"Built on Ideas" is much more than a slogan to us. It's the way we do business every day. It's the ability to ask the right questions: to analyse the design of a building and develop creative technical solutions that allow us to build better.
Servicing all areas of Sydney and specialising in all types of construction – both residential and commercial, R and M Builders has the experience and know how to complete the job on time, on budget and to the highest standards.

Our highly involved management team, years of experience, financial strength and well nurtured relationships with subcontractors allows R and M Builders to provide outstanding service to our clients.

R and M Builders take a uniquely innovative and efficient approach to every construction project it leads, and has proudly done so since its inception in May 2004. Rodney and Mandy Clarke founded the company and actively participated in every project. They have focused on building a strong team to direct the growing company into the future.

We believe that three key factors contribute to the success of every project;

• Our directors take an active role in every project - providing cost-effective solutions during the preconstruction period and appropriate leadership during the construction phase.

• As hands-on builders, we have the technical expertise needed to design smart, cost-effective building solutions. We utilise the skills of the talented people in our design build and make smart suggestions that can provide the key to a successful project.

• Our commitment to maintain honest and open communications with the client, architect, engineer, and other members of the team means that everyone is working toward the same goals, creating a productive and efficient environment.


"Clever people create clever solutions." Every construction project reflects the spirit and the talent of the people who built it. Clever, motivated, creative people who love the challenges of building - typically “industry best” are the type of people we look to engage as part of our team. We look for those who want to be the best in their field and take pride in the work they do with a commitment to on-going training allows them to further enhance their skills.

The major key to our success is the quality of the people on our team - from our on- site supervisors and carpenters to our long standing sub contractors – they all make it possible for us to live up to the promise of our motto.

We're hands-on builders, with experience on many challenging projects and intelligent technical skills. We bring this understated value to every project, distinguishing us from our competitors.

"I am delighted to provide a referral for Rod Clarke, R+M Builders. We first got to meet Rod in 2000 through our Architect. Rod bid competitively for renovations to our terrace in Newtown. I am glad to say that he was successful in his bid. Rod and his team did an excellent job, which made us seek him again for our major building project last year. This time it was a demolition of an old terrace in Alexandria and rebuilding a 3-storey terrace from scratch. We are again extremely happy with the results. Rod and his team have many strengths including: • The team is excellent in its work doing quality building works with attention to detail • Rod and his team are very easy to deal and work with, making stressful situations easy. • The subcontractors used by Rod also have high quality standards and are expertly managed by Rod leaving the client with one point of contact • Rod is a very good project manager keeping the project within budget and time. He is quick to bring to our attention any variations so we can then decide on the next course of action • Rod and his team bring a wealth of experience of their trade to the party giving good advice as required • The team is very good in building relationships with their clients and other parties (council, neighbours, etc). We are very happy with the results and have no hesitation in recommending Rod to prospective clients. You are welcome to call me if you require and further information "

"Our site was a difficult one due to the amount of sand that had to be removed and the fact that the ground also had to be stabilised before construction could commence. You undertook the job with competence and professionalism and you also dealt with our many questions with great patience. The placement of the concrete piers was our main concern as they had to virtually hold our house up, but the work was carried out without stress or technical hitches. Most importantly for us being inexperienced renovators you and your workers arrived when you said you would and the job was completed on time. This is most unusual in the building industry in Sydney.

"Rod's dedication to his craft and his easy going nature has proved invaluable in the eyes of this firm and clients. In an industry that is sometimes volatile and unpredictable, Rod's reliability and honesty coupled with a commitment to quality has never diminished. For this reason R and M Builders are our preferred contractors, recommended with certainty by this office to its clients. We are happy to fully endorse any future venture that Rod Clarke and his wife Mandy may choose to undertake in the future. "

"In 2006 I went to select tender to develop a new three storey terrace house in Woollahra. My Structural Engineer recommended I invite R and M builders to tender. Their tender price was very competitive and they won the project. I developed a very successful working relationship with Rod, Mandy and their team right from the beginning. They are professional, friendly, helpful, honest and full of good ideas. They also developed a very good relationship with the Council who were the PCA and the neighbour’s. My family was very happy with the final result and the high quality of the finishes. The project came in on time and to budget. In September, 2010 I commenced a major refurbishment of a large eight bedroom, five bathroom residences in Bellevue Hill. I went straight to R and M builders to develop this property for us since I was so happy with the outcome of our first project together. This job is a cost plus contract and Rod and his team are making innovative suggestions to improve the design and save us money. Their attention to detail is excellent and they take great pride in their workmanship. They have a wonderful passion for building the best that they can and the mood on site is very positive. I have no doubt that this project will go as well as our first project together. I highly recommend R and M builders and I am already planning to use them again in a refurbishment and extension to a residence in Dulwich Hill in 2012. Jacqui Krause "

"Rod and his team of professional tradespeople are simply brilliant. Ours was a complex and fiddly renovation and replacement program done in conjunction with full painting inside and out, extensive electricals inside and out, plumbing, shower re-build, kitchen renovation, decking replacement, floor sanding and polishing and so, co-ordination was critical to ensure all happened on time and within budget. Rod did this to perfection and we were delighted with the results."
