"It is with pleasure that I write this note to recommend the services of Andrew Payton.My family and I got to know and fully appreciate Andrew’s many talents as a builder during our 10-month engagement with him on a project to redesign and rebuild our 120 year old, three bedroom garden apartment in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. He was recommended to me by a well-known Sydney architectural and building designer who oversaw all aspects of the project and who had previously worked with Andrew.Throughout the project, Andrew showed immense reliability, professionalism and skill. He made sure that he was fully involved in every aspect of the work and he always approached the job with an enthusiasm, which instilled confidence in the outcome during the many unexpected challenges that this particularly demanding project threw up.In fact, Andrew’s commitment to delivering a first class result went well beyond our expectations. He was always available to explain and account for work under his direction, which included, plumbing, electrics, painting and construction. Using his highly developed attention to detail, Andrew was also often able to devise creative solutions to problems encountered along the way.Apart from the site work, Andrew was able to provide us with extremely transparent and detailed financial details, which allowed us to know literally where every dollar was being spent, and for what reason. They were delivered in a very regular and timely manner, which made sure that there were no surprises or unexpected price “blow outs” along the way, and this certainly contributed to smooth execution of the project.Finally, a major contributor to our appreciation of Andrew is that he’s a damn good bloke. While dealing with some highly testing construction issues, which we encountered, he remained totally unflappable and focused on resolving problems with a minimum of fuss. We have remained in touch with Andrew since the work has been completed and he has been always ready to assist with small issues, which have arisen.In conclusion, Andrew’s efforts made a major contribution to the achievement of a fantastic transformation of our property. I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew to anyone who is seekinga hard-working, dedicated and thoughtful professional who is developing what will be a highly successful construction business, based on these talents."
