“We had an overwhelmingly positive experience with Joe and his team to build a passive designed, off- grid house in the North Brisbane area. Joe was the only person, out of a group of 5 quotes that I sought, who insisted on meeting on site to really get a firm understanding of the physical environment in which he would be working. He asked a large number of questions and sought several clarifications before he sent a final quote. He encouraged me and my wife to talk to the owners of other houses that he had done work for if we had any concerns, and the people we did contact were very positive about the work that Joe had done.
With the 4 quotes that we received (one did not even bother to respond after taking our initial details) Joe’s was not the cheapest, but there is no doubt in my mind that any of the other builders would not have been up to the same standard. Joe was keenly aware of our financial restrictions and constantly involved us in the process of making compromises to get the building completed on time and in budget without undermining the overall quality of the build itself.
Joe was not only in constant communication with us he also kept all information up to date on our online build account. I honestly believe that Joe is a decent and down to earth bloke and all of his team were always approachable and friendly. I never felt like I was being mislead or details were kept from me and I believe that all of my decisions were well informed, largely in thanks to Joe.”

“Joe and his Scope Construction team completed a major renovation for us last year that involved closing in a deck, lifting the roof, relocating and refitting the kitchen and both bathrooms – completely re-configuring our home without changing its footprint on the land. He arranged all the necessary council and engineering inspections, upgrades and approvals, liaised with the architect and expertly managed the entire project.
Joe was on site frequently, working alongside his team. We asked for a number of variations to the contract, and Joe was spot-on with pricing them, and he was also still able to bring the project in on time. His advice was invaluable in helping us make those variations as time and cost-effective as possible.
Right from his very prompt quote – after waiting months for quotes from other builders which never came – it was a pleasure to work with Joe. He and his team were respectful of our entire property; our garden especially was carefully protected, as requested. We’ve since had Scope construction back to renovate our laundry, and as expected, he did a great job. The best thing though? Unlike other builders I spoke to, he understood our vision for our home and was positive and encouraging, right from the start. Thank you, Joe!”

“Joe has recently finished a full renovation of our home. It was our first experience building and renovating and to be honest we were a little nervous as you hear so many bad stories. However, we could not behave been happier with both the process of building and the end product. Joe was both professional and supportive from day one.
He and his team worked hard to build our dream home both on time and on budget. Each day the site was left clean and tidy. Our street had difficult access but Joe kept our neighbours happy by informing them in advance of anything that may impact them.
Joe is extremely organised and keeps you updated regularly on progress and decisions that need to be made.
His attention to detail is a credit to him. We are already planning our next project and look forward to working with Joe and his team again. We would not hesitate in recommending Scope Construction to anyone
Thankyou also for all the small jobs you did for me!”
Emma Taylor – Keperra
“Joe and his team recently completed an extension on our house and we could not be happier with the results. They have done an amazing job. Joe and his team are genuinely nice people who were extremely professional, very reliable, thorough and mindful of our budget. Scope construction were also very considerate of keeping a tidy work site which was much appreciated as we lived on site during the reno. They kept us informed of any changes, issues and the co-construct system he uses meant full transparency for the budget and timeline.
We can’t fault the attention to detail from Scope construction and we were also very happy with the work done by their contractors. Joe has a great team with a really good working dynamic. We have had a really positive renovation experience and would not hesitate to recommend Scope Construction to others.
Thankyou also for all the small jobs you did for me!”

“Joe Greenwood of Scope Construction has just completed a renovation. It was great to have a builder who listened to our ideas but also suggested other options and included us in the whole process.
We were both impressed with the high standard of his work and attention to detail as well as his reliability. It’s even better than we’d hoped. We would highly recommend Joe to others.”
Andrew W, Brighton QLD
“The thing that impressed me the most: Actually three things:
Communication, keeping me fully informed throughout the process.
Ability to deal positively with changes to the work, both in terms of being able to accommodate my requirements and provide good advice, costings and options.
Quality of the workmanship including that of your subcontractors.”
“Joe delivered a great job on my renovation. He kept me fully informed about progress, provided good advice and was really accommodating when it came to changes to the scope as the job progressed providing me with costed options at each stage. He was also really considerate to the neighbours ensuring that they were aware of what was happening. The quality of Joe’s workmanship was outstanding and all of the sub-contractors that he used were also excellent. At the end of three months the job was delivered on time and he kept me fully informed of the changes to the cost as the scope was modified during the build so that there were no surprises. Overall it was a great experience and I would certainly use him again and have no hesitation in recommending Joe to others”

