Our experience with KCS can be summed up with “ABC”.
A = Always “on”. On time, on budget and on-the-ball. Attention to the smallest detail is their hallmark.
B = Brave. They have the spine to tell you when something won’t work, and always have options, alternatives and work-arounds.
C = Communication. The hallmark of a great build is open communication. These boys do it very well.
We could go,on and on….
Actually, they were very much on-time, but we moved the goal posts on them mid-build: They finished a week early….
Lastly, all the crew were very easy going. Nothing is a problem for them. We are grateful to Chris, Shane and the boys for such a wonderful job. We can’t wait to discuss our next build!
To whom it may concern. We worked with Chris, Shane, Luke and the guys from KCS in the renovation of our 4-bed Queenslander in Red Hill. The job involved significant demolition, building in-underneath through two bedrooms, a hallway, internal stairs, new bathroom and laundry, as well as a new master bedroom, ensuite, walk-in-robe, open plan kitchen-living-dining, a renovated / extended main bathroom and a new deck upstairs. Prior to engaging KCS, we did about 12 months of planning and had eight building companies inspect and quote for the job. We could not have been happier with the service we received from KCS. The guys do very good quality work, are reasonable on price, meet all of their deadlines, are polite and clean up. The job came in on budget and ahead of schedule which friends tell us is unheard of in renovations.We found the general building industry to be notoriously unreliable; people do not show up to meet appointments, do not call to say they will be late and generally provide very poor customer service. KCS are the exception to this rule. They are always contactable, even after hours, and not once did they fail to meet an agreed deadline. KCS’ efficient systems, communication and positive attitude make a very difficult process manageable and enjoyable. The guys are very cooperative when negotiating design issues and provide creative and practical solutions to keep the build moving. KCS went to great lengths to cater for our personal likes / dislikes and did a number of odd jobs that they did not have to. The guys at KCS are very conscious of keeping the customer happy and nothing is ever too much trouble. In our opinion, KCS are the best building company in Brisbane. We look forward to working with KCS in future and have no hesitation in recommending them. Brad and Tamiko Gates
I have organised building works from renovations to complete new builds both commercially and privately. In that time I have employed various different builders. Over the last few years I have had the pleasure of getting to know the team at KCS Construction Qld and have used them on three recent jobs. They are without doubt the best building team I have come across and I would not hesitate to highly recommend them to anyone looking to build a new home, complete a renovation or for any smaller jobs. Chris and his team can be totally relied upon for high quality work, great value, trust, keeping to budget and terrific communication. They solve issues with the minimum of fuss and have the clients particular needs top of mind at all times. In particular, at the end of each day the work site is left in impeccable tidiness, which makes living through a renovation stress free.
What set KCS apart for us was the communication. We renovated our kitchen and added a deck as well as some other structural changes throughout the house. With two small children (2y and 7 months) and a fibro house to consider, I took the kids away and stayed with family during our renovation (for 4 weeks). It was critical in our situation that I had a tradie who I could talk to. I had no reservations expressing our wishes to Chris in detail and asking for his advice when I wasn't sure. If he had another option or what I wanted wasn't going to be the best option he was great in discussing everything to get the best result for us. During renovation he was regularly in contact with me personally even though he was seeing my husband every day. I even got photos sent to my phone at the end of every stage! By regularly checking with us we got the result we were after and are absolutely thrilled with the result.
Chris and the team from KCS provided a great service when we were fitting out our small cafe in new farm. Chris was always extremely professional and showed fantastic problem solving skills which was invaluable when contracting small workable spaces that have to be highly functional. I would strongly recommend his team and will definitely be using his services in the future.
The guys from KCS were fantastic!! Always more than happy to go the extra mile to keep the customer happy. I would happily recommend Chris and the team to anyone who needs work done.
We used Chris and KCS to build an extension to our home and were extremely satisfied with the work. His tradesmen were punctual and polite, building proceeded according to schedule and finished ahead of the planned timeframe. He was extremely helpful in taking on board new ideas and suggestions, creating several improvements that we hadn't expected possible. As well, he co-ordinated the work of other service-people to manage the whole of the development. His tradesmen always left the property neat and tidy at the end of each day. We would recommend Kanes Carpentry Services to anybody looking to have similar work done.
Good service, fast & reliable. Couldn't speak highly enough of these guys. Wish all tradesman were this efficient. Great job!
Chris and the KCS Team - we love your work! Thanks for the amazing overhaul you've done on our bathrooms and bedrooms. As first time renovators it was daunting contacting tradespeople for the first time, but in first meeting you we immediately felt relaxed and unrestricted. Thank you for your honesty, flexibility, and above all else - your craftsmanship! We appreciate every bit of consultation and advice you have provided along the way, and look forward to moving onto the next stage together. Room by room, you're improving our quality of life. Thank you.
We found Chris and his team both helpful and professional throughout our recent home renovation. We were delighted with the result with our newly created laundry and renovated rumpus room and entry areas of our home. Chris worked with us in developing our ideas into plans and then reality.
