About Maximo Homes

Hi and welcome to Maximo Homes. My name is Joshuel Tan, director and supervisor of Maximo Homes Pty Ltd. I thank you for spending time finding more about us, what we believe, promote and value. We are based on the Sunshine Coast of Australia and have been in operation since 2006. I, Joshuel, have been building since 1996 in New Zealand and have been building on the coast since 2001.

In 2007 we entered a HIA housing awards competition and came away with first prize for a large renovation we completed in Castaways Beach, Noosa. Since then we have built duplexes, large and small renovations and new homes, timber deck and patio areas, repairs and extensions to existing homes.

We pride ourselves with quality workmanship and use only the finest material to establish ourselves as per our motto, “Maximo Homes – A Symbol of Quality”.One of our unique qualities I believe is our ability to “Tailor make” every job as per our customers ability and needs. We value every customer no matter the size of project as we believe word of mouth advertising to be our biggest asset.In this new era of building and climate change we promote energy efficient building practices and design and relay that to you, the customer, for better living conditions and economics.

What our clients say

I have known Mr Josh Tan for about 3 years. We first met when he was engaged with a complete house renovation in Eckersley Avenue, Buderim. I was so impressed with his work that when I needed some renovations he submitted a quote and completed the work in the agreed time frame.

The materials were first grade and the workmanship was of a very high standard. I have no hesitation in recommending his integrity and work ethic.

Doug Wilson

We have had two renovations completed very competently by Josh Tan of Maximo Homes and highly recommend him. Josh has strong communication and design skills, an excellent eye for detail, and a demonstrated commitment to achieving a high quality outcome. Josh was on the job himself for all major parts of the work which were his responsibility, his team appeared to be well coordinated and focused, and they were courteous, tidy and easy to deal with. Josh added good ideas in the design process, and provided sound advice on the numerous decisions required as the work progressed. Importantly, Josh is a person of integrity and you can trust him to deliver a project which will meet or exceed your expectations within agreed costing parameters.

Tony and Lyndall O’Rourke

I first met Josh when he was working as a carpenter on a home I designed in Noosa and I was always impressed by his attention to detail and his ability to work with others. When it came to doing a renovation to our own home Josh
immediately came to mind and my wife, Emma, and I engaged Josh to carry out the project. Our expectations were high and Josh delivered. With his team of employees and contractors, again his attention to detail and his willingness to work with both Emma and I, made the project go very smoothly, on budget and, most importantly, on time. It has now been a couple of years since the work was done and it is still as good as new. We would have no hesitation in recommending Josh (Maximo Homes) to any of our clients or friends.

Do you want more or less involvement? 
We can inform you every step of the way or as brief as you like.


Are there some parts of the project you would like to do yourself?
If you are capable and aid in the completion of the project, why not.


Do you live a fair distance from the project but want to know how it’s going? 
We can photograph every stage of the project and email you when ever it suits. Are any of your friends contractors who you’d like involved in the process? If they are BSA licensed with current insurances, why not.


Is the builder on site a majority of the time or is he sipping Lattés on Hasting St? 
We make an effort to be on site as much as possible to ensure our quality and safety standards are met on every project.


Is this company capable of this nature of project?
I, Joshuel, have been in both residential and commercial building projects since 1996. From building warehouses 300 x 100 mtrs wide, refurbishing shopping centres and office blocks to building timber decks in a retirement village.


Can I visit the site any time I like?
A simple phone call before hand to ensure safety and practicality will generally gain you access most times.


Who organizes plans and council lodgment/approvals?
We can organize draftsmen or Architects to develop plans and lodge with council.


Is it possible to get a full quote for a complete/overhaul renovation? 
Yes it is, we have the ability and know how to provide such a service. The other option is to complete the project on a cost plus bases which gives you, the owner, more freedom to design/construct and manage the project as you please. Care must be taken on this sort as budget blow outs can occur rapidly.


Why are renovations so expensive? 
If you consider that we first have to remove something and usually rectify inappropriate building standards before we even start the actual building addition. The added time and material factor becomes quite substantial and usually unseen when the final product comes to completion. Hence the question why and the tradies answer – “if only you were here a couple of days ago”.
