  • ‘John and his team have demonstrated extremely high standards, delivering a home beyond our expectations. They have successfully provided us with a creative and dynamic environment to live in taking into consideration the different facets of our lifestyle.’

  • ‘Working with Creative Building Services has been an absolute delight. From the very first discussion they were professional, efficient and well organised, way beyond my previous experiences with other builders. They steered my wife and I towards achieving exactly what we wanted in our renovations with their expert advice and practical experience. I am happy to say that these dealings continued with the tradespeople and contractors they brought in. We can’t speak highly enough of John, Sam and their team.’

    Peter and Robin, Curtin

    Bernard, O’Malley
  • ‘Over almost 20 years, Stewart Architecture have worked with John Katsanevakis and the Creative Building Services team across several prominent Canberra projects, from project inception through to completion. In our experience working with Creative Building Services, we have found John and his team to be proactive and open in his communication across the project lifecycle, ensuring any potential construction issues are identified and addressed efficiently. Creative Building Services’ performance throughout the projects we have worked on are evidenced by the quality of their finished developments.’

  • ‘It’s not often you meet someone with the skills and status of John combined with humility and a genuine desire to please. He’s outstanding. We love our new home and we enjoyed the adventure that resulted in our perfect residence.’

  • ‘Building our home with Creative Building Services was a wonderful experience. Thanks to the professionalism and experience of John Katsenavakis and his team, the project was completed on time and on budget. The team’s attention to detail, insight and above all else, care, were second to none. This was particularly apparent when offering design suggestions and improvements which have made a positive impact to both the aesthetics and practicality of our home. A major point of difference with Creative is that the team made us feel as though we were their only clients, that no request was unreasonable and that they were truly invested in the outcome. We have no hesitation in recommending John and the whole Creative team to anyone looking to build their dream home.’

    Maria, Yarralumla
  • ‘As a consultant within the building industry, I know three things that are very important when building.  Time, cost and quality.  We can say that John and his team at Creative Building Services excelled at each. It is highly evident that John and his team are high on customer service and satisfaction, in this day and age, very refreshing.’

    Mark, Chapman
  • ‘I cannot thank you all enough for all the hard work and dedication towards our dream project. You all delivered beyond our expectations. Your eye for detail and perfection is amazing.  My whole family entered the home today with goosebumps. Many, many thanks.’

    Amit, Yarralumla
  • We enlisted John at Creative Building Services to build our home following a recommendation and definitely do not regret this decision. Out of all the builders we had initial contact with, John was by far the most straight forward and transparent to deal with. This followed through the whole process and beyond. John and his team were always available to discuss anything throughout the process and built our home in as timely a manner as possible. We are thrilled with the result. Thank you to John, Sam, Rose and all the team at Creative.

    Ian and Zoe, Campbell
  • We choose John and the team at Creative Building Services to build our new home. At our first meeting, we related to his professional, amenable, and attentive manner and he identified with and embraced our ideas, giving us the confidence that he was the right person to build our dream home. We also visited some finished homes to see the quality of the finished workmanship. The building process became a relationship where trust and open communication were of prime consideration, and his staff and contracting teams were patient and a pleasure to work with. We were given genuine and generous estimates of the costs of the inclusions, which meant we did not have variations which were out of control. Nothing was too difficult for them and the quality of the build is first class and the final result is an absolute joy to live in. We can highly recommend John at Creative Building services as honest and passionate, who will strive to achieve the best result for you.

    Graeme and Lou, Wright
