We have built a reputation on a foundation of excellence, trust, professionalism and honesty.
We have worked with Joe Proud on a range of residential projects for different clients. On each project Joe represented himself with the utmost professionalism and complete attention to detail. By nature, a problem solver, Joe was always looking to work with us as the Architects to come up with a solution to problems that worked in with the design intent and the client’s needs. It was clear almost immediately that Joe wanted to do things properly and without compromise. He would often identify potential problems in advance. We really valued his partnering approach and the close-knit team environment this created. He is an exceptional builder with an honest and approachable character. We would recommend Joe and his team to any of our clients looking for a high-quality build.
Joe and his team have worked at two of our properties completing major renovations. Both projects were completed on time and within budget. Their communication skills are unparalleled and attention-to-detail is the best we have ever seen. They are competitively priced and there are no surprises with regards to added costs
I cannot thank and recommend Joe Proud and the team at August Developments enough. To put it simply, if you can get them, use them, you will not be disappointed. Of the builders we had met, none had asked “What about the build process is important to us? How much input would we like to have?” Joe was different, he asked these questions and many more, he would actively seek our input and ideas, making us, not just the client, but part of the team. I have heard horror stories of fall outs between client and builders. With Joe’s superior interpersonal skills, unflappable nature and can-do attitude, this is never going to be an issue. To this day, we regard Joe and the August Developments team as friends and speak often.
We bought a home that had the potential to be our dream home, but that needed lots of work. Joe did an amazing job working with us and the architect. Firstly, on the design and plans, and then the renovation. He was always practical, pragmatic, full of ideas and had a can-do attitude. Within six months the place was transformed. I would definitely recommend Joe to anyone looking to do major renovations wishing to create their dream home.
Joe and his team were a pleasure to deal with at every stage of the build, from planning through to completion. Joe worked well with our architect and was a great communicator. We always knew where things were up to and he talked us through the myriad of decisions you need to make when doing an extension. He made it possible for a family of five to live on a building site without any meltdowns from either builder or family. The final product demonstrates Joe’s attention to detail and high standards. We love our new space and the extension has greatly enhanced our family life. We would happily recommend him to others.
