Australian Carpentry have recently completed a complex set of hardwood timber stairs and toughened glass balustrade with a round timber handrails for one of our Interior Fit out projects at Level 6 & 7 545 George St.
The team Chad deployed to complete this project was professional, extremely skilled and very patient as we had them working in a confined area behind safety hoardings. This project had many more challenges with it, working in a commercial office building without dedicated loading docs or good lifts, all materials had to be moved between floors during out of hours times of the building.
Australian Carpentry Contractors completed the project to the highest of standards, on time and budget with no fuss. The end result is amazing and is a feature my client is proud of and has really defined there working environment.
I would recommend Australian Carpentry Contractors for any building and carpentry works and am happy to provide a phone reference.

I write in reference to the long lasting working relationship I have had with Chad Schomberg, and his company Australian Carpentry (AC). I have known Chad personally for Approximately 8 years, dating back prior to the existence of PCM. The personal and business relation is based on being serious when it needs to be but also being able to have a good laugh as the understanding of why we do what we do is based on creating an atmosphere that is conducive to bring out the best in ourselves and the people around us. We are very fortunate to have a number of good subcontractors spread across many trades, and in respect to the timber framing, general and detailed carpentry, Chad and his team are able to provide us with a complete package. From quoting through to completing the works on site, and even simply providing initial estimates to assist early budgets for clients, nothing ever seems to be too much trouble. The quality of work is of a very high standard which is founded on Chads own abilities but also his ability to maintain a motivated team of carpenters around him. PCM have many projects running at a time and Chad has the ability to make sure our projects get the attention they deserve and does so without making a fuss about the complexities of his role and deliverable's.
An aspect of PCM’s engagement policy is making sure that any person who represents PCM is more than capable of presenting him/herself well in front of our clients. This aspect is never a problem with Chad and the feedback from our clients has always been very positive.
PCM also require that all employees and Subcontractors manage the OH&S, and quality aspects of any situation with the utmost of care. I expect a certain level of undertaking from each and every person on site. Chad has, apart from completing all tasks in a timely and professional manner, approached the safety side of the process without needing to be asked twice. Chad and his team are more than willing to lend a hand when needed and will always make sure that at the end of each day, or as required, their work zone and machinery are all kept neat, tidy and in good working order.
One thing that will stand out is that Chad and his team have the ability to be where you need them, when you need. This has also impressed our clients time and time again. Although there is great reward in being able to deliver beautiful homes, there is also a great deal of work that happens behind the scenes. Working with Chad and AC allows us a smooth transition across one of the most critical and visual components of the process.
We currently have AC involved in a number of projects and they are also assisting us in the tender process on several more. We look forward to many more successful projects with them as we grown along with AC.
Please don’t hesitate to call at any stage to discuss both Chad and AC’s commitment to customer service and ongoing relationship management.
Director PCM Constructions
"The work completed was of a high standard and was well supervised and planned. The invoices provided were accurate, detailed and honest. The tradesmen were on time and turned up when they said they would, and worked well. They responded to my requests for some urgent work on several occasions and arranged for specialist tradesmen to complete work. In addition Chad assisted, in cost effective manner, with design input on some complex issues to do with statutory compliance.
I have since nominated AC for substantial work at our Broadway Site, as well as for work on my sister's house. In the building business referral is the highest compliment you can give."
"Aim Partnership Pty Ltd has been involved with Chad Schomberg and his company, Australian Carpentry (AC), for over 2 years. In this time AC has provided ongoing construction and carpentry services to AIM on numerous projects.
In all dealings with AC, AIM has found Chad and his employees to be hardworking and highly skilled in delivering quality construction and carpentry services.
AC has always provided all the necessary documentation including quotations, invoices, information requests, proof of insurances, time sheets etc in a timely, thorough manner as required and requested.

Director AIM Partnership
"I have dealt with Australian Carpentry Contractors and Chad Schomberg over the past five years, in which time he and his team have undertaken a number of projects including full replacement of the front deck of our house, designing and building a double carport and renovating a three level staircase.
All work has been carried out in a thoroughly professional manner and we have been delighted with the results in every case.
Chad’s approach to business is one of openness and honesty and doing the right thing for his clients. His transparent approach is reflected right from the start where his quotes are prepared on an “open book” basis, with all labour and material costs itemised right down to the profit margin for AC.
Throughout all our projects Chad has kept me fully informed of any variances or issues as they have arisen and has worked cooperatively with me to resolve any problems to mutual satisfaction.
I would have no hesitation in using AC again for suitable carpentry work and would be pleased to recommend Chad to anyone considering the same."
"Chad Schomberg and Australian Carpentry Contractors renovated our house during 2010. Chad always acted with integrity and the up most good faith. The quotes he provided were extremely transparent and detailed and along with the account he was able to provide detailed time sheets and receipts which could be easily reconciled to the original quote.
Towards the end of the work Chad was allowed us to pay by installments in order to complete additional work. He was incredibly flexible in regard to the amount we paid and when we made the payments.

"The key reasons I chose Australian Carpentry Contractors was due to recommendations and references I received. I was impressed with Mr Schomberg's professionalism and how he went about securing the building contract. I have found Mr Schomberg at all times to be professional, honest, open, upfront and good communicator. At no time throughout my building renovations did I experience any controversy or issues with any tradesmen. Work was completely on time and within the agreed budget. I was overseas for 1 month during the building contract and I was completely comfortable leaving Mr Schomberg in charge.
All building work has been completed in the utmost professional manner. I would and have already recommended Australian Carpentry Contractors to friends who are looking for a Builder and would definitely utilize their services again"
" I would like to provide a reference in support of both AC and Chad, whom I have known for the last 2 years as a result of building work conducted at my house in Manly and another property owned by my wife.
AC conducted a major renovation at mine house. I would like to make the following observations:
- the work was of a very high standard;
- in our opinion the work was completed at an appropriate cost and, after careful consideration of all invoices, no errors or mistakes were present; and
- Chad's communication to us as clients was timely, clear and always polite;
I have no hesitation in recommending AC for building and carpentry projects.
I believe Chad is a very personable, hard working and honest person and am very comfortable in expressing my opinion that he is of good fame and character.
