DO NOT TRUST THEM. We signed a contract on May 03, 2017. We payed all accordingly. They gave a completion schedule of three weeks. They asked permission to work 24/7 to be able to accomplish the timetable they gave. There was NEVER 24/7, there was never not even 6 hours per day.
However, there were MANY EXCUSES since day one. We are on second quarter of August/2017. They have abandoned the job. We have even paid in advance half of the Third Payout, which was subject to the project completion. So they owe money back apart of all the chaos they have caused. As our property is of hotel business, we had many cancellation, many bad reviews, many upset guests etc all caused by the terrible impression left by the mess of the abandoned work.
Therefore: apart of the money they owe back; their irresponsibility caused a terrible income loss to our property, not only momentary, but impacting on the image of the business for not less than 2 years. Not less than 2 years for sure (minimum length bad reviews made from our guest will remain online); also, the costs to finalize the incomplete job left is another money gap they owe us.
As we are fair people, we cannot complain about the quality of the partial work that has been done. If they had finished it as the agreed schedule, even with few reasonable lag that happens, there was nothing to complain about. However, a job supposed to be done in three weeks has been abandoned after 4 months of playing around only to get the payment parcels.
They were fooling around with one excuse after another and sending the invoice to get another parcel of the payment. We fell for it like totally fools for three months making the payments, believing in those excuses and promises. So be aware: when Mr. Liam Buck arriving seeming very professional, that is only acting. They were not even professional to make a proper schedule before signing the contract. There were so many mistakes on it. They were not even sure if a building permit would be necessary. We should have suspected from then. But we fell for his pretending will to take the work seriously.
Unfortunately we cannot go back in time and change all the trouble our business is suffering in consequence of that. At least we can alert other to not make the same mistake.
Status Construction Ltd. is sorry to hear about your issues stated in this review. Unfortunately because many of these claims and statements are falsified, which we are shocked to discover, we would like to arrange the efforts to resolve any issues you may have.
As stated throughout the whole project since you refused hiring our company for the design or permitting process to "save costs" we had no ability to correct the issues in the projects drawings. With many efforts to correct the multiple issues of defective electrical, plumbing and structural problems in your building, our services worked to ensure all installations of new services were safe and brought up to code standards. We have provide you with several statements and documents from ESA and our certified electricians about the requirements needed to upgrade your electrical from the hazardous environment you previously.
Structurally our crews had to work on increasing the floor strength, ceilings and correcting fireproofing wall areas to meet code standards. Again these were all areas we did not up charge fees to help fit their project budget. When asked to install devices supplied by the clients we turned it down due to un supplied installation instructions and asked them to hire another contractor for this technical installation needed.
We offered several companies to work on extra add on's but Mr. Aslam and his staff refused because costs were to expensive. Unfortunately they chose several times to take a "cheaper" approach and we could no longer sacrifice cutting our costs any longer. We completed all structural and major renovations and asked the client to resume the technical installs with the approved contractor therefore not requiring us to charge a management costs.
We worked around the clients restricted hours, constantly working around customers and attempting to reduce intrusion to public areas as well as setting tiles with customers travelling through work areas because their is no other entrance or exit? Status Construction Ltd. worked in all efforts to make this project work but Mr. Aslam and the "staff" of Saint Lawrence Residence made it nearly impossible to complete.
They have not paid in full for the project, nor have they paid the final amounts for the trades that we hired to complete the work already done. This was a $60,000 project that easily if any other construction firm would have charged double with added fees.
We have not asked Mr. Aslam for charges of lost work, or reputation slander, solely to pay the settled amount owed to the trades that have completed the difficult work at his establishment.
I submitted my project on Trusted Pros website. Liam from Status Construction contacted me and came out for a site visit. He submitted a quote and a timeline for the construction of the Garage. I agreed to proceed and they arrived on schedule to excavate for the foundation.
Once excavation was complete, they formed and poured the foundation a few days later and exceeded my expectations. The base was better than I had specified and the reinforcement and pad thickness was also better than I had specified. They also came the next day and saw cut the pad as well.
After the pad cured a few days, they sent in a framing team and erected the garage in two days, Once again, the framing was done and they materials they used exceeded my plans. In addition, they framed the Garage so I had way more head room than I expected to have.
The people working for Status Construction were very nice and a pleasure to have on site. During the construction Project, Liam (Project Lead) and the President (Tino) came by several times to check on the project and ensure everything was going well.
The Garage was inspected by the building department and approved. I am very happy with Status Construction and they did a great job for me!

We look forward to the possible addition to your home next year!
