Scope of Works

Remedial and structural repair from earthquake damage to existing property. Partial demolition of existing property to make way for extension. Construction of 60+ sqm extension and tie into existing home. Building of double garage at the front of the house and ensuring all hard landscaping was complimentary to home.

Challenges

Budget, ensuring money was prioritised on current phases of build and not future phases. Finding family functionality in the amazing architectural designs, without compromising the integrity of the existing home or what they wanted to achieve with the design. Clients living on site – managing noise and work times/productivity.

Highlights

Close collaboration with the clients and architect to create a modernised living space in a century old villa. Restoring the existing home to its beautiful state and creating a private sanctuary for the owners in their yard.

Budget Range

$500,000 - $750,000

We undertook a reasonably large renovation of our early 20th century two story weatherboard house in the middle of 2015.  Michael and Miranda from Blue Summit quoted for the work, and took the time to understand what we wanted especially around areas such as accommodation, (for the time we had to be out of the house), design and budget.

They were successful with their quote and started on time and for the majority of the major work were on site every day.  Their team of builders were professional and hardworking and the project progressed quickly.  As is the case with any large project, there were inevitable problems, but Michael and Miranda dealt with each issue early and up front.  

We were very impressed with their standards of workmanship, from Blue Summit and their sub-contractors.  Michael and Miranda especially form a great partnership and we believe they acted with honesty and integrity throughout the project.

Now that the project has been finished, we can reflect on having worked with a professional building company with great staff who completed the building work to a high standard. And, we love living in our renovated home.  

We would highly recommend Blue Summit for any domestic building or renovation project you are considering and we would definitely use them again.
