Barbara is amazing! From our first meeting through to completion her attention to detail and hands-on approach made our renovation a breeze. She has fantastic design expertise and was wonderful at helping us choose options. All of her trades people are excellent. But the main thing is she truly cared about our project. I highly recommend her!

Barbara is the best! She made our renovation incredibly smooth and so satisfying. She helped me think through the ideas I already had for our space, and she brought her expertise in so many areas. Barbara works in an efficient, detail-oriented, caring, and thoughtful way. She has great taste, and unique ideas. She was able to integrate many goals I had for our school location, and prioritize to meet our budget limitations, and the needs of our staff and students. I would highly recommend her services.

As an expanding not for profit organization, we had the challenging task of transforming our existing office to accommodate our growing team while keeping costs low.

Barbara’s innovative ideas and designs were instrumental to achieving what our office space is today. Throughout the process, Barbara really listened to our wants and needs, offered her invaluable recommendations, and created designs that exceeded our expectations. The end result was a plan that was very cost effective and a new office that we are really proud to be in.

What impressed me the most was Barbara’s passion and devotion to us; she really went the extra mile to help us achieve our goals. It was truly a pleasure working with her and I would not hesitate to recommend Vancouver Better Offices to anyone.

Barbara has designed my offices several times over the past 7 years. We recently expanded and I needed to move the company into new and bigger office space. I hired Barbara and her team to renovate the new space in order to accommodate our growing team, and I wanted a fresh, bright and fun space for our employees. I also wanted to re-use a lot of our old office furniture and Barbara was instrumental in managing the new space to accommodate our custom furniture, which really helped keep the budget down to a manageable level. We are extremely happy with the end result. Barbara has a high level of professionalism and an amazing eye for detail. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone!

One of the challenges of our new brick, post and beam space was its open concept.

Knowing that we were working with a limited budget, Barbara was able to deliver a design plan that accentuated the architectural features of our space without breaking the budget. These included seemingly simple or small things that were less expensive to implement but enhanced our space much more than the expensive solution. She has that eye and ability (you might say that “je ne c’est quoi”) to look at a room and know precisely how to make it look and function better. Her services were absolutely indispensable to us. We got tremendous value for money.

Initially, we had an idea of what our basic space planning needed to be, however we definitely required the assistance of a professional consultant in the field of office design to assure that our space would facilitate all of our daily business activities. We thus selected Vancouver Better Office as our design firm of choice. Right from the beginning , their professionalism, dynamic approach and devotion to service impressed us very much.
VBO has been able to put our wishes into plan, made some invaluable recommendations and kept us on track with our initial budget. They processed the Building Permit application and further coordinated the construction amongst all parties to assure quality and respect of our company’s branding. Our business experience with VBO has been superb and we would not hesitate to recommend them to any corporations out there looking for excellence for their office design and planning project.
