"A huge thanks to Mel and his team for their wonderful efforts at our place! They were a great bunch of guys to work with... they became part of the family by the end of the build. 

They were considerate, clean and tidy and did a great job. 

Mel did a great job or designing and guiding us on every decision. We love our new space!"

"One of the criteria for choosing a builder for our house extension was working according to schedule. We had to avoid the kind of sufferings by our neighbours when they rebuilt their house next door. We confirmed on Mel after we saw his works and listened to comments about how he conducted his business.


As it turned out, our project experienced no unnecessary delay throughout the next 8 months, even when we were living in during the whole period. We knew we had to count on excellent planning and great communication, which we received unequivocally from Mel and his team.


As we lived in, we had the benefit of seeing the work progress on a day-to-day basis. Having said that, we also knew we could not micromanage how work was done. The regular meetings with Mel were very useful, in which he explained a lot of his standards yet remained open-minded about our ideas. At one point, we agreed we would undertake a study on how LED lighting would go (that was back in 2011), and he accepted our suggestions. Not only that, he told us later that our study helped his parallel project save some good money and bring better quality to his clients.


We were not only satisfied with the work result he brought but found it a delight to work with Mel.


If you find the above useful, please do not hesitate to use it."

"In 2014 Olsen Construction delivered a major renovation to our house in Castle Cove. From the time we handed the property over to Mel until the work was completed we had a fabulous experience and the quality of the works was first rate. Mel provided excellent service and advice and the Olsen team was very caring and responsive. I can highly recommend Olsen Construction."
