"Creating sanctuaries with the elegance of design and the art of building"

We help our clients bring their visions to life virtually before turning them into reality.

“Being able to visualise your project virtually before construction commencing means that we can make changes to the design prior to any building work starting. This process saves time during the project as well as ensuring that we are all on the same page and there are no surprises at the end of it all. For the entire project you will only be dealing directly with Darren and I making it a more personal experience instead of being handed through multiple people. All of our sub-trades have worked with us for years and understand the level of service we expect them to provide throughout the project and we pride ourselves with the quality of the work we do as well as the customer experience we provide.”

About Us

Hi , we are the Warrens and we are so pleased that you have stopped by.

Not only do we run Prima Build together we also run our lives together as a happily married young couple.

Darren has been a builder for over a decade , he has been described as a perfectionist with a keen eye for detail and our clients are usually sad to see him go once a project is finished since he feels apart of the family. He learnt to build from his father who taught him the old school way of building , Darren has combined this old school way of building with his perfectionism to create finishes on projects which you can’t fault.

Livia has been in the bathroom/building industry for over a decade and has been in roles with suppliers involving Merchants , Interior Designers, Architects and Developers so she has kept up with the current trends and understands what brands are a great quality . Her true passion lies in Interior Design and helping clients combine their personalities into their renovations whilst ensuring the end design is a stunning , timeless Sanctuary.

We love having a chat with our clients over a cup of coffee to learn more about their needs, wants, dreams, fears and concerns of the process. Send us a message we would love to have a chat with you soon.

Full Renovations

Renovations are the cornerstone of our company. There is nothing more satisfying than taking a tired, outdated home and imbuing it with fresh life and a touch of magic. Prima Build specialise in working with challenging spaces– but we will work alongside every client to ensure their “reno” yields the absolute best results. Whether it’s a bathroom makeover or the addition of an extra storey, we guarantee you’ll be delighted with our work.

Kitchens and Bathrooms

Two of our favourite spaces within a home , they are also the ones which can add the most value too. We will be right by your side helping you through making design decisions as well as helping guide you with the product selections. We have a fantastic team of suppliers who we trust and know back their product/services up so we can ensure that the final result is one you will be happy with for years to come.

Virtualise Studio

Virtualise Studio was born when we realised how hard it was for our clients to truly visualise what their space could look like prior to construction commencing.  Our clients visions are combined with Livia’s passion for interior design to create virtual drawings which look realistic. Clients are walked through the design , either on a laptop or a VR headset option can also be requested. Being able to see what a design is going to look like means that we can make changes prior to any construction commencing.

“You have done such an amazing job with our bungalow renovation, we are so happy with it and it is just how we hoped and imagined it would be.

We never thought a renovation could be this stress-free and we put that down to your careful planning and consistently keeping us informed. We have found you to be meticulous, working to a very high standard, and expecting the same from all your tradies.

We felt you showed pride in your workmanship and this is reflected in the quality of the build. We also appreciated how tidy you left our house each day as it is not easy living in a house with two small children while renovations are going on. It has been so great working with you on this project, and we feel a bit sad that we won’t be seeing you around anymore. All the best for your future projects – we have been, and will continue to recommend you to all our friends and family.”

We couldn’t write a more glowing recommendation for the team at Prima Build. Darren and Livia completed our bathroom and laundry renovation in 2019. Darren oversaw the project management and all trades were efficient and respectful of the home environment – the site was left spotless every night. Darren was very accommodating of our last-minute additions/amends to the scope of work and had everything in-hand. We would love to work on another project with the Prima Build team in the future.

“We couldn’t recommend Prima Build highly enough to anyone undertaking a renovation or extension of their home.

As operators of an architectural design company, we needed a builder who could not only work with our crazy ideas but was also meticulous in their attention to detail. Darren’s high standards and comprehensive knowledge made the project hassle-free. He was able to work with us to optimize the use of the available space and his workmanship was always impeccable. Livia was able to recommend fixtures that worked perfectly with the style of the house without compromising on functionality.

Both Darren and Livia were always a pleasure to deal with and dedicated themselves to our project as if it were their own home. We will definitely be using Prima Build for the next stage of our renovation and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”
