Fun Facts
Our logo is based on the unique Prince Albert  gable, a variation of the original “holbol”, with vertical and horizontal moulding and a pediment with the date of construction or the owner's initials.

The use of the gable is a visual statement of our commitment to the preservation of Prince Albert’s architectural heritage.
