Design + Construct

If you want everything done at the one place, then we can certainly help – this is our speciality.

If you are not using our full design service, you may have already been to see a great architect or design and at the stage where you need to know how much your design will cost. This is where we will take your plans and talk through our selection checklists to make sure we have covered everything that you would like included in your home. We even use our virtual construction software to model your home in 3D.

Ecstatic with the end result

Davies Design & Construction was recommended to us by our neighbour who told us that Luke Davies is "a good operator" and will build your house to perfection. This was proved to be right on both fronts. We had already engaged 6ty Architects from Launceston to design our house and we were looking for a good quality builder who would bring the design to fruition. The house design involved some tricky elements, so we needed a builder who was dynamic, smart and able to use latest building techniques. In Davies Design & Construction we got this and much more. We had heard that all house builds are stressful and to expect problems along the way. This was our first house build, so we were nervous about how it would go. Luckily, Davies Design & Construction was exactly the right fit for us and, amazingly, there were none of the problems we were warned about. The build process went smoothly and we could not be more happy with how our house was built and the end product. Luke Davies and his team were at all times professional, polite, responsive, tidy and well organised. Just as importantly, they used only the best tradies. The whole team worked long hours and tirelessly to get the house built on time. It was fantastic to deal with a builder who is all about solutions, not problems. No issue was too big or too small to deal with and this is what made the build process easy and trouble free. Davies Design & Construction helped us with all of our decisions, including going out of their way to assist in sourcing different products for us to consider. Everything was carefully thought through and executed with precision. Since we have moved into the house, we have gained an appreciation for how well the house is built. Everything is to the highest standard and better than we expected. Also, the collaboration between Davies Design & Construction and the architects was seamless, they worked so well as a team. We are ecstatic with the end result and will always be grateful to Davies Design & Construction for giving us our beautiful new home.

Exceptional quality

At no time were we made feel like our indecisive manners were wasting Luke's time but found he was more than happy to make recommendations whilst still listening to our thoughts and needs. Plenty of time was spent on the actual block discussing the location of both the shed and house with the shed being erected prior to the house. At all times, we were well informed of when sub-contractors were coming and their work schedule which was greatly appreciated. I must say, all of Luke's employees were very conscientious and took great pride in their work and the end result. Furthermore, the quality of the work undertaken has been exceptional and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services at all and would be more than happy to speak to any future clients in person if so desired. Congratulations Luke and your team - a job well done and thank you.

Exceeded our expectations

Luke built us a home that exceeded our expectations. It is obvious he is a competent and capable builder. Our building experience was enjoyable, stress-free and amicable with difficulties resolved without disruption. Luke was careful and regular in his billings which were clearly set out, with minimal variations. Where subcontractors failed to meet Luke’s high standards, he was unrelenting in his request they return to rectify defects promptly. In summary, we have a modern home built to an exceptional high standard with the latest up to date appliances and fittings. In a cold and wet surround our home is a sanctuary of warmth and comfort fitting snuggly into the beauty of the setting with commanding and wide views of the lake and countryside.

Attention to detail exceeded our expectations

Luke consulted with us regularly with phone calls and photos. Most importantly, we completely trusted him and his team and felt confident that any decisions that were made regarding the build were made in our best interests. The Davies Construction team were always professional on site and they clearly took pride in their work. Their professionalism and friendliness and was well noticed in the Hawley Beach area and we often received comments from neighbours and strangers about their exceptional behavior. The attention to detail exceeded our expectations. If subcontractors did not quite get their part of the job done to the highest standard, Luke made sure that they fixed the issue. As a result, every aspect of our house was completed to perfection. The entire building process was stress free and enjoyable due to the passionate, hardworking team at Davies Construction.

Efficient, professional and reliable

Luke was recommended to us. We had Luke look at our plans and after comparing quotes with other builders, Luke‘s price was right. He started construction in November, completing in July. Barrington weather I felt may be a challenge, but for Luke and his team it didn’t seem to bother them. Luke was swift in communications with us when difficulties occurred. We also valued his suggestions. He was efficient, professional and reliable. Luke is respected by his subcontractors, when their work wasn’t up to scratch Luke didn’t hesitate to have them return to fix the problem. We are thrilled with the finished product and know it has been constructed to a high standard. Luke and his enthusiastic team bought our dreams into reality. I would highly recommend Luke again or have him back in the future.
