I have nothing but glowing reviews and statements about Zeev and Yazek Engineering! Zeev came to our home to do a couple of things. Instead, Zeev has ended up working for a couple of weeks because we appreciated his skill, attention and care. If Zeev says he can do, he can! If Zeev says he'll do it, he will! I will use Zeev on all future needs. Highly recommend.
The best thing we ever did was to hire De Marco Builders to remodel our kitchen and add bamboo hardwood flooring in our newly purchased 1982 condo in NW Portland. This was a downsize for us and most likely the last home we will ever purchase. This should have been an easy job, but there were some surprising structural problems we inherited. De Marco Builders wasn't fazed a bit! Joe and his amazing crew jumped right in to make our kitchen perfect! They worked long into the night to make sure we could move in on time. The whole job took less than 10 days. Joe has great instincts on design and was a huge help to us when we were having trouble deciding which cabinets, counter tops, backsplash and flooring would be right. He has a lot of experience and knows what works and what doesn't work. He was very honest with his opinions, which, I appreciated very much. It was important to Joe that everything was perfect for us. He seriously took our happiness to heart in every aspect of the remodel. Joe De Marco was always available and stayed in constant contact with us. Our kitchen is beautiful and our hardwood floors are solid and stunning!! We couldn't be more thrilled!! Even though our job is finished, we plan to stay in touch with Joe. He's that kind of guy!!
I had Michael do some structural design on a hangar that I built. His plans and ideas were excellent, but above all his greatest quality is his absolute integrity. It is so nice to work with someone that you know you can totally trust.
As a small start-up, we hired Bob to streamline the design of our initial concept. He not only outperformed previous drafters with expedient and interactive service, but went above and beyond to help problem solve simple design errors and troubleshoot manufacturing possibilities. He has a wealth of information and experience that would make him an asset to any and all future projects.
I had a small painting job, just 3 rooms, Jeffrey was on time and had the job done a little faster than I expected. He took care to cover my hardwood floors and the quality of the work was very good. Jeffrey is very personable but professional. From my limited experience with him I would recommend him to others.
Bruce was very friendly & responsive. He was happy to advise us on the engineering and architectural process we were thinking of. Our project is temporarily on hold but Bruce was very helpful.
Jessicarae worked out a landscape design for my grandmother that blended with the prior landscape, while introducing new plants that thrive in the specific site conditions. My grandmother is an extremely "selective" client and Jessicarae was sensitive to her many specific requests and requirements. Jessicarae was thoughtful and patient to work with and always stayed within stated project deadlines, communicating any challenges and shifting timelines. My family would hire her again for any new projects!
We have worked with Lara's Construction several times. The largest project that we completed together was Big Al's in Beaverton. Lara's did all of the carpet and tile flooring. They did an exceptional job and I'd highly recommend them.
We were looking for an architect to design our new 250 sf energy efficient backyard ADU. Our backyard is small and we wanted to locate the new adu so that it faced a small dogwood tree in the corner of the backyard. This also provided us with the needed privacy between the new adu and our home. Daniel Lajoie with Departure Architecture was great to work with. The design that we came up together located a small sleeping loft above the living spaces. Most of the windows face the dogwood and along with the overall volume created in the space, our little adu feels so much larger than it actually is. Daniel also showed us how we could design and build an extremely energy efficient adu with our given budget and helped us to hire the right contractor. For others considering projects, we would highly recommend working with Departure Architecture.
Our master bath was in dire need of remodeling, so after we selected the tile, fixtures, and vanities, Jeremy put all the pieces together and created a master bath that we enjoy immensely. The project was completed in a timely fashion with a minimum of disruption to our daily schedule, which is not always the case with many contractors. I will definitely call Jeremy if I plan to do any further remodeling projects and I recommend him to anyone who is considering any construction projects around their home.
WTY worked with us on multiple tenant improvements and on an upgrade to a food production facility. Our experience was positive, Wayne is easy to work with, practical and has the proven experience. We look forward to working together again.
"New Deck to Replace my Old Deck" . I bought an older house that had deck in very poor condition sinking in some places due to bad footings, rotting joist, etc. I knew when I bought the house that I would building a new deck. I was in a situation where I was going to build a new deck and change the original layout. This deck was 15 feet off the ground and built over a day-light basement. The scope and size of my project required a city permit and approval. I hired Ogren Engineering to help with a structural design for a new cedar deck for my home. I worked directly with Scott Ogren, who took the time to explain some of the key structure aspects for the project I envisioned. Scott provided insight for the footings, materials, positioning, framing, drainage considerations, seismic requirements, etc. I walked away from the first visit with Scott feeling confident about the direction of my deck project. When Scott finished the engineering specs for the deck, his work was on time, The City approved the engineering plans, there were no surprises (just what I wanted). It is always great to work with a professional, who understood my needs. I had a excellent experience working with Scott Ogren. I would use Scott's services again and have recommended his services to others. Im happy to give him a positive review here. DIY Homeowner
We are in the process of remodeling our 1908 bungalow in Oakland, CA. The house has gone through various unfortunate design choices and shoddy workmanship. This (combined with the desire to insulate and rewire) has prompted us to perform more of a gut remodel. We had general ideas of what we wanted to accomplish with the project, but we had trouble synthesizing our ideas and updating the floor plan to make it more logical, especially in our kitchen (which is important because we love to cook). We turned to our friend Hiroki Abe for help and have no regrets. He has generated plans for the house, and performed a variety of design iterations, providing suggestions to maintain existing good features while coming up with great ideas to improve the difficult aspects of the house. He designs in revit, which allowed him to easily show us different views/angles from the interior of the home. This added perspective was very helpful compared to just a floor plan to help us understand how a space would look. Hiroki seems influenced by simple, clean designs (and his serious cooking skills!). His design for our bungalow has nicely blended appropriate modern touches but our goal to maintain the feel of the bungalow is intact. The design work has been hampered by our pace making decisions, but Hiroki has kept the process moving and in 3 months we now have a set of drawings that is a serious improvement on our original plans, and is ready for permitting and bidding work with our contractor. We will definitely keep Hiroki involved throughout the construction process. Please feel free to contact us for a reference if needed, or to look at our design.
