"I knew that it was not going to be an easy renovation, but thanks to the team, it was amazing to see a tired, old dilapidated house transformed like Cinderella for the ball. The extensive renovation involved removing the old cladding, then recovering in weatherboards, adding an extensive deck, virtually gutting the inside to form new spaces, together with the formation of a new kitchen and bathroom. MTD Build provided a thoroughly professional service, and co-ordinated the sub trades which meant an easy flow from job to job, ensuring a minimum of fuss."

Mark Dawson was always willing to listen to my ideas and was happy to accept any changes (often providing solutions to enhance the design). It was refreshing to hear him say "There is no problem we can't solve" when any tricky situations arose - and solve them they did, to the satisfaction of all. His project manager also was always available to make sure that things ran smoothly. Excellent work ethics and motivation were shown by the young, enthusiastic and hardworking building team; who left the site clean and tidy at the end of each day. They were honest and respectful in their manner, towards the client and their team. Recommended by Mark was Kenneth Sin, an engaging, very professional architect. He proved to be excellent at taking my ideas and providing a design that met my objectives. Also recommended were "L'Artisan Paint-Deco" painters who provided an excellent finish both inside and out, to complement the new building and tie it in with the old existing brickwork to give all a fresh new look. All accessories, whiteware and design items were sourced to a theme by "Chic Conceptions". Thanks to MTD the Code of Compliance went through with a minimum of fuss, and on time. I would certainly recommend MTD Build for any renovation or building work.
