Capital Building specialise in major home renovation projects. Usually including new kitchens, laundries, bathrooms and new open plan living areas. Typically, these projects will include extensions, for example a new second storey with retreat, bedrooms and bathroom and/ or a new rear extension with a open plan kitchen, dining and living.

In many cases, it is possible to stay in your home during a renovation. However, for larger projects that involve extensive construction or major disruptions, it may be  necessary to temporarily relocate.

    What Our Clients Say

    Pranita C.
    We are delighted that we chose Capital for our extension project. Pierce, who was the first point of contact for us at Capital in the initial phases, was one of the main reasons for us to go with Capital. Pierce was very patient with us and made a lot of effort to understand and translate our requirements. They transformed our 2-bed villa into a 4-bed family house, not only by adding all that extra space but also by enhancing the appearance of our house to a modern, contemporary home. The process took approximately seven months (including Christmas break), which was very quick. We lived in the house while extending and had no trouble. The speed did not compromise the quality. All trades used were experienced and strived for perfection. Capital has a great team of people, well led by Travis. All our interactions with Capital team were professional and I would highly recommend Capital (CB) to anyone wanting to do an extension/transformation of their home.
    Response from the owner: Thankyou for the review Pranita. We are thrilled you are enjoying your new extension and it was great working with you also. Best of luck for the future, CBC Team.
    Dinesh M.
    We had our 3 bedroom single storey 1950s house transformed into a 2 storey 4 bedroom house. When we bought our place it was the best we could afford, and once we outgrew it we tried looking for something bigger but the cost is prohibitive and you'd have to move to the outer suburbs to get something reasonably sized. We approached several builders, and they1. Didn't even bother turning up,2. Demanded a $1000 payment for plans without even looking at the house3. Turned up, looked at us, and basically told us we couldn't afford it.Enter Dean from Capital Building. Over several meetings, he patiently and professionally visited our place, listened to our wants, offered us options, and generally gave us the feeling that we had a way forward. We would like to thank Dean for his enthusiasm and the confidence he gave us to go ahead with this exercise.Once permits were in place, we were handed over to the build team, and again, we were put at ease with their approachability and professionalism.We have never built before, so all this was new to us. The team at Capital was very good at explaining the processes and addressing our concerns. Travis, as the director, is a good operator and very switched on. Laura, our designer, helped us a lot with her input for the materials and components of the build. Tiffany kept us in the loop with constant communication regarding dates and activities.Andrew was the supervisor assigned to our build and was in charge of the team doing the work on our house. We want to thank him for his patience and the way he tried his best to make this process as smooth as possible.Make no mistake, a build of this nature is not a walk in the park. It is significant work and to live through it as we did with our young family can be challenging. However, Capital and their team genuinely did their best to make it as low impact on us as possible and 7 months later we basically have a brand new house. We still can't believe it sometimes.Thank you to the team at Capital. With the housing market being what it is, I think extensions like these are a great affordable option for families who grow out of their homes but want to stay in the suburbs where they've put down roots. Capital's 5 star reviews and growth are no accident. They are good at what they do and great to work with.We wholeheartedly recommend them.
    Response from the owner: Fantastic Dinesh, We are really glad you are enjoying the space and your review perfectly sums up our process and what we try to achieve. We agree, extensions are a quick and cost affective way to increase your space. Thanks again CBC Team.
    Craig C.
    Travis, Kyle and the rest of the Capital Building Team demonstrated professionalism, honesty, punctuality, great communication and experience throughout every stage of our build. They were a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend.
    Response from the owner: Hi Craig, Fantastic to hear from you! We are glad to hear everything is going well & you had a great experience with us. Thanks again, CBC Team
