“Integral to the success of the construction process was the relationship with the main contractor. A negotiated contract at an early stage of the design process enabled consultation on key details and buildability issues. This early “buy-in” resulted in an exceptionally high standard on finish being achieved. We are thrilled with the end result –whilst as an architect you can design and detail everything as you wish to see it, one still has to rely on the contractor and subcontractors to carry out the works with precision and appreciation of the vision for the project. Tallwood Constructions carried the design intent through from breaking ground to final completion of our stunning home.”

“Deciding on who is going to be trusted with the task of building your dream house is a major decision. Ultimately it’s not just costs but quality of the work and reliability of the team that makes the difference, and Tallwood came highly recommended as the specialist in high end, complex residential projects. Luckily for us, they were also the best on pricing, and after we had seen a number of their recent projects, we knew we had made the right decision.

During most of the construction period, we were still living in Europe, but communications were never an issue, also thanks to our architect who was an integral part of the team. In the final delivery stages, when all comes together and deadlines loom, the Tallwood supervisor kept his cool, managed the many tradiesvery efficiently, and kept us posted on a daily basis on progress. In summary, Tallwood did an amazing job, building what is an amazing house. We have really appreciated the responsiveness of the team, the attention to detail, the open and frank communication style, and the great ownership and pride they took in delivering our dream house, even after the formal delivery and handover.”

In my opinion Tallwood is simply the most professional and client orientated construction company I have had the privilege to work with.

The project management and coordination off site is outstanding, the site delivery of highly complex architectural detail is equally as impressive.

No matter what materials are used or level of expertise required Tallwood is in the business of exceeding expectations

“It would be fair to say that our home has been built on instinct. That’s not to say that there wasn’t a lot of planning, precision, detail and hard work. There was. A lot. But first and foremost it was built on gut feel and passion. Gut feel, because from the first minute of meeting Alex and his Tallwood team our gut told us that these were the builders to use and our gut was proved right, time and time again. Passion, because their energy and genuine desire to excel in delivering this project evidently matched ours from the outset and never wavered. Layer on this gut and passion an instinctive feel for building beautiful things, a work ethic rarely seen, excellence and an ability to handle all those involved with tact and consideration without ever sacrificing the vision and you have Tallwood. The result has been a journey that, thanks to all those involved and particularly Tallwood, we have loved. More importantly, the result has been our incredible home which, as a living and breathing thing, reflects not only those within it but those that built it for us.”

“We have recently completed a large extension to our home and this is the second time we have had the pleasure of working with Tallwood.

From the initial meeting until the completion of the build, we couldn’t be happier. We found that all the staff are very pleasant and professional people to work with.

On the latest build our supervisor Brarnt was superb, and made sure that all work was completed to a very high standard. As we were based in the city and could not always attend the site on a regular basis, he made sure that we were kept up to date and fully informed every step of the way.

We can highly recommend Tallwood Constructions”.

“The collaboration between builder, designer and client all seemed to mesh seamlessly for this build. Concrete floors and concrete walls were all quite new concepts for a home when we began the build.

The extensive use of timber to keep the house cool makes for a gorgeous look! The ease of building with the Tallwood team was impressive. Always both relaxed and professional, the team took on the attention to detail that was absolutely required for this home. They managed to keep the build on time and kept us fully informed of our homes growth via progress reports”


“Tallwoods and the team under Brarnt have now completed the work at my property and I would like to say how impressed we are with Brarnt, who was very professional, handled his team in a very sensible and mature manner and obviously is well respected by them all, plus he is a very hard and conscious worker.

He is a fine young man.

Tallwoods reputation goes a long way in this household and I will always recommend them and their team.”
