RedKem Construction undertook our renovation of part of our house which included a large main bathroom, and ensuite and a Walk-In-Wardrobe.
We are very happy with the outcome and really enjoyed the experience doing the reno with the RedKem team.
Some of the key points that impressed us:
– Transparency and accuracy of the quote and works involved
– Quality of the works and the final outcome
– Communication and adherence to the proposed timeframes
Our site supervisor Craig was excellent and very easy to deal with – would certainly recommend Redkem to anyone looking to undertake renovation project of any size (we are already talking to them about our next project!)
Thanks Jared and the Redkem team!
We are so pleased with the renovation project Redkem completed
on our home, modernising our post-war house into a stylish and
functional family home whilst also retaining unique character
features. It looks beautiful! The building and design team were easy
to communicate with and provided a great overall service. We
would highly recommend using Redkem and would use them again
ourselves if we have another building project in the future.
Jared and his team have just completed a full downstairs renovation of our property, inclusive of a garage conversion, and we are thrilled with the result.
From the moment we made contact with Jared, we knew he was the builderwe wanted to work with on our renovation. Apart from being incredibly personable, Jared was extremely communicative and responsive right from day one, answering all our questions (of which there were MANY!) and offering solutions to our challenges. Nothing seemed to faze him, which filled us with trust and confidence in his ability to do the job and do it well, and the RedKem team certainly did not disappoint.
The RedKem team and all the sub-contractors were a pleasure to work with, and the quality of the workmanship is second to none. And to top it off, the project was completed within budget and ahead of schedule (despite there being supplies delays along the way).
We would use RedKem again in a heartbeat and we highly recommend Jared and his team to anyone considering renovating their home.
We contracted RedKem for our house raise and renovation earlier this year. From the start Jared was easy to
correspond with, reliable and ready to work with us to make things achievable. Throughout the renovation the whole
team was pleasant and hardworking, with the carpentry team demonstrating exceptional workmanship. When hurdles
arose Jared and our site manager Craig were very responsive, solution oriented and keen to ensure we were happy
with the outcome. As first time renovators we felt supported and in good hands throughout. We are extremely happy
with the results and have been enjoying our newly renovated house! We highly recommend the RedKem team and
won’t hesitate to work with them on future projects.
Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
From our very first meeting with Jared, we had a very good feeling and knew almost immediately that Redkem was
the ideal builder to place our trust in and look after our home reno.
The communication was exceptional and nothing was ever too hard from start to finish.
The entire Redkem team were always very polite, courteous and absolutely fantastic to deal with and the quality of work was exceptional.
We are very grateful to Jared and the team that we were able to still live at home while major work was being done.
Our home has been completely transformed and we are so happy and cannot speak highly enough of the Redkem team.
We highly recommend Redkem and will have no hesitation in calling them back.
Patrick and Jodie Harman
Jared and the team at RedKem Constructions took up the challenge of modernising and extending our 1970’s home.
We were originally unsure of whether to move to a new house or renovate. Jared guided us through the
decision-making progress in favour of renovating, and then recommended a building designer who met us on site. He
came up with a terrific solution and the decision was made to renovate.
Jared and his RedKem team are a polished outfit. These guys are exceptional. I am from a construction background
and I had convinced myself that the experience was going to be a nerve-wracking one. Once the renovation started
and I saw how RedKem operated, my worries began to diminish, and they were soon completely gone.
RedKem have an amazing crew. Their site manager never stopped letting us know what was happening and the site
construction team were first class. We cannot thank the whole team enough for delivering the build exactly on time
and completing it to the highest standard. Jared often said that his goal is to run his company differently to other
building companies. To us that meant that no topic raised or anything that we questioned along the way was
dismissed or brushed away. We had a great feeling of collaboration throughout the entire journey. When we moved a
few goalposts and changed some directions they worked with us. When it came to quality, they were constantly
checking that we were happy with how the build was shaping up. It is a testament to this approach is that the tidy up at
the end was a surprisingly short list. The completed project is exactly what was presented on the drawings.
I you are thinking of renovating, you must give RedKem a call. I highly recommend that you do that and find out for
Queensland Designer Homes
As a Building Designer, Jared and I have worked together on various projects for some time now. I have worked with a
lot of builders and I can tell you – builders that operate like RedKem Constructions are very rare these days. Every
client I have spoken to has nothing but high praise for both Jared and the RedKem Constructions team as a whole.
The things that are most often mentioned are Jared’s promptness to meetings and responding quickly to emails &
phone calls, the whole team’s friendly nature, the clear communication throughout the entire building process, the high
quality work and finish and RedKem’s unique online workflow system so you can see what stage your is at throughout
the building process.
I can personally and professionally vouch for RedKem Constructions, as a builder that sets the bar for other builders. I
will continue to recommend the RedKem team to my personal clients for the foreseeable future as one of the best
builders in Brisbane.
Rhys and Jen
We couldn’t be happier with our renovation. Redkem have really showed respect and understanding for the style and tradition of a 5 generation owned family home…something that was really important to us.
The effort that Jared, Craig and the team put in to the scope and detail was amazing and for such a significant renovation, it is a testament to this attention to detail that there were no surprises.
Trust in a builder was very important to us and we wouldn’t hesitate recommending redkem.
Who else do you know ends their Reno by enjoying beer and prawns on their new deck with their builder.

