Elliot and Northern Beaches Constructions worked on the redevelopment of our property in Collaroy for 18 months between August 2010 and February 2012. This was a significant redevelopment project that required extensive demolition and excavation on a steep block. The house is a three storey building of double brick and concrete construction, with complete rendering inside and out. The floor plan includes four bedrooms, three bathrooms, double garage, suspended pool, and significant under house storage.

During our project, my family and I always found Elliot to be very professional, helpful, and committed to ensuring the best outcome for our build. Elliot was adept at managing the various trades on site, and assisting negotiations with multiple suppliers. As an owner‐builder, Elliot was very supportive in assisting me, and he took considerable pride in the work delivered.

As our build was a lengthy project, and in many instances required support from our neighbours, we found Elliot to be a great asset, as we were able to solve any problems arising together. Elliot was flexible, and worked in partnership with me to accommodate my requirements as the process evolved.

It was evident to us that Elliot expects high standards from his team, and hence his commitment to quality is promulgated throughout Northern Beaches Constructions. On many occasions I personally worked with the team onsite, and found their work ethic and commitment to the project admirable.

I have no hesitation in recommending Elliot and the team at Northern Beaches Constructions to any prospective clients,

We recently used Elliot’s company for some complicated/non-standard building and fencing work around our pool. At all stages, from the initial consultation process, quoting and right through to the finished product, we found Elliot and his team to be completely professional in all aspects.

Elliot provided us with several options to suit our needs, and was at all times helpful and available (he called when he said he was going to, turned up when he said he was going to and has restored our faith in tradesmen)

During construction, he and his team were punctual, friendly and courteous and completed their work in a quick, efficient and professional manner. We were impressed that they cleaned up the site after each day’s work and that they were able to complete the work to the highest standard within our limited time frame.

In closing, we would have no hesitation in recommending Elliot Ryan and his team at Northern Beaches Constructions for any type of building requirements.

Elliot was one of four builders who submitted a fixed price quote for the development that my wife Kelly and I were undertaking. All builders had come with strong recommendations. Elliot was priced competitive in this process.

My preference was to project manage and invest a lot of time into the building process so we ultimately decided to contract Elliot’s services on a cost-plus basis. Our decision to use Elliot was based on several factors. We had received a strong recommendation and he had a solid portfolio of work but just as important was his friendly manner. We developed a good rapport throughout the tender process and I felt confident Elliot was a person who I could work closely with and who was capable of delivering on our brief in a cost efficient manner.

The development included the construction of a new, architect-designed, two storey house and pool, on a site exposed to coastal elements. The build presented a number of challenges but completed within the contracted time.

Throughout the building process I found Elliot and his team to be very professional. Kelly and I made many amendments with the view of enhancing our final product. Elliot was always polite and received our requests with patience and an understanding of our vision. He contributed creatively, sensibly and productively in tackling the implications of the evolving project. At the same time he proficiently manages the various tradesmen on site, dealt with any problems promptly and efficiently and he diligently ensured the structural integrity of the building.

My overall impression of Elliot is that he is a motivated, hard-working and honest person, who takes a genuine pride in his workmanship.

Kelly and I are very satisfied with the outcome and we are pleased to offer this endorsement of Elliot’s work. To any prospective clients, we have no reservations in recommending the team from Northern Beaches Constructions.
