The Brief

An Architect designed modernist style building with a large amount of challenging details, located in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW.  ENCE Design, Anna Sulsters Interiors and GP Design Structural Engineers.

The Solution

We worked with the brief and delivered on time and on budget.

Whilst the construction documents were of high quality many of the finer details needed to be worked out on site. During the construction period the liaison between client and builder was always positive and productive. The details in the design required a high level of quality workmanship and this was achieved.

The Result

Several years ago we purchased a small rural property in Bundanoon NSW. We wanted to build a studio residence for temporary accommodation. Upon receiving some local recommendations we decided to employ Gibraltar Construction.

I have worked in the construction industry for nearly 40 years, an industry which can at times be quite adversarial. So I had certain preconceived views about builders and subcontractors. As construction on the studio progressed that view changed.

Delivery was swift with no excuses for delays, or lack of material or subcontractors and it was a pleasure to work with Luke and his boys. Subsequently the studio won an MBA Illawarra Region award for “Best Studio” category.

Therefore it was an obvious choice and without any hesitation we negotiated a contract to build our home with Gibraltar Construction. The home is an Architect designed modernist style building with a large amount of challenging details.

The value of the building was approximately $1.7 m. Whilst the construction documents were of high quality many of the finer details needed to be worked out on site. During the construction period the liaison between client and builder was always on a positive note.

It was gratifying to work with Luke and his team. Not only did they rise to the challenge, we believe they thrived on the experience. We found the Gibraltar team to be friendly, accommodating, honest and totally reliable.

We were always kept abreast of any current or potential issues during the construction period and mutual plans of action were implemented where required. At all times we were kept informed of where the costs were heading and any cost implications, due to our desired detailing were always discussed so that rational decisions could be made.

The detail in the design required a high level of quality workmanship and we feel this has been achieved. As a close friend of ours who is also very experienced in the industry commented: “the building oozes with quality”.

We are totally satisfied with our home and would highly recommend Gibraltar Constructions to anyone wishing to build a home be it small or large. The quality is there, the delivery is guaranteed and above all there is an honesty in dealing with Luke and Jason.

We believe the project was delivered within our time frame, within our budget allowance, with negligible defects and to a high level of workmanship. In other words ON TIME, ON BUDGET, DEFECT FREE, HIGH QUALITY.
