How we do it

Always do right – this will gratify some and astonish the rest.
~Mark Twain

Care, Accountability and Sustainability

We know that the house we build is your home and the distinction is not lost on us.

We make our living improving the way you live. The best way to do that is to work openly with you before, during, and after the physical construction phase. Our goal is to give you the information and tools you need to be informed and engaged every step of the way.

Our team maintains open lines of communication internally and externally to ensure that the best people and products are used in the right places and at the right times. The focus is on shared knowledge and each individual’s specialised skills. We strive for efficiency in our time management and asset allocation. Get in touch with us and experience it for yourself!

We believe that we have a responsibility to reduce our environmental impact in large and small ways. This means always looking to incorporate responsible building practices, seeking sustainable sources, and working with you to find ways to increase the energy efficiency of your space. We also know that it is important to walk the walk and we strive to run our job sites and our office as greenly as possible. Learn more about our environmental commitment.

Custom Tools for Custom Jobs

It takes more than hammers and saws to complete high-end home construction. In a traditionally low-tech industry, we realized that the tools needed to stay organized to the extent we desired, didn’t exist – so we built them.

Technology enhanced information sharing allows us to be adaptive and efficient. We track changes to the initial design and forecast the impact to the end scope. We react and adjust to changes in scheduling or scope as needed and approved by you.  We use this software to predict future scheduling needs of our in-house labour force, allowing us to have the right people for the job available right when they’re needed.

Using custom software, we provide detailed project estimates and track actual costs during construction. We have automated most of our data entry, cutting down on errors, saving time in the office, and greatly reducing our paper waste. We pass those savings on to you.

We partnered with BuilderTrend construction management software to share live reports of all aspects of the work with you at all times – anywhere in the world. You are able to view the live project schedule as well as current versions of plans, specifications, and other documentation such as receipts and invoices. You can see site photos showing progress and details of construction, as well as communicate with the project managers and trades directly through the portal. Everyone is looking at the same information, and everyone is updated automatically on relevant change orders or design versions.

You’re 100 per cent in the know and always in control.
