Wow, it looks like it has always been there! It’s so impressive,” is the most common response from people viewing our extension by Urban Scene Construction. This includes from members of the public who have knocked on our door or spoken with us on the front lawn asking for contact details of our builder, which we have provided with a very high recommendation.
From the initial meeting and plan design, submission to council and the style of cabinets and pattern on the driveway, Urban Scene Construction gave us confidence that we were dealing with experienced, professional, creative and highly trustworthy people. Jason and Chantal were only a phone call or an email away throughout the whole process. They gave us their time and recommendations at all stages of the process, outlined considerations of designs that we would never have thought of and listened to what we wanted. They took away the stress and this extension became an enjoyable experience. Jason and Chantal went above and beyond what we expected and have a genuine interest in providing the highest level of support and service to their clients. We can only give them the highest recommendation possible and thanks for a fantastic end product that has greatly increased the value of our house.

Hi Chantal and Jason
Now that we have moved back and settled in to our house, Rose and I thought we should put in writing how pleased we are with our decision to engage you and your company for our rebuild/renovation. Put simply, you have managed to exceed our expectations in all areas, from organising approvals, to design ideas and material selection through to the high quality of workmanship from all trades.
As you know, our renovation was not planned and occurred under very trying circumstances. You took a lot of the stress out of a process which we were dreading, and have managed to not only bring back the character of a house which had definitely seen better days, but also sympathetically add those modern touches which make it more liveable and comfortable. You have managed to achieve a harmonious blend of traditional and modern which so many renovations try to, yet don’t quite pull off.
We appreciate your honesty, professionalism and the ease of dealing with you. We have already recommended your services to a number of people, and will continue to do so.
We look forward to engaging with you again when we are looking at our planned next stages.

After living in our house for nearly 20 years, which we had built, it was time to bring our home up to date. We had a particular vision but, we didn’t know where to start. Our friend recommended Urban Scene Construction and we could not be happier with the outcome. As a working couple we had no idea how to fulfil our dream, nor the expertise to bring it all together. The moment we engaged Jason and Chantal to bring our dream to reality, we were in good hands. We had very set ideas of what we wanted and almost everything changed due to the expert advice and guidance from Jason and his team. From carpet choice, tile selection and the final layout of our signature room, the advice given guided us to an outcome we could not have ever imagined. The work conducted was second to none and the immediate response to any concern was certainly appreciated. It was wonderful to work with Jason and Chantal and we now have a functional new space we never conceived. Thank you for the great job you have done, and the professional guidance we were offered throughout the build. We would highly recommend Urban Scene Construction to anyone looking for a one stop shop.
Yvette Cawley - Sunnybank Hills State School
Chantal and Jason, As a teacher I usually only hear from parents when something is going wrong. Good feedback is rare. With that in mind, I wanted to let you know how happy I am with the progress of our renovations. I am really, really, really overjoyed. Jason, you have taken my vision and made it a reality. I love what you have done and the manner in which you get things done. I appreciate your warm and approachable nature and your ability to translate what is in my head into tangible objects. Chantal, your ability to coordinate all the comings and goings of tradesmen leaves me astounded. It’s a well-oiled operation and has made our lives easier. Thank you to you both. Our house is taking form and I can’t wait to enjoy the new spaces created. Have a great evening!

