The Westway Penthouse Renovation

We are writing this letter of reference for Maurice Fuoco of The Fifth Wall. The Fifth Wall came highly recommended to us last autumn by several persons with extensive experience in the construction/renovation field. In particular, we were told that Maurice would bring not only significance experience and knowledge but also a design sensibility while being mindful of our budgetary constraints and our personal likes and dislikes.

Although we have actually only been under renovation/construction for that past month, we must say that Maurice and his site supervisor have provided service and expertise beyond our expectations.

In particular, we have appreciated the manner in which Maurice and his site supervisor have ensured that we understand each step of the project, the careful attention to alternative sub-trades and suppliers in order to ensure the optimal cost/benefit ratio and the ongoing communication and updates. Our site visits are well planned and we have had the opportunity to meet with preferred sub-trades to get input for alternatives to our original ideas or to deal with specific site conditions that have arisen.

We have had multiple delays and constraints arising from the condominium corporation, and Maurice has been extremely flexible and creative in working around these problems in order to keep us on schedule. It is evident that Maurice and his staff work well as a team and they appear to have a productive and mutually respectful working relationships with their trades. They have developed an excellent working relationship with our building’s management which has been very conducive to sorting out some of the site specific concerns. They ensure that the worksite is very tidy and safe.

Although our actual working relationship has only been in place for the past 2 months, we would have no hesitation in recommending The Fifth Wall to our friends.

Kathleen and John Macdonald
