Newfore Construction & Renovations

From the proposal stage to completion, our clients can manage the scope through an app or their laptop. The proposal includes an extreme level of detail, outlining costs, quantities and unit rates – making it easy for you to add or remove scope at a later stage. Once a project is awarded to us, we begin to add more detail to your project such as a live project schedule, material selections, progress photos and much more. The process is so efficient that some of our clients have managed their projects remotely – only visiting the site towards the end of the project.

Segal Construction

Smart Scale Tiny Homes & Sunrise Construction

My name is Michelle, with my husband Mike we own Smart Scale Tiny Homes! It’s the new sister company to our seasoned construction company, Sunrise Construction, and our team is dedicated SOLELY to building sustainable ADU’s and tiny homes!

What we are most excited about is our unique building envelope product: a pre-fabricated, structurally insulated panel (SIP) by the innovative Canadian company, ZS2 Technologies.

👉It is sustainable

👉carbon NEGATIVE (it actually absorbs CO2 from the surrounding atmosphere)

👉energy efficient

👉durable (mould resistant, fire resistant, water resistant)

👉as the panels are prefabricated it has a significantly quicker installation time (only 2-3 days to install the complete building envelope!)

We offer 3 convenient layouts to choose from: studio, 1 and 2 bedroom. Along with designer curated finish options, we make the project planning process significantly faster and smoother.

We’re super excited to be part of the ADU community, and look forward to connecting on your next project!
