We have placed a high level of trust in Ivy Constructions, and they have consistently delivered quality
results while seamlessly operating within the busy campus environment. Furthermore, their effective
communication with a diverse range of stakeholders and their commitment to maintaining a high level of
safety and presentation on their worksites have been crucial to the success of each project.

I wholeheartedly endorse Ivy Constructions to anyone in search of a construction company that
consistently exceeds expectations.

“Ivy Constructions successfully completed the works to the total satisfaction of the client, tenants,
architect, and Heritage Victoria. Hugo Beresford acted as site manager for the duration of the project
and was at all times professional, communicative, and should be commended for his attention to detail
and efficacy in delivering the works.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Ivy Constructions for future works of this nature. They
have once again demonstrated their professionalism and technical proficiency in delivering this project,
as with many other projects completed with Lovell Chen.”

“The University of Melbourne Campus Services along with the management from the University House Club, are very pleased and satisfied by the quality of workmanship and the professionalism by Ivy Constructions.
The restoration / remediation works of the building facade and roofing replacement, has transformed and improved the exterior of the University House immensely. The whole team should be very proud of the final result, which was project managed extremely well by Hugo Beresford and fellow staff and highly competent sub-contractors and the careful guidance by Lovell Chen Heritage Architects (Project Superintendent). Well done and thank you again, for the works that were carried out in 2020, during very trying conditions.”
