  • New home - Bower Street Manly

    … a reliable, honest and excellent builder!


    "We, together with our architects, after much deliberation, decided to employ the services of Network Building Pty Ltd to construct our new home in the suburb of Manly. Our home was to be built on a sloping vacant block of land with the foundation being on sandstone.

    During our initial discussions with Network Building’s Director, Stuart Whitehall, we found him to be an open, honest and motivated person. Together with learning about Stuart’s previous experience in the construction industry, this was an important factor in our decision to engage Network Building.

    Stuart displayed an outstanding ability in co-ordinating his team to work together with our architect, interior designer and engineer to create our new home that encompassed various changes we required during construction.

    We were in regular contact and had regular site meetings where we were always kept up to date with progress on our job and forecasts of decisions that we were to make well in advance of time.

    At the completion of our new home our decision to employ the services of Network Building proved to be the right one. We are pleased to say that we had a builder who has provided us with a high quality project, and who had a terrific ability to control and adhere to our costs budgets within a reasonable timeframe.

    We would have no hesitation in recommending Network Building Pty Ltd to anyone in the future who is looking for a reliable, honest and excellent builder. We also look forward to working with Network Building again on any future building works."

    Network Building to the rescue …


    "We have a lot of good things to say about Stuart Whitehall from Network Building Pty Ltd. He took over a renovation to our house that another builder had botched up.

    Stuart got it done and really looked after us.

    Getting Stuart and his team involved really saved us. We went from between a rock and a hard place (incomplete shell abandoned by the previous builder) to just watching everything come together smoothly.

    Unlike my first builder, when Stuart’s on the job you can clearly see his devotion to detail and the pride in his work.

    I’ve already booked Stuart in for my next renovation job. No need to waste time and money on anyone else"

  • Inspecting Network Building's projects over the years

    An engineers perspective …


    "As the Director of Peninsula Consulting Engineers, we have been the structural engineers on several substantial new homes, alterations and additions and remedial works, with Network Building Pty Ltd over a number of years.

    Network Building’s team has proven to be competent, knowledgeable and professional in all aspects of building work. Their ability to interpret and implement both engineering drawings and details is excellent.

    Network’s ability to forecast the need for additional details to assist with the necessary timing required to co-ordinate various trades is an attribute and is one that can only be gained through experience and excellent communication.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Network Building Pty Ltd in the future"

  • Renovations, then a new carport, West Pymble

    … a very high standard of workmanship.


    "I live adjacent to a National Park placing my home at 'high risk' from termite activity. Unfortunately, significant damage was done to timber frames and roof beams which required almost a total rebuild of an area of the home.

    Network Building Pty Ltd took on this project and did an excellent job completing the work on time and on budget. This included taking the opportunity to upgrade this area installing double glazed windows, cavity wall insulation, additional storage cupboards, new plumbing in the toilet and wet bar.

    Some three years later, another project arose – erect a carport as an extension to the garage, construct a new driveway with retaining walls/drainage and refurbishing a courtyard and steps.

    I had no hesitation in contacting Network Building again who assisted in arranging the relevant professionals to work on the project – architect, engineer, certifier, plus assistance in submitting the Development Application to the Local Council.

    In spite of experiencing heaving rain for a couple of weeks, the project was completed in a timely manner and shows a very high standard of workmanship.

    I would recommend Network Building Pty Ltd to anyone seeking an honest, reliable builder."

  • Alterations and additions, Pymble

    … delight of the Lady of the House!


    "Our project was demolition of an existing timber verandah and access stairway and construction of a new timber verandah and reposition of stairway.

    Network Building Pty Ltd were mid range in pricing, however overall were considered best offer after considering the detailed site discussion explaining quality of materials to be used and procedure for undertaking the work required.

    Network was the only company who recognised that part of the original verandah construction supported a portion of house roofing and during the demolition and construction a temporary support would be required. The work was started on time and finished to proposed schedule, we were blessed with good weather.

