Our Process

What does a successful renovation mean to you?

Our goal is to make the renovation process as easy as possible by resourcing and managing the entire project from conception, through construction, to final completion. As a vital member of the LD&A team, you will work closely with your designer, project manager and site supervisor to ensure the project’s success. To give you an idea of what to expect, we’ve outlined our entire process – focusing on the key roles and milestones that occur along the way.
