Michal J. Cerny is the founder, President and CEO of Ambassador Fine Custom Homes Inc. and has two professional designations in Construction.
With his professional designation as PMP, he brings 35 years’ experience in multi-site project management and operations across North America, along with an Honours Graduate in Construction Project Management.
For those who are well versed in construction techniques and the construction industry, can appreciate the value of what it means to be Gold Certified by the Canadian Construction Association.
Michal’s second professional designation as P. GSC was presented to him by the Canadian Construction Association in early 2011. This is an incredible achievement that is bestowed upon only a few individuals (6000 across Canada).
He has designed and built all aspects of homes; every detail from floor plans to elevations, custom cabinetry, stone details, wrought iron work, plaster work, staircases, right down to hand picking the marble slabs so as to ensure consistency of grain, veining and quality throughout the house.
He has a wealth of knowledge in Building Science, excels at Building Structure and personally oversees the entire construction process, ensuring that the various trades and artisans are in fact installing the various materials and supplies as per the Construction Documentation using best practices, techniques and methods. A full time Ambassador site supervisor is dedicated to the build of your home; pending upon the size of the project we often share his time between two builds.
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.
