Founded in 1989 by company President Steve Barkhouse, Amsted has grown from a single-person operation to an award-winning design-build company that employs more than 40 people and completes more than 30 projects a year. Yet of all the prestigious honours, our greatest source of pride is our clients’ continued satisfaction.
Amsted grew out of Steve’s inherent “people-pleasing” nature, and today that feeling has permeated throughout the company, reflected in our Vision, Mission and Core Values. Highlighted on our office walls and appearing in the wallets of every team member, we promise that not a day passes where these guiding beliefs aren’t considered. Our ideals help us focus on how we can positively impact all the people involved with Amsted—whether client, partner or team member.
Amsted also believes in the importance of giving back and is an active member of the Ottawa community, supporting such worthwhile organizations as the Boys and Girls Club Of Ottawa, Hospice Care Ottawa and many more.
Adding comfort and value to your home is the service you have trusted Amsted to provide, and that we’ve been thrilled to guarantee, for the past 30 years. We look forward to continuing this tradition for Ottawa-area homeowners for the next 30 years to come.
