"Kelvin is a craftsman house builder. He pays attention to detail and is dedicated to building beautiful houses. He understands all the facets of house building and hires tradesman who do high quality work. Kelvin worked with me from the inception of my project though to completion. He reviewed my house designs from the earliest conceptual drawings through to the final construction drawings. He provided invaluable input on aesthetics, function, and constructability. He has a thorough understanding of bylaws and building codes and guided me through the permitting process. Kelvin assisted me with the decisions during the construction process and would meet me at vendors' showrooms if I requested his assistance. He strives for high-quality and doesn't take shortcuts. He was easy to contact and responsive to my requests. Kelvin is extremely good-natured, easy to work with and very knowledgeable about house construction. I highly recommend Kelvin to any owner who wants to build a beautiful, high-quality house."

"We contracted Kelvin Hickerson to do a second story addition on our 1950's bungalow. Kelvin lead us through every part of the process from the engineering, permitting, drafting and building on the project. Kelvin was on site every day work was being done. He has relationships with all the trades people he used and held them to his high standards and was exceptional with finding creative solutions to any issues that arose. He listened to everything we wanted to do and counselled us about the pros and cons on each idea we brought to him.
The work site was kept impeccably clean and safe and the project time line stayed right on schedule. We had a number of our own ideas for the project and he was able to partner with us to make those artistic visions become reality, whether the fire place with architectural antiques, tile in the master bath that mimics a flowing creek or waterfall tile in the kids bathroom. We maintained a constant and open dialogue that allowed for us to remain involved and also trust his judgement and feel comfortable leaving the project in his hands when we were unavailable. We really can't thank Kelvin enough for managing the build and complete transformation of our forever home. We could not be more pleased with the end product. I would highly recommend Kelvin Hickerson and would work with him again in a heartbeat!

"K Hickerson Contracting built my home in 2009. I am very pleased with their service and the quality of the workmanship. We are currently enjoying every bit of our home. We are very happy and I would definitely build from K Hickerson Contracting again and would highly recommend them to any of our friends."
"As first time builders, our experience with K. Hickerson Contracting Ltd. could not have been more positive. A complex, modern, ands sustainable design made this intricate inner city build a challenging one – but K. Hickerson Contracting Ltd. handled the project with ease and professionalism. Right from the design stage, Kelvin and his team were by our side advising, supporting and making suggestions to ensure that our vision was realized and that we would be able to achieve it within our budget and on time. The team’s willingness to openly share their expertise and provide creative solutions to challenging problems throughout the build meant that our confidence in the team was unwavering. No question was ever too big or to small and this level of support to us was invaluable throughout the process. The end product was our young family’s dream home fully being realized. Thank you Kelvin, Mary-Beth and the whole team at K. Hickerson Contracting Ltd.

"The Service we received from K. Hickerson Contracting was outstanding. We have built three houses in Calgary, with two of the larger builders in Calgary, and have had both positive and negative experiences with these. By comparison, building with Kelvin has been the rewarding, exciting process home-building is supposed to be. By maintaining exceptionally high standards for his trades, the work done (and low level of after-the-fact fixes) has made the process as hassle-free as possible. In any instances where there were minor issues (that will always arise with building), Kelvin ensured that these were dealt with promptly and correctly to avoid any further delay to construction. His experience and knowledge in regards to all aspects of the build really help maintain the high standard of work, and he is able to (very patiently) explain the issues to the homeowner in a way we could understand and feel at ease about any situations that arose. His experience also allows him to suggest alternatives and advice in the design and construction of the home, suggestions that are creative, innovative solutions that do not cost the earth and still remain practical, and yet are leading edge in terms of style and using newer construction materials. When I think about previous builds we have done, or ones that I am seeing in our inner-city neighborhood, I feel exceptionally lucky that we have Kelvin as our builder and will not be facing some of the long and short-term issues that come along with the sloppy, hurried work by inexperienced and cost-cutting trades. We have a reassuringly, exceptionally well-built house. We have enjoyed the process thoroughly. From talking to the trades, their perspective is that they also really appreciate working for Kelvin, who deals with both the homeowners and trades fairly, with respect, with financial transparency and with a very genuine dedication to home-building as an art and a skilled craft. I would have no hesitation about recommending Kelvin to my peers.

"We've been living in our home built by K. Hickerson Contracting Ltd. for over six years now, and we couldn't be happier! The careful design, quality finishes and top-notch workmanship are evident throughout our home. We were so impressed by the work done by Kelvin and his team that we asked them to complete our basement development as well! Kelvin listened to our design requirements and allowed us to choose our layout, finishes, and custom cabinetry to suit our family's lifestyle perfectly. Highly recommended!"

"As first-time homebuilders we approached Kelvin to help us build our dream home. With his knowledge and guidance we were able to approach this project with a level of confidence that we didn’t feel with other builders. Kelvin’s professional contacts and knowledge of the construction industry were tremendously helpful in our home being built with high quality, custom materials that were within budget. Kelvin was professional and reliable and his project management skills kept our construction project on a good timeline. We are very happy with our finished product and have had many visitors ask us who built our beautiful home. I would not hesitate to recommend Kelvin and his company for future projects."
