With over 39 years of experience in the building industry, Thomas Esprester, Founder and Director of ESP Developments, has seen his childhood dream grown into a multi award-winning custom home and renovation company. Thomas picked up his first hammer at age 2, and from the start of his apprenticeship at age 15, he has never looked back. From an early age, he observed his father and grandfather’s carpentry skills, learning about quality workmanship, unique design features and attention to detail. When he’s not helping clients build their dream family homes, he is spending time with his own family, camping, travelling and motorbike riding.

Established in 1988, ESP Developments has completed a variety of projects within Brisbane and South-East Queensland. Our company philosophies of professionalism and quality workmanship have been rewarded over the years with a number of Queensland Master Builders’ awards.

Driven by passion and professionalism, the skilled and experienced team at ESP Developments know how to create unique custom homes and execute major renovations, all built with high quality designs and finishes.

Tom is one of those rare people with intelligence, attention to detail, and incredible people skills, always putting his clients first. ESP maintained open and effective communication, working hard to overcome challenges in construction, making nothing seem too difficult. Tom and the team worked hard to find solutions to problems, as they arose, to ensure the best outcome. He is backed up by a wonderful team of subcontractors who are hardworking, reliable and respectful. The team worked hard for us to make sure that every contractor on site worked to the same level of detail and quest for perfection.

We contracted with a patio company to redo an existing structure and Thomas was the builder recommended to do the extensive work involved before construction, which included demolition of an existing structure and extensive work in preparation for the new patio We found Thomas’ work excellent and done promptly with good humour and grace.

From the initial design phase through to job completion, the service and professionalism of Tom and the ESP Developments team has been exemplary. We are thrilled with the result. ESP provided us with a combination of patience, expertise, professionalism and care. The attention to detail in finishes was a strong point, with a particularly high level of craftsmanship in the number of timber projects throughout our internal and external design. They genuinely cared about providing high quality work that they could be proud of.
