Legalizing Basement and Major Renovation Design and Permit

Arash is a true professional. we worked with Utes to complete our major renovation and create separate legal basement.

To ensure the project is being done according to the building codes and standards, we applied for construction permit from City of Toronto, and guess what the drawings got accepted within two weeks without any question. Arash not only helped us with the design and permit but also helped us to choose a contractor to do the job with a reasonable price.

Arash was very dedicated, meticulous and detail oriented. All the work was completed within given timeline, which included providing drawings with considering our concerns and requests and support the contractor during the construction period. City inspector was more than happy to see the quality of work done.

Highly recommended!

Arash and his team delivered commendable service

Arash and his team delivered commendable service in the architectural, structural, and mechanical design of my Kawartha Lake cottage, including permits and site plan approvals. While their expertise and efforts were praiseworthy, there were occasional back-and-forths and delays during the resubmission stages dealing with the Township and Conservation Authority. Nonetheless, their overall performance helped us achieving our goals in an efficient and quality manner.

Architect for my Garden Suite

Arash and his team are very professional. I reached out to many architects before choosing arash and found that he had the most knowledge, skill and professionalism for this job. I knew it wouldn't be easy but he honestly made the whole process go very smoothly. He knows all the by laws and understands the whole process of the committee of adjustments. He worked with the planning department and his drawings complied with what they were looking for and we went through at the committee. My fiancé and I cannot thank him enough for his hard work. Right now we are in the process of now getting the permit and I have faith that we will soon hopefully have it and be able to build in a month. Again this would not be possible without arash and his team.

Wall removal

I was 90% sure I could remove a wall for a kitchen reno. For peace of mind I called Arash. He showed up the next day on schedule and confirmed what I had suspected. Friendly service, easy to work with.
