  • Hi Steve, On behalf of the Owners Corporation for 6 Bligh Place, Randwick, the Executive Committee would like to express our thanks for the excellent project outcomes that both Sutech and CRB delivered for our building. The projects works were both complex and of significant scale, and represented the largest ever capital investment by owners. In particular, we would like to recognise the project management oversight of Chris, who proved to be very diligent and knowledgeable in his field, as well as responsive to the ongoing concerns of residents. He has been a pleasure to work with and we would have no hesitation in engaging him again in the future. Also, we would like to recognise the efforts of Tony from CRM, who was equally meticulous in delivering high quality results and catered for the individual requests of residents as they arose. We have heard nothing but positive feedback from residents on the overall works (including several original detractors), which have transformed the building both structurally as well as aesthetically, leaving us positioned well into the future. Thanks again for your support. We would be happy to recommend Sutech to other potential clients in the future. Regards, EC, 6 Bligh Place, Randwick

  • Many thanks for your assistance in diagnosing the water ingress at the industrial units at Paton Place, and subsequent report by Simon. Following a new roof cladding on the units above, and a drain being installed in the roof top car park, the recent rains have proven your recommendations to be entirely successful, with no ingress into my unit below.   Without your assistance the managing committee would still think all could be fixed with a tube of silicone, and the root cause of the issue would never have been sorted out.   Regards, David Harrold Paton Place, Manly Vale

  • Dear Steve,   Leonie and I send our sincere thanks for the excellent work that you and your team undertook, firstly to accurately pin-point the source of troublesome leaks in our building, and for carrying out repairs that have effectively solved those problems!   The first leak occurred following the torrential rains Sydney experienced in April 2015. A second leak was encountered about a month later. From then on, water dripped into our apartment whenever we had moderate to heavy rain-showers. Months of frustration followed, as we dealt with several different plumbers and builders that had been appointed by our Strata Manager. All proved incapable of diagnosing the roots of the problems. We were very glad when a relative of one of the owners recommended a building remedial expert, Wayne Jenkins & Associates, as that company had been successful in another build in which he was involved. However, with their other commitments and the perceived size of the work, Wayne Jenkins recommended we contact your company, Sutech.   From the outset, we were immediately impressed with your persistence in locating the source of our leaks, and then devising an effective plan to correct faults that were made by the builders of our five-year old building and managing the overall project from the outset to its successful conclusion.   We were also grateful that you assembled a very capable team to undertake the hands-on remedial repairs. Here we acknowledge the excellent work carried out by Adam, Alex and Tom. I hope I have not left anyone out. They were very friendly, competent, trustworthy and sensitive to our needs, as well as those of the other owners.   And, Leonie and I, as well as the other owners, were absolutely thrilled when the work was completed and following several cyclonic-force storms, we found that not a single drop of water had entered our apartment!   We have recommended, and will continue to recommend your company to other owners in other strata buildings. Moreover, and on behalf of the Owners’ Corporation, I’d like to invite you to continue our relationship with Sutech into the future, commencing with the formulation of medium and long-term maintenance plans for our building. Yours sincerely, Julian Whichello

  • Dear Steve and Chris Just a note to thank you both very much for your wonderful assistance with our project at "Sheldon". The efficiency of the project and your incredibly pleasant manner has certainly made our life just so much easier. The only sadness I have is that we did not have you at the commencement of the project. Will certainly not hesitate to spread your names should I hear of anyone experiencing similar building issues. Catherine, Ben Boyd Road, Neutral Bay
