Renovation at 77 Arney Road 2009-2010

This is a recommendation to the high standard of work carried out by Brownbuilt Construction Ltd on my renovation and extension project.

The work entailed the addition of a total of 100 m2 basement garage, swimming pool, additions to the family room of 60 m2, extensive logia, kitchen, scullery, wine cellar, new driveway, retaining and other work required to bring the house back to a high standard.  The project had a large amount of steel and concrete substructure. The approximate cost of this venture was $1.5m and took 18 months to complete.

Andrew Patterson’s design capability kept the old arts and crafts style home to the original architecture, while giving modern living flow on an appropriate scale. The outdoor living and gardens made a huge transformation to this property.

Richard Brown tendered for the work and during the interview process was very open and honest about the way he would undertake the work. Once he was engaged the progress was immediate with his suggestions to enhance the initial construction design. He worked closely to the design which reflected the original style, which was challenging. His ability to be open to any last minute changes that came along made the building process proceed smoothly and making our relationship with Richard work extremely well. He was very open and transparent to the additional costs which gave a strong feeling of trust. His attention to the detail and continuous drive to complete on time is admirable.


I am happy to recommend Brownbuilt Construction Ltd.
