Building our dream home

We would like to share our experience of building our dream home with Shane and his Tangara Constructions Team.  My wife and I had always dreamed of building our own home, so that we could have exactly what we wanted.  Like most people who build first time, all we heard were horror stories and all the reasons why not to build.  Then we were introduced by a mutual friend to Shane Dennien, owner of Tangara Constructions.  

We had already spoken to two other builders and had become despondent with the lack of flexibility, and their resistance to build anything other than their set designs.   However, these feelings were dispelled after our first meeting with Shane.  His ability to listen to what we wanted, to advise us in layman terms that we could understand was second to none.  Shane guided us through every stage from initial consultation, to design, the building process and right through to hand over.  We knew exactly what the build was going to cost us, and he was always willing to discuss any changes we wanted to make.

Probably the most impressive aspect of working with Shane, was that he was constantly contactable and if we needed a site meeting, he always made himself available.  All of these points made the building experience seamless and one that we certainly don’t regret.  The result being that we are now happily settled in our dream home that Shane and his team of amazing tradesmen finished for us bang on schedule, and to an extremely high standard with beautiful finishes throughout.

The highest compliment we can pay Shane is that we have had endless inquiries from passers by asking who our builder was and complementing us on the house. 

If you’re thinking of building, we would strongly recommend contacting Shane and we are sure that you will be as happy with the result as we are.  

Thanks again Shane and the Tangara team, we are so happy with our new home.

Five Townhouse Build

I engaged Mr Shane Dennien from Tangara Constructions to undertake the build and delivery of 5 Luxury Townhouses in Mount Gravatt (QLD) with end value of $3.25m. Mr Shane is easy to work with, an experienced professional and hands on. He went above and beyond in many aspects, including providing valuable feedback on the finalisation of the design to achieve better value and outcome. For me it was imperative that there was no hidden costs or unwanted surprises at the end. That‘s why I choose Mr Shane as I found him to be a fair and honest builder in all our dealings. He goes out of his way to ensure there is no confusion, with Mr Shane nothing was too much trouble. You always get a same day response to your questions. Importantly, I also found Mr Shane’s team of tradies professional and experienced. Overall doing a build of this scale is complex and challenging but having Mr Shane as builder makes a big difference. I can recommend Mr Shane and Tangara Constructions without hesitation. You will not be disappointed.

Great communication and customer service

Well done and many thanks for your consideration. It was a pleasure dealing with you throughout the whole project. We feel we were so fortunate to have you as the builder. Your professional approach and the attitude and helpfulness of your team made having a development going on a dream and not a worry. Your tradies were all so nice to us and always so considerate of us. We were treated very politely at all times.

Thanks so much for all your efforts. We both wish you well in your work and future projects and would have no hesitation in being a referee for you. You deserve to be congratulated on great communication and customer service which is sadly lacking in a lot of business today.

Thanks again for everything.

Attention to detail

Our experience with Shane from Tangara Constructions was fantastic and we are thrilled with the finished product. Shane uses the old principles of building that trust is a key point to any process. Shane’s ability to translate builder’s terms into lay person’s language is a valuable asset to have! Shane would not just say anything and expect us to understand, he would make sure that Donna and I both understood exactly what was being discussed before continuing on.  This easy communication helped turn a house into our home.

What builder would meet a potential client at a proposed piece of land, to discuss building options, before they were considering purchasing it.  When Donna rang Shane he requested to meet her at our block to see if he thought it was possible to build a home on it.  Shane would always go out of his way to accommodate us as we both worked. Meetings were quite often scheduled at night and on weekends.

Attention to detail was what Shane made sure was evident throughout the entire building process.  He made sure that no imperfection was left overlooked, no matter what it was.  He would have it fixed as soon as it was noticed. He regularly rang us with the building progress, to keep us in the loop, which was brilliant as we would keep each other updated as to possible problems or any changes that we required.

We would not hesitate to use Shane from Tangara Constructions again and would recommend him to anyone.  Shane gave us a stress free building experience that has given us not just a house but a warm home to live in!!

Commitment to using sustainable products

We recently had our new build completed by Shane and his team from Tangara Constructions. Of several builders we met with, Shane was the only one who took the time initially to talk us through the building process, answer questions and provide constructive feedback on our plans. Shane’s personable and genuine nature, along with his commitment to using sustainable products was a big plus for us.

Throughout the build, Shane kept us informed with timely updates on progress and was extremely vigilant with scheduling and budgeting, resulting in our home being finished on time and within budget. Despite the considerable amount of driving from his home to site, Shane was also very hands on during the build! For first time ‘home builders’ such as ourselves, this, as well as the knowledge passed on to us was very reassuring. The high quality workmanship and professionalism of Shane’s carpenters and other tradesmen has resulted in a quality, value-for-money house which we are proud to call home.

During our dealings with Shane, he consistently demonstrated integrity, not something often said about builders (!) and we highly recommend engaging Tangara Constructions to complete your renovation or new build.

