We are looking forward to Doors Open Toronto this year.

After our move this week we will need some downtime and what better to do than a busman’s holiday. We are going to visit some of the building on the list of Open Doors Toronto.

We love design and Open Doors Toronto is a great occasion to see some of the great architecture and buildings Toronto has to offer.

Design is a passion for us and many of Toronto’s Architects are designing innovative and novel buildings. Ultimately, we would like to build these new buildings and as a first step we are now offering to architects and designers a new service. We provide realistic estimates for the projects during the design phase. The aim is to help architects and designers provide complete information to their clients. If you are an architect or a designer we would like to hear from you to see how we can be of service.
