PIP CRICHTON - Woollahra

I could not recommend the team from Burmah Construction more highly and as a repeat renovator, I would not use any other building team. From the outset I found Chris (owner...leader of the crew) to be integral, honest, well organised, communicative and available.

My renovation job was not easy as my home was built in 1901 and we uncovered lots of challenges along the way. The team were flexible, able to work with me to solve “problems” and positively focused on achieving a fabulous outcome at all times. With an eye for detail, the average building team may have found me fussy, demanding or wanting of things that weren’t a possibility.

As bespoke builders, the Burmah Construction team patiently worked with me to create an incredible renovation.

We were extremely happy with the Construction Services provided by Chris and the team at Burmah Constructions. Our build intent was to integrate the existing cottage with the new extension and Chris and his team did a great job with the challenges of having a family of 5 (and a very active dog) living on site, running a business from home and being able to work around us. Matt, the site supervisor was a pleasure to work with and Burmah Constructions delivered our gorgeous beachside property on time and a place we love to call home!

Interior Designer - Bellevue Hill

We worked with Chris and his team at Burmah Constructions on a tricky two-level apartment rebuild in Bellevue Hill. This project was a challenge from the start as the property had exquisite but dilapidated ornate ceilings which needed to be maintained however the property itself was virtually gutted.

Being an old property, it presented us with a number of interesting challenges which were met and dealt with swiftly and competently by Chris and his team. The true measure of a professional is their response to a problem and when a rather expensive and significant issue arose during construction (that was not Burmah's fault) Chris' response was of the utmost professionalism. His site foreman Matt was an absolute delight to work with – always cheerful, polite and accommodating.

Plans were followed and questions always asked when there was any doubt which are qualities that as interior designers we need from a builder for a harmonious work site. With a spectacular finished outcome, the end result was a very happy client. Quality and professionalism are the cornerstones of Burmah Constructions and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending them. We look forward to working with them again in the near future.

Property Owner - Queens Park

We were absolutely delighted with the work that Chris and his team from Burmah Constructions did for us on our major home renovation. The work of the highest standard; the team worked quickly and efficiently, keeping us appraised of progress at all times and seamlessly managing all of the the subcontracts, while maintaining a very close attention to detail.

There we no surprises and any issues that (inevitably) arose were dealt with quickly. Dan Knight, the foreman was an incredibly hard and diligent worker who was always at pains to ensure that the building works were of least inconvenience to our family as is possible, which is not easy to do when we lived onsite throughout the project.

We can not recommend Chris and Burmah highly enough to any prospective clients.

Simon Vaughan - Birchgrove

The Renovation of the Louisa Rd Residence presented many difficult challenges for a highly skilled and experienced builder. This included excavating under a 4 storey masonry house on a confined site, construction of a 4m high suspended deck over a rock face that in part spanned over the harbour below, building a stair down a cliff face to precisely fit around varying rock formations, and renovating a harbour side pool that suffered from concrete cancer. Burmah was pro-active in finding rational and cost effective solutions that satisfied the high expectations of the owner and our detailed architectural requirements. Chris and his team consistently considered the best way to procure the job from heavy structural requirements to fine interior detailing to ensure the highest quality result was achieved. Importantly, working with Burmah for the second time was once again a pleasure, and we look forward to working with them on the next project.

Ben - Northbridge

Chris and the Burmah Constructions team were builders for the renovation of this house in Northbridge. Throughout the project they were professional, friendly and a pleasure to work with. They did a great job and I look forward to working with them on future projects.

After many years in Hong Kong, we decided to return to our Northbridge home in 2015. Prior to our return, we had architectural plans drawn and contacted Burmah Constructions about doing the renovations on our house. We had known Chris for many years and he had built a reputation as a trustworthy and professional builder. Fortunately for us, we had Nick Rados as our foreman with Chris overseeing all stages of the build. Their professional and personable nature was appreciated by all members of our family and made the renovation experience a positive one. Burmah Constructions did a wonderful job and we have had numerous family & friends comment on the quality of the work they did on our home. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Chris & his Burmah team to anyone looking to complete residential or commercial construction.

Jane Johnson, Architect – Newtown - Kent Street, Newtown

Burmah Constructions were the contractors on a residential project in Newtown by Jane Johnson Architects. They came highly recommended to me by an architect who had worked with them several times, and ever since I have highly recommended them to other colleagues and potential clients. They are a very conscientious team, who are clearly well respected by their sub-contractors. I cannot speak highly enough about the foreman on the project, Daniel Knight, who gave 110% of himself on a project which required a lot of attention to detail.

Burmah’s owner, Chris Griffin, has what it takes to run a successful construction company – he cares about his projects, he cares about his staff and he cares about his clients. Moreover, he is always calm and reasonable when inevitable issues arise on site, which makes him a pleasure to deal with.

Sarah & Julian Williams - Rose Bay

Burmah Constructions undertook the extensive renovation of our 4 bedroom home in 2006 and delivered a very high quality product on time and on budget. It was so easy. Chris and the project foreman, Matt, were always happy to discuss matters as they arose, were easy to deal with and worked well with our architect. Communication, a key factor, was great. Nothing was ever a problem that couldn't be worked out.

Anon. - Surry Hills

We underwent a major renovation of a late 1800s terrace house. It was a major personal and financial investment. After hearing so many building horror stories we weren't expecting it to go smoothly. In the end the quality of the work was excellent and the experience was a good one. Communication from Burmah, both Chris and Matt, was excellent, as was their pride in the result. We understood where we were at in the process which helped us to budget as the build progressed. We were able to meet on site when required to iron out any issues with the build or suppliers. Based on our experience we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Burmah.

Tracey Van Weelde - St Leonards

Burmah Constructions came recommended to us for our dental office fitout. It required completely gutting an old 3 storey terrace and setting up a dental practice complete with client and staff offices, dental rooms and an x-ray room. Throughout the 9 month project, we found Burmah Constructions and their contractors extremely professional and easy to deal with. Their work was of a very high standard and all issues were dealt with quickly and successfully. We are extremely pleased with the finished result and have had great feed-back from our customers.

I would not hesitate to recommend Chris and his team for your next project.
