I am an architect practising in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales for the last 20 years. Until recently, I have had difficulty in finding any builder who is committed to producing fine work which is other than routine construction and detailing. However, in recent years, I have come in contact with Philip Lenarduzzi – a builder who is dedicated to his work and capable of producing carefully detailed construction. He works on the construction himself; not acting as an administrator of a number of projects as many builders do.
Philip is concerned with the quality of the work he produces. Like attracts like, and his construction team have the same attitude. It is no surprise that all his subcontracters produce the same high-quality work. He has also sourced the best specialist manufacturers and suppliers of finishing material.
Phillip runs a well-organised construction program. On-site, and by phone, he keeps me informed. Even the smallest but important details are discussed. His experience is well worth making use of. He also requests of me detailed drawings in time for when he will require them, and/or materials to be selected for upcoming work. It is the ideal builder/architecture relationship.
Philip himself is a very pleasant person to work with. His behaviour is very relaxed, but still highly professional. This manner is the same with all his employees and contractors, but he can be firm and authoratative if he has to be so.
He gets on well with clients with whom he has the same relaxed attitude. It is no wonder he is in demand here as his reputation spreads. If you require his services you have to join the waiting list.
I have no hesitation in recommending Philip Lenarduzzi for any building work he wishes to take on, no matter how detailed the construction or demanding the finishes.
