Quantity Surveying that offers NO Surprises

Hi, I’m Hai Nguyen, founder of Newin Building Estimating Services, and that’s what I’ll help you do – cost and manage your building projects to ultimately ensure your project gets completed to budget and without any cost surprises.

We are a local property and construction advisory firm specialising in Quantity Surveying and Cost Management services. We work with domestic, commercial, and industrial builders, home-owners, architects, and developers at various phases: prior to construction, during construction, and post-construction.

Our why?

Over the years we’ve seen clients get caught out with poor project tracking systems, inaccurate costings, or simply “paying too much”, sadly leaving many financially strained.

We have a proven risk management system and industry track record for addressing all these.

The result- is greater confidence that your project will be delivered on time and within budget.

With offices across Sydney, Melbourne, as well as Auckland, New Zealand, and powered by 18 year’s + experience in the construction industry, and over 7000 reports behind us, we’d love to share how we can help with your building project whether it’s a renovation, new home build, commercial or even a high-rise residential project.

Sydney Home Extension Tips

Ask yourself – Do I need that $20,000 granite kitchen benchtop or will the $7,000 one still give my kitchen that new edgy look?

Aesthetics are certainly important, but functionality (and budget) should come first.

Minor additions like a new cabinet for extra space or a wider benchtop can enhance the functionality of your space without punching a hole in your pocket.

Make sure you have a detailed list of all the contracts needed to complete the project, and the key contacts, and know how to organise them all, so everyone turns up at the right time to do what needs to be done.
