Marie from Glenelg
“I can’t recommend G-Force enough!!! They have been extremely professional from start. From helping with ideas and designs for our renovation. Keeping up great communication through out the construction stage so we knew when everything was happening. All the staff in the office and the tradie’s on site have been a pleasure to deal with. Plus the quality of the work is second to none. All in all making our renovation an exciting and pleasurable experience. Thanks again to all the gang at G-Force!!!
Craig of Dernancourt
“As the last details of the Law Building project are concluded I just wished to note to you the very helpful & open working relationship that James and Colin brought to the task. It has been good (and productive) to have a working relationship which was flexible, open and frank at all times with our main contractor, and their customer service to me as project manager and to the occupants of the very busy building has been a crucial factor all the way through. I know they have put a lot into the job. Colin’s reputation as a good and conscientious operator quietly preceded him through the grapevine, and James has cemented his own reputation through the process. I believe you would get a similar comment from the occupants of the Law Building. G-Force clearly have an understanding and a feeling for heritage building renovation.”
