Marvellous Murrays Bay
The family wanted more kerb appeal from their home and to have a more functional layout of their available space in the front of their house. Limited parking, and a less than ideal space for cars to back out from the driveway and onto the street, were some of the issues that the clients wanted us to fix.
Their architects redesigned the front of the house which included a new garage, office, front entry, deck, parking area, landscaping and retaining walls.
Major earthworks were required, particularly around the driveway, and included customised foundations to combat inferior ground conditions. RUSA revamped the exterior of the front of the house to make it more visually pleasing and more practical.
We watched Rusa do a great renovation in our street and were impressed with the team that was on the site who greeted most days as we walked past. I made contact with Kent and was immediately keen to have him involved due to positive and professional approach.
Our renovations encountered some geotechnical issues in the first weeks of starting but despite the appalling wet condition the team continued working. Rusa had to handle numerous changes to the plans and executed these very professionally with quality being a priority. Any variation were dealt with in the month incurred so there were no surprises at the end of the contractor which we appreciated.
Kent and his team kept us informed of all issues on site as they arose and these were resolved promptly in person or by email. There was always a great team on site which made the process less arduous as we were living in the house at the time. At no time did we feel that our personal space was overrun by builders as guys were very considerate even putting our garbage out on days we forgot to do it ourselves.
We would definitely recommend Rusa Constaruction to any prospective client looking to do a renovation or new build as the result and quality of the built was superb and done within budget.
