Cantera Management Group


"We have had the good fortune and privilege of being Cantera Management Group's first construction management client. From our initial discussions, through contract negotiations and now construction of our project, Darren and his team have been unfailing in their commitment to "getting it right." Our customers have also been thrilled with the prompt, professional approach to customer service issues."

"It was a pleasure to work with the Cantera team on the Gruv Project in Central Surrey. The great experience is consistent from the management level to the customer service department. The Cantera team is professional, detail oriented, courteous to owners during the orientation process and precise on delivery dates. I look forward to working with the Cantera team on future projects."

"My total experience with the Cantera Management Group was extremely positive. Cantera managed the construction of the Gruv, a four-storey, 111 unit residential condominium over an underground parkade, for my company. During the development and pre-construction stage, Cantera worked closely with the team of consultants and was able to identify significant savings and give guidance on building a good quality, serviceable product. Cantera and all of the trades who worked on the Gruv exceeded our expectations. The project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget. This group is well organized, efficient and I look forward to building my next project with Cantera."

Adbul Ladha, Owner
Gruv Development Corporation

"We worked with Cantera on the Gruv project at 9655 King George Highway. Cantera is a very professional firm; they pay attention to details and schedule. The staff are very cooperative and hard working. They respond to emails promptly. Any problems that were raised were solved quickly and efficiently. The greatest asset that they possess is that they care about their work. They provide excellent service and worked very well with the various members of the consultant group. They are not just doing a job, but rather they are trying to deliver a product that the Owner will feel proud of and profitable for the Owner. We are impressed with their interest in the life safety aspect of the building and try to do everything right the first time. They are truly a delight to team with."

"Having worked in the construction industry for 20 years I have come to know the value of integrity, professionalism, and competence. Cantera Management Group demonstrates these qualities through actions and not words.

When we purchased our new office, we had two major requirements, having all the Tenant Improvements done within six weeks, and having a transparent bid process where we knew we were getting the best prices to meet our budget. The project came in on time and below budget.

Cantera's team provided design services, creative input, detailed billing and patiently explained the ramifications of our decisions with respect to timelines and the budget. They held all the suppliers and subtrades accountable to their high level of quality. Alliance Truss could not be more happy with the finished project.

Although I have extensive experience and contacts in the industry and have built custom homes in the past, the effortless, stress-free, transparent experience I had on our TI made it a simple decision to award Cantera the contract to build my custom home this spring".

"We here at Trimac have been very pleased with the work that was performed by the team at Cantera. They offered us a great updated look for our front office custom made to suit our needs. The Cantera Group work in a very effective manner with minimal transition times between jobs. They offered us help and understanding throughout the entire job and were readily available to us when questions arose. We would like to THANK YOU and all those who helped out in making this job a complete success."

"We have known the management team at Cantera Management Group for many years; they are well-organized, well-informed and very easy to work with. Their construction team is just as motivated and hard working. When we were designing our new office space, we immediately contacted Cantera; we wanted a clean, crisp, glass encased space for our offices. Cantera delivered on time and on budget; everyone was easy to work with and really cared about the work they were doing. Our staff couldn’t be happier in their new offices! Overall, it was a great experience for us! I would highly recommend Cantera Management Group."
