I contracted iConstruct to manage and construct my new home on Surfview Rd, Mona Vale. In all my dealings with Jonathan throughout the project, I found him to be very professional as well as very flexible, especially when it came to carrying out changes to original scope. Every task that was carried by Jonathan and his team was done so with great care and attention to detail resulting in a fabulous end product. After completion we had a few minor issues crop up that needed attending and Jonathan was only happy to come back and rectify in a timely manor.
I would highly recommend Jonathan and the iConstruct team to anyone looking to renovate or construct a quality home.
Having worked with Jonathan and iConstruct at Surfview Rd, Mona Vale, I found him and his team more than willing to work inline with the clients brief and the design concept, delivering the high standard of finish intended for the project.
Jonathan delivered the different construction stages on schedule and to the highest construction quality. I noticed his general diligence to construction management and his attention to detail during the build, which allowed him to deliver high quality finish. These qualities I appreciated both in him as an individual and iConstruct as a business.
Jonathan is very knowledgeable in all aspects of construction; he is trust worthy, composed and always willing to work as a team.
For these reasons I hope to continue our professional relationship into the future and give him my highest recommendation.
It is often said that home renovation can be one of the most stressful, frustrating, overwhelming and daunting experiences that one could go through in one’s lifetime. This was our first home renovation/building project and now that it is complete and we have moved back into our home, we have been left with feelings of accomplishment, pride, satisfaction and joy. A significant driver of this outcome has been the engagement of Jon and his crew from iConstruct.
From the very first meeting to review architect’s drawings and discuss scope of work, to the final handover meeting six months later, Jon was professional in his dealings, responsive, knowledgeable and most importantly prompt. He was able to listen to and understand our very specific requirements and translate this into smart solutions, but always conscious of cost impact.
Our renovation involved partial demolition of an old house, relocation of kitchen, the addition of 100sqm of living space, addition of ensuite bathroom and addition of a 6mx3m in-ground swimming pool. At every milestone or decision point of the build Jon called us onto site to check that expectations had been met or discuss decisions that needed to be made.
Jon is professional, humble, friendly, polite and trustworthy with an unambiguous communication style. A big drawcard for us was that Jon is a qualified carpenter and was actually on the tools too with his crew. He was able to interpret the architect’s specifications, vision or intent with no significant compromises, and he takes pride in his work, striving for perfection, even if it means starting over.
Jon project managed his crew and sub-contractors well and they were a pleasure to deal with. They were all professional, motivated, pragmatic and eager to get the job done right, as efficiently as possible. The experience that the teams have with each other was clearly demonstrated in their interactions, sequencing and ability to work together to achieve a good outcome.
Our renovation project was completed only nine days past the scheduled completion date, on budget (excluding our own requested variations, along the way) and to a standard and quality that met our expectations. We acknowledge that this is indeed a very rare occurrence these days, when it comes to building and renovation.
We are absolutely delighted with the final product, which is now our beautiful family home, which we love. We would happily recommend Jon to any of our family or friends who want to build or renovate, and would absolutely not hesitate at all to call on Jon again if we ever decided to embark on another building project in the future.
Jon – Thank you so much for building our home, you are always welcome to come back and see how it stands to the test of time!
We engaged iConstruct for the renovation of our Californian Bungalow, to transform a run down and neglected house into a comfortable and contemporary family home. The renovation included the re-introduction and restoration of character features, in addition to a contemporary double storey rear extension, blending old and new.
We found Jonathan easy to work with, a great communicator, who ran a well-organised construction crew, all within the constraints of conservation zoning, which at times presented unique challenges.
Jonathan, with his approach to us as homeowners, was able to make, what could have been a highly stressful time, into a relatively straightforward process. We were also appreciative of the sub-contractors that iConstruct engaged as a part of their team for our build.
We would have no hesitation in recommending iConstruct for your building needs.
We engaged iConstruct in June 2018 for our project that involved a complete strip-out and refit of the existing ground level, a new three bedroom & two bathroom first floor addition and external works.
Jon, and the rest of the iConstruct team, was reliable and consistently ensured that the construction and detailing was to the highest quality. iConstruct’s subcontractors were also reliable and delivered high quality work. A key requirement of our project was that once construction started the works were to be completed within a short time frame due to the impending arrival of family from overseas for the 2018/19 Christmas and New Year period. Jon was consistently on site, effectively managing the workflow and subcontractors to ensure time frames were met.
The communication between Jon and us was regular and effective, Jon always responded to our requirements and stuck to his word. We are very happy with the quality of the build that Jon delivered on our project and are loving our new house!
We happily recommend Jon and his team.
