About John Willmott Architect, Inc.
Architecture Firm based in Oakville, Ontario
In establishing his own firm, John Willmott satisfied his long time vision that brought together his passion for architecture and his entrepreneurial sensibility. Since forming JWA in 2000, John has built the firm using three founding principles -to provide thoughtful design, complete documentation and extraordinary personal service to our clients. The strength of our firm is rooted in our commitment to our founding values. Your design and building experience should be enjoyable. We expect that our clients will advocate our services without hesitation and excelling in our service is the only way to achieve this.
We use the word “thoughtful” because it suits us well. To us it means design that considers many things - creativity, meets our clients’ requirements, environmentally considerate, budget conscious and technically sound. We are well aware that not every project is an award winner but we strive to make our designs honest responses to our clients’ goals. Listening to our clients and working with their own ideas is core strength. Of course we bring our professional experience and creative mind to the project sorting through many concepts to formulate cohesive designs. We view each project as a partnership with our clients. Our portfolio is full of diverse design themes and architectural style, which is a testament to our adaptability and dedication to our client’s goals.
There are many types of documentation required for a building project: agreements, sketches, construction drawings and specifications, budgets, contracts and contract administration. While we strive to improve continually, our staff is trained to ensure all of our drawings and other instructions are accurate, sufficiently detailed and without contradiction. Our philosophy is simple: clarity and completeness will promote accurate pricing, easier construction, minimize difficulties in the field and ensure a quality of design and detail that your project deserves.
Extraordinary Personal Service
Privileged. This is how we feel about working for our clients. Personal service goes beyond normal professionalism. Good design and complete documentation is not enough. Each of our clients receives the personal attention of John Willmott and his staff. Prompt reply to phone messages, delivering on schedule, taking the time to explain anything that may be of concern are typical examples that demonstrate our commitment to our clients. We take pride in being approachable and available to help make your building experience an enjoyable one.
