about builders sutherland shire


Twofold Building Projects is a luxury, custom home building company. It began as a partnership between Tim Dwyer and Dave Hughes, each with over 18 years of experience in the industry. Since its foundation, Twofold has expanded into a team of carpenters and developed a strong network of associated trades. The diverse range of skills and depth of training brings quality and finesse to all our projects. As bespoke home builders, we provide a personalised service that is tailored to each project. Twofold is local to the Sutherland Shire, servicing the wider Sydney and Illawarra regions.

Dave Hughes

Dave began as a qualified cabinetmaker, shopfitter and joiner. He trained and worked for many years with one of Sydney’s best, high-end cabinet making companies and has an eye for precision and detail. Dave’s passion for renovating and building his own properties allowed him to explore all aspects of construction and gave him the desire to diversify his skills to include carpentry and project management. Dave worked with LendLease on the construction of Sydney’s Barangaroo Project in formwork and organisational roles, and completed a carpentry qualification. Following this, Dave began working with TD Building, where Tim and Dave formed Twofold Building Projects together. Dave is your first point of contact at Twofold. He can talk with you about your project and walk you through the process. Dave oversees all the operations of the business and has his finger on the pulse of the building industry.

Tim Dwyer

Tim is a qualified, licensed builder with 20 years in the trade and registered with the Master Builders Association. Tim comes from a building lineage, with several of his relatives being highly skilled members of the construction industry. As such, from an early age, Tim has trained with some of the most experienced builders and has a strong, long-standing network among the local building community. Over ten years ago, Tim began his own building company, TD Building, which grew and evolved to become Twofold Building Projects when Dave joined the company. Tim oversees all of our projects monitoring quality, scheduling, productivity and logistics.

Nadia Hughes

Nadia comes from a teaching background (Bachelor of Education) and worked for 13 years at a large school in the Sutherland Shire in an administrative/executive role. There, Nadia managed the online systems, staff procedures and development, resources and purchasing, and marketing and communications. During her time in the education sector, Nadia built and renovated several homes with Dave. Nadia brings her passion for building and extensive experience in planning, organisation and training to Twofold. Nadia manages many of the details behind the scenes, working closely with suppliers and coordinating documentation.

Jayden De Lisen

Jayden is an experienced site foreman with a Bachelor of Construction Management. Jayden cut his teeth managing luxury, high-end townhouse and unit developments throughout Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and Northern Beaches. Jayden brings to the team an eye for detail and exceptional organisation and communication skills. Jayden coordinates our building projects on the ground. He supervises all the trades and subtrades and ensures the build goes to plan.

Kurt Anthony

Kurt is a qualified builder (Certificate IV Building and Construction) and an exceptional carpenter. He has worked his way up with us from an apprentice to a Site Foreman, trained and mentored by our Operations and Project Managers. Having worked along side many of our contractors for years, he has formed strong relationships, which enhances his ability to effectively manage and coordinate the different teams.

Let’s talk about your home.


“Twofold were able to execute and deliver the ultimate Aussie coastal home. It’s unique and exactly what we had envisioned. We love living here! Tim and Dave were honest and upfront. They provided great insight into aspects of the build that we had not thought about. They always conveyed that it was ‘our home’ and strived for the best result as opposed to the easiest. The workmanship was second to none. The Twofold team were very respectful in their dealings with us and our home. It’s clear that the team are passionate and love what they do. We absolutely LOVE our home and the end result has exceeded our initial expectation. The Twofold team were a pleasure to have around. Your workmanship was second to none and we valued your professional opinion throughout the building process when making decisions on aesthetics and practicality. Thanks for making the renovation process easy for us. You guys were the dream team.”

Kylie, Burraneer

“The build matched our vision perfectly. Twofold were very approachable and they offer lots of advice. Plus they have many other projects to take ideas from. Our experience from concept to build was fantastic, we recommend them very highly. Great company.”

Matt, Kirrawee

“The Twofold team was excellent from the very beginning. The communication, professionalism, and collaborative work ethic were exactly what we wanted. The communication was excellent, and everyone knew what was happening and when. Renovating our house to make it bigger and better was a dream come true, and we could not have picked a better team to bring it to life. We are absolutely thrilled with the final result, and we are enjoying our new space more than we thought possible.”

Bianca, Como

“When we decided to move to the Shire we created a wish list of what we were looking for in our new home. From the moment we walked in the front door we knew this was the house for us. It is so beautifully finished and the high ceilings and skylights make all areas feel so open and expansive. The timber floors downstairs flow perfectly onto the tiled outdoor entertaining area and with the sliding doors opening across the width of the house it creates a perfect alfresco entertaining space. Having another living area upstairs is fantastic for when we have our extended family visit. The sophisticated yet relaxed coastal feel is perfect given the proximity to the beach and fits perfectly with our lifestyle. Thank you, Twofold, for designing and building our perfect home.”

Christine, Woolooware

“We think Twofold are excellent blokes with a great work ethic and would highly recommend them. The boys are all friendly and good to be around. We have enjoyed all our experiences and we love our home. Twofold is trustworthy and reliable and we rate their quality, communication skills and the suggestions and support they offer.”
