Ambassador Fine Custom Homes Inc. is a renowned multi-award-winning Design/Build firm with 35 years’ experience in multi-site project management and operations across North America. It has in-house engineers, architectural technicians, PMP and P.GSC by Canadian Construction Association. Their fine custom homes and boutique custom renovations have been featured in magazines, newspapers and TV.
Ambassador has designed approximately 65% of the homes it has built. From contemporary, transitional to traditional, their interior designs are only surpassed by their exterior designs.
The streamlined process of custom designing the client’s home with the actual builder saves both time and money. The Design process simultaneously considers how the build process will take place, eliminating architectural changes due to structural requirements.
Ambassador enjoys working with third party architects, offering the client the peace of mind that the builder is collaborating with the architect to achieve both a unique design and best built home. Experience offers opportunities and by having designed and built homes, Ambassador can offer invaluable input into the structural and design process, well before a shovel hits the ground.
Many of the awards that Ambassador has won, including Best Custom Home in Canada, recognize the sophisticated building techniques and quality of the fine exterior and interior finishes that are synonymous with Ambassador.
Michal J. Cerny is the founder, President and CEO of Ambassador Fine Custom Homes Inc. and has two professional designations in Construction.
Ambassador Fine Custom Homes Inc. has been working with some of their trades for almost two decades, while many others over a decade. They have spent countless amount of energy working on these relationships, coaching and working with the trades in a true team like relationship so as to elevate the quality of workmanship to what has become known as the Ambassador Standard.
Whilst they are loyal to their trades, their priority is and always will be with the client. Each of the 164 work breakdown structure unit line items in the Budget is carefully scrutinized by getting quotations from other trades/fabricators/suppliers/artisans, comparing the pricing to those currently used with a view of keeping everyone honest; not assuming they will get the next project, the costing transparent and keeping the integrity in the process.
There is a flurry of excitement and anticipation by the client as the construction gets started. Months of planning are actually coming to fruition. Constant communication from Ambassador Fine Custom Homes Inc.’s staff continues via emails, texts and phone calls as well as onsite meetings. Cashflow projections, interior design decision making deadlines and progress reports are amongst the myriad of subject matters that will keep you ahead of the curve. No last minute decisions or payment requirements. Everything planned upfront and presented with plenty of notice so that your custom build can be the enjoyable experience it should be.
