Always very responsive, communicates well and meets deadlines; if not early.

I had the pleasure of working with Lui and Vitalis Engineering for the past 4 years throughout multiple projects. Lui’s experience and expertise were instrumental in ensuring the properties I managed were not only more effective but compliant through regulatory fire-related compliance such as The Ontario Fire Code and NFPA Standards.

Lui is always very responsive, communicates well and meets deadlines; if not early. He is an amazing resource who follows up on projects and through an expert lens, showcases curiosity which makes the exchanges very enjoyable and informative.

I would highly recommend Lui and Vitalis Engineering for any project you may be considering.

Ease of mind throughout the project

“Lui is so knowledgeable and experienced that he was able to resolve issues for us one after another. He was able to give us ease of mind throughout the project as he was always on top of things and attended to details and challenges professionally. He is very helpful and always available (even after the completion of the project). He worked above and beyond to make sure that things work out as per code.

As a Property Manager for over ten years, I have worked with many contractors and Engineers in the past. Lui is definitely one of the best that I would highly recommend.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely state that Lui has provided excellent engineering services for the Hamilton-Wentworth Housing Authority.

I have had the pleasure of working with Lui, who is very conscientious and dedicated to providing superior service for the Hamilton-Wentworth Housing Authority.

Lui provided on a regular basis very detailed reports and records of the work in progress.

The Hamilton-Wentworth Housing Authority may be used as an excellent reference for Lui for any professional engineering services.”

Always Available

“In 2010, Lui was engaged as the consultant for a fire system replacement at the McMichael. The project, completed in April 2012, received quality attention from Lui, and was carried out with a high level of knowledge. Any challenges throughout the construction period were attended to professionally, and we knew that Lui was always available to address any questions or concerns we may have had. Even with the project finished, we know that we could call upon Lui for additional answers or advice.

We do not hesitate to recommend Lui for your project”

Workmanship and Attention to Detail

“I have had the pleasure of working with [Lui] for past two years, as part of the City of Toronto’s Fire and Life Safety Compliance Audit. Lui’s expertise and professionality has been instrumental in helping the City of Toronto review and assess our compliance with the Ontario Fire Code. The information provided by Lui has helped us develop stronger policies and procedures to bring the City of Toronto in compliance with the Ontario Fire Code.
I have also worked with [Lui] on several Fire and Life Safety capital projects, for some of our more complex Ontario Fire Code deficiencies. Lui’s workmanship and attention to detail have helped us execute projects with ease.”

Nicholas Worr

Manager, Fire and Life Safety - City of Toronto

Excellent Quality of Service

“I would like to state that the excellent quality of service, the professionalism and top notch communication skills that we received from Lui during this project was exemplary. Being one of the first projects to start, there were a large number of unknowns when we started. Lui assisted us through the project with the proper direction and expertise to complete the project. Revera is in debt to them for the complete portfolio. Will work with your company any place, any time. I can’t express the gratitude and respect that I have for Lui, who assisted me through over 20 sprinkler installation projects.”
