We would like to Thank KEIR constructions Brad & Belinda especially. We never wanted to build a home but to buy however working in the industry both of us we decided to make our way to the display village at north shore. When you work with homes all day you see the same thing day in and day out, and when your partner is a builder by trade he has his mind set high.
We walked through a few homes and decided to ask for 2 plans 1 from Keir and 1 from another company. We gave them a list of what we wanted & what we didn't want. We left it with them to make the plan of our dreams. We can say KEIR does listen Belinda made our decision of choosing very easy. Not only did they do it right they listened which is the most important part of making the biggest decision in your life.
We now have a home that everyone stops and admires and all because the team at KEIR listened and worked with us without any hassle. Brad you make people feel at ease and we cannot thank you enough and those last minute changes that we always seemed to do were no problem at all.
Naomi & Daniel
We wanted to build a new home and thought a quick look through the North Shore Display village would be a great place to start. We walked through all 20+ homes and immediately knew that Keir would be our builder the minute we walked through their display homes. It was evident the quality and value for money was there and Brad was already racking up a nice collection of HIA awards. The entire process from design modifications to colour selections and choosing fixtures and fittings was arranged well and completed easily. The communication was great and we felt fully informed of the progress of the build. Brad’s team worked together to make us feel supported throughout the process and the house was completed on time. Last minute alterations were incorporated without complaint and Keir Constructions worked with our other contractors to incorporate the shed and pool into the entire plan. Brad provided us with a builder’s key which meant we had access to the house throughout the build and right up to handover which instilled even more confidence in me that we were dealing with a builder who had integrity and nothing to hide. I would recommend Keir Constructions to anyone who wants a quality home built to budget, delivered on time and a stress free experience.
Tony & Olly
Brad, To you and your team a very big thank you, has been great to work with you guys and we are very impressed with the house it’s exactly what we wanted. Also thanks for the house warming gifts, very thoughtful.
Please pass our thanks onto Sharon, Danielle and Gavin. You have a great team and we will be sure to recommend Keir to our friends and family.
Andrew & Matt
It took us a year to decide where to build our own house and it took us just over a day to decide which builder will complete our lovely first home.
Having a growing family like us, major consideration will be the cost to build. How we ended up with Keir Constructions? We went to a number of builders and made clear of two things. One will be our basic house design requirements. And the most important one is we have a tight budget. Outcome? Most of them would either present something within the budget but not satisfy our design requirement or the other way around. Keir was the last builder we have visited (late Saturday afternoon) yet they were the quickest to come up with a reasonable proposal. Keir obviously is doing something right and they have outdone the rest they definitely nailed it with "A" class! They presented something more than what we were expecting, the best value for our money.
The construction process till the handover was a breeze, everyone was easy to deal with and they really take pride in their work , certainly Brad has an eye for quality.
A big Thank You to Keir Construction Team for helping us fulfilling our dream of having our first own house we can call home.
Michael & Pam
Well, what can I say about Keir Constructions that hasn't already been said in other testimonials on this site...???
I'll start with the three P's
Personal, Professional, Perfectionists...
I have built before and due to that experience, thought I'd never build again. Right from the start my wife Jo and I felt very comfortable with the Keir experience. Brad Keir and all his staff are down to earth people who are dedicated to providing a smooth building process. Our house design was never going to be an easy build; however, nothing was too difficult for these true professionals. The attention to detail by the site supervisors, Gavin and Michael, can not be overstated. It was like they were building their own home. They ran a very tight ship and had full control of the site at all times. The tradies used were top notch and it was obvious that they enjoyed working for Keir Constructions.
Overall, our house was built on time and the finished product EXCEEDED our expectations.
Thank you Brad and your marvellous team at Keir Constructions. You fully deserve the title of Most Professional Builder in the north 4 years running. Until next time...
Mark & Jo
When we decided four years ago that we would move to Townsville, we began looking at display homes and speaking with people who had recently built. We were very focused on build quality and finish of the homes we looked at. The Keir Constructions homes were the most impressive and the staff had a very helpful manner.
The construction of our home was one of consultation and support. Any queries were attended to quickly and concerns immediately addressed. The supervisors and subcontractors worked together to deliver our home to the high standard we expected and in the agreed timeframe. The supervisors will go the extra distance to ensure you are happy. Our satisfaction with our home was paramount and Brad and his team did not let us down.
We hope 2015 is a prosperous and rewarding year for Keir Constructions.
Ian & Elena
I know I sound like a broken record but once again I just want to say a MASSIVE thank you to you and all of your staff.
The house is better than we ever imagined it would be.
You and your team went above and beyond and made our dream a reality.
know Mathew, Micarla and I are overwhelmed with the generosity of the welcome gifts we received so thank you (p.s i love the rubber duck in the bathroom haha)
I hope you and all the team at Keir have the most amazing Christmas.
From the day we walked into meet with Brad, to the official hand over of the keys to our new home, the service and
guidance that Brad and his team of tradesman provided was continual and outstanding. Any concerns or questions
that we had were handled professionally and efficiently by the team of Keir Constructions. Aaron and myself would
highly recommend Keir constructions without any hesitation as they made our first building experience one to remember.
Aaron & Sarah
After meeting with many builders and not quite clicking with any of them, we met Belinda at Keir constructions and instantly I could see that my wife had found a builder that she was comfortable with and from there it wasn't long before I was sold as well. Belinda's openess and experience made us both feel comfortable, if was a relief to finally sit down and discuss our needs without feeling like someone was trying to force a sell on us. Belinda's knowledge and advice was was above beyond what we had received anywhere else.
We couldn't have asked for a better site supervisor than Gavin, throughout the build we found that Gavin and all of the contractors were friendly and easy to talk too, willing to help us with any queries we had or changes that we wanted to make along the way, which we did many times.
It was such a nice feeling to arrive at our site and see that our building site was neat, tidy and free of rubbish and having a key so that we could access the house to see the progress, it was amazing.
At the end of the build, we got a first class home, excellent service above and beyond what we found anywhere else along with open and honest advice. We would absoloutely build with Keir again.
