SMALL & MID-SIZE DEVELOPERS
REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS
Let us synthesize your requirements and vision into sketches, 3D models, and renderings that show a clear picture of the final design intent.
PERMITS & APPROVALS
Highly knowledgeable in the municipal process. With our detailed drawings and documents, we will obtain all the necessary permits and approvals from authorities.
We can help you visualize the interior space design, materiality, and scale using pictures, illustrations, material boards, sketches, 3D models and renderings.
With expertise in zoning and design, we can help small & mid-size developers make financial and project decisions to find the best use of land, or help acquire land that best fits their intended purpose or business occupancy.
MODULAR + PREFABRICATED
As an alternative to the traditional construction process, we have experience designing prefabricated modules that are constructed off-site that are later transferred to the property for a controlled and efficient build.
If you want to work a builder other than us, no problem! We will inspect, verify and report the quality and accuracy of the construction progress and ensure that it meets all requirements that our design demands.

DESIGN PARTNERS SERVICES
When you work with us, you get comprehensive service coverage. No need to scout and screen various designers and coordinate all the workflow. Instead, you can work with our team, who has established working relationships and together, we can provide consistent results.
The structure is commonly thought as being “behind the scenes”, but in reality, building composition, size, and features are heavily dependent on the structure.
Energy efficient design is becoming more critical than ever, having the right power source, systems and controls make all the difference.
Energy modeling is a cost-effective way to ensure you will get the performance that you need out of your building.
For small projects, we can facilitate any interior requirements. For large commercial projects, we recommend our specialized Interior Design partners.

DIRECTOR OF DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
- DESIGN APTITUDE
- SCHEMATIC CONCEPT DESIGN
- CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
- DEVELOPMENT COORDINATION
Typically, most designers skills are developed in a cubical of an architectural firm and is rarely grounded with practical construction knowledge. On the contrary, Jeff’s experience has provided him the opportunity to work with some of the most progressive companies in the industry, including VanMar Constructors Inc., PCL Constructors Inc., Peto MacCallum Ltd., where he diversified his experience in various positions as a project manager, assistant superintendent, field engineer, construction estimator, and building science inspector on projects throughout southern Ontario. During this time, Jeff was reviewing all disciplines of construction drawings and developed an aptitude for constructibility that now enables him to rectify drawing errors ahead of construction and truly conceptualize any building in three dimensions.
OUR TEAM STRUCTURE
Jeff is responsible for all design concepts, schematic design, design management, and coordination. Our design team is comprised of Architectural/Interior/Engineering Designers and Technical draftsmen.
For small projects, Jeff directs the construction and assigns responsibility to Trade Foremen on-site. Large projects may be comprised of a Project Manager, Project Coordinator, Site Superintendent, and Trade Forman.
Small and mid-sized land and real estate developers can benefit from leveraging our planning, design and construction team and resources. We can facilitate your needs and fill in the gaps of your development venture.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Next Era Design Studio has truly wowed me. I put my trust in Next Era Design in the Fall of 2016 after finding them on Houzz to re-design and re-think my 1890's Victorian which required a full interior gut job due to an extensive fire. Having never done an extensive re-build project such as the one I was about to venture into, the team at Next Era were great at ensuring that I was delighted at each step along the way. Whether it be the preliminary sketches, the architectural and engineering drawings, the City of Hamilton variance review and permitting process, or the attention to the detail of the overall design into to the execution of the build, I highly recommend the team at Next Era Design and if ever I do another design project they'll be first on my list of people to call.Ralph Meiers
As a custom home builder and renovator, we know that good plans are vital to the success of a project. Jeff provided clear and detailed drawings and made himself available for any questions that arose. We look forward to working with Next Era again.Nancy Cochren

Jeff has been a great resource for my husband and I as we have embarked on a major renovation project on our 60 year-old home. Jeff has been available and responsive. He is very creative and talented. Both of us would highly recommend Jeff.Kathleen + Peter
