I just want to express my appreciation for the work you have done on the underpinning of my chimney, it was amazing.
I especially want to voice my admiration and amazement for Tommy - the amount of work he did on the Tuesday was unbelievable. To wheelbarrow out what was three quarter of skip of the dirt he dug out then have to wheelbarrow in the concrete,k up the drive and around the skip (which must have been incredibly difficult) was just unbelievable.
He remained cheerful, pleasant all thru what must have been a exhausting day. He came back on the Friday to finish up and left the place tidy and clean.
I cannot thank you and Tommy enough for the effort.
Claire, Mooroolbark (July 2015)
Techniblock have handled our underpinning work superbly. During the whole experience, they have been considerate towards my family to ensure that the work was carried out efficiently but with as little disturbance to ourselves and our neighbours as possible. We could not have asked for someone better than Jake , who was with us each day. I have never seen anyone work as hard as he did. Each member of my family commented how polite and considerate he was. He is definitely an asset to your company. Thank you all for making what could have been a terrible experience into a smooth and painless one.
Thank you all.
Duncan, Gardenvale (May 2015)
We would like to pass on our thanks to you & your company for the Underpinning work carried out on our home last week. It was our pleasure meeting experts from your company in the lead up to commencement & receiving their professional advice.
In particular I would like to commend Craig for his role as Site Foreman. During 3 days of physically demanding work he worked efficiently, methodically & cheerfully on our property. He has a truly admirable work ethic that restores ones faith in humanity!
Thanks again for the great professional service that your company has provided.
Myee & John, Moonee Ponds (May 2015)
To all at Techniblock. David and I would like to say a big thanks. You guys have been nothing but helpful, quick and efficient with the work at our job in Berwick. A huge thanks to Jake and Scott we couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. Would recommend you guys any day. Thank you.
David & Lisa, Berwick (May 2015)
I just wanted to let you know that Craig and the boys have finished their underpinning job. They were very friendly, efficient and helpful. Craig did a good job of cleaning up afterwards and left the place very tidy. They did a great job. Thanking you.
Kathy, South Morang (May 2015)
We chose Techniblock following a friend’s recommendation for the restumping of our recently purchased home. From the outset everyone we encountered at the company showed great professionalism and excellent communication.
When undergoing complex works, far outside our own understanding, it was reassuring to have everything explained in detail, with all our concerns managed in a courteous and considered way. The guys on site, Selo and Joe, worked tirelessly and always with a smile on their face, I was genuinely impressed by both as professionals, as well as individuals. They were always happy to spend time with me explaining what was happening and would update me with phone calls, text messages and pictures as the project progressed.
We encountered some unexpected challenges with the property and Techniblock were able to call upon their other divisions as well as expert contacts to ensure everything was managed appropriately and to the highest of standards. We were on a very tight time schedule for moving in, this was acknowledged by all the team who did everything they could to complete the job according to our requirements, which included finishing ahead of time so we could have additional works complete in the days before we moved.
I will certainly be recommending you to friends who require your services in the future.
Nick & Sharon, Thornbury (April 2015)
Just a quick shout to the guys that came around to quote and fix the problems I had - everyone was great, friendly and really helpful. I'm really happy with the results.
Andy, Ringwood North (April 2015)
It was a pleasant experience dealing with your company, so consequently we have referred several of our clients to your service.
Denny, Les Kroenert & Associates Pty Ltd (March 2015)
The job done was terrific, the boys were very polite and helpful and did a good job with clean up for us. Very happy. Thank you.
Brenda, Mt Evelyn (March 2015)
You came to us highly recommended and we recommend you highly.
Before we came to you, we couldn't find anyone who was able to take on repairing our house. Once we contacted your company, we received thoughtful and professional expert advice from Rob, who talked us calmly through any concerns. I had lots of questions and he was always patient and explained the process in full. Tommy is also not be more professional and expert in his work. He is a precise practitioner, the house was very carefully looked after. Even our pot plants were ok after this massive job.
Your firm manages to provide old-fashioned professionalism.
As a final point, as a woman on my own, it was so refreshing to deal with people who are entirely gender neutral in their interactions!
Natasha, Brunswick (January 2015)
This is just to say what a great job you did with our re-stumping. We couldn’t be happier not just with the result but also the way Boyd and Eli went about it. They were very thorough and professional and a pleasure to deal with. The house is better than it's ever been. I am more than happy to be a reference if you want me to.
