To whom it may concern,

By way of this letter I would like to endorse the services of Mr. Ghislain Morin. He is an excellent general contractor who brings with him a variety of skills including: project management to ensure project schedules and budgets are respected, strong communications skills to successfully liaise between owners, municipal authorities and various trades as well as a high level of knowledge and skills related to construction and final finishings.

Overview of our project

Mr. Morin was hired in 2010 to act as our general contractor and subsequently oversaw the development and construction of our country residence located in the province of Quebec. The project called for someone to manage the construction of a four season log home manufactured by Confederation Log Homes Ltd. It was to be constructed on a slope of bedrock on a pie-shaped lot along the Gatineau River which needed to adhere to very strict environmental bylaws of Chelsea, Quebec.

From the on-set of our project Mr. Morin played an instrumental role in mapping out the requirements of our project and provided us with reasonable timelines based on the season and our budget. From the start he effectively liaised with the local authorities to secure approvals for various permits such as a new septic system. He was always present for each inspection to ensure the project met the building codes or resolved any issues in a timely manner so that the project could progress as scheduled.

In addition, Mr. Morin was entrusted to hire and manage a variety of trades required to complete this complex project.  During this timeframe he demonstrated strong project management skills which ensured the correct trades were hired for each phase of the project. Trades included excavators, roofers, plumbers, heating and cooling trades, electricians, landscapers, etc.

While no project is ever smooth sailing our experience with Mr. Morin made it feel as though it were. His calm and respectful demeanor meant that we were kept up-to-date about each milestone of our project. At the same time we were engage for our feedback regarding important decisions that needed our input. Both Mr. Morin’s advice and expertise helped to guide us seamlessly through our project from start to finish.

We are very pleased to say we are now the proud owners of an outstanding property thanks to Mr. Morin and his team. Our family will continue to maintain both a friendship as well as working relationship with Mr. Morin in future.

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Robert and Mrs. Dagmar Forget
