It gives me great pleasure to recommend Sydney Building
John Colet School is a multi-faith, co-ed, independent K-6 school, located within a peaceful bushland setting in Belrose, on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.
In 2021 the School embarked on a major construction project consisting of two classrooms, a purpose designed Art room, undercover learning and play area, and surrounding works including a new playing field and landscaped area.
From the very beginning SBP were keen to work closely with our school and understand our unique environment, both in terms of the physical landscape and with regards to our staff, students and the learning environment.
SBP worked to ensure minimal disruption to our regular school program and were often proactive in bringing up considerations and solutions as different stages of the construction were planned.
The period in which this construction occurred was across one of the most difficult for the construction industry in Sydney. COVID restrictions was having a major impact on the labour market, shipping delays and rising costs were resulting in rising material costs, and there was the unprecedented wet weather.
Our contract was of a fixed price with SBP and at no time did they pass on increase costs as a result of the conditions mentioned above, unless these had been agreed to or there was an alteration to works agreed to by the School.
Throughout SBP were unwavering in their commitment to bring this project to fruition and that it be of the highest quality. We have no hesitation in recommending SBP as a builder of choice.
