Brett came to us after we managed our own tender; we were exhausted and frustrated with the process and knew our project was ambitious. We started to think that perhaps we were out of our depth. We started to not believe we were ever going to realise our dream home. We were referred to Brett by a friend who had a good experience with Area Projects. Instantly when we met Brett, we had a rapport.
He suggested ways we could economise and bring the costs back to within our budget without compromise to design or our lifestyle goals. Area Projects staff during the build were committed and very friendly. Brett and his team completed our renovation that was something beyond our wildest expectations. There were stressful times during the build but Brett was always a steady ship; he took control of the situation. Overall, we are extremely happy we chose Brett to help us achieve our home. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
Choosing a builder can be quite difficult but the team at Area Projects have been a pleasure to work with. We have worked with Brett and Area Projects on a number of projects which has included our first house and our current house.
Brett is not only professional, he is extremely easy to deal with, accommodating and trustworthy. He was always happy to hear our ideas, give feedback and be flexible which I felt made the whole building process a lot smoother. More importantly, Area Projects delivered an exceptional end result and we recommend them to all of our family and friends. Building and renovating can be quite stressful especially when you want your home to be perfect and don't want to blow your budget. Brett and the team made the building process less stressful through good communication and always being on hand to discuss or answer questions.
We purchased our sloping block in Balwyn North with the intention of constructing a new family home with one of the major volume builders. However after several months of frustrating discussions and a drawn out costing process we decided to part ways. Enter Brett McGauchie from Area Projects who had come highly recommended by a work colleague that was mid-way through a major renovation of their period home.
From the outset Brett was extremely professional and exceptionally eager to please. We had only ever done small renovations before, so appointing a builder to construct an entire new home was a nerve wracking prospect. Brett quoted our job promptly and thoroughly and within our budget, and assured us that he and his team had the skills and experience to deliver a first class result.
We can't speak highly enough of Area Projects. The team managed a full renovation of our hundred year old Victorian house and did a fantastic job. Throughout the project all members of their team were very professional and easy to work with. We were kept well informed throughout the progress of the project with communication lines remaining open at all times.
Overall the renovation was delivered on schedule and on budget and their quality finishes on our home are a pleasure to live in.
