We always strive for complete customer satisfaction with every project we undertake.
Read on to hear from some of our happy customers.

I have known Irne since 2017 and he is an approachable and easy person to deal with, always willing to help others where possible.

He has a natural talent for what he does and is an excellent problem solver, with a can-do attitude towards work and projects, while still remaining professional. Irne has been a great help to me over the years on an advisory level, doing work for a franchise group of well known creches and also a great motivational inspiration giving technical support and training support over the two years of my studies in the construction industry.
Having a natural ability for building new projects or just general maintenance, his building knowledge and skills are exceptional and I can recommend Irne to anyone looking to do any building work or general maintenance without any hesitation.
As a member of a local church, he can often be found volunteering his time and services whether it be maintenance around the church or even helping in community projects and services. Irne will be a great asset for any building work requirements or projects which you may have around your home or business.

Irne, Retro Construction, has done some maintenance and small building work for us in the last decade. We noticed that he is meticulous and very observant as a good builder should be.

His attention to detail is extraordinary and he does not hesitate to attend to small, or big challenges as they happen.

We’ve become good aquitances over the years, and now I find myself calling him up even for the things I could probably do myself, or just to have a chat, or even, for advice. I keep his coffee ready whenever he has to work here. I know he has a few other clients that he does maintenance and smaller projects for on a regular basis.

My email is to confirm that Irne is professional at all times and that he helps where ever they can. Whenever he uses staff from his crew, the supervision is great and he ensures instructions are clear and well understood. He would keep a close eye on progress of the project and when completed, is checked and signed off in good time. Wishing him all the best.



I am writing to highly recommend Irne Grobler, the owner and manager of Retro Construction.

I had the privilege of working alongside Irne through various commercial and residential projects for the past 26 years. If you are looking for an honest, hard-working, and ethical contractor, then Irne would be the perfect option for your project. Irne is highly skilled and always comes up with the best and most cost-effective solutions. He is a true example of what many other contractors aspire to be. You are more than welcome to contact me if you want to further discuss all the great achievements he has achieved through his many years in the construction industry.

Commercial Construction Manager

Retro Construction Limited was the contractor for an building an extension to our existing house.

The work included site preparation, preliminary and general concrete works, framing and roof carpentry, roof tiles, brickwork and practical completion.
The $81,896 project, which also included scaffolding erection and removal was delivered on-time and within budget in an extremely professional and friendly manner. I would recommend Retro Construction Limited to any prospective customer requiring construction/building works to be carried out.

I’m honoured to provide a letter of recommendation for Irne Grobler from Retro Construction.

Irne built a bedroom for me and my family. I interviewed several builders for this bedroom build but settled on Irne because his company also provided tradesmen contacts such as an electrician, painter, and architectural designer. He topped it off by providing a quality assurance. The correct products were difficult to source during the Covid pandemic, but Irne managed to secure some for me through his contacts. Irne always held a cheerful composure during my many questions and e-mails before the build started. The quality of the finished build was very high, and my wife and I are very happy. I can only recommend Irne and Retro Construction to other people.

Irne has been my go to company for repairs and refurbishments for the last 3 years. Jobs were always well priced and completed within the timeframe. I would highly recommend Retro constructions for any jobs big or small.

The Retro team has done some interior renovations for us. Although it wasnt a large project, consisting mainly of painting, carpets and repairs the team was efficient timewise and the the detailed Quote provided seemed to have ensured that no extras had to be charged for afterwards. It was also a good experience dealing with them, very friendly and hardworking people. The office seemed to provide good support to the team whenever it was needed. I am happy to recommend! Cheers, Lizelle.

Mr Grobler coverted our garage to a granny flat a few years ago.The amazing part was it didn't look like a flat at all once done. He used high end finishes and even now, most days i still consider living there instead of in my house. I always receive compliments when someone views it and i never struggle to rent it out when it goes open. Happy to share photos to anyone who pm me, so i can brag. 😂The project was done within a reasonable budget and at a good speed too. Engela.
