Estimating, engineering and technical advice for builders on the Central Coast
I’m Aaron Oates, a Building Consultant specialising in making things just that little bit easier for builders and homeowners on the Central Coast. I don’t see problems – I see challenges and solutions, and love nothing more than to see your building project “designed right”.
I work closely with you on new builds, renovations, second storey additions and decks to provide technical advice, estimating services and preliminary engineering expertise.
Drawing from my many years of experience working in the building industry, I streamline the building process and make your life easier by saving you time and money with one supplier.
With an extensive network of builders, architects, designers, suppliers and tradespeople on the Central Coast, I recommend only the best professionals to ensure your project is completed to the highest standards.

I’ll work with you on the project you plan to tackle and look after the estimating, quoting, ordering and supply process.
If you already have building plans, I’ll use them in my processes, or can refer you to an experienced and reputable Builder, Architect or Building Designer. I’ll put together your Bill of Quantities and aim to quote and supply as much or as little as you need.
I specialise in designing structural members for decks and pergolas, and lintels above windows and doors. I can engineer the structural components of your project and will consult with a licenced Structural Engineer when needed.
I’m not a Structural Engineer myself which works in your favour – I have enough experience and know how to tackle simple engineering tasks without the hefty price tag that will come from an Engineer.
With more than 17 years experience in the building industry, I have a wealth of knowledge I can pass onto you. I have a Diploma of Architecture and am an experienced Carpenter, and have worked on job sites and as a consultant in various supply stores.
This ‘all-round’ background means I’ve learned a thing or two about the building process and can provide technical advice and support where it’s needed.
As a licenced (RePL) Drone Pilot, I have the opportunity to capture images of the projects I work on from the sky.
These high quality images give you valuable insights into the progress of your build, allow you to scope landscapes and building sites, can act as keepsakes for your clients and can be used in marketing material to showcase your building or design expertise.
As a Building Consultant, I help streamline the management of your building project to minimise risk and maximise client satisfaction.

“Aaron designed two decks for me. He was helpful, prompt, thorough and showed excellent knowledge of what was required. The builds went very well, and ended up being a perfect match to his preliminary 3-D visualisations. I have no hesitation at all in recommending him”

Why work with Design Rite?
I do all the running around so you don’t have to. I look after your Bill of Quantities, order materials and supplies, decipher plans and quote everything you need, saving you many hours of precious time.
Often, it’s not what you know but who you know. I have an extensive network of suppliers and building contacts on the Central Coast and can source the most competitive deals for you and your clients.
Quoting, ordering, reading plans and meticulous checking can be a hassle for builders who just want to get on with building. That’s why outsourcing the fiddly parts of the job can be a huge weight off your shoulders.
I’d love to have a chat with you about your next building project. Whether you simply need a bit of guidance on a specific part of the build, or want complete technical expertise and support for the whole job, I can help.