Michelle and Chris – Major Renovation
We want to thank Jared and his team for the amazing job they have done on our major home renovation project.From the first time we contacted him, Jared had been extremely responsive and helpful. As we had to manage the renovation from overseas for a large portion of time, good communication has always been one of our priorities when selecting our builder. Jared and his team provided us with the confidence we needed right from the word go. Any questions and queries we had were always answered almost immediately.
Throughout the planning and build process, Susan provided us with great ideas on the overall design, and material & colour selections etc., which took away a lot of stress for us. Susan continued to help us monitor and manage the renovation while we’re overseas, and helped rectify issues that we didn’t even realise was there. Susan’s advice proved to be spot on, as the end results are absolutely stunning.
As great as Redkem is at what they do, it is almost impossible for any project to go without having any issues. What makes Redkem stand out from the rest is their ability to resolve these issues quickly. Craig did a fantastic job at having each stage of the renovation completed on time. Any issues we raised with him, Craig was always able to find creative ways to resolve them the next day.
There are numerous occasions when Jared and his team went above and beyond what was agreed to ensure that the whole process is as stress-free for us as possible. No words can truly express our gratitude towards Jared, Craig, Susan and the rest of the team for the amazing work they have done in transforming our tired 80’s house into a gorgeous family home.
We wholeheartedly recommend Redkem Constructions to anyone looking to renovate their home, as we 100% agree on their claim as the best renovation builder in Queensland!
Michelle & Chris
John and Nicola – Major Renovation
I just wanted to send another note to say thank you so very much. I feel that in the moment, when a camera is pointed at you, only a small amount of info springs to mind. It’s only afterwards, now, that I think… why didn’t I say that… etc? You may want to use this for your website as I know there is text on there… feel free if so, but I honestly can’t talk highly enough about you and your team of people supporting “RedKem”. As Craig would say, very off the cuff… “well… we can do anything”, I honestly felt you did.
There were plenty of afterthoughts by myself and John and you and your team simplified that and made it possible, effortless! Your communication through the whole project was a credit to you all. You stuck to your word and delivered the goods. I’ve know plenty of people go through a build and be promised weekly updates, to never receive as many as one in every 2 months. Craig emailed progress on our project weekly and answered and questions or concerns within 24 hours. This is a huge credit to yourselves, as this I feel is paramount during a renovation. Your team also coped so very well with John and myself being on site so much! There is a time where our home gets handed to yourselves and it becomes your work place. You never once made myself or John feel anything other than welcome during the whole experience. John was there daily, analysing every little detail and you worked with him and his requests as a team. Never was it any different, your company was so accommodating.
