Matt has been working in the building industry since 1988 when he commenced his carpentry apprenticeship. Early on, he subcontracted to local project builders Tony Kempe Homes and Holbrook Homes, and within 2 years was runnings 2 carpentry gangs, working from Hervey Bay to Brisbane, and west to St George.
In 1997 Matt moved to Toowoomba and worked as a subcontract carpenter for Ardenvale Homes where he refined the quality finishing skills which are necessary when working with stained timber.
In 2000 Matt obtained his builders licence and commenced building homes in Toowoomba and the Sunshine Coast before relocating his family back to Buderim, after purchasing the property he grew up in.
After years of experience, Matt knows the importance of collaboration with clients in order to bring their dream home to life. When you engage Matt and his team to work on your building project, you will enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having Matt on site throughout the build, to ensure that the process is smooth, and any unforeseen challenges can be quickly dealt with. This is particularly important in times where it is no longer common for the company Director to take a hands on approach, and personally oversee building projects from beginning to end. Not only is Matt on site throughout the build, he is also on the tools, and bring his years of experience and skill to your project. This is a rare thing in the construction industry today.
Matt is always accessible to his clients throughout a build, and uses his experience to help improve designs, making them more practical and cutting costs, where appropriate. In this way, he is able to add value to projects.
Matt can help you with landscaping as well, and you will enjoy the efficiencies that come from having the landscaping crew and equipment onsite from the very start of your project.
Efficient project management ensures an enjoyable build experience for clients, and attention to detail and meticulous finishing is paramount. This is what clients can expect when they engage MJ Evans Constructions.
"Having built homes previously, we were very particular about what we wanted from a builder for our current home. Matt secured our contract because we knew that he would be not only on site, but on the tools as well for the duration of the project. I think this is actually key to the quality of his work. And to be honest, a great relief, having recently moved from Central Queensland.
We designed our home, and Matt gave us suggestions throughout the build based on his experience around what he felt would work well, or not. My husband has previous experience in the building industry, and Matt was very respectful of this. At the same time, we found his honesty refreshing and his feedback was very welcome.
Matt was extremely easy to work with, and considering the project ran over Christmas, it was surprisingly quick, given it was not a small job.
A considerably positive aspect is Matt only uses quality tradesmen on his projects. Everything from the tiling to the painting is flawless. It was reassuring to us that Matt was there every day, overseeing every aspect of the build, with care and attention to detail.
It was a pleasure to create our beautiful home with Matt, and we have recommended him to lots of people. I guess that is the highest praise possible to give!”

"This was the second experience we had in building a home. And you could not compare the difference between the first build, to working with Matt and his team. Ours is a home that has been architecturally designed for a challenging block and a young family. Many of the features of the home are a little "outside the box". The design is quite unique, and required the experience and attention to detail that Matt offers.
From the outset, Matt was extremely accessible to us, and he helped us to turn our plans into exactly the family home we wanted. He assisted us to choose finishes, and showed us areas where we could save money, make improvements, and add value to the property. Matt’s experience was invaluable.
Matt was not only on site throughout the build, but he was also on the tools. His workmanship is exceptional, and he has an unparalleled eye for detail. What really made an impression on us was that Matt knew all the trades and suppliers so well. We did our research prior to engaging Matt, and we were impressed with the excellent reputation that he has built within the industry.
Personally, we had great confidence in Matt, throughout the delivery of this project. It almost felt as though he was building for a member of his family. It made the entire process seamless, and stress free for us."
