We would like to thank Richard and his team for the wonderful job they did renovating our home. We found the entire team at Luke Constructions to be professional, trustworthy and a pleasure to deal with. The quality of their work was exceptional and the workers were respectful, helpful and honest. Richard was readily available throughout the works and his clever design ideas on some aspects of the project were extremely beneficial. We would have no hesitation in using Luke Constructions again.
I cannot speak highly enough of Luke Constructions. The quality of the build is fantastic. I have been extremely happy with the ‘cost plus’ contract. It has allowed me freedom to change various items as the build has progressed and the invoices are concise and transparent. Richard was onsite every day. He was always available, easy to contact when needed, and very mindful of the neighbours. His team is terrific and very friendly. They always welcomed me onsite and any change or suggestion was never too much problem. I could not be happier with the entire project. I also have another project which Luke Constructions will be doing for me next year.
Richard and his subcontractors were skilled and efficient in all the various trades. The garage was completed on time and well below the contract price. I found Richard’s experience meant that he could coordinate his trades and delivery trucks to complete the job with minimum interruption to our family life. I am happy to recommend Richard as a builder for all types of residential building work, especially heritage design.
In 2008 we engaged Luke Constructions on a project to rebuild the rear of our Federation house which was then in bad repair.
The project involved a conservatory-style eat-in kitchen, living room, bathroom and large deck. The brief was essentially to follow the existing design, but Richard worked with us to incorporate numerous improvements such as double glazing, privacy screening, a water tank under the deck and an outdoor bath.
We were concerned to improve the environmental sustainability of our home and Richard gave invaluable guidance in this regard. He is very patient, flexible and sensitive to client preferences, and accommodated the best of our ideas while making many excellent suggestions himself. He combines a builder's practical and technical knowledge with something of a designer's sensibility. Even after project completion, we have drawn on Richard's advice and assistance.
Richard takes pride in the quality of his work and any minor problems have been promptly attended to. He and his team are a pleasure to have around the house - reliable, considerate and absolutely trustworthy. Best of all, the project has made our home a delight to live in.
We were delighted with the work of Luke Constructions who we engaged to carryout renovations on our house and garden. The work included a new kitchen, family room, car port, rear deck and extensive earthworks with sandstone stairs and retaining walls in our back garden to create level lawns around a pool on a steeply sloping block.
The builder, Richard Luke was honest and produced work of a high standard. We found his calm approach to the build easy to work with. He was capable of working in a very cooperative manner both with us, our architects and his sub contractors.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Luke Constructions.
“The gentleman builder!”
