What my clients say about our work.

Wayne’s attention to the craftsmanship at levels was impeccable. This also includes the “behind the walls” attention to detail and quality construction that would normally not be seen by the home buyer. this ranges from the beyond code civil works and installation of the foundation, to the quality products used in the framing, to the fine detail and craftsmanship applied to even the simple design elements such as the accents on the staircase (hand crafted rosewood). His small crew is extremely professional and competent in all aspects of the construction (foundation to finishings), which even included the construction and installation of a 20m footbridge over a stream running through the property. When we were on site, you could tell his crew was appreciative of Waynes attention to detail, and high expectations of quality and workmanship. Even the small things mattered, such as tidying up and cleaning up the worksite after every day. When I see behaviours such as that, it shows that they are proud of their work, and it would flow to all aspects of their construction.

Our house was challenged with at the permitting stage requiring three levels of regulatory approvals (regional, provincial and federal), archeological studies, geotechnical studies, and environmental studies. Wayne and our environmental consultants stickhandled those all through a very convoluted government approval process.

We were provided numerous references that we all visited. The exemplary quality and high praise was given to us from his previous clients. As well, we called a number of his suppliers who all stated that he would give them plenty of notice on his material supply requirements and required delivery date. For us, that was extremely important as we had a development site that had limited laydown areas, so “just in time” delivery of materials was critical to maintaining an efficient crew. From what we experienced, I would be very comfortable is highly recommending his project management and general contractor skills. We were on site while many of the trades were present, and he only used trades that met his expectations for quality and workmanship too.

As we were in a different city during much of the construction, we relied on Wayne to keep us abreast of progress, changes and issues. He was always available by phone, text or email and sent us numerous photos during construction.

We are very pleased with our home, the quality and workmanship that went into it, and all aspects of Wayne’s management, design and construction skills.
