What our clients have to say about us …
Trevor’s hands-on attitude gave us the confidence that projects would be completed as scheduled and Trevor kept the lines of communication open at all times. The project completion process was managed in a very satisfactory manner.
Greig Cooper, VP Operations
First Nations Bank of Canada
Trevor’s hands-on attitude and energy has been a great benefit to the project as he has been our “boots on the ground” for any challenges that have arisen. He has been instrumental in handling unforeseen circumstances with the renovation, the building owner and the local regulatory body. Even though there is 2,000 km between our office and the project location, we know exactly what is happening on site as a result of Trevor’s communicative efforts.
