About BSI

BSI is a market leader in providing drafting, estimating and rendering services to residential home builders in Australia and North America.

Our founders know volume building companies. They have collectively and individually run 2 of the largest residential building companies in Australia.

In 2003 BSI was established to provide an outsourced contract service for drafting, estimating and rendering to Australia’s largest residential building company. We have evolved since then to have a number of US and Australian builders on the client list.

We pride ourselves on accurate work with a quick turn around and at a fixed price per unit of service so builders can know the specific cost for the all important Bill of Quantities (BOQ).

We know how to scale up your business while keeping costs down and getting projects delivered on time and on budget.

BSI is backed by deep industry knowledge and local market expertise in the United States and Australia.

Our qualified team of over 140 university-trained architects and quantity surveyors are based in our offices in Perth, Australia; Dallas, Texas; and Manila, Philippines.
