Victorian House renovation "Downtown Toronto'

We wanted to renovate the interior and exterior of our old Victorian property in Downtown Toronto. This was a challenging endeavour that was a major concern for us both structurally and financially. The plan was to demolish and rebuild the full interior, correct/fix the supporting beams from basement to ensure proper structure stability, and do the underpinning of the lower level as the ceiling was too short. We wanted to change all the windows and open a few large sliding doors on the main floor and second level. Insulating the house was very important for us as well as updating all the mechanicals. We always wanted to buy an older house in a great neighbourhood and renovate the house the way we always envisioned. We wanted the house to look old/classic from outside and modern on the inside with some unique features. We always dreamed about having a large open concept modern kitchen and island as well as a freestanding tub with a large shower for our bathroom. We selected Regal Design + Build because of Arash's rigorous design and engineering background and education, as well as for their construction management skills. Arash, Ramin and their team exceeded our expectations and emerged as leaders of our project’s multi-layered team.
The challenges of our project that RDB and their team inherited were significant, and yet they were able to not only manage the project successfully and efficiently, but also with great success with regards to the design, permitting, and building a team of the best in their industries. This included obtaining a very challenging permit in just a few months. RDB became our trusted single point of contact by generating and developing inspired, rigorous and informed design, and superb project management. Traveling overseas also limited our availability for the project. Arash compensated for this by preparing methodically for our infrequent visits. His presentations were thorough and efficient, and at our request they even included other team members as well. Ramin also was so flexible with us as we made regular changes in the construction and design, and their commitment and attention to detail allowed us to do be able to make these changes seamlessly. There were various hurdles on our side, which were out of their control, that caused the project to pause a few weeks, but the pace at which RDB and their team were able to make progress was quite refreshing. RDB and their team were a pleasure to work with. They were professional, constructive, creative, solutions-oriented, hard working, and most importantly on budget. We give them our highest recommendation.
