“Brent and the team delivered our build to a very high level of quality and attention to detail”
Damon and Oddette, Rozelle
Two Storey Addition
“The build came in on time and on budget. The project team, lead by a dedicated foreman, could not have been more professional, friendly and accommodating, as well as considerate to our neighbours. I would not hesitate to recommend the Direct Building team to anyone. We were extremely pleased with the outcome our first major renovation, and if we do another I would certainly call Brent again.”
“On time, within budget – we loved Brent’s down to earth approach”
Tony and Susanne
Blakehurst Bathroom Renovation
“We wanted to let others know how happy we are with the renovation job Direct Building Solutions completed for us.
From the first meeting, we felt comfortable with you, and you proved that during the course of activities. Unforeseen problems, both with Council and suppliers, were handled in a professional manner that allowed you to finish the job on time as promised - and on budget!
Our architect also expressed his appreciation of your common sense and down to earth, professional approach to providing quality workmanship. Well done, Brent. Thank you so much.”
“Spectacular results, on budget, on-time completion
Double Unit Renovation
“Brent Tamati and his team undertook two renovation jobs on my behalf, one in 2013 and one in 2014. Each job required gutting an old unit and then construction and refurbishment work. The finished projects are spectacular.
Brent and his team were professional and on budget. One of the most impressive things was that when there were a few problems, Brent sorted them out quickly, efficiently and professionally. This included Brent dealing with other residents’ concerns within the strata complex in a way that was most impressive. Often this took place outside of normal business hours.
Further, one of the jobs involved a particularly tight timeframe. Brent promised he would finish on time and he delivered almost to the day. I have no hesitation in recommending Brent and his team to anyone who is thinking of engaging his company.”
“Brent's team of trades were incredibly professional and took the time to explain things to us.”
Ashley and Tracy
Lewisham – Two Storey Addition
“We have worked with Brent and the Direct Building Solution team over the last 12 months with the renovation of our home in Sydney's Inner West. It is the first time we have done something of this magnitude and was a little daunting with our lack of experience. We engaged Brent through a tender process run by our architect.
Our experience overall with Direct Building Solutions has been incredibly positive. There are two key things which have led us to this view. The first is the communications coming from Direct Building Solutions are excellent. Brent is prompt at responding to your questions, flexible with meeting you and proactive in keeping you in the loop of what is happening. The other key area was Brent's attitude towards the project. Each challenge we encountered saw Brent apply a 'how can I make this work' attitude as opposed to why it wouldn't work. He brought solutions and not problems to the table. A key element to keeping the project moving forward.
Brent's team of trades were incredibly professional and took the time to explain things to us. The quality of work done was of an excellent standard and we have been extremely happy moving back into our dream home.
I would not hesitate to work with Direct Building Solutions and the team again and would absolutely recommend them for high quality building needs.”
“We really appreciated the way that Brent went out of his way to make sure that everything was finished to such a high standard”
Sarah and Hamish
“We are very glad that we went with Brent and his team. They were always responsive, great at keeping us in the loop with where the build was at, and flexible in dealing with the inevitable unforeseen issues. We could not be happier with the result. We really appreciated the way that Brent went out of his way to make sure that everything was finished to such a high standard, and would thoroughly recommend him and his team to others navigating the complex world of renovating in Sydney and looking for an honest, trustworthy builder.”
“Professional team delivered great quality to bring our project to life”
James, Hurlstone Park
“We couldn’t be happier with the renovation that Direct Building Solutions completed for us. Brent and his team of professional tradesman skillfully turned a great design into an outstanding addition, which we use and enjoy every day.
We greatly appreciated the attention to detail that Brent brought to the project and the way he responded promptly to issues that arose. Brent takes great pride in the quality of his work and he took great care to ensure that all aspects of the renovation were working as they should.”
“Professional, meticulous attention to detail, work completed to high standards”
Jozef and Maria, Lindfield
“On the recommendation of our architect, we interviewed and engaged the services of Brent Tamati from Direct Building Solutions to complete a major renovation and extension to our 1920s home.
We were very impressed with Brent’s professionalism, attention to detail, and quick resolution of any matters that arose during the project. He was always available, returned phone calls promptly, was receptive to our ideas and constantly sought the most cost-effective solution.
The tradesmen on the job were experienced, meticulous and their work was finished to a high standard. We therefore have no hesitation in recommending Brent and his team for any building project.”
“I felt very confident in Brent’s tender”
Paul and Petersham
Two Storey Addition
“I felt very confident in Brent’s tender - it was detailed and then, throughout the project, I also found his pricing to be accurate also. Costs often and easily blow out on a construction project, however Brent looked ahead to upcoming stages and managed costs thoughtfully, in consultation with our architect. We have a small, inner Sydney house block and access was challenging, however Brent and Matt made it look easy. My wife and I now have a beautiful home that is deftly finished and detailed.” Paul, Petersham.”
“Brent made the renovation process exciting and rewarding”
Rob and Krista, Annandale
New Studio/Garage and House Renovation
“We can’t recommend Brent and his team highly enough. After protracted Council approvals, we were grateful to meet Brent and finally commence our studio/garage build and home renovations. We’d heard nightmare stories about renovating. Fortunately, however, Brent and his team ensured the process was exciting and rewarding.
When DBS completed our new studio/garage, we lived there while our house was renovated. It was an unexpected surprise to find how well the space worked. We really put the new space to the liveability test.
Brent was great at putting the customer first. He considered changes we wanted to make along the way and always looked for ways to say ‘yes’. He has an expert team and this was abundantly clear from the quality of the finished product.
The team even coped with our big German Shepherd puppy. Thank you to the team at Direct Building Solutions. We couldn’t be happier.”
“The friendly, flexible DBS team made the complex simple – a high quality building company”
Gerald, Glenda and Ethan
Chatswood - Renovation
“Our architect referred us to DBS. A key element in choosing DBS was that we had direct contact with Brent. From the initial contact, Brent was professional, accommodating and responsive to our requests.
DBS found appropriate ways to keep our renovations progressing, even when we faced challenges such as Council resubmissions and compliance issues. Plus, there was the added complexity that we lived in the house during renovations.
Brent maintained a high level of communication throughout the project and the DBS team was highly responsive to our questions. When they faced roadblocks or needed to make variations, we were always consulted.
Brent and his team are friendly, flexible and have a terrific sense of humour. They were great with our 4 year old. Renovations were completed to the highest standard and the process was very efficient. We have no hesitation recommending DBS to anyone considering a high quality, professional building company.”