So in saying that, Jen and I would like thank Brad, Belinda, Sharon, Gavin and all the Keir staff and contractors for their excellent work and for all of the free advice we got along the way. Well done guys.
Paul & Jen
We chose to build with Brad and his team for a second time after we were so happy with our first home. Not only the experience of building, quality of work and craftmanship, but the after sale service. Nothing is too much trouble for Brad and you feel you really are a valued client for life. Our second home was such a wonderful experience. From design all the way through the build. Our involvement, feedback and thoughts were welcomed. Our changes through the way were never too much trouble. And we ended up with the most perfect home for us! We had a very specific time frame - a wedding planned in our back yard, and Brad and his team pulled out all stops to make sure we had our home 100% right in time to move in and have our special day - well ahead of the minimum contractual timeframe, and on budget! I don't think any build can be perfect, but when you have a team that is willing to work with you, change anything needed, fix any little issue and keep coming back to check in and ensure you really are happy - what more can you ask for. Thanks Brad and all the Keir Team. Your professionalism, attention to detail and the exceptional quality of work ensure we will always recommend you to anyone looking to build.
Tony and Teena
However I would like to say thank you on behalf of Zach, you have made such a beautiful home for the both us to live in. The month I did get to live there before I had to leave for work commitments, made me not want to leave.
Also I would like to say how professional you and everyone else was I dealt with during the whole construction.
As first home owners we were a little apprehensive about building our first home but Brad, Belinda and all of the team at Keir made the process so simple that we immediately knew we had chosen the right builders. Sharon kept us informed about everything that was happening with our new home and was always available to answer any questions we had. We were able to see our new home take shape and it's pretty amazing to see all of your choices come together. We changed our minds on our light fittings after they had been installed and were pretty nervous to go to Brad and ask him if we could change them but he was so helpful and they were changed within a day or two so it didn't even hold the rest of the process up. The quality of the workmanship and Gavin's attention to detail resulted in our home being completed to the highest standard possible and we couldn't be happier with the end result. So thank you to all of the team at Keir Constructions for making our dreams a reality.
Ella & Nathan
Just getting around to opening the hampers you left for us and wanted to say thank you to you and all your team.
Also, thanks for your patience with us (and all my emails!!!) throughout the build. You and your team provide fantastic customer service. You've probably got hundreds of houses being built at the same time but you still made the time to respond to any queries we had as soon as you could.
Thanks for a fantastic new home...
Craig, Jane, Lucas and Isabella
Our family are so lucky to have chosen Keir Constructions to build our new home. The attention to detail and service offered by Brad and his team are second to none. Communication throughout the building process was excellent and we always knew the progress with weekly emails from Sharon keeping us up to date. Our "no surprises" experience was outstanding. From having experts like Anne from the coloured House, Shane from Bill and Ben’s and even our tiler Paul Jackson all striving to make our house the best it could be, we couldn’t go wrong. Special mention must also go to Gavin Edwards and to Brad himself, their attention to detail ensured we moved into a fantastic home with everything we ever wanted. To all those people unsure of who to build with, we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Keir Constructions for a fantastic experience and end product.
Glenn and Catherine
We found Keir Constructions by chance. We met Telford Louez approx. 3 years ago, when we bought our block of land and decided to build. Life happened and building our dream home was postponed. So, at the beginning of 2013, we decided to build again and gave Telford’s mobile a call. He was working for Keir Constructions. We looked at a few plans and fell in love with a design and never looked back. Our experience with Brad Keir and his team has been remarkable. They were so professional and friendly considering all the crazy questions that I asked along the way. Nothing seemed to be a problem for them. I was so shocked to find that I could deal with Brad direct! Every time I phoned or emailed, he would answer instantly. I loved the fact that I could go out onto the site at anytime and that a key was given to us when the house got to lock up stage. With Brad’s strict schedule, the build went very smoothly and the hand over was 60 days later.
To Brad, Telford, Sharon, Gavin and all of the Contractors – Thank you so much for all that you have done.
Amy and Mick from Bushland Beach
We recently purchased our first home from Keir Constructions and we couldn't be happier! The extra little details that Keir pay attention to make our home so comfortable and they were very affordable even as first home buyers.
Brad and the team made it a very smooth transition for us and we are proud to tell everyone our brand new home was built by Keir Constructions and we would highly recommend them.
Jess & Craig
It’s been a year since we moved into our new home, and we’re still as happy as we were the day we were handed the keys. Personal and professional recommendations led us to Keir’s display home at Kalynda Chase, and we’ve never looked back. The whole process was straight forward and we had all the confidence with Brad and the team. Being first home owners, we were expecting the design and decision making process to be a nightmare! It was far from it. The guidance and support from Brad and his team filled us with excitement every step of the way, no stress or doubts. Thank you so much for making our dream come true. We have no hesitation in recommending Keir Constructions, and will definitely choose them again.
Ryan and Sarah
After purchasing my land in February, the tedious process of meeting with different builders was a task that I really dreaded. From meeting with builders three times just to get a quote and numerous phone calls trying to sell me upgrades, I felt like building my house was becoming my job! When I stumbled across Keir Constructions I emailed Brad and within an hour the process had begun. The next day I met with Brad and he had a quote and unlike all of the other quotes I had… he only took 30 minutes and not 3 hours to go through the quote! I think that was what sold me, the fact that Brad let his competitive quote, drawings and design sell itself!
From then the process was easy, friends and family were surprised at how quickly colours, tiles, fixtures and cabinetry were chosen. Meeting with Anne from the Coloured House was invaluable and her recommendations and knowledge was priceless. All I knew was that I wanted grey (lucky Anne was able to match that with tiles and wall colours because I had no idea!). Meeting with Shane from Bill & Ben was just as easy and I was able to complete it in my lunch break, the best part was being emailed a 3D design of my kitchen and being able to show my friends and family.
After 105 emails, numerous phone calls and only 67 days to build I now live in a house that I love and without hesitation would build with Brad & his team again!
One word about Keir Constructions... Awesome!!
