Why Choose Quartek?

Quartek is Niagara’s leading professional multi-disciplined design firm.

Architecture, Engineering, Planning and other design services are all too often compartmentalized into restricted scopes of professional discipline. Quartek Group approaches each project with a holistic, integrated and professional design strategy. Concepts and designs are vetted by regularly scheduled design team meetings to enhance design quality and expedite problem solving. An ethos to provide quality service for our clients is of utmost importance.

Our approach requires input of  design participants during the conceptual and formative phases of a project’s development. Timely participation of the owner, end-user and any stakeholder group in the design process is crucial to a successful and achievable final design culmination. This is where we find innovation; producing the optimal environment for you.
