Northcote College has had a working relationship with Shakthi Construction for more than a decade. We have found them to be reliable, excellent communicators, and to do quality work on time.

We have been very happy with quality of the finished project and the way Shakthi Construction communicated with the school. Any minor issues were dealt with quickly and all involved were professional in their approach. Despite the difficulties associated with Covid 19 and the ongoing material supply issues, the project finished ahead of schedule and the finishing was to a high standard. Shakthi must be congratulated on their forward planning which minimized delays.

Glendowie College

The brief required the work, demolition and rebuild, to be completed in nine weeks, on budget and to a high level of workmanship. Shakthi Construction promised this would be done. The team delivered on their promises. Working long days and over weekends throughout the summer break the college is delighted with the result. This is attributed to excellent management, communication, sub-contractors and budgeting.

Homestead Community
House & Church

Having been in and using the wonderful education wing built for us by Shakhti Construction, we are looking forward to many years of creative classes. It was wonderful to work alongside Naresh and his team to get the project completed on time for our new school year.

It was by no means an easy project, but the guys just got stuck in and pushed particularly hard towards the end of the project to help us meet our timetable. We could not recommend this company highly enough, in both their attitude towards the project and their workmanship.

On behalf of the board of trustees and our members, we extend huge thanks to the entire team at Shakhti.

It is with pleasure that we write this reference for Shakthi Construction.

Shakthi Construction were chosen above other tendering companies for our Homestead project because their staff arrived on site with the plans and their tender documents were comprehensive and detailed – which indicated to us at this early stage that they were well organized.

We have been very pleased with our choice of company. This firm has acted honestly and responsibly throughout the construction process, and have kept us informed at all times.

The project was completed a month ahead of schedule and we absolutely love the finished building. We were impressed with their professionalism, work ethic, integrity and it was great to deal with a company that holds customer service in such high regard.

Shakti Construction were the contracted Registered Builders of our most recent building project, the transformation of Rooms 8-13 into Modern Learning Environments (MLE).

At all stages of the building process Shakti Construction demonstrated excellent health and safety practices and always maintained a high standard of professionalism and attention to detail. Shakti Construction never failed to clearly communicate with all parties at every stage of the project.

I would have no hesitation recommending Shakti Construction to other schools. If at any stage you would like to view Shakti’s workmanship please don’t hesitate to contact me and make a time to look through our MLE.

Kevin Choromanski, Principal
Pomaria Primary School

At all times the directors and staff have been honest, professional and easy to work with. They kept the school well informed and worked well with our project manager. They were very respectful of the fact they were working in a school setting and easily accommodated changes to their time frames as a result of various school events.

Alison Spence, Principal
Kohia Terrace School

In all my 29 years as a principal I have not encountered such a competent group of people from the building industry. Your time with us has been characterized by flexibility, a high level of understanding around the school context, and advanced personal people skills. To have the building competed before the expected planned time has been exceptionally welcome to our school community.
