The benefits of property development

Build a quality home with the ultimate peace of mind.

Renovating can be a costly and potentially risky undertaking. Costs have the potential to blow out dramatically as it is hard to know what hazards may present themselves once you ‘open up’ the building.

A good example is the discovery of unseen structural problems, which can be hidden by Gyprock and floor coverings. One of these structural problems and a very real threat is the discovery of termites or termite damage.

A recent study by CSIRO found that 32 percent of Australian homes have a history of termites. This was confirmed by the Institute of Australian Architects who found that pre-purchase home inspections showed termite damage in one-third of all homes inspected. It is also important to recognise that most insurance companies do not cover termite damage.

Weeks Building Group only build with termite proof Supaloc steel framing. There is simply no safer option..



Termite damage became a reality for a client who recently unto a knockdown rebuild project with weeks.

Donna and her husband had lived happily in their home for a number of years however they felt the need to upgrade. After much consideration and number crunching the decision was made to start from scratch and undertake a complete redevelopment as opposed to a renovation on their existing property.

The existing residence had remained still and the furniture in its place for years. There was no indication or even a hint of the damage that was progressing behind their walls.

Upon moving a single item of furniture in preparation fro the demolition process the discovery was made. It presented itself as a series of small holes in the wall and upon further investigation the discovery sent chills down the home owners spines. Termites had been happily eating away the very skeleton of their family home and the frame behind was reduced to a crumbled mess.

It was with a great sense of relief that they contacted us to say how grateful they were that they had made the decision before this discovery to rebuild with Steel frames.




Upgrade your home – not your location.

More often than not the desire to relocate is not driven by wanting to change our location but rather the dream of living in a beautiful new home. Stay in the location you love and build the home you’ve always dreamed of.


Generate the ultimate return from your block of land.

Development of multiple dwellings can create a number of exciting opportunities: wealth, an investment or a home. Opportunities come in different shaped packages and sometimes it’s hard to envisage the potential of a block of land. In addition building regulations and design parameters are changing constantly, so it’s hard to keep abreast of exactly what your land might be capable of supporting. Weeks Building Group has the creativity and experience to provide you with outstanding design concepts that will work for you, your lifestyle and your block!

We relish the opportunity to develop your property to its full potential and are experienced in managing the entire process – from design, to subdivision, to demolition and construction.
