We hired Kennedy Construction for an extensive remodel which involved primarily an external renovation, but included new kitchen. Kennedy Construction transformed our dated 1960's home in North Vancouver into a West Coast/Cape Cod masterpiece. We interviewed many construction companies (including design-build firms). However we found Andrew had the most creative ideas which were also realistic for our budget. He really took the time with us during the quotation stage to help us get drawings done up, sharing his ideas, and give us a thorough budget. He also came highly recommended by his sub trades and the many references we contacted. Andrew and his team were a dream to work with, (we miss his crew Will, Sylvan, and Falkin!)
Our renovation involved an extension to enlarge the new kitchen, completely removing the roof structure and replacing with a very different roof-line, building out a new front entrance, recladding the exterior of the house in cedar shingles, adding a new deck of the master bedroom, transforming our kitchen space to open concept, which involved the extension, vaulting ceilings, and taking down a wall. All of this was completed on time and within 5 months. We are very grateful to Andrew and his team for working tirelessly down to the wire to get it done before Christmas.
I would also highly recommend his sub trades - especially the electrician, plumber, and counter installer.
Andrew was easy to work with, very responsive. He presented creative solutions when situations arose, always taking the time to explain things to us and give us several options to choose from. He was also adept in working with the complex District permit and inspection process. Above all, the quality of the workmanship is what we are most happy with. We would highly recommend Kennedy Construction and are happy to provide a reference.
