We live in a large, open concept turn of the century Annex home that was fully renovated in early 80s. We love the space and location but the kitchen was dated and poorly designed for a multi-cook family like ours. After evaluating several options, we choose BKDP for a kitchen design/build that was completed, on-time, on-budget, in fall 2011. We both work full time in demanding jobs and have a school-aged child so the prospect of a time-consuming kitchen reno had been daunting. Our experience with Fardid and Kenneth was terrific. In the design phase, they spent several hours with us in our existing kitchen to understand what we wanted, came up with an excellent concept for re-orienting the space, and took detailed notes on the look, feel and materials we liked. We liked the design they produced (on time) and thought the price for the design was extremely reasonable. Selecting materials and appliances was far less time consuming than we had feared because we were able to see the vast majority of the materials at their offices, avoiding endless weekend drives north of the city to look at tiles, back-splashes, cabinets, etc. When we did travel to buy things directly, they had called ahead, clarified all of the details, and we received their professional discount at the point of sale. The build phase took 10 weeks, slightly longer than predicted due to delivery problems with a sink that was beyond their control. We made a substitution which they sourced quickly, and were finished in time to cook Thanksgiving dinner. We are delighted at the outcome, a great, functional, sleek space perfect for the cooks and out guests. There were a few things that needed attention after completion of the work. We had no difficulty getting the contractors back to take care of them, including a visit from Kenneth himself when one issue wasn't resolved - he fixed it himself.
This firm has excellent design sense, project management capability, and attention to customer service that makes renovation reasonably "pain-free" and delivers a great outcome. We would not hesitate to use them for future designs and renovations.
