We Thank You


Dear Bob; I just wanted to send you a note of thanks. You and your team were outstanding to deal with. The job was not only completed on time and under budget, but expertly completed to my complete satisfaction. Despite the challenge of working without original drawings, I appreciated that you always provided sensible solutions with multiple options each time and with no unnecessary delay. Fellow dealers warned me how much distraction the renovations would be to my daily commitments of running the business, but I must say it was not significant at all and that was entirely due to your professionalism. It was also comforting that each sub-trade had high praise for your skill and experience and they all told me they would be eager to work with you again, including those who no previous experience with you or the team. Nothing says more about leadership than leading by example and I was very impressed how you led by example and took on the 'dirty work'. Dina was very prompt and thorough, providing detailed and regular invoicing and another pleasure to deal with. Thank you very much for an excellent job and I hope you will be available to take on the next projects, I wouldn't think of anyone else. Yours sincerely, JIM CARSON - PRESIDENT, Blackstock Ford Lincoln & Bad Dog Mods


Robert was the construction manager at our site. He was friendly, knowledgeable, resourceful and flexible. He attended evening meetings with the 'team' and was thoughtful with his input. Even now after 5 years, we feel comfortable calling Robert if we have questions. He was and is a pleasure to work with. And, we LOVE our building!!

We have worked with Robert on two projects, the Rotary Park Skateboard Park and the Island Lake North Trail Pavilion. Both projects were completed on time and on budget. Both are community facilities achieved by working with Robert to explore options and details for the best value engineering and design. Working as the Construction Manager for both projects, Robert assisted from the initial design stages through pricing, construction and completion to ensure success. We would have no hesitation in recommending Robert for future projects of this nature. THE ROTARY CLUB OF ORANGEVILLE

Town of Orangeville, THEATRE ORANGEVILLE

On behalf of the Town of Orangeville, Theatre Orangeville undertook a major renovation of the Orangeville Town Hall Opera House in the summer of 2013. The challenge was to complete the project within very narrow time-lines as there were only eight weeks between the end of one Theatre Orangeville season and the beginning of the next season. Robert Preston was retained well in advance of the start date in the project planning stages so as to facilitate the proposed design and detailing. He also assisted in identifying and pre-ordering all long -term delivery items and schedules. Demolition started on day one of the project and was completed swiftly yet with exacting standards of quality of workmanship. Construction proceeded seamlessly to completion, both on budget and ahead of schedule! All work had to be coordinated to avoid any disruptive noise interference as the Town Offices and Town Council Chambers were located immediately below the Opera House facility. Bob facilitated these efforts admirably while working out all details directly with the Building Department and Town Staff to ensure minimal disruption. Robert Preston and his crew of dedicated craftsmen were more than up to the inevitable creative challenges that were encountered on the project and delivered an excellent facility that continues to delight audiences every time they enter the theatre. We at Theatre Orangeville look forward to working with Robert Preston on future projects and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him for any project of a similar nature.
