  • We approached Koru and were very pleasantly surprised at the professionalism shown by Koru and the way they immediately responded to our requests. We were provided with a weekly update and progress during the build and any issues identified were managed well. All of the Koru team were very polite, introduced themselves and were always applying themselves to the work. It was a pleasure to interact with them. In addition, they always asked our opinion about the work and if we were satisfied. Tony was helpful with all of our questions and gave good advice. We were allowed to be active partners during the building process which was important to us. We would absolutely recommend Koru to anyone considering a build especially for people who have an eye for details and want a really high-quality build. We love our house and enjoy living here.
  • We were delighted working with the Koru team, we found them responsive, flexible, and genuinely cared for our needs and kept us up to date every step of the way. This was our first time to build new, so we didn’t know what to expect. We were living overseas during the first phase up to lock up stage, Koru provided an app which allowed us to see the weekly progress through images and details of what had been completed. Once we arrived back in Cairns, we still had about 4 months of the build left and Tony was very patient with our frequent visits to the property and questions. Loved working with the team at Koru and would love to work with them again in the future if the opportunity arises. Highly recommend Koru Building for their patience, flexibility, attention to detail, and caring nature. They took care of all the small details and more!
  • Koru managed the project efficiently and with impeccable attention to detail. Their tradesmen could not be faulted. They worked long days and were honest and obliging, nothing was too much trouble. Their workmanship was of the highest order. We would be happy to recommend Koru to any prospective client and have done so already!
  • Koru was put forward by our building designer and we knew Tony had a leaning toward character homes. Tony presented as a person we could work with. Our build had many challenges largely due to space constraints and Tony tackled each issue proactively in a calm manner to get the right outcome. We are thrilled with the quality of the build and overall we enjoyed the building process. We would definitely recommend Koru to anyone seeking a builder.
  • We are very happy with the way our new house construction was managed. Co-ordination with all the services and overall supervision was good. It was enjoyable to be able to work with Tony, he has great knowledge!
  • After our first meeting, I was confident that Koru would build the home I want. Being in Brisbane had no impact whatsoever on the communication I had with Tony. I felt connected and informed throughout the entire process. Tony was a dream to work with. I couldn't be more delighted with my home - it's beautiful and I love it!
