Architectural design on basement & rear extension

It was a pleasure working with Ben on our rear addition, and basement extension. He took care of everything from drawing, committee and permits.
Ben was very patient as we did changed our drawings a couple of times due to us being indecisive and the current economy.
He is very dedicated to his work, answered all our questions promptly, and works at a very quick pace.
Thank you Ben :)

My pleasure. When we started, the scope was complete second floor reno with new roof and rear two storey addition with 4 feet overhang on the entire side of the house. Furtunately, with our experience in the construction budget, we manage to help you make a decision which of course was to reduce the scope. Glad that you liked the design and the work. The rear addition is designed and speced in a manner to accomodate the rear second floor addition some time in future. Our work is not finished as we will help you with answering your questions during the construction. B well and keep us on top of your mind!

Drawings and permits for East York Bungalow top up with large rear and side extension

We had the pleasure of working with Ben to design our family's custom home in East York, and the experience was nothing short of outstanding. From the initial consultation to dealing with unexpected issues, to receiving the final approval permits, Ben demonstrated unparalleled expertise, creativity, and efficiency.

Ben not only listened attentively to our family's needs and preferences but also translated them into a masterpiece that exceeded our expectations, while reducing construction cost by 10% compared to our previous architects drawings. It was evident that Ben not only possesses a deep understanding of architectural principles but also has a keen ability to integrate practical functionality with aesthetic brilliance and construction cost in mind.

One of the most impressive aspects of working with Ben was the speed at which the project was executed without compromising on quality. From the conceptualization phase to managing unforeseen issues, to accommodating our custom changes and obtaining necessary approvals, the entire process was seamless and remarkably fast. Ben was able to get our permits about 4 times faster than our previous architect while reducing construction cost by 10%. It was a testament to Bens professionalism, organization, and dedication to delivering results.

Furthermore, Ben demonstrated an exceptional ability to navigate through the complexities of permits and approvals, ensuring that all necessary paperwork was in place. This not only saved us time but also provided us with the peace of mind that our project was in capable hands.

In summary, I wholeheartedly recommend Ben to anyone seeking a skilled, reliable and responsive architect. Ben not only met but surpassed our expectations.

If you're looking for an architect who combines expertise, efficiency, and a genuine commitment to exceeding expectations, look no further than Ben.

I am speechless! What a detailed review. Thanks for your sharp eyes in seeing what we do and glad that you and your family will have a home that you always wanted. The permits got issued in the City with no questions asked. The construction will commence in January and I will be always available to you and your contractor with any questions about the drawings and any possible changes to speed up the process and lower the cost further down. B well.

Main Level, Basement Addition and Deck

I would 100 percent recommend working with Ben at BBA Architects!!! We had an excellent experience and our permits were issued way ahead of schedule!

We started our project with another architect, but were very disappointed that they weren't listening to our input and were unhappy with the proposed design.

Ben on the other hand was open to our vision, offered guidance that enabled us to create a design within our budget and save more money by avoiding the committee of adjustments.

When we were indecisive and unsure how to proceed Ben was patient and educated us about our options (i.e. things that could be altered once permits were issued vs. what could not). He responded promptly to our many questions and during construction was quick to work with our contractor on issues that arose.

We are very grateful to Ben for bringing our dream to life with professionalism, integrity and care! Thank you, Ben!

Thanks Jane for the kind words. Glad that all worked out fine. Considering the budget since the day one to make a project viable is our first priority. We made many changes during the design and also the construction drawing phase to reduce the cost of construction like changing the underpinning to bench, reducing the size of sliding door and else. This first floor addition is designed to have a second floor at some time in the future. This also will save money during the next phase since the floor is already designed to accommodate the future second floor expansion. As always, we make ourselves available during the construction to make sure the project goes smoothly. Answering contractor's questions in a very quick manner will keep them on their timing and budget. Can't wait to come and have a drink on the beautiful rear deck facing your backyard. Please don't keep us a secret! B well.

Thanks, From the start to finish it took about 20 days for an interior office renovation on the sixth floor of an office building. It went very well. Having the process shorten for any business is a win. Glad that it all came out fine. B well.

Thanks Anna for your kind words. Adding this size addition without going to committee of adjustments took a fair amount of time from us to make sure we comply with all aspects of the zoning bylaw and can save you application fees and the most importantly, time. We will be in touch with you and your contractor during the construction as part of our effort to be part of the project to the end. Please don't keep us a secret! We will gladly help your friends and family for any upcoming residential or commercial project. B well.

Thanks for your kind review.
I think the challenge with this project was your neighbour. We had a meeting with them and answered all their questions and put their mind at ease. Having the neighbours on board is very important.
This carport is a nice addition to your backyard. Please don't keep us a secret! B well.

The Shropshire Home

Our Architect Ben was a pleasure to work with. He designed a beautiful home for us. He knew his way around the city permit, committee of adjustment process and ensured that we received our permits in a timely manner. We are very pleased with his knowledge and ways to workaround when needed. He stayed on top of the delays and followed up with other parties when we didn't agree with specifications. I would highly recommend him for your future builds.

Thanks Meg, It was a super tight project to meet the dead line by CafeTO in Toronto to open up the outdoor patio space. Glad that we could submit 3 weeks before the dead line and can't wait to come and enjoy dining there with my family! B well.
