Martin Harris, the owner of the North Brisbane branch of Outside Concepts
My franchise area in East Brisbane is all suburbs north of the Brisbane River including west Brisbane and the suburbs north of Waterworks Road. I cover a large area including Ascot, Newmarket, Clayfield, Ashgrove, Stafford, Kedron, Nundah, Ferny Grove, Samford, Chermside, Aspley, Sandgate extending right up to Kallangur.
My name is Martin Harris and I am the owner of the North Brisbane branch of Outside Concepts which has been a family-owned and operated business since 2000.
During this time I have completed many quality structures some of which are on view in my photo gallery below. As the owner of the business, I personally organise and supervise the entire project – the design, plans, council approval, insurances, building certification, delivery of quality materials, supervising top-quality construction, organising any other trades and a thorough site clean up.
I am a family man with a wife and three young children I adore, so I fully understand the challenges of raising a family and keeping to a set budget. As your building project is a significant investment, it is important to consider the style of your home so that any additions will add value to your property. My work ethic has always been to approach each job as if I was building the structure for my own home. Being a perfectionist, right from the start and through the entire project I ask myself “Would I be 100% happy with this product?”
One of the benefits of choosing Outside Concepts is that we are a nationwide company with vast experience of over 20 years. This gives security and peace of mind with the added assurance of our 10-year structural warranty. As franchisees, we receive ongoing training and familiarisation with the latest materials and technical information and because of our group’s purchasing power we are able to obtain building materials at great rates ensuring that our pricing is very competitive.
Martin, we just wanted to say thanks for a great job. We are thrilled with our new carport and patio. The workmanship is great and we are grateful for your work and care for us.
Martin, I am very pleased with the result – it does indeed look great. The locals who pass up and down our street to go to the dog park with their dogs, also think it looks great! There’s been a fair bit of interest as the job progressed. Thanks to you and your team for a very professional managed job, and a quality result. I’ve appreciated the regular communication at critical points in the process, and about progress in general. We’re looking forward to enjoying our new deck environment for many years to come.
We would like to thank you for your courteous and helpful assistance during the course of the works. We would also like to thank the builder for the high level of workmanship and professionalism shown. As with most people looking to undertake substantial home improvement works, we had some trepidation regarding the ease with which the works would be undertaken.
Some firms who quoted for these works appeared to confirm our fears by not listening to our requests, or suggesting potential increases in cost even before the works had started. You quickly dispelled our fears by incorporating our requests and being upfront with costs for alternative ways of achieving what we wanted.
We would wholeheartedly recommend you to others embarking on similar works. It is difficult to predict what the quality of the completed job will be when comparing quotes. You live up to your claims of high standard workmanship for a reasonable cost.
