We engaged Chris Kolar and the KC Constructions team for extension work to our semi-detached federation home. I initially chose them because they were competitively priced, easy going and came recommended by a friend.
Our project involved replacing all flooring throughout the home, extending the back of the property to create a new open plan living/dining, together with new bathroom, kitchen and landscaping. Work kicked off in mid-May and was estimated to take 6 months. Communication was clear throughout and the guys worked hard throughout the project. All their sub-contractors were professional too. You hear plenty of horror stories with renovations costing a lot more than anticipated or taking much longer than expected but that has not been the case. We actually found the build process enjoyable and have been able to move in before Christmas.
Credit to Chris and the KC Constructions team, who really look after their customers and a special shout out to Wayne, our foreman, for his customer-centric approach!Sri and Kari
KC Construction Group is a bunch of great gentlemen who are hard working and responsible, friendly and professional builders .
During project managing “Shanghai Lady Restaurant” I worked with them on, we had good fun, become great friends and overcome some challenges with different cultural clashes and language barriers.
They completed the job in a very tight time frame very nicely. Well done KC!Jacky Zeng – Project Manager of Shanghai Lady
Chris and his team completed an outstanding job for our large house extension in Lane Cove. They were very competitive against other builders on the market and luckily we made the right choice as the quality of work turned out amazing!
Chris started our job in October and were very considerable about our situation of moving in and out the house with a little one, they even worked during some weekends to smash the job in allowing us to move back in before Christmas. I’m very glad with our decision to go with them as they were professional, friendly and considerable.
There were no surprises during the project as you would have expected within this industry, Chris kept everything within budget for us, even variations were very reasonable. He kept me informed on where things were at and what needed to be done next and as challenges unfolded offered choices and recommendations to go forward.
I couldn’t have been any luckier with another builder. Once again I want the thank Chris and his team in particular for building us a great home and making things so easy for us.Xin
I’m very pleased to provide this letter of recommendation for Chris of KC Constructions NSW.
This letter is to thank you and your entire staff for your efforts in making the renovation of my home as painless as possible. From your initial participation in going through the house and seeing what needed to be done, to cost quoting and a quick turnaround time.
Throughout the course of renovation work, KC Constructions employees displayed a high level of professionalism, experience, dedication and commitment to quality. Chris did a good job of cultivating a teamwork orientated atmosphere and worked well with the project team to find solutions to problems and overcome numerous challenges during the course of construction.Marianne Ritter
Thank you so much for your help recently.
I found you and your team very helpful, capable and willing to go above and beyond to get the job done at a reasonable price, good quality and give honest and frank advice.
Your ability to communicate well, always willing to help and coordinate with various teams to be on time and deliver to my expectation was fantastic.
I will not hesitate to recommend you to family and friend or reach out for future work, particularly building a granny flat hopefully in the very near future.Osman Anwar
KC Constructions with Chris and Jason at the helm are the best workers I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Starting with the quick, efficient and competitive quote… work included demolishing the front wall, new windows and balcony doors installed, lintals installed and painting and finishing inside a two story property.
Their work ethic and efficiency continued to surprise … by getting better as the weeks progressed.A great team of scaffolders, bricklayers, painters and the many workers and delivery people. Always on time (in fact arrived early), cleaned up at the end of each and every day…. for 5 weeks!!!
The final day was efficiency itself, all materials removed, scaffolding removed. Cleaning began inside as well as outside…property was left spotless.
The renovation finished ‘bang on time’… delighted!!
I cannot recommend Chris and Jason highly enough and looking forward to working with them again.Helen
Thank you to Chris & the crew from KC Constructions for the guidance and support and finally installation of ducted airconditioning in my split level unit. I had been told by many companies over the years that I could only get a split level aircon unit which I didn’t want.
With ample roof space and the right aircon unit for our needs I finally had the job done. No more sweaty summers and restless sleeps. The fact it is zoned means I can cool or heat the areas I want to focus on or the whole place.
The tradies were professional, clean and had the whole lot installed in 5 hours!! Thank you so much our lives are so much more comfortable.Rebecca Mackey
KC Constructions recently completed the demolition and rebuilding of a set of masonry stairs and adjoining walls at our apartment block in Bondi Beach.
Chris and his team were very easy to deal with; polite, friendly and professional. The job was finished to a very high standard and in a timely manner.
I would definitely use them again and would recommend to others.Louise
I used KC Constructions recently for some building work at my house in Bellevue Hill. The job went very smoothly and was completed on time with great attention to detail.
Chris and all of his team were punctual, pleasant and took pride in their work.
I highly recommend them.Louise
Recently I had the pleasure of having an upstairs ensuite constructed by Chris and his team at KC Constructions.
The position of the ensuite was particularly challenging in its conception, design and construction. It required imagination and enthusiasm for the build but most importantly patience and perseverance and Chris and his team delivered that in spades.
