About ecoDBR

Remodelling spaces for a better living environment. YES we do DESIGN BUILD OR RENOVATE


Let us take the stress away and seamlessly guide you through the building process. Starting with the pre-planning of your project, onto the drawings for planning and building permit issue, to some of the actual processes required for structural alterations, to make way for installing your new kitchen, bathroom or extension in your existing home, or all the way through too the completed renovations and new builds, either single or two story.


ecoDBR build in double brick, reverse brick veneer and timber stud. But we are advocates for building with Insulated Concrete Formwork also referred to as ICF’s and Structural Insulated Panels (SIP’s).


Our very own registered builder, Malcolm, first stepped onto a renovation project back in 1976 at the age of 16. He has been involved in renovations and builds since then. He can now offer over 40 years of experience in the renovations and building scene. We bring, old school customer service along with quality tradespersons. We strive to keep you in the loop for all items concerning your build, aiming for zero mis-understandings or confusion between Client and Builder. 



We care, and we want you to have an environmentally friendly sustainable home, ready for now and for the future, by providing a flexibility in design that responds to the Client’s needs.

Such as:

  • Adult children

  • Elderly parents who require care

  • Younger people with disabilities


With an integrated efficient use of space it makes sense for many Australians to consider multi-generational living. 


As builders, we will dispose of waste via companies that recycle before it enters landfill. We reduce waste on site by the use of considered material choice and ordering quantities. If using components made within factories then waste will be reduced further, with careful consideration, we can build carbon neutral.



Design is important, and based on our experience, collaboration between the designer and builder is vital to the success of a project. Excellent communication is the key, and an eye for detail will ensure a successful project and a budget which is on track.


We can complete all areas of design either in house or with one of our chosen designers or architects. Then take through to full council approval and onto the building permit issue.


We would be delighted to include as many eco and environmentally friendly design ideas as you are happy to have. Lets try and future proof from the beginning. Most importantly is that you have a comfortable home in both Winter and Summer with a constant even temperature, along with filtered fresh air.



Building with conventional double cavity brick, reverse brick veneer, timber frame, structural insulated panels or insulated concrete formwork. Single or double glazed windows and doors, insulated to maintain an indoor temperature whether it’s in the middle of winter or the height of a Perth summer. With careful consideration and use of products/materials, we can almost eliminate regular maintenance, saving you time and money as the years roll by. We can offer a design and build or we can build from your own plans, with the option of complete turn key or to lock up, for you to complete the remaining items.



We can be your 'go-to' builder for all renovation projects:

    •    Boundary walls 

    •    Kitchens

    •    Bathrooms

    •    Laundry 

    •    Home Office

    •    Carports and Garages

    •    Outdoor Alfresco Areas 

    •    Single or Double story extensions

    •    Re-configuring of existing home for multi living


Complete full house renovations which allow you to stay in the same house by completely updating and renovating your existing home, to give you the space you need as your lifestyle and financial constraints change, saving you the upheaval and costs involved with moving.  


Imagine… friends and family still nearby, kids in the same school, keep it simple.
