Testimonials

Over the past 15 years, I've had the distinct pleasure of working with Darryl Muir on many different projects at the Air Canada Building located at 355 Portage Ave. Recently, we partnered with Darryl and his team on one of the toughest and complex projects that has ever been completed in this facility. Our newest client, Canadian Tire, leased 28,000 square feet of space. Canadian Tire has built a state-of-the-art Cloud 9 Digital Innovation Centre, with over several million invested in facilities, infrastructure and computer hardware. This project had many challenges and Darryl's lead project manager Keith Manary was outstanding from start to finish. Keith's superior communication skills and in-depth scheduling allowed us to not only meet the extremely difficult timeframe, but also to keep the budget intact. Durango's sub trades are all first class and very professional.

River City Ford had the pleasure of working with Durango Construction over the past year as we renovated the second floor of our building and service area. The level of professionalism and attention to detail shown by Darryl and Keith saved us money and time. We really appreciated the level of communication to keep us involved at all times. Any time Darryl or Keith thought something could be better, they provided us with ideas and options.

Durango will be the contractor we use for our future construction and we will recommend them to anyone looking for a contractor.

The revitalization of the old tropical house (Toucan Ridge) commenced in August of 2010 with the grand opening occurring in April of 2011. This $3.1 Million project included typical fixed price electrical, mechanical and structural work but also included a "design on the fly" revitalization of the free flight exhibit area. Durango Construction's ability to communicate, problem solve and deliver cost-effective solutions provided Assiniboine Park Conservancy with the best possible solution and partnership that successfully delivered this project.

To meet the workspace requirements for future growth of Richardson International Limited, the decision was made to increase the size of our head office located in the Richardson Building in Winnipeg…Durango submitted competitive pricing and has met the deliverables expected. We were very satisfied with the quality of work, cleanliness on the job site throughout the construction process… Since then, Richardson International has maintained a long-standing business relationship with Durango.

I have responsibility for head office premises at Richardson International Limited and project management related to this project and can attest to Durango's professionalism and high standard of workmanship. I would not hesitate to recommend Darryl and his team at Durango.

Garden City Shopping Centre has been fortunate to have Durango Construction provide their expertise in project and construction management on a number of projects. These have ranged in scope from small projects, such as bringing exit corridors up to building code, to larger expansion projects where the space required a complete renovation. Knowledge in plumbing, mechanical, structural and fire code was essential to the completion of these projects.

Tenants at the Centre have also used Durango Construction for the complete renovation of their stores, again with very successful results. Durango Construction has extensive contacts which not only include other trades, but designers and architects as well. Durango Construction offers a very complete package for any type of construction project you may be considering.

I am currently the Property Manager of Garden City Shopping Centre and Kildonan Crossing Shopping Centre.

I have engaged the services of Durango Construction on dozens of occasions over the past 12 years on both very large projects and smaller ones.

Durango Construction, in particular Darryl Muir who is my direct contact, is one of the most dependable contractors I have dealt with in my 15 years in business. This company can always be counted on to fulfill their obligations on all projects.

Durango Construction has completed several large projects for the landlord. Some examples include all landlord work required for the construction of GoodLife Fitness, New Directions, PetSmart, TD Bank, Joey's Only and many other upgrades of tenants either moving in or moving out at both shopping centres.

I would not hesitate to recommend Durango Construction for any construction project required.

I have had the opportunity to work closely with Darryl Muir on several projects at Portage Place and St. Vital Centre. These projects ranged from large to very small and the level of service always remained the same. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Durango Construction as a provider of any type of construction or renovation project.
