Mark Parrish

Head Cabinet Maker

Mark is the head cabinet maker at AG designs.  He is laser focused in the wood shop, but is no stranger to a good laugh. With an education in Architectural Millwork and cabinet making, he has over 27 years experience to bring to new innovative design and construction.  He loves challenging and unique projects that allow him to use his skills to the fullest. 

Ty Hardy

General Manager

Ty has been a part of the AG team since 2019.  He received his education at Canadore college and after a few years in the industry has found a niche with the crew here.  You are guaranteed to see smiles and hear laughter from the crew when Ty is around. Feature walls made of reclaimed boards have become one of his favourite projects but what he values most is the high standards and cohesion of his workmates.
