.............It is with great pleasure and utmost confidence that I provide this letter of reference for Pelling Industries.  Since early in 2004, when we engaged Shawn Pelling to install a couple of windows, until mid summer 2004, when he completed the major remodel we had decided to undertake, we have been impressed and pleased with our choice of contractor.  It is perhaps relevant to note that we began with a small project specifically to decide if we had found a contractor with whom we would entrust the much bigger project to come; once begun, there was never any doubt.

Three qualities were important as we evaluated our project and the contractor; professionalism, reliability, and, ultimately, the quality of the finished product.  And in each of these areas, Shawn proved an exceptional choice.

Professionalism - From the first discussions about scope and cost right through to the final settlement, Shawn Pelling excelled.  He was most attentive as we described what we were trying to do, taking great care to understand our desired outcomes, and offering suggestions when we asked.  He kept us informed of project status and we discussed project cost regularly. Shawn proved to be accurate, thorough, and forthcoming.

Reliability - This a is simple thing to summarize.  Shawn did what he said when he said he would do it.  By keeping us posted with regularity, there were no surprises.  And when new things came up, we discussed them and got them resolved.  Shawn was always careful to make sure he knew what we wanted and was more than willing to share with us how he intended to deliver.  Thus, scope changes, for example, were easy to get through.

Quality - We are aware of far too many projects that start well but never seem to finish.  Shawn is a finisher.  The quality of the finish work is exemplary and visitors who see it universally comment on this aspect of the work.  Quality finish work is not always possible if the infrastructure work is inadequate.  We saw all of it weekly and it was Shawn's attention to detail, the quality assurance reviews of his subcontractor's and employee's work, and his insistence on quality throughout that make that final quality possible.  And when it is over, he stands behind his work.

We often recommend Shawn Pelling and Pelling Industries to friends who inquire about our project and are considering their own.  And it is without hesitation that we can provide this letter of reference.  We would not hesitate for a second if/when we have any other work to be done.

……..I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Pelling of Pelling Industries during the spring and summer of 2007.  Mr. Pelling’s concrete division was the sub trade secured to complete the concrete foundation of the new Squamish Wal-Mart in Squamish, BC.


The concrete foundation for this project was an intricate engineered seismic design of concrete footings and “tie beams” designed to withstand the pressures of an earthquake.  Due to complex design and site conditions, we encountered a number of redesigns during the early and mid stages of construction.  Pelling Industries easily adapted the changes and presented us with very fair pricing on change orders to keep our project within budget.  Thanks in part to his hard work the project was completed on time and on budget.


I enjoyed working with Mr. Pelling, his site foremen and crew, and look forward to any future endeavors with them as my concrete sub trade.

…….Pelling was contracted as one of the four different concrete crews working on Quest University.  Pelling’s specific contract was to construct some architectural concrete feature walls, their contract value was roughly $130,000.


I am pleased to advise you that Pelling’s workmanship far exceeded our expectations.  The tradesmen that completed the work were highly competent and conscientious, and further to this, their scope was completed within schedule constraints of the project, during extreme winter conditions, without a single deficiency.  Their concrete work has frequently been referred to by our project architect as the best concrete on the entire project.


We would be pleased to use Pelling again where a high standard of quality is expected.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
