Professional small builder/renovator
Melbourne is home to a diverse array of different housing styles. For example, the city contains many notable examples of Victorian architecture. Heritage overlays are put in place by local councils to either protect individual buildings, or occasionally entire streets. The criteria used by the council to decide what warrants heritage protection varies but the protection usually is a result of reports commissioned by councils from time to time.
When it comes to heritage extensions, Melbourne homeowners need to proceed with caution. However, our team at Supa Group has the skill and experience to carry create a design that complies with the heritage overlay while delivering the changes you want, while still protecting the historical charm and characteristics of the house.
Working collaboratively with you, our team can design and deliver a home renovation that suits your needs. And we can do that while staying within the laws of heritage protection.
When it comes to heritage protections, it's not always the buildings you think - there are instances where former housing commission homes are offered protection through a heritage overlay.
This is, overall, a chance to preserve the unique character of Melbourne's streetscapes. By balancing the old and the new, we can create new architectural opportunities for families looking to grow.
Work with a design consultant to discuss your perfect home today.
Undertaking a renovation of a heritage home requires some careful consideration. Here’s what to think about if you own a heritage listed home.
Does your existing house have enough in the way of living spaces and bedrooms?
Will my existing home stand the test of time in its current state of repair?
Do I want to balance the original style of the home with more modern inclusions?
Our building supervisor Braidon Marshall was absolutely fantastic. He was friendly, approachable and accessible when we had a few issues out of hours. We sprung a leak on one rather rainy night, and he came to the rescue after his birthday dinner no less!
Thank you so much for the spectacular job you have done. We are very happy with the outcome and it was an absolute pleasure working with all of you. We appreciate the expertise, honesty and care we received throughout the renovation.
Despite all the stories you hear about how difficult building can be it was a fairly painless process thanks to the professionalism of the Supa Group team and the quality of their people. We even lived in the house throughout the process.
Very happy with our recent renovation with Supa Group. Just like another reviewer, we wasted time and money trying to go through an architect. Supa Group’s design was far superior and more cost-effective.
We were particularly impressed by the job’s completion on time, despite some weather delays.
Thank you for the wonderful extension that Supa Group added to our home. We now have a great indoor/outdoor open plan living space that our family loves spending time together in.
I thoroughly recommend Supa Group as their customer-first policy and workmanship has been of the highest quality.

At Supa Group, our team has experience in working with city councils all over the greater Melbourne area. We can find out what's possible at your property and work through the heritage process to get work started.
Unfortunately in some instances, it is not possible to make the changes desired. This is typically in the instance of double-storey extensions that are visible from the street at a given point.
The answer is probably yes. We do whatever we can to facilitate families being able to continue living in their homes while we carry out work. If it is necessary for you to move out, we'll minimise that stretch of time, and work around your schedule as much as possible.
Every home extension is different, and a number of varying factors can impact the cost. Just because it's a heritage home doesn't necessarily mean that it costs more. But if there are additional detailing and finishes involved, then the materials and labour required may be more expensive.
However, we'll always consult with you about prices, and work towards delivering the most affordable work we can. Before you commit to the job, you'll receive a quote from our team along with specifications so you know how much your project will cost.
