The Building Co team were brilliant from the get go. Kendal was fully engaged with the vision, teaching and enabling me to be a part of the process. He really did go above and beyond. 

Every person involved in the project was master in their field, and you could see their skill in the attention to the details. I feel so grateful to Kendal and team for pulling off an outstanding build.

We chose Kendal Read and his building team for our 3rd renovation. It was definitely 3rd time lucky for us! Kendal is super organised and always readily available for a call. It was a huge relief not to have to worry about the plan knowing Kendal had it in hand. The quality of work was outstanding, even the building inspectors commented. I also really appreciated that when we encountered any design problems, Kendal would take the time to solve them, even providing drawings or other visuals to help. It’s like having a builder, architect and designer in one. We are thrilled with our new home and would have no hesitation in recommending Kendal and his team to others.

We chose Kendal and his team to build our dream home after we watched him assist another client through some challenging times they were having with a different builder. Kendal went above & beyond for this client, doing things that weren’t his responsibility, simply because he just couldn’t leave them in such a dire predicament.  It spoke volumes to me about who Kendal is as a person and how he chooses to run his company.

The home we had Kendal build was of significant value and was a culmination of years of hard work and savings so we were very cautious and deliberate in our choice of builder.  We needed someone who would treat our money like it was his, to respect how much of an investment this was for us and to care for us like he was building his own home.  We are happy to say Kendal did all that and more.

That is not to say that the build was without issues – a process of such magnitude inevitably has issues; the key is how they are handled.  Between Kendal and his team, we were always kept in the loop, treated with respect and felt totally informed throughout the entire build.  This is what sees us here today at the end of our project extremely happy with the end result and very happy to recommend The Building Co as a building company.

Kendal came to my rescue midway through a complex new build that the contracted builder had walked away from.  Kendal’s  knowledge and expertise turned what could have been a disastrous outcome for me into a beautifully finished high quality home that has attracted a good deal of very favourable comment.

Much of the work that had been done had to be redone, which turned out to be a blessing, as Kendal has a team of excellent professionals that he uses, who produced a result far superior to what had been delivered and deemed to be acceptable by the original contractor, but which wasn’t in keeping with the high-end build we wanted to achieve.

Kendal’s organisation and communication are superb. Despite the demands of managing a very successful and busy company he was always available to assist and offer advice, and his strategic forward planning avoided any of the down time that had previously been experienced.

Having experienced the worst case scenario, I have now experienced the best. Kendal’s calm and reassuring manner made working with him and his team very easy. As well as being a true professional, Kendal is a kind and compassionate human being who came to my aid when I didn’t know where to turn, and I owe him a huge debt of gratitude. Not only has he delivered me a beautiful house, but he has turned a very stressful experience into a pleasurable one and I can’t recommend him highly enough.

We recently did a major extension on our 1940s brick bungalow and, after tendering the project with four different building companies, we feel that we made a great decision in employing Kendal.  Throughout the process they were able to work well with our ideas while also bring to the table plenty of their own knowledge and flair to the project.  We found Kendal to be incredibly honest and hard working with an amazing team of professional builders and subcontractors behind him.  The project was delivered to us on time and on budget.  This was a very big project for us and was made an enjoyable experience thanks to the great team at The Building Co.  We highly recommend Kendal.

We chose Kendal to do our 1910 villa renovation in St Mary's bay from 3 different builders.

We chose him because we liked him and because he gave us a very detailed quote. This made us feel more comfortable because we had a definite budget and we didn't want any nasty surprises.
Kendal had great attention to detail and listened to everything we said.
We were fussy clients and he delivered on everything and always gave us the extra 10%. There were no dramas. We are completely happy with the end result.