    During the construction phase Network Building continually discussed with us work to be done and materials to be used, with plenty of samples for us to consider. Minor changes requested by us were happily accommodated, much to the delight of the Lady of the House!

    On completion, advice was given as to the recommended maintenance required for an outdoor timber verandah to give long life serviceability.

    Site staff were skilled trades people and good communicators and put in a full days work when on site.

    We would have no hesitation in recommending Network Building to carry out any building work"

  • Apartment renovation Sydney Woollahra

    An enjoayable process........


    Network Building Pty Ltd was appointed as the principle building contractor to renovate an apartment for me in Sydney during August 2013.

    The renovation was to be undertaken in a two level luxury apartment building on a busy road. The works were done extremely efficiently and were completed in the timeframe specified.

    As I do not reside in Sydney, I had an interior designer working together with Stuart on my behalf. Stuart and I would communicate via email. I visited the site only twice during construction and any queries I had or changes I needed were attended to immediately. Stuart and his team were conscious of other tenants within the complex and always left the property in a clean and tidy manner.

    I am extremely happy with the work done and would highly recommend Network Building Pty Ltd to anyone wanting to renovate an apartment.

  • Design Driven Project

    Structural Engineers Comments......


    While working with Stuart and his team on a high profile residence in Dover Heights, I was impressed by his attention to detail while still maintaining an overall vision of the project as a whole.

    Stuart was genuinely committed to delivering the best built solution for his clients. Considering the broad array of structural components and requirements given the property location only a conscientious and experienced builder could have completed these works satisfactorily.

    With there high level of workmanship and eye for detail I would definetly recommend Stuart and Network Building Pty Ltd for "design driven projects".

  • New Home, Shelly Beach, Manly

    ... a great builder to do any job large or small.


    "After a lengthy design and approval process we were almost put off building our dream home in a dream locating sitting above Shelly Beach as we knew the most difficult part was still to come, the construction. The project was enormous and we knew we needed an understanding builder, one with a can do attitude and one who would build with the highest degree of quality and not compromise. Stuart Whitehall of Network Building Pty Ltd said he could deliver and having seen his recent project across the road from our house, a beautiful Tuscan style house, we were impressed.

    Stuart’s character, good organisation skills, respect from all subcontractors and true concern for delivering a quality home was evident during each step of the building process. His honesty, trust and professional know-how allowed me to sleep well at night and gave us great comfort that we were getting the best service the entire time that our home was being built.

    I always got the sense that Stuart truly enjoys building and working with people … and that people like working with Stuart. This was especially evident when various trades would always attend the site at short notice when required. Stuart never used short cuts to achieve a desired outcome and worked closely with our architect to solve any issues that we encountered. In fact, many issues were highlighted long before they became costly mistakes and many practical solutions which were used could only have come from a highly skilled builder.

    We made a number of changes as we built, which is a frustration to many builders, but Stuart was always accommodating and enthusiastic.

    Stuart was always at the end of the phone to answer any questions and was always professional in his dealing with us, subcontractors, interior designers, interior decorators,neighbours, rangers or professional services during the construction. Many demanded his time when they visited the site and he always made himself available.

    All records and site management were of the highest standards, the site was always clean showing us the pride he had in his work. Stuart only accepts excellence in the quality of work from his team and understands the meaning of customer satisfaction. Not only did Stuart deliver a quality home but he met our drop dead date to move in.

    I have subsequently used Network Building on a number of smaller projects and have always received the same level of service and quality.

    If we build another home we would definitely use Network Building and would recommend Stuart to anyone looking for a great builder to do any job large or small"

  • Interior Designer

    …the quality of finish is to be admired.


    "I am the Director of Briony Fitzgerald Design, a bespoke interior design business that has been operating for over 15 years. In all our projects, we work in close collaboration with the client, architect and builder.

