I worked with BIC Construction recently on a major renovation of a difficult terrace in Paddington. I found Brad and his team very positive and enjoyable to work with. BIC are pro-active and highly professional, as well as open and honest in their dealings with clients and other steak-holders.
They are also open to exploring ideas and solutions to tricky challenges on site, with attention to detail. I can highly recommend BIC as builders for any renovation or new house construction, for a high quality outcome and enjoyable process!

Brad and the BIC team were recommended by our architect Fin – This was our first renovation of a Paddington terrace so unsure what surprises could be in store. Prior to the project kick off Brad was very patient, explaining the process and options.
Brad, Scott, Jessie and the whole BIC team were knowledgeable, reliable, and client focussed, and provided options at key decision points. We regularly met to review build progress, as the plan took shape. We were aiming to maintain the period features, while modernising the structure. The renovation was a transformation, we had a specific vision for the aesthetic which was delivered as part of a collaborative process, underpinned with quality construction and finishes.
The BIC team were great to work with, communicated with us regularly, and we really enjoyed collaborating with them through the process.
We were able to move back in before winter, and couldn’t be happier with the result. We have no hesitation endorsing Brad and the BIC team, and hope to work again in the future!

BIC Construction renovated and extended our house. Throughout the process from tender to final defects, Brad and the team were professional and always available. They were reliable and focussed on a quality build with excellent detailing and construction knowledge. The build finished on time and the program was adhered to with site foreman Jesse on site everyday. Our experience was excellent and would highly recommend. Thank you.

Brad and his team at BIC Constructions recently completed one of our more challenging residential projects in Bellevue Hill. It involved deep piering and excavations to create, in part, two fully underground floors on a difficult sloping site. In spite of its complexity, the project was done within the nominated time and budget. Brad’s team and his subcontractors produced high quality workmanship and finishes throughout. We would not hesitate to use him again and to recommend him to others.

My criteria of a good builder for my new build / renovation in Bellevue Hill was someone who would not only deliver an exceptional result with excellent attention to details but just as importantly , someone who has kept to the agreed cost of the contract as well as completion time of the job. I’m very pleased to say that now with the work completed , Brad and his team at BIC construction have met all those criteria ; honesty in their pricing , trustworthy and professional in their work . I added quite a few variations to my agreed project including an entire renovation of the rear swimming pool and its surround and Brad still managed to finish the work very much close to the completion time . One of my neighbours commented to me that the building team has been very considerate and respectful, not blocking their driveways or causing chaos in the area . My private independent building certifier twice commented to me that he thought Brad was a very good builder and he said he’s seen a lot of building works . I would therefore highly recommend BIC construction for anyone seeking to renovate or build .

Brad and the team at BIC Constructions were true professionals and great to work with. They were happy to work with us through design changes and new ideas as the project progressed and took a real can do approach to any problem solving. We finished on time and were delighted with the finished product – our home for hopefully the next 10 years. Thanks guys, job well done

I am an architect and BIC did a new house with us in Chatswood. It was fantastic to work with BIC on the project and they made things very smooth for me as the architect. BIC are good with both the construction techniques and details and the paperwork side as well. BIC also communicated really well to me and the home owner. I highly recommend BIC to any architect or property owner.
Danny Broe – Danny Broe Architecture Architect
Bic Construction (Brad Chapman) is our builder for our knockdown and rebuild project in Chatswood. The house is designed by Danny Broe Architect and Brad is appointed the builder via a competitive tender. The project is completed on time and on budget. The project has progressed smoothly and steadily throughout the build, a testament to the detailed architectural design and specifications by Danny, good team work between the builder and the architect, and excellent project management by the builder. For a project of this size, it is no surprise that there are a few cost variations. In the scheme of things the variations are relatively small and well managed.
I find Brad is acting honestly, trustworthy and helpful. Brad is a good communicator and has a strong attention to details. In our many site meetings, Brad demonstrates a strong grasp of the technical details and the project progress, and make many suggestions on what and where to make improvements. Brad has a good team of tradesman who are skilled in their trade. We find some of the works to be of craft quality. We love the brick work, the internal joinery and the frieze work. The roof look amazing thanks to the Drone. We have received excellent comments from our neighbours on our foreman (Jesse) and his team, who turn up early each morning, working hard rain hail or shine. Jesse and his team is a professional bunch who take pride in their work.
I like to thank Brad and his team for the great work. Our family is loving our house and find pleasure and joy living in a building which is well designed, well built and meet our everyday needs.

BIC Construction won the tender to construct the new pod and alteration for the house. From the start of the project Brad was helpful and pleasant to work with. He is solutions oriented and has a natural I stinct for good detailing. As Borg the architect and owner these traits are imperative to achieve not only a good build but a sleek architectural result.
Program was a slight concern at times however that is endemic across the industry in Sydney at the moment but despite subcontractors letting him down he reached practical completion close to the original contract date. His own work was always timely. BIC is constructive and positive and a delight to work with and I will certainly invite them to tender on future projects with my firm.

I dealt with Brad and his team during the recent renovation of my house and couldn’t fault him or his team. They were lovely to deal with, reassuring at all stages of the reno and did a spectacular job. His attention to detail and modern touches made for a beautiful result and I am more than happy to recommend him and his team for any of your renovation requirements.

“I found Brad and his company BIC through Houzz and contacted him to see if he would be interested in providing a quote for our home renovation. Brad was fantastic from the outset, very professional, extremely informative and asked all the right questions. He was very generous with his time on the phone and when inspecting our

“We engaged the services of BIC Construction to redevelop our pool deck, a task that was difficult due to the size and layout of our property and the natural sandstone. From the beginning, we found Brad to be courteous, prompt and very professional in his approach. He listened to our design ideas and was able to further add, suggest and offer advice on design and material options. His excellent work, coupled with a high quality product, has left us with an entertainment area that has added much more value to our house than the cost of the deck itself. We would have no hesitation in recommending BIC Construction and would definitely engage their services again.”

“We found Brad to be an excellent choice for our recent renovation in busy Elizabeth Bay. He removed the stress and anxiety with his efficient and professional manner. He managed to deliver a major renovation in a relatively narrow time frame without any major issues. I would highly recommend his company BIC Construction.”
Maryann Phillips Elizabeth Bay
“I was trying to organise a builder to do quite a particular bathroom renovation given the narrow space, and for it to happen while I was overseas. After getting very differing quotes, my electrician recommended BIC Construction, who I proceeded with. BIC’s quote wasn’t the cheapest at first glance but was the most comprehensive and transparent. Brad and his team transformed my bathroom into one of the best I, or any of my mates have seen. Great job!”
