About Keen As
Keen As Building has a team which is highly dedicated to customer satisfaction. Since our incorporation in 2009 we have done over 14,000 projects. After our small beginnings as a maintenance company, we quickly developed into a full renovation, building and Project Management company.
Keen As is able to service every situation – our clients include banks, insurance companies, real estate, Body Corporate, residential and commercial companies and private individuals. We cover all aspects of building from extensions and additions to renovations and full house builds. Keen As oversees projects from start to finish with a full team of experienced individuals. Our tradesmen are hand picked for their quality of workmanship and dedication to customer satisfaction at every stage.
Keen As can provide any trade service including experienced carpenters, painters, plasterers, tilers, electricians, landscapers, builders and Project Managers.
We are based in the central Gold Coast region and service the greater Gold Coast, Brisbane and Northern NSW regions.
Family Owned Business
Keen As is a local, family owned company who pride ourselves on our strong, interpersonal culture and high quality workmanship – we hand picked only the best people for our team. We rely heavily on word of mouth referrals, so not only do we strive to keep every customer happy but it is in our interest to do so.
Starting with our personalised detailed quotes by our experienced builders, we include all our expected charges up front and explain any unforeseen problems that may occur. We pride ourselves on giving you the peace of mind to know how much you are spending before the project begins. Then, we ensure that the staff and contractors you deal with everyday are able to provide the best service and workmanship on your home or business. Finally, we hand over the project in the condition we would expect if it was ours.
Keen As understands that building is often a very stressful experience for many reason: financial considerations, previous experiences, the impact it can have on your daily life and so many more. We strive to make every building experience as pleasant as it can be by going the extra mile. While every project carries risk of delays, mistakes or general difficulties Keen As always works through every single problem with you.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"I would like to thank Josh and his professional team on the fantastic job done on our major renovation. It has a pleasure to deal with the whole company all through the process and particularly the high level of communication that was shown to us. The assistance on design finalisation and being able to keep within a tight budget was greatly appreciated. The end result of the high levels of skills demonstrated by the trades involved and the individual touches have made this a great experience. I would recommend Josh and the team at Keen as Building to anyone that is looking for a reliable honest building team for their small addition or for a large scale remodel. Excellent Experience, great service, outstanding value for money." - Scott H. Jamboree Heights
"I can't thank the team from Keen As Building enough. We moved into a new home only to find we have structural problems with the timbers in the roof. No one really wanted to touch the job but Keen As were prompt in coming to the quote, so easy to talk with, and were confident from the get go they could sort the problem. The workmen were highly skilled and in no time had the roof back to how it should be. Even though ours was a relatively small job for them, they were kind enough to come and do it anyway. We highly recommend them...they're the real deal!!" - Carol P. Gold Coast
