    “We love our new store! It is a beautiful space but the time Keith spent helping plan it out has made work so much more enjoyable. Most people say that the store has a nice “flow” due to the curved cases and walls. We like that clients don’t walk up to the same case every time. We work with clients all around the store – and they constantly see new merchandise."

    “Ruth and the team at GRID/3 made our dream of constructing and designing our own building a reality. We shopped several different designers and, without a doubt, GRID/3 was the best fit for us. Their team is creative, intelligent, flexible and kind. They worked with us and gave us options that aligned with our situation and needs. At GRID/3, you aren’t treated like a number; you are treated like a part of their family. Most importantly, they listened to us and paid attention to what we needed. As a result, our new store truly reflects our story and personality, and it has helped our business grow significantly. I can’t say enough how grateful we are to them for their help, expertise and guidance. Whether you are looking to design and build a new store, remodel your existing store or simply want a more personal and fulfilling relationship with your designer, do yourself a favour and go to Ruth and the GRID/3 team. It will be one of the best decisions you ever make!"

    “We were very fortunate to work with the team from GRID/3 on three projects in the last 11 years. Every project was different and varied from space improvement to remodeling to a major interior/exterior renovation of a hundred year old building.

    Ruth and Keith bring vast knowledge, experience and professionalism to every project. It was amazing to see how they brought our dreams and ideas to life with great attention paid to every detail. That is priceless!

    There is no question in our minds who would handle project #4 when it comes to it."
