If you want to save money but don’t want to take on the burden of building a project yourself, our team of project managers can plan, organise and control your build for you.

Our objective is to ensure your building project is completed within your budget, to your timeframe and with a minimum of fuss.

Our dedicated project managers will control your project over the course of three key stages: management, pre-construction and construction during which they will work to ensure all statutory requirements and council approvals are met, prepare tender packages and engage a suitable builder and prepare necessary contracts. Once construction begins, we will act as your advocate in answering the builder’s questions, adhering to the construction schedule and ensuring compliance inspections and reports are conducted.

As your project manager, we are your eyes and ears on the ground. Our role is to identify your goals, deliver you value, keep your costs under control and ensure your project is delivered in timely fashion.

From the moment I met Steven I knew I had made the right choice in using him and his services. I found Steven to be very approachable and very knowledgeable with the building industry standards. He was generous with his time onsite, providing me with a very detailed building report, which the clients received. I have no hesitation in recommending Steven or his services to any future clients.

Thank you again for your prompt response

Steven was a complete professional! He gave me a Quote before the job so I was aware of the price, he was very courteous and polite, and he did his job thoroughly and methodically. I would recommend SJN to everyone I know because they won’t be disappointed.

Steven was very good to deal with, I had referred a client of mine that needed his services, due to a home being newly built by a project builder.  Steven picked up many defects that totalled to approximately 40 items! Without his help, my clients would have moved into their brand new home facing problem after problem. Thanks to SJN, all items were rectified by the builder prior to occupation.

They rang quickly to book the job and kept me in the loop all the way. They were efficient, which was a bonus point and I was pretty impressed with their service.
