“John was the contractor for a renovation ($75,000) to our house in Canmore, while a principal in another construction firm, and is now building a new house ($550,000) for our firm in River’s Bend Subdivision at Deadman’s Flats. My wife is a registered interior designer, and I am an architect, so our collective 80 years of experience brings a somewhat unique perspective to the construction industry. John understands and appreciates good design and the contribution that it makes to a successful project.
I have now worked with John on half a dozen projects for other clients, and know him to be a forward thinker / planner who engages the owner in early decisions. He is not afraid to challenge a client on a decision to ensure that an informed decision is made before construction proceeds. That said, John is thoughtful and respects the opinions of others. He’s also a hard worker who is “hands on” when required to get the job done in the proper fashion. The quality of workmanship that John insists on from his workers and subtrades is refreshing in an industry where deadlines and budgets seem to drive the project.”
