Luxury & Custom Home Builders
I have had the wonderful experience of hiring your company, Design - Spec Building Group as my contractor for home renovations. Phase 1(second floor) and Phase 2 (Miscellaneous) projects were completed before deadline provided to me. The staff was organized, punctual and extremely professional. The comfort of going to work daily and not feeling the stress of having virtual strangers in my home was incredible. I am proud referring you, Nick Malfara to friends and family who are inquiring about the job well done. You and your staff (Tony, Adam, Austin and Ryan) have been a pleasure and I am looking forward to my next future project. Sincerely
Dear Nick, and the Design‐Spec team, We have settled into our home in the past few months and we admire on a daily basis the work that was completed by Design‐Spec. And we have had this pleasure, not just once, but twice, in a span of four years! Working closely with Christine McGee of Jaqueline Glass and Associates on the design, and with your team for the execution of the vision we had collaborated on was a pleasure. Both you and Christine have high standards, and the end results are beautiful, functional and inspirational. Design Spec completed the large scope of both projects in very tight time frames which required the orchestration of trades, master craftsmen and specialty skills. In addition, we appreciated your willingness to listen to our list of “must‐haves” and making them happen. While the renovations did have some hiccups, as most of them do, we also liked your open lines of communication in the process. Tony’s quick response to concerns were also greatly appreciated, and his personal follow up and handling of situations was reassuring. Joey, as site manager, was again outstanding. He kept us informed of issues as they developed throughout each day and continually kept us in the loop. We appreciate the fact that we were consulted prior to any modifications that had to be made on site. What looks straight forward on paper is rarely a reality in a renovation. Joey took the time to explain to us, often with the contractors present, what our options were when items could not proceed as planned in the drawings. The end results were always satisfactory and enhanced our living space. It is a pleasure to work with him. All of the individuals brought on were professional and courteous. This was of particular importance to us as our very young and impressionable children often had to accompany us on site. As for the site itself, it was always neat and tidy. We now use the space in our house from top to bottom. It is difficult for us to decide which area we like best, as each floor is unique and utilized daily for specific purposes by each member of the family. The final results are impressive. We feel as if the renovation is magazine worthy, and could not be happier. Our experience with Design‐Spec from beginning to end was a pleasure. We have already recommended Design‐Spec to family and friends.
Over the course of a few years, Design-Spec Building Group has completed three large scale construction projects for us; a main floor and kitchen renovation, a basement renovation and a full backyard/landscape and swimming pool construction project. They consistently demonstrated a hands-on and very detailed approach to every facet of each project including design, construction and full completion. The owner, Nick Malfara was involved with each of the projects overseeing the scheduling, site staff and trade coordination. Design-Spec Building Group has the ability to efficiently manage their team and get the job done promptly, on schedule and on budget. They exceeded our expectations while managing multitudes of suppliers, trades and employees. Design-Spec Building Group Ltd is a class act company with integrity and a dedication to high quality work and satisfying their customers. We wholeheartedly recommend Design-Spec for any custom home or major renovation project.
Nearly a year has passed since we completed the building of our second location with Design Spec Building Group in Oakville and we are sorry for the delay in getting this to you so late. However, we did want to share with you our appreciation for the work you and your project managers, trades and employees did in building out our entirely new salon, especially Senior project manager, Tony. Everyone was courteous and professional and addressed our numerous questions and the changes made by our interior designer. The quality of the finished product was exceptional, on time and on the established budget for the project. Design-Spec's ability to liaise with the mall developer and their requirements to maintain a LEED certified development was also well coordinated. In the end, it all came together very well and we receive on-going compliments from our customers, both new and existing about how well designed and built the space is and how comfortable it feels. We would wholeheartedly recommend you and Design-Spec Building Group Ltd to any business owner requiring professional and well executed construction and project management
I am writing to let you know how much we appreciate Design-Spec Building Group dedication in getting our basement project completed. We are very pleased with the results and transformation of our basement. It was a dark concrete room and now it's a bright and cozy space that we can actually use. Tony B. the project manager was very organized to coordinate all staff and trades to work in a timely manner. He was very attentive and helpful. We would highly recommend Design-Spec Building Group to our family and friends requiring construction services. Thanks again B.H Vaughan
