Hi Everyone,

it been a long time after busy with my 2nd new house reno. ( my first house designer also Alvin Aw)

who is the designer for my new house ...........ALVIN AW!!!!(Clapping)

Finally My New house reno is completed, First i want to thank you Alwin Aw for his muilt effort to completed the project within 2 months. Given him a short time, i had to find another place to stay for this 2 months.

The Aftermath was WOW!!!!! as you can see the picture before and after, it was a total transformation of the house. My whole family was in full of happy tears, it is a dream house for my family.

I want to thank his crew members in hacking, plastering,carpentry, plainting, plumbing,Flooring ,windows, windows grilles, electrical, aircon and cleaning. His crew member is awesome, which some of them is from my first punggol house.

All cabinet works are done in-house.The alightment is highly power which i was impress by their workmanship and speed.

Alvin had recommend a few shop to buy our lighting (chan huat lighting) n toliet (Wasser bath) accessories which is good lobang and fashion

Alvin is always very responsive(even at night, i disturb him lol....) and he will try to find a solution to the issues that crop up suddenly. He even help me to setup my ancestor tablet after many trips of searching for the L shape stainless steel bar to hold the whole wooden board. Millions of thank you!!!

Same as before,There is no hidden costs at all.Everything was explained clearly before hand. items can be add or remove and charge us at cost from the suppliers.

Electrical power socket and lighting installation is pre-design so the cost can be know faster. Last minutes add in some lighting , alwin aw purchase the lighting for us personally.

My family  are super happy that Alvin Aw and his crew who did their best to make our house so beautiful and cozy.

My highly recommendation to you all is Alvin Aw from matrix concept, confirm steady one!  Dun need to think liao, Just give him a call and meet up.😄

Info

Area: Saujana Rd, Bukit Panjang

Type: HDB 4-room Resale, corner unit (1987)

Size: 104 sqm

We got quotations from 5 different renovation companies for our first home and found Alvin Aw from Matrix Concept the lowest. We got to know him through the recommendation from our friends and we realized how easy it was talking to him because he listened and communicated well. We did not engage any ID as we have a design in mind and working on it with Alvin was a breeze. Since we had no ID, we had to be involved as much in choosing the materials for the house; the flooring, the walls, the furnishing, the laminating, the number of cupboards and drawers.... but with Alvin's help and experience, he is able to advise us with those that suits our lifestyle because that is most important. He believes that the house must suit your daily needs and practical and not just cos it looks good. Alvin is one chap who will speak out the reality of the situation of the house. If something is not possible, he will tell you as it is and suggest accordingly. He also will help to save cost as much as he can without jeopardizing the quality of his work. He also can anticipate future problems to the house and will advise and ensure that any renovation done will rectify and not cause any problems for you in the future. It is no wonder that many home owners engaged Alvin to renovate their first house and their subsequent house after. Alvin has a lot of house-related contacts and is not stingy with knowledge. He will help you beyond his job scope and due the time spent together working on our house, we have became friends and someone we can rely on when we need any house-related help. And also, if you're as OCD as us, engaging Alvin will without a doubt help you with your OCD needs because Alvin is one heck of an OCD guy!

I'll let the pictures and videos do the talking.

Area : Clementi Central

Type : HDB 4 Room

Size 96 sqm

I was looking for a renovation contractor and happened to read the topic on Alvin Aw from Matrix Concept Pte Ltd. Honestly speaking, I doubt the feedback from his topic as it seems too good to be true. This was probably due to my “not so good experiences” with several renovation contractors I encountered in the past. I believe I don’t need to elaborate the typically so called “not so good experiences” we commonly encounter.

However, I noticed the duration of his topic has been going on for 9 years and close to zero or no major negative feedback. I must say this is pretty impressive and amazing given how we Singaporean behaves (complain, LOL). In the real world, very few people will bother to leave down positive comments as they think this is part of the service. However, once something went wrong, tons of negative feedback will flood the threat.

After some considerations and based on no major negative feedback, I decided to meet up with him. Eventually, his personality convinced me to engage his services without me meeting any other renovation contractors.

Let’s talk above Alvin. He is a gentle, committable and very patient person. Good knowledge in interior design, especially maximizing space and the use of color scheme to your liking. Very responsive (very important to every home owner) and most importantly not pushing at all. He will deliver what he promised but he will not make any empty promises that he cannot deliver. This is what I liked.

Prior to renovation commenced, he even took time to inform my immediate neighbors and the one staying below my unit, worrying that the hacking might frighten young children or infant. This is one of those small things that differential him from those I had encountered with.

3 weeks into the renovation, Singapore began the one month lockdown due to Covid-19. Yes, i was one of the unlucky one. But, I was also one of the lucky one due to Alvin. Knowing that there will be a long period of uncertainty ahead, he made tremendous efforts to arrange as many works done as possible several days before the lockdown. Even after Singapore announced Phase-2 of Covid-19, many renovation activities are still impossible to carry out up till now due to critical shortage of manpower. Many of the new home owners were told that they can only move in in Sep/Oct period or later. But Alvin did a great job to push for my renovation to be completed in mid-July as promised. Besides his ability to plan efficiently, he went his way out to hire (literally fighting for) the limited pool of workers available in his industry, instead of telling you that he has no worker or his regular pool of workers could not enter Singapore, etc. Of course this come at a price - much higher cost due to the shortage of workers. However, he absorbed all the additional costs without charging me an extra single cent. I called this credibility, responsibility and trust.

Well, you may question me is his renovation really so perfect. Honestly, this is not a perfect world, especially during the Covid-19 period. In the middle and at the end of the renovation, we did observed several minor discrepancies. Important is he rectified them without delay and without giving me any excuses. That’s really great.

At the end of the day, I believe I have chosen the very right person and company to renovate my house. I also gain a friend, and a reliable renovation contractor in the course of my home renovation. 

Thanks to Alvin again and those who came by to complete my house during this difficult period, Covid-19.

Attached are some non-professional photos taken by myself.
