7 Generations

Nonno Felice

The man himself, an original figure. His occupation in 19th-century Italy was known as "muratore," translating to bricklayer.

Nonno Antonio

Following his father's passing, Antonio rekindled his father's passion and established his own construction venture: Macchiavelli. Despite the era's challenges, Nonno Antonio proudly ran his construction company, employing 19 workers who contributed to the development of the town now recognized as Pomigliano D'arco.

Nonna Maria

Nonna’s insatiable desire, which she fondly refers to as "la pazzeria," for construction started after her settlement in Toronto. She embarked on constructing her own homes with her children, a legacy that profoundly impacted her family and gave rise to a lineage of respected developers, consultants and custom home builders.

Our Philosophy

The project is you, the journey begins with us! We're moving away from the traditional model of residential construction and moving towards the 21st century with proper documentation and transparent processes.

We design what you can afford, and guide you to a successful building journey that should be enjoyed. Why are we different? We think differently and sometimes that’s all the difference in the world.

Renato Cancelli, Owner

Construction Project Manager | Estimator

My education began at George Brown College while pursuing Architectural Technology. My professional experience stems from my family lineage in construction. I observed the evolving landscape of the industry, be it residential or commercial and chose to make a shift towards Construction Project Management. It was here that I discovered my passion and received my certificate in Estimating as well. Fusing these three pillars of education coupled with my hands-on experience, I can confidently navigate the processes I have established on the job site and the intricate details behind the scenes. With this in mind, it’s my goal to ensure the highest standards of excellence in every aspect of my work.

Feasibility Study

Our feasibility study serves as the initial step for investors and homeowners alike, assessing a project's potential with zoning by-laws.

Schematic Design

The first stage of our design process. It is made up of a site plan and floor plans.

Design Development

The second stage of the design process. It is comprised of 3D renderings and exterior elevations.

Permit Set

We refer to them as the Construction Documents. It includes zoning and code information, demolition plans, floor plans, section details, interior & exterior elevations. As part of the final stage, it includes structural and mechanical design, construction details, and general notes.


Subcontractor Analysis

Our unique process enables clients to engage with us directly and participate in subcontractor analysis, fostering open communication and full transparency throughout the project.

Lien Prevention : Securing Your Project

We make it our goal that all trades involved in your project are managed effectively to prevent any potential liens, providing you with peace of mind throughout the construction process.

Transparency is key. We commit to providing clear and accurate billing details, ensuring that you have a complete understanding of all costs associated with your project.
