'FIGR have worked with Grundella on various residential boutique architectural projects within the Melbourne metro area. During this time we have witnessed Grundella's remarkable attention to detail, management skills, execution of craftsmanship and an outstanding ability to communicate with the people around them.
Their ability to interpret and execute some of our more complex ideas have been nothing short of outstanding.
Grundella take their role as building contractors seriously and are passionate about achieving common goals between architects and our clients. Beyond Grundella's passion for driving performance, Clint Grundy is a natural leader and communicator, his meticulous manner and efficiency in problem solving is second to none.
I have the utmost respect for Clint Grundy and it is without hesitation and with the great pleasure I supply this character reference'

'Having received the keys to our 'new' home in Carlton North, Glenda and I wanted to record our sincere thanks to you and your crew for the courteous and professional manner in which you dealt with the many issues that inevitably arise during such an extensive rebuild.
This was especially appreciated when the opportunity was identified in the course of construction to include an attic that dramatically enhanced the livability of the home. Your coordination with the architect, engineer, building surveyor, etc. to make this happen with a minimum of disruption was impressive.
Our architect, Ann Rado, tells us she also enjoyed working with you and was impressed with the quality of your work and your attention to detail.
The result exceeded our most optimistic expectations! Selecting Grundella was in inspired choice - we hope that through "word of mouth" we can contribute to the future success that will surely come your way.
Please don't hesitate to refer any prospective clients to us - we would be happy to share our experiences.'

'I cannot speak highly enough about the experience of working with Clint and the team at Grundella on the construction of our new home. Grundella brought to life the inspiring design of our architects, Figr., and delivered a finished product that far exceeded our expectations.
The design called for a builder who didn’t take short-cuts, was able to problem solve, paid enormous attention to detail and was able to think outside the square. On a build that threw up many challenges, they were all traits that we came to know and trust from Clint, who was always there with advice and solutions, taking the time to clearly explain pros and cons before making sure that decisions were executed with precision and care.
Clint’s approach to the entire project was to treat the build as if he was building his own home and with a mindset that if it was worth doing, it was worth doing right. He was demanding in his quest to deliver the best possible product which meant that he paid attention to all those small details that we sometimes only appreciated much later, months after the job was done and we’d moved back in.
The finished product – which we appreciate more and more each day – speaks for itself, and we would have no hesitation in recommending Grundella to anyone embarking on a new build or renovation.’

'I had the pleasure of being introduced to Clint Grundy, MD of Grundella early in 2016 after a dishonest builder left me with stranded three unfinished townhouses one month before supposed completion. On inspection, each of these had major defects so I was stressed to my limit about finding a builder with the skills to be able to turn this disaster around.
Clint took over the building and project management and turned this nightmare into a positive experience. My three townhouses are now perfect! There are no defects and I am living comfortably in one as my home and renting the others out.
Clint and his crew was always professional, courteous and reliable. They always kept me informed of all progress and costs and every problem had a feasible and affordable solution. I always felt in control of the decision making process and Clint always went the extra mile for me.
Thanks to Grundella I have had my faith restored in the building industry and I hope to work with Clint and his team again in the future!'

'We’ve recently moved into our dream home and couldn’t be happier with the result - we’re still finding ourselves occasionally staring at each other in disbelief we now live in such a beautiful house.
After meeting Clint through family connections, he was with us from the start of the process after we’d decided on a full rebuild, connecting us with the guys at FIGR and working with us through design development. Clint put in a huge amount of work and earned our trust before we’d even had our plans approved, and his advice was integral in managing within budget constraints, but with an eye on not compromising the outcome. As with many inner city builds, we also had some difficult and challenging negotiations with neighbours, and his guidance and patient assistance greatly helped us navigate these.
Once the build started we found everyone at Grundella to be highly professional, brilliant tradesman, and importantly all great to deal with. With such a significant and stressful investment it makes a huge difference to have partners who you trust and enjoy working with. Clint in particular was a proactive communicator, ensured we were always kept up to date with progress on our house, and was honest and solutions focused when issues arose, as they inevitably do with something as complex as our house design.
We were also impressed with his attention to detail and exacting standards when it came to the way the house was built and finished. A combination of his pragmatism and his eye for design meant we were able to improve and optimise along the way, leading to an even better outcome than what we’d signed off originally.
Clint and his team were a pleasure to deal with and we’d have no hesitation in recommending Grundella to anyone interested in building an architecturally challenging house like ours. Together with our architects at FIGR they have created a magnificent house that not only looks amazing, but also functions perfectly for our busy growing family.'

‘This is our third new home and this time we were determined that this build would exceed our expectations in design and quality.
Grundella Constructions were able to come up with unique solutions to the many changes and challenges thrown up along the way by the architects and both my wife and I without ever losing sight of their goal.
The professionalism of your project team, not only in the quality of the build, but also in the way the neighbours were kept informed and up to date with any minor disruptions was exceptional.
We have been in our new home for four months and everyone that has been through, especially those involved in the building industry, have been very impressed in the design and the quality. The quality of your work stands out.
We love our new home and can confidently say that our experience with Grundella exceeded all our expectations.
A sincere Thank You.’
