Rocco was great to work with. He was prompt with deliverables, punctual for meetings, provided professional service and easy to work with if we had questions and/or changes to our plans as well as being reasonably priced. In the summer of 2012, Rocco provided us with drawings for a new addition and was available to come out for measurements the day after we spoke. The preliminary drawings were done in about two weeks and finalized within a week. He knows how to fast track permits and we got ours in less than two weeks. We made one major change to the plans during construction which Rocco also drafted for us and filed for permit. Drawings were done the next day. During construction I asked him for a second opinion and he came out to have a look without hesitation. I have already recommended Rocco’s services to friends. Oh ya, Rocco and his wife had a little girl during all of this! As with any supplier, ask questions, don’t be afraid to make changes and be sure of what you’re getting.
Rocco has been amazing in his work, courtesy and patience. We had our first meeting with Rocco back in February 20, 2010. We were planning on doing a two story addition in our house. Rocco came home, listened to our ideas and that same week, submitted drawings that met our needs. In order to obtain the city’s approval we ended having to go through the Committee of Adjustments and Rocco took care of everything. We got the approval and; unfortunately, due to different circumstances, we needed to do changes to accommodate our new needs. Rocco showed the comprehension and understanding that, I believe, is difficult to find in the fast paced renovation businesses. Once we were ready, Rocco provided new ideas that were incorporated in the current drawings. After more than two years, the renovation has started and we may be back “home” by January 2013. I would highly recommend Rocco to anyone who is looking for a dedicated and knowledgeable professional. Thank you Rocco!!
Rocco was an amazing architect to work with. He was very proffesional and courteous in getting drawings done, submitted and quickly approved. We had our permit personaly delivered and ready to begin building within two weeks. When we needed a small revision done, Rocco did not hesitate in adjusting the drawing, re-submitting them and approved by the city. I would highly recommend Rocco to anyone who is looking for a dedicated, trustworthy and knowledgable guy
Small Addition and Renovation All the good things that they are saying about Rocco are true. For our project we needed architectural design services including advice along with the required building permits. Rocco provided this promptly in a very professional, efficient and friendly manor. Everything he did was very accurate and there were no hitches. We will not hesitate to use Rocco on our next renovation
This is the second time I have used Rocco’s services. He is very knowledgeable and helped me maneuver through any challenges we had to deal with. Rocco’s helped us through comittee of adjustements and also to get our permits very quickly. I was astounded by Rocco’s response time as he was tireless through the entire process from the begining stages to helping us with estimations through permit application and even helped us onsite while work was being done when minor changes were decided on… (Read more) last minute. Would recommend Rocco to anyone that is looking to manage a successful project.
Rocco was a miracle worker! He helped us plan our addition and provided us drawings and updates in a timely manner. He posessed an in-depth understanding of the city by-laws and assisted us with some difficult permitting issues. Rocco was always available to provide guidance and ideas of how to overcome obstacles. We are planned and permitted thanks to Architalcan!
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!
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.
If I can describe Rocco: – straight forward – fast – got the job done – got me a piece of mind I will use him again for my next projects.
