  • Bronte was the project manager for the renovation of our house which involved the kitchen, pantry, laundry, main bathroom and walk in wardrobe. The wooden floors were all sanded and revarnished. The inside of the house was painted. We are very happy with the final result. She contracted and employed good quality tradesmen. They were well supervised and there were no major delays. When there was a problem with the wrong colour grout in the laundry, she personally removed it so it could be done correctly. Bronte also had the brilliant idea to set up our old washing machine outside so we did not have to use a laundromat. We received a damaged new washing machine and bathtub and Bronte fixed the problem. When extra work was needed this was dealt with efficiently and effectively with help of her husband, Tony. Bronte was always available to answer questions and deal with problems. Her knowledge of interior decoration was immensely helpful and produced a much better outcome. She made sure that the fixtures and fittings were ordered in a timely fashion. She dealt well with delays in plans from the architect. She was a joy to work with, she is very efficient and I highly recommend her for any renovations or new constructions.
  • Tony listened to my questions and concerns and he always responded immediately. Koru not only honoured the style of the old cottage but they built a new space which is contemporary and enjoyable to live in. The renovation has transformed my home and I really don’t think I would have achieved the outcome without the input and expertise of Koru.
  • We are happy with the total process of our building experience with Koru and Tony’s professional approach in his advice and making himself available throughout the project. Our experience was one of great expectations and we feel that the task was completed to our total satisfaction.
  • It was my first time doing bigger renovations and I’m thrilled at how smoothly everything went. Planning was excellent. Easy, no headaches, all questions answered and all minor issues resolved quickly. If you need someone reliable, understanding and with initiative to renovate your home, give Koru a call.
  • All the Koru team including subcontractors were professional, clean and a pleasure to do business with. Updates and communication were excellent through the build. Building with Koru exceed our expectations and we are really thankful we chose Koru.
  • Koru came with a very strong recommendation from a work colleague. We were always kept well informed of what was happening throughout the build…work was done to a high standard, the team were friendly and the site was always cleaned up at the end of the day. Thank you for making our extension feel and look like part of our home.
  • Tony was always contactable to answer any questions or queries which made the process a great experience! From start to finish it remained professional to our needs. Excellent workmanship and great communication. We would definitely build with Koru again.
  • We were recommended to Koru by Arrow Building Inspections. We were extremely happy with how the Koru team managed our building project and the quality of their workmanship. It was our first time building a dwelling and Koru were helpful and more than willing to provide advice and suggestions on design. We would most definitely build with Koru again as the completed build is better than we ever envisaged. They were helpful, insightful and professional from start to finish.