We are first home builders and we could have never been in better hands. Brad and his team were so prompt and helpful in every step of the building process. Keir can definitely provide you the best of what you want in a new home.
There were no hidden costs and all the information was given to us up front. If we had any questions or concerns Brad was always just a phone call away and Sharon always kept us up to date on the construction process. Our house was built just in 63 days, with no flaws and it looks amazing. We would definitely build with Keir Constructions again and also recommend it to anyone whose wants to build a quality home within their budget.
A huge THANK YOU to the whole team especially Brad, Telford, Sharon, Janine from MGE Electricals, Shane from CabinetMen and Anne from colored house.
We were always been looked after by you guys =)
Vikram and Sindy
A thank you letter from 2 very happy clients. Maureen & I want to take this opportunity to say what a pleasure it was having our new home built by Keirs. Starting with our initial contact with Telford at Bushland Beach & then yourself, Sharon, Gavin & Scott once things got underway, everybody was friendly & so keen to give the best service, it even applied to the trades that we sometimes met on site. The end result was worth all your effort.
After checking a number of other builders displaying at North Shore, we chose Keirs as being the best value, best finishes & the extras that were included in the price, we were not let down. The included extra of Anne Sanker at The Coloured House for the colour selections made that difficult time very smooth which showed later in the construction process. All in all a professional effort.
The promise of 80 days was well & truly lived up to, the handover date we agreed on arrived & there we were taking the keys to our new home. A special thank you for the personal hand over & our unexpected house warming hamper, as we said the service to the customer exceeded anything we anticipated.
We have no hesitation recommending Keirs to anyone looking to build in Townsville, they couldn't do better!
Grahame Lee & Maureen Dalton
My partner and I had lived together for a few years in two houses and found neither really suited the way we lived. We decided to take the big leap and wanted to get our own house. We knew we wanted to build and we wanted the house of our dreams with a layout that catered to our lifestyle.
We were fortunate enough to have a plan designed for us by a family member, but needed a builder and had heard nothing but good things about Keir Constructions. Keir and the team were most accommodating; helping us make small changes to rein our design back into our budget without losing the integrity of our plan.
As two fussy people, we were initially nervous going ahead with the build but were quickly put at ease and were consulted every step along the way. With feedback and help from Gavin and the guys on site, we were able to see our home coming together step by step.
When we outgrow this home, we will be turning to Keir and the team again to make our next dream come true!
Adrianna & Damien
Dear Brad, Gavin, Sharon and the Team.
We would like to say a HUGE thank you to you all at Keir Construction for doing such a wonderful job. While this is our first house and we only had a small budget, you did an amazing job and ensured everything was perfect.
Beginning the building process can be a little scary however the minute we signed up we knew we were going to be looked after. We didn’t have a single drama…… and if we did we can’t remember it, everything got dealt with quickly and properly, no cutting corners.
As every week passes we are having a ball looking after our amazing home, we recommend building with Keir to anyone who listens and will be doing so ourselves again if we get the chance.
Luke & Georgina
We decided to take the big plunge into home ownership and purchased our ideal block of land. After looking through countless display homes and chatting to numerous builders, it was obvious to us that the quality of finish in a Keir built home was second to none. We had a particular floor plan in mind which was unlike any of the current floor plans that Keir Constructions offered, however this was not a problem at all and the team at Keir were able to work with it. Brad and our salesperson Telford were fantastic, they spent a lot of time listening to the requirements we wanted in the home and came up with an even better floor plan than we could have hoped for! Right from the beginning it was perfect! Brad and Telford made sure everything was very transparent and there were no hidden costs. Working with all of Brad’s sub contractors was effortless. They were all very informative and provided plenty of guidance as to best choices for our home. A huge thank you to Shane from Bill and Ben The Cabinet Men, Mark from Mark Graham Electrical and Jason from Indala Interior Design (Brad was very accommodating to us using an Interior Designer of our choice).
Throughout the build Gavin and the team’s attention to details was superb. They were in regular contact with us to make sure everything was just as we wanted as we were very particular. Keir worked hard to get our home completed in order to meet a tight deadline imposed upon us, and the end result was amazing! It was hard to believe our dream home was now a reality. It was exactly as we had pictured it and it was perfect in every way.
Our home was lucky enough to be entered into the HIA awards and it won Best Custom Home under $400,000. This is a testament to Keir and the whole team who helped accomplish this great achievement.
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Brad, Telford, Gavin and the rest of the Keir Constructions team for all of their hard work, dedication and fantastic service throughout our build. We highly recommend Keir Constructions to anyone looking to build their new home.
Thomas & Alyssa
Looking back, to buy land and design and build a home within 7 months was just mind blowing for someone as cautious as myself. From family to friends, they all could not understand why a single mum would want to go through the process of building a new home instead of buying an existing home. To me it was a decision to invest in a superior product that would be delivered as designed to the highest standard, by a builder that I could trust.
I have known Brad for some four years now and in that time have found that he is a man of his word, who tells it as it is. No beating around the bush.
The hardest part was designing what I wanted. Brad showed me several of his plans that may have fitted my wish list and from there, with a few tweaks and changes and Brad’s expertise my "HIA Award Winning Home" came together so easily. Of course you "Always Want More Please Sir" and Brad was too happy to accommodate a few plan changes to see how it fitted into the budget. From there on in, Anne Sanker , The Coloured House and Shane Bloomfield, Bill n Ben The Cabinetmen, guided me through the colour and kitchen selection with ease.
Throughout the building process I had full access to the property to check things were coming together as planned. Sharon kept me up to date with emails on the progress of construction. I only heard from Gavin twice and that was to confirm a couple of minor details on site at the finishing stage. To me this is testimonial to how well planned and organised the team at Keir Construction are.
I have been in my home for five months now and each and everyday I think to myself how lucky I am and how I love my new home.
Thank you Brad, Sharon and Gavin.
Brad, Sharon and the team
What can we say? You’ve done it again.
Our first building experience with you guys so successful and easy, we had no hesitation in coming back and working with you on a second project. Having taken possession of the finished product, we are glad we did.
