We just want to thank you and your fabulous team for such careful attention to the refurbishment of our home. 

It was a pleasure working with you and your team ...Friendly, efficient, responsive and professional. Your attention to detail and process was tremendous.

Testament to the quality of the craftsmanship is that we have now been in our apartment 6 months without fault or defect. We are very happy. 


My experience of working with various builders and associated tradespeople over the years allows me to fully appreciate the quality of your work. 


Thank you again, I would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends or industry colleagues."

"Dear Adam ,

The Owners Corporation would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the work undertaken on our apartment building. 

The project has a been a massive success and all owners in the building are regularly complemented on the quality of the building refurbishment.

The professionalism of your team, quality of the workmanship and general approach to managing the process was outstanding. 


Heading into the project there were concerns regarding the impact of the works on the general amenity in the building considering access would be required to every apartment. You and your teams conscientious approach to our concerns and management of the process was greatly appreciated."

"Dear Adam,


We are extremely happy with the remodel Adam and his team did on our bathroom and laundry renovation. Right from the beginning Adam explained everything to do with budget and contracts and took care of everything for us, from the design to demolition and hiring the trades. He was able to create an amazing space that before was not practical and could barely fit two people. Now not only are the bathroom and laundry beautiful and spacious but they are now practical and functional and Adam helped us stick to our budget. 


Adam and his team as well as all the tradesman were extremely neat and tidy, cleaning up after themselves at the end of each day and they were also professional and respectful of the fact we have a toddler.


Adam made our first experience of a renovation very easy and stress free. I had complete trust in any decision he made and also leaving any of his tradesman in my house on their own. He went above and beyond to make sure that everything was completed perfectly and even patched up our wall that was previously water damaged.  I can't thank Adam and his team enough for the amazing work they did for us. We have and would recommend him to anyone who wants to do a renovation.”

"The bathroom would be the hardest working and most complex room in any house. Ours was a 27 year old bathroom that required more than a basic renovation. My wife and I struggled with where to start but fortunately engaged Souter Built to do the job for us.

Adam at Souter built is a passionate young builder with a good eye, attention to detail and some great ideas. Who needs an interior designer when there is Adam.

From demolition to completion Adam and his team were always obliging and cleaned up at the end of each day. All of the trades that he used were like minded with attention to detail.

The job concluded as expected in both time and cost. Great job we would not hesitate to recommend Adam and Souter Built to anyone considering renovations."


Dale & Kathy

"It was a pleasure working with Adam and his team. Not only is Adam a very trustworthy guy, he is super professional and from day one we felt our renovations were in good hands. 


Adam and his team did a great job in removing our wall and building our amazing Kitchen bench and always made their best to ensure they kept our house livable and tidy while the work was being done. 


Adam was on top of everything and also assisted us dealing with other approvals required for the work to be completed and managed to complete the job within the promised time-frame. They always cleaned up after the day and it was great to come back from our holidays to have the work complete and be able to not worry about it while we were away. 


We definitely recommend working with Adam and we will definitely be working with him in the future."

He has collected around him like minded trades people at the top of their profession who share is dedication and vision.

I have no hesitation in recommending Adam for your building project-large or small. You will not be disappointed with his exacting standards and first class finish."

"We recruited Adam from Souter Built to project manage work on our home that included structural repairs such as underpinning our home, custom built gates and a full bathroom renovation.

Adam was instantly likeable and provided us with estimated costs that were accurate. He managed his team’s time to ensure all of our deadlines were met.

We are extremely happy with his team’s workmanship and would recommend Souter Built for all building work. We will not hesitate to use them again."

"Souter Built show a great understanding of the quality workmanship that is required to produce an outstanding build.

Their team are able to focus on the detailing execution with each trade being of the highest of excellence. I have been particularly impressed with the standard of finishing detail. 


They have had no trouble being able to interpret detailed Interior Design plans and specifications which we have supplied to them. This has enabled my projects to come to full fruition from concept to completion."

I was approached by Adam to make a pair of staved columns for a project he was building in Sydney, the work immediately got my attention. The experience from the outset of making and installing these was nothing short of pleasurable. Adam and his team are organised, punctual and  completely professional. I would have no hesitation in engaging with them again on their future projects.

We have worked with Souter Built on two different renovations in 2018, one in a small 1940’s apartment, and another on our family home (a recently renovated cottage dating from the early 1900’s) and I can’t rate them highly enough. 


Throughout the projects Adam and his team maintained open communication on the schedule of works and progress. 


We were not onsite for the renovation of our apartment, but received continual updates and photos throughout, and did a comprehensive walkthrough on completion. 


We were living in our family home whilst the renovation took place, with two small children…. Adam’s team were incredibly flexible and carried out all of the work they did with the needs of our young family in mind.



Their attention to detail and craftsmanship was absolutely amazing, especially with some of our more unique design features. We particularly appreciated the time they took to think of alternative solutions, no problem was unsolvable!



We are incredibly happy with both renovations and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Souter Built to anyone. We will definitely be using them for any future projects.

"Souter Built responded quickly to my request for quotation and provided a detailed proposal for the works on my mother’s new house.

The bathroom needed to be re-designed and built and improvements made to other parts of the House..

I was especially impressed with their proactive approach to solving problems. They had answers!

Souter Built are reliable and work to an agreed schedule, They coordinate the work flow seamlessly and on top of that, their work is excellent. They are proud of what they do.
Their attention to detail is beyond reproach. They are polite and courteous and clean up after themselves. Mum is thrilled with her new bathroom and new living room. 

I will certainly ask Souter Built to quote on future work. I highly recommend them."

"Adam Souter and his team from Souter Built completed a difficult renovation of our old terrace house that has resulted in a beautiful home.
The workmanship and finishes were excellent and Adam and the team was terrific to work with. They were always available to consult and confer with and to make suggestions ensuring we would achieve the result we were after. I have no hesitation in recommending Souter Built for your project."


Tracey Campbell

“Adam and his team took our plans, ideas and thoughts and restored an aged terrace into our dream home that we never want to leave. Great care was taken to protect the history and charm of the building and modernise it in a sustainable and considered manner. Our relationship was based on transparency and collaboration with great attention to detail. Adam wanted to always say yes to us but had the insight and authenticity to know when to say no. He was very accommodating of our numerous requests and changes. We were tough clients as we wanted the best home for our family. We got that from Adam and his team.“

"Adam and the Souter Built team renovated our heritage house on a tricky site. The quality of their work and site management was exceptional. We also appreciated Adam’s advice on how to maximize the house’s thermal efficiency following passive house principles (we recently had a large group of friends over on a day well over 40, and with just ceiling fans were more than comfortable). The team were professional, thorough, flexible and worked with us and our architect to build our dream, and were happy to provide us with advice and guidance over and above what would be expected.  We would not hesitate to recommend Adam and the team to anyone with a heritage house, or a builder who believes in quality and the ongoing performance of the house, long after they leave the site."
