Knockdown Rebuild

Knockdown Rebuild

The Decision

Undertaking a knockdown rebuild can be a daunting task. You could be knocking down the house your family grew up in; looking to replace the house full of memories with something better suited to your needs today; or perhaps you've just found the wrong house on the right street. Whatever the reason, you need to be sure the people building your new home have your best interests at heart.

Why Knockdown Rebuild

- You get to stay in the same great neighbourhood you love. Plus there's no stamp duty and no changing schools.

- Unlike extending your current house there isn’t any need to worry about hidden surprises like upgrading sections of your current house that are no longer up to code, pest and bug damage or structural corrosion.

- You get to start again, building what you want instead of compromising around current design features.

Why Banyan Constructions

- Our staff have over 15 years of experience in the Canberra Building Market.

- The Banyan motto ‘Clever. Clean. Consistent.’ Is more than just words to us, it’s a reflection of how we build and our staff are committed to giving you that experience.

- We believe that this entire process should be stress-free! The Banyan staff will keep you in the loop with regular progress updates and scheduled supervised site visits so you never need to worry about how things are going.
