Where Home Modification works will cost over $30,000, the NDIS requires you to engage an independent NDIS-registered building works project manager for complex home modifications.


When engaged Andrew can work with you and your Occupational Therapist on the design, approvals, documentation, costing, and appointment of builders and can engage suppliers in consultation with you.

Andrew has a strong track record of quality project delivery for clients throughout Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, the Hunter and the Central Coast.


Andrew collaborates and builds healthy relationships with clients, occupational therapists, and tradespeople to achieve the project goals.
