Architecture and Interior Design
Planning a home renovation but no idea where to start?
Looking for a one-stop-shop that can handle it all from go to whoa?
We manage everything from design concepts to construction completion.
At BCT Group we take the stress out of home renovation by handling everything from design to construction. Our architects and interior designer will work with you to design a home that is beautiful, buildable and doesn’t break the bank.
Why should you choose a company that designs AND builds your home?
You'll get a design you can afford.
When we started out, we quoted jobs with plans prepared by others only for our clients to realise that the design was way out of their budget. At BCT Group, our designers consult directly with the construction team from the get go so they only present you with design concepts that align with your budget.
You benefit from local expertise.
It’s vital that your architect and builder understand the local conditions as well as all relevant building regulations. Before design begins, we carefully analyse your site to ensure we understand the structural integrity and any potential limitations to the scope of work. Because we only work in the inner western suburbs of Melbourne, we have a thorough understanding of your hood (including that highly reactive soil).
We’re pretty darn good at what we do.
Our design and construct team know their stuff. They’ll come up with ideas you haven’t even considered and go beyond the basics to create a home that suits your life and reflects your style. In addition to detailed drawings and a quality build, we can help you select everything from tiles and tapware to paint colours and pendant lights.