Alan, Clifton Hill (December 2014)
I congratulate you to have two young persons with a great, professional attitude on your payroll. All along the job assigned to them they kept me informed of the progress of the work done and the work to be done. They are a bunch of very intelligent and courteous gentlemen with a great can-do attitude.
I am extremely satisfied with the outcome and would not hesitate to recommend your firm to any relatives, friends and the general public.
Allain, Burwood East (December 2014)
I'd just like to give you some feedback on the remediation work carried out by your team last week. They did a very professional and speedy job, efficiently and even cleared up fully afterwards. Please thank them for us.
We are very happy with your company's level of service to its customers.
David, Elsternwick (December 2014)
Just a note to let you know that the work carried out by Eric and Ryan was excellent and recommend your company to our family and friends.
Bruce, Heathmont (December 2014)
Our experience with Techniblock was excellent from start to finish. Rob provided a comprehensive quote/contract that included much more detail (and value we believe) than their competitors. Then Boyd and Eli carried out the works with a high level of expertise while constantly keeping us updated on progress. It was a (much appreciated) bonus that they were easy to talk with and even strived to minimise disruptions to family's day to day living. We have been very impressed by the quality of work and customer service provided by Techniblock and will not hesitate to recommend to others.
Jade and Victor, Mitcham (December 2014)
Just a little email to thank you and all of the Techniblock staff, especially Damien and his crew, for the underpinning of this brick, double story, set of 12 strata titled residential flats in Sunshine.
The job was co-ordinated and completed in very quick time, in a very safe and professional manner with minimal interference or disruption to any of the tenants.
Damien and his men could not have been more obliging and helpful and we are completely happy with their workmanship and their finished job.
Damien kept us informed on job progress throughout the job and he could not have been more helpful.
They are also a happy crew and obviously like working together.
We would recommend Techniblock without any hesitation to anyone needing their specialist skills.
Kim, Sunshine (November 2014)
Your crew were fantastic and made what could have been a very unpleasant experience most enjoyable.
Their duty of care for all aspects of our property and their decency make us almost miss them. You have a great team there and I reckon you were right, with their experience and attitude they are your greatest asset.
Jeff, Glen Iris (November 2014)
Thank you for your service today. Richard was fantastic.
I have no hesitation to use your services in the future.
Anthony, Ringwood (September 2014)
Thank you so much for your patience & help. We very much appreciate that.
It is also good to know that good services still exists in Australia & you & Rob have shown us that in spades.
Winston & Gwenn, Forest Hill (June 2014)
When you have to fix problems with your home's foundations, it’s great to deal with people that know what they're doing. From turning up on time for the quote, to letting me know what was happening during the approval process and throughout the week of site work, Chris, Rob, Deborah, Jake and Damien did what they promised and answered my extensive questions. Very happy to recommend this company for underpinning Melbourne/ re-blocking work.
Albert, Glen Iris (June 2014)
During the latter half of 2013 I had the good fortune of engaging Techniblock on the St Bartholomew's Church rectification works in Burnley St Richmond. As a Principal Contractor and Heritage Restorer and Building I am very particular about the work that is performed on my projects. I have no hesitation in recommending them to other developers and builders.
We were required to underpin the Church building with 82 micro-piles @ 450mm diameter @ depths ranging from 2.3 metres to 6.3 metres in Type H reactive soil and in some places Type P fill. This was difficult work, particularly considering we were dealing with a water table that threatened to collapse the holes as work proceeded. This did not phase Techniblock and their problem solving contributed significantly to the project being successful.
Techniblock quoted a price for the work and stuck to it. They honoured the Engineers specification and they left the site in an exemplary condition. Considering that a significant amount of my work is with Churches I found the conduct of Techniblock staff to be polite and considerate. It was a pleasure to work with them.
Andrew, Richmond (May 2014)
We would like to thank the Techniblock company and all its workers for the excellent job they did in improving the foundations of the house and the underpinning.
I want to give special thanks to Craig for his hard work throughout the entire time the house was under development. He was a very hard working person who came in early in the morning and worked till later than the rest. And he always cleaned up both his and others' areas after finishing the day.
I also especially appreciate and thank Rob's professional effort fixing the wall issue on the last day and from the beginning of our house job.
