In January 2014 we engaged the services of Paul Kevin Constructions to build an extension to our existing home. Upon meeting with Paul, both my husband and I were impressed with Paul’s communication skills, his knowledge of the building industry and his attention to detail regarding paperwork.
We found Paul to be readily available and happy to answer any questions we raised. He ensured that we were both aware of any additional changes and or costs prior to work being undertaken, and was able to complete the job on time and to an exceptional standard.
We are extremely happy with the end result, as we continue to receive compliments on the high standard of work, including compliments received from other people within the building profession.
We have no hesitation in highly recommending Paul and his company, and have no doubts about his abilities to succeed in the future.

“We have used Paul on a number of projects, which have included a number of new dwellings as well as a number of renovations. We have always found him to be professional, ethical with a strong focus on attention to detail. Equally as important, we have found his staff to be courteous, professional and very easy to get on with.
During the various projects we have engaged Paul for, we have been particularly impressed with his readiness and innovation around solving problems when they arise. I rate this as a strong attribute for whether it is a new project or a renovation often things do not go to plan.
I have used other contractors in the past but always go back to Paul and his team because as a company they work to the points of difference I highlighted above.”
We originally chose PK Constructions as our preferred choice having tendered out to four different builders – each of whom had come highly recommended. Paul Fish made an impression on us from the beginning; he identified some finer details and issues in our project not picked up by any of the other three companies and, apart from being competitive and transparent in pricing, Paul was punctual, professional and filled us with confidence.
Throughout the entire period of our building project, Paul and his team were highly professional and maintained the highest standards of workmanship and attention to detail. Any issues that arose in the building process were addressed honestly, fairly and quickly. Paul and his team were solution-focussed – particularly when dealing with some significant errors made by our architect. Communication through all stages of the project was brilliant.
We are absolutely delighted with the end product and wouldn’t hesitate recommending PK Constructions for any project, large or small.

In 2012, we won the job of joining two identical houses into one large accommodation. The houses were 1970s brick veneer, 3 bedroom homes, built on two subdivided blocks and they were mirror images of each other.
The client had two young children and were living in one of the houses. When their father became widowed and the house next door came on the market, he bought it with the idea of moving in next door. However, it soon became apparent that it was preferable for the homes to be joined given their lifestyle and the nature of the family arrangement. The joined home would have separate living quarters for grand-dad including a kitchenette, allowing him to retain a degree of independence while enabling him to participate in the day to day activities of his grandchildren.
It was an unusual project and we’re unlikely to see the same again, but it was a fantastic chance for us to exercise some creativity during the building process while taking in the needs of this family.
“I can’t praise Paul and his team enough. To get to the point where we were ready to build, it took us 18 months to get council approval, land title consolidation and finalising architect’s designs. We thought joining a couple of houses would be easy. How wrong we were! So by the time the building started, we really had had enough! But Paul and his boys made the process very easy. They delivered on time and to budget. Where there were unexpected issues that cropped up, they focussed on the solution rather than tell us that what we wanted was not possible. Their subcontractors were also really fantastic, including the cabinetry company who were happy to incorporate custom made doors sourced from another supplier. Three months from completion, we did what our friends thought was the craziest thing – we took off on a 11 week trip overseas and left the building in Paul’s hands with oversight from a friend. The fact that it was completed to our specification by the time we returned is evidence of Paul’s professionalism. I can’t recommend them enough.”
