Scala Development Consultant Ltd

Victoria, British Columbia


In 2004, an Urban Planner/Developer from Canada, Doug Makaroff, and an Architect/Engineer from Mexico, Ari Cota, found themselves working on a cool and highly sustainable community located in the southern Baja, called the Villages of Loreto Bay.

Doug and Ari, and their respective families had moved temporarily to Phoenix Arizona, to work at the headquarters for the development. Planners and Engineers tend to think differently from each other, (and often they don’t get along), but somehow the integration of the two disciplines resulted in a design and layout for Loreto Bay Resort, that was both, efficient and beautiful.

Ari and Doug realized that someday they would like to work together on their own projects. A few years later they both moved their families to Victoria, BC, and did just that.

After acquiring design and construction experience in three countries we found an opportunity in the Canadian market for building a company that focuses on transparent partnerships with customers. Scala eliminates unnecessary expenses and construction fees and provides value engineered services at fair prices.

One of the primary philosophies of Scala is the Integrated Design-Build model (IDB), which allows us to optimize customers’ resources, minimize timelines, and maximize the net value of investments.


We believe in building homes that are designed for the families who will live in them. Our home builders are experts in their fields and are constantly innovating processes and home designs to make our homes fit the lifestyles of individual families. Details and customization are essential in every home – including standard homes. Even small changes or adaptations will make a difference in the way the house feels, and reflects the owners’ character and personality.

Our mission is to provide excellent Customer Service through Quality, Efficiency, Innovation, and Sustainability.
