The moment we sought a quote for our home renovation we were impressed with Murray’s knowledge, interest, engagement and communication. He described himself as ‘obsessional about the details’, and from the outset Murray made it clear all questions and queries were welcome. He coordinated all our trades, and importantly accompanied them on their initial quoting visits to ensure that there was clear understanding of the works required and of our aims and goals. Our level of confidence was enhanced by the strong relationships he clearly has with his teams.
His teams of trades provided us with high quality work and finishes, and most importantly he kept to timeline and to cost. During our project we required additional works involving landscaping which he was able to integrate into the schedule without fuss. He was even able to coordinate painters at last minute after our own contractor fell through.
In a previous project we had all sorts of problems with our builder, and are happy to say Murray and his team not only corrected some of those mistakes, but have also restored our faith in the building profession. He and his trades were a pleasure to work with, and we would not hesitate to engage him and Plumb Constructions in the future.
We engaged Murray Tanner of Plumb Constructions to raise and build underneath our Queenslander cottage and we couldn’t be happier with both the end result and the process. Murray was referred to us and having never renovated before, we really had no idea where to start. We’ll forever be grateful to Murray for his professionalism and patience in leading us through the process and completing our project to such a high standard, far quicker than we had expected.
Murray’s biggest asset is his great communication style. He kept us in the loop at every stage, happily answered our endless questions and anticipated potential problems before we’d even turned our minds to them. It was clear to us that Murray took great pride in his work and was completely invested in making sure he delivered a quality build. His many suggestions and tips really made our renovation. Murray was always mindful of our budget and guided us to where it made sense to spend more and where to pull back. His team of trusted suppliers were equally as professional and easy to deal with which made the process even smoother.
We had heard so many horror stories about renovation timeframes and budgets blowing out and terrible relationships with builders. We feel that we really lucked out in stumbling across Murray as our experience couldn’t have been more different. We can’t thank Murray enough for all the extra advice and guidance and all of the work behind the scenes that we didn’t see that made everything run as smoothly as it did. We can’t recommend Murray and Plumb Constructions enough and we’re looking forward to working with them again soon!
I engaged Murray Tanner of Plumb Constructions to renovate Stonewall Medical Centre in Windsor. It was a complex job as it involved joining two identical Queensland Cottages of different heights to make an expanded Medical Centre. We did the renovations while still operating as a Medical Centre with patients coming and going. There were multiple Certification challenges with demands from the Fire Engineer, the Disability Access Consultant on top of standard building requirements for a Building to be used as a Clinic. Murray and his team rose to the occasion and did an exceptionally good job.
I really appreciated his accessible communication style to plan, prevent and adjust to challenges and difficulties that arose. He worked with us and our regular sessions worked well to solve the demands of the job of converting two old houses to a functional clinic that meets the demands of building and access codes in the year 2017.
Murray welcomed my creative input for building a connecting Bridge that is now admired by patients, visitors and passers bye. Each of his tradesmen, from Builders to Electricians, Plumbers, Airconditioning Technicians, Earthmovers, Cement form workers, Bricklayers, Painters and Engineers were excellent to work with. They were all professional, respectful, efficient and pleasant to work with. We enjoyed having them working in our space while juggling the operations of a clinic. The tradesmen had some challenging tasks to solve, like building Skylights around existing support beams. They were skillful and hard working.
Murray is good at planning for each stage of the process and working with us to be accommodating. He was clear about the responsibilities and the costing/ payment schedules and any issues that needed clarification were welcomed with easy communication that focused on solutions on each occasion. We feel like Murray is now our friend and we have built good trust in completing the project as a team.
I am happy to recommend him for his skill, conscientiousness, efficiency and willingness to work together on a challenging project.
We and our patients are most happy with the end result and anyone is welcome to come and check it out anytime.
“Murray and his crew were professional, courteous and very accomodating by working around our schedules.
The work done was to a high standard and we were very pleased with the end result.
I have no hesitation in recommending Plumb Constructions for any building work you need doing no matter the size of the job.”
“Even before we signed the contract on our major renovation and addition, Murray Tanner from Plumb Constructions was more of a project partner than a builder. From handing our keys over to getting them back, we were extremely impressed with the professionalism, pragmatism and flexibility of Murray and his team at Plumb Constructions.”
“Our renovations worked well with Murray. Good communications, good construction, on time and on budget – can’t ask for more and would definitely recommend.”
Just a short note from Karissa and I to say thank you for our recently completed home renovation and extension.
You were referred to us as someone who would work with us, and your initial feedback and guidance on the plan layouts, material selections, and build ability were extremely valuable.
The ability to kick around ideas on the more important details during the build made for a good experience and a great end result.
As mentioned a few times, the quality of workmanship exceeded our expectations, not only a result of the right supervision, but from a genuine pride in the final form.
You said it would be a fast paced well-tuned build program, and you didn’t disappoint, but on a personal level little things like delivering the new kitchen before you took out the old made the living through the build part that much more bearable.
I will certainly recommend Plumb to those with similar needs in the future, a real credit to you and your wider team.
“I had the pleasure of having Murray Tanner from Plumb Constructions renovate/build my new dental surgery at Indooroopilly.
Murray specialises in renovating old Queenslanders and he sure knows what he is doing. From the get go he was quick, precise and efficient in all his paperwork and management of the whole build process from start to end. I have built a few times before, but the efficiency and quality of the delivery of the end result left me very impressed and pleased with having chosen Plumb construction for the project. All the trades who worked to bring the project to completion were very professional and pleasant to deal with and did work of a high quality. Murray was on the ball and always 4-6 weeks in advance with advice on what was to come and a testament to his efficiency is that we only had one day in the 6 month project when there was no one on site working. For a high quality, clean, efficient and on budget build I couldn’t recommend anyone other than Murray Tanner from Plumb Constructions.”
