"Colin and Structured Builders took on our large project in Pt Chevalier. This large renovation and extension project had many challenges with both the site and the design. Colin managed the entire project including procurement of materials, management of the subs, building work and council requirements. Our experience with Colin couldn't have been better and the finished product was exceptional."
Steven, Pt Chevalier
"Colin has been an outstanding builder on our renovation project. The job became a beast as we decided to extend and improve the home that was in a poor condition but a great location for us. Colin has brought the best of himself to site everyday over the past year, both in work and fantastic sunny attitude, adding to the process and finished outcome. We have no hesitation in saying that Structured should be your first choice in a professional builder."
Roanne, Freemans Bay
"We couldn't be happier with what Colin has created for us. Our project wasn't exactly straightforward, we particularly wanted our extension in keeping with our original home and Colin absolutely achieved this. Colin had some fantastic ideas around layout and design. A joy to work with and wouldn't hesitate to recommend."
"Colin was absolutely delightful to work with. He kept the process really simple, kept to deadline and worked within my budget. Highly recommend."
