I worked with Rocco at Architalcan Design to design and apply for a permit with the city of Toronto to move our staircase. Rocco was extremely responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. He always responded right away, even responding to my emails at 10PM and weekends, when I would have questions or sent him updates. He was one of a few structural engineers that I called and I instantly felt that he was the best fit (at a very reasonable price).
Due to some concerns about the scope of the renovations from our contractors (HVAC, water lines etc.), Rocco made multiple updates to the drawings and charged very fairly for the updates. He was patient and listened until the drawings were exactly what we wanted and our contractors had no more concerns.
The process of applying for the permit was a breeze, since Rocco took care of the communication with the City and application process. Even with COVID, we received approval from the city within a week.
I would highly recommend Rocco and Architalcan Design to anyone looking to do major renovations and structural changes to their house.
