Emily from Alphington – Melbourne came to us after being frustrated with other building companies. We visited her site and came up with a reading room backyard pod solution for her backyard. We did a sketch to show the potential building type and a render to show how it may look. Emily and her husband were considering to sell and move to a larger home, but looking at the economics it was a far greater solution to create a new space in the backyard.

Entrepreneurs these days are always looking for a better method to grow the income stream with less outlay. At Bribuild we understand this as a requirement due to our own investment property portfolio.

In Australia one of the biggest expenses when building investment properties such as town houses or dual occupancy units is the cost of labour.

Traditional builds are becoming so expensive due to the amount of time trades are required onsite.

BRIbuild set out to setup our current steel frame and panel method to work with a multipurpose developments such as townhouses or holiday units.

Again if we utilise the low cost labour of our offshore business and semi complete walls floors and roof structures, it means less time for trades to be onsite.

Another huge saving as any property developer knows, NO Cranes required!. Our steel frames and panels rarely exceed 300kg, which means a truck crane can lift components directly from the truck into place. A 2 man install team can lock 10 sections into place within 3 hours. Lockup in a couple of days.

Optimising build times allows BRIbuild to tender for larger projects such as over 55 villages, Holiday parks and residential town house developments.

If you have a multi dwelling development and are looking for an affordable solution and a quick build time consider Bribuild.

All components and materials are tested and certified to meet Australian New zealand standards. Engineering and energy reports are supplied with all our builds. Documents are site specific.

Melbourne Granny Flat builders

Building a Granny flat or DPU (Dependent persons unit) is not as easy as it sounds. Unlike other states in Australia Victoria has strict rules when it comes to Granny flats.

Melbourne and wider Victoria council rules state that a granny flat can be installed as a DPU as long as the people living in the granny flat are family members who are dependent on the family members living in the existing dwelling.


Should the dependent person no longer live in the granny flat. Council will require removal from the property.

Yes we know this is a ridiculous rule and many within the industry would like to see it changed to match the New South Wales rules where a granny flat can also be used as a rental income.

Don’t despair, if you are wanting to install a granny flat in Melbourne, you have found the appropriate company to help with building permits that will allow you to install your granny flat as an extension.

No building permit required!

We call it the “Home Extension” our smallest buildings with the largest interest. Before tiny houses there was the bungalow movement. The portable building that fixed the accommodation problem for the teenager that needs privacy or easiest path to caring for older family members.

At Bribuild we knew there would be people in our community that just need that extra room.

So we designed the DIY flat pack building that could be used in so many situations.

Making it your own. The man cave, the craft room, the music room….

The best part of the instant “home extension” is in most states and territories in Australia, you DO NOT require council* passion to assemble in your back yard.

No building permit required!
