Adrian and his team at Adecca Construction have recently completed a boutique 2 lot development for us.
We found Adrian to be personable, professional and showed a high care factor for the end result.
Adrian and his team were forced to deal with many extra challenges through COVID restrictions and supply issues.
Adrian came to us through a recommendation; one which we are also happy to pass on to anyone considering building a home or development.
Thank you Adrian.
I have known and worked with Adrian for close to 10 years on a variety of projects ranging from townhouses to multi level apartment buildings to my own family home. Over this time he has always been a pleasure to work with and his eye for detail has ensured that the end product delivered has always been to the highest standards. On each and every project we have worked on, Adrian has also provided input into the initial planning and design process to ensure cost efficiencies were obtained from the outset. He has also overseen all the landscaping down to the pool construction to ensure that all aspects of the build were completed on time and on budget. I would have no hesitation in working with Adrian again or recommending him for your next family home or project.
I was introduced to Adrian via an acquaintance in the building industry who previously employed him for many years. At the time, I was seeking several builders to respond to an urgent tender as I wanted to commence works quickly to avoid proposed heritage planning laws.
My previous house was built for my family by a reputable builder and was then subsequently renovated by another builder that was also recommended. After reviewing the tenders, including one of the builder’s mentioned, I shortlisted Adrian’s plus another. Adrian was impressive from the start. He is meticulous. It was clear that he planned thoroughly. Consequently, he was confident that he had considered and allowed for contingencies inherent in major renovations. Of course, neither of us predicted COVID-19, yet we decided to proceed with the renovation during the pandemic for different reasons. Our architects sounded confident that Adrian understood the brief, which gave some confidence to proceed.
The arrangement with the architects was that I would pay them an hourly fee when they were needed, rather than seeking their support to oversee the tender and project. A close commercial builder and friend helped me, and either Adrian or I would contact the architects throughout the project when we needed them. Adrian’s employees and subcontractors were sequenced to comply with COVID regulations. He also ensured that most working days there was at least one-person onsite building.
As Adrian has a low tolerance for poor workmanship, we also noticed that he only subcontracted to people whom he knew or were referred by those he trusted. There were some variations made to the plans in the course of construction following consultation with the architects for practical or aesthetic reasons. These were handled honestly. Pricing was clear and I never felt I was being extorted or mistrusted Adrian’s intentions. He takes a lot of pride in the work he delivers. He stakes his reputation on it and has built a brand based on good customer experiences and excellent results. During the defects period, Adrian was particularly impressive attending to all problems promptly at Adecca’s cost. I have no hesitation recommending Adecca, in fact I’ve already recommended him to friends and family. The architects were complimentary of his team’s workmanship and the way he handled the project too.
We would like to say thank you for the amazing home you built for us in Mitcham.
To capture how we feel with the least number of words is too simple say “It was a dream build” . We have an understanding of construction so would be the first to say that we are exacting clients, but we were never disappointed or frustrated because of your transparent approach with
everything, attention to detail and absolute determination to get it right and complete a home of an exacting high standard.
From the beginning of sitting down with you throughout the quoting period to the handover of the keys, nothing was ever too much trouble and thank you for the pride you took in every aspect of our home.
There are always issues that arise with any build especially custom home builds no matter how well and detailed the drawings are, but you always found solutions that enhanced the quality rather than take a short cut. A testament to your ethics, professionalism and honesty.
We would like to also recognise the efforts of your lead carpenter Mal who was practically on site from beginning to end. Thank you for your commitment and craftsmanship even through there were some challenging times, a real pleasure to have you on the site.
To summarise, Adecca Contructions provided exceptional quality, communication and service and it was a genuine pleasure to work with you.
There is the expression that you only get what you pay for which is very true but in this experience of building with Adrian we got more! Thank you.
