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
and see the difference for yourself.
"...When the job started, things moved quickly. I was impressed with all the crew members that worked on my garage. The concrete crew was very detailed and took their time to ensure everything was done properly.
The overall garage quality is fantastic. Inspectors, friends, and family members have all noted that the quality of the garage is "above and beyond" what you would expect. I would highly recommend Gecko Projects to anyone looking to have a garage built.
* I received my quote in 2020; when wood prices skyrocketed in 2021, Derrick sent an email stating that he would still honour the 2020 quotes. I believe this illustrates that Derrick is also an honourable business person, which should not be taken for granted."

"After receiving three quotes for my 20x20 garage build, I decided to go with Gecko Projects. Derrick was punctual, thorough, and answered all my questions. Once the build started, Derrick and his team were professional, respectful, and worked well together. The garage was built on an existing pad and the project required moving a portion of a fence. The work was completed on time, and the site was left clean. I am very happy with the finished project. It was a great experience, and I would not hesitate to recommend Gecko Projects."
Lorretta C - Calgary, Alberta
"Gecko Projects was recommended to me by my cousin who also had a garage built with them last year. I can't say enough good things about Derrick and the entire crew. Derrick was in contact with me throughout the whole process and was very quick to respond to my multiple questions. My initial request was a two car garage but when Derrick came by for the initial inspection I had mentioned I wanted to close off my yard with a fence and gate. Derrick provided me with specs right away and the full details of the project and made the whole process so quick and easy. When it came time to build I couldn't believe the professionalism of him and his entire crew, not to mention how quick they worked on everything - these guys certainly know what they're doing. The fence and gates that were built from scratch were done with such expertise as well, I'm so glad I went with Gecko for this project."

"From start to finish this was a 5-star experience. Derrick and his crew of workers were very professional, helpful, honest and hard working. Couldn't be happier with my finished garage!"
Bruce McRae - Calgary, Alberta
"We couldn’t be more pleased with our garage construction from start to finish.
Derrick is both professional and personable, keeping us informed at every step of the construction process. There were no surprises through the build, even with the supply chain issues the current situation posed. He provided a fair estimate, and delivered a quality product, on time and at the quoted price. All in all, we couldn’t have asked for a more stress-free project.
He has a great crew, courteous and friendly, always showed up on time, and did excellent work.
I can’t recommend them enough. If you want a quality garage built at a fair price, Gecko is your go-to contractor."
Jamie - Calgary, Alberta
"We unfortunately had to tear down our garage due to another company’s shoddy workmanship, built before we purchased our house. It was beyond repair and after having several garage builders assess the situation, and getting three different quotes, we decided to go with Gecko Projects. Gecko was highly rated and came in substantially cheaper than the other quotes, including demolition. Derrick and crew made quick work of the project. Demolition was done in a single day. The concrete was poured and finished perfectly, and they even brushed the curb wall. It was amazing to watch the crew put the garage up so quickly. Framing, siding, roofing, electrical and OH door was done in three days. The attention to detail was great, and Derrick kept us informed with each phase of the build. The crew worked like a well oiled machine, and we are very happy with our new garage. I highly recommend Gecko Projects if you have a garage project!"
Scott Bulmer - Calgary, Alberta
"Our experience with Derrick, his crews and Gecko Projects was second to none. We had an oversized double garage built and it is a thing of beauty! Derrick uses only the best materials and very well-trained staff and we are delighted to report that the journey through this process was professional, transparent and seamless.
We will recommend this company time and time again!"
We're not putting on airs - our work is guaranteed to satisfy.
