Valdal Projects is an innovative and award-winning construction company based in Toowoomba, specialising in renovations and extensions in both the residential and commercial sectors, as well as dabbling in new home builds. From concept-to-completion, the hard-working and motivated team offers a fresh approach to building, and pride themselves on developing friendly relationships with satisfied clients.
“We’re honest and upfront, and we don’t believe in taking shortcuts,” says Stuart Valdal, Director. “We know what it takes to achieve fine quality and longevity.”
Stuart Valdal, the builder and director of Valdal Projects, has been a part of the local building industry since 2007, when he began his carpentry apprenticeship. After completing his builders’ license in 2013, he immediately began his own company with himself and a first-year apprentice. They started small, but soon won a commercial office job in Toowoomba. From there, Valdal Projects has gone from strength to strength, purely through word of mouth.
Today, the company employs five full-time subcontracted carpenters, five full-time apprentices, one school based apprentice, and one full-time and one-part time administrative staff. Focusing primarily on renovating and extending houses and small commercial buildings. Valdal Projects also does new homes, which are always custom designed to meet the client’s specific needs, likes, and lifestyle.
According to Stuart, Valdal Projects stands out in that niche market due to our honesty and transparency.
“At the beginning of every project, we give clients a detailed description of what we’ll be providing and how much it will cost. That way everybody is on the same page and there are no surprises down the track.”
Another point of difference for Valdal Projects is the personal attention Stuart offers every single client and project.
“I’m on site every day, and I keep clients up-to-date,” he says. “We put a lot of effort into our relationship with our clients. And if they have little changes along the way, we can accommodate them.”
As a result of this personal approach, Valdal Projects has built a strong reputation in Toowoomba for their quality and reliability. Most of the company’s clients now reach out to Stuart right from the beginning of the process, allowing him to participate in the idea stage, and often times even come up with a rough draft at no cost.
“A lot of times, people will get a plan done by an architect or engineer, and when they bring it to a builder the quote is over their budget,” Stuart explains. “Then they have to pay money to get it re-engineered and re-designed to something more suitable. With us, clients know exactly what they need to pay from the start.”
