The Free Reformed School Association has a long-standing relationship with Alita Constructions. In the early days of the organisation they built several classrooms in one of our schools. In 2004/2005 they constructed the JCCC Middle School building as well as a new administration centre. During the GFC schools were allocated additional funding from the federal Government and Alita Constructions built three Sport Halls and school libraries in three of our primary schools. Just recently Alita finalised the construction of a new school in Capel. The South West John Calvin Christian College caters for 100 students ranging from Kindergarten to year 10. The site development including all services as well as the construction of 7 classrooms (some double storey), one workshop, a library, a staff and reception area and student / staff amenities started in January 2017 and was completed in October of that year. The end project is stunning and student, parents and staff are extremely happy with their new school. Alita was successful in this project amongst 6 other builders. Their contract price and the quality of their work was good. The number of variations was limited and the communication between builder, project manager and client was good. We also really appreciated the flexibility we had with Alita in relation to particular voluntary work provided by parents and the wider community. We would recommend Alita Constructions for your next project. See more information about the project here.

Alita did exceed my expectations as a builder. As superintendent, I expected a lot more issues through construction however it was more or less plain sailing, really easy to deal with. The building is really well finished off……. Watch the whole video testimonial here!      Chris, the Superintendent and Senior Structural Engineer for the Carpenter Mechanical Engineering project (Dialogue taken from video testimonial) So, I had a good opportunity to be involved from the very beginning of the project through to the very end. As well as being the son in law of the client, I was involved in the very beginning to engage in an architect to get some plans for a building application and then I am a structural engineer as well as project engineer so I was the lead consultant through the process and then I was involved in inviting tenderers for a tender phase, then evaluating tenders and then being the superintendent through the construction. Why Alita? Through to the tender evaluation there were 5 tenderers and Alita came out on top. Their proposed build time was excellent, which was delivered on time, the price was important but Alitas price didn’t include any hidden costs so we knew from the very beginning what we were up for. As well as that I have had the chance to work with Alita as a structural engineer in my day to day job so we had no hesitation in recommending Alita to the client. Experience with Alita Staff were very friendly and easy to deal with. Responses to any queries we had were dealt with very quickly, never failed to answer the telephone or respond to email within half a day. It was really good to have one site supervisor throughout the construction process. So always one person to deal with if you had any queries. Expectations with Alita? Alita did exceed my expectations as a builder. As superintendent, I expected a lot more issues through construction however it was more or less plain sailing, really easy to deal with. The building is really well finished off, the clients aim is to develop his business and grow the business, and to impress his clients and he’s very proud to show this facility off to his clients. Best words to describe Alita? I would say the words integrity and professionalism describe the way Alita operated throughout the duration of this project and we look forward to working with Alita in the future and supporting each other. How has working with Alita helped CME and how it operates? So Carpenter Mechanical Engineering are looking to grow their business and make the most of the opportunities in the market. This facility was delivered on time, on budget and with an excellent finish, beyond expectations, so this facility is going to support Carpenter Mechanical grow into the future. Would you recommend Alita? We would have no hesitation in recommending Alita Constructions to anyone else and we look forward to working together in the future.    
CME Testimonial, Chris Gibbs (Superintendent and Senior Structural Engineer)
They exceeded my expectations in many ways, first of all in the high level of engagement, the product that we were delivered was outstanding, the attention to detail was outstanding and the delivery of budget, in fact slightly below budget, was an awesome outcome for the Country Club. Watch the whole video testimonial here!   Byford & Districts Country Club, John Erren, Serpentine Jarrahdale Shire President Client Testimonial (Dialogue taken from video testimonial) –   Intro Alita Constructions was awarded the successful tender of the building of the Byford & Districts Country Club by the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale. There was a rigorous process that was followed in the tender process and within that process Alita came out on top as being the best choice to deliver this program and this product to the Byford & Districts Country Club and the shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale. It wasn’t about price it was about quality and delivery and time frames and in every way Alita Constructions, as I understand it, met those qualifications. The Alita Experience Throughout the process, my experience with Alita Constructions has been one of high level of professionalism, an enormous amount of quality of service and a really, really successful and outstanding outcome. Customer Expectations They exceeded my expectations in many ways, first of all in the high level of engagement, the product that we were delivered was outstanding, the attention to detail was outstanding and the delivery of budget, in fact slightly below budget, was an awesome outcome for the Country Club A Word to Describe Alita A word or a phrase that I would use to describe our relationship would be a partnership. So, from the beginning through the whole construction phase was a high level of communication, a high level of discussion and engagement and an ability to be able to have a voice and also get a clear understanding of where we are and what the pathway is to the next step. The project Experience The Byford & Districts Country Club couldn’t be on this location if it wasn’t for the relationship that was developed between Alita Constructions and the Byford & Districts Country Club. So, simply building our club house is how we’ve been able to develop a wonderful facility and a great outcome for our community and also a prosperous opportunity for Alita Constructions as they are now recognised as a significant and magnificent building company. Would you recommend Alita? For all of the things I spoke about before, quality of product, hitting price targets, hitting time frames, delivering the product on time, below budget and to a very high level of standard. What more can you ask for? The Alita Team In the early days, we had a strong dialogue with Ali, Ali was a significant contributor to the concepts and the ideas. When we came down to the construction phase we spoke and communicated with the team, which was predominately through Matt and Ed. Matt was always approachable and very easy to talk to and was always open to concepts and ideas. And Ed, nothing was too much for Ed, as the site manager, he had a high level of attention to detail and had a terrific point of view and a terrific attitude towards myself as the client and also the others that he had to interact with throughout the build.   Testimonial for Alita Constructions  from SJ Shire               Dear Sir Letter of Reference – Byford & Districts Country Club Project Alita Constructions were awarded the contract for the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale’s Byford & Districts Country Club project after submitting a competitively priced and strong tender application. Throughout the project, Alita Constructions continually made suggestions and gave advice to save costs, which was extremely helpful due to budget constraints. The team was always friendly and approachable and no request was too hard for them. Given that the project was to construct a Community Facility, it was great to see Alita Constructions using local trades. The teamwork between Alita, the local trades, and the Shire ensured the project was completed within the Shires tight time frame of 24 weeks as well as coming in under budget and without any major safety incidents. The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale is very pleased with the outcome and would strongly recommend Alita Constructions to anyone considering building a Community Facility.   Doug Elkins Director Engineering   All enquiries to Etienne Vorster

