Some Testimonials

Farmer Construction

​  "Farmer Construction worked with Island Architectural Millwork Ltd. on the U VIC Centre KIP/Decanting Renovation. I. A. Millwork always stood behind their work and their lead installer, Rob M., did ​an exceptional job working with an extremely tight schedule and providing on site solutions to any issues that came up.​"
Site Super - Dave Haydar
PM - Chris Lyons 

Rochon Construction Mngnt.

"I just want to thank I.A. Millwork for all their great work at the Sears Nanaimo project. We all recognized going in to this project that it would be difficult due to the extensive amount of work and limited time to complete, you guys helped us pull it off without a hitch. I was extremely impressed with your ability to execute the contract scope and revisions, while maintaining the original 6 week schedule.
Thank-you for your help and I look forward to working with you guys again."​ 
PM - Paul Natalini

Unitech Construction Mngnt.

"We were the Construction Managers for $30,000,000 of interior renovations to the East Building at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The first phase of work was required to be done within a fixed 5 month ​schedule and entailed work to all the public areas, concourse, ballrooms, meeting rooms, and bathrooms. We needed trades that could perform. ​With a contract in excess of $400,000, Island Architectural Millwork Ltd. met all schedules, provided finished millwork of the highest quality, had skilled and motivated site crews, and excellent day to day project management. It is my pleasure to provide this testimonial and express my complete satisfaction with the products and services provided by Island Architectural Millwork Ltd." 
PM - Ian Fraser, AScT,BD.AIBC, LEEDap 

Miranda Construction

President - Gerry Bishop

City Tile​

​"With the stress of building and moving to a new location, it was a relief that we had no reason to worry about our cabinets, thanks to I.A. Millwork. They made our sketches a reality and fully exceeded our expectations. We had them install cabinets, cash desk, lunch room , board room and all bathrooms. Their selections weere endless and the professional advice made it simple to make decisions. Not only were they professional and detail oriented, they were also friendly and easy to get along with, including after sales service. We were also impressed with how accomodating they were with the many trades we were working around to keep us on schedule. We would fully recommend Island Architectural Millwork Ltd. to anyone." ​
Michelle Staniscia - City Tile
