Grieve Built specialises in high quality architecturally designed homes. New build or renovations combining period and modern styles in Inner Melbourne, Bayside and now in Bendigo.
An exciting project challenged by limited access for excavation and installation of steel beams. Concrete hyper-floor finish with underfloor heating brought an industrial feel but with comfort.
This house takes advantage of its unique heritage and position, with creative flare. A privilege to build custom features throughout to take advantage of the city views and create light spaces.
Grieve Built took this project over after the previous builder had declared bankruptcy. The site was unsafe and the demolition was incomplete. We were able to recover the time, retain the charm of the building and exceed the expectations of the owners.
'We are absolutely thrilled with the finished result and in fact it actually looks even better than we had envisaged. Your advice along the way was welcome mainly because you were always right and it was great that you cared enough about the job to always give your opinion.' BJ, Martin Road
'Our son was 3 weeks old, our previous builder had declared bankruptcy and left the building site unsafe and riddled with defects. Chris assisted us with the insurance process and finished a nine month renovation in seven months. Their team worked collaboratively with us and the architect to create our beautiful home.' AL, Grattan Street
'Tonight I spent time just taking in the beautiful finishes you have created, and sitting on the wooden stair landing enjoying your careful craftsmanship and skills in the evening light. Your good grace, immaculate taste and exceptional skills have been the highlight of this project.' MH, Wright Street #1
'Chris Grieve came recommended as a reliable builder by our neighbours. We engaged Grieve Built to tackle a tricky job: reinstating a Victorian turret.
Chris couldn’t have handled this project better - from engineering drawings, sourcing materials and building off and on site. He always kept us informed and there were no ‘hidden extras’.
His calm knowledgeable manner gave us confidence, along with Cathy in administration who helped with the tricky planning permits required. We highly recommend Grieve Built.' J&DN, Canterbury Rd #2