Being investment properties we look to work towards a tight budget and you continue to produce the goods. You provide a complete package with the finishes in the house of the highest quality. A testament to the quality of the house was the fact we were able to secure a lease within a week of taking possession.
The building experience, the open communication, the speedy timeframes and the quality of the house add up to make building Keir homes and addictive process.
We certainly look forward to working with you again in the future
Jacen & Michelle
We initially had gone through all the steps to build our home with another builder, but right before construction was to start, things began to fall apart. We then walked ourselves into Keir’s Kalynda Chase display home and spoke to Brad about our dilemma with the first builder, to which he gave us some advice and left it with us to consider. After much deliberation we decided to abandon the plan to rectify the situation with the first builder and we started all over again with Keir. Our decision was based on the fact that Brad seemed to genuinely care what had happened to us with the first builder and that he wanted to help us get our dream home.
One of the big things that attracted us to Keir was the finishes in the display homes, ie. the rounded corners on the walls, and the high ceilings, to name a couple. We enjoyed receiving the updates from Sharon on who would be doing what at each stage of the build. We also liked the fact that we would visit with Bill and Ben the Cabinet Men and design the kitchen to what we wanted and how it would best suit our needs. Having Anne at the Coloured House to assist us with colours, tiles, carpet, lighting etc was also an added bonus. We are thankful for their expertise and guidance. We weren’t given these opportunities with the first builder.
Throughout the build, we had some issues, but they were rectified and done so without any delays to the build. Prior to lock up stage Brad gave us unlimited access to the build, encouraging us to check out the progress as he believes the more eyes that see something, the better chance of picking up mistakes early. We also appreciated that once the house reached lock up stage we were given a key, so we could continue to watch it progress. We are very detail orientated people and went over everything, driving Brad crazy in the meantime!
In closing, Keir Constructions wasn’t our first choice of builder, but should have been! We have a beautifully built home that we are very happy with. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Keir Constructions again!
Brad & Paula
My daughter, Melanie, and I had been looking at display homes in Townsville for quite a while as she was relocating to Townsville from Ingham. We were like babes in the woods as we knew little about building a home or builders and were being super careful to get the best we could afford. Mel was meeting with another builder and was well into the design stage but I was not convinced ... still looking.
I visited a few display homes at Kalynda Chase and stumbled into 64 Kalynda Parade, festooned with HIA Winner flags and similarly signed ute parked out the front. My husband and I walked into the kitchen and were greeted by Brad whom I mistakenly took to be a salesman. He soon put me straight on that one and after a good look around the home, I could see the Keir difference.
From the earliest planning stage, I knew that here was a builder that went out of his way to listen, suggest and implement our plans. Nothing was too much trouble and every detail of the plan was itemised clearly so we knew what we had agreed upon.
As the build progressed, Sharon kept us informed.
Coloured House provided a professional service which enabled Mel free rein to colour and fit out the house. Once again, suggestions were offered and were acted upon.
Shane from Bill and Ben Cabinets was awe inspiring in his knowledge of kitchen design. He came up with a glamorous, practical kitchen which will be the centre of family life.
I can not stress enough the attention to detail given by Brad and his team in the final weeks of the build. I am fussy but my daughter strives for perfection and we could not fault the Keir workmanship. Emails were promptly answered and queries were attended to.
Foliage Solutions created a back garden which exceeded our wildest expectations.
To anyone wanting to build a home, I would recommend Keir Constructions. I give every member of the Keir team my highest recommendation.
Thank you to the Team at Keir Constructions for building our beautiful home. From our very first meeting with Brad we felt very comfortable with the whole process.
The lived up to their promise and actually had our home completed earlier than the date given with first class workmanship. Special thanks to Gavin and the excellent subcontractors for keeping it all running so smooth with no headaches.
What we particularly appreciated was the fact that when we called the office with a query, either Brad, Gavin or Charon were always at hand to answer us immediately.
It has now been 12 months since we moved into our home and still can't believe how smooth our home building experience was.
Congratulations to Brad and his team. It is clear to see why you have won so many building awards. We would not hesitate to recommend Keir Constructions to our friends.
Ken & Pam Groves
When Laura and I decided to look into building a house, we did the usual shopping around. We spent many a weekend admiring display homes and studying floor plans from various builders, all until we walked into the Keir display home at North Shore. We knew straight away that the quality of work and the home designs were for what we had been looking for. We admired the no nonsense approach of the sales team, and knew there’d be no hidden costs or funnies in the contract.
Brad and his team were upfront, forthcoming and an absolute pleasure to deal with, from the time we chose our design right up to after completion, their customer service has been second to none. You can always count on them to be on hand to answer any queries and more than happy to assist at short notice.
We were impressed with how quick construction was, the quality of the work and the ease of which the process seemed to flow. There were no lull periods and the house was finished well before the projected date.
My family and I have since settled in nicely to our first home. The process was a dream all thanks to Brad Keir and his highly professional team at Keir constructions. We will always recommend Brad Keir to anyone who’s considering building a new home.
The Lomax family
Brad and the Team at Keir Constructions have provided fantastic service to us throughout the whole building process. We were first time builders so we were not sure what to anticipate. We had heard all the usual rumors of building to be very stressful including the likelihood of “budget blowouts” and “hidden costs” associated with building. Overall, building our first home with Keir was a very positive experience and would not hesitate recommending them or building with them again.
Keir constructions were upfront and transparent at the very beginning with all costs associated with building our dream home. We were even assigned a color consultant to go through and pick out all our colors, fixtures and fittings before we started building. In addition to this, Keir Constructions allowed enough money in our budget for these things so we could choose from a range of good quality appliances so you won’t have to fork out extra money to get something that looks decent.
We had no hidden costs throughout the whole process and we found their prices to be the most competitive in the market. We also asked a lot of questions throughout the building process. Brad and the friendly team would answer all enquiries promptly and definitely held our hand whilst we were understanding the building process.
In summary, if you are a first time builder and on a budget – you can’t go past Keir Constructions. They didn’t win 9 HIA Awards for nothing J Thanks for making our dreams come true Keir!
