Were a wonderful team to work with and made this small yet complicated project come together with ease
Sarah Thom, Project Manager – Vancouver Coastal Health Authority
The project is very complex. It involves renovating the entire Emergency Department in four (4) construction phases and at the same time, maintaining full operation of all Emergency Services. Specifically, when performing construction work in patient areas, the superintendent ensured that the work is completed as efficiently as possible with minimal disruption to patients and staff. He has been very proactive in resolving construction issues and maintaining the construction schedule.
Ted Feenstra, MAIBC MAAA – Feenstra Architecture Inc.
I would recommend that PAX be given strong consideration for the role of general contractor on your project. PAX displayed a level of professionalism that played a significant role in the success of the projects. My experience with PAX as project manager for both CEI projects was that PAX were cooperative team players, facilitated a high level of workmanship, were effective coordinators of their subtrades, submitted fair and reasonable change order pricing and progress claims, and finally were pro-active in offering input that helped to achieve high project standards.
Mark Hentze, Associate – CEI Architecture Planning Interiors
It was imperative that these renovations be completed over the Thanksgiving weekend. The renovations included everything from demolition to reconstruction of steel stud walls, new mechanical and electrical systems for a new bio-safety hood and all finishes from flooring, walls, ceiling, and finished millwork. It was the best teamwork I have ever seen in 25 years of practice.
William Locking, MAIBC MAAA MRAIC – CEI Architecture Planning Interiors
I want to tell you how much we have all appreciated the work done by your company, and in particular, your foreman, Randy Brauer… not only that the work is done competently and professionally, but that it has also been done in a cooperative and respectful manner. We are also very pleased with the quality of the work, and with Randy’s attention to detail and concern that even minor issues be addressed appropriately and in a timely manner. On behalf of all of us at Parkholm, thank you for making a potentially difficult situation much more enjoyable and satisfying that we had expected!
Virginia O’Brien, M.S.W. Manager – Parkholm Lodge
The project which is now nearing completion has been wroth with a host of problems which have resulted in numerous and untimely design changes to the project. While the process has been extremely trying for all parties, we have found PAX Construction to be a stabilizing factor who has provided the owner with a thoughtful and balanced approach relative to maintaining the intended quality of the project, delivering the project on time and offering cost implication for the consultants’ consideration and the owner’s decision. PAX has undoubtedly made a commitment to satisfying the owner’s (at times conflicting) wishes and to complete the project on schedule. They have dedicated the required resources to accomplish this goal and have demonstrated the patience to wade through the owner’s intentions to achieve clarity. PAX has provided the administrative and management skills to identify and resolve key issues with the design. They have been firm and pro-active in their demands to resolve design issues in a timely manner at a time when apathy and passivity would have been a choice.
Jacques Beaudreault, MAIBC MRAIC CP, Director of Architectural Services – David Nairne & Associates Ltd.
We found Peter Brauer and his team to be excellent to work with. Buildings were brought in on time and below cost. Their input into the planning process enabled us to reduce costs without hurting quality.
Ray Sutton, Principal – Pacific Academy
Our client was very pleased with the manner in which the work progressed, the minimal disruption that occurred to his operations, and the cooperation that he received from your site personnel.
Peter J. Acton, P.Eng. Manager – Westmar Consultants Inc.
I have worked with PAX Construction Ltd. on a variety of projects over the years and have been thoroughly impressed with the quality of construction and attention to detail that they bring to a project. The administrative staff and crew on site work together to produce quality construction through effective communication concerning scheduling, costing, and alternative approaches to building details. All communication is thorough, well documented and clear.
Russell Acton, MAIBC MRAIC – Acton Ostry Architects Inc.
I would like to commend PAX Construction and their staff employed on this project for their professionalism. At all times, work crews were pleasant and courteous to the staff and to the public they came in contact with.
W.E. Cotterall, Manager of Administrative Services – City of Surrey
I would like to thank you for the excellent service that you provided. Known to all that the schedule was aggressive, your cooperation was essential to us meeting our target completion date. Your attitude on the job was always most pleasant and your workmanship of quality. In meeting the challenges of the schedule you were prompt in your response to changes, and reasonable in your cost for additional work.
