Darren and Connie of DR Moore Constructions completed the Spyglass home in CQ in March 2020

I have found them very committed and helpful people during planning and construction. They both have an eye for detail and always had the quality of the final product at the forefront of our discussions.

I have found Darren and Connie honest, fair and considerate in any changes that unfolded during construction. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a premium home built.

River Pool House

Extending our home, including the addition of an inground pool, with DR Moore Constructions was a delight. From the early stages, Darren’s passion to craft a premium product was obvious in everything from engineering to communication, from choice of materials to his personal supervision of works.

Darren, Connie and their team understand that details make a project exceptional, and they invested significant time and effort to understand our vision, provide value for money in design and construction, all the way through to ensuring the timely delivery of an outstanding, modern addition to complement our existing home.

We found them to be fair and honest, with a drive towards the best outcome possible that was not only commendable, but which also made what can be a stressful experience easy and enjoyable. Our design was complex and unusual in parts and we found Darren to be competent and confident in addressing this challenge.

In our experience with this and other projects, we believe DR Moore Constructions is, by far, Central Queensland’s leading construction firm, and would highly recommend them to anyone who values quality craftsmanship.

We are extremely grateful that Darren, Connie and the team chose to be part of our project.

I want to take this opportunity to tell you what a satisfying experience it has been working with Darren and the team from DR Moore Construction.

The first project we worked together on was Headricks Lane. This project is a highly detailed bar, restaurant and event centre located in a State Heritage listed building, on East Street, Rockhampton. Being a difficult build, I needed a builder I could trust, was highly skilled and was up for a challenge. Having been our first experience working together, I found my customary initial cautiousness quickly turning to confidence. From the commencement of construction Darren and the team demonstrated an unusual level of cooperation and initiative in solving problems. The final outcome was a triumph resulting in many awards for both builder and architect.

I have since worked with Darren and the team on a Diner at Barney Point in Gladstone and the results were just the same.

I highly recommend Darren as a builder and I look forward to our next project.

Yours sincerely,
Scott Petherick - Principal Architect

We found the Team at DR Moore Constructions professional and knowledgeable, they walked us through every step of the building process giving us regular updates and feedback. They provided valuable input into the project from colour schemes to layout we couldn’t fault. The finished product is excellent and is great value for money. “When we next build we’ll be using DR Moore Constructions”

We are extremely happy with our new home. I would recommend anyone intending to build to talk to Darren.

Darren paid attention to detail and took as much pride in the final appearance of our home as we did. All of our criteria were met and Darren made sure we were 100 per cent happy with all decisions and variations at every stage of the build.

Communication with Darren and his team was easy. Any concerns were taken on board promptly and dealt with efficiently and professionally. Nothing was too much trouble.

So a big thank you to Darren, Kathleen and Connie.

We had not been in Rockhampton long and had been recommended Darren to assist in our renovation. Darren worked with us to bring our vision to a reality. We found working with D.R. Moore Constructions a truly collaborative process. Darren is very easy to get along with and nothing was ever a problem, always available to talk to us and answer any questions we had. Darren’s workmanship is exemplary and his attention to detail is second to none. Our family is very happy with our outdoor living space and pool area and we have no hesitation in recommending Darren and D.R. Moore Constructions Pty Ltd for any of your building needs.

Facilities Management Maintenance Superintendent, Anglo Coal Pty Limited

DR Moore Constructions has been working for Capcoal in Middlemount on major contracts upgrading the existing houses.

Darren commenced work on the upgrades in October 2007 and completed the final contract in March 2009. Darren has a good work ethic and organisational skills to drive his workers and subcontractors to complete each project on time and to a high standard of workmanship.

Darren completed almost 50 houses for Capcoal and all were of a similar high standard of workmanship.

The projects that Darren undertook for Capcoal were in the $4m to $5m price bracket, due to the limited availability of vacant houses to work on at any one time.

All the houses that Darren did for Capcoal were completed within budget and without variations to the contract (except client driven variations) and to a standard that was considerably higher than any other building contractor undertaking similar work.

Darren always presented his sites, staff and himself in a professional manner and had a high regard for safety on all his sites.

I would have no hesitation in recommending DR Moore Constructions to undertake any construction projects in Central Queensland, and I look forward to working with Darren again in the future.

Ian Mill

Chief Executive Office, Mercy Health and Aged Care

I wanted to formally acknowledge the exceptional job you and your team did on the renovation to McAuley House, one of our Residential Aged Care Facilities.

It was always going to be a rather challenging task, working around residents and staff. Can I say that your team showed complete respect and patience to our residents recognising that you were in effect working in their home.

The building structure and age added further complexity. Your attention to detail and where possible your efforts to recycle existing materials to match the heritage look of the building demonstrates a level of professionalism that we very much appreciate.

Darren your efforts to achieve our desired outcome with minimal disruption in an occupied care facility are commendable. The fact that the finished product is of the highest possible standard, on time and on budget is the reason why I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to other businesses.
