You can tell people all about your superior service and product, but it’s when other people start recommending the quality of your work and commitment that there is credibility and integrity to what is being said. Cardan Enterprises and its staff have become the subjects of well-earned and favorable comment throughout the construction business in Western Canada.
As part of McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada Destination 2012 renovation program Stantec and Cardan worked together for over a period of 3 years on numerous McDonald’s projects including small interior fit outs, drive thru renovations, full building renovations and building expansions. Some challenges on these projects involved;
• extremely tight deadlines
• completing renovations while keeping a restaurant kitchen fully operational
• unforeseen as-built conditions
• unfavourable weather conditions in remote areas
Throughout the D2012 projects Cardan was in constant communication with the design team and was able to solve site issues quickly over the phone and via emails. Cardan made the project run smoother for the design team, the client and the operator. Above all Cardan consistently delivered.

“As I indicated, as a representative of Fortis BC, I am very pleased with the project Cardan has headed up for us at our new Springfield Head Office location. They have provided excellent on-site management and met deadlines under the duress of a labour dispute at the site by facilitating after-hour work with the trades for most of the renovations.”
I am extremely impressed with the services at Cardan. We had a worry free construction project that was completed on schedule. Thank you.

I always felt like I knew what was happening and was getting the ‘straight goods.’ All my questions were answered and all commitments made by Cardan were completed to my satisfaction.”

“My husband and I contracted with Cardan Enterprises to build our cottage at La Casa Lakeside Resort. We were extremely impressed by their attention to detail and responsiveness to our questions.
“It seemed like Cardan was always one step ahead of us. Anytime we would phone to inquire about something, they had already dealt with it. They kept us well informed of the progress of our cottage. Cardan made the effort to understand what we wanted and would make suggestions to ensure that we would get the maximum enjoyment our of our place.
“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Cardan Enterprises and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to anyone looking to take on a building project.”

“Claude and I would like to thank you for an excellent job constructing our outdoor custom storage shed and bathroom upgrade. Our storage shed was completed on time as promised during our summer vacation. Your crew was on time each day and very professional. The craftsmanship was very accurate and well done. We are very happy with the finished product… Our bathroom upgrade – adding a slate shower with glass doors came out great as well… The job Cardan performed matches the premium finishes in our cottage… They did it right the first time.
“We heard Cardan did a superior job and was great with creative ideas, now we know it is true!”
