I have worked with Axle Projects since 2008 on 4 projects, including residential and office refurbishments. I have found John to be trustworthy and dependable in all of our dealings – rare qualities in the construction industry. Building projects invariably have their upsets and delays – in all instances in my dealings with John Roussouw and his company, he provided good communication, resolved issues as they arose in a professional manner and followed through on his promises. I have referred Axle Projects to friends and they too have experienced positive results.
In 2011 we purchased our new home, a 5-bed house in Atholl, Sandton. We embarked on an ambitious and substantial 6 month refurbishment and remodelling encompassing a new kitchen, new bathrooms, electricals, underfloor heating, floor tiling, additional bespoke cabinetry in all rooms, four sets of stacker doors to an integral patio, bespoke wine room and external entertainment patios.
We selected Axle Projects, led by John Roussouw to undertake our project, working closely with subcontractors and overseen by well-known top end interior designers Head Interiors.
Axle Projects impressed us from beginning to end of the project. John has a great team of trusted and skilled craftsmen working for him who exemplify their trades. The proof is in the fact that after 7 years, the house only now needs a modicum of normal wear and tear maintenance.
Different factors contributed to our project being a pleasant and enjoyable experience, exceeding our expectations:
• Quality and professionalism of the building team
• The choice of quality subcontractors
• Excellent and seamless integration with all project participants
• Adherence to standards, safety and cleanliness of the building site throughout the project
• John’s hands-on management of the project
• Good ongoing communication with us, the clients
• Collaborative and creative problem solving
• Superior quality of the workmanship
Although not selecting the cheapest tenderer for our project, the process and results spoke for themselves in delivering a superb outcome. The Axle Projects experience and product is one we are glad to share with others who are looking for quality and peace of mind for their own project.
We appointed Axle Projects to do a major renovation at our property in Hurlingham Manor in 2015. The whole exercise took about 6 months which we had planned for and had moved out of the property. We met with John and his team on site on a regular basis and any changes or problems were discussed and agreed to. John kept us updated on the financial position on a regular basis and any additional costs were agreed to before the costs were undertaken. The whole process ended up to be quite a happy experience as John had come up with a couple of excellent ideas on how to improve what our architect had drawn. I had heard of the nightmares that people have had with their builders but that was not our experience with Axle Projects. If you are thinking of building or improving your property I can recommend John and his team.
More than often these types of projects end up being a disaster and I’m very pleased that we managed to keep it together albeit very turbulent at times. I’m very satisfied with the final results and general quality of build and I believe that you will be very successful if you continue to focus on the fine details. Your honest approach and amicable manner make it a pleasure to work with you and I wish you well in your future endeavours. Sounds like I’m saying goodbye but quite the contrary. I hope that we can continue to work together and hope to refer more business to you so, if you ever need a referral please do not hesitate to contact me and ‘your’ school remains at your disposal for viewing and showcasing whenever you like. You are welcome any time.
