To Whom It May Concern,
JR Glover Pty Ltd has completed the construction of a new home for me on the Hawkesbury River, Central Coast of New South Wales. The house has 3 bedrooms, a double garage and high level of finishes to my architectural design.
Led by Jim Glover they have completed the works to my absolute satisfaction. The works commenced in June 2016 and were completed in August 2017.
Jim has at all times been proactive in planning the project and resolving issues on site always ensuring the smooth coordination of various subcontractors and the adherence to a quality design.
As the architect of the house and the client my interest has been dual throughout the project. Jim and his broarder team have achieved my design vision working well with "the architect". In addition Jim's engagement with "the client" has always been professional, accurate and timely.
Jim established the project contract and has managed all costing and claims information thoroughly and professionally. Further Jim has liaised successfully with a variety of approvals authorities, subcontractors and suppliers ensuring that my expectations as architect and client were always met. Jim is an honest and ethical operator and his culture flows through to his often regularly used subcontractors adding an overall value to the final outcome.
I would actively recommend J R Glover to anyone contemplating using their services.

We contracted with Jim Glover for a recent major house renovation at Killcare. He was unknown to us, but had previously worked with our architect.
Whilst not the cheapest tender, Jim immediately impressed us with the careful detail of his quote, as well as his professionalism and experience. He was obviously an intelligent, honest and cheerful person whom we would like to work with. As we were largely absentee owners, it was important we had a builder we could feel very confident in.
Throughout the job, Jim was constantly informing us of progress, with updates on both cost and time estimates. He was always happy to make last minute changes and suggesting better ways of doing things.
His tradesmen were likewise all excellent in every respect.
We were on a tight time schedule to complete, and Jim delivered exactly on time and on budget.
The result was beyond all our expectations in terms of quality of outcome, with first-class workmanship throughout.
We cannot recommend Jim Glover highly enough.

To Whom it may concern.
JR Glover P/L (Jim Glover) has recently completed major alterations and additions for my client at Point Piper. Throughout the project they have been prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with.
Tradesmen and sub contractors were well supervised and courteous in a situation where the client was in continuous occupation.
The project was built within the contract period and on budget with no unexpected variations.
I would be happy to work with Jim Glover again should the situation arise.
We have greatly appreciated your professionalism and strong team work ethic.
We wish you and your team all the best for continued success.
JR Glover Pty Ltd recently completed a complex repair and restoration of our house and we would like to recommend the services of this company to any prospective client.
Our house was built in 1975 and is an example of the Sydney School of Domestic Architecture - houses that celebrated the unique aspects of their site and were built from natural materials including tiles and brick and timber.
We bought the house because of its architectural heritage and qualities of space and light and the way in which it sat within the surrounding natural environment. But after 40 years it needed extensive repairs and to be made more sustainable.
This was essentially a restoration project and it needed to be handled by a master builder who would understand how to sympathetically restore the house, while at the same time introducing energy efficient elements. Other builders that we approached were uncertain how to retain the building integrity or were deterred by some of the challenges of the site.
We were recommended Jim Glover by our architect and are so glad that we were able to work with him in bringing the house back to its best. Jim really understood what we were trying to do and had a great understanding and feel for the architectural qualities of the house.
He was also very impressive in the way in which he scoped the job, developed transparent budgets and managed the site. Jim and his team are highly skilled and the work was conducted extremely efficiently.
Jim was personally involved in the project and onsite much of the time and was very proactive and resourceful in finding practical, cost-effective solutions to any construction or technical problems. The work included the repair and replacement of the woodwork on one entire side of the house and the challenging task of restoring the glass roof with energy efficient glass. The quality of all the work is outstanding.
With Jim you get an exceptional builder, who works with pleasant and experienced tradesmen all of whom took pride in their work. There were no blowout on budgets and no unpleasant surprises.
It was a great experience working with Jim.
