Back in 2002 when Nic & Wes Builders first began, the concept of design & build in Singapore was highly foreign. A concept whereby there is one main point of contact that handholds homeowners throughout the entire home-build process from pre-construction phase right up to the handover. A process that simplifies it for the client from managing various points of contact ranging from the contractor, architect, engineer, plumbing, electrical, interior designers etc. And in our case, we take on the role of builder and overall project manager to ensure as smooth a build as possible for our clients.
We are the guide that Brian and Jude Kow, founders of Nic & Wes Builders, wished they had when they embarked on their home build journeys in the past. It was through sheer experience of having to micro-manage their own projects did they understand the intricacies and pitfalls of the process. They believed that there should be a better way. Their shared interest of seeing their visions come to life in their homes gave them a unified purpose to guide fellow homeowners through their own home-build journeys as well in the form of Nic & Wes Builders.
