It has been a distinct pleasure working with Alkim Interior Contractors over the past several Months. His crew are prompt, courteous, hard working and abide by the most stringent safety rules. Scheduled work is done in a timely manner and communication with key personnel is carried out daily. Work is above industry standards and it was a near seamless renovation which covered three very different work areas. We are more than pleased with the results and would not hesitate to have them back for any future work we may have.
The purpose of this letter is to acknowledge our appreciation of a job well done. Our office contracted yourself for a job that involved the dismantling of 11 employee workstations and removal of carpet and then the actual renovation of laying new carpet and paint throughout. On top of this you were contracted to design and construct a reception area and then reassemble the existing workstations.
The timing and flexibility was critical for the fact that we had to continue managing the business of Dispatch and Inventory of package lubricants for Western Canada throughout the transition. Due to your flexibility and accommodation to meet our needs, the job was completed on schedule with no customer impact and no complaints from those employees inconvenienced by the renovation.
It has been several months since the renovation and we continue to get comments on the quality of work in your workmanship and supplies.
Your commitment to service and quality was very evident and I would welcome you to add us to your reference list for future customers.

I want to thank you for a job well done. The Alkim team finished our renovation project to complete satisfaction.
The project consisted of the removal of a couple of walls, adding and expanding existing offices, new plumbing, electrical and flooring.
Our equipment is extremely sensitive to dust and movement. With this in mind, Alkim still managed to complete the job on budget, and in fact ahead of schedule with very little disruption to our ongoing business.
The Alkim crew worked very well under our unique situation and remained courteous as well as keeping a neat and tidy work area at all times.
I look forward to working with Alkim in the future, and would highly recommend them.

In the spring of 1986, I began to put my plans into action relative to creating the "best possible Child Care Facility in Alberta".
In so doing, I first secured a space to lease and secondly designed the plans for the interior of this facility. I then contacted numerous contractors to speak to them about price, quality, timing etc. My husband and I knew almost the first time we spoke to Alfred Dohmann from ALKIM INTERIOR CONTRACTORS LTD. that this was the company who would help us begin our "dream".
Although their quotation was anything but the lowest we received, somehow Alfred instilled a confidence in us that he would deliver exactly what he promised and that we could "count on him".
Well we gambled on this decision and have never regretted that decision. During the first two or three years I had one or two things that I needed to call Alfred for, probably items or matters that Alfred’s company owed us no warranty or follow up on, but never once did Alfred say no or give me the feeling I was bothering him. In fact quite the contrary he immediately set out to help me solve whatever the minor concern was.
It’s now six years since Alfred constructed the interior of TENDER HEART CHILD CARE CENTER LTD. and still today we are proud of the job he and his employees or sub-contractors did for us.

We have been asked by the above noted, for a letter of reference.
It is very easy to write this letter, as Alfred has been a pleasure to work with. He not only listened to our concerns and challenges, but he offered solutions beyond what we may have had in mind. These solutions were always well thought out, well informed and consistently within our budget.
Our renovations were done during regular office hours, however, we experienced a minimal amount of inconvenience. The staff and contractors for our renovations were most professional.
We would not hesitate to contact Alfred (Alkim) for any other renovation projects.

We are pleased to provide a letter of reference based on work your company has completed for Russel Metals.
Specifically, the Renovation you did to convert a basement storage room into a company boardroom we use for business meetings with customers, suppliers and employees. This was a significant renovation project and we are very pleased with the work your company has done and the completed boardroom, I would not hesitate to recommend your company for construction and renovation projects or any prospective customers.
I would like to thank you for your assistance on this matter. In my opinion, the evidence that our occupational therapist (.....) gave on the costs of renovations to the (....) trailer was superior to that of the Plaintiffs’ nursing expert and, as such, I did not feel it was necessary to have to trouble you to give evidence on the issue. Thank you for your input on what was truly needed - it was obviously very helpful to us.
I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Alfred Dohmann and Alkim Interior Contractors Ltd.
Alkim recently completed our office condominium renovations in a professional and expert manner. Alfred and his associates kept the work on schedule during the entire time. They were helpful to us in every phase, by coordinating their efforts with other contractors on the project, responding to changes and providing recommendations.
They worked closely with myself before construction began and during, showing the work in progress to ensure everyone was on the same page.
Thank you for your hard work. Please feel free to use this letter as a professional reference.
This letter is in reference to Alkim Interior Contractors and the work they have performed for our company in providing access to, from and within homes for persons with mobility disabilities.
We have found that Alkim’s understanding of the needs of persons with mobility disabilities and the work performed by Alkim in this area to be very satisfactory. The dealings that they have had with both our clients and ourselves has been very professional.

As a rehabilitation counsellor, I am often asked which contractors have experience performing modifications for persons with disabilities. Therefore, over the years we have developed an informal list of companies who have approached CPA for information.
The Canadian Paraplegic Association cannot solely endorse any one contractor or company. From the time Alkim contacted CPA we have not had any complaints about their work and find them very approachable and qualified.
It is my understanding a new housing development is in the planning stages. CPA feels there is a need for more wheelchair accessible housing in Edmonton and supports any effort that will meet this goal.
We are writing this letter to thank you for a “job well done” as the general contractor for the renovation of the house we purchased for our disabled son. From the beginning, we felt this was a partnership. The give and take of suggestions and ideas and the open communication between us was maintained throughout the project. You really listened to our thoughts and ideas and incorporated them appropriately. We particularly appreciated your ideas. Your experience with handicapped housing and code requirements and your sensitivity towards the disabled led to several innovative approaches during the renovation. The cove flooring, baseboards and staircase are particularly impressive.
The budgetary process was clear every step of the way. Each aspect of the renovation was clearly budgeted and changes, additions and deletions were discussed up front. Although we went over budget, each addition added to the functionality and safety of the house. We agreed to all additional work and at no time did we feel left out of or surprised by the monetary results. Your method of presenting the project on a spreadsheet is clear and concise.
Our subcontractors were pleasant to work with and were proud of the quality of their work. The workplace was kept clean and safe. You are joy to work with; you are knowledgeable, upbeat and cheerful. You keep the project moving, all problems were quickly resolved and work was done in a timely manner.
Our son moved into his house September 1. It looks beautiful and functional We are looking forward to he and his roommates enjoying living there. Thank you.
