The end product is one of quality. Blue Gum used quality materials and employed quality tradesmen who did the work to a high standard.  There was a high degree of collective knowledge about construction methods across the team, and we always felt the building was being conducted as best practice. There is evidence of attention to detail throughout, and often working on-site myself next to the tradesmen, I was impressed by their desire to get the job done right, and not merely get it done.

Working with Andy and Paul is a pleasure. The stress of building and its endless decision making is reduced by their humour and quiet confidence.  I felt very well supported, and had complete trust in their capabilities.  This trust was fostered in their transparency, commitment to quality, and their attitude of integrity.  All of the people who have been working on site share this commitment, and are fantastic.  Not only their quality of work, but their obvious pride in what they do.

The build quality was terrific. The work was done on time, to budget, and to an extremely high standard.  Any concerns we had were quickly resolved without any bother – and such things were few and fair between. One thing that really impressed us was the quotation phase. Three builders quoted on our job, and Blue Gum were the only ones to come and meet us, ask loads of questions, send their contractors to check the site, then present a quote that included not only their price, but about six ways we could save money or subtly change the build to increase the quality/longevity of the work.

During the build I saw the attention to detail that everyone involved paid to their respective jobs to ensure that the work was done to the highest standards possible –  and this shows through in the final finish.  Also, during the build Blue Gum kept us informed of what was occurring and allowed me to plan ahead of time as we were still living in our home.  So, thank you for the excellent work you did and the professionalism and friendly attitude you showed to my family over the weeks.
