We hired Laura to help us on a full gut project in Etobicoke.
We are happy with the optimized layout for Main floor and basement from Laura. For a long and narrow footprint, Laura sure makes the space more functional and user-friendly.

Thanks for your review as this space was tight! And we did it, fit in the requirements people want, such as - open plan, lots of light, storage, great kitchen storage with island, dining area with alcove and main floor powder room - all while making the space look much larger than it actually is!!!
We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience.

Laura presents a number of unique design options that echo our need and personal style. Her designs are always bigger and better than we had hoped for. This is our fourth major project with Bravehart and we have been incredibly pleased with the results of their work.

Finalizing the mood, colour scheme and elements of a master ensuite is a very personal and challenging task. We are happy to present 4 different design colour schemes you can work with - after having provided 3 different space plans for selection of one.
The new TV and fireplace feature wall is not only much better ergonomically (your husband had to twist his neck previously!!!) but also makes a big statement in the room and anchors the space together.
We were also happy to present different options for additional storage solutions for all of your clothes and shoes - and a new powder room in the same area!
Now you never have to leave the space!
All we need to add is the coffee maker!!!!

We called Bravehart Building for the design of our kitchen and increased storage on our main floor.
Laura came and reviewed our existing space which is too small and does not have enough storage or an area for my friends to sit and talk while I cook.
While it was clear that we could not change the size of the space, due to a staircase and a powder room just outside the kitchen entry, Laura did come up with a plan for more storage and social interaction in the kitchen. She added a big “breakfast bar” for four people, with cabinetry underneath for additional storage. She added a large pantry in an area where we had no storage before and made recommendations for new cabinet sizes in the cooking area itself.
We are very pleased and think her ideas, her work is very thoughtful. We would have no hesitation recommending Bravehart for space planning or architectural ideas.

Thanks for your comprehensive review. This space is challenging as we were unable to move the walls, due to a number of reasons, and this resulted in having to be focused on best solutions for work spaces, entertaining spaces and storage. Know your family has a very robust social life so all were equally important to deliver in a very small, existing area. Look forward to the final result!
Thanks for your business and your help in refining the space and cabinetry plan.

We have worked with Laura and Bill on numerous projects for the past eight years and we are proud to have been their associates.
We enjoy a certain prestige ourselves and having done work for Braveheart can only add to it.
Construction and renovation companies do not come better than Braveheart Building Desing and Build.

We renovated a new space for our office. As you can see in the 'before' photo, we started with an empty office shell. Essentially we wanted to create an open collaborative space that would motivate the team and allow us to host events. The 'after ' photo shows the new space is gorgeous. It is exactly what we wanted. Both Laura and Bill are outstanding people to work with. I only gave them a 9 rating because of delays that were due to a former employee. However when the issues were identified, both of them went over and above to get the work done to our complete satisfaction. We had some stressful issues with the delays, and in the end they worked hard to ensure I was satisfied, and that the work was s to the highest standards. Adding to their challenge was that I had hired a designer that they had never worked with before. They all worked well together. Thank you Bravehart for a job beautifully done!

Thanks for taking time to review our firm. The offices are beautiful and functional - a pleasure for your team to work within.
Despite some major glitches in permit drawings and other construction direction details, we all prevailed and got you the space you need, working as a true team when the going got tough!
It was very much a pleasure to work with you, your designer, your supplier of building permit drawings and some of your building trades.
We really appreciated the opportunity to contribute to your fast growing, successful business.

We work with Bravehart Building and know that Laura and Bill are an experienced Design and Build team
For example, on a recent project, Laura and our team at Cambria provided the client a photo reference of where the veining pattern in our Brittanica slab would fall in relationship to the sink cut out; to maximize the percentage of the bold strokes in the pattern that the client loved.
The end result is nothing short of spectacular!
This client's project is stunning! She has worked with a reputable company who offers quality products. Her Cambria countertop will also look stunning for many years to come and peace of mind with our lifetime warranty.
It takes this kind of detailing between Designer and Cambria to deliver this high level if quality.

Your attention to detail before cutting expensive (and beautiful) material, is very much appreciated.

When we first met with Bravehart to supply flooring for their projects, Laura was very careful to inspect our product for quality; both for the engineered wide plank oak itself, and the Finish on top of the wood flooring.
Laura is very aware of issues surrounding sub-standard flooring manufacturing and is especially meticulous about wide plank applications, examining every detail to remove any risk to the customer. Bravehart will only specify high quality flooring.
We have worked with Bravehart to great success on a few projects and both Bravehart and their clients are very happy with our product, our service and our advice.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Bravehart as a conscientious and knowledgeable company when it comes to hardwood flooring.

Specifiying the correct flooring for the appropriate application is mission critical. When an inappropriate product is utilized, it can put the entire project at risk, especially with regards to flooring in open plan spaces, the majority of what our company does.
Working with companies such as yours - who produce an excellent, stable product - is our focus and our client's "insurance policy".

Given Bill's background in Civil Engineering training and your great capacity to understand how soil types, structure and water infiltration can impact our underpinning projects - We are ready for the occasional difficult projects that we encounter - a team like you and Bill and our architectural technologist are unbeatable at finding the correct solution for each condition.

We are a carpentry company that has worked together with Bravehart for the past three years and have had nothing but positive experiences doing so. Bill and Laura consistently provide streamlined and detailed plans that rarely deviate from the the beginning of the project to the end. Bill's knowledge of structural engineering is second to none and Laura's design specifications are clear and very thorough. The materials are selected accordingly and are always of the highest quality making installation simple. They do a lot of ‘open plan’ main floors and they know how to specify the appropriate flooring to be stable in ‘open span’ conditions. The subcontractors are clearly seasoned, efficient and professional tradesmen and are a breeze to work with. Bravehart Building Design & Build has been the best firm we've worked with and we would recommend them without hesitation.

Thanks to you and your team for helping with the 'great discussions' we encounter when renovating an existing space; including structural considerations, space considerations, and more. We appreciate your commitment to finding the best work-arounds possible.

My husband and I have worked with Bill and Laura for more than 10 yrs. as we are one of their subcontractors. During this time we have found them to be conscientious, diligent and professional. Their work is second to none and they hire only the best trades. We have been to numerous sites and can attest to the quality of the work and the professionalism of their operation. They strive to perfectly balance the needs of their clients with the peculiarities of the various trades to result in a renovation/build that meets the homeowner criteria and fulfills the building code requirements. I would highly recommend them.
