Hear what people are saying about us
"It has been a pleasure to have met you and work with you over the last 6 months. As you know we had a very aggressive timeline from the time we sold our home of 28 years in Calgary, purchased a lot in the seaside community, Arbutus Ridge on Vancouver Island and began to build our dream home. We did this mostly from 1,000 miles away with the use of technology and the tremendous support and attention to detail by you, your office staff and your very capable and professional tradesmen.
There are many stories from others about building a new home; most of them disappointing and frustrating. From the time you were referred to Myra and I and we had our first meeting, you have been reassuring and always were looking after our best interest. From design, to permit approvals, to all phases of construction and most importantly keeping our new neighbours satisfied in an established community was appreciated. The agreed to phased timelines were met, the detailed budgets versus actual costs were realistic and where they were exceeded it was due to our 'change of mind'.
"Thank you very much to you and your team. It is without hesitation that Myra and I will recommend Bob Thomson Construction to anyone looking to take on a project that requires high standards, innovative approaches and an eye on the details"
-Ron & Myra Jones
“Thank you, Lisa and Bob Thomson, for the great experience of building our custom home. We were nervous, but you made it easy!
“Bob said building would take 6 months—and we couldn’t believe when it did! Because it’s in the flood zone, Bob had to build the house 7 feet above ground, but the plans he came up with were amazingly creative. He was always coming up with great suggestions and communicated with us regularly.
“We have been living in our dream home for a year now and we love it. It even won the Residential Development Award of Excellence."
-Henk & Joyce
"Bob is a true creative genius. He took the concept I had for my fireplace and turned it into a work of art, including me each and every step of the way. He instinctively understood when I needed to be involved and when I did not. His team was respectful and I enjoyed having them in my personal space. Bob Thomson is exceptional!"
Henk & Joyce
"After interviewing several builders, we had the good fortune of meeting Bob Thomson, of Bob Thomson Construction. He made our dream of having a custom home a reality. The architectural plans from our architect were less than what we had expected, and Bob had to fill in many blanks. With the breadth of his experience, he made the process feel easy with his confident, optimistic, can-do nothing-seemed-impossible attitude. He was able to understand our style and anticipate our concerns and wishes. By the end of the project, he could almost read our minds. His experience, ingenuity and creativity allowed us to do things with our home that other builders and architects said were not possible. He suggested so many things that were inexpensive but added so much value to the home; snow melt system, extension of the deck, mezzanine, and on and on. I can without reservation say that due to his experience and ingenuity he saved us 10% in construction cost. He prides himself on saving the client money while improving the quality of construction and value of the amenities. He is without a doubt one of the most honest contractors you will find.
By the time our home was complete, we had the utmost respect and admiration for Bob. He had professional and competent crews and subs. Several years later, we still consider Bob a friend. He continues to be there for us, and we love our home."
