About Us

We’re more than just another Brisbane builder

What sets Ascent Design and Build apart is that we are design and construction specialists. That means you get more than just a builder. We have been building quality extensions and renovations since 1996. We complete every aspect of the build from inception to completion. That means there’s nothing for you to do except move in your furniture and decorate.

The founder, owner, and principal builder of Ascent Design and Build is Bruce Parke. Bruce is a third-generation builder and qualified drafter, beginning his career in 1991 as a carpenter. From there, Bruce went on to a supervisor role with a building company before moving into design and drafting for high-end million-dollar homes. This extensive experience means that Bruce has an intricate understanding of the Australian Standards and Regulations, Building Codes of Australia, construction methods, materials, design, planning applications and processes.
