What Our Clients Say

  • " I thank the entire CMW team for a professional and stress free construction.
    This is the 2nd construction we have done with your Team and both times it has been a pleasure to work with you all.
    I would highly recommend you to any prospective customer."

    John Maguire


  • " As you know the project was delivered on time and on budget. There were no major issues for us to discuss and I believe that this is the outcome of good early planning, experienced golf course project management and most importantly a competent and professional construction company. "

    Mark Riddell

    Chair LMMF Committee

    The Royal Melbourne Golf Club

  • " Their honesty is without question. If there’s ever any issues post completion they’re always quick to sort it out.
    They’re excellent builders … highly accessible and responsive. We simply have a great deal of trust in their work. The kind of people we like dealing with and we have no hesitation in recommending them. "

    Trevor Gorman

    Managing Director

    McMullin Group

  • " Thank you for your fine effort and performance of delivering the project on time and quality end product. "  (Fitzgerald Road Hardstand, completed 2023).

    Victor Rudewych

    Mimivic Group

  • " We’re very happy with them. This is the second project we’ve done with them – and after the experience of the first we went straight to them for the second.
    We’ve done a number of projects with other builders and the two things that can drive you mad in a building project are getting things done on time on the costs of variations. They finished our first project on time and it looks they’ll finish ahead of schedule on the second. That’s very rare in Victoria. And they’re very professional and reasonable when dealing with variations. They’re also very good at dealing with council issues.
    Project managers are always on site – always available and in contact day-to-day. They’re good, professional people and we’ll definitely use them again. They just make things so much easier. "

    Hugh Bayford

    Bayford Group

  • " I can’t speak highly enough of them. They completed the extension of our warehouse with no interruption to trucks or deliveries. I’ll be doing another project with them. They’ve kept us in the loop and up to date every step of the way.
    Dealing with them is virtually trouble free. "

    Brian Durran

    Managing Director

    Duresta Pty Ltd (Furniture Galore)

  • " Even in the earliest stages, they’re extremely innovative … always coming up with good ideas and suggesting ways in which a building will work more efficiently or be built more economically.
    During the building stage their lines of communication are excellent - so they’re always prepared to be flexible when it comes to dealing with changes and meeting the client’s needs.
    We’ve done over 20 projects with CMW and they’ve always been on time and on budget. We would have no hesitation in recommending them. "

    John Purdey

    Development Director

    McMullin Group

  • " They’ve recently finished a major project for us – a fantastic development, with little, if any overruns, hassles or other problems.
    The project was finished in time for our season and the quality of the building looks good. I would be happy to be a referee for CMW going forward.
    We’ll be using them again for a major project in Geelong. "

    Ray Frost

    Managing Director
