We were way over our heads trying to imagine how to build our first restaurant until Klondike came aboard. In seven weeks Klondike took the Re-Up at River Market from design drawings and an equipment list to completion, and they finished it on budget. Thanks for all your help Eric!

Without exception, the work has been well done and in a timely manner. Once the work has been completed, there is always a follow up call to ensure we were satisfied with the results. We would highly recommend Klondike as a company that communicates well with their customers and for the high standards that are set with their projects.

We feel our companies worked very well together, especially as it related to architectural plans, permitting and the quality of work upon project completion. We appreciate your company’s extensive assistance with the Vancouver Building Department, acquiring a competent Structural Engineer and seeing that the permitting was followed through. Thank you again for all the hard work and completing the project within the rigid timeline that Salvatore Ferragamo set forth.
Charles Russo

Construction Manager, Salvatore Ferragamo

We were planning a major update of our space. We needed some great storage ideas and much cleaner sight lines and security features. We had very specific needs for displaying our products and Annaliesse met the challenge with lots of fresh ideas and enthusiasm. She was always available to answer any questions we had and to clarify any issues that came up; whether it was with the function or the design aesthetic. We are very happy with all the final outcome of our renovation. We love the function and we love the look of the completed renovation.
