THE P J COOK DIFFERENCE

Build with P J Cook Building and you can expect unrivalled quality, attention to detail and a seamless building journey into the next exciting chapter of your life. Our systematic procedures and meticulous attention to detail set us apart from the rest.

P J Cook Building is not a solo operation. Peter has invested time over the years to carefully select a team of employees and sub-contractors that share his quality-driven high standards.  They will build your future while delivering construction excellence and providing excellent customer service throughout.

This is what we are known for and most passionate about. Our core focus is on quality, not quantity. Our commitment to uncompromising quality ensures nothing is left to chance and everything is completed to a superior standard.

Peter and his construction team are dedicated to ensuring the finished product is the best it can be, and Peter will not give up until it is – his eye for detail is second to none!

We will never trade quality for money. You can have confidence that partnering with P J Cook Building in this journey is the right choice.

On every project, P J Cook Building encourages our clients to ask questions and expect answers. We believe in honest, direct and open communication with you from the very beginning.

Once construction commences on site, you will have consistent access to Peter and his construction team. You will receive clear and transparent communication along the way. Our standard of communication allows for the development of relationships that generally last well after the project is completed.

Our leading-edge cloud-based software keeps you informed and updated throughout the build. This allows for transparency and input from all parties involved and provides live up-to-date information on cost, variations, selections and daily logs, including photographs and comments on what is happening on site.

P J Cook Building is not about churning through projects. We operate limited site starts so that every project we build is completed to the highest standard. This allows us to forecast the commencement and completion date of your project. You can rest assured that you have our full attention.

Your best guarantee is to deal with a reputable local family company that has served its customers with integrity and distinction for many years. If we do not finish on time, we pay you a standard weekly fee until we do! P J Cook Building leads the industry in exceptional construction timelines and guarantee offers.

Our extensive range of standard designs suit all budgets and lifestyle requirements. Designs are flexible, with lots of choices within the standard range as well as optional upgrades so you can achieve what you truly want.

Our experienced design and pre-construction team will work tirelessly with you to meet your requirements and your expectations to the best of our ability. We also ease some of the stresses associated with building, handling the entire approval phase and working closely with council, private certifiers and other consultants, until your project is approved.

P J Cook Building takes pride in providing upfront turnkey pricing so there are no hidden fees or surprises after signing our building contract. This commitment to transparency ensures you know what you can expect from your build, from the project start to the moment we hand you the keys.

Our commitment is to build your new home or investment on time and within budget.

We only do new residential work so you can be confident that we know our speciality inside and out. We never avoid a difficult site, with experience building in bushfire prone areas, sloping and rock-based sites.

With strong relationships with local suppliers, we offer a quality set of standard inclusions that sets a benchmark beyond the modest offering of other building companies. We are constantly researching the latest materials, technologies and finishes to ensure our designs keep up with trends and meet expectations.

We have created long-term working relationships with trades and suppliers. These relationships provide reassurance that we have control over the cost and quality of your home or investment property.

We understand that buying a home or building your property portfolio are significant financial investments, so we have established a network of brokers who can help and guide you through the process of submitting your loan application.

While most home builders are focused on quantity objectives, P J Cook Building strives to hand over your home or investment in immaculate condition.

Many home building companies employ full time maintenance divisions to fix faults that arise after handover. We believe that employing full time maintenance divisions instils a bad culture in sub-contractors, as they are likely to leave all the little things and not pay sufficient attention to detail, knowing that faults will be picked up by the maintenance team within the maintenance period. At times, this can extend out even further than the standard 13-week maintenance period. This approach is inconvenient for the homeowner or tenant. That’s why P J Cook Building is focused on getting it right the first time.

We are not claiming that we are perfect, but our focus is getting your new home or investment in tip top shape prior to handover. If, however, we miss anything, we are only ever a phone call or email away.

In addition to our commitment above, your new home or investment comes with a standard three-month maintenance guarantee. This guarantee covers you for any defects that may occur as your home or investment property settles.

You will also enjoy additional peace of mind with a 6-year structural warranty backed by a builder with a solid track record who will continue to be in the industry long enough to support it.

We understand that everyone is busy but also understand the importance of involving you in the building experience. We can arrange one of our consultants to visit you on site at a time that is convenient for you between 7.00am – 5.00pm Monday through to Friday and Saturday between 8.00am – 1.00pm.

We are focused on ensuring your building experience is as simple and enjoyable as possible, involving you as much as possible and making our time available when it is convenient for you.

We believe word-of-mouth is the best form of advertising. We understand that when our customers’ experience exceeds expectations, we are generally awarded business from family and friends.

Our customer opinions mean a lot to us. A referral is the ultimate compliment that our business can receive. This also means that we can invest less time and money in advertising and more in developing and improving the building experience for our customers.

Unlike many major home builders, P J Cook Building is proudly 100% Australian owned. Peter Cook established P J Cook Building in 2011 with no aspirations to be the biggest builder, but he aimed to offer uncompromising quality with a personal and hands-on approach. He established high standards for employees and sub-contractors while overseeing a transparent and innovative construction process. Since 2011, Peter has developed a reputation with customers, developers, partners and suppliers for building luxurious, modern, functional homes and investment properties that go beyond excellence in quality and design. Honesty, integrity, reliability and customer service form the foundation of our success.

We could keep going with reasons why you should partner with P J Cook Building, but we think you get the picture. We genuinely care about our customers’ building experience and we value and respect the important role that we play.
