Darren Hoolihan Engineers

We were first introduced to Tony Preston by our real estate agent who had been negotiating the sale of a development site for us. We were in a situation where we had organised the construction certificate for the subdivision but were unable at the time to carry through with the works required by council. After a few options were dismissed it was suggested by Tony to form a joint venture to allow for the completion of the project where we would both benefit from the profit made.

It was a leap of faith for us as it was the first joint venture we had undertaken. However, our early negotiations with Tony gave us confidence in his character and after seeing his resume, confidence in his experience.

Our solicitor was dubious of the mutual benefit of this joint venture and warned us that some people were “all talk”. We persisted and a contract outlining a win-win situation for both parties was formulated by each party’s solicitors.

Tony then took over the full control of the development ranging in scope from negotiating with council to payment and organising of contractors to perform the required works.

We found Tony to at all times honest, bard working and forthcoming in all regards. The project progressed smoothly and efficiently. Tony has shown himself to be a calm but strong character to whom his contractors are respectful and mindful of his requests. This can be seen in the quality of the work carried out.

We now regard Tony as a valuable business ally and have no hesitation in entering into further joint ventures with him. In this regard, we would recommend Tony to any prospective business partners with the knowledge that any dealings will be above board, efficient and in our case, profitable.

Mr Preston has just completed a block of home units on which I acted as consulting engineer to the client.
The value of the work at $1.57m was under budget and one month early.
I was impressed with the professional conduct and standard achieved on site and with Mr Prestons commitment to quality. It would be my pleasure to recommend his services to future projects.

Hugh Slater Architect

I have known Tony Preston for approx two years. I first met Tony when I was searching for a builder to work with me to achieve my goal to build superior quality homes on the Central Coast. Tony built my first home, has just completed building my second home and is about to start the third one. The finished result is exceptional. Not only do the homes look fantastic but also, I believe, is far above the standard project house. The quality of workmanship is very high and has been commented on by subcontractors, clients, salespeople and suppliers. Tony was dedicated to achieve the same end result that I was and I found working with him very rewarding and motivating.

Tony is a hardworking, honest and reliable person and his integrity and discretion could be relied upon at all times. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Tony for anything that he may wish to do.

Julian Richards

I have been associated with Mr Tony Preston for the past 18 months on a construction project at The Entrance on the Central coast of NSW.
The project had a construction value of approximately $6.2mil. It was a nine storey residential tower comprising 32 units and underground parking.
Tony handled the project in an excellent manner, the project was successful for all concerned and of a high standard of finish.
We would like to thank Tony for his input on that project and wish him every success in the future.

CSA Architects

I had the pleasure of working with Tony at the Star City Casino Project and again later at the Eastern Distributor Project.
Tony was always a keen team player, always interested in contributing to the team’s success being mindful of the bigger picture.
Tony was always respected by his peers, his sub-contractors, tradesmen and labouring personnel. He was a good leader who managed to see the best from those in his charge.
Tony is well organised, he is a good organiser, well disciplined, keeps good records and has a tidy approach to his paperwork.
Tony is very punctual, always making an early start to the day ensuring the field processes commence in a prompt and orderly fashion.
Tony is tuned into the requirements for safety and environmental matters, and has a balanced view in respect to the management of community issues.
I would have no hesitation to recommending Tony.

Kim Freeman

I found Tony to be driven by a strong desire to succeed both for himself and for the benefit of his wife and two children. He sets a high standard for himself and expects similar standards of those around him and from sub-contractors and suppliers alike. The determination and energy that he brings to a project will no doubt continue to find for him the advances that he has so far made in his career. He sets his sights high and has the will to achieve his goals.

Michael North

Tony has a personal need to provide the best possible result for his his client. He has an ability to adapt his thinking to any situation.
His abilities lo plan and organise his site have been proven together with his knowledge and management of the industrial aspects of day to day site activities.
Tony’s personal goals are obviously important to him and my knowledge of his background including his technical educational achievements lead me to believe he will achieve these goals. I would highly recommend Tony to any future client.
