As we were undertaking a very large project with our new warehouse facility in Forrestdale, had a very tight schedule and a budget to work to, we needed a professional builder who we could rely on to deliver as promised.
After many hours of discussion with 5 different builders, including others who we had used in the past for other warehouses, our company decided on Alita Constructions and we feel we made the right choice.
We had been put into a spot by another builder who had charged us for the drawings and then was to re-imburse us for this cost if they got the job. The drawings took much longer than promised and there was a number of grey areas which we were uncertain about and we didn’t feel totally comfortable with the design. After consulting other builders and getting some very possible feedback from other clients who had used Alita in the past, we decided to approach them.
We had an initial meeting with Alistair Kleyn and explained our situation, budget, time schedule & the predicament with the drawings. He was extremely helpful and offered us professional advice which would save us money. He directed us to Mulder and Kampman Design who worked very quickly on our drawings to fix the flaws that existed and produce a more cost effective design. We then put the amended drawings out to tender to several builders and had a meeting with each one to discuss what they could offer us and if they could meet our time constraints. Alita to be honest were the only ones to quote us exactly as per the drawings with everything included, with others quoting and missing out key components to try to save them money. Alita quoted with the client in mind and were very accommodating when we asked them if we could use some of our contacts for certain aspects of the project. The end result was the project was done in a very cost effective, professional manner within the time constraints of the contract and we ended up with a quality building which we are very happy with.
Alita were in contact with us constantly throughout the course of the project and any minor problems that have occurred after completion that needed fixing within the last 12 months, they have been quick to rectify. I would like to extend a big thank you to the entire Alita team for their professionalism and the way they handled our project from start to finish.
I would be more than happy to recommend Alita Constructions over and above other builders who we have used in the past, to any potential client who is looking for a honest, reliable & professional builder who will work with you to deliver what you require when you require it.
