"I have known Nicholas Petroeschevsky for some 20 years, firstly as a building Foreman for John Speare Builder and more recently as the Principal of his own building Company, Petro Builders. At the outset let me say he is among the top 4 carpenters I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with in my 48 years involvement in the building industry as an architect. Not only has Nick proved to be a first class tradesman, he has also proven to be an intelligent, honest and delightful character complete with all the social skills necessary for a constructive involvement in the wider modern community. Over the years Nick has successfully completed a number of projects for which I have been the architect. All of the projects have been completed diligently, without fuss and beautifully finished. It really has been a joy for me to see Nick work and develop over the years into a Builder with all the skills who is, in my view, capable of completing major commercial projects."

From tender through to final certificate Petro Builders were an absolute pleasure to work with. The team on site and in the office never cut corners and were committed to delivering a very high quality project. They have a truly collaborative approach every detail was considered, improved and crafted. Our client could not have been happier with the entire build process and the final outcome was a win for architect, builder and client.

I have worked with Nick and the team at Petro Builders several times in the last for 5 years and in that time have found their behaviour to be professional, honest and refreshing. They are responsive to contractual obligations, provide supporting documentation when requested and interact well with our clients, consultants and team. They are solution-based and accommodating when working through alternatives and resolutions to any issues that may arise during construction. The level of detail and attention at the end stages of a project is exemplary and they have always sought to reach an outcome that exceeds our expectations. I would recommend them wholeheartedly for future work and would be happy to discuss this further if requested

I first worked with Petro Builders in 2008, since then Nick and his team have completed a least one project every year for my clients. During this time I have come to trust Nick and his project managers and I have developed confidence in their unique ability to deliver a project with passion. They bring traditional values to client relationships; they are professional, trust worthy, friendly, accommodating, competitive and above all, honest. Their highly skilled carpenters embrace high level detail; they have an excellent knowledge of the Queensland vernacular. They recently completed with sensitivity the complex conversion of SIMLA; the Georgian Revival heritage listed apartment building was converted into a small luxury hotel for the Spicers Retreats Group. The 14 month construction program was delivered on time and on budget. I enthusiastically recommend Nick and his team to all of my clients.

When we first began talking to our architects about builders to do our major apartment renovation we stressed that the important things were going to be price, of course, quality plus the personalities of the builders who would be doing our job as we were conscious of the impact our project was going to have on our fellow residents in the building. Nick and his team came to our initial meetings with all of the contract items organised and documented plus a good understanding of the dynamics involved and what would be required to keep everyone happy including us as clients and our neighbours. Nick appointed one of his site managers, Greg to be the lead go-to man on our job and we cannot sing Greg’s praises enough. He was an outstanding manager showing great care and attention to detail while getting the job done as efficiently as possible with a minimum of fuss and delay. He was a delight to spend time with and we felt he always had our interests at heart. With Nick overseeing the job and coming to site meetings on a regular basis we were pleased with the Petro team’s attitude and responsiveness to the job. We are truly delighted with the finished product and find it a pleasure to live here. We have no hesitation in recommending Nick and Greg to other clients.

Our Architect recommended Nick Petroeschevsky of Petro Builders tender our recent building extension. Petro Builders not only came in at a very competitive cost but also included a comprehensive and detailed plan for the job that we, as clients, could easily understand and follow. The decision to break away from our usual builder and go with Petro Builders was not a decision taken lightly. However the professionalism of Petro Builders was obvious from the get-go and we were most impressed. The challenge of running a busy health club during major renovation and extension work was eased with Petro Builders as the building crew were efficient, organised, courteous and aware. With outstanding attention to detail and excellent communication, Petro Builders responsively attended to our requests and questions always. Importantly, the build finished within the projected timeline and we were 100% satisfied with the work. We highly recommend Petro Builders.

My thanks to Petro Builders and especially Stefan Franke. You have been a pleasure to work with, Stefan your attention to detail is much appreciated and I know our neighbours are thankful for your thoughtfulness during the construction. It is hard to find a builder who invests so much time and energy into understanding and executing our vision and creating our home.

We have worked with Nicholas on many residential and commercial projects and In our opinion Nicholas is a competent builder with a sound knowledge of construction details for foundations, concrete slabs, block work, structural framing and tie-down. On site he works with our engineers to come up with creative design solutions to different building problems that are encountered along the way. In the years I have been working with Nick and his team at Petro Builders they have always displayed the highest quality of construction and have always been accommodating to variations in our designs.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Nick to our clients.
