A great experience, is how we would describe our build of a new Architectural Home, with Fleetwood Construction. Sam and Charlotte made this process very satisfying and stress free. The attention to detail was the best we have seen, with great progress info along the way, resulting in being on budget at completion. We found Sam to be thorough, on time, helpful in decision making, and very honest. We would certainly build again with Fleetwood Construction

Sam and Fleetwood Construction, built a very exciting and wonderful freestanding townhouse, for my late husband and me, in the inner city and we were very delighted with the result. The attention to design, planning and preparation was excellent. The building site was a particularly small site but with Sam’s perseverance, we had plans drawn up for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, townhouse with great living, dining and kitchen areas. The courtyard was small, though we did often entertain in the courtyard with our extended family, as it was a town base for us, it did mean it was easy to lock up and leave. The building process was smooth and efficient with very good communication at all times. Sam pays great attention to all detail and all the finishing touches were superb. We were thrilled to have a very special townhouse, would recommend Sam very highly to anyone planning to build or renovate, and look forward to another special project in the future.

Michelle and I would like to thank Sam and his team for building our fantastic new home, to say that we are happy would be a vast understatement, the craftsmanship and attention to detail shown by the team were excellent and our beautiful new home is a testament to their skills. The communication from both Sam and Charlotte was excellent, offering us guidance and advice when needed, therefore creating a stress-free building process. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sam and his team to anyone looking to build a new home.

Andrew and Michele Ring

From our first meeting with Sam and Charlotte we were impressed. We had met with 3 other companies in the search for our builder. It quickly became obvious Fleetwood Construction were at the top of their game and would be the company we would entrust to build our ‘dream home’. 

Sam was already carefully studying the Sheppard and Rout prepared plans, as we discussed the many aspects of starting an architectural build on what was a very challenging hillside. As we wanted to feel part of the project at every stage, great communication between ourselves and our builder was a critical factor. 

The welcoming and reasuring nature of Sam and Charlotte made this relationship a perfect match. Building started on time and progressed as per Sam’s scheduled timeline with site meetings every two weeks. Progress was explained and the upcoming weeks’ work was outlined in detail. We asked lots of questions and the deeper we got into the build the more impressed we became with Sam’s attention to detail when we probed for information. The Fleetwood Team was on site every day of the build, even during the latter stages where contractors were putting finishing touches to the project. 

The ‘boys’ were awesome and they always made us feel welcome when we simply couldn’t stay away. The Team displayed obvious pride in their workmanship, they kept the site tidy and were always happy to discuss where they were at and what was coming up next. It was obvious that they worked hard and at the same time enjoyed what they were doing. The house was completed on time and with only a few small variations along the way. This we credit to Sam’s meticulous planning prior to starting the project. Their invoicing, communication and documentation was top notch. 

It gave us much pleasure when we learned that Sam and Charlotte had been awarded a Gold Reserve for our house at the Master Builders House of the Year 2019 Awards as a reward for their excellent standard of workmanship. We give Fleetwood Construction our highest recommendation as a most professional and competent company and we thank Sam, Charlotte and the Fleetwood Team for having made the creation of our dream house such a great experience.

Olé & Karen

Our new home, built by Fleetwood Construction, is our pride and joy. We are extremely happy with the house and we are so grateful to Sam and Charlotte for their endless care and consideration in the construction of it. Such a high standard of craftsmanship and attention to detail, the quality of work is the best. Henry and Daniel, and the rest of the Fleetwood team were a delight to have on site. The house was built with no fuss, no disagreements, and no major misunderstandings. Sam was very flexible. He said before he got the contract, and after he quoted, "I've already built this house in my mind". He then set about doing that. We would thoroughly recommend Fleetwood Construction to any prospective clients, they won't disappoint.

Tony and Jan Raper

We have really enjoyed working with Sam and Charlotte on a number of our projects, their team is always approachable, polite and tidy! Their tender process was very realistic and accurate, they were able to work with us to solve any problems that inevitably arise when completing a big renovation, together we were able to achieve our objectives and they helped us to work within our budget and timeframes. It was extremely beneficial having Sam identify areas where we could make small changes to achieve a better result or areas where we could save, always setting realistic expectations. Honest and reliable with exceptional workmanship, Fleetwood Construction helped to make our house a home and we cannot recommend them highly enough.

Andrew & Rachael Wyllie

We are delighted with our light filled, warm new home built for us by Fleetwood Construction, and the way the build was conducted by Sam, Charlotte and the Fleetwood team.

Building a house was a new experience for us and we were apprehensive about the process and what was involved. We needn’t have worried.

From the start Sam and Charlotte were a pleasure to deal with. We had excellent communication and regular meetings with Sam throughout the build which meant we were always up to speed with progress and any issues that came up. Sam also provided us with a useful timeline which meant that we knew well in advance when we needed to make key decisions about interior details. As a result, we never felt pressured.

Throughout the build we also really appreciated Sam’s calm and measured approach including when he was solving any problems that arose. Sam’s understanding of all elements of the build and his attention to detail was excellent, as was his oversight of the work and the subcontractors. The invoices sent by Charlotte were clear and accurate and acknowledgement of our progress payments was always prompt.

The Fleetwood builders on site were also great to get on with. Steve and the others in the team always made us feel welcome when we went on site and took time to answer our questions. Their workmanship was first class and this is reflected in the quality of the finish they achieved. We also appreciated the way the site was kept tidy and how the team tried to minimise disruption to our neighbours.

We are very grateful to Sam, Charlotte and the Fleetwood team for building us a beautiful house that we thoroughly enjoy and for making it such a positive experience. We highly recommend them.
