We provide an experienced project administration team both offsite and onsite for each individual project.

We use up-to-date administration and best practice systems utilizing the latest technology. This allows for excellent communication between architects, consultants and clients, allowing us to achieve successful project outcomes.

Cost control and reporting from project inception to completion is one of these systems used to benefit our architects and clients to assist them in making design and product selection decisions whilst maintaining budget control and design intent.

Building each home
as if it were
their own.

The company’s principal and general managing director Stephen Upton has 41 years’ experience in the building industry.

A licensed builder since 1987, Stephen won his first award in 1993 (HIA Top Home of the Year). His career started as an apprentice carpenter /joiner in Sydney before relocating to FNQ and then starting his own business in his early twenties in the Cairns & Port Douglas area.

After 10 successful years gaining all types of building experience in both commercial, multi-residential and single domestic construction, he relocated back home to Sydney in 1997 to continue his career in the local building industry.
PHD Building has now been successfully building in the Sydney Metropolitan area for 20 years.

Steve likes to approach each individual building project from a common-sense, logical standpoint and builds each home as if it were his own.

His staff and contractors are of the same ilk – building each home as if it were their own.

Design.

Style.
