Why Use B&S Nelson
Building Services
experience and knowledge

We have been in the renovation business in the Forster Tuncurry Great Lakes area for over 30 years.

We love working with you to understand your needs and ideas, and creating a home that brings you and your loved ones pure enjoyment. We build great relationships with our clients. It is not uncommon for clients to return again and again to work with us, which is something that we are forever grateful for.

The sites we have worked on range from the flat, coastal and sandy surfaces to the rugged slopes that pose very specific challenges. We are used to building near the beach and the special requirements that harsh and salty conditions entail.

We have made dreams come true for many Forster Tuncurry locals, and have a proud reputation for quality and on-time performance.

about us
Knowledge of Your Area

Since we started our business, we have concentrated on the region in which we live, in which you live.

We belong to the community of Forster, Tuncurry, Pacific Palms, Failford, Hallidays Point and Diamond Beach.

We know the area, we know the people and we understand the lifestyle that people seek in this beautiful part of the world. Whether you call it the Great Lakes, the Manning Valley or the Barrington Coast, it is a unique part of paradise and we will build the home or renovation that fits with this area and your lifestyle.

Accountability for the Build

Living in the community where we work means that we have to face our clients in the street for years after the build.

This builds a special type of accountability as reputation in a smaller area spreads fast.

We have been doing business here for over 30 years. A large portion of our business comes from referrals and the kinds words and positive experience of our past clients.

We will love meeting you years after the build and hearing how much we have made your dreams come true!

How We Work With You

Call the Forster Tuncurry Renovation Specialists


Tell us about your plans and ideas for your property or home, and we can give you an idea about feasibility and the process with which we manage your project.

The first step of our process is to book in our Start Smart Consultation. This is a dedicated period of time for Steve, our Head Builder, to discuss your ideas in detail, give advice and knowledge, and impart realistic costs and timeframes so there are no hidden surprises down the track.

We recommend engaging in our Start Smart Consultant prior to having any architectural plans drawn up to ensure that you start your building or renovating journey fully aware of the costs involved.


Steve will then visit your site on which you wish to build or renovate and conduct the Start Smart Consultation in person. We require that all decision makers are present so nothing is missed.

A checklist will be used to make sure we cover everything. We find that this successful approach ensures that your building or renovation experience is as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.


You may already have your own plans or you may need help to create plans. With our extensive experience and knowledge we can help you in this area.

We have architects and draftsmen with whom we work closely. Through these people we can create initial concept and then the final plans.

Submitting plans to council can be an arduous task, we are here to help you through this process too. We often use Coastplan or Accuplan to help facilitate this process.


Once you have final plans we will then work to prepare a comprehensive building quote with our quantity surveyor.

The quote will clearly outline the inclusions and exclusions giving you a clear understanding of what the build will cost. A comprehensive quote will make the building process smooth and successful.

We offer both fixed price and cost plus contracts, we are happy to use either option. We will discuss the benefits of using both and determine which will suit you.


Once we have the final plans it is time to sign the contract for your building project.

Steve chooses to use HIA contracts. HIA contracts are clear and simple to understand.

When signing the contract you will have a Home Owners Warranty Insurance policy provided by icare hbcf which covers you for a 7 year structural warranty.

At this stage you will likely meet some of our team who will be helping us to create your dream renovation.

Construction begins

Steve, along with our head foreman, will run the project. One of them will be easily contactable.

Communication throughout the building process is critical, our aim is to make this whole building project as easy and painless as possible for you.

Steve will be responsible for the budget, contractors, materials and inspections by both engineers and councils.

This is the time that you can sit back and watch the magic unfold as a professional and experienced building company turns your ideas into reality.

B&S Nelson in
The Community

At B&S Nelson we are heavily involved in the Forster Tuncurry community. We believe it is just as important to give back to the locals who have supported us throughout our journey.

A cause that we are extremely passionate about is providing young people with opportunities to learn how to swim, play a sport, learn an instrument or develop coordination and confidence. When our son past away suddenly at the age of 10 from Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, we created the Samuel Brett Nelson Kickstart Foundation, otherwise known as Kickstart for Sam, in this honour. Since it was established in 2017, we have been able to provide so many local kids with opportunities that they may have missed out on otherwise. 

We love the work Kickstart For Sam is doing and we are so grateful for everyone who has supported the charity so far. 

Alongside running the charity, we have shown support in other areas as well. 

One of these examples is our support of the Forster Girls Netball Team.

We also have contributed to a range of other initiative in the area such as the Matt Nixon Memorial Police Charity Golf Day, the Forster Keys Evermore Family Fun Day and the Forster Tuncurry Jockey Club.
