Prime Consulting

KNH Sawatzky & Associates has over 25 years of experience as a prime consulting firm. We offer a one-stop-shop for all our clients' design needs. This includes architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical engineering services. This fully integrated design team simplifies the design service process for all our clients as you only need one contact. 

 All team members of this design group have worked together for over 25 years. Over this time, we have developed a very efficient and effective professional design service for all our client's benefit. We seek to establish close ties with all our clients so we have a better understanding of their overall dreams and goals and how each project works toward these objectives. We aren't just building projects - we are developing relationships!

 As developers and building owners ourselves, we have a keen awareness and understanding of the questions and concerns that building owners face during the development process. It is our mission to answer these questions and concerns from a developer's perspective to make this process as stress-free as possible. We leverage our years of design and development experience to achieve the best overall value for our clients.

 Our growth has been built on word of mouth referrals from other satisfied customers. We want to continue to grow this way as, in our opinion, this is the most satisfying and rewarding way of developing a business - while at the same time having fun with those we work with.
