I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the team at Calibre Construction for your continued great work and ongoing professionalism.
Optimize Envelope Engineering has had the pleasure of working with you and your group at Calibre since 2012, and most recently at the Bonavista Condominium complex in South Calgary. The scope of work included attic spaces in two buildings where the original construction defects/deficiencies were, for the most part, inadequate; installation of permanent safety lighting and walkways; plumbing venting, vapor barriers and the repair of fire/smoke barriers, as well as insulation top up. Work was completed with no impact on the residents and everyone on site was professional, polite and clean.
I would gladly invite Calibre to tender more projects with us and look forward to working with you in the future.

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the team at Calibre. They have exceeded all of my expectations on the project they are working on for me. They go above and beyond their scope of work to ensure a happy end client. I am impressed with their ethics, professionalism and their can-do attitude. The project they are working on has had so many challenges that we have had to overcome, but none too big for Calibre Construction. They have been patient with me and my end client, helping whenever and wherever possible. They have been fantastic.
I would highly recommend using Calibre Construction and I will definitely be using them again in future projects.

After Sherwin Williams bought out General Paint, we needed to upgrade our stores to better represent Sherwin Williams. We hired Calibre to work on four of our Calgary stores. Our stores remained operating while Calibre worked around us. We are very impressed with Calibre Construction. Any small issues were dealt with immediately. The communication and interaction between Sherwin Williams employees and the Calibre staff was great. Calibre’s ability to deal with the subtrades schedules took all of the stress away from us. All of these projects were on tight schedules, which Calibre achieved with no problems.
I would recommend Calibre Construction for any commercial renovations.
Trimac Transportation / National Tank Services hired Calibre to rebuild our storage building. They inspected the poor condition the storage building was in and made recommendations on what should be done, keeping the budget and everyone’s safety in mind. We were impressed with the professional approach and constant communication throughout the project. The project was completed on time and on budget.
I would recommend Calibre Construction to anyone looking for commercial renovations.

I have dealt with Calibre Construction from 2011 to present. During which time they have provided my business with excellent support in various construction needs for our Calgary locations. They recently completed construction of our new Wolf Living Kitchen display, our South store interior office and North store warehouse renovations. Their superior quality of work has dramatically improved our buildings' appearance. Our locations have become more aesthetically pleasing commercial environments. Their attention to detail is superb. Their ability to complete our projects on time and on budget is why we continue our working relationship.
I can confidently recommend Derrick Prince and his team at Calibre as a solid and reliable contractor that will exceed all of your expectations.
They have been completely accommodating to all of our service and safety needs, exceeding our requirements.
Thank you very much for an amazing store buildout! Our Essentia Calgary store was our 8th store buildout across North America in the last 3 years and, by far, the easiest to put together and best result!
Essentia evaluates its contractor bids using 3 major criteria: Cost, Time & Results. And though all three criteria are evaluated by the bids contractors offer, it is the references received from previous customers that determine our choice. Not only did Calibre put forward the best offer on paper, it was the amazing testimonials from previous contracts that put them over the top. And not only did they not disappoint; they exceeded expectations that were already VERY high.
On the cost side, there was a minimal addition to the original quote. In fact, for the amount of items added to the renovations, I was amazed that the cost hardly increased. Shane and his team did everything to save on other areas in order to accommodate for unexpected additions. In 8 renovation experiences, this was a first!
On the time side, Shane and his team delivered right on time, with a day or two to spare. There were some supplier issues that in most renovations would lead the contractors to extend the delivery date. Calibre took our deadline date as a make-it or break-it date and worked around the clock to ensure that all was done on time. In 8 renovations experiences, this was also a first!
Lastly, but certainly not least, the result of our showroom was sensational! Everything was done meticulously and beautifully, as if Shane and his team were building their own homes. As a very detailed person, I usually find little things that need to be repaired, touched up, or improved. But, to be honest, I couldn't find a single thing – and I was looking hard! Again, in 8 renovations experiences, this was a first!
In short, Shane and Calibre have set the bar very high for all our future contractors and I would easily recommend them for any job. Once again, I can’t thank Shane and Calibre Construction enough for the amazing job on Essentia Calgary!

We had the pleasure of working with the Calibre team for renovations to our office space. Our project entailed removing and replacing of all carpets, painting, and removal of some walls in our office space of about 3,300 square feet. This was all done over the course of one workday and the weekend to ensure minimal disruption to our business.
Leading up to the renovation required a great deal of preparation and decision making regarding color and cost of materials. Calibre did a great job of scheduling the appropriate subtrades. Paint was put on the wall to ensure we got the 'big picture' prior to committing to a color which was very helpful and ensured we chose the right color.
Our project went very well and was on budget. We are extremely happy with the results and have had many compliments on the change to our office. We would not hesitate to use Calibre for any further renovations. I highly recommend Calibre for renovations that are completed as planned to a professional office space.

On behalf of Calgary Super 8 Shawnessy, It is my pleasure to provide a recommendation for Calibre Construction. We have been in partnership with Calibre since May 2012 and have been impressed by the service received. Together we have developed a solution for the maintenance of our building and building systems.
We found Calibre to be dependable, efficient and honest. Any maintenance needed has been done in a timely and cost effective manner by qualified and conscientious trades people. We estimate that using Calibre’s services will save approximately 50% percent compared to using a full time maintenance employee as we have previously been doing.
I highly recommend using their services without reservation. Please call me or email me if you have any questions regarding our working relationship with them.

Calibre was engaged by the Board of Directors of The Bentley to demolish 8 large brick planters at the front of the buildings and refinish the face of the buildings with new brick. We found them very professional to work with and we are very satisfied with the work that was done.
Their quote for the work was very clear and detailed. Responses to our questions and concerns were quick and precise. After awarding the contract to Calibre, the work was carried out on time and in a good workmanlike manner. As minor problems arose during the excavation process, Calibre handled things very well and the small amount of extra billing that we incurred was entirely due to unforeseen events.
We would not hesitate to use Calibre again, and in fact, we plan to call them late this winter to look at other renovations that we have planned. We also do not hesitate to recommend Calibre to others as our experience has been entirely satisfactory.