Angela & Tony Banks
After deciding to build an investment property, my husband and I started the arduous task of searching for the right builder for us. We are both very busy and were conscious that we had limited time to invest in overseeing a build. It was for this reason that we decided to build with Keir. Once we met Brad it became obvious that he has created a successful business by placing great emphasis on building a good reputation, which only comes with providing a quality service. Our home is now complete and I can honestly say that it was a stress free experience and we got exactly what we wanted.
Shane and Katie
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
My name is Paul Corn, Director of Handovers.Com Pty Ltd. I wish to advise that my inspectors and I have inspected houses in Townsville built by Brad Keir Constructions and we have all agreed that these houses are some of the best quality finishes we have ever seen.
Brad Keir Constructions has everyone from the Supervisors and their trades, to understand the process and what is required of the finish and this has resulted in a great product at the end of the build.
The quality of the houses, in our experience, is very rare to see in our business and this is a testament to Brad Keir Constructions in their understanding of what their clients expect.
Well done to all concerned.
Mr. Paul Corn, Director - Handovers.com Pty Ltd
Hi Brad, Gavin, Sharon & Staff,
This is the third time I've used your company to build. I've been blown away yet again by the quality and service in the building of my new investment property.
Every step of the process was made very easy. You instantly asked questions to understand my needs and suggested quality solutions to deliver on them. Your experience and style instilled instant trust with me and I could not be happier with the outcome. It is refreshing and "rare" these days to come across a builder that is customer and quality focused and able to deliver on that proposition. This is the third time I've used your Company to build with and you have never failed to exceed my expectations.
Thanks again to all involved.
We wanted to get into our first home for a while but we hadn't come to a final decision on whether to build or purchase an existing home. After stumbling across the Keir constructions website we were very impressed with what we were reading and seeing, so when we went to the Kalynda Chase display home we were surprised to be able to meet the man behind it all Brad Keir. From the first meeting we were very impressed, Brad was sincere and we could see that he genuinely wanted to help us get into our first home.
After previously looking through other display homes and talking to the sales representatives we could see that if we built with Keir constructions not only would we be getting a personal committed service by being able to deal directly with Brad but that he also offers beautiful homes and quality fixtures at an affordable price, added to this was the 80 day building guarantee that no other builder could come close to.
The decision was easy, we decided to build with Keir Constructions and only a few short months later we had the keys to our first home. We didn't think it would be achievable to build a home that we wanted on our budget, but Brad and his team made it possible. We are very happy with our new home and glad we chose to build with Keir Constructions.
Thank you for making our dream a reality!
Doug Stevens & Sherie Everingham
After previously having a bad experience building, we were very unsure about heading down that path again.
That was until we walked into the Keir Constructions display home at North Shore and met Belinda.
From day one when we were just enquiring about plans, prices and budgets and right through the complete process, we were made to feel like family and felt comfortable contacting the staff with any queries or concerns we had and we were amazed at how
fast and smooth it all went.
We also really liked the fact that Sharon would email us regularly letting us know what was being carried out with our house over the
next few days/weeks and would also email photos through from time to time.
Brad promised us the day we signed our contract that we will build our next house through Keir Constructions and he is absolutely
right. We certainly will not go elsewhere and will be recommending Keir Constructions to all of our friends and family.
We would like to thank Brad Keir and all of his wonderful staff for making our building process quick, easy and problem free and for
turning our dreams into reality!
Bianca & Jason
No doubt the most professional building team you will find in Townsville. Nothing more can be said. As like all the other testimonials, you will not be disappointed with your Keir constructions building experience.
A big thank you to Brad, Sharon and the best building supervisor in the world, Gavin.
Paul & Karen
We saved and looked for 3 years. No other builder in Townsville could beat Keir on affordability, professionalism, flexibility and designs. Time and again we kept coming back to the Keir Display homes. Their values, quality and designs met our needs better than any other could. We have not been disappointed that we built with Keir Constructions and neither will you.
After purchasing our block in Kalynda Chase, we hadn't fully thought through what it was exactly that we wanted in a house. With being in the Army we had certain time constraints to get the project underway and completed. We spoke with numerous people about who were good builders in town, and Keir Constructions name kept popping up. We spoke to Brad, got our own design drafted, and from their the rest is history. Keir Constructions got our home completed in 60 days.
As this was the first time we have built, had our own floor plan and had a budget to stick to, we were very glad to have Brad and his expert team to guide us through the pitfalls. One of the things that makes Keir Constructions stand out above others is the professionalism, knowledge, enthusiasm and dedication of the whole team. From Brad & Sharon in the office, Gavin who makes everyone run like clock work, to all his tradesmen, work was always completed in a quality, timely and professional manner, with anyone in the team being fully approachable to talk to about any questions we had.
So Thanks Brad & Team, you have another happy customer, I would recommend your services to anyone looking at building a new home. Also thanks to Shane at Bill & Ben the kitchen men for producing an awesome kitchen for us, your guidance on layout was spot on, and the quality of the work is excellent.

Coming up to 1 year already at our new home, I thought I would touch base to let you know how fantastic we are going in our new home!
It all began middle of last year when I started the task of trying to find a suitable builder to build our family home. This was to be my 7th built dwelling and I had previously had nothing but trouble with builders. We decided to go with Keir Constructions, they made the experience truly enjoyable. It was the entire team who were a pleasure to deal with at all times, right from their interior decorator Annette, Gavin the building supervisor, Sharon in admin, Shane from Bill and Bens Cabinet men who provided excellent tips for designing our beautiful kitchen and cabinets and Brad Keir the builder himself! There was also a high quality of workmanship from the entire trades team involved!
I had already done the draft plan and had shopped around and obtained 10 different quotes, not only were Keir the best priced in terms of value for money, but were the best quality and offered the best service.
We often met during the building process and each time they proudly kept us uptodate on the work just completed, the next stage update and to address any questions we might of had at the time. They really did give extreme attention to detail! I asked a million questions and everyone always got back to me quickly and kindly! Nothing was too much trouble!
