Wow!……..that’s what we were left with after our experience with Helleur Building. Peter and his team helped us achieve our dream outdoor space with their work on our deck extension.

Peter personally assisted in navigating the queries of a structural engineer on our design, the requirements of a private certifying authority, and even right down to providing practical advice on design and material selection.

The Helleur Building team always arrived on time and were well mannered and respectful. They kept us informed every step of the way and let us know about any changes to plan ahead of time.

We have engaged different builders over the years for work on our place, with the usual frustrations that many other people experience (trades not turning up, fixing poor quality workmanship etc). The Helleur Building team set themselves apart from the rest with their exceptional communication, attention to detail and quality of their work.

We would not hesitate to recommend Helleur Building to anyone wanting to bring their building dreams into reality

Peter Helleur has done a new build and renovation/s for me in Newcastle with outstanding results. Both properties presented significant challenges due to heritage considerations and awkward site conditions and access. 

On the first project I was able to trust Peter’s acute eye for detail and sound understanding of my style as well as his integrity and commitment to the brief. I was in Canberra at the time managing the project from afar and we worked together in person and over the phone to meet a fixed deadline. Peter kept me up to date with progress and ‘called with solutions not just problems’ as issues inevitably arose as they do with old houses. Peter also gently guided me to better outcomes at times where my ideas didn’t suit the actual situation and I’m thrilled with those suggestions. I live in a delightful contemporary open space integrated into an old and quirky 1885 terrace house. Light, charm and practicality converge and pay homage to original timbers and old bricks.

The second project had a tight timeframe and required liaison with a body corporate entity as well as the usual local government and building accreditations. A drab flat was transformed into a light filled and elegant apartment that literally now commands more than double it’s previous rental!

Peter works to a very high standard and is patient and good natured to work with. We had a laugh often and enjoyed the creative process together that is building and renovation. Peter often went above and beyond, clearly an ‘underpromise over-deliver’ ethos drives his business. 

I recommend Peter to anyone considering building work on any scale as his project management is efficient and ‘on the tools’ he is a perfectionist. He’s also a really nice fellow and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Peter is very professional and his communication was great & explained to me exactly what he was doing all along the way, arrived spot on time, and the quality of the work was excellent Peter and his team did a fabulous job & they left the work site clean and tidy. They also were very reasonably priced.

Highly recommend Helleur Building for all your building needs.
