10/10

Dowsett worked attentively, sensitively and tirelessly on the lenghty, complex reno of our 1930s home with the added challenge of "green" design and materials. He is one of the most experienced "green" architects in Canada yet his humility was refreshing. He was a team player and the odd instance when there was something he didn't know or even a mistake made (don't fool yourselves, there are always mistakes...the better architects just make 'em fewer and smaller!)there was nothing but enthusiasm to learn. This is uncommon behavior in such a competitive business. I've been around new construction and renovation (including two other renos of my own) most of my adult life and I can safely say Dowsett is one of the best. If you're even thinking of "green" renovation/new construction, you would do well to interview Paul Dowsett.

Company Response

David: Thank you for allowing me to be a part this fantastic adventure. The reno of your house was nothing short of an amazing collaborative effort: starting with your vision and drive for the most sustainable solution possible, with an eye towards sensible and sensitive from the beginning; through to the great input of the entire structural, mechanical, electrical, alternative energy, landscaping, interior design and construction management consulting team. The trades that works on the site held the same sustainable beliefs as the project visionaries. I hold them all in very high regard. We couldn't have achieved this "re-imagining" with out them. To note that we have all come out friends at the other end is a testament to your team selection and leadership skills.
best regards,
