    "We used Evolution for a complete demolition and rebuild of our Freemans Bay villa (6 months move out etc). It is fair to say that choosing the builder was one of the most agonising decisions of my life, as I didn't know who to trust. Evolution in the end were the most expensive (although only marginally), but I chose them as I trusted that their price wasn't contingent on chunky overruns. We had both Craig and Brent work on our project, and they were a pleasure to work with, as were their staff and sub contractors. They thought of very practical and cost effective solutions to issues we encountered, understanding we were on a tight budget, and at no point did I feel like I was getting gouged. The quality of the finish is brilliant. We have been in the home for a year now, and couldn't be happier with their product. I would not hesitate to recommend these guys for a major job (if you can get them!). Very happy to provide references or further details, if required."

    "Brent and Craig and their wonderful team built our beautiful new home and we cannot speak more highly of them. From our first meeting and throughout the process, we felt valued as clients. The communication was exceptional, the quality of work brilliant and, possibly most importantly, it was obvious that these guys really care about creating a fantastic result for their clients. We hadn't built before and the whole thing was just great. We love our new home and feel very grateful that we chose to use Evolution Builders to do the job. They aren't just builders, they're great guys who really love what they do, and they're really good at it. Obviously, we highly recommend them."

    "We appointed Craig and the team from Evolution builders as the main contractors on an addition and renovation to our Bungalow in Westmere. The build was a substantial one, and took around 6 months from start to finish. Craig was recommended to us by our Architect who had worked with Evolution before. This was a great recommendation, Craig and his team are true professionals and craftsmen, they always do what they say they are going to do and nothing is ever a problem. They make you feel like they genuinely care about your project and how important it is to you. Craig’s communication in particular is outstanding and you know where the project is at every step of the way. They are at the top of their game. They have a commitment to quality and almost an obsession with levels and how square the house is. Craig and his team have taken what was a run down old bungalow and turned it into an amazing design lead family home that oozes quality. Evolution provide great value for money and are not just “dumb contractors”, they provided invaluable suggestions during the build to enhance the project. I cannot stress how important this is, I have been through renovations before that end up costing substantially more due to a lack of awareness and practicality. Even after the majority of the build was over and done with, Craig and his guys were happy to come back and deal with any fiddly bits. I have 100% faith in their commitment to quality that if anything ever cropped up in the future that required remedial work it would be fixed without any hassles, this is the measure of a good builder. I would definitely use Evolution again and have recommended them to others going through the building process. Mike"

    "Evolution Builders did an outstanding job on our villa extension. We found Brent to have great vision when it came to reading the plans and offering alternatives within the council boundaries. He knew what he was doing and was a perfectionist with an eye for detail. We lived in the house while the renovations took place. Brent and his team were easy to have around and didn't seem to mind our then 2.5 year old lending them a hand!"

    "Bloody excellent. Had a room in our house re-roofed and a pile replaced. Brent and Craig were fantastic - quality of work looks sweet, they completed the work on time (including scheduling jobs around some dodgy weather), stuck to estimates, told me what was happening and why the whole way through the job, and gave me the opportunity to consider different approaches of how to get the job done. They also spotted and fixed a few little extra things. Really nice fellas too. Would definitely use them again."

    "I first contacted Craig on a sunday afternoon regarding some piles that needed replacing, He was out my house the next morning to offer a quote. The work was carried out efficiently and to an extremely high standard and good value for money. I would definately recommend them to anyone requiring building work."

    "Brent is an excellent and very competent builder. His workmanship was superb. He was also an excellent communicator and kept me informed every step of the way. He was punctual, honest and trustworthy. There was some problems with a supplier and Brent went out of his way to sort the problem out. All in all, it has been a pleasure dealing with Brent (and his apprentice) and I thoroughly recommend him."

    "Cant fault Brent or Evolution Builders. They have replaced piles, installed new cupboard doors, built a huge out door herb garden, installed a cavity sliding door system for us. Everything has been within spec, on time and to budget. I thrilled with the quality of the work - we will be using them again in the future."

    "Craig and his team saved my bacon. Craig came in on a weekend (after contacting him on a Friday afternoon) to fix problems created by a previous builder, then his team went on and completed the renovation. Finishing work is fantastic. I really can\'t speak highly enough of Craig and his team. I have had some terrible experiences with trades people over the last 5 years, but these guys are sensational. I have already referred them to a friend of mine. Ian"

    "Craig and Brent (and crew) are smart guys who think about what they are going to do and then do it meticulously. They know when to say something requires more expertise or specialist advice rather than simply bluffing it, and always get the right gear for the job at hand. We have found them very straight up and a pleasure to deal with. Lynden and I have used them for two jobs and hope they will be available for the next one! "

    "We recently completed a small renovation to our turn of the century villa in Herne Bay. Brent and his team did a magnificent job. We are extremely pleased with the results and can only complement their professional approach. The guys did what they said they would do -on time and to budget, the site was left clean and tidy each day and communication was excellent. Brent made several great suggestions during the project which we adopted and which enhanced the end result. Nicky and I highly recommend Evolution Builders. Simon"

    "Craig has been our builder for years, through two renovations and the occasional nuisance job. He and his tradesmen are excellent. Honest, careful, good workmanship, tidy and timely.

    In a post-burglary emergency, Craig was most urgent and obliging.

    We highly recommend Evolution Builders."

    "I highly recommend Evolution Builders, they are a really hardworking and honest bunch of guys who did fantastic job on my Ponsonby villa. Nothing was too hard and they offered great advice for changes i decided to make during the building process. They were extremely cost conscious throughout the project, and even installed an automatic driveway gate as an extra request for a fraction of the price of specialist suppliers. Regards Blair"

They worked well with our architect and continually engaged with us on even the smallest detail they needed confirmation on.
    When they used subcontractors we were happy with the firms they chose, and they dealt with the issues we encountered speedily and well. We highly recommend Evolution and will be using them in the future on the next phase of our project."
