Claude provided consistent and thorough professional design and planning advice in support of our home entrance and carport renovation/upgrade project, currently scheduled for spring 2018. His advice and judgement in design is excellent. He also offers solid advice on other project aspects including: lighting, finish and colour. Planning conversations lead to positive and informed outcomes. Moreover Mr, Garand has a remarkable ability to find practical and attractive solutions to the on-site challenges of renovation. We look forward to working with Claude on future renovation projects.                                                                                                                Gregory Thompson - Client

Claude helped us design our beautiful new house and we never regretted working with him. He was attentive to our needs and tastes and we had to work within a tight schedule. We appreciated his attention to details and great experience. He was present during the whole construction period and helped with solving problems we would have had a hard time to deal with without his help.  I highly recommend him.                                                Gaetan Martel - Client 

*****                                                                                                 
Throughout design and construction, Claude was there to listen, guide us and provide positive input. As the architect and advocate for us with the city, Claude had done the research to get our project approved in an extremely professional manner. Our project was a complicated one, requiring more than 30 variances from zoning requirements. Some of Claude's best attributes are his approach, promptness, knowledge and availability. We will definitely use Claude for future projects as he has a wealth of knowledge and experience, is easy to work with and extremely approachable.                                                                                                                                                              Steve Marechal - Builder

​From a blank piece of paper to a final design, Claude did a great job of listening and incorporating everything we wanted in a manner that didn't break the bank, yet delivered a stylish, modern home that took full advantage of the features of our hilltop river view. We would not hesitate to recommend Claude to our closest friends.        Douglas Russell - Client

I truly recommend Claude for any design project. He has so much experience. I've had the opportunity to visit three of his completed homes. in each case, the clients were thrilled with the outcome. Each home had unique features and was well suited to it's surroundings. Claude designs at a high level with both style and function in mind.
