” Grant Williams and his company ”Grant Williams Building Design and Drafting” has been contracting and associated with Accord Homes for the past 4 years or so.
In that time Grant has covered a wide range of design and drafting activities for us – from simple and straight forward additions and minor extensions to existing homes right through to full on design work and drafting for larger upmarket homes and duplex units for, in some cases, very fastidious and demanding clients. In these later cases we have adopted a ”joint venture” approach with Grant where he works in conjunction with us at Accord Homes in satisfying the clients´ needs and demands. It is in this role that Grants´ character and beautiful nature really shines through. He has a very precise yet caring way of dealing with our clients and this is something we will always be grateful to him for.
Grants´ administrative abilities are excellent, with good attention to the small details which are so important in this role. He has a good understanding of developing recording & accounting systems and the discipline to maintain those systems on a regular basis.
Grant is a man of excellent character and integrity. He is always very conscious of conducting his business and personal affairs in as honest and straight forward a way as possible. He has a great understanding of human nature and people in general and has a tremendous capacity for handling trying situations with sensitivity and style.
As well as all that I have mentioned above, it is Grants´ artistic flair and design sense which sets him apart from many others in his field. He is that rare mix of a person that designs creatively, yet with a great respect and attention to common sense building principle and economic consciousness.
We have been extremely happy with Grants´ work and professional ethics and feel we are extremely fortunate to have him and his company as an integral part of our team. ”
Peter Flaskas, Director, Accord Homes (QLD) PTY LTD
” We have worked with Grant on a number of various projects and have found him to be easy to communicate and deal with, he is able to develop designs that meet the brief of requirements and exceed expectations. Grant has creative ideas that are buildable along with excellent construction documentation and presentation skills. We have no hesitation in highly recommending his services to others. ”
Ian Wayth, Director, Laguna Constructions
” This project was our first time in a new build and it has been a thoroughly wonderful experience. Grant came with us on our first site meeting where my wife and I talked about the vague concepts of what we might like by way of design. He has managed to combine his careful attentive skills with his clever design experience and came up with the initial plans from which we have made only minor cosmetic changes to right up to building completion. I think we have been very fortunate to find an architect to have been so considerate of our thoughts and come up with a very delightful design. We would have no hesitation in recommending Grant and hope to work with him again in the future.”
Jenny and Graeme Hart, Bardon
” Working with Grant on our plans was more collaborative than we ever could have hoped. He wasn´t at all precious about his original design and was more than happy to incorporate changes and feedback. He was also kind enough not to point out every time we came full circle and realised he´d been right all along! The builder and various trades people were very impressed with the detail of the plans and as a result much less was left to chance. We are so happy with the results, a perfectly weighted modern addition to our traditional fibro beach shack.”
Julian and Caroline Porter, Maroochydore
” Having worked with Grant now over a number of years we have always been impressed with his creative thinking & vision for each individual project. With his designs complimenting the wonderful lifestyle we have here on the Sunshine Coast. Grant is a very professional, emerging building designer with the ability to develop a home that encompasses the clients design brief.
We look forward to working with grant over many more years to come & have no hesitation in highly recommending him to prospective clients.”
