Mattamy Homes - Ottawa
One product, lovingly crafted, humbly sold, then proudly owned. That's how it starts for most companies. That's how it started for Mattamy Homes in 1978.
Today, Mattamy Homes is recognized as North America's largest privately owned home builder. We have 90,000 homeowners in hundreds of communities. We make places people are proud to call home.
THE MATTAMY STORY
Years ago, founder Peter Gilgan took a look around and saw an opportunity to create something unique in a world of uniformity. We got to where we stand today by examining every aspect of home building we could imagine, and beginning to do it better.
Mr. Gilgan studied home design concepts from all over North America, particularly that of a growing movement. Named New Urbanism it called for homes to be more individual in character, designed into friendlier communities, infused with integrated green space, and with consideration given to people over cars. Our initial foray into this approach resulted in community design with lots configured by width not depth.
WideLot™ homes helped Mattamy evolve into Canada's largest builder of new homes.
Today, Mattamy is rigorous about every single aspect of community planning. We acquire the land, design the homes, plan the streets, and we create the people spaces—the walking and biking trails, parks, and other community features.
Still, our process remains unchanged in one fundamental way. We continue to keep our eyes, ears, and minds open. We talk to our future and present homeowners to completely understand diverse and evolving styles of living. And we continually attempt to provide for you the best, most liveable spaces with everything we learn.
