We had a complicated three block subdivision to deal with which required one house to be raised and moved to allow for two car parks and new stairs to be installed, as well as a fencing re-alignment between the two existing properties. These changes were mandatory to obtain council approval for a small lot development at the rear. We chose Jux Developments after meeting John and feeling extremely comfortable with his knowledge and building expertise. Not only did John take on the new build he was instrumental in doing the work required on the current properties for which we were very grateful, and kept things on track. He was able to use some new ideas which were acceptable to the council’s rigid character listing in the area. After moving over 700 cubic metres of soil and the slabs laid it became noticeable that the job was progressing on time. John was in touch or on site nearly every day to make sure everything was going to plan but Brett and his team were “ all over it” John came up with some great options that we would not have considered and was quick to make these changes and other ideas we had, at short notice. Nothing was a problem, the team work was consistent, the sub-contractors professional and we would have been lost without Carrie’s exceptional input with the interior design. At the end of the day our house became a home, neighbours commented positively, unknown passer’s by called in for details of the builder and where some of the products used were sourced. We gladly passed on John’s details After handover we had a most enjoyable afternoon with everyone involved with the build as we wanted them to see the home they had built as a finished product and to thank them for their work individually It was one of the most exciting projects that we had attempted and definitely not the nightmare that we had heard stories about. Thank you to everyone associated with Jux Developments for making this a memorable building experience for us.
When we first contacted John about building our new home, from that first conversation we felt that we’d finally found a builder that we could work with. On meeting John we were sure that it was the right decision. John’s forthright, open and honest approach was welcoming, and we established a great working relationship from the get-go. The team at JUX is incredibly professional, thorough and patient, and as new homebuilders this was crucial for us. Building a new home is a major decision and can be highly stressful if you don’t have the right team working with you. John & Carrie were so helpful, answering our many questions and providing valuable feedback and advice on decisions that assisted us in keeping the house build within scope of our budget. No build goes exactly to plan and ours was no different, however the issues were minor and were acknowledged and addressed by the team. Our house was completed and handed over within the initial timeframe provided. The build quality is excellent and if we had to do it all over again, we would jump at the chance to work with the JUX team again. We LOVE our new home!

John Bicanic and his team at Jux exceeded all our expectations and went above and beyond when it came to building our family home. From start to finish, John, Carrie, Brett and Leanne guided our decisions and took control of the project. Being time poor with work and kids meant little leftover time to spend managing a build, and that’s where Jux could be relied upon. We always felt valued as clients and often wondered whether John was actually building any other houses at the time because he always made us feel like we were his only clients. We always got VIP treatment and felt like top priority. The lines of communication were always open, variations were discussed and approved, and suggestions were always forthcoming. The end result was better than we imagined with lots of extra touches added that we hadn’t even thought of. We would not hesitate recommending Jux to anyone who wants to build a home and to laugh along the way. John is a professional, an innovator, a perfectionist, and a respectable, patient gentleman who will always be welcome in the home he built.
“We wanted to build an architect designed home on a sloping small block with the living area upstairs to maximise the views. On top of this we wanted to put our motorhome underneath. We searched the net to find builders who were not afraid of something different. Having made online enquiries to a number of builders we were immediately impressed with the efficiency and tone of the reply from Carrie the office manager/ colour consultant. Our first meeting with John and Carrie convinced us that we wanted Jux to build our house. This was not an easy decision to make at the time but it was certainly the best decision we made. Ann Maree and I are both retired teachers so we appreciate the extraordinary quality of Jux’s organizational process. All the tradesmen were excellent, Brett the foreman was very approachable and the job was finished two months inside the contract time, on budget and to a quality I did not really expect. John is a hands on builder and his suggestions were all taken on board as practical and aesthetic. We can highly recommend John and his Jux team.”
“Hi John and the Jux team, We just want to thank you and the team for the construction of our home in Toowong. We knew it would be a hard build due to the block, but nothing was too challenging for you. We spoke to a number of building companies but we felt from the first meeting that Jux were our builders. This was proved during the build when any obstacle was managed professionally by John. We were kept informed and were able to visit the site at all times. We have built before and found it quite harrowing but this time, with Jux, it was a dream. We can’t thank you enough and have passed on your details to friends and acquaintances looking for a builder who takes pride in his product, cares for his clients and gets the job done on time and budget.”
We wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the wonderful job you have done on our extension. The great design and quality workmanship exceeded our expectations and has been admired by our friends, relatives and neighbours. We were particularly impressed as to how the contemporary design blends in so well with the existing colonial house. You were a pleasure to deal with, always making time to deal with our many queries and most importantly finishing the project on time and within budget. Your professionalism and personal approach made the experience an enjoyable one.
Whilst we spoke to a range of builders about construction of our new home, it was clear from our first meeting with John and his team that they were right for us. John and his team went to considerable effort to find out exactly what we were looking for, and using their expertise worked with us the whole way to ensure the outcome met our expectations. Even before we committed to Jux, John spent considerable time listening to what we wanted and developing specifications along those lines, helping us understand what was possible and offering ideas on how we could get what we wanted whilst still staying within budget. Jux were an absolute delight to deal with from the first meeting, through handover and beyond. John was always accessible and available to listen to any issues or concerns and resolve these quickly. Having built before I was anticipating a few hurdles along the way, however, we can honestly say the whole journey with Jux was pain free and an absolute pleasure. Even my new neighbours have commented on the professionalism of John and his team, and that there was never an issue or concern during the building process. John, you have built us a home, not just a house, where I’m certain we’ll be happy for many, many years to come. Thank you.
We can’t speak highly enough about the fantastic job John and his team did sliding over, raising, building underneath and completely renovating our Queenslander. The process was hassle-free from start to finish, the work was of a very high standard, the service and support were great, John was well-priced, and we couldn’t be happier with the final outcome. We have already referred John to 3 other friends and will happily recommend Jux Developments to anyone looking for a quality builder who genuinely cares about his clients and prides himself on his workmanship, flexibility and service.
