The key to a quality home is a good foundation, and Stonewater Group’s foundation is as solid as they come. The flagship company, Stonewater Homes, has become synonymous with custom luxury homes in Calgary since its inception in 2008, and managing partners Kevin Graham and Chris Corriveau built on its reputation for high-quality products and unbeatable service with its foray into commercial construction and project management four years ago.
“After many years of success, Stonewater Developments was created using the construction background and experience of Kevin and Chris and my experience in the development, real estate and finance side. We have a well-rounded management team,” says newest managing partner Anthony De Almeida.
The two divisions work together seamlessly. They use the relationships with trusted trades and suppliers that the team has forged over the years on the homes side to facilitate growth in commercial construction, land development and multi-family projects on the developments side. The result is exponential growth on both sides, further solidifying Stonewater’s place as a leader in the industry.
Stonewater Homes has branched out into building acreage properties around Calgary as well as new homes in Canmore, all the while helping clients build custom vacation homes in such areas as Kelowna and Vancouver. With the recession loosening its grip, clients are starting to pull the trigger on their custom build or renovation projects.
“We are getting a lot more interest outside of the city to build a Stonewater product. Our reputation has exceeded the city limits,” says Corriveau.
The Stonewater brand is growing and reaching beyond Calgary on the developments side as well. In the past few years, the company has evolved into a provider of large multi-family projects and industrial and agricultural projects including warehouses and equestrian stables. Stonewater Developments is currently in the planning stages of a 94-unit assisted-living project in Calgary along with a 32-lot custom residential neighbourhood near Edmonton.
“It’s a sought-after golf community that we’re co-developing, building and marketing,” says De Almeida of the Edmonton project.
No matter if the project is a luxury custom home or a commercial property, Stonewater Group applies the same high standards to every build. As a boutique shop, Stonewater gets to know clients well to make certain that their needs are met. The management team is accountable and accessible throughout the process, guaranteeing transparency and honesty to ensure clients are aware of what is going on, from schedules to material costs to coordinating the trusted trade partners and design teams.
“Building a house is a huge undertaking and we want to make sure the client understands it all and that they are happy with the process,” says Graham.
And Stonewater clients are truly happy. They have an incredible one-of-a-kind home that was built on time and on budget by a group of professionals who are as invested in the outcome as are their clients. For 10 years, Stonewater has been dedicated to providing Calgary customers with custom builds and renovations, and as its brand continues to grow, more commercial and residential clients will see why Stonewater Group is the only choice for custom luxury builds and developments.