Returning Customer - 6 Bedroom Luxury Home

This is second time we have engaged Mr Shane Dennien from Tangara Constructions. On this occasion he delivered a 6 bedroom luxury house in MacGregor (QLD) with an end value of $1.75m. The result was an outstanding property that was featured on Channel 9 news. Mr Shane’s positive attitude makes what can be a challenging process manageable and enjoyable. We choose Mr Shane again as he provides valuable feedback and when something won’t work he will tell you but he also always has options, alternatives and work-around to solve the issue. Mr Shane Dennien and Tangara Constructions are always contactable, even after hours, and not once did they fail to meet an agreed deadline. You can trust that Mr Shane will deliver a great project. We highly recommend him and his team.

Building our first dream home

As a young couple, building our first dream home, Shane and the Tangara crew made our experience a very positive and stress-free one! Shane always explained every part of the process clearly and never hesitated to answer the countless questions we had.

From our initial meeting, he was the only builder who showed enthusiasm and a willingness to meet with us on our block to discuss details before providing us with an accurate quote. His genuine and honest demeanor made our decision very easy. This was the point when we knew that we had to have Tangara Constructions build our new home.

Throughout the process, Shane was able to overcome every obstacle and nothing ever seemed too hard. He was prompt when providing us with information and he was extremely helpful in each stage of our decisionmaking. The level of professionalism and workmanship was consistently of a very high standard, which is a credit to Shane and the entire Tangara team.

We were very fortunate to have found such a dedicated and skilled team that pride themselves on providing a quality finish to all aspects of the building project. It was a pleasure sharing the experience with them, and if we were to ever build again, there is only one builder we would use! We definitely recommend Shane and the Tangara team to anyone. Thank-you for literally bringing our dream to life…our new home is beautiful- you legend!

Faithfully realize the architect’s intentions

We are delighted to recommend Tangara Constructions, as the ideal firm for your design and build project.

First and foremost, you will be working with a builder who is very experienced and a person of integrity, who does what he says. If you are starting off with a completed architect’s plan, he will faithfully realize the architect’s intentions, fully involving all parties in any problems as they arise. Shane helped us through the design process, turning our hopes and aspirations into reality, and helping us to shape the nature of our new house. When the build commences, we were involved in each important stage of the process. But you can leave all the details in Shane’s competent hands, and in the hands of his very skilled team. Best of all our new home was on time and on budget.

Thank you to Shane Dennien, and his excellent team!

Townhouse complex at Camp Hill

I am writing to express our most sincere appreciation for all you have done during the construction of our Townhouse complex at Camp Hill.

As you know, this was a big project for us, and we were initially very nervous about choosing a builder to work with. We can now say with all honesty that selecting Tangara Constructions was the best decision we made!

We have faced a number of problems along the way, including dramas with Council, architects, engineers…but we always felt absolute confidence in our builder. Your ability to anticipate, manage and resolve these problems, ensured a smooth and worry free experience. You have handled each obstacle that presented itself with integrity and professionalism.

We were also delighted to note that our project was finished approximately 3 months sooner than a very similar site several blocks away. Your dedication to completing the houses on time was evident, and not only did you save us 10’s of thousands of dollars, but we were able to get ‘The Jump’ on the rental market ahead of our closest competition.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to all our friends and family, and we look forward working with you again at some point in the future.

All he best for your future endeavours!

Very high standard of workmanship and pride in their work.

When we were considering purchasing our new home, we were fully aware that some serious renovations were required to suit our lifestyle. Most people advised against renovating due to the stress usually caused by such a project.

We had in the past renovated a house, and that was when we got to know Shane Dennien. At that time he was an apprentice but we recognised then his tradesmanship and ethics.We therefore didn’t hesitate to contact him again when we were ready to proceed with our second lot of renovations.

Tangara Constructions, under the Management of Shane Dennien, provided us with a stress free process. We found all tradesmen, engaged by Tangara Constructions, to be of a very high standard of workmanship and pride in their work.

We are extremely happy with the renovations on our home, and wouldn’t hesitate to engage Tangara Constructions again in the future.

Previous Builder Abondoned Project

Shane Dennien and the Tangara Team took on the partially-completed renovation at my Cannon Hill home. The previous builder had left the project and a lot needed to be done to bring it up to standard.

Shane quickly identified and prioritized the demands of the project. He communicated with me all through the project, explaining the choices available to me and offering practical alternatives. Shane demonstrated great organizational skills with this complex build and remained approachable at all times.

Tangara Constructions’ team of tradesmen are quick, professional and clearly enjoy doing a good job. They were a delight to have on the site and impressed me with their team approach, courtesy and good humour. On completion of every task, the site was tidied and rubbish removed in readiness for the next stage.

Tangara’s professional attitude has been reflected in the work standard of the completed project and never fails to impress anyone who remembers my home in its saddest state. I had every confidence in Shane and in Tangara Constructions to bring my project to completion. This confidence has provided me with a safe, secure renovated home at a realistic price. I would unreservedly recommend Tangara Constructions to anyone considering major building work.