Sona, Rowville (May 2014)
Thanks to Techniblock for a great job on our very crooked house. Robert's initial inspection, explanation and quote was the only 1 that gave us any confidence. Damien and his crew then did a great job adding stumps and relevelling, consulting and communicating the whole time with obvious expertise and care for quality of the job. Great people. Exceeded all expectations. Came recommended and will gladly do the same. Thanks again.
Jeff & Jacqui, Balwyn (April 2014)
Compliments on the easy going and highly professional team that did our job would have no problem referring Techniblock to family and friends thanks for a job well done.
Ray, Carlton (April 2014)
On behalf of SMA Projects Australia Pty Ltd I would like to thankyou and your team in completing a challenging underpinning project for the development of Yorkshire Apartments in Collingwood. The project was difficult in nature but your company made the whole process from the early period of consulting to design options up to the implementation, was done with the professionalism and a smile. The challenge was to underpin an old heritage building that is listed with Heritage Victoria and built in the 1860's that was being converted into apartments.
Through the construction of the underpins we encountered problems that was unforeseen with the ground where fill material was used as backfill and perched water made what was designed by the engineer difficult to achieve in some areas. We were then required to have part of the works redesigned for the underpinning on the north wall.
Techniblock at no stage did they become despondent or negative but just continued with getting the job done efficiently and to program. As the developer/builder their is not much more that I could have requested from them. For any future works, I would highly recommend Techniblock for any underpinning works.
Dino, Collingwood (April 2014)
Can you please advise Robert that I am very happy with the works. It took a week, and with minimum disruption to the adjoining unit, and to the garden. The pet rabbits didn’t escape through the underfloor heating ducts. Internal cracking was to be expected because there was a 30mm difference in floor levels. The builders cleaned up all the rubbish when they left.
Suzanne, Boronia (March 2014)
I have known Mr. Chris Bell for several years now. Over the last twelve months we have been working with Chris in his capacity as the owner of Techniblock Pty Ltd, Underpinners and Reblockers.
We have been supplying Chris and his staff with the engineering designs and drawings for many of their projects.
Chris and his staff are professional and innovative.
Chris is efficient, reliable and inventive in his approach to projects. Chris has a good understanding of engineering plans and I have found from working with him that he has a good understanding of what is required on site. I knew Chris when he was an area manager for a large domestic building company and can thus vouch for his structural and building knowledge in relation to construction for one and two storey as well as multi-unit developments.
Techniblock staff are very experienced in underpinning with both conventional underpins and with bored reinforced concrete piles. They are knowledgeable and efficient in their application to the projects they undertake.
Both Chris Bell and his staff are very safety conscious and their sites are well controlled.
In my opinion, as a consulting engineer of many years experience in the field of structural, civil and geotechnical engineering Techniblock and Chris Bell have the expertise and business structure to handle work on multi-unit sites. I recommend Techniblock and Chris Bell to you.
David, Structural Works (February 2014)
I must thank you sincerely for the hire of the equipment and Richard's labour at no cost. It was very much appreciated by the members of our Rotary Club and Aurora School and especially by myself.
Richard stayed to help pour the concrete into all the new bored holes and to ensure the job was done correctly he set up a lazer level.
Hank, Rotary Club of Nunawading (January 2014)
Project Group engaged Techniblock for the underpinning works at the Cricket Club Hotel, South Melbourne. These works consisted of six hit and miss underpins to an adjoining 3 storey brick building. We worked closely with Techniblock and their engineer to reduce the amount of underpins, devise a sequence and provide certification of works.
These works were technical, over 4 metres deep in places and the access was a challenge. Techniblock and their site team delivered as promised with regard to quality and programme. Their expertise was invaluable in the safe and timely delivery of these works. I highly recommend Techniblock for all underpinning works.
Ben, Project Group (September 2013)
To the Team at Techniblock.
Thank you for doing a great job on the underpinning at our home. Big thank you to Paul who did the digging and to Rob who explained everything to us, as the job was being completed. All the guys who worked on the site were very obliging and friendly. Would not hesitate to recommend your company.
Phil & Sue, Ferntree Gully (May 2013)
Sallyann and Myself would just like to express our thanks and gratification at the work that Rob and his team performed in re-leveling our property. Also, not just the quality of work and results but also the professionalism in which it was carried out. Before any work was undertaken Rob went over the problems and laid out quite simply what could be achieved and why, which set our expectations clearly and precisely.
