Managing buildings and the people in them is difficult. Edison has designed an approach to help managers provide better service and to make their jobs a little easier. We deliver reports and projects on time, we present complex engineering problems in clear and easy to understand formats, and we provide flexible and pragmatic recommendations. We go the extra distance to make sure your client is satisfied.
Building owners, especially condominium boards, appreciate that we present information clearly, that we are easy to work with, and most importantly, that we deliver projects on time and within budget. Edison understands our role as consultants – we provide Boards with the knowledge they need to make confident decisions for their buildings. Our reports explore the pros and cons of various repair options and we are always available to meet with Boards to discuss our findings and recommendations.
Edison is the right choice for private building owners. Edison is focused on results, we design solutions tailored to our client’s objectives and financial constraints then work extremely hard to deliver the project on time and within budget. Our clients appreciate that we respect their achievements to accumulate significant assets and that we work hard to protect their investment in repairing their buildings. We offer an array of engineering services, from condition assessments on all building components, structural design, capital planning, to pre-purchase or refinance inspections.
Edison's engineers are professional, very honest and always responsive. I find them very easy to talk to. I will definitely consult Edison for my future projects.
Just wanted to thank you for your efforts to educate and help, in walking the owners through the proposed caulking and cladding project last Thursday night. Your explanations, frankness and building mock-up really helped to put this project in perspective. We were very grateful for the time you afforded us. Kind regards,
on behalf of the concerned owners
Thank-you very much Matt, for your due diligence and patience. I feel very confident that we made the correct decision in hiring your firm and that we are in safe hands.
You have been a wonderful support for me Matt. I understand you took on a relationship with the client that you usually don't do. Hopefully, in the future this wouldn't be necessary. I understand we have a new manager for our condo and I do hope that the communication improves. However, for this period of time where I felt very adrift and very isolated in my leaking problems, your support was really exceptional. I am very grateful. Warmly and with great big thanks!
From the first meeting to discuss replacement of the condo heated garage ramp, Edison Engineers Inc. has proven to be professional in every way. Jordon Vandervelde advised that he would be our Project engineer. During all phases of the Project, Jordan could be seen checking, making suggestions or advising of a better way to do the job. He was always professional while maintaining his sense of humour. When a problem resulted in property damage due to a Sub-contractor's error, Jordan resolved the matter in favour of the involved residents. From my experience, I would highly recommend Edison Engineers Inc. and Jordan Vandervelde.
We have just completed major repairs to our garage at 275 Bamburgh Circle in Scarborough, Ontario, costing over $1,000,000. Our building has Post Tensioning Cables in the Garage and throughout the Building. The project was completed on time and below budget. I represented our Condominium Board during the repairs. I was completely satisfied with the way Edison Engineers represented our Corporation. They have also represented us with the replacement of our Heating and Hot Water Boilers. I have strongly recommended Edison Engineers to the other two Corporations in our Complex. We are presently using them on other projects in our Building and our Board of Directors are very satisfied with their performance.
I would just like to pass on our compliments on how great it was working with your organization. We just completed a project of insulating our ice rink with Matt Charbonneau as our Engineer. It was a very pleasant experience and I found having him as our go between person between us and our contractor very easy. Any issues that came up were dealt with promptly and efficiently. Thanks for helping to make this project go smoothly! It was very much appreciated.
As the Facility Manager for Toronto Rehab’s Lyndhurst and Rumsey Center I have worked with Edison Engineers Inc. on a number of projects from a full site assessment to completing an Infrared Scan on one of our buildings. Recently Edison Engineers Inc acted on behalf of the hospital as consultant for a large paving project. In all the work Edison Engineers Inc has done for UHN the work was completed to very professional standards and very much to mine and my team’s satisfaction. I consider them to be the experts in the field when dealing with building envelope and structural issues. I will be working with them in the future and strongly recommend others in the Healthcare sector to do the same.
Must say this report is the best such I have seen. For 20 years now I have been disappointed by the poor response I've had from roofers and other engineers to my demands for solid data on drainage from roofs and other surfaces. Without that, we can only guess at repairs required. Yours is the first I've received that tells what we need to know and enough of what we need to know. Well done, and thanks.
I highly recommend ... Edison Engineers Inc. as they always prepare a range of solutions ... that allows us to determine the cost benefit and effectiveness of the solution to meet the needs of the organization.
Edison's engineers are professional, very honest and always responsive. I find them very easy to talk to. I will definitely consult Edison for my future projects.
