Rivergum Building recently completed a major renovation of our home in North Ryde. The project covered almost all aspects of building work, including asbestos removal, demolition, basement excavation, addition of a new upper level, complete fit-out and landscaping.

Our project ran for nine months, during an extremely busy period for the construction industry. We were very impressed that Rivergum Building never missed a day (except one when it rained), and finished our project on time and within budget. We happily report that Arthur and his experienced and capable team completed our project with confidence, care and professionalism.

We love our new home, and we’re very pleased to recommend Rivergum Building to you for the following reasons.

Dedicated team: Rivergum are a relatively small and loyal team, who concentrate on one major project at a time. This means that they are focussed on your project and not stretched over multiple jobs.

Clear communication and Co-ordination: Arthur and his foreman Jake took the time each week at a dedicated site meeting to clearly explain their plans to us, discuss any issues and answer our questions. This also allowed smooth coordination of numerous trades and subcontractors, including those engaged directly by us.

Quality workmanship: Rivergum are very good at finding quality solutions and products that don’t break the budget.

Clever, thoughtful building: Arthur and his team have the experience to solve unexpected challenges that can sometimes turn up along the way.

We are very thankful to have chosen Rivergum Building for our home renovation and would happily choose them again and again. Rivergum were recommended to us, and we whole heartedly recommend them to you.

We engaged Rivergum to extensively renovate our home (first floor addition and major work on ground floor including new hardwood flooring). We are exceptionally happy with the results and the process. Arthur has built up a solid team that were professional and highly skilled. I highly recommend them to anyone considering a home renovation.

Communication is a standout with Arthur and the team. Regular meetings with detailed project updates and next steps.

Michael — Cheltenham

Rivergum’s extensions to our house have been built with care, professionalism and the whole process has been communicated to us through weekly meetings and a follow-up email. We have been kept informed, they have met all their deadlines and any issues have been dealt with promptly and satisfactorily. We would not hesitate to recommend Arthur and his guys at Rivergum for their quality workmanship, great communication and for being a company that values integrity, transparency and honesty.

We can’t recommend Arthur and his team highly enough. Communication was awesome, the guys were hard-working and easy to talk to, and the finished product was beyond our expectation. Nothing was too hard!

My husband and I contracted Rivergum Building for our big kitchen and family room renovation in our federation house in Eastwood. The project was extremely well managed, timely and to budget. Arthur and the boys were reliable, had excellent attention to detail and were always able to take the time to talk through and answer any questions we had. We are very happy with the finished product and would not hesitate to recommend them to others (and we have!). We even got them back to do our bathroom 6 months later!

Mal & Heather — Eastwood

Arthur and his team did a lovely job on our renovation. Everyone was really great to deal with. We stayed home throughout. The team all worked extra hard to keep the building site areas restricted so our young kids were safe.

Jackie — Balmain

Really appreciated Jake’s suggestions (eg: raked ceilings and drainage issues) to improve the outcome. Very impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail of all trades, especially Luke’s management of the build on site. Thanks to Arthur for running a business where employees felt valued and affirmed in their work. Good job all!!
