We were recommended Saunders Building by a friend and we now we know why. Kirby was great to deal with. Our renovation was on time and on budget. He had many ideas to help us on our way and when we did want something changed his flexibility was great. Would not have a worry in the world recommending him for any further jobs.

We are pleased to recommend Saunders Building Company following the successful completion of our home renovation. Of the six builders who made pre-quote visits to our home Kirby Saunders proved to be the most professional, positive and creative. When faced with a major challenge to construct the room extension without impacting our current living space Kirby and his team cleverly found a solution. Kirby and his team displayed an enthusiastic work ethic and achieved the highest standard possible in the finished appearance. Kirby constantly kept us informed of progress and managed to successfully juggle the timely delivery of goods and the provision of qualified ancillary trade staff. We are thrilled with the outcome of this project and gladly recommend Kirby and his team to bring your building dreams to reality.

Kirby Saunders and Saunders Building Company have my full recommendation for any building project.
Kirby gave attentive and polite service from our first meeting. His quotes were the most detailed and openly broken down by trades. He negotiated fairly and promptly to bring the project costs down to our budget, as well as making constructive ideas to save costs and time to our renovation.

Throughout the whole quoting, negotiating, contract detail and all parts of the construction he was easy to deal with, attentive to detail and on-site supervision was timely and practical. He started and finished on time, with his sub –contractors being polite, timely, and excellent tradesmen. His on-site crew were excellent and are to be recommended in their own right.

Kirby’s attention made the building project run smoothly and without stress – all in all a happy and enjoyable building process.

Kirby Saunders, principal of Saunders Building Company, won the competitive tender for a residence of our design on the Sunshine Coast. During the period 2015-2016 the project was successfully completed to the satisfaction of the owners and the contract administrator, who was also the architect named here. The site was extremely difficult, the design was detailed and non-standard, and the clients were very particular and continued to make preferential changes during the construction period. Kirby was responsive and professional to these challenges and his high level of communication was integral to achieving a polished product, on time and budget. Our experience working with Kirby and his team was such that we would be pleased to offer him more tenders, and to have confidence that he will deliver the product with a minimum of disruption, and can accommodate the usual unexpected circumstances along the way. His attitude and capacity to work with a multi-disciplinary team is a worthy skill in this industry and I wish him well for the future.

Thank you Kirby. This has been an awesome experience for us. You and your contractors have been amazing. Thank you to Dan for almost becoming part of our family for 4 months. We can honestly say that we have got exactly what we wanted and there is not one part of this house we are disappointed with. Great company to deal with, you should all be very proud of the workmanship displayed on this job.

The entire process with Saunders Building Company was seamless and straightforward. As we were still living in the property with our young children during the renovation it was important to have trust worthy and friendly building staff, we were certainly not disappointed! The entire process of the project was ran efficiently keeping us informed every step of the way, any changes or enhancements we looked for along the way was never too much trouble or hassle. We are so thrilled with the result and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Saunders to anyone looking to renovate or build.

Kirby and the team at Saunders Building made renovating our workers cottage a truely enjoyable experience. The project was very well organised and ran smoothly thanks to the hands on approach by Kirby who was involved from original quoting to final hand over. Kirby and the team delivered a fantastic result on time and on budget and would recommend to anyone willing to undertake a similar build.

We engaged Saunders Building Company to undertake our renovation in January of 2017. From the start, through the process of quotation right until the keys were handed over, Kirby and his team displayed nothing but professionalism. No question or query went unanswered and all communication was undertaken in a timely and professional manner. Kirby expects a high quality of workmanship from his team which was made evident by the end result of our renovation. We could not be happier with the end product of our renovation. In light of this we highly recommend Saunders Building Company to undertake any scale of building works you wish to complete.
— Abbey Bielefeld, Keperra
Saunders Building Company turned our dream renovation into a reality. Kirby was without fail honest and punctual in all communications during the project and we were never left wondering where we sat in relation to the timeline. He had no issue explaining things we didn’t quite understand, working with us to provide solutions to any issues that popped up along the way. Variations were not a problem and were embraced with full disclosure of the extra costs that may be incurred. Saunders Building staff and contractors were always professional and courteous and obviously take pride in their work. Their attention to detail is very high, ensuring the finished product is of excellent quality. I would recommend Saunders Building Company for any building work.

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.
