The GSTRUCT GROUP Testimonials

What people say about GSTRUCT GROUP

Our 5 Star Review

“From the first conversation over the phone with Glenn from GSTRUCT GROUP, I felt comfortable that Glenn was the right builder for our long-planned house project on the Mornington Peninsula. 

The project was a new build on our farm. We had a planning approval and a bare paddock. The architectural drawings were not progressed much past planning documents, so pricing the job was challenging. 

With the right builder, I would always prefer a cost, plus contract, especially given we were living on the property and could track progress and make decisions quickly as detailed documentation was presented.

The pricing process was very thorough and transparent. All the major trades were put to tender with as much detail as we could provide. At least three prices were sought and received and presented by Glenn, who was fully engaged in every detail from day one. 

From the initial tender process, we had a good indication of the price, with an understanding that the prices submitted would alter based on detailed drawings. From that point we entered into a cost, plus contract, that we were both happy with. 

The project timelines were tight, initiated more so by Glenn than us as the clients. The process kicked off and despite a large number of critical aspects of the building materials still undecided or indeed detailed, Glenn forged ahead. 

The project could have easily derailed on numerous occasions due to delayed drawings and changes that ourselves and the architect initiated mid-build. Glenn never once lost his cool. 

Glenn coordinated the landscaping, hard and soft, dealt with planning matters pertaining to the changed pool layout, all the time managing and ensuring the house was processing on time and budget. 

Glenn treated the trades on site in a firm but fair manner. No corners were cut or errors swept over. The trades respected the work site as it was safe, clean and well maintained despite the soaking it endured from months of rain. 

The sequencing and coordination of trades on site was seamless. Productivity on site was therefore constant and hence the house was delivered on time, swiftly followed by the landscaping and pool.

In terms of service, Glenn has, to this day, 12 months post-handover, never failed to bend over backwards to ensure any matters that needed attention were dealt with promptly. 

In terms of administrative prowess, Glenn presented the monthly paperwork consistently within the first 2 weeks of the month without fail. The detail of progress claims was flawless. We didn’t have any progress claim issues at all. 

I cannot finish a reference for GSTRUCT without mentioning Rhett Barber, Glenn’s site foreman. Rhett was exceptional throughout the project and complemented Glenn’s approach to firm but fair treatment of trades, and unwavering service to the client. 

I highly recommend GSTRUCT GROUP and am grateful for the workmanship delivered on all levels of our project”.

Another happy homeowner

Glenn Longstaff, from GSTRUCT GROUP, recently completed the building of my new house. To say that I am beyond thrilled, is an understatement. The build was completed within the allocated time frame and the workmanship is of the highest quality. Thank you GSTRUCT.

Glenn’s support, throughout both the planning and building process, was extremely professional and very reassuring. He is a straight shooter, doesn’t mess around, was upfront with everything and went out of his way to explain things clearly and concisely. Nothing was too much trouble.

Like everything in life, there were little hiccups along the way, but these were always handled quickly, professionally and with calmness.

If you are looking for a skilled builder who is focused on honesty, integrity, great communication, extreme attention to the smallest of details and the use of top-quality contractors then you can’t, and shouldn’t, go past Glenn. I’m 100% confident that you won’t be disappointed.

Should anyone need verbal confirmation I would happy to receive a call.

Another Gem from Sorrento

My house in Sorrento, was completed in 2014-15. It a large solid two storey stone house with a large living and dining area, five bedrooms with bathrooms , stone floor (from demolished chateau in France), four car garage, swimming pool, large water storage tanks internally, hydronic heating, etc., with a central stairway and dome and terracotta tile roof. It was designed by Rob Mills Architects.

Glenn Longstaff was Project Manager throughout the job. Although VCON was the building contractor, I relied upon Glenn during weekly on site meetings. Glenn managed the workmen on site very well and achieved a high standard of workmanship and no delays or problems. He recommended and discussed several variations as work was being done and each were good suggestions that have proven to be desirable improvements. He managed costs well. He was professional, open and straight forward to deal with.
