What was major renovation project was made much easier working with Danny and his team. Complexities around structural work and changes that needed to be made along the way were handled professionally in a supportive way.
Complements must be given to his team leader Ian, who was quick to address any issues or concerns we had and was present for most of the construction work. A friendly team, sensitive to our needs and responsive to any issues we had along the way.
We are extremely happy with the end result. It speaks volumes for the quality workmanship of the DTA team. Attention to detail and no compromising with a quick shortcut was the key to getting a quality job done.
We have no hesitation to recommend DTA to anyone wanting to build or renovate their home.

“We feel extremely lucky to have been put in contact with Daniel to build our first house in Pottsville. He was truly excellent to communicate with right from the initial planning stages through to all the finer details at the end of the build. As we were living in Brisbane for the majority of the build, we really appreciated how he kept us up to date throughout, he even sent us pictures of those exciting building milestones which was really thoughtful.

A steep site meant we needed to make some changes early on to the original plans to meet our budget requirements and Daniel had the know-how and problem solving ability to always come up with great alternative solutions. When variations arose he tackled them with a smile and we really appreciated his transparency with costing. He and his team strive to give you a top finish and we are particularly happy with how he put together our vision for the external design elements of the house. We can highly recommend Daniel to anyone wanting to build and whilst enjoying the adventure too!”

“We are extremely happy with the finished job! In order to bring our apartment kitchen from 1982 to 2017 we needed to make a structural change, Danny & Nicole understood what we were trying to do and were both helpful and patient, Danny’s team is very organised and responsible and when we needed something done a certain way that’s the way it got done!”

We have been only too pleased to highlight the quality of the work, the professional way in which the process was attended to, the cleanliness of the worksite, the diligent attention to detail, and the expert advice and guidance in us achieving a result that fulfilled all our expectations. Your personnel were very aware that they were working inside our home while we were still in residence and at all times afforded us the utmost considerations. In summary it was a project that was not easy and required the highest of professional and technical skills to complete, something which you achieved at the highest order.’

‘It is a pleasure to recommend Danny from DTA Building. After waiting several months to have a project done on the apartments and to be let down due to hold ups with other builders, finally I found Danny Abbott. Danny’s service and approach was highly professional. He scheduled everything and didn’t miss a beat. The job was completed on time and the workmanship is impeccable. Thank you so much. I have no hesitation in recommending DTA Building.’

Madonna, Byron Pacific Apartments, Byron Bay NSW

‘We were very fortunate that Daniel and his family decided to move to northern NSW and that our architect suggested we approach him about our house renovation. During the quotation stage he provided options to meet our requirements and our final plans were implemented in a timely and professional way. When variations were needed Daniel always provided costed options that were consistent with our design and recommended his preferred  way.

Daniel’s attention to detail is exemplary and he does not cut corners or take the easy road. He is a modern builder aware of the latest products and is respectful of good design. We found him to be fair at all times and he has the ability to solve problems when they arise. The quality of his work is of a very high standard and we would not hesitate to recommend him for projects of any complexity or size.’

‘Restoring and Extending a 100 year old return veanda stone villa was going to be a long and potentially stressful journey . The overall built up area would end up over 720m2. We were fortunate enough to have Daniel Abbott as our Builder. With his expertise and exquisite craftsmanship, we were able to create a beautiful home.

We were impressed by his creativity, attention to detail and his amazing carpentry skills. Daniel has a strong understanding of the building process and materials. He has an uncanny ability to deal with the unexpected hurdles and unforeseen challenges, while adhering to the time schedule and budget.

Neighbours who have seen the house before renovation comment on the stunning home it is today. What we appreciated most about working with Daniel is his honesty, integrity and dedication to complete the job meticulously. We would highly recommend him for building any quality home or renovation.’

Dr Sandy Patel, St Peters


‘I have no hesitation recommending Daniel to anyone wanting Building work done. DTA building undertook an extensive renovation and extension for us. Throughout the build the team were reliable, punctual and communicated well. When the inevitable variations to the plans arose Danny provided sensible advice and accommodated any changes without drama. Danny is clearly a very skilled builder and has managed to surround himself with a happy and committed team with the same value of quality craftsmanship.’

Dr Andrew Beinssen, Walkerville


‘I have been associated with Daniel Abbott for professionally as a builder for 10 years. His understanding of all fascets of building is very high which is very important to our company as we specialise in additions and alterations to older inner city homes where patient and positive problem solving is essential to achieve the correct outcome. Daniels communication with his clients and other contractors is excellent. We found him very easy to work with, and have no hesitation recommending him.’

Nick Szabo, Szabo Constructions Pty Ltd


‘DTA Building completed a re-roofing and guttering project within a specific timeframe and budget. Daniel Abbott was organised, efficient and an excellent communicator. He sent me photos fo the job in progress and photos of the completed job when I was away. He performed additional tasks like painting which was not specified in the quote but needed to be done once the old roof and additional structures were removed.

I highly recommend Daniel for building work as he communicated clearly and also completed work to a high standard. He was available at a moments notice to troubleshoot a fitting around a skylight. The roofing and guttering were a extremely complex job on a house with an intricate oxagon roof structure. The job was completed at a time of unusual and very difficult weather conditions, including high winds and Daniel took the utmost care at all times. I have the highest praise for DTA Building and Daniel Abbott.’

Dr Susan Hill, Magill


‘DTA Building renovated our timber frame home into a weatherboard beauty. Danny and his team were punctual, reliable and very professional. Even when we changed our minds or plans as the building was underway, Danny accommodated our ideas and gave us great advice which helped deliver our vison. Our recycled jarrah floorboards look fantastic and the double glazed windows are exactly what we wanted. We would highly recommend DTA Building to anyone wanting quality craftsmanship from their builder for home renovations.’

Mark Dohring, Blackwood


‘Daniel Abbott is an exceptionally talented tradesman. His passion for Building and his skills in carpentry and overal attention to detail is impeccable. Initially we had him and his team build our open plan extension, his work was faultless, the timeframe in which it was completed very reasonable and his communication throughout the process wasn’t only professional but very friendly. We have since had DTA Building back to do several smaller projects around our home, including our entrance decking which we are thrilled with. We have no hesitation recommending DTA Building to anyone!’

Chris & Anna Fittock, Hove


‘A huge thank you to Danny and the team at DTA Building. What I thought was going to be an extremely long process was made quick and simple. Daniel helped me decide what would be best for my 20s Bungalow renovation and always kept me up to date with what was happening. He gave me options to chose from when obstacles arose and was conscious of my budget and needs. A huge thanks to Danny and his team.’
