At Modo we do things differently

Modo Project Builders is a design and construct building firm based in Melbourne.

As a small boutique building and design team, we have a keen interest in creating very special living spaces. We hold both unlimited domestic and commercial builder registrations and have been building for over 30 years.

Whether you’re planning a multi-unit or townhouse development or building your investment property, a new home or simply a unit in your backyard, Modo will be there for you.

Our goal is to make your experience both enjoyable and rewarding without the stress and drama you hear about. Building can be enjoyable but only with proper planning.

We work together with you from concept to completion and invite your personal input and ideas. You never know, they might just become our next best design.

We can build to your existing plans and specifications if you want to, create a totally new design or adapt one of our designs to fit both your site and your budget… and yes, we’ll even build to lock-up stage only if that’s what you want.

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


Shared Living / Rooming House Investment Properties

Shared living is something we’re really excited about. Multiple rental incomes from a single dwelling means investors can positively gear and receive a significant income stream from their investment.

New Home Builds

Building a new home is a wonderful opportunity for you to express who you are. Work with us on your new home build and you get something designed just for you. We don't do 'out of the box' mass designs.

Owner participation projects

We don't believe that you should 'settle for less' when it comes to building your dream home, so we've developed a way that can give you the home you want and the quality you deserve, at the price you want to pay.

About Us

Investment into good residential property is one of the fastest growing asset classes for building real wealth. Smart investing is even better.

Smart property investing requires well-designed and well-constructed property, correctly located for its target market, managed well and (this is incredibly important) purchased at the right price.

Working direct with Modo means you’re the developer, effectively buying your property at cost rather than at retail prices.

You can be comfortable you’re paying the right price and not something loaded up by a property marketer at your expense.

Whether you’re building to sell or to hold, paying a developer’s (lower) price massively increases your return on investment.

Working with Modo means you build more wealth with just one project. Then again, you might just want more than one.

We’re only a phone call away.

We love good design. In fact, we're drawing new things all the time
Here’s some of our recent projects. We are also collecting a scrapbook of building design ideas - check out our pinterest board.

Shared Housing / Crisis Accommodation

The Dune

Designed to suit a narrower block, the Dune looks equally at home in a suburban streetscape or nestled into the sands, looking out to sea.

The Driftwood

With a design based on classic cubist design principles, the Driftwood makes an immediate good first impression … and that’s just the beginning!

We have developed a short presentation slideshow to explain the concept of Shared Housing / Crisis Accommodation and how Modo can help with this type of development.

From Our Blog

Welcome to the new Modo website

Neil Dornbusch - Wednesday, November 12, 2014
We’re pleased to launch Modo’s new website to interested property investors and owners. We’ve been working with private clients for several years now, with most of our work coming from repeat business. We put this down to our focus on delivering them ‘Good Property’, that is, the best possible build at the best possible price.
