It’s been exactly a month since the completion and handover of the renovation of our new penthouse done by Meter Square, and we are more than pleased to give them a BIG thumbs up for everything that May, Mint and the entire team has done for us. They have demonstrated their ability to not only design but project manage responsibly and deliver to expectations. We had selected Meter Square after spending over a year sourcing through various ID companies as well as speaking directly to selected contractors. Meter Square was the last ID company that we met up with in early 2017 and we were comfortable enough after speaking to May and Mint on the very first meeting, that we signed up with them immediately after. Uppermost in our mind, and one of the most important factors in our selection criteria, was that we wanted to work with people who are not only passionate in what they do but at the same time, demonstrate a willingness to truly listen and be open and flexible to ideas from our end. For a project of this scale to succeed, we knew it had to be a collaborative effort from both ends. So to test this with various IDs that we met up with, we mentioned the possibility of bringing over our existing Oriental furniture to be incorporated into the design to see who would be most willing to take on this idea seriously. And after our meeting with May and Mint, we knew that they would be the right company to help us design and deliver our vision. (*We ditched this idea of incorporating existing furniture soon after ) The renovation progressed very well, and as new ideas and opportunities presented themselves, we were so comfortable with the work done by the team that we were more than willing to bring forward additional scope of work that was originally meant to be done at a later phase. Meter Square took on this challenge without complaint and seamlessly incorporated the additions into their schedule without any hesitation. Throughout our interactions with Meter Square, we had been consistently impressed with May’s design experience and in particular her discipline and meticulous documentation approach. She believes that good and proper documentation serves as an important communication tool so that there are no misunderstandings between all parties. Given the scope of our renovation, we believe this to be one of the critical success factors. We were also very happy with Mint’s follow through of the actual renovation works and her interactions with her team and sub-contractors. She kept the project on schedule and ensured that all works were delivered according to plan. She was highly responsive and even made several excellent design suggestions that we were most happy to incorporate. Special mention should also go to Ah A, the carpentry lead, who is a joy to work with - always smiling and truly dedicated in his work. He has brought forth many invaluable ideas and we are really appreciative of the work done by him and his team. In all, our renovation project was completed within three months, hassle free and to our satisfaction. We were really glad we had chosen Meter Square - they maintained their willingness to listen throughout the entire project, and proved themselves to be reliable and dependable. They showed flexibility when the need arose, and in our opinion, they delivered very well on a project that was not run of the mill. We would without hesitation return to them for our future projects and we would confidently recommend them to anyone. Thank you May! Thank you Mint! And please send our thanks and regards to the entire team that was involved in our project. Wishing you success in all that you do and may you keep the design passion burning in you. Cheers!

2020 was an unprecedented year. I started looking for my resale flat right before the whole pandemic started and sourcing for an ID company. Meter Square (MS) was one of the companies I was discussing with. I met up with several IDs and Mint from MS was one of them. This journey was not easy to begin with because everything was blurry in terms of policies and processes. I met with Mint for the 2nd time few days before the great "Lock-Down" happened. I guess the ID plays an important role less of the ID firm itself. Mint has been very forthcoming and assuring since the beginning. No airy-fairy type of stories. What I appreciated about Mint was her candidness. She was not giving me assurance for the sake of closing the deal and that she was very genuine about the whole situation which sets her apart from the 6-7 other IDs I have met. Most importantly, we have the chemistry to discuss what I wanted and worries. She was not at all pushy. We reconvened the whole reno discussion after months of lock-down. My reno journey will not be as smooth sailing as it could be without Mint’s dedication. I have heard so many scary stories on the public domain around renovation works being delayed and bad handling of works/workers by some ID firms but I am glad Mint kept to her promise and made it a reality. Her design of the house and scheduling of work in the midst of this pandemic situation have won several praises from my friends and family members. Of course, I think I wanted to also give credit to her workers. The workers supporting an ID is equally important. I could sensed that Mint has a great working relationship with them. I met with some of them too when I was always visiting my unit during the renovation. What makes a great ID is also the very good and dedicated set of contractors who have been all so helpful and dedicated. They dont simply work blindly but I am impressed with how proactive they are in giving their opinions. Thumbs Up to them too. So a great ID firm is made up of a great reputation thru its dedicated and responsible ID cum workers. Thks MS, Mint and all that made this renovation journey less painful and so much more enjoyable in this incredible year. Not an easy feat!

Read good review about May's portfolio and engage her service. We required alot of storage space and she had designed and created ample storage cabinet for us and given helpful advice on other storage alternative. She will update us upon every job done thru wat apps. During this covid period with tight manpower, they able to complete the renovation within the timeline. Thank you May and team for the good job done.

This is our second time engaging Meter Square and they have never let us down. Our ID, May, is experienced, reliable, organised and efficient. Carpentry works are of high quality and their workers are polite and well-mannered. With May handling our project, our minds are at ease in terms of deliverables and ability to meet project timeline. May also provided good suggestions and alternatives throughout the design process. We do however find the prices a tad on the high side. We also had to incur some additional charges, eg when the plumber had to make another trip to install the bathtub when the delivery of the bathtub was delayed. We felt that the project schedule could have been shared with us earlier so that we can ensure our vendors for lights, bathtub, bathroom accessories are able to deliver according to their project schedule. It was challenging at our end to coordinate with the vendors delivery of items to ensure we meet their project schedule and not having to incur additional costs due to additional trips. Coordination and communication with our vendors could also be tighter. This may not be an issue if u work with their partnered vendors but prices may be higher than if u source your own suppliers. Overall, we would still highly recommend Meter Square.
