Basement Underpinning

Excellent experience working with K.H. Davis on the underpinning of our century home in uptown Toronto. They made the entire process seamless, from coordinating with our designers, completing drawings, and submitting to the city for permit. Jomar, the lead engineer on the project, was very patient in explaining options to us and helpful in coordinating with our contractors to ensure everything was built to specification. Would definitely recommend.

Engineering services

I have worked with Ken. Jomar and Kevin from K.H. Davis multiple times and they always deliver as promised. Their drawings are clear and precise and they have a great relationship with the city inspectors which makes projects go smoother. I would recommend them to anyone looking for professional engineering services.

Structural Engineering for a Renovation

K H Davis has done an outstanding job helping us get a renovation project going. Insights and extensive explanations were provided along with some creative ideas to achieve our goals involving a multi sage renovation. Highly recommended - can't imagine better service and communication.

Design Conversion of 2 story semi to 3 story duplex

We hired Davis Engineering for a major project turning our 2 story semi into a 3 story duplex. Everyone at the firm was very knowledgeable and professional. The Manager of Architectural Technology created the plans and ensured we got through Committee of Adjustment on the first go and all permits where issued; the Chief Engineer was patient with our questions and offered extremely helpful advice. The owner assisted with all questions our neighbours had regarding under pining. We are so pleased with the final results. Highly recommend this team!

Key Part of My Business

Ken and his team have always provided excellent service and quality with their drawings. As a contractor, I depend on accurate and timely structural drawings to obtain municipal permits and ensure excellent quality builds. With KH, I get both of these things consistently.

I will continue to use KH Davis in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them either.

Very Professional and Solutions Oriented

We hired KH Davis in connection with our underpinning job. Ken and his team were extremely skilled and we felt very comfortable completing the project knowing that KH Davis had completed the structural plans. We had a couple of issues pop up during the underpin/reno, as you do with old houses, and Ken was able to come up with creative solutions to ensure that the final project was done without modification to our original plans. Highly recommend!
