"It was a pleasure to work with Luke and Sharon on the Little Sahara Visitor Centre.  They're builders committed to quality and efficiency, coupled with a design sensitivity allowing them to successfully complete unique projects."

Ian Kent, Principal, Kangaroo Island Community Education

Parndana Campus – Trade Training Centre Food Processing and Hospitality Training Facility & Civil Construction Workshop

“Kauppila Pty Ltd liaised with government agencies in the early contract days to scope out a project that worked within the budget constraints, without ever compromising teaching facilities, and always ensuring rigorous quality standards applied. Luke and Sharon Kauppila communicated with and consulted engineers, architects, Education Department personnel and Kangaroo Island Community Education leadership. Above all, they delivered the projects on time and we are very proud of our new facilities.  We would be pleased to recommend Kauppila Pty Ltd as extremely capable and competent builders for both government and private commercial works.  Working with Kauppila Builders will always ensure that money spent in the building contract will return back to the community, wherever possible, through the use of carefully selected high quality local trades and services, providing a “win-win” situation for Kangaroo Islanders and stakeholders.”

Straw Bale Home, Kingscote, Kangaroo Island

“Luke and Sharon proved to be very capable and adaptable builders. We decided on a straw bale house and they were able to work with our architect to make it happen. We’re very pleased with our home and the energy efficiency is exceptional.”

Maiorano & Sutton

Frenchmans Terrace Beach House, Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island

"We are happy to recommend Luke and Sharon. We wanted to build a holiday house in Penneshaw to maximise the unspoilt views from our block that overlooks the coast. Kauppila Builders were recommended to us and we are pleased to recommend them to others. They weren't the cheapest builder to quote the project, but we were pleased to choose them. They delivered quality building work and great service. It was a pleasure to find a building company based on Kangaroo Island. The bonus was supporting the island economy by hiring a local builder and all their associated trades and suppliers."
