What our clients say about us:


Great job!

"I'd like you to know that this is one of the best run builds I've ever been involved with. It started with tenacity in getting through some pretty mind boggling red-tape. Along the way you've shown attention to detail and great communication. You've taken the initiative where you should have and sought client's feedback where needed. We had some hiccups (as you're bound to do when dealing with sub-trades) but what sets you guys apart is the recovery. Instantly taking responsibility and rectifying"                                                                                                                          Tim Wong   Albany

"I have recommended Build Smart..."

We recently employed Build Smart Group to undertake a large renovation on our house; we are very pleased with our choice.
The renovation was much larger than we anticipated but Ralph had prepared us for all possibilities. Unfortunately it was not good news; the house has simply been re-built because we had extensive rot. I am very impressed with the quality, the speed of the work and work ethic of the whole team. Build Smart have worked with us as we needed to live in the house whilst this extensive work was taking place.

All of the team have been clear and open in communications from the director to the apprentice and all of the guys in between.
We have been treated with respect and no question has been too small to be answered in a non-technical way so that we could clearly understand what was required and expected.
I have recommended Build Smart to others and I will continue to recommend them.

"who showed obvious expertise..."

We recommend Build Smart Group, led by Ralph and his expert team of professionals, as a company that has the interest and satisfaction of clients at the centre of everything it does.  
Our worries and apprehension over our homes required remedial work - including the cost, planning and implementation were eased by Ralph and his team’s attention to detail at every stage of the process.  
We were kept fully informed and up to date with what was happening and Ralph was always available to answer queries and provide solutions. The work was of an extremely high standard carried out by workman who showed obvious expertise and craftsmanship.
Well done to you all for making what was for us a stressful time less so.

"Very impressed..." 

Ralph, I have to thank you too. This has been the smoothest construction/renovation I’ve been involved in. Very impressed with your organisation and professionalism. The lenders have been thrilled with your communication and the way everything has gone.

I’ll definitely be recommending you! 
I don’t suppose you do any work out South?
