Testimonials



We engaged Sydney Select Constructions to undertake extensive renovations on our terrace house in Glebe. After interviewing several builders, Sydney Select Constructions were the clear stand out choice.

Steve Hancock was extremely professional, approaching the tender process with efficiency and sincerity. It was refreshing to have a building company call back promptly and provide the appropriate documentation quickly, without spending time having to chase information. We were extremely pleased to have a complete schedule of works, a clear timetable for the ongoing progress payments and a good understanding of what was going to occur during our renovation.

Dave Power managed the construction process with a fantastic team of builders, carpenters and sub-contractors. The outstanding quality of the bespoke joinery in our kitchen and laundry deserves a special mention.

The scheduled site meetings provided a regular opportunity to ask questions and follow up on the details of the building process. This communication eased the stress usually associated with renovating.

The result is a spectacular renovation, completed to the highest standard. Sydney Select Constructions helped us bring our vision to reality. Steve and Dave went above and beyond to ensure we were more than happy with the final result. We would not hesitate to recommend them to any potential clients and are looking forward to working with them on our next project. We are very fortunate to have found a team of builders who have honesty, integrity and a dedication to quality that is a rare commodity in the building industry.

It was a pleasure dealing with Sydney Select Construction. Everything was orderly, in time, and completed with the best of attention. Nothing was too difficult for Dave, Steve and the team of well experienced tradesmen and workers.

Also, the time limits and deadlines were all met. This was all done with a lot of goodwill and good humour as well!

We would definitely hire SSC in a flash for any renovation need.

Elisa and I had started thinking about our renovation in Concord when we found out our 2nd Bub was on the way. We spent hours and hours trying to work out the best way to extend the home cost effectively that would still achieve the space we needed. It wasn't until we sat down with Sydney Select Constructions that it all came together perfectly.

Steve helped us through the planning stage from start to finish, Working with us on concepts and variations. He gave an understanding of what we could structurally achieve that allowed us to then discuss the ideas with our real estate agent to come up with the most conducive layout for us and the rest of the market if we decided to sell in the future. The experience during the planning stage was brilliant. We were made to feel like premium clients and learnt a huge amount about the build due to the system that Sydney Select Constructions use to take their clients through each step of the process from the very start.

Dave and the team took care of the actual construction and this was just as smooth as the planning. We actually ENJOYED the process. Site meetings were scheduled regularly and we were updated every step of the way on what was going on and when we could expect completion of each stage. We were time critical as we were expecting El to deliver our 2nd baby by a fairly close date. Sydney Select Constructions never looked like missing the date, their painters worked through Christmas and New Years to get us moved in, in time.

The result is our beautiful family home, with open plan living, kitchen, dining that opens out to our large spotted gum deck. The trophy 'raked ceiling' has added huge value to the home. We now feel like we got gifted. I have referred a large number of our friends and family to Sydney Select Constructions and I feel as though we'd be crazy to deal with anyone else ever again.

Thanks for all the help and support throughout the process. You've made a young family from Sydney very happy.

I bought my house in May 2014. When I met with Steve Hancock from Sydney Select Constructions in December 2014, I already had worked through my design and council approvals. At the same time I interviewed Sydney Select Constructions, I also interviewed two other builders. It was important for me to work with a team that was similar in mind set and approach to me, but at the same time is able to guide me through the entire process of building a home. I needed a team that would not only mange the project but also manage me in the process. Steve and Dave were able to do exactly that. They meet my design dreams, while at the same time cautioning me on what should be done versus what could be done. In a project of this size, things don’t always go to plan and adjustments need to be made. When a problem came up, I was impressed with the ability of Dave and his team to quickly come up with solutions and move the project forward. I was able to trust Dave and his team and Steve was also there along the way to make sure what I was promised in the beginning was delivered.

Sydney Select Constructions turned my house into a home – and I absolutely love it. The quality of the work is excellent from top to bottom. I was really impressed with the attention to detail the team showed and their desire to get the job done properly and on time (moved back in May 2015). I have no hesitation in recommending Steve, Dave and all of the Sydney Select Constructions Team.