The quality in the build itself and it’s finish is far better than I imagined. It is schmick! (love that word!). I love every single thing about this house and it was never just John and myself driving that vision. I know Craig was very particular during the whole process, as was Jeff during the foundation stage. I really feel as though we received quality on all elements along the way. We renovated at mid to top end range and definitely received that to our standards. It’s the first time we have took on a renovation project and your team made it very easy. We are not easy customers and have high standards I feel. Your team exceeded our expectations over and above that. The house has been matched from old to new fantastically! I honestly never knew you could still get half the stuff you sourced, e.g. door handles and doors to match the existing structure. Anything additional to new and old has been matched identically and the thought gone into that has blown me away. I’m still, 2 weeks on, noticing finer detail that shines out beyond my expectations. It’s such a credit to you and your team. You dealt very professionally through some tricky weather during the ‘none lock up stage’ and I have been more than happy with your schedule and work rate. You had a large team working on our project daily and made excellent progress throughout. I can’t believe how quickly it’s happened from start to finish really.
You never made us feel anything other than comfortable, secure and supported during this venture and we all definitely worked together as a team. Susan was AMAZING. She is such an asset to RedKem and will turn the finer details of any project into a beautiful, well proportioned, colour co-ordinated, clique styled space. She sources elements I have just never seen before and at a great price. Again she is so accommodating and quick on time frame. I would recommend all people using her in the future as she just thinks of and see things you just don’t see yourself. She’s very professional. Thanks for letting us keep our crazy dogs on site, for feeding them on occasion… and probably the fish too! Your team helped look after the place. We’re fortunate to have been through this experience with yourselves at such a crazy time in our lives. Four kids alone is challenging enough, let alone a baby and 2 year old within that count. We’ve been so time poor and have just had to rely on you and your team to come up with the best possible solutions along the way. We trusted you and definitely got the best and fairest choices .
Thank you so much. I hope my “schpeal” does you justice and you feel good about it all (even more so!) once read. Thank you thank you thank you… we are one lucky, happy family xxxxxxxxxxxx.
Allison & Gary
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Jared and his team, particularly Craig, Louie and Brandon for doing an excellent job on our over garage extension.
From the outset, Jared was highly professional, easily contactable and worked with us diligently to note down our specifications. Jared was not only competitive with his pricing, but he also provided a detailed quotation costing out each phase of the construction, resulting in a fixed price contract which allowed us to budget accordingly. Moreover, despite a couple of issues arising which could not have been foreseen, to his credit Jared never waivered from his fixed price quote where other builders may have regarded the additional work as a variation and invoiced accordingly. Jared’s integrity, honesty and ‘can-do’ attitude are qualities every builder should have, and which ultimately made for a seamless project from start to finish.
From day one the construction commenced on time and went smoothly with good communication. Louie and Brandon were a delight to have on site. They were polite, courteous, punctual and very patient, with a friendly and helpful attitude . Nothing was ever too much to ask, and the work was completed within schedule, with the minimum of disruption and with the highest quality and workmanship. In addition, every subcontractor was at the top of their game, resulting in an extension that slots seamlessly into the existing house and looks amazing.
We are over the moon with the end result and have no hesitation in recommending RedKem Constructions to people about to embark on their building project. Their customer service and workmanship is second to none.
Thanks a million, Allison & Gary

