On average 9 out of 10 builds will exceed their budget. And if that wasn’t enough, there is a shortage of tradespeople in Australia. In 2022 there were 100,000 unfilled roles in construction. This is making it very hard for home owners to source builders and other tradies for their construction project.
In addition, managing a home build is like having a full-time job. Very few people realise the time commitment and the emotional impact of the stress. That’s why Baja Projects is here to help.
We are a team of experienced building project managers that help home owners build their dream home by managing the end-to-end process for them. We know how to manage builders and their trades to ensure everyone understands your expectations. Our focus is quality tradesmanship, keeping the project on track and minimising cost creep. We troubleshoot problems and help you make informed decisions. See how we’ve helped other Sydney homeowners bring their vision to life.

Design and Working With Your Architect
We are happy to work closely with your architect. If you already have architectural plans, we can evaluate whether they will fit your budget. Or assist you in selecting an architect who can transform your ideas into building plans.
Construction Approvals and Certificates
Preparing council approvals and development applications are complex and time consuming. We will take care of everything for you throughout your build, including private certifier certificates.
Even the best planned building projects have bumps along the way. We’ll help you explore cost effective options and vigorously assess any cost or specification variations to help keep your project on-track.
Budgeting and Costing
Budget overruns can be the most stressful part of any build. As your project managers, we will prepare, evaluate and run your quoting process to help keep your budget under control.
This is often the most time consuming aspect of building a new home or undertaking a major renovation. We will monitor and quality control the build, manage scheduling and programming as well as evaluate your builder’s progress claims.

No-one will want to talk to you about this but the stark reality is the construction game is risky. From time to time, builders go bust. So what do you do if it happens to you? We sincerely hope this doesn’t happen to you but experienced project managers like us can see the symptoms before…
Good tradespeople are busy so arranging a time for them to quote will be challenging. Many will have so many jobs booked into the future, they won’t be available to quote. Then there is your availability. Are you able to take time off work to obtain those quotes? Even if you have great tradespeople selected…
Being an owner-builder is not a short-term gig. The lead-up prior to construction could be 12-18 months or more, for the design, plans, approvals and finalised quotes. Once building begins, you’ll experience a steep learning curve as you manage the project and deal with each trade. It’s this lack of knowledge that leaves so many…
