We are very pleased with Collab

We are very pleased with the renovations we had done by Collaborative Construction and their subtrades. From our first meeting with Derek and subsequent interactions with Derek, Shane and the rest of the team, we were impressed with how professional they were. All the trades were very personable and knowledgeable. Everyone was willing to answer our questions and concerns and suggest solutions. We would highly recommend Collaborative Construction and would definitely contact them again in the future.

The value of my house has gone up considerably.

I honestly don’t think I could be happier with my extensive main floor reno. Not only is the finished project all I hoped for, the entire project was actually fun. They started and finished on time and there was someone here working every day. They were neat, very willing to listen to my ideas, and just all around nice guys. I trusted them in my house when I wasn’t home. Don’t get me wrong, I was glad when it was finished, but I missed the hubbub and the excitement of how things would change that day. It was fascinating to me. Almost as good as having a lovely, modern new kitchen and living area is the value of my house has gone up considerably. I had my house appraised before and again after and the value went up pretty well the full amount of the reno. No point in doing renos before selling, I can enjoy my new place for years before selling. I would not hesitate to recommend Collab to anyone interested in a change, whether big or small. I also would be happy to hire them again should I decide to renovate a condo in years to come. My son and daughter-in-law hired Collab as well and they had the same experience. It was that positive experience that prompted me to hire them. Highly recommend this fine company.

Great Workmanship

We’ve worked with Derek and crew a number of times. Very high quality people with great workmanship. Do not hesitate to call these guys if you need anything!

Completely Renovated Condo

Collaborative Construction completely renovated my condo when I moved from Toronto to Regina, including new hardwood floors, new kitchen back-splash, significant wall painting, unique folding doors to a study, new cabinetry, and a fabulous marble bathroom and shower. Derek was an excellent project manager, and all members of the team worked seamlessly to ready my new residence.

Efficient, Professional, And Came In Under Budget

Collab recently did a kitchen and flooring reno for me, and they were awesome as usual. They were very efficient, professional, and came in under budget! I would definitely recommend them.

On A Scale Of One To Ten, They Are Over Ten

We would highly recommend Collaborative Construction after they completed our kitchen renovation. The work was of the highest quality done on time and slightly under budget. Derek, Trevor and the construction crew are the best. Derek is there to help from before the job starts until it is completely finished. Nick, Read and Casey are professional,friendly and very easy going. Collaborative supplied us with the first estimate and we should have skipped the others. We are completely satisfied with their work. On a scale of one to ten, they are over 10.

Karen Vandergrift

We were very happy with

We were very happy with the work Collab did for us but probably more impressed with the way they dealt with us on a personal level. Any issues were handled professionally and their crew were very easy to talk to. Thanks Derek and Nick and the rest of the team for a great job.

Troy Yont and Lana Nation

On Time And Under Budget

We had Collaborative Construction do our basement renovations and they did a fantastic job! Great communication, we were always in the loop, and they came in on time and under budget, too! Thanks so much for everything!!

Karrie S

Knowledgeable, Efficient, Detailed and Focused

The work done by Collaborative Construction is outstanding! Knowledgeable, efficient, detailed and focused is how I would describe this crew. Thanks again!

Kevin Hadfield

Courteous, Hard-working And Friendly

Tery and I couldn’t have asked for a better crew to design and renovate our Kitchen and main floor area. Derek has so much knowledge and has an eye for the end result. We hesitated about the size of the cutout from kitchen to living room but Derek said it would be fine and right he was. It’s awesome! The work was completed in a timely manner and the crew… well they were awesome too – courteous, hard working and friendly. We love, love, love our new kitchen/ main floor and couldn’t have asked for a better crew. Until our next project…..

Heather Patryluk

I was very impressed with

I was very impressed with the service I received and more impressed with the final results.
The team is very professional and pleasant. They offer suggestions and are accommodating if you want to make changes. They clean up everyday before they leave and keep you updated, with notes and photos of the work that was done each day.
I would highly recommend Collabrative Constuction to anyone who is looking for a reliable, trustworthy company. Their service is top notch! You won’t be disappointed choosing them.

Anita Blaha

Performance beyond expectation!

