Tonkin Schutz design build manage and perform every step of your design and construction project in-house - from site selection and feasibility studies, to applying that last coat of paint. We even fabricate our own steel, concrete panels and aluminum windows.

Tonkin Schutz design build maximise your investment with intelligent design and superior efficiency, arising from experience, integrity and a unique hands-on approach.

This all-in-one system means three things:

Superior operational and cost efficiencies

Our vast experience and expertise makes us more efficient at each task, while our ability to do almost everything in-house minimises the need for bringing in third-parties and cuts out the middle-man. This saves on time and cost in every stage of development, and we pass these savings on to our clients.

Experience and inside knowledge in all areas of development

Our hands-on approach not only ensures that we can give you the best advice, but it also means that each of our experienced employees benefit from the practical knowledge of the rest of the team. For example, we know exactly how much materials will cost, the legal implications of each option, and how the construction workers will approach each specification. This means they can make the best decision every time, with no unpleasant surprises.

Ability to deliver exactly what we promise

Due to our all-encompassing experience and control, we can give you accurate and rapid appraisals, and then ensure that what we say is what you get. For example, traditionally, projects are costed by a third-party quantity consultant, who estimates costs by the book. When the project is given to the subcontractors who actually source the materials and perform the labour, what you end up paying can vary dramatically from the original estimate. Because we fabricate and source our own materials, and perform our own labour, we can ensure inaccuracies like this don’t happen.

In addition to these advantages, Tonkin Schutz design build have a long-term approach to developing products that are designed with intelligence and flexibility to meet both your immediate and future needs.

Our experience, foresight and efficiency deliver the best value-for-money, maximising your investment every time - as is evident from our many repeat clients.
