With the completion of the project 2 year warranty review, Strata would like to thank the BC Building Science team for being an integral part of this successful project. Effective planning and professionalism was evident throughout the project, from building the scope of work and design concept, issuing and supervising the tender bidding process, managing the construction phase, providing the envelope condition review, and assisting with the warranty review.
Your skills in communicating and meeting with Strata Council, the project committee, and with owners at information and special general meetings were particularly valued.
Our Strata’s experience with BCBS in managing our deck replacements has been outstanding in all aspects. All of the staff have been very professional, kind,conscientious,thorough and very easy to work with. Their services are 5 star and I would definitely recommend them to others.

I am on Strata Council of our building which is nearing completion of a complete outer renovation and upgrade. We chose BCBS for our Consulting Engineers and were assigned Jordana Collison as Project Manager. From the outset, we immediately felt comfortable working with her and recognized her professionalism and desire to provide us with a positive outcome. Her patience in working with Council during the planning phase was very much appreciated, given the diverse opinions and suggestions emanating from members. Jordana had a vision of how our building could ultimately show off its potential and was instrumental in giving us the tools to be able to come up with an amazing, modern design. An important aspect of a project such as this is trying to stick to budget and Jordana had managed to keep us within our projected costs even though a number of upgrades and unforeseen issues came up. Jordana has an exceptional passion for detail. This was very important given the complexity of design and materials included in the project. I had the pleasure of being directly involved as a liaison between the Contractor, Jordana, Council and Owners and saw how professionally she was able to delicately manage a balance of steadfastness and resolve while trying to keep everyone pleased with the outcome. I would personally recommend her services on any project she may manage given her professional manner and easy rapport.

We have worked with BC Building Science since 2002 on several projects. We have found their engineers and technicians to always be available and helpful with very fast turn around time. They have understand each project and circumstance and worked with us to find the best solution. They are reliable and have competitive pricing. We look forward to working with them on future projects and confidently recommend them for Envelope Consulting.

I am writing to express my complete satisfaction and appreciation with the work Steve has done for us on our roofing program this year. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steve and BCBS.
Hopefully, we’ll have more funds in 2017 to complete further roofing on our buildings.

Regular updates and minutes of site visits and meetings were provided and were thorough in order to keep the council as up to date as possible. Status updates were also provided to all owners which in the end became very important as the Contractor had some scheduling issues with completing some aspects of the work.
In particular, Mr. Steve Krampl was our dedicated Project Consultant and we felt he gave the project his greatest effort and made the council very comfortable that their interests were being looked after – despite some challenging moments during portions of the project.
Along with Andrew Creighton, our Project Manager with BCBS, we found the entire consulting team at BCBS were very professional and courteous and we would not hesitate in referring them to others.
All phases of the project were professionally handled and well presented, from the initial presentations through progress reporting and the closing documentation. The maintenance manual provided gives excellent direction and will be of great value to future councils. Additionally, the project over site was exemplary with ‘hands on’ involvement being key as issues were dealt with as they arose.
Your firm’s guidance throughout the process was of great service as it provided much needed expertise,
particularly in dealing with some of the peculiarities of the project.
I was impressed with the level of communication provided by BCBS during the project, and appreciated the fine efforts and commitment of our Project Manager, Andrew Creighton. I would be pleased to refer BCBS to others interested in attaining their services.
BC Building Science provided excellent service for our strata, from the initial meeting with Andrew Creighton and Jordana Collison to discuss their proposal for services, to the final wrap party with the strata members, BCBS and construction crew. Andrew and Jordana were always accessible and responsive to our questions, and I met regularly with Jordana and the construction manager throughout the renovation for project updates. BCBS regularly provided comprehensive documentation which was shared with all strata members, including meeting minutes, field reports, progress reports and budget updates. The on-site inspections conducted by Jordana and the BCBS structural engineer were thorough, and any deficits in the work were immediately identified and brought to the attention of the construction manager for remediation.
Overall the project went smoothly and completed on schedule. We are very pleased with the outcome of the project as well as the professional services rendered by BCBS, and would highly recommend the company and its team to the others.
In addition to their professionalism, we really appreciated their expertise in this area. They prepared all of the required details and specifications for a contractor bid to occur and helped us through the bidding process as well as setting up the legal contracts with the contractor who won. Throughout the renovation construction, BC Building Science was there to stay on top of the contractor ensuring the contract specs and details were being followed. They provided lots of documentation throughout the process, as well as close out and maintenance documentation that we can use for future reference.
I found the entire consulting team at BCBS to be very professional and courteous, and would not hesitate to refer them to others. The building renovation has added a great deal of value to owners, and I believe we can all look forward to many years of enjoyment of our recently renovated homes.
Knowledgeable, organized, helpful and friendly personnel. We’re very happy with how our building renovation turned out, would definitely recommend this company to oversee building envelope projects.
