About Us

Contempo believes in a no nonsense approach to every project. When you deal with Contempo you can be assured that your investment will benefit from our “Hands on” daily project management on every job, big or small. Over 20 years of new home construction and renovations have enabled us to establish relationships with the best trade partners and suppliers that the Calgary region has to offer and you will realize those benefits too. Our realistic, genuine, and forthright approach to every job we take on is the difference between Contempo and the hundreds of other renovators out there.

After 22 years of various roles within the new home construction and renovation industry Terry McAllister decided that he needed to start giving consumers what they actually want…a real renovation experience.

About Terry McAllister, Owner and GC

After 22 years of various roles within the new home construction and renovation industry Terry McAllister decided that he needed to start giving consumers what they actually want…a real renovation experience. Many years of experience as a Construction Superintendent, as well as extensive Home Inspection training through the leading Home Inspection Program in Canada (Carson Dunlop)…Terry has gained the experience, knowledge, and hands-on project management skill to successfully tackle any project he takes on. When you deal with Terry it’s the real deal, and he is the guy in the steel toed boots…not just a smooth talker who will get the contract signed and send in a junior employee to manage your project.

Our Process

We want to be transparent about our process and the upfront costs and complimentary services that we offer. We will give you the straight up truth on where things are at and how we suggest you proceed from any given point and time.

Inquire

Tell us about your project.

Consult

We will meet with you in person, free of charge. We will discuss your wants and needs and get into further detail about Contempo’s process as well as your budgetary and timeline requirements.

Plan

This is where we will put your ideas to paper by creating preliminary drawings, deciding locations for any needed electrical, lighting, plumbing fixtures, etc... At this point we will now be able to talk a little more about budget.

Design

Any material specifications will be made at this point. Complete blueprints will be created that will be used for any required permits and for construction. We will now have our scope of work created and a contract with a fixed cost will be signed.

Start

Contempo will now apply for any required permits and your project will be started.

From Our Clients

We contacted Contempo to do a renovation project for us and after getting a few quotes we went with who we were most comfortable with and the pricing was great. Terry put all of our questions and concerns to rest and they did exactly what they said they would do. I would do a handshake deal with these guys any day. Job was on time and on budget and looks fantastic. We will surely invite him over to our new downstairs bar for a drink on a job well done.
