“The quality of workmanship is outstanding. The pride taken by the tradesmen. The focus on the end result and ensuring that we enjoyed the process. The desire to want to meet all of our expectations (were the main strengths).”

Trudie H. Collaroy

“Rebecca and Rob hired a team of builders from James Hurt Building & Construction, and they really went above and beyond the call of duty. ‘They hand-cut the cedar shingles for the house,’ Rebecca says, ‘and did a lot of technical carpentry, restoring and reusing period materials from elsewhere.’

“James is at the project every day until it is finished. You are considerate of your customers by keeping the site clean, minimising disruption to both owners of the property you are working on and their neighbours. James’ attitude is reflected in his employees who also have a good attitude. You are reliable and obviously take pride in your work.”

Gordon S. Seaforth

“There are many strengths. The quality of the work done. The communication is better than most tradesmen. James does not make ‘executive decisions’. He picks up the phone and asks when he is not sure of something. This is very important to us. Most tradesmen don’t do this. Decisions made for us without our knowledge is not what we want and a sure fire way of us not using that person again.

They are also very neat and clean when they work. His professional attitude and enthusiasm to do a great job is welcome and refreshing.”

Michael F. Avalon

“The end result is beyond what I personally would have imagined, and I am extremely pleased with the outcome.

I would never have any hesitation to recommend you to any of my clients, family or friends, or to use you again if I ever move!”

Scott J. Collaroy

“The team that worked on our site was strong, cohesive, diligent and basically just nice guys. I respected their craftsmanship and in turn appreciated that they respected this site by keeping it organised and clean. I think your greatest strength is the willingness to listen to comments and feedback to help work towards the right outcome… Problem solving. James has a wonderful calm nature on site that helps to make the running of the job smooth. I think that everyone is looked after well and therefore works that much better.”

Rebecca F. Mosman

“James Hurt and his team were a pleasure to work with. Easygoing and hardworking, James ran a very clean and well-organised site, was always willing to accommodate or suggest improvements, and achieved an outcome with which the client has been extremely happy. I would not hesitate to use him for further projects, or to recommend him to prospective clients.”

Wesley Benn Director, Benn Design

All projects have been undertaken, managed and organised by Mr Hurt extremely competently, within tight restricted time periods, with minimal variations and were completed to a very high standard to the satisfaction of both ourselves and of our discerning clients.
