In the spring of 2015 the final planning stages began for the addition to our current building. With the merging of Gordon Hardcastle Chartered Accountant’s and the launch of Ford Keast Human Resources, our current space would not suffice. The addition to the existing building maintains the original charm of the Historic Woodfield community and provides a modern open concept feel from within. The new and improved space not only provides for a more welcoming experience to clients but also allows for continuous growth of our team and our business.
