Is a tree change or sea change on the cards? When you're dreaming of a change, more often than not a new home is part of that dream.

1. Gil & Carl, when did your interest for design and construction begin?
2. What does the Australian culture look for in good design?
3. What should clients look for in a good builder?
4. How can people optimize the design of their home to enjoy the surroundings?
Gil & Carl - Homes are all about lifestyle with a high emphasis on the landscape, views, and orientation to the north etc. These factors will enhance the outcome and if there are no views on offer in a town block situation, the design should focus on privacy and noise reduction, especially if on a busier street. This can be achieved by double glazing, material selection, acoustic insulation and tasteful screening and fencing whilst still be aesthetically pleasing.

8. If a client wants to works with you, what is the process?
Gil & Carl - Generally our clients hear about us via word of mouth or we come recommended from architects, they then call us and we have a meeting with them. This is usually on their proposed building site, and it is here we get an overview of their wish list. We then recommend an architect or designer which we think is most suited to the type of build they have in mind.
Alternatively after hearing or reading about us they may have their own architect who then approaches us. We have several meetings with the clients and architects throughout the concept stage of a new build. This requires a lot of preparation to review the site and plans, we use our knowledge to advise on construction methods, materials and design considerations to maximise the end result in the most economical way.

“I cannot recommend Gil highly enough. Gil was focused on the project from the very first meeting, was extremely flexible in accommodating changes, and very knowledgeable in providing good advice and guidance along the way.”
“Gil managed to our timeframes, and the end result was to the highest standard. It was a real pleasure working in partnership with Gil and I look forward to another project with him in future! He’s definitely a builder you keep for life.”
