In 2010, we, like many people, had approached a number of architects to try to find more space in our house for our growing family. The problem was that over the years previous owners had tried to do the same thing badly. We had bedroom leading onto bedrooms And a kitchen that was suitable for a one bed roomed cottage! We asked Dave for help. Not only did he manage to re-design the layout, he was able to provide a design which provided us with a beautiful open planned farmhouse kitchen, three bedrooms for our children and a large en-suite master bedroom and walk in closet. Dave then successfully project managed the project, ensuring that all our additional requests were met. He was extremely professional throughout and provided a critical service. I recommend him without hesitation.

Renovation of 2 bedroom flat in the heart of Sandton, Johannesburg. In 2012/13, DTC Creations took on the complete renovation of my 25 year old 2 bedroom flat. Dave was very hands on from planning, project managing, contractor selection and management, and daily over-sight of the project over a 4 month period. His advice on the complete layout of a gutted kitchen and 2 bathrooms, cupboard designs in the bedrooms, and replacement of doors was well informed given his years of experience. In addition, Dave restored oak antique furniture for me. Dave accompanied me and advised on choice of tiles, design of vanity and sanitary ware, kitchen re-configuration and appliance selction, and solved problems such as damp proofing a previously damaged verandah and bathroom shower. He met the timeline and budget requirements according to project management standards, and I would recommend Dave and DTC Creations for flat renovations.

Rebuild of house in Randpark Ridge during 2012 - complete the build of a second floor and other expansion of house on lower level. After receiving quotes from two different builders to undertake planned renovations on our house I was put into contact with Dave who was able to design the changes that I required. He then suggested that he could project manage the entire rebuild using contractors that he knew. He quoted on the work and planned to complete the rebuild in three months. During the rebuild I had total faith in Dave managing the project and was able to contact him at any time if I had queries. This also meant that I only visited the house once a week to check on progress. The project was completed in four months after a dispute between the builder and the structural engineer delayed the project. Apart from this the rebuild went very well as Dave was able to listen to all our needs and requirements. He was also very good when it came to the interior decorating and assisted us in choosing tiles, paint colours, and all other fittings that we required. He was also able to assist in building new cupboards for our kitchen. Once complete the project was within 10% variation of the budgeted cost. If you require any renovations or building undertaken I would recommend Dave above anybody to manage and undertake your building requirements.

We asked Dave to help us plan the layout of our new bedroom, including the en-suite bathroom and dressing area. He was extremely creative in his designs and really helped us to visualise the end result. I would highly recommend Dave if you ever need kitchen, bathroom or bedroom renovations.
