Craft Contracting and Darwin Fisher: Paradise Developments

Darwin Fisher Commercial Flooring has a trusted network, partnering with contractors who share the same vision related to craftsmanship and customer service. Recently, Craft Contracting and Darwin Fisher collaborated on a new build project for Toronto-based, Paradise Developments.

Paradise Developments, established in 1972, has been building communities for over four decades. Paradise has built over 13,000 homes to date and is known for its experience and craftsmanship. The builder takes all details into account including location, amenities, open spaces and streetscape, when collaborating with planners, architects, designers and trades.

“Homebuilding gives us a profound sense of fulfillment as we strive every day to provide better environments, contribute to better schools, and support the communities with a sense of social consciousness – all with a level of integrity, respect and compassion for the world which we live in,” the company states.

Commercial Flooring: Starting the Project for the New Head Office

Paradise needed to provide a central location not only for staff but for their new home buyers. This new location would offer final selections for newly purchased homes including flooring, kitchen countertops and bathroom finishes. This required a new head office for the developer.

Darwin Fisher Commercial Flooring was contracted by trusted partner, Craft Contracting, to install part of the required flooring for Paradise’s new head office in Toronto at Heron’s Hill Way.

The Final Result

Darwin Fisher Commercial Flooring was chosen to install a variety of flooring materials throughout the newly constructed office. The main lobby and stairwell were finished with porcelain tile, including a feature wall in the main entrance.  All porcelain tile and wall tile for Paradise Development’s first floor showroom was also provided by Darwin Fisher.

Tile was installed for kitchen showroom concepts and for the staff cafeteria. Darwin Fisher further installed tile in all bathrooms in the building, the front entrance and all flooring on the first floor. Carpet tile was then installed for open areas on the second floor, including staff offices and boardrooms.

Craft and Darwin Fisher worked together to provide a stunning result despite an intensive schedule of working with a variety of different trades to get the job finished on time and to the satisfaction of Paradise Developments.
