Green Living


We recently decided to renovate our 2 storey Victorian terrace – restoring the front of the house as well as demolition and addition of a new open plan extension including kitchen, open plan living area, 2 bathrooms, laundry and a bedroom. We received a number of quotes and the quote from High Ridge Constructions was really competitive.

And we have been impressed with the quality of the workmanship, and the quality of the trades that Paul has on staff and has access to. Communication was fantastic, and we knew what was going on and what decisions we needed to make ahead of time. This made the process a lot less stressful than what we imagined it would be.

If we were to build or renovate again, we would definitely want to work with High Ridge Construction again. As a testament to the great experience we had we have also engaged High Ridge Constructions again to complete building works in our garden.

Vanessa, Brooke, Rachel and I would like to thank you and your team at High Ridge Constructions for doing such a good job on our renovation and extension project. We were warned by our friends and family about the pitfalls of extending our house and living through a renovation. But your building skills and project management saw our project completed on-time and on-budget. We are very happy and proud of the finished product and look forward to enjoying our "new home" for years to come. We liked the way you honoured your commitments, took ownership of issues and invested time to address any concerns we had. We found you a very trustworthy tradesperson and you should be proud of your reputation. We should have a chat if we choose to renovate investment properties in the future.

I have recently completed a major renovation of a property at the above address and employed High Ridge Constructions to do the building.I cannot recommend this company and director Paul Plozza highly enough as he did a fantastic job with the building,the costings and kept right to the time frame promised.Paul budgeted to complete all works in 155 working days and actually handed over to us in 154 days which we were very pleased about.He seemed to organise all deliveries and trades to be there at the appropriate times and there hardly was a day when some work was not being done on the house.This fact was frequently mentioned by the neighbours who delighted in watching the progress of the building.

I would certainly use Paul’s company again if I were to build once more in the inner city area. The costings were accurate and whenever we wanted to make alterations or additions to the design Paul was very happy to oblige and always accurately forecast quotes for these works.He was also very happy to fit in with any other outside people who also worked on the project installers. Whenever a problem came up he was quick to get us in to discuss how to solve it and always come up with a solution.

I am happy to discuss any of the above if anyone wishes to contact me on 0407443463.

I, Jamie Skrepetis director of JNat Building Inspections Pty Ltd, am pleased to provide a professional reference for Paul Plozza.

I have known him professionally for approximately 7 years, in which time he has been involved with a variety of domestic building projects. During building permit applications, he has always been efficient and pleasant to deal with. I have conducted many inspections for over the years and have found him extremely knowledgeable in all facets of construction. The detail, attention and pride in his work is exceptional. Paul is always willing to listen and learn to suggestions, thus equipping him with the knowledge and experience to under take any project.

Paul has been involved with many developments and large scale quality homes, both of which have been built extremely well and to the highest quality. If you have any queries regarding this reference, please don’t hesitate to contact me on 9372 7666.

High Ridge Constructions were contracted to renovate and extend our home in Kensington. Throughout the entire process, including the bid phase, Paul Plozza always remained positive and communicated with us about any of our concerns. He was very accommodating in regards to working with some trades people that we had organised for specific areas.

The project was completed on time and on budget. We are very happy with the final result and would definitely use High Ridge Constructions again and not hesitate in recommending Paul and his team at High Ridge Constructions.

It is with pleasure that we provide a reference for High Ridge Constructions (Paul Plozza) engaged by ourselves to extend and renovate our 1939 Californian bungalow.

The project involved the demolition of the rear section of the single level weatherboard house. The
ground floor was extended by adding 73m2 of open plan living, kitchen, pantry and laundry plus
another 20m2 alfresco area and 40m2 garage &carport. A new 90m2 upper level comprising 3
bedrooms, living area and bathroom was also constructed. In addition the existing house was
renovated, in keeping with the period style of the era.

We were impressed by High Ridge's quality, efficiency and professionalism:

• The project commenced on the agreed date in May 2011 and was completed in under the 6 month agreed time frame.:

• The budget as reflected in the construction contract was delivered, with any of our requests for variations properly approached, including transparent pricing and specification.
• The attention to our plans was commendable, especially in regard to the renovation of the period style home, which required dedication to produce the desired outcome.
• Both the employees and the various contractors working for High Ridge were all easy to deal with, listening to our requirements and took the time to work with us in delivering the outcome we initially presented.
• Communication was open and any queries were always quickly addressed.
• For a large build, the disruption to the neighbours was minimal and all employees were friendly and courteous.

During the contractor selection process, we met with various builders but we gained a good level of confidence in High Ridge and initially felt comfortable, a feeling which continued throughout the project.

Our experience with High Ridge has been very satisfying and we would recommend the company to anyone who is thinking of undertaking a residential extension.
