I have worked with GUNN on multiple projects over the past ten years, from small residential retrofits to complete office tower modernizations and they have proven to be an invaluable resource. From assisting in defining the initial project scope through the RFP, tendering and construction phases, GUNN’s attention to detail and industry expertise are second to none. Jerry Chang and his team also provide the rigorous financial reviews, timely communication and solid project management skills that are crucial when undertaking these types of multi-million dollar capital projects.
BCIT has worked with Gunn Consultants on many elevator modernization projects over the years. Most recently, we launched an initiative to install CCTV cameras in all of our elevator cabs. We retained Gunn to prepare tender specifications and turnkey manage the project with our assistance to coordinate the brief shutdowns required. Execution required the coordination and close collaboration of several parties, elevator contractor, security contractor, and IT network contractor. The project was delivered flawlessly in true turn key fashion. A budget that was expected to cover only half our elevator fleet, was stretched to complete the entire fleet due to efficiencies and savings realized during the work. All BCIT stakeholders are very pleased with the outcome!
GUNN were fantastic to work with from the early design stage through to Construction Documents and Project Administration. The knowledge and expertise they brought to the table was a crucial part in maintaining the project schedule. They were a valuable asset to have when working with our client to ensure the elevator requirements of the project were provided in a coordinated manner. I look forward to working with them on future projects.
GUNN is a great team to work with. They were instrumental in the unique design at TELUS Sky (boasting the fastest elevators in Western Canada) from start to finish. The dedication, responsiveness, and expertise they provide made them a preferred addition to our team not just on TELUS Sky but on many of our projects. I look forward to working with GUNN in the future.
Easily the best….Eric and his team know all the players in the game and provide excellent service.
GUNN Consultants and Blake were excellent to deal with. I felt that GUNN were experienced, provided quality oversight on the project and were readily available when I had any questions. I learned a lot about elevators and the modernization process. In the end, I feel confident that we got the best price for the project and will definitely work with GUNN on our future projects.
GUNN worked for us, and more importantly, with us to give us exactly what we wanted and needed. They were our expertise and our muscle. GUNN shouldered our problem leaving us the ability and peace of mind to be able to look further down the road at other work we need to do, knowing that our elevators are being taken care of, problem solved.
I would definitely recommend the use of an elevator consultant for an elevator project like ours in the future, as the use of a consultant really helped to reduce the strata council's workload, while at the same time helped to avoid potential contractual disputes. Without GUNN, it would have been difficult for the strata council to formalize the scope of work, perform a thorough bid evaluation, or even have a strong contract with appropriate technical performance requirements.
I have used GUNN Consultants for a number of years to assist with the assessment of damages to elevators as a result of damage that leads to an insurance claim. GUNN is always professional and provides an accurate and unbiased accounting of the damages. They provide timely feedback on damage estimates and assist with working with the elevator repair vendor to ensure costs are maintained and repairs are completed in a timely manner. Great work GUNN Consultants!
The personnel involved is very pleasant to deal with and very knowledgeable. They explain the whole process and answer any questions. They help the "general public" understand how the elevators work, identify possible issues and their main causes and will also walk you through renovation projects.
On behalf of the Condominium VR1397, please accept our thanks for the excellent work performed on the renovation of our elevator. A difficult and long-winded job, not your fault at all, that appears to be fully satisfactory. The performance of, and relationship, with you was exemplary and we appreciated it.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for your recent consulting services regarding our major elevator upgrade. We are pleased that your Request for Proposals and the ensuing contract issued to West Coast Elevators Services Ltd. was conducted in an efficient, professional and financially responsible manner.
