Great company to work with – helped us figure out a lot of design issues based on their wealth of experience. Appreciated their honesty and integrity. We used them to design and build our extension which we are delighted with. Happy clients!

Renovations Case Study 1
Strata Transformation | Alfred Cove

With a neighbour sharing a brick wall, IQ Renovations needed to diplomatically construct and perform this transformation. Given that much of the existing was to remain, the unit had to be stripped right back and then extended. This created exposure risks in the construction process that needed to be addressed. Using extensive planning and project management techniques, the custom designed renovation was pre-fabricated of site.

By the time the roof was stripped back, the majority of the home had already been constructed, was carted to site and erected in a two week time frame window. Interference to the existing home and neighbour was minimal and the transformation completed. Wanting to also have a unique finish, the client selected cedar lining to the balcony and entrance, acrylic rendering externally, a floating stair case, bifold doors, glass balustrade and quality fittings throughout, turning the existing single story 2×1 home into an eye popping 4×2 home.

Renovations Case Study 2
Ground Floor Extension | Cardup

Running out of space for the growing family, an extension was designed and along with it, a facelift to the front elevation. Using timber framed construction with the insulation panel system resulting in a high energy rating, the design provided the required solutions of space and storage, as well as an appropriate sized carport. With the family living in the dwelling during the construction, we boarded up the section that was being renovated, to reduce dust, noise and interference with family life, as well as ensure the site was safely cordoned off.

During the process, changes were often made as the finished product became easier to visualize and the client had a better idea of what it would look like. We made the changes as we progressed, providing the client the flexibility and the finished product they desired.

IQ Constructions came on board at the design phase of our renovation and helped with overcoming engineering difficulties, made suggestions for improvements and did all the hard work of getting it through council.

As the project unfolded they maintained close communication in regards to progress, difficulties and changes and were always willing to work with our requirements and stipulations. This included other minor improvements and changes to other parts of our house. A range of friendly sub-contractors performed quality work to supplement the tasks undertaken by the IQ team. All this occurred while we remained living on the property with our large family. In the end we were given the keys to a wonderful addition that was even better than we could have ever imagined.

IQ Constructions under the capable leadership of John Bron would be our first choice for any building requirements

Renovations Case Study 3
Country Home Extension | Darling Downs

We gave the task of a major renovation of our home to IQ Construction, after a recommendation from a friend. We are extremely pleased with the result, and also with the entire process, which could potentially be quite disruptive because we stayed in the home during the renovation.

John and Dwayne kept us involved & informed through every step, from initial documentation to final handover. They have a very clear focus on quality and what impressed us most is the attitude and professionalism of the tradespeople they employ. The project was finished within budget and in less time than anticipated and we definitely recommend IQ Construction to anyone in need of a professional builder!
