Rocco knew what to do for the general/detail plans and was quick to respond to the City reviewing staff with the modifications necessary to allow them to issue a permit.
I would deal with Rocco/Architalcan to obtain a permit again without hesitation
Thank you Dana! Appreciate it
I have heard many a frustrating story from friends and neighbours about home renovations and building permits. With Rocco - you avoid any and all trouble or angst!! Rocco helped me to design my basement renovations. He prepared all structural, underpinning and design drawings and took care of all the city applications and permits.
The entire process was complete within 3 weeks of engaging Rocco!
He understands your needs and creates initial designs that meet them. He is quick and responsive to incorporate any tweaks or changes in the drawings. I cannot say enough amazing things about Rocco! He is a pleasure to work with. He is personable, professional, responsive, efficient and he gets things done in record time!
Happy New year!!!! It was a pleasure working with you!
I would highly recommend this company. Rocco and his team helped me design a lovely two-storey addition complete with peaked ceilings and exposed beams. The team was thorough, efficient, affordable and fast! I felt confident that I was in good hands every step of the way. Thanks Architalcan- until next time!
I worked with Rocco at Architalcan Design to design and apply for a permit with the city of Toronto to move our staircase. Rocco was extremely responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. He always responded right away, even responding to my emails at 10PM and weekends, when I would have questions or sent him updates. He was one of a few structural engineers that I called and I instantly felt that he was the best fit (at a very reasonable price).
Due to some concerns about the scope of the renovations from our contractors (HVAC, water lines etc.), Rocco made multiple updates to the drawings and charged very fairly for the updates. He was patient and listened until the drawings were exactly what we wanted and our contractors had no more concerns.
The process of applying for the permit was a breeze, since Rocco took care of the communication with the City and application process. Even with COVID, we received approval from the city within a week.
I would highly recommend Rocco and Architalcan Design to anyone looking to do major renovations and structural changes to their house.
Thank you Christina! Very kind words of you...Very happy to serve clients like you!
I hired to Rocco to do drawings and get the permits for a proposed basement renovation. He came over to my home, did a thorough examination, and made a number of very useful suggestions that neither myself nor my contractor had considered.
The drawings were excellent and done quickly. The permits from the city came through quickly without the slightest problem.
Thank you Alex! Very happy to serve clients like you!
Basement apartments are our cup of Tea:)
I needed plans and a permit to extend my kitchen, remove a load bearing interior wall, remove 13' of exterior masonry wall and add a small addition.
Rocco at Architalcan came with his assistant and took a full set of measurements which enabled him to draw up a complete set of plans for the house as it is now and for the proposed changes. Rocco's advice on possible layouts and developing a practical floor plan was more than helpful. He has the ability too see instantly what will and what will not work.
Plans were drawn up, modified as required and submitted to the building department in a very short time period. Phone calls and emails are always answered promptly.
I would highly recommend Rocco.
Thank you so much for your review! I love my job and love helping home owners to achieve their goals and desired design:)
I first had contact with Rocco from Architalcan Design in 2010 for a house I had purchased and was renovating in downtown Toronto. After the initial call I met up with Rocco at the house and discussed the kind of renovation I had in mind and then Rocco took measurements of the house. Within a couple of days Rocco emailed me some draft drawings for the house. Afterwards I discussed with Rocco some changes I wanted and practically in no time he sent me revised drawings and then he proceeded to finalize the plans to submit to the City. Withing a day or 2 from submission to the city my permit was ready.
In late 2019, I purchased another property and called Rocco again. After 10 years he remembered me as it was just yesterday that we had spoken last. Again we met at the property and within a few days the drawings were ready and within a another couple of days my permit was ready from the City.
Since we were doing the project during Covid and the City inspectors were not coming to the site regularly, I asked Rocco to do an inspection and write a report to give to City for Structural work..
Again Rocco came right to mu house and within a day emailed me the reports that I required.
In the 2 projects I worked with Rocco, I was very satisfied for his good ideas , his efficiency and reasonable fee. I would highly recommend Rocco for any projects requiring architectural services.
Thank you Peter! Always happy to help!
Rocco's expertise made it easy to obtain a building permit with the City of Toronto. He is well aware of the requirements and expectations. Throughout the process he listened to the many last minute design changes that were done which resulted in obtaining a building permit for a house exactly as expected.
Thank you very much for the review!, always glad to help and getting the job done!
Rocco helps us with drawings and permits for our interior renovation about 4 years ago and everything are ok even today. He is the best person you can find for drawings and permits on top of his vast knowledge about updated building codes. I highly recommend him and will definitely use his service again in the future.
Thank you so much for this lovely review, I am really happy to hear back from my clients and it makes me want to do more!
