Met all our requirements


We were apprehensive about building an investment property in Bowen as we live on the other side of the country. We spent 2 years researching many building companies, designs, and inclusions. Our research revealed that many building companies had come and gone in the Bowen area hence we felt that it was important to select a local builder whom been in the region for many years. Merrick Construction came highly recommended by local property managers and they had a reputation of building quality homes and attending to post construction maintenance promptly.

We were looking for a complete turn-key solution on a limited budget. Our research revealed the type of properties and amenities that were demanded by tenants and the designs offered by other builders in our price range were small with a limited list of inclusions. Glenn & Cindy’s designs were not only larger with more efficient designs they made sure that inclusions met all our requirements without significantly increasing the construction price.

We were surprised how smooth the pre-start & construction phases went. Glenn & Cindy kept us informed throughout the process and always worked with us to find the best possible solution when issues arose.

We would like to thank Glenn, Cindy, and the team for removing the stress of building remotely and making it a pleasant experience.

We would highly recommend them to anyone building a new house particularly if they live outside of Queensland.

Workmanship second to none


We would like to thank you both for making our journey building our home so easy. From the first day Glenn looked at our plans to the day we moved in it was a pleasure. Glenns’ workmanship is second to none and he helped us with ideas as he built the house. Changing our verandah ceiling to timber slats instead of gyprock made the area so much better. Glenn was prepared to try different things to enhance different areas within the house. Lowering the ceiling above the kitchen really defines the kitchen area and it looks great. Glenns’ attention to detail stands out in our home and has raised many comments from our friends. Glenn suggested we put in Glass Power Points and stone feature above carport, these have really enhanced the exterior and interior appeal. Timber look aluminium louvres along verandah are sensational and low maintenance which suits our lifestyle. Both Glenn and Cindy keep up with the latest trends and offer advice but also listen to their clients wishes. We could not be happier to have chosen Glenn, Cindy and crew to build our home.

I can and will recommend Glenn and Cindys work to anyone.


Sincere appreciation


We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the entire Merrick Constructions team for our beautiful new home. We truly love our home and we could not be happier. It is a dream come true!

We chose Merrick Constructions to build our new home based on their reputation of attention to detail and were not disappointed. Friends had previously built with Glenn and his team and we watched the house transition from a vacant block to a truly beautiful and welcoming home. We wanted Glenn and his team to be part of our journey and knew from our very first meeting that he had the passion and drive to deliver the home we wanted.

Thanks to everyone for such a fantastic home of an extremely high quality finish. We are thrilled with the completed project. It has taken awhile to get there but our motto was that we wanted it done right and were prepared to wait to ensure the final product achieved the WOW factor we were after. It was never any problem to make changes here and there as we went along to ensure the house was perfect for us. The house certainly evolved to our liking as time went on.

Thank you so much for our truly magnificent new home!

Delvene & Graeme