I highly recommend the services of Edison Engineers Inc. for two main reasons. Firstly, they have integrity. Edison understands that it is the Condominium’s building and their money. They provide Boards with clear options and recommendations and then act only upon their needs and budget. Secondly, they have excellent client service. Edison presents detailed and complex matters in easy to understand formats. They follow-up and they are willing to discuss or present their recommendations in person. Edison's approach helps me as a property manager to provide great service and allows my Boards to make confident decisions about their buildings.
I have had the pleasure of working with Edison for many different properties on a wide variety of issues. Jason and his staff possess an incredible knowledge of all aspects of buildings, from the roof to the parking garage, and everything in between. Edison's approach to their reports and studies are so comprehensive, detailed and accurate. My condominium Boards find their work manageable and easy to understand. Edison brings honesty to the table; he is genuinely concerned about each project he takes on, keeping it on budget and getting the best results for his clients. I recommend Edison Engineers to any management firm looking on behalf of their Boards for engineering services. You will not be disappointed!
President, Royal Property Management
Our contractor was doing renovations on our newly purchased condo when he discovered significant water penetration and resultant black mold. As new owners we were aghast and deeply concerned. Thankfully our Board of Directors and Property Manager reacted quickly and engaged Edison Engineers Inc. to assess the situation. Jason Truman, James Armstrong and the team from Edison were thorough and professional in identifying and rectifying our problem. Because we are over twenty floors high in a downtown building there were the complications of finding a suitable contractor, dealing with the city for permits and erecting street level scaffolding for protection of pedestrians. This coordination was all taken care of through our Property Management Company and Edison. When the time came for the actual repair, Edison determined the appropriate action and supervised the entire job. It was interesting to see James Armstrong working on a swing stage high above the ground to ensure that the proper repairs were taking place. We were very pleased with Edison’s dedication to this project. We are extremely thankful to our Board of Directors, Maple Ridge Community Management and Edison Engineers.
I was one of 6 Directors on our Condo Board who voted to spend 2 to 3 million dollars to repair and restore all aspects of our badly neglected building, underground garage, swimming pool tennis court, sea wall and extensive surrounding grounds. To do this we decided it was of paramount importance to seek the best possible company qualified to assist, advise, and guide us from start to finish. After considerable research we decided on a highly recommended company Edison Engineers Inc. Because of the magnitude and scope of the work involved Edison developed and is guiding us through a comprehensive reconstruction plan designed to restore our 11 floor 87 unit waterfront Condo to its position as the premier waterfront Condo between Toronto and Montreal. We are approaching year 3 and we are on track to complete the project as planned and under budget. In summary, we have relied heavily on Edison and in no instance has our reliance been in vain.
Faced with major repairs to our balconies, garage ramp and garage floor, our Board of Directors decided to engage a consulting/project engineer in view of the complexity of the work. Our RFP clearly led us to choose Edison Engineers Inc. to guide us through the projects. Edison thoroughly presented all options to repair our deteriorating balconies and garage, giving our Board the knowledge needed to make the right decisions. Actual costs for the work fell within the estimates provided by Edison, and the construction work progressed successfully, on time and within budgets. Edison Engineers are professional and a pleasure to work with. We are extremely happy with our decision to engage Edison, and will strongly recommend them to other condominium Corporations.
I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Jason Truman and the team at Edison Engineers on numerous jobs (both commercial and residential) over the past few years. Their 'out of the box' creative approach to problem solving differentiates Edison from the competition. I am always impressed by their professionalism, attention to detail, responsiveness and adherence to schedules. I know that when Edison is on a file that I have one less thing to worry about!
Director - ICI Properties
Edison has done an outstanding detailed job putting together the tender. With these spec's down to the type of nails, screws and glue we can look forward to enhancing the value of HCC70 for each unit holder when the new balcony project is completed.
Thanks Edison. Your expertise and attention to detail are major reasons why these projects have gone so smoothly and ended up under budget.
It is my pleasure - I think it is important to find people you can trust to do a good job - and I trust you to do that!
Many thanks to Edison Engineers for their excellent assistance in many projects involving water leaks, structural issues, etc in various buildings under our management. You are always professional and timely!
We engaged Edison Engineers Inc. to do a Comprehensive Reserve Fund study for our 123 unit townhome condominium. Our board was impressed with their adherence to timelines and a face to face meeting to fine-tune the timing of shorter term maintenance repairs. The resulting study was well organized and provides a useful management tool for the board.
I want you to know that the Board is very happy with you and your firm and feel like they are in good hands. They are so impressed and overwhelmed by your knowledge.
I think you've just pulled off a miracle. Way to go!
