Working as an architect I meet and work with many builders. I have been fortunate to work alongside Evan who is known by ex-clients for the quality of finish on projects from small renovations to multiple townhouses. Evan has recently completed the construction of a passive solar designed house under a tight timeframe. Evan was able to complete the project on time despite 9 days of wet weather.

During construction I was impressed by Evan’s well thought-out method of building. As a registered architect I work on many custom and well detailed buildings and get to see how these buildings are realised. Evans has the ability to read drawings and interpret their design-intent which is critical to quality building and, a characteristic that can be rare in builders. As an example of this, during the construction of the house, Evan obtained samples of the future door sill and jamb and produced a 1:1 full scale sketch of how the threshold of the door would transition from inside to out in order to provide a minimal threshold… the design intent. This approach of bringing a solution to the table before a design problem is raised is one of the best attributes a builder can have and one that I saw on multiple occasions during the project. Evan also worked well with the nominated joiner on the project and collaborated to complete crossover elements that other builders may have questioned. When working with Evan I am comfortable to leave construction of the most important elements of designs in his capable hands in the certainty that the built form will reflect the original design-intent.
