This was a classic RENOVA retrofit job. Our clients had just gone sale agreed on this house when they contacted us. They knew that it needed a complete renovation and their priority was to ensure that the building fabric and services were upgraded as a priority.

Design & Planning

There was an initial consultation at the RENOVA showroom, followed by a site visit and an initial costed proposal. Adjustments were made to the initial proposal until a final plan for the house was agreed upon. Soon after the sale closed, a contract was signed and selection of materials commenced.


Works commenced with the installation of a new insulated ground floor slab and screed and replacement of the perished flat roofs. Triple glazed windows and doors were next, followed by insulation to the external walls and roof. Air tightness, heating, plumbing, ventilation and a stove completed the retrofit works.

The house received a complete cosmetic fit out to finish. This included bathrooms, kitchen, internal doors, flooring and decoration. All materials were selected to suit the clients’ taste but with the help of our interior designer Penny.

Finished house

Our clients now have the home that they wanted. The house is a comfortable home, it performs well and it is finished to their taste.
