What our customers have to say about us

Thirdson Constructions was a godsend for us in an incredibly tumultuous time. Despite being one of the most difficult times for construction companies in recent memory, Thirdson were honest, fair and transparent throughout the whole process.

We began our journey with Thirdson when the homebuilder grant was first announced and they assisted us to keep tight time frames in relation to this, providing us with guidance through the planning and approvals stage.

When construction began, supply chain issues and cost blow outs were ravaging the industry, yet Thirdson never displaced what was inevitably a huge burden for them onto us. Through very diligent planning and preparation, they were well placed to respond to these issues and supply delays (while existing) were minimal compared to what they would have been without the thought that the team put in to minimising them.

As construction continued we got to see the true brilliance of this company, who always found the best quality option for finishes, without impacting our bottom line. There were countless times I was surprised to learn about an exceptional product sourced by the team, focussed on longevity and sustainability, without blowing the budget.

There were several fork in the road moments in this build where an issue would arise which I was not 100% sure would be resolved in our favour, however Thirdson showed incredible ethics at all times and would always mediate a solution which we were happy with.

The quality of build, integrity of the team, advice and guidance from staff and personal interactions with the owner were of the highest standard and made a difficult time much less so.

We’re eternally grateful to Thirdson for making our dream come true. Thank you all so much.

Testimonial from Ramona Raggl

With a growing family, we were bursting at the seams in our little post war house, and realised that in order to stay, we needed to do a major renovation and extension. We spent a stressful twelve months working on a design and acquiring council approval only to discover that the design was double our budget. We were despondent and unsure what to do, but then we met David. David was absolutely amazing from our very first meeting and we instantly knew he was the builder for us. From the very beginning David and Esther patiently listened to all of our ideas, and transformed them into a truly amazing and unique design that reflected our personal style, lifestyle, and most importantly – our budget.

Following council approval, David’s team worked with the highest level of professionalism and attention to detail to transform our house into a modern home. Communication was at the forefront throughout the entire project. David and his team were always contactable and willing to discuss any issues or concerns, no matter how big or small. We always knew exactly what was happening on site at all times, and were regularly informed of the project status.

We had the most amazing time working with David, Esther and the team; from design to completion, it has been stress-free and thoroughly enjoyable. We would highly recommend Thirdson Construction to anyone who wants to transform their home into something special.

My wife and I used David and his team to renovate our property in Corinda, Brisbane.
It’s been almost 3 years since the projects was completed so the review is well overdue.

The project was a lift and build under of an existing Queenslander.

David and his team were super organised and very straightforward to deal with at all times of the build.
The Subcontractors Dave engages are all first class. Especially Matt from cut above kitchens.
Everything went smoothly, to plan and on budget.
To save costs, I completed the paining of the property personally. This gave gave me the opportunity to get up close and view the workmanship before what would otherwise be the painters job to fill all the defects. Let’s just say there was no need to fill in the gaps as the workmanship was spot on.
On a side note.
Dave and the team used an app that they updated daily with pictures of the build process (so you got see what was going if you couldn’t get to site.) in addition the app also allowed me to sign for variances and decisions on costs and ordering. That way there was no disputes when it came to paying the bills.

Lastly, David and his team are backed up by David’s sister Esther who does all the ordering and co-ordination of fittings and selections. She also was a pleasure to deal with.

My wife and I are exceptionally proud of the home that Dave and his team helped us create.

We do not hesitate in recommending Thirdson construction to our friends and family if someone is looking for a builder.

Thirdson Constructions undertook a $750K renovation of a 1905 workers cottage in Greenslopes, Brisbane for me. I used their design services as well as their construction services. The project wasn’t an easy design and build, with a number of restrictions in place from the council/certifier as to what we could and couldn’t do. Thirdson Constructions were very helpful through all stages (design, budget/quote and build).

Thirdson Constructions own team, and their various sub-contractor trades, were excellent and I received numerous compliments during the build from neighbours and other residences in the street, on not only the quality of their work, but also how they went about their daily activities. The end result was a fantastic outcome which has been beyond my expectations.

Their efforts have transformed a tired 2 bed, 1 bath workers cottage into a 5 bed, 3 bathroom home with numerous features such as double garage, pool, ducted air con, security system, deck, patio etc.

Thirdson Constructions were very engaged with all finishes and selections on the project and were very knowledgeable in what was current with market trends to help me in these areas. I recommend them highly and can’t thank them enough for what has been a fantastic outcome on this project.

Testimonial from Kim Carrigan

Thirdson Construction were amazing to work with throughout the development and delivery of our project. No detail was too much trouble, and they went to extraordinary lengths to identify exceptional outcomes at all stages of construction.

Testimonial from Nick and Zuz

We had an excellent experience with Thirdson Construction in the renovation of our own home and architecture studio. The team was always fully onboard with achieving the design outcome that we had documented. We never felt any pushback on our ideas and often worked closely together to resolve some of the more ambitious details on site. We have subsequently recommended Thirdson to current residential clients of our practice and hope to continue to work together.

Dave and his team were excellent to work with. Dave took away my worries and concerns by assuring me they could get the job done with ease, and they did. Dave looks after his clients as well as the project at hand. Making sure all needs are met and questions answered. He is upfront and honest making himself readily available at all times. For any future build enquiries Dave will be my “go to”. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I’d give ten stars if I could!

Testimonial from Simone K

We embarked on the process of extending and renovating a 1980’s style home and wanted to use a builder that understood the character of our home with raked ceilings and timber rafters. When I had my first meeting with David I felt comfortable in the knowledge that I had found that builder. David ensured that the features of the new build picked up the character of the old in an updated and stylish way.

Thirdson constructions were a pleasure to deal with. They were professional and respectful of a family living through the process of an big extension. There were many facets involved in the tying in of the new build to the old and it was through careful thought and discussion that this was completed successfully. As a first time big project for us, David was always able to answer queries and help provide advice.
We are impressed with the attention to detail that was employed in listening to what our overall vision was with both the pool area and extension and look forward to many happy and comfortable years in our home.

Testimonial from Ryan Jess Pearl

We had grand ideas of transforming our tiny miners cottage, into a light filled family home for five. Having never undertaken a project like this before, we were apprehensive about what could be achieved whilst staying within our modest budget.
After contacting David from Thirdson Construction, it was clear from our first meeting that we had found the right builder to help us achieve our dream.

At every stage of the build, from the initial design process and costings, right through to the finishing details, David kept us involved and informed. He listened to our ideas, and had practical and creative solutions. He was very approachable and always took the time to answer any questions we had, making us feel very comfortable. The quality of his work was of an extremely high standard, and he was happy to source products that weren’t readily available. David and his team completed the build on time and on budget.

Thirdson Construction doubled the size of our century old miners cottage, with the finished result blending perfectly between the old and the new. We couldn’t be happier, and would recommend them to anyone!

Testimonial from 4305design

David did so much more than build my new home. He worked closely with both myself and the architect to perfect the look and functionality of the spaces, provided sound advice on construction methods, material selection and final products, was able to be both enthusiastic and realistic working with the ideas I had for the finished product. The project was completed within the agreed budget for both time and finances, and the home is not only fabulous to live in but also won several awards.
