I readily recommend Rob and the Trend team when people or clients ask for a first class builder.

PM Solicitor

Trend have built both of our large family homes, in Mosman and Palm Beach. Each project had many challenges and complexities that we would have struggled with if we did not have Rob to guide us and provide technical and practical solutions.
Trend have been very conscious of timelines and budgets and have always exceeded our expectations in this respect.
The results are outstanding and we would look no further for a builder on future projects.


Rob and Trend Living have a reputation for creating profitable development projects and unlocking value in real estate for owner/occupiers and property investor’s across Sydney. Trend are always prepared to co invest and share the development risks and rewards, forging a true partnership and a win win outcome for all involved in their projects.


Sustainable Building and Development

Green Building Principles

The people behind the Trend Group are firmly committed to environmental and sustainable development. We encourage our clients to investigate the green alternatives available when planning their new home or major renovation. The ever evolving range of construction materials and resources add many benefits to your project including

– Greater lifecycle of materials with reduced maintenance requirements;
– Reduced impact of allergens and toxins in the home improving indoor environment quality;
– Greater water and energy efficiency;
– Reduced waste emissions and carbon footprint.

In many cases this will also result in ongoing cost savings to the homeowner.

Trend are always happy to assist in your planning and design and answer any queries relating to sustainable development. Whether you are a client, potential purchaser, consultant or contractor our aim is to build a network of relationships which result in a competitive level of service and superior delivery.
