Owner and operator, Andrew Reid, has over 10 years of experience of construction, including additions, extensions, new homes, decks, pergolas, bathroom and kitchen renovations, whole house makeovers, timber and steel frames, commercial works and million dollar plus projects.
After a complete lifestyle change at 33yo, which saw Andrew leave an office orientated managerial role, into a mature aged carpentry apprenticeship. Once he had achieved his qualifications as a carpenter, he continued studies to become licensed builder. Andrew pursued every opportunity to expand his skill sets by voluntarily undertaking varied aspects of the construction industry outside the carpentry field. He enjoys understanding the associated trades and being able to confidently carry out the said works if required. This has enabled him to have a excellent understanding of the practices and processes within the industry.
Andrew experiences immense satisfaction from past projects by seeing them transformed from a dream/vision through to a high quality finished project completed with a team of qualified and experienced trades people. He says “I have a strong sense of pride simply by driving past previous works and reflecting on and appreciating the quality of the workmanship. I enjoy listening to people’s ideas and dreams whilst also confidently offering suggestions and advice when required. I have confidence in the final product and that makes me extremely proud”.
Andrew’s hobbies and past times are surfing and says “it’s my meditation”, enjoys restoring their split-screen VW Kombi and spending time with his family. Family is very important to Andrew and takes every opportunity to go bushwalking, camping, surfing, snowboarding/skiing, mountain biking, tennis, fishing. “Our family enjoy giving back to our community and are patrolling members of our local surf club”.

Pre-construction design and planning is where you investigate the feasibility of your ideas before you spend any money, that is;
1. What can I do within the council guidelines?
2. What can I do within my budget?
This is the perfect time to engage your Smith & Sons Builder, someone who understands the design and construction process and can establish the feasibility of your project and suggest workable solutions if needed.
Your Smith & Sons Builder will prepare an estimate based on your ideas, discussions and evident site conditions, then on to planning.
Smith & Sons, our detailed quoting system clearly outlines all work and costs involved in your project, giving you peace of mind that you can feel confident there are no nasty surprises at project completion.
In the planning stage your Smith & Sons builder will take the concept plans and organise the design specialists, your project may need, before construction begins – Draftsmen, Architects, Kitchen Designers, Engineers, Surveyors and an Estimator – ensuring you have all the right information for decision making, this also free’s up your time.
While this will require a small investment from you, we highly recommend this step for your own peace of mind and because:
1. You'll have a clearer idea of what you could expect to invest in your renovation and have the opportunity to change the design to fit your budget if necessary.
2. Design assumptions made by the Estimator will be passed on to the Designer so that the design fits the budget.
3. If you need to finance the project, the estimate will give you enough information to gain pre-approval on a bank loan.
Each project we undertake is, run by a dedicated Project Manager. The Project Manager will ensure your project is completed on schedule as well as taking care of organising tradespeople, liaising with council, managing inspections and providing all the paperwork necessary. So you can sit back and enjoy your project being built.
