Words of praise

from happy clients

If you’re looking to build, go to Element! 

They are a local Canberra builder, they looked after us, talked to us, they’re not going to take you for a ride, they will build you a house that’s a home and make you feel like a person.

I never ever thought I would move from my house of 43 years.

Element has been fantastic, I couldn’t say a bad word. Dennis is lovely and always answered any of my questions.

Janet Gallagher Watson

It's going to be exciting and interesting to live in my own house that I've planned and helped design.

It’s been very quick and the handover was much sooner than originally planned. The system for variations and the processes to follow have been really good, it’s all been very user-friendly, very time-saving. It’s been quite a good experience actually, no surprises. The team has been so awesome, very patient, nice and they really guided me as well.
