My horrify experience with Nusteel
Very poor workmanship. Very slow to build delay time over one year with just lockup stage. His most subcontractors don't have experience. During building damage other.. Make sure before sign agreement asks for his insurance because he doesn't want to give you straight away. Please be advised that Nu-Steel homes are owned, managed, supervised. This business probably has problem with cash flow. He always say not true. We start next week, next week, week, after etc when start waits for another time. Very often he asks for money next stage when t...he first stage not finished on half way. If I had read them before choosing Nu-Steel, Trinusteel, Blusteel Homes etc He change his company name frequency, after i finished with his company, I know why he changed so often. Disgusting. Very poor workmanship, very disorganized. Very slow to build.
Warning! stay away from this company (and Ian Wood Homes)
My experience has been appualing. Its been 1 year and 7 months since hand over was due. There is hardly ever anyone one on site. We have many different supervisors and they have been so disorganised! they keep promising me things will get done but they never get done. They always deliver the incorrect items and have no care for anything. I had to holdback payment as ammunition for them to fix the damaged and wrong items. They are so disorganised and fail to meet deadlines. My wife and I have had many sleepless nights and have been under massiv...e stress because of this company. Also i can confirm that Ian Wood Homes also is owned by [name removed] who owns NuSteel so they are effectively the same company. My house is still not finished and I am not paying them another cent untill it is completed to standard so the whole process will have probably equated to about 3 years (if it ever gets done. Someone we know is also building with them and they are having the exact same problems. Its absolutely disgracefull and we are even considering legal support. Do yourself a favour and stay away! Absolutely nothing was satisfactory! Everything was wrong!
I work abroad quite a bit and to kill time between contracts I decided to design a house. I then decided i wanted to build it. I contacted Nu-Steel amongst others to quote on the framing system and went with their quote. I was pretty impressed with the quality of framing system, and the service provided during the build. As an owner builder, building from my own design, and doing most of the work myself I needed a bit of handholding from time to time and found the client service team at Nu-Steel to be very patient and pragmatic in resloving iss...ues which ineviably arouse during the build. Although I had quite detailed drawings of what i wanted to build, I found that in preparing the engineer drawings for Council Nu-steel to be very sympathetic to my original concept - the recommendations they made during this phase were practical in terms of the build rather than what was most convenient. I still have a bit of work to do before the final completion inspection but after all the hard work it now looks just like it did in the drawings. I wouldn't like to say I would do it again but I'm really glad I have done it once. If you have a clear idea about what you want but don't know how to take it forward then Nu-steel are definately worth a serious look at. Steel framing system is very robust and relatively easy to assemble (a good quality tec screw gun and a plumline and you are off and running). Screwing and riviting steel requires more patience and endurance that nailing timber with a nail gun.

Know better, choose better.
Very poor workmanship, very disorganised site managers. Very slow to build. No one on site for over 2 months at a time. The cost and time to build blew out by over 30%. Please be advised that Nu-Steel homes are owned, managed, supervised and run by the same people as Ian Wood Homes. You may wish to read some of the reviews for Ian Wood Homes too. If I had read them before choosing Nu-Steel, knowing they're one in the same, I would have gone elsewhere. The whole process has been a very expensive disaster. Initial quote seems very competitive but...I ended up paying more for a second rate home, than my friends spent on a home twice the size built by one of the more prestigious building companies. I couldn't flaw my friend's house, while mine looks a mess. Disgusting.
I don't have any experience with other builders so quite difficult to give an opinion. I am satisfied with Construction but not satisfied with management of project.
Was good for the price compared to other builders.
I have been very disappointed the way Nu-steel has taken care of finishing my house. It's been almost a year from Handover & still there are some areas that need to be fixed. The whole year I have been following up through emails, phone calls every time if I catch with any of the related staff I have been give a new excuse & next date of finishing the job.
Questions & Answers
My ex-husband and I built a Nusteel home 32 years ago. My partner and I would like to renovate our home and upgrade the kitchen. My home has a gable roof and we have a central wall that divides the family room and the kitchen living area . We would like to remove most of that wall and open the whole space between the kitchen and family room so we have one spacious room . Living and kitchen area together. From my understanding we wouldnt have to put in any extra support structure when removing that wall because of the gable roof . Is that true?
Kind Regards ,
HI Jane, I was build lockup stage with this company. I will never build again. When my washing machine spin all floor shaking. We spend a lot of time and money to fix a lot of bad work. This company its very bad. Now it is not surprise for me the reason why they change very often name of this company from trinusteel, nusteel, brusteel,trinusteel, no leaks, chesterfield prestige homes . Please more research and make sure 100% before engage contact with this company. In my opinion its very dodgy company.