Rob and his team (my apologies as I can not remember each individual name) were ALL courteous polite and professional in all manners of work. Our house no longer creaks and cracks of a night time and all doors now shut without jamming. Best of all our worst fears were put to rest as we thought we might need to restump the entire house. Of course, we were extremely happy that all the quoted works were carried out to the quoted price.We have forwarded Techniblock's details to a number of people so far and will be happy to do so in the future.
David & Sallyann, Wantirna South (April 2013)
Just wanted to say thanks for the excellent customer service and especially to Damien for coming out and checking things regarding the toilet. On advice from Damien I dismantled the flow control valve, cleaned it and it's all good now. It had become blocked with bits of plastic probably from the original tank installation. Sorry to put him to all that trouble. Just a coincidence that it blocked up just after the underpinning.
James, Burwood East (March 2013)
First we would like to thank you all for great service it just made everything easier for us and we will be happy to spread the word around if anyone we know needs re-stumping.
Neelan & Angelique, Ferntree Gully (March 2013)
Gilbert, Fernando and Robert were excellent and we would certainly recommend Techniblock to any of our friends who need restumping work.
Matt & Anna, Williamstown (March 2013)
The work is done beautifully. Clean, tidy and professional! Please send my thanks to Rob, Martin, Daniel and other staff in your team. They did a great job! I would definitely recommend your services to my family and friends. Also thank you very much for your explanation to my queries, they are very helpful.
Jerry, Vermont (March 2013)
We want to pass on our thanks to Scott and Brent for all their great work they both put in a great professional job. The underpinning and wall went very well and it is a high quality finish. We would not hesitate to recommend Techniblock.
Chris, Balwyn (December 2012)
Just wanted to say thanks for the manner in which the whole underpinning process was handled at our osteopathic clinic. From the start all communication has been prompt, works have occurred on time with very pleasant and considerate staff performing the duties. Most importantly, being a commercial entity, the extra thought that was required for us to be able to continue to trade was very much appreciated. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone who needs help.
Peter, Heidelberg Osteopathic Clinic (September 2012)
Just a note to let you know how happy I was with the work of Techniblock and their underpinners. Anthony and his off- sider were very polite, clean and efficient and I felt quite comfortable with them working in the house. Rob really ran the project and scheduling well, keeping me fully informed of each step in the process and explaining the particular situation with my house. Thank you also for being so prompt in addressing my calls. I hope I don't need any more underpinning! If I do though, I will call Techniblock.
Tina, Northcote (September 2012)
We wish to thank you and your staff for the excellent job which turned out to be a little more involved than first thought, and we are very pleased with the result. We would also like to compliment Scott and Brent on their friendly and efficient manner and all at Techniblock for their support. We would be very pleased to recommend Techniblock to any prospective client.
Murray & Helen, Glen Waverley (September 2012)
I just wanted to write to say how very pleased we have been with the work that has been done on our home. And I particularly wanted to pass on my thanks and comments about the "boys" who worked on our place – everyone, Rob, Damien (I think, or is it Darren) and the boys – and including the bricklayers Graeme and John – have all been fantastic, so professional, considerate, reliable, great workers and most of all thoroughly lovely people. It was a real pleasure to have them here. So, please pass this on to management, and to the boys themselves - A huge thank you to them. We would be very happy to recommend them, and Techniblock, to any of your prospective clients. They are all great ambassadors of your business.
Joy, Eaglemont (August 2012)
We wish to thank you and your staff for the excellent job which turned out to be a little more involved than first thought, and we are very pleased with the result. We would also like to compliment Scott & Brent on their friendly and efficient manner and all at Techniblock for their support. We would be very pleased to recommend Techniblock to any prospective client.
Murray & Helen, Glen Waverley (August 2012)
Please pass on my thanks to your staff who attended my job. I found them extremely professional in the way they carried out our job. I was impressed with the way in which they undertook the work, the post clean up, and the interaction they had with the resident of the property while the works were being undertaken. I will be only too happy to recommend your company.
Colin, Elwood (May 2012)
It was a pleasure working with you, great to have someone actually do what they said they were going to do, and with such professionalism. I will definitely be recommending you if I hear or anyone needing some underpinning.
