Testimonials

At Sustainable, we take the time to understand your vision for a sustainable, individualised home and pride ourselves in our working relationship with our clients.

 “Brett and his team have been fantastic to deal with. The house achieves a level of environmental sustainability we had only dreamed about when we started this project two years ago. Brett’s experience in designing zones for large families, and our shared passion for minimal environmental impact while maximising the passive elements of the Queensland climate has resulted in the home of our dreams.”  Paul – Recipe House @ Samsonvale  

It is a great experience to work with Sustainable. Every time someone from Sustainable comes on site it is like a friend arrives. I feel as if I am part of the family and always encouraged to be part of the project, so that I understand the methodology and reasons of the design and delivery. I also appreciate the philosophy of Sustainable that involves listening to my needs, wishes and coordinates whatever is necessary.”   Carolyn – Retrofit client, Karana Downs

 “We had a great experience working with Sustainable and could not be any happier with the results. Their aesthetic ideas were very creative and appealing, and their practical know-how and problem solving ability were invaluable when it came to the particular challenges with our site, such as access and water flow. It was obvious to me that the whole team, from Brett at the top, and all the way through, were very enthusiastic about what they were doing and saw it as much more than just a ‘job’.”   Mark – Landscape Project, Westend

“For decades we’d enjoyed our ‘secret spot’ – getting there by 4WD and camping under the stars. As chance would have it, we discovered a freehold block of land that had come on the market. We wasted no time and soon it was ours. Over many years after that we thought about the future, and securing an architect and builder to serve our needs in a remote location. We met with many good architects. Some were ‘out there’ and some hadn’t worked with solar or on-site sewage treatment, but ‘would like to get into it’.

The trail eventually led us to Brett McKenzie and the Sustainable team. We were impressed by their organisation and ability to competently design, build and manage the project throughout. They analysed our needs, considered the site and its best assets; then used their skills and knowledge to efficiently create a functional home which remains a tribute to their endeavours. We are happy we followed that trail. “ Greg and Kinta, Recipe House – Moreton Island

 “Sustainable designed and constructed our new Recipe Home at Boonah. Brett and his team at Sustainable have been very professional to deal with during the design and construction phase. They have provided the total solution for our property using an overall masterplan. The plan has been staged to provide the infrastructure, landscape and land management for the integrated design of our house. Their practical skills and knowledge in the building industry, which has come from years of designing and constructing all forms of the built environment from houses to landscapes, is evident. The key for us was that the dwelling did not separate us from the rural landscape and they have achieved this without compromising which is a fantastic living environment for our family.”   Stuart, Custom House – Boonah
