Support and Consultation during construction

Our project required complete dig-up of our house. Pezhman and Arvin did a site visit for the project and explained to us exactly what needs to be done including timelines. Their engineer design and drawings were meticulous; the city issued permits without any problems.
During the construction we had many questions and they were available at all times to provide consultation. We highly recommend Rigid Frames. Thank you both for all your recommendations and hard work.

Architectural and Structural permit drawings

This is the second time I have hired RigidFrameses for my renovation project.

This renovation was to completely demolish the inside of a 100 year old townhouse and remove all load bearing walls.

Rigidframeses team helped with interior design and structural engineering drawings. They submitted applications and obtained required permits in an efficient timeline.

They are highly knowledgeable in all aspects of construction and provided prompt assistance and advice at any time I needed.

Thank you Pezhman, Arvin, Emeline and team.

Structural Design

I worked with Pezhman and Arvin for the structural design of a complicated home renovation project. They are an experienced, capable pair with excellent customer service. I would recommend working with them.

Basement drawing

I found this company on the internet. The team of staff is very friendly and easy to approach. Quality and fast services. They came twice to measure the basement and suggested the most appropriate ways of the renovation.

House Renovation

I am very happy with the services provided by Rigid Frame. After my first inquiry call, they came the next day to evaluate my house, determine what was required and outline the next steps. They completed the structural drawings, submitted the permit application to the City and I received a permit within three days. We are moving on to the building/renovation phase now and I couldn't be more pleased with their level of professionalism and ease of communication. I highly recommend them.

Architectural and Structural Permit Drawings For Home Interior Reno

We hired Rigid Frame Structural to assess a sagging structural beam from a previous kitchen renovation. Pezhman and Arvin were able to use construction photos and floor plans from our kitchen renovation to minimize opening up walls and further disruption during their site visit.
They prepared architectural and structural permit drawings and took care of the permit submissions for us. Even though the process started before the Christmas holidays, we received our permit within 2 months of their initial site visit.
We're very impressed with their professionalism and responsiveness. Both Pezhman and Arvin were a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend their services.

Thank you very much Jennifer for the 10 star review! We really appreciate. Applying for permits during the holiday season especially in the City of Mississauga takes longer. Their application process compare to other cities like Toronto is more time consuming even though we completed the drawings and submitted in less than 2 weeks. However, we are happy that the permit is in your possession and the construction can start. We appreciate all your patience throughout the process.

Engineering drawings for permit

I'm doing a dining room/family room/kitchen renovation, and wanted a large opening in an existing masonry wall to unify the space. Pezhman, Arvin and team did the architectural and structural permit drawings for me. They did a great job, and were always very quick to respond to my questions

Open Concept Living

We hired Pezhman and Arvin, to provide structural engineering services in creating a open concept Living room/ Kitchen in our existing home, as renos typically go there are always surprises, and I can't say enough about how patient and educational the process was with Rigid Frame. Both Arvin and Pezhman, worked with our designer to achieve our original plan, as some of the bearing points for the structural work had to be changed due to what was behind the walls once we began demo. I was extremely impressed with their ability to adapt to situations and their solution driven attitude. They are an asset to any renovation.

Permit-Ready Drawings

Previous owner did some renovations on the home. All of the work was done without permits and did not consider the appropriate loads and resulting force distribution caused by removing interior walls.
We hired Arvin and Pezhman to provide permit-ready drawings to submit to the city and to shape our overall scope for the renovations.
Arvin and Pezhman came for a site visit, and took all the necessary measurements in order to create their drawings. We discussed possible solutions and decided on what would be an appropriate design. We settled on two single span beams (one flush mounted on the main floor and one dropped in the basement) to keep the open concept aesthetic. It was deemed to have comparable costs as to having multiple beams and footings added in the basement.
I'm not the easiest customer, as I am particular, and like things done properly. I had to change the scope of drawings part way through. Arvin, Pezhman and Emiline were very professional and accommodating to most of my requests. Whenever I had a question they would answer thoroughly and when I didn't understand something we would make sure that the issue was clarified.
When the time came to submit the drawings for permits, the city official had some questions with some particular aspects of the design. Arvin was able to discuss the issue with the official and together we decided on an acceptable path forward to address the city's concern.
When all is said and done, Arvin and Pehzman listened to my concerns, came up with appropriate solutions and were very professional. You can trust them to be thorough and provide excellent quality work.

Basement Underpinning Drawings

We were referred to Arvin and his team by our underpinning contractor, to get engineering reports and drawings for our basement project. Arvin, Pezhman and Emeline were a pleasure to work with throughout the process. They answered all our questions and made sure we got what we needed to complete our project providing us with draft drawings for review before the final drawings were stamped. They also helped us with the permitting process with the city ensuring all the necessary forms were submitted properly. My wife and I wouldn't think twice about recommending them.
