A note to say thank you for your excellent work at Mallett Street.

I think we have been so lucky to find Sutech and work with you on resolving water issues here at the apartment block.

In both packages of work over the years you have carefully interrogated the issues and found us the right solution and contractor – and overseen works to deliver a quality result.

Thanks for listening, and always being so professional and friendly on every element of the project.

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.

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

Steve Bowen and Sutech made the impossible possible!

Steve and his team were able to successfully execute the complex remedial work required at 2 Lindsay St. This included full window replacement, asbestos panelling replacement with Cemintel Cement sheeting, and concrete spalling repairs over 9 levels and 36 apartments. Sutech worked harmoniously with the Strata Committee and brought the project to fruition, on budget and on time.

The result is excellent and a true win for the building and its owners.

I myself couldn’t be more grateful for all the work put into it.

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.

We have had the pleasure of knowing, and working closely with, Steve Bowen and his team at Sutech Ply Ltd on the $4M renovation of our 33 Unit building.

At the outset it is probably worth saying that our project was delivered on time and under budget!

  • New Roof & Sarking Etc.;
  • New Gutters & Downpipes;
  • Repair & Replace all Facias & Barge Boards:
  • Replace Eaves Boards;

  • Replace Brick Wall Ties;
  • Convert numerous Domed Archways into modern Square Archways around the building;
  • Cut-out & Rectification of extensive Concrete Cancer in the Balcony Slabs etc.; Rebuilding of all Balcony Slabs with associated Waterproofing. Tiling & New Glass Balustrades;
  • Removal of all Windows & Doors and Installation of New Windows & Doors; Rendering of the Whole Building;
  • Installation of New Internal Staircase Balustrades;
  • Installation of New Internal Staircase Fire Rated Carpet;
  • Installation of all requirements to bring building up to current Fire Compliance standards including Lights, Alarms, Building Alarm Panel, Fire Extinguishers, and Hydrant Piping etc.;
  • Installation of New Electrical & Data Cabling for the Whole Building;
  • Building Switchboard Upgrade;
  • Replace all Lighting;

  • Discussions & Negotiations with the Perspective renderers around Price, Deliverables & Timeframes;
  • In conjunction with the Committee, Selection of the Successful Tenderer; Presentation of the Recommendations to the Strata Annual General Meeting; Management of the Project;
  • Assessment of Completion by the Successful Contractor of all items including both fixed & variable costed items; and
  • Discussion & Negotiations with the Successful Contractor where the Contractor's perspective differed from the perspectives or either Sutech or the Committee.

Sutech were Instrumental in assisting the Committee to put together a successful tender process and present this to the Annual General Meeting which resulted in unanimous support for the project to proceed and for unit owners to contribute the project funds required within a very short time frame.

Whilst we are extremely happy with both the delivered project and the way it was delivered, there were a number of points during the project where, were It not for Steve and Sutech, we would have had considerable and serious difficulty resolving some issues with the Successful Contractor. Sutech resolved all of these potential difficulties to the point where both the Successful Contractor and the Committee were happy and satisfied. Sutech also provided great assistance to us on numerous issues during the project including identification of a Building Colour Selection Consultant.

We met with Steve and his Project Manager on a fortnightly basis to review progress, to discuss potential forthcoming issues and to make any decisions required. We found those

meetings to be professional, relaxed, well thought out and extremely productive.

We have found Steve and his team at Sutech to be a trusted and valued partner in our Building Renovation Project, with an ability to identify the salient issues, a capacity to ascertain the appropriate alternatives and solutions, and an ability borne of talent and determination to successfully implement those solutions in ways conducive to delivering our project on time and on budget. Steve and his team at Sutech are exceptionally competent, well connected, reliable, dedicated.

We would happily again work with Steve and his team at Sutech were such a need to arise In the future.

We wish Steve and his team at Sutech well in his future business endeavours and have pleasure in recommending him and his company.

I would be very happy to provide a verbal reference if required.  My telephone number is 0429-195-444.

Yours faithfully,

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
