Rigid Frames Structural Engineer Drawings

I found Rigid Frames via their excellent reviews on HomeStars and was delighted by their impeccable service.

Pezhman and Arvin produced structural drawings for the removal of a load bearing wall separating the kitchen and living areas in our newly purchased, semi-detached home. They also submitted and managed our building permit application with the city.

From the beginning, Pezhman was extremely professional, efficient and friendly. He met all of the agreed deadlines, and even exceeded our expectations when the building permit was obtained in record time.

Even when faced with challenges -- such as a site visit where they had half the normal time to complete their measurements, or when a concern arose with our contractor -- Rigid Frames handled each with care and diligence.

Not to mention their fees are reasonable and fair.

I would highly recommend Rigid Frames and would not hesitate to work with them again in the future.

Apartment Building Fire Escape

After a few unsuccessful searches to find a structural engineer to design a new fire escape for my apartment building I came across Rigid Frame. Arvin and Pehzman met me at the site to discuss and understand the requirements of the job. I was initially concerned when I didn't hear back from anyone for a couple of weeks after providing a deposit, but later learned that was due to vacation time. When the project got rolling again, I was pleased with the communication and how Arvin helped in me getting the building permit from the Town. Arvin promptly made the necessary additions to the drawing as required by the Town and we received the building permit. I can say it was smooth sailing after this, as Arvin provided a quote for the actual construction and the approximate start/end time. When we agreed go with Rigid Frame for the construction everything was done within the required time frame and to the satisfaction of the Town. I would definitely recommend Rigid Frame and will most likely use them in the future for any major project.

Hi Harp. Thank you very much for this great review. Your patience played a big part of the success of this project (design and construction). We tried our best to keep our clients well informed every little step of the way (for some reason small cracks happen). We appreciate your recognition that we were able to recover and complete the project as planned. This review is very important to us and we will use this to further improve our customer service.

Load Bearing Wall Removal

Arvin and Pezhman helped us with replacing a load bearing wall in our kitchen with a Steel Beam, throughout the process they were responsive and extremely helpful when we had questions, and quickly solved any issues that arose. I would definitely recommend Rigid Frame.

Hi Mr.&Ms. Gristom!

Thank you very much for this awesome review. Even though we would like to take the entire credit for the success of the project starting from the permit drawings up to construction, 50% of the credit should go to both of you. Especially, when we are erecting the steel beam and all the weldings on site, you are very patient and very accommodating. We know that you will enjoy the newly open space in your home. All the best to both of you in years to come.

Underpinning & Addition creation

We are new home owners taking on a large renovation for the first time. We made a great decision to work with Pezhman and Arvin to get our plans done. They were informative, provided professional advice and did what they could to help us to save money. We would highly recommend this company as it was a pleasure working with them.

Our drawings are complete and now we are looking at working with their sister company to help us with the renovations as well.

Thanks Guys!

Structural engineers

This review is long overdue. This is the second time I have been fortunate enough to do business with Arvin and Pezhman at Rigid Frame. The pictures are from a project where they were responsible for making sure that the open concept house was as sturdy as it was beautiful. We added a 25-30 foot two story extension to the back of a house in downtown Toronto. You don't want to get into a big and expensive renovation without making sure that the structure will be sturdy and safe during the renovation and for years to come. Whenever I needed their input, they took the time out of their busy day to answer any questions that I had. I'm very happy with the service that they provide.

Thanks guys!

Foundation restructure

Arvin and Pezhman tackled a very tricky project in designing the restructure of our almost hundred year old foundation, as well as a substantial (3 level) addition to the back of our home. They approached the project with an honest and straight forward approach, and a strong commitment to meeting our needs while balancing that with the limitations of the project. We were most impressed with how genuinely earnest they were in helping us literally build our dream home. We would recommend Rigid Frame Structural Engineers to anyone looking for professionals who provide quality work with personable service!

FIRE DAMAGED RESTORATION AND REPAIR

Our neighbour's house fire crossed over into our house. It burnt over 50 percent of our building.

In order to repair the damage caused by the fire and water we had to produce architectural and structural drawing by professional engineers . After meeting several engineers and architects, we decided to go with Arvin and Pezhman of Rigid Frame Structural Engineers Inc.

Both Arvin and Pezhman came out to the damaged property to assess the condition of the building and prepared a solution to repair and reconstruct the building. We were impressed with the way they dealt with the repair issues and gave us confidence not only in their drawings; they went beyond, impressing us with their guidance throughout the process of repair and reconstruction. Their service and consultation covered: the full Architectural and Engineering drawings; HVAC and plumbing; and most importantly, obtaining the necessary permits from the city of Toronto. Both Arvin and Pezhman always took the time to provide us with the answer when any question arose during the construction work.

We are very satisfied with their services and we will not hesitate to recommend Arvin and Pezhman to anyone who requires their Architectural and Engineering skills provided with a friendly manner.

Do not hesitate to contact us should you have any question related to the services Arvin and Pezhman has provided us
