Help with permitting process for an existing carport

Utes Inc. helped us get unblocked in a complicated permitting process with the city. After the city spent months going back and forth between our architect, Arash was able to inspect and address the structural questions for the city quickly, with minimal fuss and cost and get our permit got approved within a week.

Would highly recommend!

Structural inspection review

Overall I was very happy with the service. The only issue was a mix up of the schedule causing the inspection to be done an hour later than expected. Despite that the service was efficient and informative. He was patient answering many questions about the structure of the house and the planned renovations. The answers were very helpful, informative and thorough.

Plans for Building Permits

I required a Balcony Restoration Permit fairly quickly to move forward with my project.

That means I required a Structural Engineer to review and approve plans. From there, Arash took care of all the forms, submissions, etc etc. And when we had questions or concerns, no issues. He took the calls even AFTER his service had concluded. Very professional.

It was headache-free. There were no surprises. He made everything seamless and efficient.

We are pleased to highly recommend Arash from Utes.

We were EXTREMELY satisfied with Arash services.

Structural assessment

Arash was able to determine if my 2 storey house could bear the load of adding a 3rd floor. He provided me with several options for optimizing how I could increase the square footage density while minimizing possible objections from the committee of adjustment. He also demonstrated flexibility in combining elements of the various options so that I could consider moving forward with a solution that best met my particular needs.

Engineer/Architecture Drawings & Permit Submission

We hired Utes to design, architect and engineer drawings for a new Garage we were building, as well as submit & guide these documents through the Toronto Committee of Adjustments & building permit process. Throughout the whole process, Arash was extremely professional, courteous & very responsive. Every time I had a question or needed some clarity on anything, Arash was there to help and did so in the most professional way.
Highly recommend Utes for any structure engineering work, and will definitely go back for any future work. Thank you Arash.

Excellent professional assessment and advice

We contacted Utes to provide a structural assessment of our east Toronto, semi-detached home’s 34 year old, 2nd storey extension. The Utes structural engineer promptly scheduled an appointment, conducted a thorough, on-site assessment of the extension including both its interior and exterior condition with particular attention to the foundation footings. Utes provided a preliminary verbal opinion at the time of the visit and followed up with an excellent, detailed, written report that included
recommendations and professional stamp within a week of the on-site visit. Before finalizing the report Utes provided us with a draft for comment. Utes was completely
professional in their conduct, observed all COVID19 protocols, and were friendly, open and polite. Payment was easily made in two instalments by eTransfer. We highly recommend Utes.
