I don’t run this company from my office chair

Hi! I’m Gene Threadkell, and I’m the owner of Lifetime Developments. That’s my official title, but honestly I’m just one of the people who’ll be helping to build your home.

I founded Lifetime in 2012 and am proud at how quickly it’s become one of Calgary’s most reputable home builders and renovation specialists. Before Lifetime, I was a woodworker for some of Calgary’s elite home builders. That’s where I learned the importance of listening to clients’ needs, collaborating with everyone on the team and building custom projects on time and budget. I bring those values to every home I work on.

That, and hard work. You’ll find me on-site on every project, both managing the trades and rolling up my own sleeves — digging a hole, laying out pot lights, you name it. Being a tradesperson is in my DNA.


Lifetime Developments isn’t simply a business for us

Building your home is our passion.

That passion is reflected in every aspect of our process, and it all starts with our strong relationships: with architects, designers, suppliers and tradespeople. You’ll be working with established professionals dedicated to exacting craftsmanship, strict budget accountability and your stress-free experience.

But the most important relationship is with our clients. Not only do we want you to have a home you’re proud of, we want you to enjoy the process of building it. Our open, collaborative style ensures that happens. We respect your vision, and your budget. We work with you, listen to you, every step of the way.
