Imagine a builder who takes a fierce and professional pride in everything he does from hammering in a nail to building a perfect lift shaft, but then try to imagine the same builder who has as much pride zealously guarding his clients budget every inch of the way, with regularly written progress updates so you know exactly how much you’ve spent. And add all that to a builder who never seems to get flustered, who’s always promptly on time and who’s respected by both his employees and contractors, well you don’t need to imagine such a person anymore, Chris Ball from CBD Building is that builder.


We have no hesitation in recommending Chris Ball/ Director and his team-together, they offered precision, efficiency and dedication throughout our entire construction process. Despite the intricacy of the build, Chris delivered on -budget and on-time, which is testament to his attention to detail, diligence, reliability and expertise.

Chris personally ensured that the entire process was streamlined, producing a sensational and bespoke finish, which is why we have employed his services on multiple occasions. He foresaw and strategically avoided any potential complications with the site with his often novel approach, using the latest techniques in building innovation.

We are overjoyed at the result of our build and proud to be part of his expanding portfolio.

We found Chris and the entire team from CBD Building to be extremely professional, efficient and precise. From the outset, Chris listened to us and our ideas and offered his expert advice which was an enormous help in reaching our end product. Their workmanship and vision greatly assisted us in our decision making for our renovation and we were ecstatic with the results. They were always very punctual, tidy and open and upfront about the timeframes and costs of every aspect of the job which was very refreshing. Their management of the job from start to finish was first class and I would happily (and already have) recommend to anyone looking to do renovation work to their home.

Mies Van der Rohe, the German Architect once said, “The devil is in the detail ” Chris Ball must have been listening, because that’s where he shines. We have been working with CBD for about eighteen months on various projects finishing the details of our Clovelly house.

CBD could possibly be more expensive than some, however you sometimes need to pay a bit more for quality work. For us it has been worth every dollar. His attention to the details is superb and his constant work ethic is always above and beyond the call of duty. This is because he cares about the work and cares about his clients.
You could not ask for a more open, up front relationship with your builder. He has our highest recommendation.

Finding a builder that is brilliant at his trade, reliable, turns up when he says he will, completes the project big or small on time and within the budget approved is no mean feat. Add clean, tidy, trust worthy and a pleasure to have around you hit the jackpot. Referred to by a good friend Chris Ball and his team tick all those boxes and more. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris, its something I do whenever a friend or work colleague ask if I know a builder.

“When we engaged CBD Building we had just fired a supposedly reputable building company for poor workmanship and overcharging. Our project was so far over budget we were wondering if we were even going to be able to finish the (significant) renovation we had undertaken. Enter Christopher and the CBD team. CBD Building not only got our project back on track and delivered us a spectacular home, they were able to work to our very specific budget without sacrificing the quality of workmanship or finishes. Christopher and his team are everything we were looking for in a builder. They are technically competent with an eye for detail, hardworking and honest. We recommend them without hesitation.”

We were wanting to add an elevator to our existing 3 storey residence in Mosman. After choosing the lift shop as our supplier of a new Elfolift our next challenge was to find a builder to excavate the sandstone below the house, cut through 2 existing concrete floors and construct a new masonry shaft for the lift to operate within. This is when we first meet Chris Ball from CBD Building. From the outset Chris was knowledgeable, honest and realistic about all aspects of the project. Chris started on time, finished on time and on budget and has been a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process. All the tradesman who worked for CBD Building were courteous, professional and took great pride in their workmanship. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Chris Ball and CBD Building to any prospective customer.