Performance beyond expectation; Time is everything. Rarely in contractual work do you see delivery on time. I have to applaud Derek and Don of Collaborative Construction for delivering professional work with nothing less than perfection ahead of time. In addition to great recommendations on the unexpected with a mind-reading process in place, communication via the app was brilliant, the product delivered was nothing less than well done, and it was pretty much within the expected appraisal with no surprises.
Well done to your team and a big thank you!


Stayed On Budget

Collaborative Construction was very easy to get a hold of and talk too throughout the reno process. They set up a group alias so we could text back and forth for easy communication; so if we had questions or wanted an update we got a very prompt response. They were up front with the costs and were able to stay on budget; in fact, they came in slightly below (which was awesome). I appreciated when the new sinks had small leaks after being installed; they had someone fix it right away without delay (things don’t always go according to plan, but it’s how you handle those situations that matter). They did a great job and I would recommend them to others; which in fact we did.

Done Professionally

Collaborative did a small project for us, renovation of a shower, but it was done professionally and we are pleased with the result.

Bruce Anderson

Projects Came In Under Budget

Collaborative Construction completed our projects more quickly than expected and materials and workmanship were both top-notch. The projects came in under budget (for both labour and materials) and the savings were credited back to us. You don’t see that kind of honesty in the construction business every day. They also did the best post-project site clean-up I’ve ever seen. Collaborative Construction will be my go-to company for any future construction/renovation needs! I recommend them most highly.

John Reid

Competitive Prices

Great company, competitive prices. Friendly hard working guys. Great quality job.

Shelly Hubick

Always There When They Said They Would Be

We absolutely love the amazing renovation that Collaborative Construction completed on our home. It was a massive job, but they were up to the task. They was never any concern about these guys showing up to work. They were always there when they said they would be… usually earlier. I have recommended Collab to clients and friends several times over the past year, and will continue to do so. If we were to do this entire reno again, we would still call Derek and his crew! Thanks guys!

Skott Enns

First Home Reno Experience

This was our first home reno experience so it was definitely a learning experience for us. However Derek and Trevor and Co were great. They provided lots of great insight along the way. Also the timeliness and quality of work was exceptional. Will definitely be contacting this team again for future reno needs.

Garrett Vey

Above And Beyond

So many thanks to Collaborative Construction! You guys were unreal! You went above and beyond with everything!

They Never Disappoint

Derek, Trevor and the rest of the guys at Collab have done multiple jobs for us and they NEVER disappoint!! We always know we are going to get a finished product that we absolutely love. They are professional, timely, talented and all around the best!! I highly recommend

Suggestions Which Saved Me Money

I was very impressed with the professionalism of the workers, each one brought something to the table that seemed to be their expertise. Derek was very helpful in making suggestions which ended up saving me money. I know working in an older home can be challenging at the best on times but I believe your team met those challenges from their experience on working in other homes in the area.

Marilyn Boyd

Exceeded My Expectations

I had Collaborative Construction build a garage and they definitely exceeded my expectations. They completed the entire project in two days including siding, soffits, and shingles, which is unheard of. While doing the job quickly, the quality didn’t suffer and I’m very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Derek and his team.

Kris Buhnai

Gave Us Their Full Attention

It was a great experience working with Collaborative Construction. The finished product was almost better than we’d hoped and they gave us their full attention during the entire project.

Angie Fiacco

Talented And Passionate Individuals

We are thrilled with the service and final outcome of our home renovations. Collab Construction is made up of talented and passionate individuals. I look forward to working with them on future projects.

Nick Mazurak

Positive Attitude About Older House

The guys from Collaborative Construction are all friendly and easy to deal with, and good at what they do. I really appreciated the positive attitude about our older house, especially from Derek (who we primarily dealt with). We’re very happy with our bathroom!

Alanna S

Expectations Were Definitely Surpassed

Collab construction completed a medium-sized renovation for us which included the dining room, powder room and front entrance. Our expectations for the project were definitely surpassed! I was initially hesitant to make a structural change to our house. Derek, James and the crew made the structural change with ease and were very diligent throughout the process. Thank you, Collab!
