We are passionate about building homes in the Ballarat region. Our director Jack Dodd has followed in his grandfather Vince Di Cesare’s footsteps in building, with Vince starting work in the Ballarat construction industry in the late 1950’s.

Jack’s passion to deliver quality homes and deliver a seamless and enjoyable building experience is his and the entire JV Dodd teams main goal when building for clients.

We understand the importance of being tasked with building and creating people’s homes. We take pride on delivery quality workmanship that stands the test of time and are always proud to put our name to every job we build.

“We have an honest and upfront approach to building homes and pride ourselves on delivering to clients expectations each and every time. No gimmicks or unrealistic quotes with hidden extras, clear and accurate pricing and communication from day one is what you can expect. I pride myself on my and my teams reputation and am proud to put the JV Dodd name to everything we build.”
Jack Dodd, Director


My partner and I have recently begun the process of building with J.V Dodd.
We met with several builders and found the decision to choose J.V Dodd a simple one. The standard inclusions far eclipsed all local competition with stone bench tops, extra site costs and other premium inclusions covered in the initial quote.
Jack showed us through a recently built home and pointed out the points of difference such as corked wall finish, abundant electricity ports (3 TV ports) just to name a few.
Jack is supported by his overly qualified head of administration, Lizzie. Lizzie has made changes to our design in a timely manner (of which there have been several) as well as offering sound construction knowledge which has made the process a breeze.
J.V Dodd’s attention to detail has been evident throughout the process so far and we look forward to finishing our home in the near future.
We highly recommend J.V Dodd’s services to anybody considering building a new home or investment property.

We are currently building with JVDodd and so far Jack, Lizzie and the the team have been absolutely fantastic to deal with!! Their attention to detail is second to none, they are always quick at responding to enquiries, their communication is fantastic and they have honestly been nothing but amazing since our first interaction with them!
They are one step ahead of everything, keep us updated with the progress, and they are so organised which had made the whole process enjoyable and stress free so far! Their plans are great and practical and we have had no issues customising to suit our needs. The inclusions available to use for the build are so nice!! I cannot wait to see the finished product of our build and I am so happy we made the decision to build with JV Dodd – I would recommend them to anyone!!

Jack, Lizzie and the team at J.V Dodd Building were an absolute pleasure to work with. I’ve just moved into my new house and I couldn’t be happier, with the service we received throughout the process and the quality of the finished product, I would 100% recommend using J.V Dodd for your next build!

“I just recently moved into my newly built house with JV DODD and couldn’t be happier with the result. The team was so accommodating throughout the whole building experience and nothing was too much to ask. The quality finishes throughout the house were exceptional and a standard above others I have seen. Will recommend to all that I know.”

“I appreciate your time and effort. I found your company to be the most knowledgeable and upfront regarding everything which goes a long way in my mind. Also, the fact you are a completely local builder.”

“Jack and the team provided a great service and high quality finished product. He was transparent and great at communicating throughout my build. I built an investment property through JV Dodd building and will do so again in the future. There were no smoke and mirrors, honesty and guidance from day one until the completion of my build. I couldn’t recommend JV Dodd building highly enough.”

Peter McDougall

“After recently selling our previous home we were in the market for another one. We were fortunate enough to come across Jack Dodd’s first build in the later stages of its construction. We signed up to purchase and waited for the settlement date to come around not quite knowing what to expect given the problems people have with new builds. We were pleasantly surprised that Jack had really gone the extra mile and the house was ready to move into on the ambitious settlement date.a truly great job for which we were extremely grateful. For us, Jack is a champion, you can take his word to the bank , literally. If he says the job will be done you can be assured it will be. The build itself is really special, being Jack’s first complete build he used it to showcase his exceptional building talents. If this is any indication he has a bright future ahead of him in the building industry. We found Jack to be warm , open and honest , a man of his word, if he says something will be done, it will be, a no B/S approach. He is hard working, a perfectionist and his attention to detail is beyond anything we have seen in our home ownership history, (this is our fifth purchase, second new build).”