Senior Property Manager
If I haven't mentioned this, I will now. I am very impressed with these site reports from Edison. No guesswork here; clear & concise; we know exactly where the project stands on a weekly basis.
This was my second Window project for a high rise. Although I entered the project midway, I felt that it went very smoothly. The communications with Edison, allowed me and the Board to be on top of all aspects of the project. It is always a pleasure working with you and all members of Edison Engineers.
Property Manager, Trademark Property Management Ltd.
Ahsan, thanks for attending last night’s meeting.
You were nothing short of brilliant, they all raved about you.
It was so obvious that you have all this at your fingertips.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Admiral’s Walk, as a customer of Edison Engineers Inc. for several years, confirms that during its relationship with Edison they have proven their services to be of high quality, reliable and efficient. Edison has provided engineering services in various engineering capacities and are readily available in a time of need. In one project alone, Edison provided the design for replacement of our residential condominium suite windows. The replacement windows have proven to be stellar in appearance and performance.
On behalf of the board of LCC9 I would like to thank you for the excellent job you did managing our window replacement project. You and your team were patient, helpful, and well informed at every step of the process. Because you did such a great job explaining the project to the owners with both the in person presentation and the video, we had almost no owner complaints. Your communication skills are top notch and I would recommend you to anyone who wanted help with any engineering project. I would also like to thank you for your help dealing with Moresco who is an excellent contractor but we the board had no experience knowing what we could or should request of a contractor in a project of this magnitude. Your advocacy was appreciated. You were also a great help trouble shooting with problems as they arose. The entire project was smooth for the board and we appreciate your skill.
I also want to thank you for doing such an excellent job with our Reserve Fund Study. Without that we would have had difficulty planning the finances of this and multiple other projects without incurring a future special assessment.
I think we are all on side that Edison Engineers did and excellent job from the design, managing, recommending the correct contractor and overall management of the project. Good communication with the board on the weekly activities and resolving deficiencies. Edison was very professional and Joe McGowan and his crew should be recognised for their management and overall people skills. Great job and thanks again.
When we, LCC 9, first decided to put new windows in our 143 unit building in Sarnia Ontario we decided to go with Edison Engineers of London Ontario. That was the best decision we as a Board could have made. Edison was involved in all aspects of the project and did a wonderful job start to finish.
When we started to talk about a engineering company to be involved in the project l personally thought it was a lot of money to oversee a project but l can tell you today, with 20/20 hindsight, that the money we spent with Edison Engineers was by far the best money we spent in the entire project. Edison takes all the pressure of the Board of Directors they are always on top of the progress of the job and they know what to look for on a project of this size. They handled all financial pay outs to the window manufacture/ installing company and they also held all hold backs until after the job was complete.
Joe McGowan was our project manager from Edison and he was excellent. Never got rattled and was always in charge and on top of things and Joe is very easy to communicate with and is very knowledgeable about projects like this. If l moved to another condo and was elected to the Board and they had a upcoming window project l would recommend to the Board to make one phone call and that would be to Joe McGowan and Edison Engineers. They know what they are doing.
Stefan and Shawna, Thank you for the updated proposal. The board was pleased to accept your proposal because we liked your approach to these projects, your expertise in this area, your ability to meet deadlines, and your strong communication skills which included being responsive and attentive.
Board Member, Waterloo North condo
The Board chose Edison Engineers because of previously working with them on our garage restoration project in 2020. Kressview is currently replacing all exterior windows, balcony sliding doors and balcony guard rails along with repairing and painting balconies.
Edison Engineers have proven to be easy to work with, courteous, professional, knowledgeable and quick to offer viable solutions to our questions and problems that may arise.
Shawna Smigelski of Edison Engineers is our Project Manager; she and her team have impressed us with their exemplary professionalism and attention to detail. The team comes to meetings very much prepared and outlines in detail what has been completed and will be completed according to schedule. Shawna is very much in control of what she does and is to be commended for her professionalism.
We the Board at Kressview Springs recommend Edison Engineers Inc. for your future projects.
WatSCC22 Board President
We cannot thank Edison enough for their drive, commitment, and tenacity in fighting for over 200 deficiency items that were on our Performance Audit. The outcome was far better than expected by the Corporation. The Board of Directors and Owners are so grateful with the cost award from Tarion of over $1.3 Million!
This would not have been possible without Raj and his team’s constant guidance and leadership in pushing for the Corporation’s rights against the Builder and Tarion.
Victoria Philips, RCM, OLCM, VP & Sr. Condominium Manager
Great to hear from you, yes everything is going great, the communication with the team has been fantastic!! This is why we love working with Edison so much!