Alita Constructions have just completed our 1960m2 commercial complex on time and within budget. This is the fourth, large building (all over 1500m2) we have had constructed.  The previous three, by three different builders and this was the first building to be built without a hitch. Alita Constructions built the building to the standard originally promised.  In fact during construction they suggested improvements to the design always with cost in mind.  The building was built within the schedule and the quality was such that our leasing agents congratulated the builder on the quality which made it very easy to find tenants on our behalf. Constant communication occurred between us and Alita Constructions.  The staff were very approachable, polite and friendly and obliging whenever possible. Thank you Alita.  We have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone wishing to delve into the world of commercial building construction.  Check out the project here.

Alita Constructions would like to thank Paul Harrison from Beaver Tree Services for his glowing testimonial of the recently completed project in Forrestdale. The team at Alita Constructions thoroughly enjoyed working as a team with Paul and Joe and thank them for having the confidence in building with Alita.    (Dialogue taken from video testimonial) – Beaver Tree – Lot 21 Cartwright Drive, Forrestdale Clint Testimonial Beaver Tree Services My name is Paul Harrison, I’m the managing Director of Beaver Tree Services. We have been in business now for sixteen years. We generally do government tendered work and obviously a lot of private work, as well as residential work. We have got quite a few tenders that we do.   The Business Challenge? We were in three different premises over there in the Kelmscott Industrial area; they were smaller yards. I think we are about eight to ten times bigger here in shed space and office space. We were just growing and were on top of each other it was becoming sort of uneconomical to move vehicles and to move staff and the noise factor and I didn’t think it was a fair work environment for my staff.   Getting Involved with Alita? I have known Ali through the Business Armadale predominantly and known the family for a long time, they have been residing in Kelmscott for a long time. And coming from this area all my life I have seen a lot of Ali’s building and talked to a lot of people who have done work, and Ali’s work and done work for. I obviously got them to quote along with another company and obviously they were very competitive Alita Constructions and very pleased to be able to give them the job; which was great.   The Alita Difference? Again because you were local and very close to the construction site which gave us a lot more, we thought, supervision and management of the site. I had the confidence in a great team that Ali has created with Matt and Ed and everyone involved. Alita Quality & Service? With the land and everything we have spent over five million dollars so was something to be confident and wanted to get right so it was important. It’s a long process and quite a big job, and obviously a lot of plans and approvals that was fantastic right from the start. They took the bull by the horns, they pushed it through Council and the MRA where they could which was fantastic which took a lot of the pressure off me. Their knowledge of the area was very important, I think that was really great so that has been really good.  And obviously there quick build time was also that they had a reasonable time frame where they could start the building and they were obviously quite keen to get going. Would you Recommend Alita? Yeah definitely there is a lot of building companies out there obviously and I would definitely recommend Alita Constructions because again that the good feel and the fact that if we did have an issue or whatever that was quickly rectified. I think that is very important, the fact they took ownership of stuff very quickly and again the reliability, I think that is the important keys for me going forward. Those things I have tried to bring in my business. One of my mentalities is always under promise and over deliver and I think that what Alita did as well and I think that is really good. That unfortunately very rare sometimes in the world and to say it was an important decision being a big build obviously that we wanted to make sure that we got what we wanted and I think we have exceeded what we wanted really which is really cool. Would you build with Alita Again? We have purchased another block which is right next door to our current block, it kind of give a bit of a L shape it’s another acre. We will be building another building in the next year or two on that and we are looking at building another workshop but would definitely be comfortable and confident in getting Ali to obviously quote that job and do that job if that sees fit. We would love to have him on board because I think that we would be more than happy to use Alita Constructions for sure.  
Beaver Tree Services Testimonial,
Advanced Polymer Technology had the pleasure of working with Alita Constructions on the build of our state of the art polyurethane manufacturing facility. As this is the first time Advanced Polymer Technology had built a commercial facility, the process was quite daunting to us until Alita Constructions came on board. We had ideas of what we wanted to build but were unsure of how it all would tie together, with the help of Alastair and his team of professionals we were able to figure out a design that best suited our needs and budget. Once the design process was complete, Alita Constructions began building our facility which was a highly professional and easy process. Any queries we had were answered almost immediately & any issues were solved quickly. We were kept in the loop at all times and were told when major installs were happening so we could view them, which was fantastic and made us feel like we were a part of the team. Our build was completed within the specified time frame and budget. The handover process was quick and thorough and any post occupancy items are attended to quickly.  I would like to thank Alastair and his team for making the build such an easy and enjoyable process. With the high level of client service we received and the high quality of the build, we recommend them to all those looking at building.”

