Basement underpinning engineering

Rocco was excellent. He delivered on time, did great work, and gave me a lot of support working through the approvals process (there were zoning and compliance issues). He also gave great restaurant recommendations in Rome.

2.5 Storey Home Architectural Plans

I came off of working with another company and had a terrible experience.

Rocco was able to get my project back on track! We completed the plans and got our permits shortly after. Once we opened the walls we realized we needed to make small adjustments to the plan, Rocco was able to accomodate and re-submitted to the city so that our project stayed on time.

gutting the house

Rocco was terrific. He was very responsive to our suggestions and ideas and made the whole process simple. He offered strong advice on the important things like ventilation, insulation, and structural support. It was easy to work with him.

Permit drawings for a new house

Rocco is amazing

I was stuck for several months and used the services of 2 separate architects unsuccessfully prior to using Roco. My lot is tiny and there were several issues to deal with. Rocco had the drawings completed and verbal approval from the building department in less than a week. LESS THAN A WEEK
Rocco knows how to get the job done right. He is extremely knowledgable and has a highly technical mind and a fantastic sense of design. Rocco saved the day.
It is clear that he loves what he does and only produces his best Work. It was a pleasure working with him.

Interior, HVAC, Window Drawings

We hired Rocco to help with doing drawings for our home interior renovation.

He was helpful with interfacing with / navigating the city permit office which is the value he brought to the project. He was also available while he was on vacation which provided a level of comfort during the beginning stages of our project. We did have a few revisions which he helped facilitate with the city which allowed us to get them clear before the city provided their permits along with ensuring HVAC and elevation drawings were done in a way that it could all fit under one cost.

Overall, good experience, I would consider using him again for my next project.

Design for open concept layout

Rocco did our design for removing couple of load bearing wall to make our house more open concept. His service has been great from doing the design to getting the permission. He replied to emails and worked out with city even though he was in Italy. Definitely recommend him.

Permit Application

It is very challenging to find a professional or company that is both extremely effective and efficient. Rocco embodies both qualities in such a graceful way. He was very effective in working with us to explain potential solutions to making our home open concept and also extremely efficient in helping us get a permit application in less than a week despite his travels at the time. He is extremely committed to providing excellent work for his clients and it has been such a pleasure working with him and his company.

Architect

Hi, when we decided to renovate our kitchen few months ago we quickly realized the scope of work was going beyond merely changing cabinetry and that we needed an architect to move forward. We found Architalcan Design on Homestar and asked Rocco for his help to make engineering drawings and City permit. This process was quickly executed, in few days we had drawings made and received our City Permit 2 weeks later. Rocco is very organized, resourceful and always available to answer questions. We appreciated his attention to details and his advice during the design phase of our project. We would recommend Rocco to anyone who needs an architect.

Drawings and Permit for interior alternations

Rocco has been a pleasure to work with. We hired Rocco to do the drawings for our interior alternation as well as applying for the required permit with the city. Rocco was able to provide the drawings within days and when city asked for clarification Rocco was able to provide an update within the same day. I am very impressed with his level of service excellence, will recommend Rocco's service to my friends.
