What our customers say
Our firm contracted Urban Revolutions to design and construct our Bondi Junction offices. The job was accomplished within budget and on time which is remarkable given the short lead time and numerous amendments we threw at them. We have since recommended Urban Revolutions to a number of clients and in all cases the feedback has been very positive.- Philip Opit
“If you are looking for a professional business that thinks and delivers ‘outside the box’ ideas and executes them to perfection, look no further than Urban Revolutions. They go that extra mile and are personable and innovative. Good businesses are built on referrals and Urban Revolutions is a stand out example and leader in their field.”- Bev Barnfather
“We contracted Russell Garnett to complete substantial renovation and repair works to our home at Middle Dural. We had built with another construction company in the past and the difference between them was worlds apart. We found Russell to be very helpful, meticulous in the details of the project and eager to find the right solution for every query. We had many pre-construction meetings initiated by Russell to ensure that every detail was addressed and taken care of and that we were happy with the solutions suggested. The work teams were of superior standing, punctual and mindful of our privacy as well, considering that we were living on the property at the time of the construction works. The end product was top class, completed on budget, as agreed, and in a timely manner.”- Kiki Studdy
“My dealings with Russell and the Urban Revolutions team have always been very good. Their designs are innovative, their workmanship is of high quality, they provide a detailed and comprehensive service and they always treat me with respect, honesty and integrity. Urban Revolutions has now completed works on my family home, pool, landscaping and my corporate headquarters. My friends and family are amazed at how beautiful our home is, we have Russell and his team to thank for this.
I am happy to refer the Urban Revolutions team to friends and family as well as use them again on any future projects that I have.”- Mark Morrissey

“Urban Revolutions has provided us with a detailed, methodical and comprehensive approach to building our new home. Their planning and execution is simply flawless. I was impressed with their expertise and subsequent dealings with local council and regulations. They leave nothing to chance and explore every avenue for a smooth construction process. They have my highest recommendation in design and building a home.”- Dr Chandra Krishnan
“Building a house can be stressful, especially when what you signed up for with your builder is then not delivered. However, it doesn’t have to be this way.
My experience of working with Russell Garnett, and his team at Urban Revolution has only ever been positive. This is because their service culture is based on honesty, integrity, being true to their word, and they have a commitment to delivering exceptionally high standards. Most important is they are incredibly reliable, organised, deliver on what they promise, and communicate throughout the entire build process, which are traits that are rarely delivered in the construction industry.
Doing the right thing by people is simply in Russell Garnett’s blood. I know with great confidence that when I refer a client to Urban Revolution their project is in good hands.”- William De Ora