Sydney Select Constructions have just completed a renovation of the back of our 100 year old terrace in Stanmore. Throughout the process from tendering to handover, Steve, Dave, and the staff of Sydney Select were extremely professional with excellent communication between client and builders.
Throughout the build Dave and his staff, particularly Ben and Josh, were great to work with. They were reliable, professional, highly skilled and committed to the job. They promptly dealt with any concerns we had and were accommodating of any changes we made along the way.

We would highly recommend Sydney Select Constructions to any prospective clients.

We are pleased to provide a reference on behalf of Sydney Select Construction. In May 2013 we engaged Sydney Select Constructions to u undertake alterations and improvements to our house internally and externally. Whilst Sydney Select Constructions were extremely competitive in pricing we also found that they were east to deal with and provided expert advice.

Sydney Select Constructions undertook all activities meticulously and diligently and produced a result that we are truly happy with. We have found both Steve and Dan from Sydney Select Constructions a pleasure to deal with and this made our renovations a lot more rewarding. We have personally recommended Sydney Select Constructions to our friends and we would not do so without having utmost confidence that they will deliver a successful project.

My wife and I built an extension to our existing home using Sydney Select Constructions as the builder. Our experience with Steve, Dave & the back office has been fantastic, they are friendly and are able to answer every question when it best suits you. As this was our first major contact with a builder we've had many questions - all of them have been addressed in a very friendly and competent way. Extras were agreed on and signed off before the work on the extras commenced. Delays were due to changes in legislation and rather complicated certifiers, Steve & Dave helped us out here as well. The quality of the work is very good and was within the agreed and signed budgets.

Overall - We were lucky that Steve and Dave were recommended to us and we are very thankful for the relatively easy and uncomplicated building experience. It has been a fantastic journey for us and our friends and neighbours have been impressed with the results. The building team went the extra mile and send flowers to my wife after we received the good news. I can absolutely recommend Steve and Dave from Sydney Select Constructions to any one who wants a quality builder that comes along with the positive experience of helpful understanding staff who genuinely care about their customers.

We contacted Sydney Select Constructions to initially give us a quote to refit out our offices. We also contacted 4 other builders. 3 builder's got back to us, eventually, one didn't bother and Sydney Select Constructions were the only ones to get back to us right away. I had a good feeling that if their customer service was good, their work should be excellent. I wasn't wrong. Their quote, whilst only slightly higher than other quotes, covered everything I needed. Steve gave me fantastic advice and even opened my eyes to other ideas I hadn't even thought about! After my first meeting, receiving the quote and then a second meeting, there was no doubt in my mind Sydney Select Constructions would do the work for me. I felt confidence in their abilities and the end result was everything I expected and more.

Their tradesmen were always on time, polite, professional and kept the offices clean at all times while they worked. Steve kept in constant communication with me, giving regular updates which was important to me. The best part was they finished the job one week ahead of time. I highly recommend their services. It's refreshing to see builders that go the extra distance for you, really care about the finer details and keep you in the loop from start to finish. Thanks Steve and Dave, I'm a very happy customer!

To Steve and Dave,

I would like to thank you for recently completing a high quality renovation on my property. My bathroom, living and outdoor areas look amazing! You have transformed my whole home into a functional and modern space.

Looking back to our initial consultation, you have taken my requirements and added your own creative and practical solutions which have exceeded my expectations. I was surprised how smoothly the whole project ran and was extremely happy it was completed ahead of schedule and within budget. It is great to find a construction company which genuinely has pride in their work and the integrity to complete a good job at a good price. I will definitely be using you for my next project!

Thanks again, Nicholas


Hi Steve,

As discussed I feel that through my dealings with you from the very beginning there has been nothing but professionalism. From the first contact; Anna was very courteous and followed through with email detailing your visit and from the first site inspection your advise regarding the renovations and input was appreciated and knowledgable. You also kept me informed regarding getting the quotation and when you emailed me the quote per request came back and sat down with my husband and I to explain and was very thorough. We were both very impressed with all the considerations that went into the proposal as well as the systems and processes in place to make it happen and run efficiently. We were left with confidence that our renovations to the smallest detail would be taken care of - once again I thank you for taking the time to come out and provide us with how the project would be run as this gave us confidence that it would be done properly.

Thanks again and my dealings with you have been nothing short of professional and personable.

Regards,
Leticia Yuen
