About the Company
At Precision Contracting, we’ve been committed to meeting or exceeding the highest standards in customer service and workmanship since 2005. We’ve been driven to bring your vision to life in creating a beautiful home that’s inspiring, functional and uniquely yours — that fits your lifestyle and your budget.
And that still continues today. Precision Contracting hasn’t gone anywhere — we’re just using a different name.
To meet the demand for true design-build services in Brockville and along the eastern seaway, we’re proud to announce we’ve merged with Amsted Design-Build, a company well-known in Ottawa for quality design and build services, renovations and custom homes.
Lindsay Haley, founder of Precision Contracting, and Steve Barkhouse, founder of Amsted Design-Build have a mutual respect and admiration for each other that goes back over a decade. They realized over the years that each had built organizations in neighbouring cities that were almost mirror images of one another — with similar core values, an excellent reputation, a dedication for high-quality construction, and integrity in everything they do.
We’ll continue to provide superior customer service and a finished project that exceeds your expectations. Our experienced local team of talented staff is still here, but now we offer an enhanced one-stop solution for homeowners looking to renovate or build a new home. With an in-house team of design professionals and construction experts working together, we have a more seamless process that delivers industry-leading results that saves time and money.
Together we now offer inspired designs and unparalleled craftsmanship from Ottawa to the seaway, and all points in between.
Established in 2005, Precision Contracting founder Lindsay Haley had a vision to provide clients with the highest customer service, excellent workmanship and an unwavering commitment to deliver the highest quality projects to completion. Over almost two decades, we’ve built a team of renovation and custom building experts with a desire to stay ahead of the curve in industry practices. With the combination of our experience and knowledge, we strove to be industry leaders in Brockville and Eastern Ontario.
Now, we team up with Amsted Design-Build to provide an enhanced service offering to all of our customers.
Amsted has the qualifications, the abilities and, most importantly, the commitment to provide the utmost personalized service — because adding comfort and value to your home is the service they’ve been trusted to provide for 30 years.
For each person, the design-build experience will be different, but it always starts by finding out what brings you comfort. Is it entertaining family and friends, cuddling up on the couch beside a roaring fire, relaxing with a book in a sun-drenched bay window, or cooking a giant pot of soup on a cold and blistery winter day? Whatever it is, these experiences make you, you. And being able to draw this out of you makes Amsted, Amsted. Our team is skilled at asking the questions, crafting the design and producing the quality that will leave you feeling like your home was meant for you.
Our Mission must be to exceed the expectations of our customers, whom we define as clients, partners, and fellow employees. We will accomplish this by committing to our shared values and by achieving the highest levels of customer satisfaction. In this way we will ensure that our profit, quality and growth goals are met.
