Client Testimonials


The Greenland Group (Greenland) was introduced to Communitech in 2013. This letter is to acknowledge the importance of this proactive joint venture and to indicate our strong interest in future project partnerships with Greenland and other network members.

Greenland is now supporting other joint initiatives with Communitech. These leading-edge information technology partners will include other private sector members with the Communitech network, as well as Ontario government agencies and First Nation communities. These projects are intended to develop commercialized products and services involving the Greenland Group and other Communitech partners and to enable new Canada-wide related collaborations.

Moriyama & Teshima Architects

On behalf of Moriyama & Teshima Architects, I would like to thank you for your high level of competence and involvement expressed in the design process on the Keele Street Public School Addition and Renovation project… I felt you were integral and instrumental in coming in and taking the project from an ill-fated design…to design completion, tender and the approvals stage. You showed high levels of knowledge and understanding in your field, and your thoroughness and professionalism have led to the success of this project to date. I am thoroughly satisfied in the way you designed the services system, dealt with authorities having jurisdiction, and for your recommendations regarding budgetary concerns.

I would not hesitate in recommending you as a civil engineering consultant on any further project I am involved with.
