As the 1st anniversary of our new Empire Building Company Home approach’s
(July 1st), Audrey & I felt compelled to express our gratitude & share our thoughts on our 1st year at 8 Ince Road, Attadale.
The Home has lived up to our expectations in so many ways. The open plan design gives us a sense of space we wouldn’t have thought possible on a 350m2 lot.
The inclusion of double-glazing throughout, gives the home a beautiful sense of being sealed off from the outside world, both in sound and temperature.
Quality of the finishes (timber flooring, tiling etc.) and workmanship is exceptional.
The attention to detail in both design & build.
e.g. (We have since fitted Solar PV to the home & the comment from the installers was how access from top story roof to ground floor electrical meter, was made so easy by your inclusion of a wide access duct down to electrical board)
We are still, to this day, finding small differences in the way your design & build separates our home from other friend’s homes.
The cleaver use of Shadow-line ceiling & wall plaster.
Innovative use of Concrete surfaces in high use or exterior areas.
Integration of MOX Smart home technology, giving us the ability, via a simple app, to control & monitor vital areas while away from the home,
(Lighting, Curtains etc.)
gives us peace of mind & effectively future proofing the home.
We recently had friends visiting from New Zealand, one of whom works for a well known Large Shopping Centre Multi-National, as a building designer with a bias towards new innovation.
His comment…. “You haven’t purchased your new Home,
You’ve purchased your builders idea of his own Dream Home”
Being new to the area, we’ve been making ourselves known to our new neighbours. Without exception, the comments from established owners, who were here during the build at 8 Ince Rd, have expressed their appreciation for the cleanliness of the site & courteous approach of the trades. Some going as far as saying “if we were to build again we would use your builder, Empire BC”.
As with any new construction, we’ve have had reason to call you for window adjustment and minor lighting issues, but your response and resolution has left us in no doubt that Empire has a high priority on post construction relationships.
We have also been left in no doubt, after our 1st year, that we have found our ideal Urban Retreat.
To You & all your Team… Congratulations on having the fore site to create this innovative home, well deserving of it’s HIA Award for 2015 Townhouse of the Year and 2015 Home of the Year Finalist.
Sincerely, Peter & Audrey MORAN
