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.

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.

It’s a joy to come in through our front door and see how beautiful the space is.

Every facet of our dealings with Tom has been made easy with Tom’s professionals approach to the design and preparations, through to the workmanship and the cleanliness of the site at the end of each day. Tom has undertaken a number of projects and the attention to detail is always there. We have many visitors to our home from the building industry who always comment on the quality of the workmanship.

Trust is always a key issue on any building project and we felt so comfortable with Tom and his team that we left him in charge of the house whilst construction was being undertaken whilst we traveled overseas. We have no hesitation in recommending ESP Developments to any potential customer.“

“This is the second time I have used ESP Developments. Their professionalism, their courtesy, their timeliness, their work ethics and their quality of work is simple outstanding. The fact that they cleane dup at the end of every day and left my house tidy and rubbish free – well that impressed me to no end – let alone they arrive on time every day. I cannot speak highly enough of this company and my next lot of renovations are only 12 months away and I will be using ESP Developments again!”

“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. He also solved many problems created by the poor design of the proposed structure. The work was (happily) completed within the time-frame set out.

Thomas arranged for all subcontractors (electricians, tilers, plumbers, concreters and renderers), who all turned up on time and completed the work in a very professional manner. We would not hesitate to recommend Thomas for any proposed work and are happy to speak to any potential client.”

“I contracted ESP Developments to undertake some construction work at my house in April 2010. This work included a structural slab and patio. The team at ESP Developments were at all times very professional in their approach. The work was of high quality and we were kept informed of the progress throughout the project.

Unfortunately it is not often that you receive such service from tradesmen who were honest, trustworthy and diligent. We could not have been happier with the outcome.

I would thoroughly recommend Thomas and his team at ESP Developments.”

“We have used ESP Developments a number of times over the past 20 years. The last job was a fairly major was an excellent job. Tom’s expertise is his ability to look at a project and come up with suggestions that you have not even thought of. Great staff and tradesmen in a fabulous family business”
