specialising in quality projects delivered with integrity

John Van Building Services is a family owned building company based in Thirroul NSW, specialising in the construction of high quality residential building works.

We work closely with clients and architects, and pride ourselves on delivering projects to the required quality within the agreed timeframe. A key attribute in achieving this is our good communication skills.

We believe that open communication makes the building process an enjoyable one for all parties, and results in a superior finished product.

With over 18 years experience in the building industry, John Van Building Services has built an excellent reputation as being a high quality building company in the Northern Illawarra region. We have established a team of highly skilled sub-contractors from the area, and have a good working rapport with them.

We have extensive experience working on older style houses and heritage projects, and have an appreciation and respect for the building methods, materials and details of these houses. We are also experienced in building more contemporary extensions and new houses.

We enjoy the process of working on ‘bespoke’ projects with clients and architects to fulfil their vision.
