Sculpture on Clay Hair Salon, Coorparoo

The guys from CP Cowie Builders were exceptional right from the start. We needed to combine our personal living space with our home business and Phil and his team sat down with us to devise a brilliant solution. From the concrete slab to the door handles we were consulted on every aspect and are absolutely thrilled with the result. We are constantly complimented on the design and quality of the construction by our clients and we couldn’t be happier with the way the build suites the brief we presented. If we had a query or request there was always someone personable on the other end of the phone and it was never too much trouble. In all, a stress free and satisfying experience.

The Victory Hotel, Brisbane (Precision Group)

Precision Group is the owner of The Victory Hotel Cnr Edward and Charlotte Streets, Brisbane.

In mid 2008, The Victory was significantly damaged by a major fire which destroyed approximately 40% of the hotel.

C.P. Cowie Builders were retained by Precision Group through our insurers to reinstate The Victory in the original style and finishes sympathetic to the 150 year old establishment.

The writer was the State Asset Manager for Precision Group and oversaw the works.

C.P. Cowie Builders project managed and undertook the construction post fire cleaning. This entailed taking all damaged timbers and finishes back to basics and rebuilding from scratch.

These works included Basement integrity works, flooring, ceilings, upper level flooring, roof trusses and cladding together with all associated electrical, plumbing and full replacement of air conditioning system works.

Precision Group and our insurers were (and remain) eminently satisfied with the works carried out by C.P. Cowie Builders and we do not hesitate to recommend them to any prospective client seeking excellent work, integrity of application to the project and competitive pricing.

We finished this major project within the proposed time-frame and on budget.

The writer is happy to take any calls for personal reference should the need arise.

Champ Kitchen and Bar, Southbank

Within two months of completion, Champ kitchen and bar has appeared in three national magazines, five local publications and three local newspapers as well as countless websites and blogs.  South Bank Corporation and the Australian Broadcasting Commission have both given high praise for the fit out and design as beautifully complementary to the building architecture and surrounding precinct.

Your work in managing the project and solving design issues was spectacular – I knew I was in safe hands from beginning to end.  Thank you, Phil.
