I paid Luke Kenney to do the Engineering Drawings, the permit submissions for the City of Toronto, Urban Forestry, and the Toronto Conservation Authority, and any revisions required to get it approved for deck design that I had made by an awesome designer.
He completed the drawings on schedule and asked for full payment upon submission of the plans to the city. I paid him (foolishly).
I then followed up with him for weeks on the status of my Conversation Authority Submission and my Urban Forestry Submission. He repeatedly assured me he was about to submit them....he never did....and he basically stopped responding to me.
I had to go back to my designer who helped me create all the documentation required for those submissions.
His lack of response cost me months in my design process and ultimately I had to pay someone else to make the changes to my engineering drawings. I asked him for a partial refund and I never heard back from him.
Overall, this was not a good experience.
