“SSDG made us feel very welcome. As first timers to store design, they helped all the way.  SSDG took on board our vision and produced a retail space that we are very proud of. We regularly get comments on the design, fit out, colours and decor. As this is a new brand to Canada, our visual brand presence is very important. SSDG have helped us stand out from the crowd.

Thank you to Julie, Vicky and the team.  You did a wonderful job.”

BGC Engineering

“The design details and tactful architecture aspects of every floor blew me away. The staircase connecting all the levels, the wooden pieces, the glass throughout, the open but homey concept, the library, the lunch room!, the tartan touches, the wall art, reception, the different light shades as you go down each floor. I’m still in awe of the entire office and thank you for making it feel so ‘us’. It feels much more connected and the good vibes are definitely felt all throughout. Thank you so much for making the team feel like we are home. Truly amazing work.”

Blackburn Young Office Solutions

“We recently worked with the team from SSDG on the design and construction of our new office furniture showroom. Their team worked with our requirements and created a design concept that captured the very essence of our corporate identity. Timing was critical – SSDG’s experience allowed their designers to efficiently guide us through the process; taking us from the conceptual stage through to implementation without losing focus of our business objectives.”

“The final result has been an overwhelming success!  With the positive feedback from our customer base, along with the renewed motivation of our own team, our new downtown showroom has provided us a platform for our business to grow in ways previously not possible. We sincerely thank Susan, Kenna, Kim and the rest of the SSDG team for their support, hard work, and dedication to the success of our project!”

It’s hard to believe that most of this space was an old warehouse just a few months ago, look at it now!”

It is a great place to be.”

Seymour Medical Clinic

With a few meetings and our suggestion of a west coast ‘Asian’ interior design, Keath and his team delivered a fabulous project. Our staff, patients and general public were amazed with the transformation to a zen-like atmosphere.”

All budgets and deadlines were met with no problems, and the finished product is outstanding. The redesign has received rave reviews from our membership, and we could not be more pleased with how it turned out. I would not hesitate to recommend SSDG Interiors.”

iQmetrix

“The folks at SSDG were really great to work with. I liked the modern, minimalist style they went for with for our office. They brought us some really great ideas and they were as passionate about the project as our staff was.”

Christopher Krywulak
President and CEO, iQmetrix

“I felt SSDG succeeded in the use of minimalist palette, the juxtaposition of various textures against white, the physical allocation for interactive screens (which is the nature of our XQ business) which all led to the creation of an open, bright, comfortable and social place. Since this is our head office and the majority of our business partners’ first impression would be similar to mine, I felt that we needed to continue with that look and feel through our branding elements, our website, et cetera.”

Alen Puaca
Creative Director, iQmetrix

 


 

Fraser Health

“Susan Steeves and her SSDG team were instrumental in orchestrating a major transformational change for Fraser Health Authority in the Central City Project. The challenge was to create work spaces to accommodate new work styles and achieving a large real estate consolidation in the process. The result is a creative planning solution that gave teams privacy and a strong feeling of community, while providing collaborative spaces throughout to facilitate open communication. These changes encourage the younger workforce to work how and where it works best for them. It also encourages the older, experienced staff to be more accessible and use technology to a greater extent. I highly recommend SSDG for office projects requiring innovative work environments that acknowledge today’s new work styles.”

Larry Harder
Director Capital Projects, Fraser Health

Prospera Credit Union

“I have worked with SSDG for about 15 years now and have always found them to have a unique ability to document and understand the functional requirements of a space and incorporate this into their design. They place high values on customer input and design the space to give the atmosphere that is desired. They work well within the assigned budget and are sensitive to timelines. SSDG is flexible and make changes that are requested during the construction process. The branch that they designed for us at Delair Road is a new branch prototype that has numerous positive comments from staff and members alike.  Another job done well!”

Keith McCarthy, CFM
Manager, Property and Premises, Prospera Credit Union

“The layout of the Delair branch is much more relationship focused, which our members appreciate as it makes them feel at home when they visit. At the same time, the new location in the heart of Sumas has provided us with a stunning flagship branch within the growing East Abbotsford community that is helping us to attract new members.”

Dan Whalley
Vice President of Branch Operations, Prospera Credit Union

 


 

Rogers CityTV

“Our favourite design feature in our Sportsnet relocation project is without a doubt, our new staff lounge. Despite our budget constraints, SSDG was able to transform an old windowless storage room into a sleek and modern fully functional staff lounge and kitchen.  Not only has this area become a popular eating and social area for staff but for management as well.

SSDG worked quickly to access our needs and wants.  They provided sketches, samples and chose interesting materials, fixtures and fittings.  What was equally impressive was the relationship between SSDG and their trades/specialist, everyone worked together as one team to take our project from inception to completion. “
