CMR Constructions are one of the leading knock down & rebuild specialists on the Gold Coast

CMR Constructions are knock down rebuild specialists who are here to help you knock down & rebuild your dream home in your dream location on the Gold Coast!

Sometimes the quickest way to get exactly the home you want is to start from scratch. At CMR Constructions, we assist clients in creating a home that suits them perfectly.

When families love their neighbourhood but live in a home that is failing to meet the demands of the modern world, a knock down and rebuild option starts to look good. Our knock down and rebuild specialists will help you achieve your dream home on the Gold Coast.

Are you ready for a clean slate on your property?

When we suggest doing a knock down and rebuild on a home, it allows a family to stay put and start again with a home that meets their every need.

Is knock down and rebuilding or remodelling right for your situation?

This strictly comes down to what the client wants in their space and the budget they are working with. If your budget does not extend to a complete rebuild, remodelling may be the answer.

However, if you want a better solution, a knock down and rebuild may just be the building option for you.

Let us bring your rebuild to life through creative and conscious design.

Before we can even begin demolition, we need to go through the beginning stages of a knock down and rebuild, which includes the local council permit process.

Included in our fixed price design and build, we help you complete and submit your application to the local council. Your entire project timetable relies heavily on obtaining the necessary local council demolition and building permits. In fact, it can take anywhere from 30-100+ days to get permission from the local council.

Once we have all the appropriate permits, the demolition and rebuild can take anywhere from 8-12 months for completion, dependent on the size, complexity, weather and site issues.

We are your demolition, design, and build team—all in one! CMR Gold Coast prestige home builders is a one-stop-shop for everything you need in home building, remodelling, and more. Anything home related is a big project but consider the pros and cons when you are getting ready to think about renovating your space. Deciding to do a knock down and rebuild comes with many advantages that our clients love, such as:
  • Control of the project from conception through completion; there is no need to accommodate previous design features.
  • Your Gold Coast prestige home builder knows every detail of the design process and is not held accountable for a previous builder’s workmanship.
  • The budget is easier to manage with the homeowner in charge of every element.
  • The scope of the project may make a rebuild quicker than a remodel.
Additionally, we help clients save time and money on buying and selling because we can work on their property and give them a contemporary home they love. They can stay where they are and start again.

Next, our knock down rebuild builders take your design plans and turn them into reality.

Our 30+ years of experience in building prestige developments has given CMR an edge over the competition. Our knock down rebuild builders can take your design and turn it into your dream Gold Coast home.

You’ll get what you want in your home with no details spared! Keep up to date on your knock down and rebuild by staying in touch with your project manager throughout the entire build. It may be a big project, but with the correct procedures and schedule in place, CMR will complete it with minimal stress to you and your family.


Obviously, every knock down is different but you should allow $25,000 to $30,000 in your budget for the demolition costs of the existing house on the property. You may also have to consider safety factors such as the presence of asbestos in the original home. 

Our luxury knock down and rebuild projects on the Gold Coast can typically range anywhere from $1.5million to $3million.

Here at CMR, we pride ourselves on being knock down rebuild specialists and are able to give you a really good idea of your project’s budget, before you’ve even signed on the dotted line.

If you don’t know what kind of tapware or appliances you want yet, or you haven’t decided what kind of landscaping you need, don’t worry! We sit down with you when it is convenient for you and spend as much time as you need, getting all of your ideas down on paper to help form the plans.

Using our extensive specialist knowledge we are then able to give you a precise allowance on each outstanding aspect of your home that is yet to be decided. 

This is woven into your complete project quote and gives you the ability to accurately budget and shop for those finishing touches while the build is happening.

A typical knock down or demolition of an existing dwelling on a property takes about a week. 

The rebuild portion of these projects is treated the same as a new build of a luxury home which can take anywhere from 8 months to 18 months depending on the complexity of design, the size of the house and the ease of the weather and job site.

Not only can it work out cheaper to tear down and rebuild your home but it is so much easier and less stressful on you and your family too. 

Trying to bring the footings of an existing house into modern standards is extremely labour intensive and often it can be quicker and cheaper to simply knock down and rebuild from scratch. 

Starting with a completely clean slate allows you to rebuild a house that is of modern standards and extremely structurally sound. You do not have to work around any current designs, footings or layouts of the existing house and can truly build your dream home.

Typically with renovations, we see families trying to still live in the home while it is being renovated which can lead to stress and discomfort for all those involved! 

Knocking down and rebuilding your home is more efficient and can be far less time consuming minimising the disruption to your life.

As specialist knock down builders, we are in charge of every element in the rebuild of your luxury home meaning you are far less likely to run into unexpected costs that can arise from trying to accommodate the original design and structure of your home.

Our biggest piece of advice when knocking down and rebuilding is make sure you get good advice from a specialist knock down rebuild builder and ask them the right questions! 

If you are thinking about tearing down and rebuilding your Gold Coast home, we spend days, if not months with you, going through all your options and discussing plans and budget to make sure you are getting the best outcome. 

We can also come visit a site with you that you are thinking of purchasing to give you an evaluation of the property, an idea of what you could achieve with the section and what the estimated cost of the project would be.  

We do all of this planning with you before you have even signed a contract and don’t charge a cent because we believe in giving quality to our potential clients and treat every build as if it is our own house. We are perfectionists and we want to show that to all our prospective clients.
