“We are thrilled with our garden renovation completed by Unique Constructions. Ricardo and his team did a fantastic job. We consider their strengths to include provision of a detailed quote, no variations other than those related to our additional requirements, continually seeking our input in on-the-job decision making, proactively offering suggestions to enhance the design, an amiable and extremely customer focused team, attention to detail, cleanliness of worksite, constant dialogue with Ricardo face-to-face and via telephone and email.
We are hoping to use Unique Constructions for the next stage of our renovation and would thoroughly recommend them to others”.

To who it may concern,
"This is the first time that we needed a builder and we were undertaking a large piece of quite complex renovation work. We were very apprehensive after meeting with a few builders because of the lack of information and details on the entire process and slow feedback. After our first meeting with Ricardo, we were much more confident and excited about the process. Ricardo provided very quickly and efficiently a detailed quote which actually came back at a very competitive price.
From the moment we agreed on the quote, Ricardo and his team started the job in rapid time frames, were exactly on schedule and regardless of the complexity stayed to the initial quote. Being rather meticulous individuals, my wife made slight changes during the process and each time Ricardo was more than happy to adapt to the changes
Ricardo’s entire team at Unique constructions were all very professional, friendly and accommodating. The completed job itself was exceptional and regardless the competitive price, the end result was of the highest quality.
The entire experience exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate a second to use them for any future work and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to build a house from scratch all the way to a minor renovation"

"Ricardo was a pleasure to work with.
We had about 3 or 4 Quotes and Ricardo’s was the lowest. I was a little worried that there were omissions and that they would be added later as Variations, however I shouldn’t have as everything that we requested was included and more. In fact some issues that arose in the building process (to do with design) were changed and fixed without cost by Ricardo. He also added some things, free of charge, that other builders would have charged for.
Ricardo is a finisher and his first priority is that you will be entirely happy, and he has done this for us. We are delighted with the outcome.Ricardo’s is a small team, so on the positive you know the guys working on your project, on the negative there are limited resources to complete the project quickly. Ours took longer than expected, in fact we had to go away on a pre-booked holiday and leave Ricardo to finish the final 1/3. On return it was like “Renovation Rescue”, seeing all the changes we envisaged, plus the lawn was cut and the driveway was swept and water blasted, it was all very impressive. This story also gives you an idea of the trust we built in Ricardo as well, to leave him with the keys to the house to complete the job.
So, would I use Ricardo again and recommend him to others. YES Absolutely! But plan on it taking a bit longer than expected, in the end the delay is worthwhile, I rang some other references and so I knew this was a possibility and was prepared"
“We were more than happy with the team at Unique Constructions from the start to finish of our major home renovation project. Having started out with a clear idea of what we wanted to achieve, and after discussions with a number of builders, we were impressed by Ricardo’s obvious empathy with our ideas and needs.
Throughout the project Ricardo worked with us and offered useful advice and suggestions to help us achieve the best result.His team and the various tradespeople he uses are all expert craftspeople.
We were greatly impressed by the attention to detail and the care for quality that are obvious throughout. At the same time Ricardo was conscious of our budget and produces a great result at a fair price.
It was a pleasure working with Unique Constructions and we are very happy to recommend them.”

“Ricardo and his team helped us create our wonderful home which included a lot of interior and exterior work, and extending our home. We added a living area, a bedroom, kitchen, deck, dining room and a lot of other changes. It was a fairly major undertaking for us, and Ricardo's team have made it a wonderful experience and journey for us.
Ricardo was always easy to get in touch with and has added so many personal touches to our project, giving us ideas along the way, even when it meant so much extra work! He was able to keep to the budget and kept us aware of costs when we made changes, helping us reduce them right from the start. He is flexible, approachable, and very practical.
It has been such a pleasure working with a good, honest, hardworking and talented team. We strongly recommend them to anyone who wants what we got! We couldn't be happier”

"After obtaining a number of quotes for our outdoor entertaining area, we chose Unique Constructions purely and simply because of Ricardo. We were instantly impressed by his honesty and integrity, genuine interest in achieving the best possible outcome, and terrific communication skills.
He always took the time to answer our incessant questions and to offer helpful suggestions, and responded quickly and effectively to both phone and email inquiries.Ricardo’s team was also a pleasure to have around - they were cooperative, adaptable, friendly and professional and always left our yard in a neat and tidy condition.
The quality of Unique Constructions’ workmanship is outstanding and Ricardo’s attention to detail and “finishing off” in ways we would never have considered really have made the final structure – a large covered deck with screens and built-in seating – an absolute showpiece and one of our favourite parts of the house.
We will definitely employ Unique Constructions again for other renovation projects, both inside and outside, and we thoroughly recommend Ricardo and his team for their patience, their expertise, their commitment and their rare ability to deliver not just an on-budget project, but the best customer service we’ve come across in the building industry."

