“BRAND VISION”

At Ravenwood Developers, expertise and practical experience combine to make our
customer’s dreams become reality, delivering superior quality at price they can afford.

Our Process


Building on a lifetime of experience in the construction industry and three years as a general contractor we believe that, when it comes to successfully building, renovating or expanding a home, the single most important thing is communication. At Ravenwood Developers we apply a rigorous process to ensure the right information gets communicated to the right people at the right time.

Initial Consultations

Our customers know what they want. The initial consultation helps us understand the scope of the project and provides the basis for a preliminary estimate. It’s also where we develop an understanding of our customers’ lifestyle and what really matters to them. We can also begin to identify site conditions that may impact project scope.

Preliminary Estimate

The preliminary estimate provides an ‘order of magnitude’ for the project. It marries what the customer wants with an estimate of costs based on our years of industry experience and current conditions in the Calgary market that affect everything from labour to the price and availability of materials.

Materials Selection

Materials selection allows us to develop a more detailed and accurate quote. For many of our customers, this is the fun part. We’ll set you up with our suppliers to develop a detailed list of fixtures, finishes and materials. Some of our customers choose to complete this on their own, but many have a preferred designer. We can also recommend a designer that we work with regularly.

Quote

At this point we have enough information to provide a final quote for the project. If the quote is acceptable, we present a contract and take an initial deposit. Any changes to the project scope or details that impact cost will be thoroughly discussed with the customer and a change order issued to adjust the quote. Similarly, unanticipated site conditions that impact cost will also be discussed with the customer and a change order issued.

Scheduling

Building, renovating or expanding a home is a complex process that involves the efforts of many skilled trades, from framers, plumbers and electricians to tile setters, metal workers and many others. Timing is everything. We work with a preferred roster of these trades whose work we know we can stand behind and who we know will be there when they say they will. We never sacrifice quality for the sake of ‘just getting the job done.’

Completion

A project is complete when the work specified in the contract is complete and any construction deficiencies have been identified and resolved. At this point, we present a final bill for the project. We provide a two-year warranty on labour and materials, and conduct a review of our work at the one-year mark.

"We are more than satisfied with the meticulous kitchen renovation Ravenwood did for us in 2018.

Our home in Wildwood was originally built in 1956.  We had substantial structural exterior work to do first, 2 new windows and 2 new doors.  Ryley's crew tackled this with skill and enthusiasm. We found the entire Ravenwood team well-qualified tradespeople who were a joy to have around,

60-year-old houses are never as square as they once were.  The Ravenwood crew rose to the occasion, removing old kitchen counters/appliances and installing new ones with great attention to finishing detail, integrating seamlessly with our existing dining room, lighting, flooring, and music system.  They were unfailingly helpful with a handful of "adjacent" fixes we requested, demonstrating a modern knowledge of sealing and plumbing materials.

Our new kitchen is now a joy to work and live in.  It will be a strength, not a liability, for us at resale time.  We now enjoy fantastic storage, great access and ease of use of all our utensils and food items, and are proud to host our friends.  As we dreamed when we started looking for the most trustworthy contractor available, our new kitchen is again the heart of our home."
