Project: Studio Addition

“Professional team delivered great quality to bring our project to life”

We couldn’t be happier with the renovation that Direct Building Solutions completed for us. Brent and his team of professional tradesman skillfully turned a great design into an outstanding addition, which we use and enjoy every day.

We greatly appreciated the attention to detail that Brent brought to the project and the way he responded promptly to issues that arose.

Brent takes great pride in the quality of his work and he took great care to ensure that all aspects of the renovation were working as they should.

Project: Renovation (Addition)

“Professional, meticulous attention to detail, work completed to high standards”

On the recommendation of our architect, we interviewed and engaged the services of Brent Tamati from Direct Building Solutions to complete a major renovation and extension to our 1920s home.

We were very impressed with Brent’s professionalism, attention to detail, and quick resolution of any matters that arose during the project. He was always available, returned phone calls promptly, was receptive to our ideas and constantly sought the most cost-effective solution.

The tradesmen on the job were experienced, meticulous and their work was finished to a high standard. We therefore have no hesitation in recommending Brent and his team for any building project.

Project: Bathroom Renovation

“On time, within budget – we loved Brent’s down to earth approach”

We wanted to let others know how happy we are with the renovation job Direct Building Solutions completed for us.

From the first meeting, we felt comfortable with you, and you proved that during the course of activities. Unforeseen problems, both with Council and suppliers, were handled in a professional manner that allowed you to finish the job on time as promised – and on budget!

Our architect also expressed his appreciation of your common sense and down to earth, professional approach to providing quality workmanship. Well done, Brent. Thank you so much.

Project: Double Unit Renovation

Spectacular results, on budget, on-time completion”

Brent Tamati and his team undertook two renovation jobs on my behalf, one in 2013 and one in 2014.  Each job required gutting an old unit and then construction and refurbishment work.  The finished projects are spectacular. 

Brent and his team were professional and on budget. One of the most impressive things was that when there were a few problems, Brent sorted them out quickly, efficiently and professionally.  This included Brent dealing with other residents’ concerns within the strata complex in a way that was most impressive. Often this took place outside of normal business hours. 

Further, one of the jobs involved a particularly tight timeframe. Brent promised he would finish on time and he delivered almost to the day.

I have no hesitation in recommending Brent and his team to anyone who is thinking of engaging his company.

Project: Renovation

“The friendly, flexible DBS team made the complex simple – a high quality building company”

Our architect referred us to DBS. A key element in choosing DBS was that we had direct contact with Brent. From the initial contact, Brent was professional, accommodating and responsive to our requests.

DBS found appropriate ways to keep our renovations progressing, even when we faced challenges such as Council resubmissions and compliance issues. Plus, there was the added complexity that we lived in the house during renovations.

Brent maintained a high level of communication throughout the project and the DBS team was highly responsive to our questions. When they faced roadblocks or needed to make variations, we were always consulted.

Brent and his team are friendly, flexible and have a terrific sense of humour. They were great with our 4 year old.

Renovations were completed to the highest standard and the process was very efficient.

We have no hesitation recommending DBS to anyone considering a high quality, professional building company.

Project: New Studio / Garage & House Renovation

“Brent made the renovation process exciting and rewarding”

We can’t recommend Brent and his team highly enough.After protracted Council approvals, we were grateful to meet Brent and finally commence our studio/garage build and home renovations.

We’d heard nightmare stories about renovating. Fortunately, however, Brent and his team ensured the process was exciting and rewarding.

When DBS completed our new studio/garage, we lived there while our house was renovated. It was an unexpected surprise to find how well the space worked. We really put the new space to the liveability test.

Brent was great at putting the customer first.  He considered changes we wanted to make along the way and always looked for ways to say ‘yes’.

He has an expert team and this was abundantly clear from the quality of the finished product. The team even coped with our big German Shepherd puppy.

Thank you to the team at Direct Building Solutions. We couldn’t be happier.

 Project : Award-winning cottage renovation

“Brent, Matt and the rest of the team from Direct Building Solutions were all fantastic – reliable, hard-working and friendly”

They finished a major renovation on our house in the tight time frame we gave them and on budget.  We love the result!

Brent was always available and helpful if we had questions, and worked well with our architect when things needed adjusting along the way.  It was a real pleasure having him do this project for us and we’d recommend him highly to anyone.
