Why you should work with Switched On

14 August 2017

We are building renovation and alteration specialists. But so are lots of companies. So why should you put us at the top of your list; what is the Switched On difference? We think there are lots of reasons:

We have all the trades under one roof

We’re a one-stop shop with a large team of over 50 Master Builders, Master Painters and Master Electricians. Our collective knowledge and skills offering means we can handle jobs of any size and complexity.

It’s easy to get a quote

Having all trades under one roof makes it so much easier for you to get a quote because you don’t have to contact multiple people.

Hassles have been eliminated

Our project managers live for detail and take care of every little thing for you. Forget the stress of chasing building consents and coordinating tradesmen, they ensure everything runs smoothly.

We offer fixed prices

To further make things as hassle free as possible, we offer fixed price renovation packages for decks and bathrooms.

And we’re backed by experience

Switched On Building Solutions has been around for over 30 years, during which time we’ve completed over 25,000 projects!

So what can you expect if you choose to work with us? Here’s a rundown of our process:

First consultation

After we receive your enquiry, we’ll get on the phone and have a quick chat about your requirements. Then we’ll arrange a time that suits you to come and get a bit more detail.

Site visit

It’s time for a more in depth discussion about what you want your project to achieve and what your budget is. We’ll also bring things like catalogues and swatches to get an idea of what you’re after style-wise. Measurements will be taken and by the end of the site visit we should have a detailed scope of works.


At this point we get in our experienced quantity surveyor to price your job. When you get your quote it will be quite detailed and will include fittings, materials and labour. For smaller projects you’ll receive this via email, but when you’re making a bigger investment (projects over 25K) we’ll sit down with you to talk it through in detail. We like to be thorough and precise when quoting so please allow around two weeks for a quote turnaround. Anything over 15K is put in a Master Builders Contract.

Concept planning and consent

Once the quote has been signed off you’ll need to put down a deposit; this pays for your concept drawings. We contact a designer or architect to draw up your plans and will collaborate with them to submit any applications for consent with Council.



This is the most hands off part for you as we have a team of expert project managers that take care of every detail. Although we may need to call on you to make certain decisions during the process, you don’t have to do anything during this stage, but you’re more than welcome to remain involved.

Project completion

Your project manager will walk you through the finished project to get your sign off and will also sort out your code of compliance.

After care

We’ll follow up with you within 90 days to ensure you’re still satisfied with the work we’ve done.
