New West’s architecture blends aesthetics with function with an emphasis on incorporating the environment to our luxury, delighting even the most discerning clients.

We will schedule three design meetings with our expert home designers. Before the meeting, you will complete our customer wish list which will ensure your dream home becomes reality.

In memory of a larger than life man who is profoundly missed, and never to be forgotten.

Also hailing from Calgary Tomo had an impressive career of more than 25 years with various roles in everything from mid-rise commercial, multi-family residential through to Owner/Operator of a land development company.

Tomo was committed to providing homeowners with quality workmanship, clear timelines, outstanding project management and competitive pricing.
