress weekly from the site as we upload regular progress photos of the job from start to finish. At project completion all job photos are downloaded and provided to the client for their records.
Our goal for every project is to reach this exciting phase where we hand over the keys to your completed project!

PORTFOLIO OF WORK
HOME RENOVATION & ADDITION 2018
DANIELLE & JONATHAN ~ PETERSHAM
Old Federation Charm meets 21st Century Modern Luxury
This project had a clear distinction between the two eras by paying respect to the Federation era on the Ground Floor Entry Level by renovating various rooms, rebuilding a bathroom and adding on a new Master Bedroom with palatial Walk In Robe and Ensuite. These areas included recycled & new federation style timber doors, skirtings, architraves and ornate plaster cornices throughout. With a new timber hardwood floor and a complete restoration & paint job throughout, the Ground Floor Level was completed to provide the charm of the Federation period, with all modern finishes & joinery to complement the design.
A new set of hardwood stairs was placed in the formal lounge room down to the Lower Ground Floor. This is where the Federation stopped and Modern Contemporary started. Polished concrete floors with in slab heating, clean sharp lines of the plasterboard walls and ceilings connecting to full height bi fold doors and windows provides a feel of open space & natural light flowing through the new extension.
Designer joinery & finishes throughout including the guest bedroom/bathroom, kitchen with butler’s pantry, laundry & powder room provides the Luxury that exudes from every direction you look. The renovation was completed with a spacious outdoor entertaining area & custom built pool with heating, limestone paving throughout, a custom built BBQ with stone top plus landscaping of grass, pebbles and retaining walls, providing a home ready for the clients and their young family to move straight in.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMER HAD TO SAY: We have engaged Craig and the team twice now for major renovations in the inner west of Sydney. The most recent one being our home in Petersham bringing many challenges of an old home, separated into 3 apartments, sloping block and an extension requiring excavation.... oh and a pool! The results are outstanding and we love our home. From the planning phase, to scheduling, onsite meetings, the team are into the detail and provided options where issues are uncovered. Those options come with a professional opinion on the best way forward which is key to those not in the trade!
We highly recommend the Shire Build team, from admin to specialized trades, you are in extremely capable hands. Thanks again Shire Build, you are a pleasure to work with.

MAJOR RENOVATION & FIRST FLOOR ADDITION 2017
MEL & JAMES, PEAKHURST HEIGHTS
Make Old....New Again!
This 70’s brick veneer house had a good layout & stable footings allowing for a new first floor addition to be built on top, designed by David Neate from Neate Projects, allowed for the much needed extra bedrooms & separate lounge area for the growing kids to have more space.
This extra space upstairs provide the clients with the opportunity to make some major modifications to the ground floor layout creating a new open plan & entertaining area flowing out to a new Merbau hardwood deck, huge swim spa & Versi Clad roof allowing the clients all year round use.
The clients engaged an interior designer which we collaborated with on features such as engineered flooring, double sided wood fireplace with a tiled facade, custom joinery to the kitchen, pantry, laundry and master ensuite. Externally the renovations was blended to old by rendering the lower ground floor brickwork & paining to match the new upper floor addition, plus re-roofing, guttering and downpipes allowed this renovation to come together to create a new home that you would think was always there.
"We had a brilliant experience with Craig, Jordan, Leah & Co. during our recent renovation. The team were professional, collaborative & patient as we navigated our first major renovation. The project was managed to time and with quality results. We are loving our new home! Thankyou Shire Build".
