Cliff and Evans Ltd. was founded by Jonathan Cliff and David Evans, two lifelong friends who were convinced that there had to be a way to improve the consumer experience in the construction industry. With an eye for value engineering and a passion for communication, Cliff and Evans was formed to cater to the clients who needed experienced, organized construction management leaders to do more than simply build a structure. Now with hundreds of completed projects under their belts, the team has honed their expertise in both the residential and commercial construction worlds.
Cliff and Evans has experience working throughout Southern Ontario. Our expertise has been sought by clients in many parts of the Greater Toronto Area that feature Toronto’s iconic century-old housing and historic buildings, including the Annex, the Beaches, the Financial District, Forest Hill, High Park, Hoggs Hollow, King City, the Kingsway, Lawrence Park, Moore Park, Roncesvalles, Rosedale, Summerhill, Trinity Bellwoods and Yorkville. Outside of the GTA, the team has completed diverse projects in Caledon, Collingwood, Georgian Bay, the Kawarthas and Muskoka.
Over the last decade, Cliff and Evans has also been widely recognized for their many contributions to the industry. In 2019, Cliff and Evans was proud to win the prestigious Best Condominium Suite Renovation award by BILD at their 21st Annual Renovation and Custom Home Awards.
It’s crucial to assemble the right team for the successful completion of any project. But especially in the high-stakes construction world, collaborative teamwork is the most effective way to ensure that your project is completed on time and on budget.
Cliff and Evans has always prioritized building the right team from the outset of the project, which in turn facilitates the most seamless experience for our clients.
In addition to our talented in-house team with diverse expertise in project management and execution, Cliff and Evans has cultivated long-standing relationships with top industry professionals and internationally-renowned suppliers so that every hand that touches your project shares our commitment to client satisfaction.
We are also continuously surveying the industry to ensure that we are partnering with the best possible architects, suppliers and designers that are tailored to our clients’ unique project needs.
