trust is critical when engaging your architect

Proteus Architects obtains most of our work via our current and previous Clients and through word of mouth recommendations.

Below is a selection of what a few of our clients have said about us.

Mr Darryl Lloyd & Dr PH Phongsavan:

"Mark proved a good listener. He carefully considered our brief and designed a home that ticked all of our 'must have' boxes. Perhaps more importantly though, Mark added unexpected features that have now become the things we most enjoy. Mark's eye for detail meant most things had already been well considered and incorporated, adapted or dismissed before we raised them. As well as a practical and functional design, (Proteus Architects) brought an interior design perspective that made most of the available space.

Mark led us through the council approvals and tender stages to find a suitable builder. It was great that Mark did all that leg work. I don't know how we could have done that and held full time jobs.

Mark is a meticulous contract manager. Several constructed items differed from our specification. Mark did not accept the builder's position that 'close enough is good enough'. He insisted on work being redone properly. Thankfully, Mark's firm but practical approach based on thorough industry knowledge, prevailed and resulted in us getting the home we sought. As contract manager Mark's attention to detail also protected our financial interests.

Mark Gerstl is highly professional and a pleasure to work with. We are very pleased that we engaged (Proteus Architects) for our job and have no hesitation in recommending them for architectural design, interior design and contract and project management roles."

Mr & Mrs Martin Waterhouse:

"Just a note to let you know how very pleased we are with your design and work you have done for us...We do not think it is possible to have done a better design. It exceeded even our wildest expectations. We like it so much that we want you to sign it when the building is finished i.e. we would like your name on a plaque as the architect in an appropriate spot. An artist should sign his work"

Mr Grahame Lavings:

"We were thoroughly impressed with Mark's professionalism and his communication skills. Throughout the process, Mark was extremely well organised and often proposed alternative design solutions to save costs. As such, his ability to think outside the box proved efficient in the design process and cost effective in its construction. His thoroughness in the documentation stage was exemplary.

Mark always proved reliable and dependable. I would not hesitate in recommending the services of Mark Gerstl to any size and complexity of building projects."

Mr Sharad Loomba:

"Your design and good taste is to be admired. I am already looking forward to our next project."

Mr Andy Freeman OAM:

"Mark proved extremely reliable in his dealings. He has shown enormous responsibility and efficiency in his position and delivered on his commitments. In all, he is most courteous and respectful in his conduct, and is a conscientious, loyal and hardworking individual."

Mr Peter O'Neill:

"I want to particularly commend Mark Gerstl for his professionalism in ensuring the compliance of the building in all its intricacies and complexities, and I would happily recommend his services for any complex construction project in the future."

Mr Phil Bartels:

"Mark Gerstl in particular demonstrated an ability to understand and deal with the sometimes conflicting project objectives, to elicit required information from a myriad of stakeholders and to closely manage the designers and subcontractors. I would happily recommend Mark Gerstl's services for any construction project in the future."
