The process

A standard building process for an addition that requires development approval may include the following steps:

  •   Initial consultation
  •   Preliminary design drawings
  •   Cost estimate
  •   Final drawings & documentation
  •   Quotation
  •   Contract
  •   Development Approval, Construction Certificate
  •   The Build


After getting the design and finish of your addition right it only makes sense to keep it that way for as long as possible. Proven, durable materials and finishes are used to keep your investment looking good for years to come.

We use and recommend Dulux paints and Colourbond metal roofing. Framing timbers are at least H2 treated against termite attack. External fasteners are either galvanised or stainless steel. Our decking hardwoods have a high durability class rating.

As part of our service we can advise you for the ongoing maintenance of your house.

    From the inception David Porter demonstrated an understanding of our vision, providing valuable advice that facilitated fulfilling our needs and wishes. We utilised his drafting skills resulting in a plan to modify the existing dwelling that in many ways was better than an architect was able to provide in being more insightful to that would work with in the constraints of the existing building structure and guidance as to what fundamentally looks good.

    Mr Porter of Addington Constructions P/L was engaged by my client on a cost plus basis to build an extension to an existing dwelling in the Blue Mountains. The project was of a highly detailed nature and therefore required a skilled builder. Mr Porter completed the project successfully, within time and on budget. On this project I found Mr Porter and his team of skilled tradesman to be professional, diligent and fastidious. I would gladly recommend Mr Porter and Addington Constructions P/L for projects of a similar nature.
