We have successfully renovated 3 houses with Adrian and the team at Sorensen Design & Planning. Their innovative ideas and practical approach, is extremely refreshing and we thoroughly recommend the Sorensen team to renovate your home.

— Mr & Mrs Lambert

We originally made contact with Sorensen to design our renovation extension project in Nelson Bay. We were very impressed by how efficient the team was, from initial meeting with Cameron right through to finance and administration, the whole team work seamlessly together which made it a very smooth and easy process to get our project into council. After such a positive experience, we then engaged them again for our next project which was out of area. Cameron again was exceptional in discussing our brief, and incredibly quick at getting the concept design through to us. Along the way there has been a lot to discuss in getting our plans to a stage we were happy with. Cameron and the team, were once again so efficient in their process, really easy to deal with and open to all our ideas and suggestions. Cameron's ability to think structurally, aesthetically and practically is a credit to his industry, and is something we have found hard to find with our local architects which is why we specifically sought the skills of Cameron to design our dream home. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sorensen Design and Planning for your project.

— Mrs Tasker

The team at Sorensen Design are an excellent option if you require an experienced building designer with local knowledge and connections. I am using Sorensen Design for dwelling alterations at my home in Tanilba Bay Port Stephens. From the quoting process, turnaround times, hints, tips and quality of work being provided I could not be happier.