A Building Certifier inspects and signs off on construction work at critical stages, when they are satisfied it meets the legislative requirements. Here’s what our building certifier had to say about our team at RedKem Constructions…“Having dealt with Jared and the team from RedKem Constructions over a variety of domestic building projects, I can certainly endorse their great attitude, positive approach to the job, and great workmanship. Jared is a diligent Builder who does his research, covers all the bases, and does things the right way.”

Customer Service – it does exist!If you ever need a builder give Jared at RedKem Constructions a call. Firstly, he actually returns your call within 24 hours and does exactly what he says he would – a rarity these days. The guys are amazing to work with, nothing we threw at them during construction was ever an issue and they even brought ideas to the table, one of those being our LED lighting under the handrails.
Thanks again guys – what a job!

Gaslight Bistro – New Farm
Our experience working with Jared and the team from RedKem constructions was overwhelmingly positive and we cannot recommend them highly enough to any potential clients. From the initial consultation through both planning and design phase, onto the execution and follow up visits, the team at RedKem showed themselves to be true professionals.Jared and his team made the process of building our venue Gaslight Bistro, as stress free as possible. RedKem set the expectation from the beginning of the work to be done, the timeframe it was to be done in and the total cost for the work. And true to their word, the expectations were met.
The quality of the craftsmanship from RedKem is of the highest standard. We were delighted with the finishes the team provided, from the flooring, to the bar tops, to the minor elements that were treated with at much care as the major features.
We would not hesitate in recommending Jared and the RedKem constructions team to anyone considering having building work done. Their standard of service sets a benchmark for the industry and the conduct of the team and the finish product are a credit to Jared and RedKem Constructions.

Bathroom renovation – Sunnybank
RedKem renovated our bathroom in June last year. As much as anyone loathes renovations, it was a pleasant experience from commencement to completion. Jared was always contactable and communicated himself well. A quality rarely seen in this type of industry. He was always on time and took care to protect or cover other areas of the house which may have had a bit of foot traffic. Tools were always stored out of the way and the guys always cleaned up. Not only was the whole process completed in the time frame stated, but also within the quote as stated.
Jared offered great advice to us during the whole renovation. Things that we’d not thought of or hadn’t seen before were a great addition to our bathroom. We’ve gone from a dated 80’s to a sleek modern bathroom. The quality of his workmanship is far beyond his young years in the
We look forward to our next project with Redkem and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them for any type of work.

Renovation – Coorparoo
Jared is a professional builder and tradesperson who listened to our needs. His first response is always ‘yes’ instead of no or it can’t be done that way. We were very comfortable working with a professional with that mindset and who delivered a project on time and within budget. And they actually cleaned up the site each day – believe it !!

Kitchen Renovation – River Hills
We recently decided to undertake a full kitchen renovation. We consulted with Jared about the removal of a wall between the kitchen and lounge room to open up the space. Jared and his team from RedKem did the structural part of our kitchen renovation. We were very pleased with the result. They accommodated our requests, listened to us, got on with it in a timely and professional manner, cleaned up every day and the positive attitude of all the workmen was a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend Redkem and will certainly use them again for future projects.

FrameSteel Granny Flats
Jared and his team constructed one of our granny flat kits for a customer in Logan Village.
Our first impression of Jared was excellent. He took the time to learn our product and wasn’t afraid to give it a shot (or at least didn’t show it)!
As our frames are all steel, most builders are reluctant to build with them. This was not the case with Jared and his team. He put in a lot of effort during the whole process to ensure that the customer was receiving exactly what they needed and wanted out of their kit.
Jared was always a pleasure to deal with, even when everything didn’t go to plan. He was happy to work with all parties involved to reach the desired outcome.
The end product is amazing and the quality is second to none. This is a direct result of RedKem Constructions’ abilities, knowledge and understanding of the building process.
Frame Steel would not hesitate to recommend Jared and his team to anyone looking to build or extend.

We heartily recommend RedKem and the crew for building work. Trust is important to us – we weren’t disappointed by engaging RedKem.
We had a rear patio badly in need of repair as well as some internal work in a bedroom and stairwell adjacent to the patio. Over about a year, Jared visited a number of times to help us through a process to decide what we wanted and what we could afford, including visits from a certifier and a designer, and a soil test. The real benefit from this process was that it opened up affordable options that we hadn’t thought of yet, as well as taking anything unrealistic out of play.
The work was completed on time and within budget. The communication with Craig (the team leader) and Jared was great and the energy and skills demonstrated by his crew were impressive. The job wasn’t easy because we live on a slope and access for machines was tricky. There were no real issues, when anything came up we would talk to Craig or Jared and it would be sorted.