The project needed to go into the roof line which presented challenges in both height and space. We tried for a number of years to get a builder to come and discuss the build of what we desired and to give us a quote but no one was willing to do this.
That was a fruitless exercise until Chris came along and from the initial face to face contact he oozed confidence and gave us the surety he knew what he was talking about which gave us the confidence that he was the builder we wanted to deal with.
From the initial design and start of construction I knew we had made the right decision and Chris, Wayne and the team displayed a high degree of professionalism in their work, care at every step of the way and made sure we were part of the thought processes all the way through the build.
Because of the difficulty of the build a number of changes had to be made to the design but nothing was ever a problem for Chris and the team and the suggestions they came up with only enhanced the end result.
Both Karen and I remain amazed on how well Chris dealt with us and how loyal his team are to him and how much respect they showed us and each other.
We are so pleased that we had the good fortune of meeting and engaging Chris to do our work. Sometimes you can be lucky and the guy upstairs looks favourably down on you to help you, well we were very fortunate in this case.
Both Karen and I highly recommend Chris and KC Constructions for any build you may have.Karen and Dennis Spagarino
We had Chris and his team at KC Constructions recently complete an extension and off street parking space for our inner city terrace.
From the beginning one thing that set Chris apart from the other quotes we received was his communication and professionalism, and then he topped it all off with a competitive quote. Chris and his team were always punctual and courteous, with a strong commitment to quality work that always exceeded our expectations.
With renovating old properties, there’s a good chance you’re going to encounter unforeseen problems and that was a real concern for us leading into this project, however, when issues inevitably surfaced, Chris’s explanations and solutions that were tailored towards our budget came as such a welcome relief and put our minds at ease. In the end we had complete trust in Chris that he was always doing the best by us, and it was obvious from the start that was always his main objective.
We loved having Chris and his team here and look forward to having them back for future projects. Thank you again for the excellent work, we are absolutely in love with our new home.Nick and Alyce Perkins
This is the second time I have used KC Contructions for my buliding projects. Great care and effort was put into my building project by Chris and his team. I like that Chris takes a personal interest in the design phase and his creative input helped bring all the features together.
I was kept informed daily of progress being made. I had to change a couple things and Chris was duly flexible with this. The work and materials used are excellent quality such that I feel I got good value for my money spent on the project.
I was very happy with the results and I would highly recommend KC Constructions for any building workElma Mulic
Renovating our 3 bedroom apartment in Crows Nest, a few weeks into the renovation project things got so chaotic: badly managed and executed by the original builder, that we decided to find another company to do all variations on the initial scope of works.
After some research, asking friends, we found Chris’ website, read the positive reviews and had him over to discuss. A breeze of fresh air: Chris is knowledgeable, professional and focused on solving challenges. He is a pleasure to work with and he got it all organised within a very short time. On top, he and the team completed the work ahead of schedule, left no mess and delivered a first-class job.
The variations involved replacing all internal doors with new hard wood doors, replacing all architraves, built a faux wall with TV niche, take out corniches, new skirting, installing pelmets and re-render all internal walls.
We highly recommend Chris and the KC Constructions team and will be asking him back for any future job!Katherine
Recently [early 2018] we commissioned KC Constructions to construct a sunroom at the rear of our inner city terrace house.
We selected KC Constructions as we had worked with Chris Kolar at our house for an upstairs extension and a rear shed rebuild and were very happy with the jobs he did for us back then. The rear sunroom was a small but difficult job, our terrace has no front off street parking so all the building materials had to be delivered by hand down a rear ‘dunny’ lane. The job was completed in just a few days and the yard, as usual, left clean and rubbish free.
The team at KC Constructions, and their contractors are all first class. I can highly recommend KC Constructions to anybody considering building work, large or small.Ian Richardson
I bought a really old house that needed quite a bit of work. Finding the right person to assist me to renovate this project took some time as timing was also dependant on the builder’s projects. In my search, I met six builders. Chris was one of those who was punctual, listened to what my needs were, and gave a competitive quote.
Throughout the seven month renovation, Chris was very communicative through email, texts and phone calls. When I wanted extra things done, Chris calculated variations quickly and offered options to suit my budget.
On site he is focused and professional, with a “can-do” attitude. I would recommend KC Constructions, and would use his services again for my future project.Ross
We engaged KC Constructions for a balcony and facade renovation project. Chris provided a competitive quote however it was his enthusiasm and commitment which set him apart from other builders who quoted. Chris was collaborative in discussing our design ideas and proactive in researching and advising on suitable materials and products long before the contract was even signed. From the commencement of the job, Chris’s team were friendly, courteous and professional. Despite difficult access given the height of our property, no task was ever too hard.
