Our reviews are five star.

I imagined that building during the pandemic would likely lead to unavoidable costs and time delays but we were shielded from any major impact owing to the experience and professionality of our Sentinel team.

We felt they understood what we wanted from the build and they worked hard to ensure we got it within our budget. Walking in on handover day we were overwhelmed at how our dreams have become a reality and we would absolutely choose to build with Sentinel again.

- Dawn Bannister

W e were so impressed with their thoroughness in discussing our plans, even offering some suggestions as to how we could make some savings. The firm quote we received was extremely thorough, highly detailed and with firm pricing for every aspect of the project.

Upon engaging Sentinel, along with the onsite team led by Trevor and Kevin, the project couldn’t have gone smoother (despite the first Covid lockdown intervening), and we were kept informed every step of the way.

- Andrew & Heather Bayliss

We are very grateful with how well the team helped us to get an excellent design, built well, to budget and finished in the agreed time frame, all while navigating lockdowns and supply chain challenges. Barney & his team operated with high integrity & commitment and delivered everything we asked for and more. Well done team!
