“I worked with Darren, Winston and the team on a new custom home construction in Eastwood as the project Architect & Interior Designer. They were extremely professional, organised and committed to doing their very best. They exceeded all my expectations and whenever there were problems they were there to work out the best possible solution for the design and for the clients, putting themselves last and doing everything they could to achieve the best outcome. I could not recommend them more to any clients looking at renovating or building a new home or investment property.”
What sets us apart from our competitors is our commitment to our clients. We work with clients with the aim of developing a long-standing relationship with them. Once you have worked with us on a project, we are confident that you will be impressed with the quality and professionalism of our work.
Hear From Our Clients
“Magico Constructions recently completed a project in Elizabeth Bay that was designed by atarchitecture.com.au with outstanding results. Despite some rather complex site constraints and other political challenges, Magico persisted to the end. They certainly have a winning combination with Darren’s tenacious attention to the paperwork & project administration and Winston’s nowledge & experience on site. They are both willing do whatever it takes to get the job done, even if it means getting in themselves and getting grubby in amongst 150 years’ worth of dust & grime!
Magico’s attention to detail and their ability to see the big picture holds them in good stead amongst their peers. Their cooperative nature and hassle-free approach to problem solving is a welcome relief in the construction industry.
I have no hesitation in recommending Winston & Darren and indeed we are already in discussions for the next couple of projects.”
“I have worked with Darren and Winston on a number of tenders recently and have found them to be thorough and detailed. They communicate well, understand arrangements and are prompt to answer queries.
The site inspections reveal and excellent construction knowledge, compliance and regulations. This is only achieved after many years of experience. What attracts me to Darren and Winston is they have a desire to achieve a quality construction outcome and are proud of their past projects.”
“After the successful completion of our first project with Magico Constructions, we are already planning our next project together and are happy to work with them again in the future.
The success of a construction project is largely dependent on the personality and business culture of all the members of the construction team. Whilst the drawings, specification and other documents describe what has to be built, assembling the right team is crucial to how it can be built. With Magico, there is a very positive, proactive, accurate and organised operation that keeps the client fully informed on all aspects of the project at all times. There is the confidence that the project is being managed properly.
We always look for companies where the directors are engaged and leading the operations. They will have a stronger desire for a successful project for all parties. This connection is evident in the Magico team having great pride in their work”
“For KAS Architects, we believe the success of a project depends largely on how well the contractor understands the design intentions and how closely they can align with the visions of the designer and developer. Through a perfect blend of youthful energy and proven experience, Magico has consistently shown their willingness to listen and collaborate to realise our design objectives.
The design process has been efficient and rewarding. Our studio discussions have always been productive as both Darren and Winston would often provide options to improve on the design whilst being sensitive to other project parameters, i.e cost, approval, timeframe. They also perceive projects in their entirety from concept design to post-construction.
As is the case with one of our commercial fit-outs where Magico has proposed a very practical and cost-effective way to reinstate the tenancy back to its original state at the end of the lease. This may not be apparent to many contractors so we really appreciate their understanding of the project’s life cycle beyond completion and the attention to planning and details.”
“I have worked with Winston Zhou in the delivery of a high quality and significant residential project for an exacting client.
Winston is a builder who seeks to actively engage with the consultant team. He does not work remotely, he is a problem solver and wants to drive solutions that respects the designer’s intent in order not to compromise on the outcome.
Winston brought to the project a wealth of experience across all aspects of the construction phase. Like all great builders he was always thinking three or four steps ahead. The end result was never out of his mind.
I found Winston to be most passionate about his work and about achieving great outcomes for his Clients. He is a person of integrity, who has a strong work ethic and great personality that makes working with him a delight.”
As the work on our two new units is effectively finished, and we will be departing for Canada shortly, I wanted to take the occasion to thank you on behalf of the owners of Kincoppal and the former members of the strata committee executive who were closely involved with the project from the early days.
As a general comment, I would have to say that you were always a pleasure to work with. Your openness, honesty and good humour were much appreciated by all.
Your online construction management system was extremely helpful in monitoring progress without having to interrupt your work onsite, or the architect. This was particularly helpful to me during my absences in Canada in both 2020 and 2021 which turned out to be much longer than anticipated due to covid related travel problems.
I must say that your strengths, and the benefits of working with you, really came to the fore when all the consequences of the pandemic set in. You were very fair and accommodating in coming to an agreement on sharing the costs of the initial shutdown.
Your commitment to the job in the face of material shortages and delays, as well as shortages of workers and subcontractors was very impressive. You were always finding a way of getting things done rather than making excuses.
In the end, when delays couldn’t be avoided and the demands and behaviour of the client group not always reasonable, you maintained your standards in providing an excellent product. This in spite of serious cost and schedule pressures you were facing. No contractor I have ever worked with would have remained as committed as you did.”
