The work we have had carried out by Silver Fern Construction has been of the very highest quality. each and every detail was discussed prior to commencing the work scope.

He is always prompt and manages to carry out the work in good time. The level of professionalism is easy to see in the end result.

Every small detail is thought of and always passed on, with advice materials and finishes. All part of the excellent service.

If you have any building project I would highly recommend you look no further than Silver Fern Construction.

Having committed to an environmentally friendly build I was fortunate enough to find Silver Fern Construction to drive my build forward. Scotts experience of timber frame and structurally insulated panels was invaluable.

Silver Fern not only set a high standard of work for others to follow but also managed the all important Client / Contractor balance remarkably well. If he thought my suggestion was impractical he would tell me and if I felt I needed to question something he was both approachable and receptive.

In Summary Scott ‘Scotty’ Maw was my greatest asset throughout a challenging and rewarding building experience.

We recommend Silver Fern Construction to anyone looking for highly qualified and skilled professionals.

Scotty project managed and carried out the work on our renovation project, from start to finish in 2019.

This included the demolition, removal and installation, as well as organising the various tradesman-plumbers, electricians, plasterer and decorating services all required to complete our build.  Our project was completed within the agreed time frame, extremely stress free and within budget!

Scotty was always available to contact, professional, punctual and responsive throughout the whole process.  Every single part of the job was completed to the highest standard, meticulous attention to detail, knowledgeable and skilful throughout each stage.

I honestly can't recommend Silver Fern enough for all building, construction, refurbishment and renovation work.  First class!
