Our team has successfully completed numerous projects ranging from small renovations to large-scale extensions that both increase the value of a property whilst allowing families to enjoy their bayside lifestyle.

Why Choose Highett?

Originally, Highett was a suburb of mostly single-storey homes. However, due to the large plots of land that are available, residents have been able to extend and renovate upward and outward. This has made Highett one of the highest growth bayside suburbs in Melbourne. 

Highett Road itself has been undergoing some major changes in recent times which has made it become an even better community space. There’s a village feel to this suburb and the people are extremely nice, which is evident by the friendliness of the shop keepers and residents in general.
