Paul Softa

We recently completed a residential construction in Port Douglas with both our business's based out of Cairns. Regardless of the distance and logistics (gated and secured property), ACA were available within 72 hours notice of each stages' completion and were there every time, on time for their inspections. Follow up reports, certifications and documentation were in our hands within 48 hours. Excellent service and will continue to use and recommend ACA. Thank you.

I was very happy with ACA they were a pleasure to deal with from the very start. I can't believe that old fashioned customer service still exists today but it does!! they were all brilliant. From the receptionists on the phone to the greeting at the establishment to the Certifier... that understood my needs and delivered A+ as far a I am concerned. So happy to give this business a good review they deserve it. Keep up the good work guys you are doing a great job.

I have dealt with all sorts of people in 32 years of business, from buyers sellers, solicitors, accountants, trade people etc. and I can honestly say that Harald Weber of All Construction Approvals has provided the most efficient service I have experienced, Harald is truly unbelievable, my emails get a response always within minutes, sometimes seconds. Harald is very approachable, easy to talk to and extremely knowledgeable in his field.
You might find someone as good as Harald, but you definitely wont find better. (ten out of ten)
Highly recommendable.
A big thanks to my Draftsman Rob Wolf of Innisfail for referring Harald to me.
