Facing a renovation of a 115 year old farmhouse is fraught with challenges and is not for the faint of heart. We chose Lacasse Construction for their consistent high standards of construction and most importantly, their ability to problem solve as the building history was exposed. The crew is extremely capable and good natured, and we had every concern addressed. It was a pleasure to work with the Lacasse team and the result is beyond our expectations. A smart investment on our part and for the next 115 years for the house!
It gives me great satisfaction to write this reference letter for Lacasse Construction they provided KDC Health with top notch service and pricing. They came in on budget and completed the project within the parameters in which they specified. The work as stated above was completed to our satisfaction, the employees of Lacasse Construction proved their reliability and trustworthiness while on and off the job site. They made themselves available to answer questions and or concerns at any time of day. I highly recommend Lacasse Construction without reservation.
During construction, Lacasse expressed and ensured that workplace safety was a top priority for themselves, their sub trades, and the public in general. All changes to the contract were conveyed clearly and assurances provided that the estimated time of completion for the project would not be delayed. It should be noted that Vista Broadcast Group is based out of Toronto, Ontario and that extra effort was necessary and executed by Lacasse to ensure that all lines of communication were consistently open and that all information was effectively expressed. The resulting renovation is all that we could have asked for in our new space. We would not hesitate to use Lacasse Construction again in the future
Our family has been active in property development in BC for three generations; personally I have been involved for over 40 years. During this period, I can state that Lacasse Construction is one of a select few that has performed all work tasks in excess of our expectations. We continue to commission Lacasse Construction for both new and renovation construction work. I rate this firm as 10/10 for general contracting work.
It has been my pleasure to work with Lacasse Construction and with Cale and Rick in particular on a number of projects over the last few years. Lacasse Construction combines their appreciation and understanding of design goals and of the architectural design process with their exemplary project management skills. This approach earns the respect of both clients and the design team. It means that communication between all members of the project team is optimum with the result that projects run smoother and schedules and budgets are met. Lacasse Construction’s attention to detail and innovative solutions ensure that they are one of my preferred General Contractors.
It was a distinct pleasure to work with Cale and his crew of experienced carpenters and first rate sub-trades. Construction is a very risky business and successful completion of these projects was in a large part determined by Lacasse and their commitment to quality, cost and schedule control and first rate Site Management. It is a pleasure to attend a well-organized clean construction site and find the work done well with pride and commitment. I recommend Lacasse Construction as a first class General Contractor, capable and able to deliver multi-million dollar projects on time and on budget. They are not only very professional but are enjoyable and fun guys to work with.
They have completed work on our new Autism Centre and our Sensory Building. These were both specialized projects that required a high degree of collaboration and communication throughout the project. It has been a pleasure to work with all of the Lacasse personnel on these projects. They are efficient, strong communicators, and highly professional. Their workmanship is exemplary. The projects have been completed within the stated timelines and any budgetary variances were well explained. Lacasse personnel are particularly sensitive to working around children and youth with developmental delays and some of their specific sensory challenges such as heightened sensitivity to loud noises or resistance to changes in routine. We feel lucky to have been able to work with Lacasse Construction over the years on so many projects.
Lacasse Construction completed a major renovation in my orthodontic office recently. I have been involved with numerous construction projects ranging from moderately sized new commercial developments to commercial building redevelopment to the construction of several orthodontic clinics to new home construction. Along the way I have worked with many contractors and subcontractors. This was my first experience with Lacasse Construction. The project involved the demolition and re- construction of a 1500 square foot area in my office. This was not a simple task. They faced many challenges both known and unknown. It was how they handled those challenges that made them the best contractors I have ever worked with. The word that best summarizes both Rick and Cale Lacasse is professional. They were both everything you would want in a general contractor.
All Island Equity REIT has been using Lacasse Construction the past two years and we are extremely satisfied with their performance. Upon the purchase of our base portfolio of properties, Lacasse Construction was able to provide us with invaluable insight regarding the long-term protection of our assets. Cale Lacasse’s hands on approach and project management skills have ensured that AIE REIT projects and repairs are completed properly and in a timely manner.
Two years ago I had an idea. Cale introduced me to a designer, Jennifer Charles. With the exceptional design and guidance a plan was made. Lacasse Construction with their amazing crew and contractors turned my plan into a carriage house. The final touches to detail, the care they put into their workmanship and the excellence they have in their craft has turned my space into a home. I am overwhelmed, grateful, and blessed that you all made my idea come to life. It truly is “My new beginning.” Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
I recently embarked on a complete renovation of my dental office. The office is housed in a 60-year-old building which brings complexities to the project. Additionally, dental offices are inherently complex due to the mechanical nature of the space. Cale and his team worked tirelessly through weekends and even a statutory holiday to complete this project on time. They took the interior back to the studs and amazingly put it all back together in precisely 28 days as they had promised. This was critical to us as we could not remain closed indefinitely. Besides being very efficient, the Lacasse team was an absolute pleasure to deal with. They were polite, friendly and everyone performed their jobs extremely well. No detail was left undone. Several months after the project was complete, I needed them to hang a sign and they were very obliging to do this small remaining task. I can wholeheartedly recommend this company for any and all projects you may have. In fact, I have hired them again for a residential renovation.
During my years as Elected Chief of the K’omoks First Nation I have worked closely and collaboratively with Lacasse Construction. I have found the owners of the company to be hard working, honest and solution oriented when dealing with project management and daily objectives. Both Rick Lacasse and his son Cale Lacasse have shown themselves to process a high degree of integrity and have demonstrated a sincere interest in our First Nation culture and have a profound respect for our conflicted history. In 2014, Lacasse Construction was contracted to build K’omoks a new multi-million dollar administration building. The job was completed on time and on budget. I highly recommend both Rick and Cale Lacasse for the work that they do.
We are pleased to have had the pleasure of working with Lacasse Construction over the past two years. Lacasse has performed both cost estimating for building projects involving in-kind and grant funding, and recently completed a new Village entrance sign off Hwy 19. Currently we are working with them on updates to our Museum building and office washroom. Both Rick and Cale are professional to deal with, have demonstrated they are knowledgeable when it comes to all aspects of the construction trade, pay attention to detail and their workmanship is excellent.
The Comox Valley Art Gallery (CVAG) recently undertook a substantial renovation, and Lacasse walked with us through every step of the journey – helping us imagine and develop various aspects of the vision, and handling our specific requests with the utmost professionalism. It was great for our staff team to get to know the crew, and to work with them in various capacities while they were on-site for the better part of 5 months. We were extremely pleased with the work, and with the ways in which the team navigated complications. By the end of the reno, we felt we had gained new family members, and while happy with the work, were sad to say goodbye. I strongly recommend the Lacasse team to anyone looking for skilled construction professionals who excel in the face of a challenge, and who exude awesomeness.
