To whom it may concern,


In November 2018, the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario York Region selected Cambria Design Build Ltd. as contractor for the construction of our home office in Aurora Ontario.

With the project completed, I can attest to the professionalism and dedication to detail that Cambria exhibited throughout their work. Rick King and all of his associates worked diligently to ensure the quality of the construction and solved problems efficiently and cost consciously.

Their honesty and integrity to provide the maximum quality product was evident throughout all of our dealings with Cambria. We could not be happier with our new home.

I would unreservedly recommend Cambria to anyone looking for an honest, quality oriented Contractor.
Yours truly,


David Clegg
President ETFO-York Region

I manage the Transportation Studio at NORR Architects & Engineers Limited in Toronto. NORR provides architecture, engineering and project management/consulting services to the Greater Toronto Airports Authority and their tenants.

We’ve worked on numerous tenant improvement programs for HMS Host and SSP America (food & beverage concessionaires) at Pearson International Airport over the last 5 years. These programs included renovations and rebranding of existing restaurants and kiosks, and construction of new facilities. Each of these development projects were executed in active airport terminal buildings and environments with extremely tight deadlines. Cambria has adapted to the strict rules for construction in secure areas of the airport.

Cambria has become familiar with the Pearson International Airport buildings and building systems, the clients, the land lord stakeholders and their expectations. Cambria has also established themselves as reliable and trustworthy, and have developed relationships with GTAA stakeholders which has allowed them to navigate the permitting and construction processes effectively and efficiently. They often and readily adapt to site conditions and changes in direction as necessary to meet the objectives of our common clients and of the GTAA.

I would gladly recommend Cambria to a new client and assure you that Cambria would help you achieve your objectives.

On behalf of the South East Toronto Family Health Team, it is with great pleasure we write this letter of recommendation for Cambria Design Build.We first started our relationship with Cambria in February 2011 when they were contracted to build our new multi‐storey medical building in Toronto. Since day one, Cambria has demonstrated a professional approach to our project and has done meticulous work, using sub‐contractors that also have delivered in high quality work. Having regular bi‐weekly meetings with the project team at Cambria was also a key element in keeping us updated about any potential change orders and variations in the timelines – these meetings were great in allowing us to troubleshoot any issues that may have risen.

Even though we had some unanticipated challenges during the construction project, Cambria was able to maintain the efficiency of the development and their attention to the specifics of the construction, as well as proper scheduling of the sub‐contractors, was remarkable. We also appreciated their flexibility and suggestions during the construction process as we continually added changes to the building, starting with the inclusion of tenant space.

On a personal note, the main project team of Matt Twigge, Dominic Salvati and Rick King were great to work with and we would highly recommend Cambria Design Build for any future projects.