With a job of this size, issues are bound to arise from time to time. However, what impressed us the most about Chris was his commitment to ensuring that we were 100% satisfied and that all tasks were completed to the level of quality that we expected. If we had any issues, Chris would ensure that his subbies were back on site to rectify the situation until we were totally happy. At no stage would Chris try and downplay any issue or dismiss any of our concerns, which gave us the confidence that quality would not be compromised and this is reflected in the finished product.
We want to thank Chris and the rest of the team from KC Constructions for their efforts and for meeting our high standards, we could not be happier with the results!Trent & Leanne
We were apprehensive about completely stripping out our old kitchen and replacing it with a new one.
We searched around for a while and got a few quotes. Most were out of our price range and the whole process seemed complicated and over the top.
Then a friend recommended Chris from KC Constructions. She was very happy with the work he had been doing at her place. Sure enough Chris and his team lived up to their promise. Competitive quote and great workmanship. What impressed us most was how well Chris communicated with his team. He was constantly on to his team to ensure that we were happy with everything that was being done. When issues came up, they would be dealt with straight away. An excellent and professional service and we would recommend Chris to everyone even our fussiest of friends as they will not be disappointed.
Thank you KC Constructions for our lovely new kitchen, we are loving it.Aspa
KC Constructions undertook a difficult renovation to our external balcony as it was discovered to be a nightmare DYI from the previous owners (some people should be banned from entering hardware stores!). Due to the discovered complexity of these works, Chris and his team delivered a professional solution and all extra variation works were discussed prior to commencing. It is pleasing in this environment that KC Constructions delivered not only a quality job but also delivered a quality administrated job!Warrick Davis
KC Constructions changed the weatherboard to render on the outside of my home, they also replaced the windows and the front veranda.
Chris’s attention to detail is exceptional, he has been punctual from the initial meeting and delivering quotes on time.
When problems arise he has been resourceful and provided us with options to overcome the obstacle. Chris’s team has been very helpful and take great pride in their work. We would not hesitate to recommend KC Constructions for your next renovation.Karen Briffa
Chris and his off-siders could only be described as highly professional, good mannered people with top notch workmanship.
They say a good tradesman cleans up after himself – they did.
Highly recommended. If you want some thing done right these are the guys to do it.Jimmy
Chris was very helpful right from start to finish – He understood clearly what we wanted to have and came up with an excellent design. He was very prompt with his written quote which was highly competitive.
He started the job on time and more importantly finished it on time. His job was very professional and of high standard. His attention to detail was second to none.
Overall, we were very impressed with his work ethics and helpful nature. Of course, we will not hesitate to call him again and have already recommended him to our friends and family.Sam
Chris was punctual and diligent, and was always a pleasure to deal with. From demolition to completion the team did an amazing job. We couldn’t be happier with the result, and have already recommended KC Constructions to friends and family.
We look forward to working with Chris and the team in the future.Phillip Briffa
To the KC Constructions boys, thanks for what you did for me when I was building my house . Your work was at a high standard and more importantly you made me feel comfortable, I didn’t have to worry about you guys.
Thanks for a great job see you at the next project!Ray Hassarati
KC construction is by far the best service we have ever worked with. Chris and his staff are courteous, professional, knowledgeable, competent and it truly shows in the service they provide. It is apparent that Chris really cares about the quality of work he is providing to his customers and going above and beyond for us.
I would recommend highly recommend KC construction to anyone looking for an excellent landscaping or home renovation. We are so pleased with the service we will be using them again on all our home improvements.
Many thanks to Chris and team.Yokwa Yang
I am writing to you on behalf of my husband and I to say thank you to you and your team for doing a good job at our place. We appreciate the professional and hard work you all did.Teresa Aguilar
Chris recently completed the construction of a Bay Window on the upper floor of our Terrace house in Chippendale Sydney.
This required the removal of the existing rotting window and cutting a new larger opening of twice the size through a double brick wall. Chris then supplied and fitted a cedar double bay window complete with metal roofing and internal opening lid and storage under seating in the window area.
The work was trimmed, lined and finished and all waste materials were removed and the room and yard left in a clean and tidy condition.
Needless to say we are extremely happy with the work Chris and his team have done on this job. We have no hesitation in recommending KC Constructions NSW PTY LTD for their good work.Roz Marsh and Ian Richardson
Late in 2016 we commissioned KC Constructions P/L. to construct an upstairs rear room and bathroom at the rear of our inner city terrace house.
We obtained a few quotes for the job and found KC Constructions price was competitive with the others. We selected KC as we had worked with Chris Kolar some years ago and were very happy with the job he did for us back then.
The rear room was a difficult job, our terrace has no front of street parking so all the building tools, scaffolding and building materials had to be delivered by hand down a rear ‘dunny’ lane. During the construction there were a couple of unforeseen issues to do with Sydney Council requirements. These were dealt with effectively and efficiently by KC.
The team at KC, and their contractors were all first class. I can highly recommend KC Constructions to anybody considering building work.Roz & Ian
