"You should definitely give Rob a go with your new construction project. We experienced IDEA as a ‘one-stop-shop’ to construction. Whatever the issues, the answer was always ‘no problems, we’ll sort it out’. This took lots of pressure away from me, especially when it came to the building permits and dealing with the council. I would highly recommend them."
"This was my second project with IDEA Constructions and I know it is not the last one. Rob is super organised and his supervisors know what they are doing. Communication between them all is really great. There wasn't any construction downtime and at the end I was really happy with the quality of the whole project."
Marc and Nicole
"It has been an absolute pleasure working together with you on this development and we can truly say it's been the easiest and smoothest build so far to date. It's incredible! A credit to you both.
The workmanship and quality of finishes has far surpassed our expectations and we would have no hesitations at all in recommending you to any prospective clients.
We can only hope that when the time comes to construct again, you would be happy to work with us again!"
Carla and John
"John and I just got engaged and this is the first home we’ve built together. Robert was amazing, he checked the plans and gave us a few ideas and recommendations on where we could save some money. Robert answered our many questions and understood what was important to us. We appreciated Rob's guidance and we've learned so much from him. I highly recommend Robert and his team to build your home."
"I decided to downgrade and it took me ages to find a block of land where I could build a small home in the same neighborhood. Location was really important to me. I called Max Brown in Croydon and they put me onto Robert. I found him very obliging and helpful from the first call, a real gentleman. I felt looked after by Robert during the whole construction process."
"Rob did construction and fit-outs of several medical centres for us. He came in highly recommended by the building surveyor and has lived up to that expectation. His presentation, response time and customer service are second to none. Jobs were completed timely, which was important for my clients."
"Robert’s recent projects have been medium density developments which contained significant challenges in protection works, such as deep excavations, vertical cuts, rock anchoring and post-tensioned transfer slabs; including Type A and Type B Construction with mechanical, electrical and fire safety services. Robert’s technical knowledge and skills are excellent and the mandatory building inspections carried out have been to a high standard."
