Cassari Group take a lot of pride in the services we provide and the projects we build. Please see what our clients have had to say below
Site Architecture Studio has been requested to provide a reference for Cassari Group who recently completed an alterations and additions project for us at Hale School Junior Boarding House – Brine House ($0.5M). This is the second project Site Architecture Studio has had experience working with Cassari Group and they were selected for the performance on this past project, a $1.8M Mixed use development in Floreat.
Staff Cooperation & Systems
The Hale project was managed and administered through the construction phase by Cassari Group in an efficient and professional manner. Lorenzo Cassiani,managed and supervised the project and was always available. He was well supported by experienced office staff, systems and protocols which were appropriate in achieving the high level of management and workmanship we demand. Lorenzo and his team worked well to expedite resolving issues which arose on site and were always easy to deal with. Although the project value was small, they gave it the attention we would expect from Contractors on much larger and more complex projects. Lorenzo was always quick to seek advice on issues encountered and worked cooperatively to resolve issues.
Cassari Group had a very tight program to meet the beginning of school term. Cassari were prompt to mobilise the site and manage the shop drawings and fabrication processes prior to the Christmas shut down period. Typical of that time of year, other construction delays and program issues were experienced; however, Cassari worked diligently to make up lost time and completed the project as per the original program. Lorenzo always under committed on their program but always over delivered.
Cassari approached all Contractual matters diligently and appropriately, providing all necessary supporting information to clearly justify all legitimate claims under the Contract. Their submitted Variations were always fair and reasonable. We found Cassari’s Contractual correspondence thorough yet not excessive which makes our administration job easier.
The project occasionally raised design problems which Cassari worked willingly to resolve on site with the view to providing the best possible solution for the project and client. This diligence and ‘can do’ attitude suggests that Cassari values forging good, continuing relationships with its clients and also their trades – a prerequisite for obtaining consistent, good quality which we consider Cassari to achieve.
The works were occupied during the end of the construction and Cassari worked well with the client to meet their safety and operational needs. Lorenzo liaised direct with the client to ensure they were aware of the construction activity on site at all times so disruption to the school was minimised and well managed.
In short, we would recommend Cassari Group to undertake a range of commercial, institutional, and residential projects. We find them a pleasure to deal with and as a result, where appropriate, will continue to request they tender on our projects.
PAUL EDWARDS DIRECTOR, SITE ARCHITECTURE STUDIO
We have had a highly successful building experience working with Cassari builders. There were three notable features in working with Daniel and Lorenzo:
First was the good communication with all parties concerned with the build. The architect was regularly and frequently referred to; as clients (and we were hands on clients) we were involved in the process on a daily basis. Daniel was on the site nearly every day communicating with us and/or the trades people and always available by phone. Solutions were found and problems solved with good humour.
Secondly, Daniel’s selection of skilled trades people combined with constant supervision demonstrated an impressive attention to detail. Linking old with new was sometimes frustrating, but interesting and Cassari was up for the challenge.
Thirdly, the above characteristics are displayed in the quality of the build. A point commented on be visiting builders and architects.
Although small in size our renovation contained a large amount of detail, variety and complexity requiring negotiation, flexibility and adaptability to sometimes complex architectural problems.
As clients we enjoyed the whole process and are happy to recommend the Cassari team.
ERICA & JOHN HARVEY BEACONSFIELD
We have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Lorenzo and his team from Cassari Group.
Lorenzo is very approachable, quick to respond to enquiries and requests, and has proved to be a skilled communicator (responsive to both the Client as well as to our Design Team). Furthermore, Cassari Group’s expert accountancy assisted in keeping both the Client and our firm abreast of all costings.
Not only does the Cassari Group conduct business in a very professional and efficient manner, but they are a pleasure to work with.
We would highly recommend Cassari Group to our clients and we hope to have the opportunity to work with Lorenzo and his team again in the future.
