"WSP has worked with Terlin Construction for nearly 20 years on a number of projects ranging from retail stores and office fit-ups, to medical and dental clinics. We have always found their workmanship, service, and technical support to be of the highest quality. As well, their management and dedication to their projects is exceptional."

Mike Fitzgerald, Manager M&E Fit-up WSP Canada Inc

"Terlin helped create a dental clinic my partners and I can be proud of. Terlin respected our budget by offering alternatives to our design plan and they exceeded our expectations by completing our project ahead of schedule. They were accessible throughout the construction period and we were impressed by the high quality of workmanship they provided. Terlin has an exceptional team capable of delivering superior results."

Dr. Manish Mistry, Gloucester Dental Centre

"What stood out was Terlin’s commitment to making sure I was completely satisfied with every step of the process. In particular, I was impressed with their willingness to resolve any issues that I had and be available to discuss things over the phone. As a dentist, working full time and trying to build a new office can be a stressful experience. Having the project manager to oversee the entire project made a big difference!"

Dr. William Vu, Ottawa

"When they (Terlin Construction) built my office last year, they were given the big task of building a modern dental office in a very tight construction schedule. Not only did they deliver on time, but they worked great with the architect, all of the trades and subcontractors, and myself whenever I had any questions or concerns. Ultimately, their professionalism produced a fantastic office that I was very happy with and that I am proud of."

Dr. Sam Lee, Ottawa