Adrian, Ferntree Gully (December 2011)
In the last 20 years Ingrid & I have been restoring this old house and in that time we have had to deal with many tradesmen and organisations (we have sacked a few too). I just wanted to say that we have both been impressed by your professionalism always keeping us in the loop and dealing with any issues as they arose. Rob and his team have also been very good easy to deal with, pleasant and competent.
Stephen, Balwyn (November 2011)
I wish to congratulate you and your team on a fantastic job that has been done at Kew. From the start it was nothing but professional. Your company commitment to safety should be commended. Rob was fantastic in ensuring that your staff where compliant. Scotts knowledge and skill was second to none. Please ensure that staff is told how happy both myself and the clients are with the work that was done. We look forward to working with Techniblock in the future.
Clancy Constructions, Kew (November 2011)
Several Months ago we discovered a large crack in the brickwork of our house. We approached two companies to fix it, but were let down. However, a friend recommended we try Techniblock. From the first meeting with Marty we felt comfortable and confident that he was interested as he explained exactly what needed to be done. We had the house underpinned and Marty kept in contact all throughout. He was very professional, prompt, with excellent customer service and we are very happy with the end result.
Australian Achiever Media Release
Techniblock was very prompt and on time to quote and, although they were not the cheapest, overall they were the best. The two tradesmen who did the underpinning work were very professional, friendly, obliging and very hard workers, who cleaned up extremely well. Their customer service was good and their work was faultless. Techniblock has even given us a ten year warranty on the job.
Australian Achiever Media Release
I found Techniblock on Google and read their customer comments and so I called them for a quote. They were very prompt in arriving to do the quote to restump half of our house and were very professional. I was very impressed with their customer service and their flexibility to get someone to come and do the work in and around my time constraints. I have been very impressed with the outcome.
Australian Achiever Media Release
We would like to say a huge thanks to you and the guys for all the hard work and reassurance you gave us through our first ever restumping. We had no idea of what to expect and how the process was going to work. We appreciated the advice and regular clear communication about what was going to happen, why and when. Huge thanks to Gilbert & Andy for their hard work, professional manner and studious attitude in completing our job. We will have no hesitation in recommending Techniblock to anyone looking to have any restumping done.
PD & DK, Blackburn
I just want to say what a great job Andy and Gilbert did on reblocking our house. They were prompt, professional friendly and very respectful of our house and family. I was very impressed after hearing horror stories regarding reblocking companies. Thank you for a job well done.
Mark & Simone, Huntingdale
Just a brief note to express my thanks for a job well done.
I was amazed at the result of the "jacking" process, the way the walls went back into position, the cracks closed up, and all the floor bounce was eliminated.
I must say that all of your people that worked on this job were a pleasure to deal with, they communicated very well, and did an outstanding job. You must be pleased to have such a great team.
Peter, Wantirna South
The reblocking was completed promptly and with very little fuss. I'm very pleased with the workers that performed the work.
K. Barrett, Mt. Waverley
We will have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone who requires any of the services you offer.
L and V Halloran, Mt Waverley
Thanks so much for a great job with absolutely no fuss.
T and S O’Neill, Surrey Hills
We are writing to thank you for the professional job done while stumping our property.
Andrew & Elvie, Nunawading
I just wanted to quickly thank you for all your assistance and patience during our recent contact with you for underpinning our house. Your friendly manner made it a pleasure to deal with you and being a novice in the field of underpinning, I was never afraid to ask you a silly question. You made it all that much easier. The guys who came to the site were the friendliest of all the trades people I have encountered, and Rob was very good at keeping me informed so I knew what was happening at every stage. Overall I will be very happy to recommend Techniblock to anyone I find that requires your services.
We would like to record our appreciation of the manner in which the whole operation has been conducted, from the time when Marty visited to provide a quotation, through to completion of the project. While we have no expertise to make any assessment of the technical aspects of the work, we can see plenty of evidence of restoration of correct levels and are relishing the ability to open and close our front door without any difficulty. We feel that we can now proceed with rendering our home with confidence that structural concerns are behind us.
Lynton & Helen, Vermont
I would just like to thank you for a job well done! Your advice and cooperation was fantastic. Your guys constantly worked safely and have left the area spotless.
Gerard, South Yarra
