"Very glad to have picked Brent and his team "

"Very glad to have picked Brent and his team to construct our new home.
From day one Brent kept us in the loop with regard to every aspect of the build, all with an easy going manner and common sense approach. He and his team worked with a punctuality and attention to detail to produce a result of outstanding quality which is rare to see these days. Best of all the project was completed on time and under the allocated budget.

Thank you Brent, I would not hesitate to work with Tuatara in the future as I know I will get the results I expect for my hard earned money."


Lennox Head

"Tuatara Construction were amazing! Highly recommend them. Nothing was ever a problem for Brent and his team. The professionalism, beautiful workmanship and attention to detail shown throughout the whole job by the construction team was of an extremely high standard. Thanks so much for our new home Tuatara Construction!!!"

Sara Davis

River Drive South Ballina

"I couldn't be happier with the renovation that Tuatara Construction completed for us. Loving our location, a renovation was the best outcome. Giving us the extra bedroom, ensuite and the second living space we desperately needed. We engaged Brent early in the design stage, his experience helped us formulate practical ideas and good design solutions on how best to use the space we had.  We are very happy with the finished product and would have no hesitation in recommending Tuatara Construction to anyone.
