The platform of FairTradeWorks is very similar to that of a mortgage broker in that we go out and find lenders and providers for our clients. FairTradeWorks does the same thing for me as a consumer.
They handle and oversee all the details with the trades and it makes it so much simpler for me. I have one person to contact if there is an issue or any questions. One person, one answer and the work gets done.
It really makes it easier to have someone you can trust to manage the work. There’s definitely no question we’ll be calling FairTradeWorks again.
Trust is a huge part of my business. I’ve hated the fact that I had not been able to trust the construction industry. So when I met the FairTradeWorks Team, it felt right.
Their systems for efficiency and fair pricing made sense. The fact that a third party Advisor is assigned to each client, that’s like having a best friend in the business protecting you.
I believe that FairTradeWorks is going to change the way the construction industry operates.
I had been sitting on doing some renovations on my condo for quite a few years, because it seemed a bit daunting. I’ve done a few projects with the condo in the past, but it hasn’t been easy because I really didn’t know where to start.
My Advisor was awesome. He was great. I trust him completely. He made the process super easy. My Advisor made sure my budget was met and the timeline I wanted to work with was met. I wish that I didn’t wait so long to get this done.
In my profession as a Registered Interior Designer, I frequently am in the position to propose the use of one general contracting firm or another to execute, or quote, on plans (on the drawing board) for a client.
Often clients have had little experience with either the design or construction process, and guiding them through the steps to a successful completion of a project is what I always strive to deliver.
Working with one of their highly skilled Project Managers, (along with the support staff behind them in the offices of FairTradeWorks), means a comprehensive estimate of the cost of completion of a project, and entering into a such a project with “eyes wide open”. Once the project begins, the connection with that PM is ongoing, both for myself, as well as keeping the client fully informed along the way, right up to the successful completion of the project.
Thank you FairTradeWorks for a job well done. I was hopeful after some previous bad experience with a dishonest contractor, that working with FairTradeWorks would be a good solution for my project and was not disappointed.
I worked with an Advisor who took care of the project and kept me in the loop all the way through the job. This Advisor and his crew were all professional, did a good job and came in on budget.
This was such a positive experience. I have used FairTradeWorks for another project and was equally pleased. I have no hesitation recommending FairTradeWorks to family, friends or anyone who wants a good job at a fair price—such a welcome sigh of relief for anyone requiring a construction/renovation team to be on their side.
We want our members to experience the same design all over the world. So that makes my job very difficult. I’m glad FairTradeWorks helped me put this together. There’s a whole team behind the Advisor. You definitely need to find FairTradeWorks.
We wanted to do a complete renovation to a two bedroom condo prior to moving in and although I was a Construction Project Manager in the retail sector I was looking for a company to manage the job utilizing their own trades. After researching several companies we chose FairTradeworks based on previous customer testimonials. And we were not disappointed.
From our first meeting with our Advisor, we were impressed by his professional attitude and knowledge. As with most renovations there were several changes from our original scope of work but he was able to make suggestions that ended up keeping costs to a minimum.
We can also not say enough about our dealings with the other company employees we dealt with including project manager and client care representative.
We have no hesitation in recommending FairTradeworks for any project, large or small.
The relationship with my Advisor was huge. It gave me the peace of mind knowing that everything is in good hands. Trying to do this on my own would have been impossible.
Because this is a franchise, we were strict in terms of the look and feel of the fitness facility. They provided a list of products to be used, and one thing that FairTradeWorks did was take that list and source that out locally. We would go back to head office to get that approved. It worked out very well that way.
It’s been a fantastic experience working with FairTradeWorks. I will use FairTradeWorks again in my future projects and will definitely recommend this company to family and friends.
Kian, our Advisor, was very professional. From the beginning, we said we wanted to be involved throughout the process. Kian let us do this.
We’re also grateful that he didn’t hesitate to express his opinion on the paint colors we originally picked. The condo is now listed for sale.
The quality of work done by the trades, as well as the communication and trade management of our Advisor, Designer, and Project Manager were excellent. They are terrific people. They did an excellent job! We will 100% use FairTradeWorks again.
Finning recently engaged with FairTradeWorks to complete a renovation at our new Digital office space in Gastown in September 2016. The contractors and PM of FairTradeWorks were knowledgeable, creative and supportive throughout the entire project including when a contractor we were working with had their own ideas and became a bit of a problem to work with. FairTradeWorks jumped in and immediately handled the situation professionally and proactively and were a great support to us as the client. We were particularly impressed with Nav Chauhan who was the lead project manager, who was a pleasure to work with from start to finish and was always reliable for a quick question or progress update. Nav jumped into the project head first and was able to meet our high demands and standards. The contractors were also polite and respectful at times when working during business hours and this helped us meet our tight timeline to finish the renovation so quickly. We are very happy and proud of our commercial space in Gastown after the renovation and it will be hard to leave when we outgrow the space.
We were extremely pleased with our experience with FairTradeWorks. The refreshing aspect of having all the trades show up when scheduled always gave us a happy glow. The always available communication with our Advisor and all the other staff made the process painless and pleasant. We have recommended FairTradeWorks to many people and won’t hesitate to continue that practice. Thanks very much!
