Nine months after completing our renovations we look back on the experience as both rewarding and satisfying. As for the completed project... we love it. It is a statement of who we are.
From the outset we had a fair idea of what we wanted to achieve, a practical, modernistic design that would enhance our lifestyle and deliver a certain WOW factor to our house. The problem was, how to achieve it.
Having consulted with other builders, the biggest surprise to us was that Bray Constructions, from an initial consultation, were able to capture, what we wanted and how it could be achieved better than we could. They opened the door for us to think outside the square. From that point on, both ourselves and Bray took ownership of the project. It was a partnership based on confidence and trust. Looking back on the experience, it was this relationship that was fundamental to the success of the project.
The anticipated issues that everyone who undertakes renovations expects, did not occur. Regular on site meetings and consultations on scope of works meant there were no hidden surprises. Where issues did arise, they were resolved amicably and efficiently. The workers on site were resourceful, accommodating and pro-active in highlighting any issues that needed to be addressed. The entire team had ownership of the project.
In retrospect, the question often asked is "what would you done differently if you had your time over". In our case we can honestly say.... very little. From start to finish the project ticked every box. As for the WOW factor, many of our friends (some of which are very discerning) continue to compliment us on the best renovation they have seen. A renovation that feeds your ego, just adds another box to tick.

In my opinion, they are the most outstanding builders around. They are extremely embracing of customer feedback and Lukas is brilliant. My motto is, "If you're going to do a building a project, it's Bray or no-one." They really want you to enjoy the process. I love that they are a true family business and all of them walk the talk.
I have found Bray Constructions to be really excellent and I've recommended them to everyone. The final presentation was beautiful. Everyone was very, very helpful throughout and very supportive and flexible. Lukas Bray was our contact point. He is incredibly mature for his age and does an amazing job dealing with a wide range of people and their needs.
Communication was the key with this very professional building firm, both written and verbal. They always made sure we knew who was on site and would always introduce any new tradies to us. They are people of integrity who still respond to any settling in problems which arise. In fact they come and action them the next day, which is usually very hard to get builders to do, after the work is completed and paid for.
We found Neville and his staff easy to deal with, and full of helpful suggestions. They are very professional, friendly, and very trustworthy. The house was finished early, to our amazement, and the quality was extremely good. We feel we got value for money. We have recommended them to several people and we would not build with anyone else. Their customer service was excellent and they have the customer’s best interest at heart at all times.
When I decided on some renovation work, a friend recommended me to Bray Constructions. Although the design that they came up with was more than I had initially budgeted for, I decided to fulfill my dream and go ahead. They kept me informed every step of the way and everyone involved was totally professional, polite, pleasant, attentive, obliging and they all went above and beyond what the contract said. They were all very prompt, respectful and entertaining and their customer service was excellent. I am more than happy with the end result and would recommend them highly.
I cannot fault Bray Constructions and I have recommended them to everyone. Every staff member and worker was helpful, polite, friendly, professional and very obliging. They all communicated very well and their customer service was brilliant. We wanted to build another storey and reconfigure the downstairs area. The job was completed in six months, the quality of the work was exceptional and we got real value for money.
