OUR REVIEWS

“The South Park Design Build team were wonderful through every step of the project, from the first visit to completion. The budget was reasonable and realistic – no surprise or hidden costs. They were clear about the work plan, and once the trades were in Matt came by nearly daily – sometimes twice a day – to make sure everything on was on track, and it was. I’m delighted with the finished work, and I will happily go back to them for our next project.”
– Jessica Monk
“I heard through the industry that working with Eric at South Park was going to be TOP-NOTCH service and it couldn’t be MORE true!! At the first site visit, Eric listened to the client’s vision/concerns, walked through the process and within a week had a detailed proposal for construction! Eric and his team are well coordinated, present and respect the relationship of designer/client while also sharing their knowledge and expertise to create the best solutions for the home owner. I would (and do) recommend Eric and his team to anyone about to venture into a home renovation and look forward to working with South Park again and again!” - Charlie Coull (Design)

“We decided to use South Park Design Build for the renovation of our main and third floor after our designer shared their work with us. From the very beginning to the very end we were so impressed. Eric provided a detailed budget for us right from the beginning when the other companies we contacted provided figures that either had no details behind the numbers or numbers I knew were much too low so they could get the job. And the first budget he gave was quite accurate … Whenever a change order came up Eric always identified it immediately and we discussed options. The tradespeople he hired were top notch and he has worked with them all for a long time so he trusts them. They were always so respectful of our home and cleaned up every day.” - Kelly Weaver
“South Park is a first class operation. Their trades are reliable and coordinate their work extremely well. They made sure my home was built to my preferences.”
– Dr. Dana Colson
“South Park Design Build has been wonderful to work with over the past several years. Along with superb efficiency and meticulous organization, South Park Design Build pays tremendous attention to every detail, which is the core of every successful project. The team is very honest, collaborative and professional. Undoubtedly I recommend South Park Design Build to all my clients and friends.” - Ivana Mirkovic, IM Interior Design

“South Park builds at a very high level of finish and the workmanship is outstanding. We couldn’t be happier with the building process and the finished product. Everyone who sees our home has nothing but praise and we are proud to recommend Eric Adelman, Matthew Brooks and the entire team at South Park Design Build.” - Mark & Virginia Wells
“Thank you South Park for all of your work on our home. We have particularly appreciated the quality of workmanship, the respectfulness and responsiveness of your team, and the exceptional communications and management skills of Matt Brooks. Your team has been punctual, reliable and tidy and we have been impressed with their problem-solving ability on the fly. You have consistently set expectations well with regard to timelines and budget and Lois has done a great job of keeping us routinely informed and on top of all invoices. Altogether a great experience and we would recommend you to anyone who will listen.”
– Laura & Tom
“We gutted a 3500 sq ft house and renovated it top to bottom. Eric and team did the entire project for us and we are thrilled with the results. Yes, he has a great eye for design and a great “can-do” attitude. Yes, he is available, responsive, and has a very capable team (gotta love Roy) that is very detail oriented. But the best thing about working with Southpark is for when things go wrong. In any project there are always unexpected problems, and it is here that they are the best. A year later, we had a shower floor failure on the second floor and it was a big mess. The team got out to us right way, fixed the problem in a timely manner, and now you can’t even tellthere was an issue. This is the reason they get our highest recommendation.” - Jason Offet and Crystal Pallister

“We were very please with the results of our South Park renovation. Eric and his crew were professional at every stage of the process, were open and completely honest about costs and timing and provided a consistently high level o service. There was excellent coordination between south park and our architect and designer, and our project was completed in a timely manner. As an added bonus, our neighbours found the south park drew tidy and polite. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend south park or use the company again ourselves.” - Deb & David Potter

“Eric and his company did an extensive renovation at our home on May Square in the spring and summer of 2004. Although the project was a difficult one, Eric and his crew made it seem straightforward and simple. Eric was always on time for meetings, was always available to hear out questions and concerns and he did exactly what he promised to do. We had heard many horror stories from friends about contractors not showing up, not doing the work that they said they would do and about unexpected, escalating costs after the initial construction contract was signed. This was not our experience with Eric. Both my wife and I recommend Eric and South Park to anyone for a renovation / reconstruction project.” - James E. Dunn

