Dave and I decided to go with Base Construction as we had a great ‘gut feeling’ that nothing would be too much trouble for Blair and his team. We were told we could make little tweaks along the way and it would be part of the process rather than it being an expensive exercise for us. It was the right decision. The process went very smoothly and to schedule. We are so happy with our new extension, it’s everything we imagined and it has made such a difference to our daily lives and to the value of our house.
Without exception, every tradesman involved was skilled, friendly and efficient.
In a social environment, Blair has many lasting friendships from previous and current clients. To see your builder socially after they build our house is one thing, but to see so many clients of Base Construction remaining good friends says a lot about the integrity of the company. We recommend them over and over!
Blair, Gareth and Base Construction completed major renovations on our family house in Fremantle from February – June 2015. The project consisted of demolishing the back half of the house (kitchen, dining room, bathroom, office and courtyard) and re-pouring concrete foundations, walls with a completely different pitched roof and replacing the pre-existing tiles with a colour bond steel roof.
Throughout the project, Blair and his team were exception in all facets; from regularly keeping us updated on the project, providing practical input into our design ideas and aspirations, outlining goals and sticking to them and most importantly, being flexible to our last minute request for deviation to our original plans and ensuring the project progressed regardless of the roadblocks that presented themselves.
As we are in the heart of Fremantle, space was very tight and Blair had to deal with limited parking space and a very small, shared rear parking area that was shared by three separate neighbours. Blair, Gareth and the contractors he used to complete the task were extremely courteous to the neighbours and made every effort to ensure they kept them onside throughout the project.
At the end of the project, both my partner and I were absolutely wrapped with the result Base Construction had delivered. The craftsmanship of the work was exceptional and we would highly recommend them for potential new builds and renovations.
We won’t hesitate to recommend Base Construction. What we loved most about them was their excellent ability to project manage. They were reliable, and very experienced in coordinating trades, which meant that our project was completed very quickly.
They have a very high standard of work and their attention to detail is second to none. They had excellent communication and consulted with us thoroughly along the way to make sure we were happy with all the work.
We have worked with m any builders over the years and we were delighted that they took pride in keeping the site clean and tidy.
We look forward to working with them again on future projects.
Blair and the team at Base Construction have recently transformed our outside entertaining and pool area.
From our first meeting, Blair’s professionalism, work ethic and problem solving skills gave me great confidence in choosing them for the project.
It has been a real pleasure to have Blair, Gareth and the team working with us.
All of the building work has been completed to excellent standard, the site was cleaned up everyday and communication between Blair and I has been paramount.
Blair and Gareth have a great network of extra professionals and a wonderful ability to coordinate them to ensure the project is delivered on time.
We have done many renovations, but this has by far been the best thanks to Base Construction.
We look forward to working with Base Construction again.
For someone who had a tiny game plan – most of it in my head, I have to say I was blown away with how things turned out. It was exactly like how I imagined, if not better.
Throughout every stage of the build, Blair and his team handled things with calmness and professionalism. Things that did not go according to plan were righted quickly and respectfully.
I was kept in the picture the throughout the entire process, and the team completed the job within budget.
