About Us

At MODO we do things differently

“Whether you’re planning to build a multi-unit or townhouse development or building your investment property, a new home or a simple unit in your backyard, Modo will be there for you”

As a small boutique building and design team, we always look to innovate and create very special spaces. We are conscious about the environment in which we build. We not only try to develop buildings that look great with a modern contemporary street appeal, that have living areas that are very functional, but importantly properties that our owners will be proud to own and in which their tenants will be comfortable and happy to live.

At Modo we take the time to listen, we work with you from concept to completion and invite your personal input and ideas. You never know, they just might become our next great design.

Our goal is to make your experience both enjoyable and rewarding without the stress and drama you often hear about.

We can either work with your plans and specifications or we can start from scratch and create a totally new design specifically to suit your site and most importantly your budget… and yes, we’ll even build to lock-up stage only if that is what you want.

When you engage the Modo team we will carefully assess your site for project suitability, review it’s dimensions, slope, site access, orientation, neighbouring buildings and we always try to come up with a design that is cost effective.
