Interior Remodeling

We hired Rigid Frame to remodel our kitchen that required permit and expertise of a structural engineer and an architect. Pezhman with his expertise in both areas helped us to design and remodel the kitchen completely (satisfying all the inspections with no issues).

Pezhman and his team are very knowledgeable and extremely patient in explaining the detail of the work. He communicates well and deals with problems methodically. He gave us very valuable technical information on various stages of the project. His estimates are reasonable and honest. I would recommend him and his company with no hesitation.

Multiple renovation projects

Rigid Frame has been my go to structural engineers for 15 years. They are fast, reliable and helpful. They have helped me with small renovation projects to large, complicated, multi-consultant projects. As well as structural, their network of electrical, mechanical, HVAC engineers makes them a one-stop shop for all my building permits. Whether it’s a residential project or a commercial project they are professional, accurate and a pleasure to work with.

Permit drawings for two storey new build custom house with secondary unit:

We bought a house last summer and would like to build a custom house and add a secondary unit in the basement. We hired the team of Rigid Frame because of their excellent reputation in homestars and the entire team did a great work for us. All the communications are very seamless and they presented us with exceptional floor plans and exterior designs. They did many 3D renderings so we can visualized the design. They walk us in every step of the permit process with the city. Arvin and Pezhman are very professional and are both educated in the field of architectural and engineering. They prepared everything that are need to get the permit to the city. We will hire Rigid Frame for the construction stage because we want our dream house to be built and managed by professional engineers. We recommend the team of Rigid Frame to everyone looking to build their custom dream house. Keep up the good job Rigid Frame!

Design and Construction of Rear Addition

We own a 100 year old small home with an existing rear kitchen addition that had significant structural problems. We were not sure what we needed or where to start so we had a few companies come out and give us an idea of what our options were. From the first time we met with Pezhman and Arvin I had a sense that they were honest, genuine professionals who knew there stuff and after working with them for almost 10 months I still feel that way today. They were willing to talk to us about different options within our budget and took the time to go through all the details so we had a complete picture of what we were dealing with. In the end we decided to tear down the existing addition and rebuild it with a new bedroom above. The crew at rigid frame were great to deal with during the preparation of our permit drawings. They were responsive, willing to incorporate changes, and in the end we had a building permit issued very quickly. Being an engineer myself I know there are many different ways for projects like this to go wrong, but to date this company has been professional, accommodating and has given us realistic expectations at each step of the process.

Second Floor Addition

This was my second time to hire Rigid Frame. We hired Rigid Frame spring of this year. This time around we need permit drawings so we can add a third bedroom on top of our existing garage. As always, Arvin and Pezhman are spot-on to their design and we received our permit drawings within 2 weeks of submitting the application. The coordination with Arvin is seamless. He is always available and made me feel that I’m their only client. I highly recommend the team of Rigid Frame for all your renovation needs. FYI: I hired Rigid Frame Builders, their sister company, to construct our bedroom addition.

Construction of 2 storey window wall

I am so glad I hired this company! After providing us with structural engineering drawings to get a building permit to replace our wall of windows at the back of our house, I decided to hire Rigid Frame to do the construction, which included the installation of steel beams & posts, laying foundations, interior drywall, roofing, electrical work, decking and siding. It was the best decision I could have made. The expertise of this company was exactly what I needed for a project that turned out to be way more complex than I had anticipated. Pezhman and Arvin provided excellent advice regarding the project, and the main builder, Ejay, was extremely hard-working and multi-talented. I revised various aspects of the design as we went along, and Pezhman and his team responded to all the changes with enthusiasm and support. They went the extra mile every time. They were extremely thorough, making sure everything was done RIGHT. The end result is a stunning wall of windows with a walk-out to the back yard. We are thrilled with it and we are so appreciative of all the effort that Rigid Frame put in. They made me feel like I was their only client, but I know they were keeping other clients happy too at the same time. Pezhman, Arvin & Ejay were a pleasure to work with, so very friendly and responsive. I highly recommend them for any building project, no matter how complex.

Architectural and Structural permit drawings

I hired Rigid Frame when I realized that the scope of our building project required the expertise of a structural engineer. Pezhman and Arvin provided me with their knowledgeable and responsible advice right from the start. I was delighted with the drawings that they prepared and these drawings were used to successfully obtain a building permit. Rigid Frame co-ordinated everything regarding the building permit, submitting the documentation, meeting with the inspector and ensuring the final approvals. Pezhman and Arvin are also extremely friendly, responsive and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend their services.

Major renovation and second story addition

Pezhman is a self-motivated team member and a pleasure to work with. He demonstrates superior technical ability and produces work of exceptional quality. Pezhman takes the time to fully understand the scope of projects and displays keen attention to detail. Pezhman and his team were able to start and finish the design, architectural and structural drawings of our renovation/addition of a second story. Zoning and permits were handled without hiccups thanks to there professionalism. My wife and I are extremely excited and happy with the final results.

full house structural and architechtural design

We purchased a 90+yro house which needed a full house renovation including basement underpinning. Pezhman and his team (Arvin and Emeline) did a great job from the very start and carefully listened to our needs and desires and guided us with what made sense. Pezhman is very nice and PATIENT and technically knowledgeable which we are very grateful for that because in this business it's very hard to find such people (talking from my personal experience so far!)

Our underpinning drawings got accepted in 2 weeks so we could start the job on time. The rest of our drawings got delayed due to some city complications which were not the Rigid Frames fault, however their superb support was very heartwarming during such stressful time :)

We are very happy with our decision and will definitely recommend them to anyone who's seeking for the best support and results.

Interior Walls Removal

Amazing company to work with. Everything was as promised and on time. They started on the scheduled day and finished before the promised date. I wish there are more companies managed like this to do business with. Thank you Arvin & Pezhman. Highly recommended!
