Gecko Projects Ltd was established in 2008, and has since come a long way. We started out in
Calgary's post-boom era in the spring of 2008, and managed to make a name for ourselves. It's never
been about getting big or putting up the most garages, but providing a valued service delivered in a
different way than our competitors for a fair price. We're not the cheapest, but we're not the most
expensive either. We do however, work with, and build the best.
Drawing from our education and a long history working in the trades, Gecko Projects separates
itself from the competition by limiting the use of sub-trades, who in our opinion, are overused and
abused in the Calgary construction market. By bringing our workers ‘in-house’, we can eliminate
many factors that lead to customer dissatisfaction. Our trades are employees with a long term stake
in the business. They’re paid hourly versus piece work, thus they will never be motivated to rush
through a job or to cut corners. If you’re paid piecework, there is little to no motivation to ‘go
above and beyond’; something we do everyday.
The alternative, projects will be completed to the minimum standard that ensures payment to said
sub-contract/trade, nothing more. Our competitors consist of companies operating as general
contractors, paying a multitude of trades bottom dollar on a piece work basis. Some companies
putting up 100's of garages a year (and the rest aspiring to) do nothing but leave the customer
behind. Poor communication and ambivalent trades that are prepared to do only the bare minimum
required, because they did not get rewarded for any extra effort, plague this model.
Thus Gecko Projects Ltd, specializing in new garage construction, was born. What was the answer?
Start Small, Stay Small! One project at a time (first in, first out). One crew working on projects from
start to finish, experienced and trained in all facets of new garage construction. Limited use of sub-
trades, unless absolutely necessary (licensed trades required ~ i.e. electrical installation, or
plumbing/gas fitting). One point of contact throughout the project lifecycle from sales to
construction and follow-up. As well as an iron clad promise to respond to every phone call and
email from our customers on a timely basis.
In the end it's been nothing short of a success. We've built solid relationships with some of the best
businesses/suppliers in Calgary, we provide a valued product and service in the most professional
manner, and we have the reviews and a long history of customer satisfaction to show for it.
Thinking about building a garage in the near future? We recommend you contact Gecko Projects