It was quick build time too! I really didnt believe a home of our size could be built so quickly but it was, in just under 16 weeks as promised! (and thats with a bit of rain in between).
Even on the day of handover they meet us on site and gave us a gift and took photos and really made the day a special one!
And during cyclone Yasi well that wasnt no concern at all!
For anyone looking at building a new home or investment property, I would highly recommend Keir Constructions!
They made our house a home!
Now we are looking at building another investment property and I will definitely be going with Keir Constructions and not even looking anywhere else!
Thanks to everyone at Keir Construction!!!!
We can not believe how fortunate we were to walk through the display home at North Shore and have the opportunity to speak directly with you. This chance meeting resulted in our decisions to utilise Keir constructions to build our house.
From the outset we found you to be honest and up front. We gave you some very specific instruction and a tight budget that we knew would be difficult to achieve. The fact that other builders either failed to meet our budget or alternatively our requirements, highlighted the fact that you listened to us and were willing to work hard to satisfy our needs.
As this is an investment property it was important to have a quick construction period. Given our previous experience we hoped to have it finished in time for the December school holidays. You have delivered us a property with the highest quality finishes, in an unbelievably short timeframe of thirteen weeks.
Your commitment to communicate openly with us resulted in a stress free building experience, something that contrasts significant from our previous experience. Your enthusiasm for this project has been obvious from our first meeting and is evident in the quality of the finished product.
We have had no hesitation in recommending the team at Keir constructions to our friends and we will continue to do so into the future.
We look forward to working with you again,
Jacen and Michelle
Having spoken to several other builders, it was recommended by a friend that we talk to Keir Constructions. We genuinely feel so very lucky that we were able to have Brad and his team build our home.
We spoke directly to Brad right from the start, and he helped us with our own design and was able to look at our budget (not the biggest in history) and straight away tell us what we could expect in our home, which was more than we had imagined. We never really expected to be able to build our dream home on the budget we had, so easily and hassle free.
It was a delight to deal with Brad, Sharon and Gavin who were all only a phone call away, or email. They always returned calls and let us know what was happening well in advance, a truly friendly yet professional approach.
Brad's interior designer Annette really knows her stuff, and made colours and décor a synch while Shane from Bill and Ben the cabinet men provides invaluable tips for designing the kitchen and cabinets (and entire house if you let him).
Most people have heard ‘horror' stories of builders in Townsville, many friends of ours have had regrettable dealings with various other builders in the past and we feel sorry for them that they didn't give Keir a call.
I want to sincerely thank you Brad, Sharon and Gavin for giving us the gift of a ‘home' to raise our family.
Michael and Melissa
Once again I am glad I chose to build with Keir the experience so far has been stress free and trust you will continue to succeed and enhance your reputation with every house you build.
"Keir Construction the builder synonymous to Quality and Integrity"
The service from Keir Constructions has been great from the beginning. Brad and his team really listened to our requirements and came back to us with plans that met what we were looking for and most importantly met our budget. The color consultant and cabinetry people were also really helpful.
Overall we have ended up with a home with quality finishes that we love to live in. The build was hassle free and completed a month before we expected. We recommend Keir Constructions to anyone looking at building a new home.
Katrina and David Christen
Dear Brad & Team
We would like to personally thank you for our first home building experience.
Our house designers firstly recommended we use Keir Contructions and we thank them for the recommendation.
Right from the start you and your team were more than helpful with anything we needed to know, from our first meeting with Graham Chetland at the display home to meeting with you and Gavin and the rest of the team as building progressed. Nothing was ever a problem and that's a great feeling when you are a first homebuilder.
The meeting with Annette the colour consultant was invaluable as our tile selection has the wow factor. Shane from Bill and Ben the Cabinet Men was so great to deal with, his knowledge of kitchens is exceptional. I stand in my kitchen and just love it, I think its exactly what I had dreamed it would be and much more. Thank you also to Sharon for recommending Darren from Blinds for You as his suggestions were perfect.
Since moving into our new home many of our friends and relatives have commented on the high quality of workmanship by the entire trades team involved.
With our house being the first that you built in Ayr, any troubles with distance was defiantly not an issue.
You and Gavin were always available either by phone or email to discuss anything, anytime.
We wanted a totally finished product with our home, right down to landscaping, sprinklers, fencing etc.and all this was arranged and completed flawlessly. Giving us our fully complete dream home.
Alf & Diane Wheadon
For many couples, building a new home is a major financial and emotional decision. As we were building for the first time, we were well aware of the ‘horror' stories often associated with the building industry. Words cannot express how fortunate we are to have made the right decision from the start, by selecting Brad Keir and his entire team at Keir Constructions, with the design and construction of our new home.
From our first meeting with Brad, we were instantly impressed by his knowledge, enthusiasm and passion for the building industry. Brad and Gavin (Keir Constructions Building Supervisor) were always approachable and met with us often during the building process to keep us appraised on the next stage of construction, or to address any questions we may have had during the process. The high expectations and attention to detail that both have for their new homes, transpires into the finished product which is a modern, stylish and functional masterpiece!
Sharon (Keir Constructions Administration) was always available for us to contact, and provided invaluable feedback and updates on the building scheduling for the upcoming weeks. Brad, Gavin and Sharon ensured that construction was planned to run successively between the various tradespeople, and as a result, the whole construction process ran smoothly, effortlessly and for us, well ahead of schedule!
We were thoroughly impressed with the entire building process and would not hesitate to recommend Keir Constructions to anyone considering building a new home!
David and Amanda Whalan
Dear brilliant builder of mine Brad,
Just thought I would check in and reiterate that the house is looking absolutely amazing.
You mentioned in a previous email that when locked up, you would need to give Wayne and I a set of keys. I imagine that can't be too far away considering what great pace you and your team is making. Wayne and I are a little (correction...ALOT) excited and get out there every few days so as soon as it is locked up, swing me an email and I will drop around for a set of keys so we can keep sticky beaking hehe.
