We have earned a reputation for creative designs that fit a homeowners needs and budget, with a firm commitment to excellence, integrity, and transparency. Andrew Parker, owner, is a master carpenter and a third generation builder in S.W. Ontario. Andrew is the main contact on each and every project, throughout all phases of design, permitting and construction.
When you hire Par-Tek, you can rely on Andrew to advise on and oversee every step of your project, from beginning to end. You can expect our full attention to detail and dedication to ensure quality of design and construction throughout. We also provide excellent advice on market value.
Our motto is “Old Fashioned Quality is Never Out of Style” and we live by it, every day.
Par-Tek provides a high quality final product, for a medium cost. We have found over the years that a firm such as ours can distinguish itself based on costs (trying to be the lowest) or quality (with value). We offer you full service that provides thoughtful design and quality finishes throughout. Our sourcing is second to none and we routinely provide our clients excellent deals on appliances, marble stone, manufacturer’s specials and close outs on a variety of finishes.
Our passionate craftsmen have been working and colluding with us for many years, and they will also contribute to the design and final finish. We can always rely on them to provide excellent advice and value. This essential and familiar team allows us to control quality and scheduling to a high degree.
We focus on the unique remodeling needs of GTA homes (occasionally cottages) and commercial interiors. Our primary focus is custom homes, additions and major renovations. We also provide general contracting and pre-purchase real estate consultation where potential buyers are contemplating major changes to a particular home they are interested in. Par-Tek Design Build Ltd. has extensive experience in Toronto, Mississauga, Vaughn, and Oakville Building Departments as well as a wealth of knowledge regarding the Ontario Building Code. This expertise and experience assures an added value during the planning, design and permit phases of custom homes, additions, renovations and new builds. In the past, we have managed several large commercial renovations on St. Mikes Hospital, Mt. Sinai Hospital, University of Toronto, York University, places of worship, Government offices, high security installations for the OPP, Toronto Police Services, and many others. A full project list is available upon request. Our experience with large and complex projects has honed our project management skills, and will benefit you directly as our efforts are more experienced, focused and efficient than other firms of our size. This is not just our opinion, but also the opinion of our clients.
Our typical project is in excess of $100,000 but we sometimes work on smaller projects, when the client has timing flexibility and we can fit their project in between larger ones.
Our valued clients appreciate the personal attention and hands-on service that we provide. We approach each project as a collaboration with our clients and project partners, including other design professionals, skilled craftsmen, subcontractors, fabricators, suppliers, and manufacturers.
Our goal is simple:
Listen to your needs and create a specific design for you that will meet your needs of today as well as future needs
Collaborate on a design, meeting your budget needs
Meet market value goals
Produce a final build with quality throughout, on time and on budget
