I had Josh from Adaptive Building Pty. Ltd.,build a large deck. I thought the project would be long and involved. Josh took charge and he and his crew had it built in a professional and effective manner in record time with minimal fuss. The project was master built at very reasonable rates. The guys were prompt and reliable , great to deal with and obliging in every way I would not hesitate to recommend him and his crew for any project large or small.

In 2011 Adaptive Building did some work at our home in Pymble and we were very happy with the quality of the construction. They replaced a deck and pergola and converted our old garage into a rumpus room with a  bifold door and landing.

Quality work Our previous deck was built by a different builder 10 years ago and it was cheap. It looked tacky and it fell apart. This new deck built by Adaptive was more expensive but the quality is completely different. They used 3 times the support post and they were painted so they would not rot like the last deck. Josh added a protective rubber strips before laying the hard wood decking with stainless steel decking screws. The skilled team used care to build the new deck and it looks a million dollars.

Garden friendly  Our established garden is an asset to the property and we did not want it destroyed during the construction. The boys were extremely careful of the garden. Josh and his team managed the impossible and our garden was magnificent days, not years, after construction. They replaced the 10m x3m pergola for a 40 year old grape vine without any damage. The surrounding 2m hedges and garden beds were undisturbed.

Sound Advice My husband and I are inexperienced and found the process of renovating a bit daunting. Josh from Adaptive Building asked all the right questions and really listened to what we wanted. Josh is sensitive to the aesthetic of an older building and is skilled at solving all the design and technical problems that come with mixing the old with the new. He could give very general ideas of the costs of different options and guided us to make good decisions so we got the best result for our money.

Neat and Courteous The team at Adaptive were completely different than the usual rough, sexist tradies that have invaded our home and trashed our garden in the past. In contrast Josh and his team were neat and courteous at all times. When I changed my mind several times they were cheerful and accommodating. They were considerate and didn’t trample the garden or our home and didn’t use offensive language.

Punctual They turn up on time!

Contact We were impressed with Adaptive Building and would happily recommend them to you.
