    Working with Collaborative Construction has been a wonderful experience for us. We did a full house renovation and from start to finish they looked after every detail. The trades … More that they work with are all top notch and you just instantly know that no corners are being cut. It was great for us to be able to follow along with the day to day progress of the job on the App they use.
    We lived in our home while the renovation was being done and every step of the way they helped us navigate through that to minimize disruptions.
    Evan and Derek were always just a phone call or text away and we could not have been happier with their work and communication.
    They quickly became friends and you just know you can trust them every step of the way. If you are considering doing a reno, I would highly recommend Collaborative Construction. Thanks guys!!!

    We were very impressed with our initial meeting with the Collab team. They arrived at our house to view and quote the scope of our renovation, and they were so knowledgeable and had … More high attention to details that mattered to us. We trusted them very early and had that sense of comfort to welcome them into our home. We could see how passionate they were with what they do and they would work to give us what we envisioned for our home.
    The Collaborative team was transparent and upfront on everything that was happening during the renovation. They constantly communicated to us about who and when they would be working on our home, every detail was explained and every question or concern we may have had was answered. We could not ever imagine having a more professional group of people to complete our renovation.
    The end result was a space that we will be able to enjoy with our family and friends for years to come. A space that started as as an idea, but made possible by the team at Collaborative - we wouldn’t have it any other way!

    Our experience with Collaborative Construction was exceptional. They most recently helped us transform our newly purchased dusty & dated 1950's bungalow into a warm & welcoming … More home.
    This 4 month interior renovation was all encompassing and included: fully gutting/refinishing our kitchen and bathroom, interior structural wall removal and beam install, multiple new windows, all new doors/paint/trim/flooring/lighting/fixtures, chimney delete & roof patch, telepost removal, basement floor demo & re-pour, new electrical panel & sub-panel, new plumbing & sewer line to the city connection, and generally improving the functionality of our home in its existing footprint.
    Derek & the crew were consummate professionals throughout and all involved trades were warm and easy to work with. Due to open and expert communication across all channels we were also able to take on parts of the project ourselves with no negative impact to our timeline of completion.
    I would definitely recommend Collab for your upcoming project!

    If you are reading this testimonial because you are considering using Collaborative Construction on your next project…make the call! I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed. … More I have nothing but praise for the group that worked on our renovation. I remember Derek saying at our first meeting that he didn’t want to over promise and under deliver…having said that, him and his team went above and beyond, far exceeding our expectations!!
    Our renovation was a large project that was completed in 2 phases and spanned over 11 months. We used the What’s Up app for day-to-day communication and they set up the entire project using the Builders Trend app which was invaluable (especially because we were living over an hour outside the city during the reno). Anytime of the day or night I could log in and view all the details of our reno from the financial side to timelines of the various trades as well as receiving daily updates with pictures and comments. I can’t tell you how many trips into the city this saved us! Special thanks to Shane Collinson and Terry Hale for their attention to details and meeting timelines with such finesse. They made the process absolutely stress free for us and we are forever grateful.
    Derek has great energy and work ethic, and he runs a first-class operation. I can see why he is able to attract the professionals that he does. The Collaborative Construction crew and all the trades that worked on our renovation were outstanding! They were all personable, professional and the best at what they do. I’m so glad that we were able to work with them ~ they were phenomenal! I highly recommend them for any renovation.

    Collaborative Construction is simply outstanding! While they didn't work on a specific construction project for me, I've had the pleasure of working with them on some marketing … More and have witnessed their expertise and commitment to excellence firsthand.
    This team comprises a group of highly talented individuals who possess an exceptional understanding of construction, from the initial concept to the final aesthetic. Their dedication to customer service is second to none. They excel at helping clients comprehend the full scope of their projects, ensuring clarity and transparency every step of the way.
    What truly sets Collaborative Construction apart is their wealth of experience, showcased through a portfolio of countless beautiful finished projects. Their work speaks volumes about their commitment to quality and client satisfaction. It's evident that they take immense pride in their craft.
    Additionally, their network of tradespeople is equally impressive. Collaborative Construction collaborates with trades that share the same values regarding customer service and client contentment. This ensures a seamless and well-coordinated approach to every project.
    If you're in search of construction experts who combine unrivaled industry knowledge with top-notch customer service, these are your guys (and girls!). Their track record of stunning projects and dedication to client satisfaction make them a standout choice in the construction field. Highly recommended!

    I had a great experience working with Collab. Every person who entered my home from the first demo crew through to the final walkthroughs treated my space with respect, and not as … More through it was a work site. They were great to work with when problems arose-always presenting suggestions and recommendations that were reasonable. My Reno impacted my entire living space-flooring, paint, light fixtures as well as construction, and they accommodated my family throughout. Living through a Reno can be difficult, but the Collab crew’s understanding of this made it easy. I highly recommend Collaborative Construction and have no doubt I would call them again.

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.

Ken and Sharon Lowe

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

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

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!


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.

Barb Ryan

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!

Kel Simon

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.

Ronald Holgerson

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

Thomas Le

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

Kevin Hadfield

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Donovan Stangler

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

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

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!

Corie Amundson - Granite By Wednesday

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

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

Haley Blackmore - Sprout Catering

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

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.

Anne Wells

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

Shelly Hubick

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

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

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…..
