Please read the testimonials from our previous clients which we have also provided below to help you make an informed decision when looking to renovate or extend with Powell Built.

West Lakes

“When we purchased the house we knew that we had to undertake a reasonable amount of renovating to bring it back to its best. Unfortunately, we didn’t appreciate or fully understand just how badly the house had been allowed to deteriorate. Initially I had thought of project managing the renovation myself and bringing in specialists for the various components of the rebuild. However, after a couple of weeks I realised that there was a significant amount of coordination required and came to the conclusion that I needed an experienced builder. Having had some exposure to Powell Built which had done an excellent job on renovating my son’s home, I felt that they would be the right company to undertake our project. For us it was the right decision. Although we had a basic plan of the work that needed to be undertaken, we needed a degree of flexibility due to the number of unforeseen problems that were encountered. Powell Built provided that flexibility and often found innovative solutions to difficult issues. We certainly liked the ‘can do’ approach and nothing seemed to be beyond them. The result speaks for itself and we are very happy with the outcome.

Matthew Powell has built an excellent team of tradespeople around him and in our experience he is someone that can be trusted to provide a high quality result. We have no hesitation in recommending Powell Built and would certainly use them again.”


"From dream to reality.  A big thanks to Matt and his team at Powell Built for the fantastic outcome they achieve on the extensions and renovations to our home at Stirling. Powell Built was responsible right from the concept design to the finished product. 

The building process was complicated by the fact that the family, including three children, lived in the home during construction but it was managed efficiently and thoughtfully. We could not be happier with the final result in terms of design and the quality of workmanship and we love living in our new space."

"We have recently finished this project in Cheltenham. The client had a clear brief to accommodate for their expanding family to create a functional, practical living environment. The polished concrete floor throughout the lower level, including the bathroom, the exposed timber trusses and re-use of the rear wall of the existing cottage as a splash back/feature all blend well to create this striking addition."

Cumberland Park

"5 years of work and our family home is almost complete. It's an absolute dream to walk into this kitchen everyday .. we are still pinching ourselves! A big thank you to our builders Powell Built for all your help and hard work over this year. Looking forward to relaxing in our new home."

"The final outcome has been absolutely fantastic, we now feel that we have a modern, good quality home with plenty of light, a large kitchen, second bathroom and lots of room to entertain."

College Park

"Powell Built completely restored our 1880's Villa in College Park, Adelaide. It was a huge undertaking, with both major structural works & complex interior refurbishments. It was literally an un-liveable shell prior to this, & is now our lovely family home restored to its former glory. It was a very challenging project, with the home pretty much requiring a total overhaul; new roof, new structural beams, walls shifted, pluming, wiring, fireplace restorations, painting, plastering, moulding - everything. At all times Matthew & his team were available & communicated exceptionally well the entire way. Could not recommend Powell Built more highly. Now for the extension..."

- Matt & Annie


"Having previously used Powell Built for a ground floor extension I didn’t hesitate to contract them again to do a second story renovation. Our job ran ahead of schedule and on budget and was completed sooner than anticipated. I was hesitant to remain living in the house while the extension was being built around us but Powell Built were very considerate of our privacy and were able to complete the project with minimal disruption to our lives. Having used them on two separate renovations spanning ten years I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them in Adelaide & have already done so to friends and colleagues. Thank you Matthew Powell and all the guys who contributed to our job…we are very happy with the result."
