We conducted a very extensive contractor selection process prior to our build. There was only one winner. We opted for Andrei and his team at Character Construction for a number of reasons but his innovative ‘Can Do’ approach to building stood out. This proved to be one of our greatest decisions.....
There is always a solution, his work ethic and attention to detail is amazing and he strives for perfection at all times. The workmanship and quality is excellent and he has an amazing team. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
As a Builder of the highest quality Andrei is honourable, trustworthy, honest, and fair. As a person he is even better than that and we would consider him a friend.
Andrei and his team made our dreams come true.

"Andrei (Character Building) was excellent. He refurbished our 2 bedroom apartment. It was clear he had several projects (on much bigger properties than ours) and he ensured our project had equal attention. He was very good to deal with and his advice was very helpful both in relation to design issues of the refurbishment and the selection of materials. The workmanship was of a very high quality and changes in the plan were readily altered. After completion small snags were sorted without difficulty. We were delighted with the
finished apartment, which looks fantastic. Andrei and his team did a
wonderful job and we would have no hesitation in availing of his services for a
"Character did a comprehensive refurb/rebuild of our villa in 2009 and the workmanship and quality of finish was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble to Andrei and his team. Since that time whenever any issues have arisen Andrei has responded promptly and overcome the problem without any fuss or difficulty. I have no hesitation in highly recommend Andrei and Character for any building plans you may have."
"It was a very demanding project with a lot of technical challenges. Character Construction was able to overcome these challenges and deliver the project on a very short timeline without any compromise on quality. They were a pleasure to work with."
