builder services

Amparo Findlay Interiors is a residential design firm based in Cambridge, Ontario. We work with builders and contractors to deliver a signature design service. This reduces stress and complexity during the design phase of a project and minimizes surprises during the build phase.

Builders often approach me because they feel frustrated by their client’s inability to devote time to the design process, especially when they themselves are busy with construction planning.

These clients want calm, welcoming and relaxing spaces to enjoy with their families. For builders who want to deliver on this promise, a designer can help bridge the gap, facilitating communication and ensuring opportunities are seized.

A designer’s role includes ongoing coordination with other consultants, vendors and sub-trades to monitor compliance with the design. This provides value for both builder and owner, ensuring a steady and smooth schedule and adherence to budget.

  • A commitment to meaningful design. I create impactful interiors with classic style, contemporary vision and luxurious touches.

benefit to builders & renovators

We hope that you can maintain a relationship with homeowners that reach out to you but are not quite ready to proceed with the Contract Negotiations. Their ideas are not fully developed into workable solutions and connecting them with a reliable design team gives you an advantage.

We are professionals and our commitment to delivering quality designs communicated through comprehensive and accurate documents is our priority. You can be certain that the design documents created by our team will fulfill your needs and assist with a seamless construction experience.

Amparo and I have worked on numerous projects together, and I can emphatically state that if any work is to be needed by a client, pre or post signing in the design realm, Amparo has exceeded my expectations on all occasions.

When you care about reputation and integrity as pillars to a business, you care about the lives of those you touch. We build homes not houses. Amparo lives this motto.

Amparo has not only a grasp of building sciences, she quickly reads a client and bridges what can be, with what should be.

– William O’Neil (Project Manager)
