To Whom it May Concern,

Saunders Building have recently completed a major house renovation of which we were the owners of 99 Elliott St, Hawthorne. We are ecstatic with the finished product, the building process/journey and strong relationship built across the build project team over 12 months from tender to house completion.

Kirby Saunders was invited to tender for the build project in August 2017, along with 3 other well known builders who had solid reputations in Brisbane renovation/restoration building projects. A client’s house, is the biggest personal asset that many people own and to entrust the success of the project to a builder which you may have met a few times takes a huge leap of faith. Apart from Kirby’s confidence in his abilities to complete the build on time and to budget, he also displayed a very flexible client- based approach. His mantra, which I am proud to say he upheld in every way throughout the build, was to take the day to day burden or stresses of the building project on board personally, with his number one goal to make the experience an enjoyable one for the client. Based on Kirby’s confidence and eagerness to take the job on we engaged his services and I am very happy to say, we truly never looked back.

Kirby’s outstanding ability to listen to the client, make suggestions on the run as required and co-ordinate all communication accurately and timely between both the client and the architect was amazing. The Saunders building team, which encompassed five builders on site, showed a very high level of capability with the finishes provided. All contractors to Saunders Building, liaised with the client like it was their own job and strong relationships were also built. This is testament to the way the job was co-ordinated by Kirby through the seamless transitions between the many different phases of the job and trades/contractors on site. In particular, the final part of the build, where many elements overlapped with over 30 people on site at once. The job site always remained positive and every contractor went to great lengths to ensure the client was happy.

We would have no hesitations in recommending Saunders Building to any prospective owners who are engaging in a new home or renovation build project. We would be only too happy to share further detail on our building experience given the positive outcome we believe we have enjoyed.
