“Graham was referred to us by another well respected interior design company. We found his work to be very professional and his attitude very easy to work with. Even with extra variation work, Graham and his team were able to complete the work on time as originally planned. Providing cost breakdowns and regular updates via phone and email were also helpful for our planning. We would not hesitate to recommend Graham for future clients.”

“Graham organised and managed the refurbishment of the toilets and kitchen in the basement College’s heritage listed building in Surry Hills. The toilets were done first, followed a couple of weeks later by the kitchen, to fit in with prior commitments. Both jobs were completed just within the estimated time and at close to expected cost, and the work arranged to minimise disruption to normal activities. All of the many trades people used were highly skilled and cooperative, and the end result is very satisfactory. Graham is to be commended for his management efforts.”



“We were referred to Graham by our plumbers who recommend him to us as they had worked with him on several projects and were very happy with his work.
We engaged Graham as soon as we met him as we found his knowledge of renovating old apartments and keeping the Art Deco look, but modernising, inspiring.
Between us we drew up the plans and he started at a time convenient to us both.
We lived around the demolition of our flat and found him to be agreeable to any changes we made as we went.
The workmanship was very professional and result was a complete rejuvenation of our flat.
We have recommended Graham for other projects and will be engaging Graham for a roof renovation at the apartment block of which we live.”

“Graham Fairbairn is the perfect builder. He is meticulous, prompt and unfailing polite. He had many stakeholders on my project including a bunch of cranky residents. But his politeness and preparedness to help and listen won over the crankiest of the tenants. But perhaps more importantly his workmanship was faultless. He also continued to manage any small issues way beyond the end date of the project. Needless to say it was a joy to have him on the job and I wouldn’t use anyone else.”

“Graham built my house in Annandale in 20013. The building was a run-down two story terrace, built in 1886, that had significant structural challenges. Graham and his team executed a structurally complicated build in a tight working area, which involved adding a third story, demolishing and rebuilding the back half of the structure, creating an atrium and tying the whole building together. the end result was a perfect living space. The front of the house was restored with many of its original features, and the back half was a modern steel, glass and concrete structure that maximised light and airflow.

Graham completed the house on time and on budget, which was an outstanding effort given its complexity. He and his team were extremely professional and easy to deal with. In my opinion that standard of finish was outstanding.

With my expanding family, with some regret, we left the terrace in 2012. the house we purchased was quite different – a rambling one story house in Marrickville. That house required some renovation work at the time we moved in. We again used Graham, and again, his standard of finish was excellent, and the work was done on time and on budget.

I cannot recommend Graham highly enough.”
