Client Testimonials

At all times we found AJ and his team to be exceptionally professional and easy to work with throughout the building process. After AJ completed the work and delivered us a high spec home we have returned to his company for a subsequent new build on our property. AJ was on time and reliable, he also communicated well and if any issues arose we discussed them in a timely manner and resolved to our satisfaction. We highly recommend AJL as a company to work with and as a stand out in the building industry.

Andrew, Carly and the team are absolutely awesome! We have been fortunate enough to work with AJL over the last 18 months and cannot fault their service. The whole team have been extremely professional and the level on ongoing communication and support we have received directly from Andrew and Carly has been something I’ve never experienced with other builders.
Highly recommend and will definitely be continue to use their services into the future.

Keep up the great work AJL!

Michael Harney

Andrew’s (AJ’s) building expertise was noticed early on by me as he always made the jobs he was involved with a success. This was recognised by his colleagues, trades, consultants, Regulators and clients across the board. Andrew is honest and hardworking and can in my opinion be a future industry leader for us all to learn.
