“Our relationship with Bates Building was one of dealing with competent, professional and friendly staff and sub contractors who co-operated fully to make our building project a very pleasant experience. The entire team at Bates Building were always responsive to our needs and always thinking outside the square to ensure the project finished on time and within budget. We would have no hesitation in recommending Bates Building to anyone intending to carry out a building project.”

“Michael is an absolutely top notch builder who I highly recommend. If he quotes a job for you, don’t bother with anyone else.”



“Michael Bates and his team undertook an extensive renovation of the existing structures of my terrace house in Marrickville so that a new kitchen and laundry could be installed.

The renovation involved structural changes such as the installation of new windows and the repositioning of doors in load bearing walls, and major plumbing work replacing the aged sewerage and stormwater drains. The rooms were rebuilt from the ground up. The quality of the building work was exceptional, with a very close attention to detail and finishes. The Bates Building team worked very long hours to finish the build in just four months, they actively worked to offer the best solutions to any construction issues, and contributed creatively to the project, such as my new toilet in what was the old back door area.

Michael was able to take on board my ideas and then improve on them, always consulting with me. He paid close attention to the smallest details in order to ensure that the contemporary renovations maintained a continuity of design with the original features of my 1890’s terrace. The high standards of workmanship of the members of his team are evident in all aspects of the construction.Michael and his team also constructed a beautiful deck and winding wooden path to the double walled back fence and rubbish bin shield which they also built. Thanks to him my Inner West backyard became a small oasis to relax in.

In addition Bates Building also replaced the old floorboards in the living and dining rooms of my terrace house. This took some care so as not to damage my fireplaces and skirting boards.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Michael Bates and his team. His personal integrity, building experience and knowledge ensured the highest standards for my renovation which has attracted nothing but compliments for the quality of the workmanship. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone thinking of renovating or new builds.”

“Bates Building carried out the building works on our new kitchen, including removing a section of wall, installing ducting for the hob extractor fan and making good the plaster and coving.  They were really clear and helpful, and helped out with co-ordination of the other tradies like plumbing, electricians and tiling.  They provided really good dust sheeting and floor covering to prevent our house filling with dust, and it worked pretty well.  They cleaned up efficiently after the job, and charged the price we’d agreed.  No hidden extras or surprises!  The work quality was excellent and our kitchen now looks fantastic.  We were really happy with the Bates Building service and would thoroughly recommend them.”

“I have worked with Enda of Bates Building on two of my bridal boutique fit- outs and am thrilled to share my feedback. Enda is extremely professional and highly skilled in his field and I couldn’t recommend his company more. What I most appreciated about working with Enda is his attention to detail and quality. I also want to make note that he fit out my bridal boutiques in a very short time frame, most nights ‪until 12am. Hard worker, genuine professional.”