    I have had the opportunity of working with Network Building Pty Ltd on many projects of various sizes and complexity. I have found Stuart and the Network Building team to be competent, knowledgeable and professional in all aspects of building work on every project we have worked together on. After completing previous projects with Stuart and understanding his desire to always provide a high quality product, I recommended that he be in charge of construction of a new three level architecturally designed home for my brother. This project was a great success and is a landmark property, where attention to detail and pride in workmanship is evident throughout.

    I was later involved with Network Building during the construction of a large two level home overlooking Shelly Beach in Manly. Again, this project was another success due largely to the efficiency and organisation skills demonstrated by Stuart and his team.

    Network’s ability to achieve timeframes and adhere to cost budgets whilst not jeopardising the quality of finish is to be admired and is a skill developed by only an experienced building contractor.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Network Building Pty Ltd to any future clients and / or architects and would look forward to working together again"

  • Major renovations - Cammeray

    We would highly recommend Stuart and his team …


    "My husband and I have had the very good fortune to have been recommended to Stuart Whitehall of Network Building Pty Ltd about ten years ago to complete a significant renovation on our home in Cammeray at that time. Subsequently we have had Stuart undertake a number of different building and renovation projects over the past ten years with the most recent being the addition of a deck on our home in Clontarf that was completed in December 2010.

    Stuart has the ability to achieve agreed timeframes and can work under pressure whilst not losing the quality finish.

He is honest, reliable and uses a team of sub-contractors that offer the same. Stuart’s team are always courteous and easy to deal with on all aspects of the building projects.

  • A builder for all 4 seasons ...


    "I first met Stuart Whitehall (Network Building Pty Ltd) when I was the architect for a substantial luxury new home in Manly overlooking beautiful Shelly Beach and Stuart was the builder who had been selected for the job.

    Over the course of the next two years Stuart and his team turned 400+ drawings and countless client and architect changes into a magnificent family home.

    The work was excellent quality and my client was extremely pleased with the end result.

    Stuart is a great communicator and seems to have a knack for getting neighbours and other parties on side, ensuring the job runs smoothly.

    From an architect’s perspective Stuart is an ideal builder, he is very easy to work with, seems to have all the best trades at a moments notice and has flawless paperwork and top workmanship every time."

  • Subdivision - Freshwater Sydney

    ......reliable, meticulous tradesman!!


    We purchased a large block of land with a small existing home close to the street end of the property in Freshwater. Our foresight was to sud-divide the property not long after purchasing the block. We then went thru the process of engaging a civil development engineer to put together the necessary documentation required by Local Council to put us in a position to start work. The next step was to find a building contractor to carry out the works!.

    After chatting with family and friends we received recommendations on contractors capable of completing our works, Network Building Pty Ltd was one such company.

    Network Building`s Director, Stuart Whitehall was very good with his time, so after many meetings and preliminary costing`s we decided to engage the services of Network Building Pty Ltd to carry out all the works associated with our construction / subdivision works.

    Now that the works are complete, looking back......we made the correct decision.

    Stuart was very easy to work with, he had ability to coordinate each trade required so as to avoid delay and streamline the works on site. The works also entailed opening / digging a large hole beneath the council footpath and road to enable a new sewer connection and water supply. Network Building barricaded the road and made a pedestrian bridge over the footpath so both public pedestrians and road traffic was unaffected. We were most impressed.

    Stuart was in regular contact with our design engineer clarifying detail and asking relevant questions in order to ensure the works carried on unimpeded. Any decisions we were required to make, we were given plenty of notice and kept informed all the way.

    At the completion of our subdivision works our design engineer required the "as built works" surveyed. He commented that "we had a very experienced and precise builder on the job as the design levels have been acheived almost to the millimetre". This again proved our decision to employ the services of Network Building to be the right one.

    We are now very pleased to say we engaged an honest and experienced building contractor to carry out our subdivision works. Stuart`s team also carried out some "odds and ends" work on the existing home in the front of the property for which we are grateful.

    We would have no hesitation in recommending Network Building Pty Ltd to anyone in the future who is looking for a reliable, honest and experienced builder. We will also look forward to working with Network Building again on our future building works.
