Mike Serrao, General Manager and Owner

With more than a dozen years experience in the construction and home development industry in Calgary, Mike has seen – and done – almost everything on a worksite. And he has as much experience offsite as well: project planning, scheduling, and managing all the moving pieces and people of a new build or renovation.

Even when creating the initial plans, Mike can see the completed project in his head; it’s just a matter of steps to reach it. But it’s the creativity involved with each of those steps that Mike enjoys the most. And by the time a project is actually complete, he’s so invested in it that he always finds it hard to turn over the keys.