“Eric has a wonderful eye for design. His co-ordination with our architect was extraordinary; the design concept was conceived with extreme efficiency and no fuss. We could easily have been required to engage in consideration of a thousand decisions in a project of this magnitude; he is so good, we were probably only involved in a couple of hundred. On top of everything else, Eric is a very fine and refined person. he exhibited a superb manner in dealing with us as clients and his crews as colleagues. We could give Eric and South Park the highest imaginable recommendation for a sophisticated design and construction in this market segment.” - Geoffrey and Susan Dyer

“We have had several renovations done over the years and have run the gamut of workmanship and professionalism along the way. Eric and his team are at the very top. His attention to detail from the beginning to the end of our project was really remarkable. He would, many times, see little omissions of flaws that we didn’t see and attend to them immediately. Nothing was too trivial and everything was done quickly and efficiently. He is great at solving problems big and small, as are his key workers, especially Rob, who was the foreman of our job. Both Eric and Roy seem to have an unending supply of patience as far as the client is concerned. We are extremely pleased with the results. This team has turned a dowdy old 100 year old semi into a pretty cool looking place. We love it!” - Mary and Jim Fisher
I have worked with South Park on a few projects over the last few years. They are always a great team to work with. Eric has a good focus on people, money and ideas and often has great suggestions to help stay on budget without compromising quality and looks. They are also great with timing and completed our recent project exactly when promised. I would highly recommend this team and look forward to working with them again!

"As a supplier we have a first hand perspective as to who really knows their stuff and I personally tell all homeowners that it is critical to hire a builder that is not only knowledgeable in all aspects of construction, but is solid and honest in their business practices. Working with South Park is a pleasure. They know their stuff, they always put out a great product and their clients are great to deal with. We take pride in all of the projects that we have been involved in, some very large and some small... all receive the same attention. Eric and his staff are the right fit for anyone who understands and appreciates quality and professionalism. You won't find anyone that is more honest." - Nelson Pereira

"It would difficult to find a more honest, transparent, hard-working, courteous and pleasant project manager than Matt Brooks of South Park Design and Build. Renovations are stressful and unpleasant. Matt and Eric navigated the project in a way that made us feel we were in good hands the whole way through. Extra costs or unforeseen problems were broken down thoroughly. Any time there was a concern Matt would have it taken care of ASAP, even on weekends or after hours. In fact, there was one issue that had to be addressed that would clearly cost them time and money to complete. He didn't flinch, and in fact encouraged the change even though it put his schedule back a week. Top notch service. We'd come back." - Robert Carli
South Park did a fantastic job on our renovation. They understood our budget restrictions and our appetite for the nicer things...a tough balance, but they did it! The staff, contractors and designers were real people, very easy to get along with.
– Phil Stephens
"We hired South Park this summer to renovate our 2 bathrooms , replace a glass curtain wall and fix a weird floor plan. Matt and Eric were great to work with - courteous and prompt with any inquiries. The trades they hired were top notch. We were away for two weeks during the renovation and felt like our house was in safe hands. Our project was completed on time and budget - rare for any Reno. Will definitely use them in the future." - Linh Wright

"We renovated a challenging ravine house from the 1950's. It had had several additions and renovations over time. Together with Southpark we converted it into a lovely family home which we are just thrilled with today. We had wonderful trades and have been really happy with all the follow up that Matt Brooks and team have provided. It was not an easy project, and we worked until we achieved our vision in the end." - felesky

"I hired South Park Design to renovate my kitchen in my own loft and some of my rental properties. They were absolutely amazing, professional and on point. I loved the design that they chose for my space and I was able to get exactly what I wanted within budget. The staff at South Park were extremely efficient and friendly. I own many properties in the city and will from now on only work with South Park for my renovations. Their high quality work is quite admirable. I highly suggest this company to other home owners." - josenieves
