If you are considering renovating or building a new home we would highly recommend Luke Glazenburg and his team at LMG Building. We have completed several other renovations prior to this and can honestly say that the whole process was, by far, the most professional and stress-free to date. Ours was a substantial renovation of a Federation house that required sensitivity to the period and a great degree of adaptability as the job progressed (not least because we kept changing our mind and adding things). Luke literally refused to utter the word “problem” when he was working on our job; instead there were only “solutions.” As a result, it was always a pleasure working with Luke and his team.
Luke is very much a “hands on” builder/owner with an amazing builder’s mind that can look at a “problem” (sorry Luke) and find a solution very quickly, whilst remaining mindful of the client’s budget. He is an unashamed perfectionist and this ethos travels all the way down through his team, the end result being that the quality and craftsmanship of the job was top notch. It did lead to a few funny moments though – I’m not sure how often you would find the Managing Director of a company bent double with a brush and sweeping pan endeavouring to remove dust from the driveway and carport – but this is exactly how I found Luke several times even though, as I pointed out to him, we were living out and he would be returning the next morning to make a mess all over again. But it was very important to Luke that the impact on the street and neighbours was negligible.
Clearly Luke and his team take great pride in their work and the end result speaks for itself – our friends who saw our home before and after are wowed by the transformation. And even though we changed our initial plans quite substantially, Luke still brought the job in on time, which saved us a lot of money in rent. In every way LMG Building exceeded our expectations (Luke even restored a beautiful plaster feature in our home, asking his plasterers to do it while they were working on something else, then gifting it to us as a surprise!). We have no hesitation in recommending Luke and his team and would be happy to talk with anyone considering this building company.

I’d like to personally thank Luke Glazenburg and the LMG Building team for beautifully restoring our 1845 heritage-listed home in Millers Point. Our family has been happily living in the house for several years now, and have loved every minute of it.
With no prior heritage experience, my husband and I fell in love with a beautiful old dame with grand rooms, high ceilings, original timber staircase and floorboards, ornate fire places, sandstone block walls in the lower ground and even a pot belly stove.
It was only once we commenced construction works that we realised the building was riddled with white ants, rising damp, rotted floorboards and ceiling beams!
We relied heavily on Luke’s guidance and expert advice to help us every step of the way. His cost saving ideas including innovative construction techniques ensured the high quality restoration was delivered on time and on budget, despite the unforeseen circumstances which presented themselves.
Luke worked tirelessly through the house’s conservation management plan alongside our heritage architect and due to LMG’s fine efforts, our house was lovingly restored to its former glory with the high level of finishes we wanted.
Our family again appointed LMG Building to construct our recently completed plunge pool and entertaining area. Being the first residential pool built in the area, another custom built approach was required including the use of an archaeologist for the pool dig. Another amazing job done. We are very proud of our gorgeous white mosaic pool!
Luke and his team deliver high quality building work with a meticulous attention to detail. His leadership skills and warm personality ensures a harmonious environment onsite whilst managing the necessary trades and subcontractors.
I would not hesitate in recommending Luke and the LMG Building team to anyone looking for a true master builder.
