We engaged St Andrews Constructions to complete an extensive renovation of our home in Noosaville. During our first meeting Steven explained that St Andrews stood for excellence. They did not let us down! 
Steven has great communication skills, being friendly, honest and easy to talk to. His project management was outstanding and very hands on, keeping us up to date on all developments on a daily basis.
Steven displayed an easy rapport with his Trades and they in turn were always respectful and valued his strong work ethic. He refuses to compromise on quality of product or craftsmanship.
We are thrilled with the completed result and highly recommend St Andrews Constructions to anyone looking for an overall exceptional building experience.
Thanks for everything Steven, our journey continues!

Steve turned a run down and completely gutted former pawn brokers into a stunning, accessible and sustainable modern office building that perfectly suits our business needs. We appreciated his thoughtful and consultative approach to getting the job done. He took extra care to ensure the build met our needs – going above and beyond to deliver.

We had the pleasure of working with Steven of St Andrews Construction on the renovation of our home – adding on a dressing room, renovating two bathrooms and adding a deck linking two areas.
Steven was a consummate professional throughout the course of the renovation. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and the cost of our project. He used the best sub-contractors as well and we ended up extremely satisfied with a top class house. He consulted us right through the project and we were never left in the dark. Steven also came up with practical solutions and alternatives as the project went along and wasn’t rigid when we wanted to make changes along the way.
His team was always respectful, extremely tidy in the workplace and the worksite was never left in disarray. Stairs were covered with protective sheets as to prevent damage whilst accessing areas being renovated.
The rather large project was completed on time, within budget and with minimal disruption to our family. We would highly recommend using St Andrews construction if you want to be assured of high quality workmanship and no shortcuts.

My wife and I engaged St Andrews Constructions on the verbal reference of others. We wished to completely gut and refurbish our apartment in Noosa Heads. With the dramas of the world and given we don’t reside in Australia, we had to make the call whether or not to commence without being able to be on site at any time during the process.
We were confident enough in Steven’s ability to proceed. From start to finish we have been highly impressed. Steven has a formidable team covering all the bases. There is not a single item we have been unhappy with. The quality of work and attention to detail is excellent. Their recommendations on various fitout items were first class and clearly the result of experience. Not only are their tradesmen extremely proficient but the consultants they suggested (architect, engineer etc) were also excellent. The end result has been exactly as we imagined and we couldn’t be happier.
We were kept up to speed throughout construction with frequent photos, summaries and Zoom calls where needed so we could make a call where decisions were required. The only cost variations have been a result of us changing specifications or adding in additional items.
The whole process has been simple and enjoyable. We have no hesitation in recommending St Andrews Constructions and will undoubtedly use them again when the opportunity arises.

We have a home that was about 3 decades old when we decided to have it renovated. It was a double brick – brick inside and out. Very little had been done to it since its original build, except a small renovation in the 1990’s.
The renovation was going to be an extensive one, and one that required a lot of skill. It is so much easier to build a new house than to renovate an old one. There is the constraint of the original footprint and structural walls to work within. We approached at least six builders. And only two of them were even prepared to take it on or give a quote. Obviously, it was going to be a challenge for any normal builder. We needed a builder that had lots of experience in renovation.
This is where Steven came in. He had had lots of experience renovating old homes. There renovation is more likely the case than a new build. Steven had the experience we needed for this “difficult” renovation and the skill. So he took the plunge.
We are so pleased with the result. It was the easiest build we have ever had and that was due primarily to Steven. In fact the build was a pleasure. It was exciting and fun. I have never been able to say that of any of our builds in the past!
Steven is a great communicator. He kept us in the loop and regularly consulted with us. He anticipated issues and made suggestions based on his experience. It came to the stage that we so trusted Steven’s recommendations that we felt that they would be the sensible choice without question. If we had any concerns or questions, Steven was very open to discussion, easy to negotiate with and solution oriented.
Steven has great organisational skills. He monitored his staff, deliveries and lead times so that the flow of work continued smoothly. Steven’s high standard of communication also came to the fore with his staff, whom he managed firmly but fairly.
Steven had a good team working with him. From the carpenters, plumbers, the siliconer and so forth.
We were extremely happy with the quality of the work. It is solid craftsmanship that is made to last. Steven consistently gave us ideas where he thought there may be better way to do something. And if a product was not up to standard, he was very keen to get the problem sorted so that a high-quality result could be maintained.
Steven is a man of his word. If he says he is going to do something … he will.
Steven is very trustworthy. We went overseas during the build, having sorted what we anticipated would need to be done. And the issues that did arrive while we were absent Steven solved independently of us. We trusted his decisions.
We highly recommend Steven as a quality builder for a difficult renovation. We would have Steven build for us again with pleasure.

Kind regards. Margaret

I would have no hesitation in recommending St Andrews for any renovation work.  They did a brilliant job on our Hastings Street apartment. They were extremely collaborative and added value the whole way – from the initial designs to materials to the smallest details – providing advice and recommendations that had a really positive impact on the quality of the final product. In spite of doing the job during the Covid-19 crisis, and the added complication of us living overseas, we were kept completely up to date with the progress, so were given visibility and confidence throughout. And we finished on time and on budget, which was a big plus for us.  We’re delighted with the job and the contribution from the St Andrews team.

We engaged Steve from St Andrews Constructions to extend and renovate our house in Noosa Waters. It was a complex build with a second story addition plus the installation of a lift. The construction commenced then Covid hit and we had no way of visiting the site because of closed interstate borders. To our delight when we were finally able to visit on the completion of works Steven had done a magnificent job. We could not imagine if we had shoddy workmanship when we could not inspect the works progress. Steve is easy to work with and expects the highest standard from his talented tradespeople
We absolutely recommend him.

Hi Steve,

The end product is better than what I had envisaged. You were able to listen to my ideas on what I wanted and make them a reality with more attention to the final finish than I had expected

One of the fears of most people who renovate is what the hidden costs may be once unknown aspects of the existing building come to light during the construction. You were ahead of the game in predicting what some of those issues could be and quick to inform me of what the implications could be once they were confirmed. This took a lot of stress out of the realisation of the project as, like most people, we were on a tight budget.

From the outset you informed me that one of your expectations in managing construction was constant and honest communication between the builder and the client. To this end you phoned me regularly to inform me of what was happening and what would happen next. Also, all adjustments or changes to the initial design and selection of hardwares, tiles, paint colours etc. were discussed before being executed.
Another aspect of such projects that can cause stress for clients is not knowing how the costs of the project are going and what further costs might occur due to changes etc. however I found that all official communications regarding costs and compliance matters were handled expertly and professionally.

So, Steve, I couldn’t be happier with the project that you realised for me. It is proving to be very comfortable and practical and a great improvement to the twenty-five year old house. Many thanks for your own gentle, knowledgeable and professional competency and management of this project. I am most grateful.

St Andrews Constructions were engaged to completely renovate our Las Rias apartment in Noosa.  As we live interstate, this required a much higher reliance on the builder and trust in the project management process.  We were totally satisfied with the entire project, it was completed in time, within budget and to the highest standards.  We were most impressed with Steven’s attention to detail, practical solutions and ethical approach.  The work was also managed within restricted working hours to allow for the normal functioning of adjoining apartments.  During construction we were kept fully informed of the progress with regular emails, phone conversations and photographs.  In addition, Steven worked collaboratively with an interior designer and all furniture and soft furnishings were also completed within the allocated time frame.  We would thoroughly recommend the services of St Andrews Constructions.
