    "We thank and highly recommend Nick and the team at Madison Building

    Our project - 1910 Mt Eden Bungalow.

    As is the case for many renovation projects, our scope initially started as kitchen and bathroom refresh to allow for our property as a first time rental. This changed to a more significant build once we started pulling things apart and explored the potential with the team at Madison Building.

    Our property a 1910 bungalow, had all the challenges a home of this age has (it was cold, draught, had rotten timbers, doors and windows requiring replacement, a leaky roof, and nothing plumb), in short in need of a lot of TLC.

    Following initial discussions with Nick we quickly managed to pull together a project document, detailing each part of the renovation, dependencies and rough timings/costings. From the get go we were clear on what we wanted as an outcome of the renovation (initially a rental, that in future we could move into if desired) so that helped keep the focus on what was most important for us and the level of work we required. We knew we needed a builder that shared a passion for homes of this era and that they wouldn't be deterred with the work involved once they got underway.

    We worked closely with Nick and drew heavily on his expertise to stage the project and identify all the other trades that would be required. Nick made it super easy lending his expertise allowing myself to seamlessly manage and bring in other trades into our project as needed. Nick and his team were flexible enough to work on other areas while trades did their part but were always available for advise or support when these additional trades required it.

    Through any building project the prerequisite is the builders expertise in the nature of the job at hand but just as importantly (and often overlooked by many who go for the cheapest option) the team you partner with must be clear in their communication. In this area I feel Nick and his team excel and this easily sets Madison Building apart from other building companies. Right from the onset and through each stage of the project Nick's communication has been clear and concise. My expectations were clearly managed (like everyone I wanted this renovation done and done yesterday) but Nick through open and honest communication shared findings quickly and ensured surprises were kept to a minimum. We remained one step ahead allowing for a better planned project and an end result we are definitely proud of.

    Engaging the services of Madison Building was the best choice we could have made for our renovation project.

    We cant speak highly enough of Nick and his team. Madison building will no doubt be our go to for all future building works as well as a building company we will be quick to refer.

    "Nick built a pergola with roof over an existing spa pool. It was an excellent outcome and the workmanship was top class. He really took the time on what others would rush through to provide a solid and weatherproof enclosure.
    I would have no hesitation in using him again if available.

    "We undertook a big addition of a living, kitchen and dining room as well as a large hardwood deck and renovations to other parts of the house.
    Nick and his crew do not cut corners and pride themselves on producing a quality finish.
    Nick managed the job from start to finish using some of our subcontractors and some of his own.
    With stage 2 of our Reno next year we will be using his services again!

    "Nick is excellent to work with,reliable, professional, helpful, proactive and incredibly accommodating. He has all the qualities you hope for in an experienced builder and sadly seldom get. He clearly has great support from associated trades to bring projects together really efficiently. He was recommended to me by an excellent painter who has done work for me for years. I have subsequently engaged Nick on several projects, none straight forward and have been totally satisfied with how he has delivered. His billing and accounting have been clear fair and prompt. I can highly recommend him without hesitation. A rare find these days."

    "Nick did a fantastic job framing up a very difficult roof space and then went on to help complete a large hardwood deck. Very good craftsmanship, easy to interact with and always turned up on time. I have recommended him to 2 friends who were also very happy with his work."

    "Nick always had the product he required onsite before he started. He was very enthusiastic about the job he was undertaking, never taking shortcuts and always getting the job done on time. Nick always discussed design changes with me and provided multiple solutions.
    Nick was very considerate and always undertook any noisey works out of hours so he didn’t disturb the office workers.
