What Sets Japp Construction Apart from Other Saskatoon Framing Contractors? 

After meeting Gavin Japp,  it is immediately obvious that he cares about his clients' construction project needs as much as they do. They authentically believe in conducting business with honesty, integrity & the highest level of service possible- so they are a perfect fit for Trusted Saskatoon. 



Gavin had met with one of our Trusted Saskatoon representatives a number of years ago, but at the time didn't feel ready to join. Recently Japp had worked on a few projects with Karen & Steve Ostapiw, owners of K & S Contracting- Trusted Saskatoon General Contractors and foundation specialists. After hearing about their positive experience he decided to contact us again to see if there was an opportunity to go over what was involved in joining Trusted again.  

Passing The Trusted Verification Process With Flying Colours


We are often asked how we select Trusted Saskatoon partners. The answer is pretty straightforward, but is what also make us unique and trusted. Our local team actively seek and look for locally accountable businesses that have a reputation for quality driven excellence in the Saskatoon markets. In many cases, their customers, clients and other Trusted Partners nominate businesses they are impressed with. 

Once we meet and they decide to proceed with the process,  we give them a list of items we need to verify their ' Trusted status'. This includes a list of past clients who we survey personally over the phone- it is a pass or fail! In addition, we check the businesses online reputation, speak to business references and our team ensures any required licenses, qualifications, WCB and insurances are valid and up to date.

When speaking to the Japp's past clients we can share that the feedback was amazing. A few of the testimonials are on their listing here:  Japp Construction Listing, and we also wanted to share some other comments from the clients we spoke to.

" Gavin took the time to listen and explain everything to us. His attention to detail was outstanding and the communication was excellent from beginning to end. It is clear that he cares about his customers and goes above and beyond as standard. Whenever I wanted to talk to him he was available or called me straight back, he brought ideas, solutions and made the entire project run smooth. We had a few minor issues with other trades, Gavin stepped in and helped us sort things out, which was really appreciated.  I have already passed his number on to friends,  and after hearing the 5 Guarantees I can say with confidence that  Japp Construction is a perfect fit for Trusted Saskatoon " - Matt Owens, Saskatoon. 

"No Issues at all on our project! We had Japp frame our basement and found Gavin and his team to be friendly and courteous at all times! We had no issues before, during or after the job was finished. I rate them 9.5/10 and would defnitely recomed them to friends and family" Corey French. 

If your project is big or small, they will be there. From quick fixes to 20,000+ square foot buildings, they have done it all.

Welcome Synergy Business Solutions as Trusted Saskatoon Bookkeepers, HR and Business Consultants.

The Trusted Saskatoon team are thrilled to welcome the dynamic team at Synergy Business Solutions to the Saskatoon Directory of Excellence! Their services allow busy Saskatoon small business owners to focus their energies on running their business. They have professional specialists on staff with decades of experience who can assist with everything from bookkeeping to HR consulting. Synergy Business Solutions are Trusted Saskatoon Bookkeepers, HR and Business Consultants.

Are You A Small Business Owner in Saskatoon Looking to Get To The Next Level?

Chances are you are too busy doing things you shouldn't be and that is restricting your growth and potential! Business consulting or management consulting involves the use of an independent, objective professional as a problem solver and ambassador of lasting change...that's where Synergy Business Solutions comes in! 

Who Is Synergy Business Solutions and How Can They Help? 

Synergy Business Solutions is owned by Linda Henderson and Danielle Robson. If you are familiar with the Saskatoon business scene you may have already heard of these two dynamic ladies. When we heard they were getting together to start a business, we knew that it would result in something special. Read about their entrepreneurial journeys below to see why we were excited! . 

Linda Henderson- VP Operations 

Ironically Linda's journey as a serial entrepreneur started out the same time and the the same way as Sara the Trusted founders did! In 2011 Linda and Sara were both fired from their jobs. That awful moment in their lives ended up being the best thing that could have happened to them.

Linda's background was primarily in bookkeeping, with some sales and management that she had picked up on the way in her 25-year career. One of the shareholders of PetroTag ( a technology company serving the oil and gas sector) approached her to ask if she wanted to buy the company. After brushing many doubts aside she became the owner in the fall of 2011. Linda had a 5-year plan to pay it off and ended up paying it off in 1.5 years!  Riding the wave of success she decided to keep the momentum going and started another business in 2013, Crazy Cowboys Instrumentation, followed by a 3rd business in 2015! She was ( and still is ) one of the most successful and respected women entrepreneurs in Saskatchewan's energy industry! 

In 2016 Linda thought it made sense to tap into her experience and start a bookkeeping company Synergy Bookkeeping, to take care of the financials of these companies. The lease on her rental space was coming up and she was a little tired of paying rent, so started shopping around for a building. In April of 2016, she ended up purchasing the very building she was fired in six years previously! 

" Renovating that building was one of the more empowering moments for me. All of the self-doubt went out with the boardroom walls to the Loraas bin."  Linda Henderson
Today life in Linda's world is more about supporting and empowering others in their business life. Synergy Bookkeeping has changed its name to Synergy Business Solutions and Linda is especially passionate about the Business Support Group that meets once a month at the Synergy offices ( in that board room!)

Sara had the opportunity to interview Linda for the WESK  - Shaken With A Twist Series a few years ago - see the full interview here.    

Danielle Robson- President

When Dani was just 18, a family friend who was a Tim Hortons franchisee saw she had a huge entrepreneurial spirit and he suggested she apply for a Tim Hortons Franchise in Saskatoon. Three weeks later, in June 2003, with support from her family, she decided to ditch her law school plans, and they had their first Tim Hortons store in Saskatoon, on Fairlight Drive.

Fast forward many years, and “Hurricane Dani” shows no signs of slowing down. They have ten Tim Hortons stores and two Mr Mikes restaurants. With over 300 employees and a young family at home with three kids under age 10. 

I thrive in chaos and if I wasn’t having a baby or opening a store, I would be bored. Danielle Robson

Danielle is driven to succeed and she is passionate about sharing her skills and helping other entrepreneurs reach their full potential!
