All the best, The Editorial Team We will keep adding business units that enhance our offering and separate us from our competition. “ ” Editor From The Dear Reader, Welcome to the latest issue of Construction Source Canada, the magazine that highlights the best in building and building products across the country. In this edition, we’ve focused on builders and developers from across Canada – from Red Deer, Alberta, to North York, Ontario, to Montreal, Quebec. The companies we’ve profiled all come from different places and their directors have different perspectives, but they are all powered by similar drives. All seek to do things differently; all seek to meet a local need that is otherwise going unmet; all seek to build a better calibre of product than their market is accustomed to. The Red Deer-based Ross Contracting is a prime example – founder and owner Jeff Ross started his career in construction elsewhere, and brings a perspective to Alberta that’s unique to any other local builder. We spoke to Jeff about his journey, about starting out from the bottom, and about the custom homes and renovations that have elevated him to a local industry leader. Also in this edition is D2S Construction, based out of Montreal. They are a fast-growing company that provides a wide range of building services and never delivers the same project twice. We spoke to founder and co-owner David Riendeau about their growth, what’s powered it, and about how they put their own unique stamp on everything they do. There’s also Tibro Properties, which specializes in the development, construction, and property management of purpose-built rental properties in the Greater Toronto Area. Their company is all about doing things differently – they were founded by brothers Sarit and Savan Chandaria with the goal of providing their region with a better class of rental property. We talked to them about the great need for those properties, how Tibro is meeting that need, and how their commitment tenant rights sets them apart from most competitors. For those stories, and many more like them – about more forwardthinking and boundary-pushing designers, builders, and developers – just keep reading.
