I engaged Zugai Strudwick on the recommendation of a friend and a builder. Mel and the team were upfront about costs and at all times the communication was clear and prompt. Mel's calm demeanour and no nonsense approach suited me. She happily made changes and gave suggestions for improvement. She possesses excellent listening skills and helped with suggesting possible builders. I would not hesitate to recommend Zugai Strudwick Architects. The subsequent build has been without stress and her vision for the renovation has come to life.
