…Our sincere thank you for all the good work done by you and your staff over the last many months in the design, procurement and construction of our new space in Vaughan.

Although we have only been in our new home for a short time we totally appreciate the quality of the space. Our landlord is still completing some of the final touches planned for after our move-in. From an operational perspective we were back at full functional capability just a few days after our move. This is a credit to the planning process around our move that you helped our people with.

As a contractor we understand the complexity of a project to create a new space and get that work done on time and on budget. We set the budgets and schedules for the various components of our new office space more than six months ago. We have accomplished all aspects of our move on time and on budget, a great accomplishment in this day and age…

…Again, many thanks for the great contribution of your group to this success story.

W. M. Shaver, President & CEO, DMC Mining Services


Beyond the interior design, Theo’s space planning and guidance regarding skylights, windows and stairways supported our vision and directed the interior architectural form of this design/build project. Theo also played a very signifiant role in the four-phase transition of approximately 400 associates from our previous facility to our new headquarters. This effort involved a tremendous amount of planning and meticulous attention to detail, and the result was a seamless and flawless execution, appreciated by all involved.

Your day to day support from needs’ assessment, project planning, furniture analysis, tender, construction and project management have definitely met our needs and expectations. Your patience has been invaluable, especially considering our somewhat lengthy procurement process.

Working closely with our internal team, Westparks+Associates provided complete space planning, interior design, and project management services for a five-storey building with 75,000 square feet of office space. Westparks’ sensitivity to the issues of corporate image structure, were always appropriately addressed, while accommodating the ongoing needs and preferences of individual departments. This allowed us to have a smooth transition from our old offices to our new environment.

The main reason for the timely and so very successful completion of the project was the selection of the right team to work with us. We needed both real estate and design firms that were sensitive to, and understood our needs, were patient as those needs shifted, and most important kept, us on track when our wish lists took us too far afield. Westparks + Associates was all that and more. We thoroughly enjoyed working with you and hope we can continue our fruitful association as time goes by.

On a personal level, everyone on our staff who worked with Westparks + Associates had only praise for Theo and her team in terms of their professionalism, their expertise and their enthusiasm for our project. The project was finished on time, under budget and our move into our new quarters last week was about as seamless as it could have been.

From the initial programming, need’s analysis, focus group and presentations on LEED design criteria, Theo and her team have shared their knowledge and experience with our executive group, allowing us to make the necessary informed and appropriate decisions along the way. Theo’s ability to listen, manage and interpret both from our operational issues, timelines, budget and LEED mandates was exceptional. On a personal note and as leader of the Markham office project, I often relied on Theo for her feedback and opinion, her responses were always open, honest and I trusted her judgment and commitment to our vision implicitly. She was instrumental in defining our need for a collaborative, open, flexible environment, where transparency within departments and to the exterior was mandatory. Westparks+Associates have created a space for us that is truly expansive, modern and warm.
