About Catalyst



1. a person or thing that precipitates an event or change;
2. often used to refer to the prime agent of any positive change.

What motivates us?

Catalyst is a company founded by two industry professionals who saw a void in the construction and renovation industry. They envisioned a general contractor that could be relied on to complete quality work on time, and on budget. A general contractor you can trust with your most valuable material asset – your home or business. Catalyst General Contracting was born. Established in 2009, we have worked tirelessly to build and maintain our reputation for quality residential renovations and construction. In ten years we’ve grown to 14 staff members and with hundreds of projects under our belt, we’ve got the experience and expertise to complete your project right the first time.

Why Catalyst?

The team at Catalyst listens to your needs and delivers on promises. We’re innovative, proactive and we treat our clients, sub-trade partners and suppliers with respect. We’re here to continue to build a company that will proudly serve Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and surrounding areas for many years to come.

We continually train our crew on new techniques, technologies and products to stay up-to-date in our industry. We always invest to stay current, and have implemented a cloud based construction software system that tracks all of your projects in real time – plus, all homeowners have access online or through a free app on your smartphone!
