"Dan Duffy has been a driving force behind the creation of Casuarina Steiner School's unique, architecturally designed beautiful buildings.
Dan has been involved for many years at the school, as both master builder and parent. His skill and flexibility, creative design and ideas, fill each building - but they are also imbued with heart, soul and laughter.
Dan has built a fine team around him, even his son and ex Casuarina student was working alongside him to create the latest classrooms for future generations.
I would recommend Dan Duffy for any project as his work ethic and building skills are exemplary"
- Tracey Puckeridge, Steiner Education Australia CEO
"Dan and his team have worked on a number of projects for us personally and for our business. This included managing a large renovation project on our house whilst we were overseas.
He redeveloped two restaurants on the ground floor of our office premises and turned them into a large open space suitable for our technology company.
Dan worked well with all of the trades he oversaw as well as the architects on the projects.
He understood our needs and offered suggestions which led to excellent solutions and outcomes.
I would have no hesitation in recommending his services, employing him again or speaking to a prospective client in person to elaborate on our experiences."
- Jacquie Houlden
"On Time, On Trend, On Budget.
Lucky me, getting to know Dan Duffy while we were both parents at Casuarina Steiner School in Coffs Harbour.
When it was time to renovate my 1960's beach cottage at Sapphire, there was no question who should do it.
With his eye for detail, flair and good old fashioned quality craftsmanship, Dan was the easy choice.
A load of recycled materials including a whole granite topped kitchen, double vanity, doors, windows and wonderful plantation shutters needed careful consideration.
Dan's ability to connect with clients' inner selves gives him an empathetic edge in his work which translates into just the right balance of practical solutions and small flights of fancy.
The work is on trend, without the cookie cutter approach which can be seen in new subdivisions around town.
Dan's team are polite, respectful and skilled with Country charm and courtesy being the order of the day on site.
I heartily recommend this builder to anyone with a desire for something special to call home."