What impressed me the most is how professional you were. Showed up on time, worked hard all day, were very particular on the neatness of the site, cleaned up every day. The build was perfect with great attention to detail and quality. Discussed every part of the project with us to make sure we were happy. The best tradesmen we ever had do work by a long shot.
Joe, Vic & I would like to sincerely thank you and Scope construction for the fabulous job you did building our Renovations.
I can’t put into words how happy we were with the job that you did. Not only did the final product far exceed our expectations in quality and craftsmanship which is almost non existent these days. The whole process was a joy, something that we have never experienced with any passed tradesman that we have had work on our properties. We really appreciated the professionalism of Scope, they cleaned up every day before leaving, were conscientious and respectful of our property.
Everything was done perfectly with a smile and no short cuts or compromises. I can sincerely recommend Scope, the price is good but the workmanship and professionalism is far beyond anything we have experienced before in the building game. Look forward to dealing with Scope again. ”
“We used Scope Construction recently and Joe was reliable, trustworthy and a genuinely honest, down to earth guy.
He let us know the whole way along what was going on and the end result was amazing! We have no hesitations in recommending his services and would definitely use him again.”
Dan and Katrina Wilson – Mango Hill QLD
“We have just had a major renovation to the inside of our home completed by Scope Construction with fantastic results. It is really good to have a builder who listens and actually goes out of his way to help you in trying to find the best way of doing things and finding the cheapest prices on materials and other tradies to fit in with the budget restraints we had. Joe was prompt and is very trustworthy. I would recommend Joe to anyone considering any sort of renovation.
S Begic – Bracken Ridge
“From the initial contact Joseph was professional and prompt, starting with the planning stage all the way through to the Handover stage. All costings were professionally compiled, and everything explained in detail. I found Joseph very understanding of requirements for the Granny flat which is for my parent and I found Joseph accommodated all requests in a timely manner. The end result was outstanding in finish and quality. I have built several homes and this finish is up there at the top. I will definitely be using Scope Construction on any future project including renovations. Thanks again Joseph and the team for an easy build.”

“Scope Construction built our dream deck. This is not just a deck, but something my wife and I spent a lot of time designing together with our architect and Joe.
During the costing phase we asked Joe to price a whole bunch of variations and combinations and he offered some really good ideas to save money while staying true to the design.
During the build Scope construction were exceptional! Always on time and the quality of their work was second to none. The attention to detail Joe exhibited during the design phase was central to his work during the build phase – really impressive. Our architect inspected his work and said he must be a “proud” builder and that sums up his work and customer service!
Our family can’t be happier with the end result and our experience with Scope Construction was extremely pleasurable. I have no hesitation in recommending Scope Construction… no hassle, no fuss and quality workmanship!”
“Scope construction did a major renovation on my house at the end of 2014. The quality of the work was outstanding, Joe was very flexible to changes I needed to make to the plan along the way. He was very helpful in making sure we stuck to budget. Every single aspect of the job and working with Joe was wonderful.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Scope Construction to anyone.”
SUE G – Wavell Heights
I was a first time home builder and I didn’t have a lot of experience in building homes. My home I believe presented a challenge, in that I wanted to retain as much as I could from my parents home but also create a comfortable retirement home in which to live.
The outcome achieved was new home but with a number of features of the old home which hold great sentimental importance to me. Joe very clearly helped me to achieve this. I don’t believe it was an easy outcome for him to achieve but I am very happy with the old / new home. I believe we were able to achieve, not only an aesthetically great looking home but one which also contained sentimental aspects. I observed Joe has excellent management skills with his sub-contractors on a personal level and also excellent communication skills.
Concerning the quality and detail of my new home, I have received feedback from persons involved in appraising homes that my new home is “WELL BUILT” and a “QUALITY HOME” with “EXCELLENT ATTENTION TO DETAIL”.
I would also like to include that I felt personally supported by Joe to achieve the vision that was my home even though, before he began the thought was daunting to me.
Thankyou also for all the small jobs you did for me!