Dr Ivo Buters, owner of the Byford Medical Centre, shares his experience with Alita Constructions in a video testimonial. Watch it here! (Dialogue taken from video testimonial) – Byford Medical Centre – Lot 1 Blytheswood Avenue, Byford Client Testimonial Byford Medical Centre My plan is with this building is to enhance the existing services we have and to provide further quality medical services to the patients of the Serpentine Jarrahdale shire and in particularly around the Byford area. This project took about four years in the planning and I had a lot of time to sort of think about it and speak to a lot of people and to get a lot of ideas. And obviously I had to decide on a builder, so being a doctor I get to meet a lot of people on a day to day basis, particularly in the building industry and in building trades and repeatedly the name Alita came up. My final choice was to work with two builders and my final decision to go with Alita was because of their experience, their reputation and the price was very favourable compared to the other quotes I’d had. For me probably the most important was to get a quality product at a reasonable price and I think Alita well and truly delivered on that product and I’m very delighted with the outcome. The words I probably use to describe Alita Constructions; they were very open, trustworthy, my calls were always returned and replied and problems were solved fairly quickly and fairly succinctly. Yeah I would recommend Alita on quality of product, very fair price and a good reliable and efficient team and the construction project went very, very well.

Alita constructions were selected to build our facility from a short list of four construction companies 2 years ago. They were easily selected because of their very professional approach to every detail of the very difficult and challenging design and layout of our project. Their “can do” culture within Alita came through very early in our discussions which also included level headed costings and understanding budgetary constraints. The project was undertaken and completed within expected time frames and which also allowed for partial occupation while they very professionally worked around our day to day operations without any issues. This was very much appreciated and marveled. In the eighteen months it took to build this difficult facility it was an absolute pleasure to have been able to talk with any personnel from Alita and discuss queries if and when they manifested. From accounts through to the managing director everybody was accessible and were more than happy to apportion time to talk. Project management was impeccable. Alita built us a beautiful and functional building which we are very proud of and which is much talked about and marveled within the business community. I recommend Alita very highly to any prospective client of theirs who may be considering a building project. I will use Alita again for any projects I may have going forward.

We, as the building committee for the Free Reformed Church of Darling Downs, had the pleasure of working alongside Alita Constructions in constructing our new place of worship. The nature of the project, given the vested interest of each church member, was to ensure the project was built on time and within budget. Alita Constructions’ professional approach and unwavering commitment was a key contributor to the success of the project. Their ability to understand our requirements, keen eye for detail, willingness to allow flexibility and on site planning and initiative ensured we received a building of a very high standard that we and the local community are very thankful for. For these reasons we would not hesitate to recommend Alita Constructions to any potential clientele who wish to engage their services.