Did you have an idea what the finishing date would be? Doesn't have to be exact, an estimate would suffice. We couldn't remember if you told us a finishing date or not.
Anyway just so you know I have been talking you up all around Townsville and Brad, you have probably noticed, but I talk ALOT. Haha. So don't be suprised if all of Townsville suddenly pays your office a visit, keen for you to build their homes :D
Anyhow, enough of my dribble, thanks again champion :)
We shall be in touch soon I imagine!
Dear Keir Constructions Team,
I would like to express my appreciation for the great quality of your build. Our new home has withstood the cyclone without any water leaks or damages.
Again thanks for a great job!
Just a note to you now that we have settled into our new home at Nerang Court.
We would like to express our thanks to you, Sharon and Gavin for giving us an enjoyable experience in the building of our new home. Family and friends tried to persuade us not to build but we were determined to have the house that we were both happy with and that has certainly been the result.
From the very start when we first met you Brad, we felt comfortable with you and were convinced that you were not all talk and no action. This has proved to be the case and we are delighted with the finished product. Nothing was too much trouble for you and you certainly kept to your motto of "there are no problems only solutions".
We would also like to congratulate you on your choice of sub contractors, especially Shane at Bill and Ben the Cabinet Men and Darren at Blinds for You. They were especially helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble.
Since moving in we have had a few small teething problems and these have been dealt with by Gavin promptly and efficiently.
We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is contemplating building a new home and we wish you every success for the future.
Kath and Noel Elms
Choosing a builder in today's economic climate is half the challenge of building a house. You have to ask yourself questions like,who can we trust? Who provides a quality product? Who will even finish our hosue? I was chatting to a work colleague prior to making that decision and he spoke highly of his experiences with you, knew we were fuss. He even told us "Brad likes a challenge, he will enjoy building your home".
That is what lead us to your office, armed with a scrap piece of paper with a rough floor design, a heap of magazine clippings, a head full of ideas and a budget. We fully expected that something had to give and we could not be so lucky to get it all however we left your office fairly confident with our ideas, pleased we had found our builder.
From word go, you and your team delivered making us feel we were the most important part of the building process. Last time we built, we were locked out watching progress through windows. This time, we were welcomed, provided with a key so we could watch our home evolves from insdie out, adding to the excitement of daily progress.
We were encouraged to meet all our tradesmen in person, which was very pleasing because we were confident throughout the entire process that our expectation were understood and we were getting what we wanted first time.
Even on the day of hand over, we unexpectedly received a gift from you, as if our house wasn't enough.
When we came to meet you Brad, we had a strict time frame, a vivid picture in our minds and a budget. You smashed the time frame, stayed well within budget and far exceeded our expectations. I would without hesitation recommend you to anyone for a stress and hassle free building experience. If we were willing to leave our new home, we would definitely build with Keir Constructions time and time again. At hand over we said to you that we had had a mental picture of what we had wanted and infact you had built us better, we would change nothing about our new home and love that it is ours.
To Brad and thte team at Keir Constructions, Thank you for building us our dream home.
Adrian, Lisa, Tahlia and Dylan
I just wanted to say thank you for building us a beautiful home, we are thoroughly enjoying every bit of it.
We were referred to you by a friend of ours and we cannot thank him enough. Before seeing you we'd been through a few display homes and had spoken to a couple of other well known builders around Townsville. We were sceptical of building as we'd only heard negative comments about other builders such as "My house took 18 months to build", "We never spoke to the builder only the staff", "Our calls were never returned", "It's not what we wanted but now we're stuck with it" and "I would never build again".
These types of comments had us scared as anything as we'd never built before and it did not sound enjoyable.
However, after the first meeting with you I felt at ease and we made the decision to go ahead with building our new home.
Right from the start everything was easy. I never once felt stressed about building our new home, we enjoyed every minute of it. From working with you designing the house layout to working with the interior designer everything was great.
Annette was wonderful to work with and helped us heaps with making decisions on colours, tiles, carpets & blinds etc (we didn't realise how hard it is to try and ‘imagine' your home with colours). You have always been just a phone call or email away. It's been great having someone so approachable and easy to contact and who has been happy to answer some of the silliest questions.
And to actually speak to the person building our home, not an admin member made things flow without difficulty.
The house flew, within 3.5 months we were looking at our new beautiful home. I must say that it's even better than I could've imagined. We have only received compliments from all of our family and friends and I know for a fact that my mum and aunty will be building their next home with you.
Thank you for making this whole experience an enjoyable one and our dream come true. I know we will definitely be building our next home with you !!
Mel & Chris
I am just sending this email to thank you for such an enjoyable experience building with your company you definitely delivered a fantastic looking home and would recommend you to any one so don't go any were in a hurry you still will have to design our family home.
Thanks for everything will be in touch when we are ready for our next investment.
Amanda & Chris Yow
First of all I would like to thank you and everyone at Keir Constructions for the completion of my new home. As this is my first home that I have ever owned/build, to say I was extremely nervous is an understatement. I had heard some horror stories of the building trade that made me want to shy away from building.
Making the decision to go and see the house and land package that you had on offer was the best thing I have ever done. My excitement and seeing how lovely the house looked made me feel more comfortable with my decision to build and to use Keir Constructions.
Throughout the whole process and even after completion you and your team have been extremely helpful and most of all, accommodating to my needs and sometimes my silly questions.
The best thing of all was the fact that you picked up on all the little niggling problems in the house which I would not have known or noticed and rectified straight away. There were hardly any to speak of and this can only be attributed to the high quality of workmanship in the building.
I walk in through my front door everyday and feel extremely lucky to have picked a builder that cares about changing people's lives and giving them a home. Your professionalism is one to be commended and I would like to say THANK YOU for building my home.
I would also like to pass on my thanks to everyone concerned with in my project and would be pleased for you to use this letter as reference to anyone considering using your company.
Mate, a house is one of the largest mile stones in our lives. Many dream of a white picket fence around their own castle, and you make that happen. You make the dream.
