John is the builder you want. He does what he says he will do. I found him positive, straightforward and efficient—a no-nonsense, highly capable person.

Nothing is a problem. He is all the things you want in a builder.

We were working in the UK and wanted to get this steel-framed home built in Ando. We needed a good builder. So we asked every architect we could for good builder references. They all said the same thing: ’John’s the one, he is a great builder’,  ‘He’s passionate about quality’, and, ‘He’s a good bloke.’

John turned out to be all those things.

We value his partnering approach. We became a close-knit team because John and all his guys treasure good design. They always seek to solve problems in the spirit of the design. With John it is exhilarating watching your buildings grow, because they turn out better than you dared hope. It is because they take the time to do things properly without compromise.

We believe he is the best around.
