To Whom It May Concern,

I worked with David Lombardo of North Residential Constructions as the builder of major alterations and additions to a residence at 121 Victor Street, Dee Why.

Richard Cole Architecture designed and documented the project, which was completed in 2010.  Construction required major renovation of the existing building including demolition of the majority of the existing brick building, excavation for a swimming pool, construction of a boundary retaining wall, a two storey timber and masonry construction with steel and timber framed upper floors and a steel and timber framed Colorbond roof.

The building features a tectonic design with a façade combining natural materials such as sandstone, hardwood cladding, galvanized miniorb, hardwood sunscreens and a generous, sheltering skillion roof.

North Residential Constructions proved to be professional, organized and conscientious builders throughout the project.  David Lombardo and his team displayed an enthusiasm and dedication to their work that is rare in the construction industry.  They have an excellent team of skilled and professional sub-contractors and maintain a happy and well organized site.

I found the workmanship at 121 Victor Street, Dee Why to be of a very high quality.  David showed a strong understanding of the design intent and was dedicated to the resolution and implementation of fine detailing.  The construction was completed in a timely manner.

North Residential Constructions showed a high level of expertise including a broad and up to date knowledge of building techniques, materials and methods.  They maintained rigorous levels of quality control throughout the project.  David is a pleasure to deal with and is always well mannered, courteous, calm and professional.

I have no hesitation in supporting David Lombardo and North Residential Constructions and would hope to be able to use them on future projects.

Yours faithfully,
