To Whom It May Concern,
We employed Ascent Design and Builds to carry out the renovations on our house. This included designing and building an upper storey (three bedrooms and a bathroom) and major alterations to the downstairs living areas, kitchen and laundry.
We found the Company easy to communicate with, honest in its dealings and any concerns were dealt with efficiently and fairly. All the employees were pleasant, helpful and tidy. We were particularly pleased with the role the supervisors played: interacting with us and coordinating all the tradesmen required. The hassles of council approvals and any changes in specifications were dealt with smoothly.
Overall, we were pleased with the quality of workmanship and would not hesitate to recommend Ascent Design and Build to others contemplating renovations.

'We have a 70s multi-level home in The Gap - it has a great outlook into the trees but the back decks were aging and narrow, and the front entrance was looking very tired. I had a clear idea about the sort of renovations we wanted - but hadn't found a sympathetic architect or builder. I found Bruce Parke by chance on the internet i soon found that he was somebody I could work with to develop the project. He listened to our ideas, came up with good solutions when needed - and then did all the drafting and managed approvals and personally worked on and oversaw the project. The result has exceeded our expectations - we feel like we are in a new home and finally able to enjoy our environment to its potential.'
all the best

Many thanks for building our wonderful patio roof. You took our vague ideas about what to do with our old roof and magically produced a structure that far exceeded our expectations. From the concept stage, right through to design and construction, we found your company a pleasure to deal with. You and your team dealt patiently and professionally with our queries and concerns as the roof was being constructed. We love the product you suggested we use for the roofing and look forward to having many years of outdoor living in a cool, spacious area. Dealing with your company was a good experience from start to finish.
All the best

"We would like to thank Ascent Design and Build for the outstanding renovation on our home. We are well and truly settled into our new space and wonder how on earth we managed so long without it!
Everyone at Ascent Design and Build whom we dealt with were nothing short of professional, courteous and helpful. The guys we saw on a regular basis were a pleasure to have around. With such a large renovation, one would think that there would be a huge disruption to our household and family. These guys put up with the barrage of questions, stories and entertainment from our children, every time with a smile on their faces!
The tradesmen, Jono, bob and Steve, the team of Carpenters, David the tiler, as well as the other guys who made the odd day appearances, were all fantastic!
And then there was the wonderful "fairies" who came and cleaned!!! Let me tell you, what a wonderful finish to the job!
We are happy to recommend Ascent Design and Build. Thank you."

... Really enjoyed the experience. Very pleased with the result. Will recommend to friends and family. Must make special mention of the exemplary work and service from Bruce Parke. He was simply outstanding start to finish - it was Bruce who made this experience a wonderful one and we can't praise him enough. Outstanding - and over and above the call of duty.

I just had to write and let you know how pleased we are with how everything has gone so far. In the beginning we were apprehensive about having a house renovated in another state and by a builder we didn’t know. I was really concerned about how we were going to communicate our ideas and make sure they were being carried out. But I have to say that you have provided everything we asked for and then some. You listened carefully to our ideas and produced a plan that is way beyond our expectations. You have responded to all of our e-mails even with new drawings and plan updates.
You have made this a truly wonderful experience for both of us. Also, we were glad to hear that our friends we referred to you will begin construction soon. We love the house and feel like we’ve gained a friend.
