You would love a builder to be empathetic to your build needs, supportive of your ideas but honest in his professional opinion, has an eye for detail and aesthetics, is meticulous and highly skilled on the tools, knowledgeable in his profession and willing to research new ideas, informative of the how’s, when’s and why’s, efficient, organised and punctual.

Sounds like the dream builder for your dream house ?

Chris Lansdown and his company Quay 3 Is “The Dream Builder”. With all the qualities above and more.

It has been an absolute joy and honour to have Chris as “The Builder” for our projects.

We recently purchased our new Bowral home in a inspired ‘escape to the country’ moment. After a long search my wife and I were captivated by an exceptional property that we discovered was built by the team at Quay 3 building. The attention to detail on the newly built home , the beautiful finishes and the high end quality in all aspects of the home was a deciding factor in our choice. Chris and the team were friendly and professional in accommodating some minor changes we needed done to the property’s workspace, and got the job done in prompt time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris at Quay 3 for building work and will definitely be calling him for my next project!

As the director of Kathy Barnsley Architect Pty Ltd, I worked with Chris Lansdown in
his capacity both as a licensed builder and as foreman for a previous company over the
last several years on several different projects. Each of these builds presented their own unique challenges, to which Chris applied his considerable skills to successful outcomes.I have no reason to doubt Chris’ competence as a builder and his ability to manage projects in terms of his professionalism, competency and technical skills. His customer service skills are also excellent, always going that extra mile to ensure that a client is happy. I would have no hesitation in believing him capable of undertaking any project, based on my experience working with him on these and other projects.

We have been working with Chris Lansdown and his Quay3 team at Mona Farm in Braidwood for the last three years. They have completed nine different dwellings and are about to start the tenth. Working with Quay3 has been most rewarding. Chris has put together a great team of tradesmen and the quality of their work is excellent. The builder-owner relationship is not always an easy one and yet in this case it has been most constructive and led to a strong friendship. Chris Lansdown is a man of great integrity and we recommend Quay3 without hesitation.

Professionally, I have found Chris to be efficient, thorough and well organized. He has a good working knowledge of building industry standards, the approvals system and regulatory requirements. A recent project in which I was involved with Chris in the capacity of building certifier, was the construction of a dwelling at 252 Compton Park Road Berrima. The build was completed seamlessly from start to finish and in a timely manner. The build required special finishes which were completed with excellent attention to detail. His clients were more than happy with the finished job.

In the time I have known Chris I have found him to be an honest, respectful and amiable person to deal with. He is also passionate about building and is considerate to the needs of his clients and others that he works with. I have been involved in the building industry for over fifty years both as a builder and a building surveyor and I would consider Chris to be one of the better builders that I have had the pleasure to deal with. His is a skilled tradesman and demonstrates an excellent high standard of workmanship.