To undertake a recent renovation to our home we chose Jason and Chantal of Urban Scene Construction for our project. This was done on the recommendation of a family member whose own home had just been renovated by them. This decision did not disappoint quite the opposite in fact. From the choice of builder through the planning and design stages the actual building process where the quality of workmanship was excellent through to the final handover everything was as we had hoped for. To Jason and Chantal for your patience and your courteous response to all our requests for your professional approach and your ever present friendly manner we sincerely thank you and have no hesitation in recommending you to others.
Daniel - Renovation Frank St Norman Park
We engaged Urban Scene Construction in August 2010 to renovate the upstairs of our pre-war home. Jason was friendly and helpful right from the start and assisted us throughout the build process with design ideas. The job was completed on schedule and the build quality is of the highest standard. 3 months on we have had no need for any alterations or fixes which is a testament to the quality of the work. We found Urban Scene Construction to be supportive and contactable throughout the build process and will certainly be in contact again for any future work. Cheers,
Damien & Carly Stiler - Audrey Street Camp Hill
We completed an internal renovation of our 1950s 3 bedroom house in Camp Hill with Urban Scene Construction in 2009. As we had recently renovated two bedrooms and the living areas it was important that the new renovation blended seamlessly with the existing finishes and that construction did not damage the recently completed works.The project involved demolition of exiting internal load bearing walls, asbestos removal, raising a section of internal floor, installing exterior French doors and new ceilings and wall framing to two bathrooms, one bedroom and the kitchen.Jason delivered an extremely high quality of workmanship and completed all works to a very high standard with quality material used throughout. We found Jason to be very professional and easy to work which was particularly important as we were living in the property throughout the renovation.We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Urban Scene Construction to anyone considering a renovation or new construction project.
Peter Coggins & Lee Lunney Coorparoo QLD October 2013
We are pleased to be able to provide a testimonial for Urban Scene Construction. Earlier this year we commissioned Urban Scene to build-in underneath our Coorparoo Queenslander. Urban Scene’s price was competitive and we had a sense they were competent. We were novice renovators, and hence we were heavily reliant on Urban Scene for advice on the structural, design and finishing aspects. Without hesitation we are able to say that Urban Scene exceeded our expectations in all aspects. The quality of Urban Scene’s works have added significant value to our premises and our lifestyle. We are pleased to recommend Urban Scene for their design advice, product knowledge and workmanship. The administrative aspects of the project were flawless. We will engage Urban Scene for any future works we perform. Thank you very much Jason and Chantal.
Alicia Bettles - La Monte St Moorooka
Dear Chantal and Jason, I would like to thank you for delivering what is an amazing result with our renovation. All of our family and friends are stunned with the transformation, and your work speaks for itself.From initial planning, you were both entirely focused on our needs and what we were hoping to achieve; and the patience and effort you took in meeting with us and integrating changes to scope was beyond expectations. Our new house now has a great flow, which is both practical and comfortable, and a design that is unique and attractive. For a limited budget, you managed to deliver a slick result, which we feel has enhanced our future resale potential considerably. Our thanks to you both for your efforts in bringing to life our sad old postwar, we honestly could not have been happier with the result. Best wishes to you and your team, and high recommendations to potential clients.
Kevin and Angela Barratt - Bathroom Renovation Project - 23 Byrnes Street, Fairfield
We renovated our tired and dated bathroom this year. We were looking for something luxurious but still functional for everyday use and we got it! We engaged the services of Urban Scene Construction. Jason, Chantal and the team were very professional and very easy to work with right from concept to handover. Regular contact on a daily basis and ongoing input ensured the perfect end result we absolutely love every day. The team of professionals were of an exceptional high standard in their respective areas. Congratulations Urban Scene on a job well done and right on target before handover date. We have no hesitation in recommending Urban Scene to our friends or to any future clients wishing to take on a project that will guarantee a successful result.
Dr Boomi & Family - 160 Orange Grove Rd, Salisbury
We recently finished some extension work for our house, by adding a kitchen, bathroom and 2 more rooms. Before renovating, we had a detailed discussion about everything that had been planned, and what would be happening throughout the process. As we were in Emerald at that moment, it made it more difficult for us, and caused a bit of worry between our families, as everything had to go according to the plan.Yet, at the end, we hardly had to do any work, as Jason and Chantal took care of all the details. We had a good communication with Chantal, and at no time, were we rushed to make hasty decisions without previous notice. We received regular updates, along with photos very often, just as we needed. It was very easy to contact Chantal, even on the weekends and she responded promptly. The house was an extravagant piece of work, and we were really pleased with the end result, as well as the hard work and effort that was put into the extension of the house. My wife only saw the house at the end, as she couldn’t visit it throughout the renovation. She was pleased with the work, as it was dreamy pictures come true. The project was completed within the given time. Jason brought our idea into a perfect house. Even after the renovation had been completed, he still visited the house, and made sure everything was running smoothly. Our family was very impressed, as even though we were not there in person, everything still worked out properly. We would like to give our heart-felt thanks to Jason, Chantal and the team. We appreciate their hard work and effort put into this project. We would be very happy to contact Jason again, for any future work. We would be very happy to be contacted, for further references.
Robert & Suzanne - Renovation 32 Booligal St, Carina
We recently completed our extension at Booligal St in February 2012. The project involved 2 additional bedrooms, relocating the entry to our house and creating internal stairs. We engaged and selected Urban Scene Construction to complete our extension because of the following reasons: 1. Jason made an appointment to discuss the extension and attended when he said he would. – Reliability. 2. The discussion was very open and informative with Jason providing additional suggestions and ideas of what could be supplied. – Excellent communication. 3. Jason provided the quote within a timely manner and was very open to changes and additions. – Honesty. Once the extension commenced, Jason provided us updates throughout the course of the works, open to changes and able to provide quotes so there were no additional “surprises”. The quality of workmanship delivered and the materials used were of a high standard, with Jason ensuring we were happy with the work that was completed that day or week. The things that made this a quality experience were the communication, commitment and honesty provided by Jason and Chantal. We are very happy with our end product and would highly recommend Urban Scene to any person looking to complete building works.
Jenny and Mick Quinn - Renovation Dublin Street Capalaba
We’ve had renovations done before and found it very stressful, but with Urban Scene Constructions we were more than happy. Dealing with Jason was very easy, as he was very approachable and open to any changes along the way. Communication was never a problem as he kept in contact throughout the process, always making sure we were happy with everything and keeping us informed at all stages of progress. There is a professional approach in everything from the planning to the end product with quality workmanship in all areas. The site was left clean and tidy and there were no hidden extras with an honest approach to costs. We would highly recommend Urban Scene Constructions as not only friendly and reliable, but quality builders who will do a professional job and finish on time.