"Ricardo / Unique Construction team was in charge of our renovation which involved adding 2 master bedrooms, 2 ensuits kitchen / laundry extension, and cosmetic changes to both interior and exterior of the existing house. Throughout the project Ricardo was clear & honest with his communications, and very co-operative and helpful with making in time decisions. Ricardo was also open to feedback and willing to accept & adopt to any changes that we proposed during the construction.
Ricardo always presented us with great ideas, and had a good team to back him up with the execution of those ideas. In addition to all, Ricardo's computer skills (e.g., tracking plan
changes & email) played an important roll in the overall project communication and worked quite effectively when we had to communicate from overseas.

"Unique Constructions undertook a demolition and re-build project in a timely and professional manner. The various trades were scheduled well and aside from some weather problems, all work was completed very professionally.
Ricardo was always available by phone if last minute details needed discussion.
We were very please with the outcome"

"It was an easy decision to choose Unique Construction to extend our family home. We were impressed with Ricardo upon first meeting him and appreciated his advice on different options that we could take.
We found Ricardo and his team to be professional, efficient, friendly and always accommodating. We were advised at each stage of the building of expected progress/time frame and the job was completed well within the predicted period.
Ricardo's experience as a builder is reflected in the fabulous results of his work. His workmanship is of the highest standard and his attention to detail has been outstanding both in construction and customer service. Since completing the building, Ricardo and his team have continued to follow-up and have gone out of their way to do many extras.
We would definitely recommend Unique Constructions to anyone considering building"

"I found Ricardo and his team of workers helpful and attentive to my building needs. Ricardo was willing to go that extra bit to find the look I was after, even as far as looking under his own house for that something that would suit my house.
Overall I was really pleased with the look that was achieved for my house. The extension of both front and back has impressed both me and my neighbours"

"We are absolutely delighted with the renovation that Unique Constructions did on our apartment. This was our first major renovation and working with Ricardo throughout the project was a stressless and rewarding experience.
Ricardo has an extremely & flexible manner and dealt with all our uncertainities and changes of mind with patience and good humour, giving us invaluable advice and suggestions at every turn. He has an absolute commitment to delivering a quality outcome and often surprised & us with his attention to detail and his rigour in overseeing the work of his tradespeople.
We were particularly impressed with Ricardo's post project support & with regular inspections and attention to small jobs we were often not even aware needed doing. The outcome is a joy to be in and we are constantly receiving compliments on the quality of the renovation.
I can unequivocally endorse Ricardo as an outstanding partner to have supporting you through a renovation or construction project"

"As professionals in the Renovation market our reputation relies greatly on our ability to find and use quality builders. We have engaged Unique Constructions on three of our residential projects, they give fair prices, have always been on budget and have met realistic schedules.
We have never had any cause to question their integrity or honesty.One of the most valuable things about their service is that they answer the phone and are available to handle inquiries or concerns.
Both we and our clients have always been very pleased with the works they have undertaken. We are always pleased to have Unique working on our projects,& will continue to invite them to tender for future works and look forward to working with them again"
Graham Swan, Director

"The selection of Unique Construction was as a result of a competitive tender process and a subsequent interview that outlined the expectant quality of the final product. Through this process it was determined to engage Unique Constructions on a fixed lump sum contract, that included co-ordination of a large provisional sum of item sourced and purchased by us.
From the outset, Ricardo wholeheartedly embraced and shared our vision and undertook the works with vigour and with a keen eye to detail.
From his selection of subcontractors to his own personnel on site, he skillfully managed the quality to ensure best outcomes for a challenging project that included an adjoining attached dwelling that was inhabited the whole period during construction.
Ricardo understood his responsibilities and set about ensuring that all the pieces in the puzzle fit perfectly.The final product is a true testament to his understand the clients requirements and his own motivation to produce quality work. We found the team at Unique Constructions to be honest, reliable and more importantly a pleasure to work with."
