What Our Clients Say

I have been very pleased!

I have been very pleased with my experience working with Spani Developments and Larry Hunt. Larry is well known in the community and his excellent reputation gave me confidence. He has been very conscientious, reliable, knowledgeable, thoughtful and patient. All his team were also very polite and considerate as well as doing excellent work. The renovation of my home was a big and scary project for me but Larry and his team fulfilled all the tasks of the project beautifully and with great patience as I agonized over all the decisions. I can’t say enough about their work here. I thank them all and recommend them unreservedly to anyone planning a construction project.

I appreciated the no nonsense, realistic approach and get it done attitude!

We engaged Spani Developments in regards to our property on Redrooffs Road, specifically to help out with rebuilding the road, and addressing the bank stabilization from the dwelling to the shore. The work was complicated due to the logistics and site conditions. Doug and his crew were excellent in figuring out the best method to approach the work and facilitate the materials required, which meant multiple barge loads of heavy equipment and rock. The expert equipment operators made a difficult job look easy. I appreciated the no nonsense, realistic approach and get it done attitude. The work is complete, it transformed an unstable site to a fantastic yard.

I also had the opportunity to use Doug’s crew for installing a new water services, re connecting my water lines and finishing the plumbing for the build, again the workmanship was top notch, no drama. Happy client. In the construction industry value is key, Spani provided this, I would gladly recommend him to clients and friends and use them again myself on another project.

We are extremely satisfied with the final product!

Before building we met with several builders from the coast. Our decision to go with Spani Developments in 2011 was based on the quality of the homes he has built on the coast and our confidence in Doug and his people. Our experience was outstanding and we are extremely satisfied with the final product. His staff were competent, conscientious and very aware of staying on budget and on time. We have no hesitation in recommending Doug Spani’s company and have done so to a few people moving into the Silverstone development.

We found Doug to be honest, reliable and dependable. He is straight forward which leads to good communication among the parties involved. We were always appreciative of his input and the fact he was always true to his word. His staff and subcontractors were always agreeable and easy to work with as well as being very capable. My wife and I not only consider Doug as a contractor but also as friend. We would and have recommended him to others requiring his type of expertise.

The quality of work is very high

We worked with Spani and Larry Hunt on a significant renovation of our 1960s bungalow. We chose Spani because Larry took the time to really work with us on the quote, ensuring we had very few surprises or cost overruns. The quality of work is very high, commitments were kept and Larry was amazing to work with. His attention to detail, advice and easy going approach made this a great process for us. It was really nice to work with someone we could trust.

Completed ahead of schedule and under budget!

After building in a remote coastal area of British Columbia I have complete trust in the capabilities of Spani Developments. The level of service they provided from the initial design to the budget to the completed build was unparalleled. Doug took care of all the details such as barging, concrete and pump trucks that makes island building so complicated.

The Spani crew were a pleasure to work with as they arrived on time and kept the site clean and tidy. Because of their hard work my project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget. I would not hesitate to recommend Spani Developments for any future projects.

The superior builder on the Sunshine Coast!

Coming from off the coast we found that there are few builders who are capable of building a home that has so many unique architectural features. After meeting Doug and Kevin we were sold on Spani Developments and their ability to manage every aspect of building a creative home within any building site.

We were treated in a most professional manner and we always felt a partnership with the whole process. The tradespeople working on our home as contracted by Spani Developments were pleasant, respectful folk and made our worksite a very collegial place. As owners it was great to come to your home as a construction site and see everyone happy to be working there.

We have been in our home since Christmas of 2005 and we still marvel at all the thousands of details that have gone together so magnificently to create this fabulous home for us and we would not change a single thing. The planning and execution of this home as handled by Spani Developments was exemplary in every way.

Absolutely and without any hesitation we would recommend Spani Developments. No matter the size or complexity of a project we believe Spani Developments are the superior builder on the Sunshine Coast.

A definite advantage for any commercial or residential project

Spani has completed several developments for us on the Sunshine Coast including: a multi-unit apartment complex, an eight-home subdivision and our personal custom home in Pender Harbour.

We felt we were completely taken care of throughout the entire building process. One phone call and Doug and his team took care of all the details. Having all the right equipment and tools at their disposal, Spani Developments has a definite advantage for any commercial or residential project. His reputation as one of the Sunshine Coast’s most experienced builders is very well deserved.

Quick, efficient and professional . . .

I just wanted to pass along a BIG THANK YOU to Spani Developments for the quick, efficient and professional manner in which the gas leak problem at our house was handled.

Darragh was unbelievably helpful and professional and his speed and manner in which he dealt with this work is something rarely experienced with other contractors. We recognize Darrah’s outstanding work ethic and pass along our heartfelt thanks.

Thank you again!