As a young couple, we looked for months. Display village from display village, builders to builders, but something was always off. When we walked into your Kalynda Chase Display Home we knew straight away that we wanted this builder to create our dream home.
The difference in a good house and a great house is attention to detail. There was no aspect of your work overlooked. You maintain the highest standard of quality always striving for perfection. This coupled with your approachable personality and considerate nature has got to make you the best builder in Townsville.
Lastly, but definitely not least, is the team of professional and experienced colleagues you have around you.
Gavin Edwards supervising the build was always on top of the situation. Shane from Bill and Ben the cabinet men not only designed our entertaining kitchen but also our vanity units. Annette the interior designer, without whom I'm certain I'd have pink walls. And Rick from Ribec landscaping who constantly drops by to check the greenest grass on the street.
Thank you mate, for you have created our dream.
Jonathan & Hana
Where do we start when we were so impressed with our building experience? When such a fast construction period is mentioned, it is easy to assume that corners were cut and quality was compromised. This could not be further from the truth.
Brad, you have produced a true show-piece for us to be able to call our home with pride, a stunning display of craftsmanship from one of the easiest to deal with builders in Townsville. You have a fantastic team surrounding you that made the entire process that much easier for us, and lets face it, building a new home is not a stress-free experience.
The one thing that really stood out with all your team was their overwhelming desire to achieve high levels of customer satisfaction, in particular Shane from Bill & Ben The Cabinet Men, and Rick from Ribec Landscaping. Please pass on our appreciation to all your team.
So impressed with our building experience were we, that I have recommended your services to two of my work colleagues. I believe that one of them has already engaged your services and work is to commence shortly. I have no doubt they will have a similar experience to us and be in their new homes before they know it.
For us to be able to recommend your services to others speaks volumes in terms of our positive experience and your quality of work and customer service.
Mark and Ranita
Although price is always a major factor, our decision to build was not based upon price alone. For us, making a decision on price alone never really guaranteed we would make a good choice, in fact, we usually found it quickly became a "bad" choice! We wanted the best "value" for our money and "value" was evident from Day One in our decision to build with Brad Keir of Keir Constructions.
We built with Keir Constructions because we wanted to deal with someone like Brad who owned the business, not a salesman who overpromised and undelivered because they have no control over the building process. From our first meeting with Brad he was so thoroughly genuine and honest.
As the house was being built, our decision to go with Keir Constructions became more and more justified with the ease, efficiency and quality at each stage of the project.
We can only describe Brad's organisational skills as "impeccable"!, and when we were told what was going to happen, it actually happened exactly when we were told it would happen! As we knew what to expect over coming weeks this helped us to make sure we were organised for Brad also.
When we hear of our friends/colleagues house building "horror" experiences with other larger builders, we were so relieved not to have experienced the same lack of interest, concern or drama. We were constantly amazed at just how easy it all went.
We would like to thank Gavin Edwards of Keir Constructions. Gavin supervised construction of the house also. We found Gavin could not do enough for us and shared Brad's eye for detail. Nothing was ever too much trouble during the process.
Lastly, we can only speak very highly of Brad to all of our family and friends. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to build and if we ever needed to build again Brad would be the first person we would go to.
Neal & Jodi Larsen
We needed to down size from our large family home to a smaller home which would have some of the features we loved most in our previous home. A spacious lounge, a versatile kitchen and a shade house for our plants. Also we wanted plenty of natural lighting, ease of maintenance, a compact workshop for the handyman and front and rear patios. All of this had to fit on a small block of land which was 368sqmtrs. This seemed a daunting task until we visited two Keir Constructions Display Homes, and although they were not exactly what we were looking for they had many features which we liked and the quality of workmanship was noticeable.
The ball started rolling when we showed them what we would like and within a few visits they came up with a design that met our criteria. Their interest in being able to build our dream home did not end there. They arranged for us to meet with the experts who would be involved in cabinet making, colour co-ordination, lighting, tiling, solar etc. When building neared completion the foreman liaised with us to finalise paving, pathways and landscaping.
Our home was built in 58 working days and at handover we were welcomed by Brad and Sharon who presented us with the keys and some most thoughtful gifts. Keir Constructions have demonstrated true professionalism in each and every aspect of our build. They built for us our beautiful and functional home of which we are immensely proud.
A big “THANK YOU” to Brad and all of his team!
Keith and Robyn
In 2015 we decided to built our dream house with Keir Constructions. Firstly we met the Keir team at one of their display homes. We had our own unique design and requirements with special needs. From the start the team listened and made helpful suggestions. They were clear with all the inclusions and exclusions which meant that their were no surprises later on.
Throughout the build they send us constant updates and the team was happy for us to go through the house whenever required. The communication between the office and onsite team was very well done which ment we did 't have to worry about anything. The onsite team included us with all the detailed decisions and understood our special situation.
Even after the build, Brad and his team have been amazing. Any defects or concerns we had were quickly rectified.
Keir Constructions are very professional with a extreme high quality of finish. We are very grateful for the understanding team.
Ben & Richa
It's been a while. I just wanted to touch base with you and send through my very belated testimonial from our build with you guys at 6 Crystal Cres Mt Margaret Estate.
It's been a year since moving in to our beautiful home. We couldn't be happier! From the first moment we walked through a Keir display house we were very impressed with the finishes and quality. We met Belinda at the North Shore display village and for Nathan and myself we instantly got a friendly, comfortable vibe from her. The changes we made through the design and build were never too much trouble and each decision was met with professionalism and ease. When it came to picking the colours and tiles, I can't fault our experience with Anne from the Coloured House. Her support, encouragement and amazing knowledge made the day very enjoyable.
Huge thank you extends to Brad, Sharon and all the Keir team. Brad you always made time for us and made us feel like we were the only clients and your top priority. Each time we met it reinforced to me that we had made the right choice with you and your amazing team.
At the end of the build we have a first class home which is perfect for our family needs. The wonderful finishing touches with our gifts were greatly appreciated! And here we are a year later and the service still continues! The Keir team really goes above and beyond and we have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone looking for a professional, experienced and reliable team to build their dream home!!
Nathan & Michelle
