Ottawa Footy Sevens contracted Strathmar to construct the new soccer field at Immaculata High School in 2018. In choosing the contractor, cost was key but we also considered the company’s reputation. We wanted to know we would be an important enough project to have the contractor's full attention, not be just another line item. It was important to us to feel that we were in a partnership with the contractor; with Strathmar, we felt we got good advice and they also listened to what we thought were good solutions for things.
Strathmar’s bid was realistic and well thought out; there were no predictable surprises or add-ons that should have been foreseen and priced into the project in the first place. The pricing was accurate and honest.
We had regular site meetings; they were very accessible and responsive. We’re very happy with the final project and the field has been used by thousands of kids and adults to play soccer and other sports.
Even though we’re a past client, we still feel we are a partner. When we needed some information recently, they got it to us quickly. They follow us on social media and I’ll see Denis retweet photos we’ve shared of the field they built; that shows they take pride in their work.
I would heartily recommend Strathmar to anyone, without a shadow of a doubt.
