We are extremely pleased to recommend Dolyn Developments Inc.
In June 2015, we contracted Dolyn to finish the construction of Heritage Funeral Complex - Complexe funeraire Inc. Dolyn was strongly recommended to us. After our first meeting with the President, Doug Burnside, we knew that we would be in good hands and from that moment on, we felt confident that his firm would make our dream project come true.
After 4 months under Dolyn's guidance, we were moving in to our beautiful new building that makes us very proud. Dolyn made the extra mile to help us achieve our project. The fact that we could rely on the honesty and integrity of that company, it took a lot of stress off our shoulders. Dolyn's employees were pleasant to work with and we appreciated all the help we received from the accounting department.

We have recently completed a joint venture development on Hunt Club Drive in Ottawa, the final phase of which was of approximate size of 50,000 sq ft. large scale retail space.
Dolyn Developments was an invited, then successful bidder in executing this project and we were very pleased with their handling of it - from Field Representatives, Project Managers and their office staff. All was done within the set time frame inclusive of partial fit up work as required for some of our tenants. The project had no conflicts and minimal extra costs. They were very congenial and cooperative with us.
We know them to have been an active General Contractor and Construction Manager for over 28 years in the city and enjoy a solid industry reputation with owners, consultants and trades.
We have no hesitation in recommending them to you for your upcoming projects.

It has been a pleasure working with your Team and especially with you, Doug as the Construction Manager and James South as your onsite supervisor for this complete Rehabilitation of Rideau Cottage. You have on your staff some very skilled carpenters, which paid attention to details, a quality which was very much appreciated by our Official Residences Technical Staff and our Heritage Expert.
All who have visited Rideau Cottage can appreciate the efforts and the improvements that this rehabilitation has achieved, the increased level of comfort for future residents and for the NCC, the energy conservation.
I want to thank your Team for their major contribution and devotion to this project until the very end to ensure the success of this unique project.

It is my pleasure to recommend Dolyn Developments.
We engaged Dolyn Developments in 2014 to execute a design-build project that was unique and new to Canada.
The complexity of the project required skilled and effective project management, something that Dan Carley carried out with a great degree of competency. He was responsive and proactive both in terms of mitigating issues and presenting practical and cost-effective solutions to issues as they arose.
The trades hired by Dolyn to carry out the work delivered work of a high caliber, under the supervision of an outstanding site foreman, James South, who was accessible at all times, and managed the work of the trades effectively and efficiently.
Overall, we were pleased with the outcome of the project.

Mr. Burnside and his team of professional consultants managed the project through the city processes expertly and delivered to us a building on budget, and within the desired time frame.
Dolyn was also very useful in assessing future tenants' needs and our capability of satisfying them within our building, and further was very instrumental in working with financiers to help bring about a satisfactory end to a rather complicated matter.
We are very pleased with the services that Dolyn Developments Inc., provided and are extremely pleased with the building, which now houses our dental clinic and numerous tenants.

Dolyn Developments Inc. was the constructor for a new two storey Shopper's Drug Mart located at the corner of Bank St. & Sunnyside Ave.
The building was composed of a structural steel frame and deck on a concrete foundation. The walls are brick veneer on a steel studback-up wall in combination with glazed aluminum curtain wall cladding. The building covers most of the site making it a difficult site to manage, plus it is tight to the street property line and a minimal distance from the neighbouring property line. The site was further encumbered with heavy pedestrian and vehicular traffic which was maintained throughout construction.
Dolyn professionally handled these challenges and completed the project in accordance with the schedule and met all the demands and requests of the owner on time.
