“It was essential for Lakeside Design & Build to perform a thorough investigation as the analysis was used as professional evidence for the purpose of issuing an Emergency Order under section 15 of the Building Code Act. I highly recommend Lakeside Design & Build to provide professional Services for Clients in the Muskoka area.”

“As the Property Manager for the Deerhurst Resort, I have worked closely with James Pitropov and his staff at Lakeside Design & Build for several years on various Deerhurst projects. The staff at Lakeside Design & Build has provided detailed, personal client-oriented service with creative flair and good construction documentation and costing. Lakeside Design & Build has worked closely with me to develop the following projects: Deerhurst Lodge and Meeting Rooms; ESPN Sports Pavilion; Deerhurst Spa Renovation; and Deerhurst Sports Villas. On these projects, Lakeside Design & Build met with me at my office and provided me with 3D design visualizations, sourced and priced alternatives, made changes as I requested, worked with me and Deerhurst’s consultants, prepared workings drawings and performed General Review during construction. The 3D visualization has helped us engage in an interactive design process that has included Deerhurst staff, the general contractor, our interior designer, the staff at Lakeside Design & Build and James himself. Lakeside Design & Build will be my Consultant on projects that require attention to design, detail and high quality presentations.”
