We love Building. It is both art & science. Plus it’s the ultimate team sport.

J2 Build was founded 15 years ago. It’s first chapters were written in the tight streets of Sydney’s eastern suburbs and inner west. The company quickly built a reputation for delivering architecturally ambitious and environmentally responsible renovations. They took great pleasure doing repeat work for some of the cities most exciting architects and their inspired clients.

After weathering the GFC, completing an epic award-winning new-build, celebrating the birth of Jacques’ third child and completing his own experimental build in Alexandria, Jacques was looking for a change. The South Coast with its mix of beaches, rolling hills and untouched bush had always been the favourite holiday escape. With family in the area, and the discovery of their perfect tree-change project in Berry – Jacques and his partner Kate traded CBD success for a more sustainable lifestyle for them and their kids. They have called the region home ever since.

Our philosophy

We exist to create beautiful homes that set a good example and stand the test of time.

Our culture is built on a strong foundation of trust between builder, client, engineer and architect. We are transparent around finances. We respect the scale of investment being made. The clients, architects, suppliers, bank manager, neighbours and mother-in-laws we have worked alongside are all happy to vouch for our attention to detail, up to date knowledge, genuine commitment to sustainability, contemporary outlook, energy and good humour.

We think we are the good guys. We know people like working with us.

j2 build south coast team

Jacques has built a skilled, loyal and light-hearted team who are committed to J2’s values & culture.

Building can get pretty up close and personal. J2 understands that when you are waving hello at 7am, you better be very comfortable with who is onsite. His polite, tidy team are as proud of the work they do, as the relationships they develop over the course of the build. You will love getting to know them. These days the core team consists of 7 carpenters and apprentices who have all worked for the company for more than 2 years. J2 proudly develops apprentices and invests in continuing education for staff.

The last part of the picture is the network of preferred subcontractors that J2 has trialled and tested over the last 9 years. These longstanding partnerships are an additional strategic advantage of J2’s. Their enthusiasm to work with J2 ensures that the best of the South Coasts skilled sub-contractors are willing and able to prioritise your job.
