Our Client Reviews

Kyle Engineering started working with Norand Industries Inc on a subdivision project in Central Saanich in 1992. From there Hoel did all of our development work for the next 18 years, which consisted of several major residential rezoning and subdivision projects in Central Saanich and the District of Saanich. We found them and their staff to be very knowledgeable and up to date on all aspects of each project, assisting our rezoning applications and subdivisions to smoothly pass approvals in all cases.
