One of the biggest questions we hear from people when building a house is “What will this home really cost me in the end?” In the residential construction industry, there are different approaches to creating contracts and billing extras. We like to ensure homeowners compare apples to apples. At Brost, we believe in listening […]
Since our establishment in 1995, our team at Brost Developments have prided ourselves in showing customers what a wonderful experience building their custom home can be. Our intention is not to be the biggest builder, but strive to be the best! Through the years, Brost has earned much success with our approach to building personalized homes, offices, and other projects, that are tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients.
Our experience ranges from project management of the all phases of the Chinook Village complex, renovations of numerous professional offices throughout Medicine Hat, and as of the Fall 2018, we were proud to have started construction on our 209th home. A number of skilled and trained employees have joined our team over the years and are committed to bringing you the highest level of workmanship that we have earned a reputation for.
We continue today to build forward in everything we do.
Our team at Brost brings an unparalleled level of combined knowledge and experience to the construction industry in our neck of the woods. We have trained carpentry, design and financial professionals on our team ready to give you a unique, personalized building experience. We don’t want you to just fall in love with your home on move-in day, we want you to love the entire process it took to get there, and beyond.
Gerhard, the patriarch of the company has grown Brost Developments from the foundation up to the position it is today. We don’t want to age him, so we’ll just say that he comes with multiple decades of experience in the construction industry. Gerhard learned the art of construction from hands-on work and now brings his wisdom to the design table of the company. He will work with you to come up with a plan for your special project that is both mindful of your lifestyle and respectful of your budget. Gerhard is known for saying that it is always best to build it right the first time, and instills this value in our team that we put our best skills forward on all work that we complete. He truly wants all of our customers to love their home when they move in and be confident that its durability is unmatched.
There are people in this world who were born for their vocation and Aaron is definitely one of those people. Right from earning his journeyman ticket, Aaron was an award-winning carpenter that had a passion for swinging a hammer, distinct design and pushing the envelope. Aaron brings almost 2 decades of home building and design experience to the team and has had his hands on every step of the construction process. He is a driving force in our Building Forward initiative, never satisfied with the status quo. He is a committed member of the local CHBA and sits on the BILD Alberta Technical Committee. He is the background driver and bird's eye view of all of our projects, ensuring that the Mission of our company is steeped into every single one of our projects.
Tim BrostCustomer Care
With a long lineage of carpenters in Tim's family, the trade runs through his veins. He has a keen ability to solve any construction problem, which we have coined as Timgineering. When he is not solving challenges, you will get to know Tim after the completion of your home or renovation. We don’t believe that the relationship with our homeowners ends when they move in, and as such, Tim is a dedicated member of our team whose focus is to ensure everything in your home looks and works perfectly from the day you move in and beyond. He is easily accessible to answer any questions you have in operating your new home or correcting any imperfections
While we have a team of carpenters committed to ensuring our projects are built with integrity, Hilma’s design expertise makes them breathtaking. With a passion and eye for design, Hilma draws out your style and helps you translate that into a space that is unique to you. While many individuals have great taste, Hilma has the talent to pull all of the different elements together from paint to tile to flooring to cabinets and all of the details in between. Hilma never leaves you alone to navigate the jungle of design decisions, and instead jumps in the back seat to make the journey unforgettable.
Sherry Brost, CPA, CAFinance
While spreadsheets aren’t for everyone, they are an enjoyable part of the day for our resident beancounter. After earning her accounting stripes in public practice for over a decade, Sherry made the transition to the family business a number of years ago to look after the management functions of the company. So if you have questions about your billings….want to comment the company’s social media or have a non-construction question (she's leaving those to the experts on her team), she is here to help.
Victoria LeisProject Coordinator
While still young, Victoria is full of enthusiasm to develop her knowledge and experience in all facets of the construction industry. Victoria works for you behind the scenes making sure all of the proper permits and approvals are in place to get your project going as smoothly as possible. With a keen interest in the design side of our projects, she also works one-on-one with you in helping make various exterior and interior design choices. Building a home or completing a major renovation can be overwhelming, but Victoria will keep your project planned and organized so that no detail is overlooked.

"Brost Developments gets two thumbs up for the work, planning and quality they poured into the challenging project that was Eagle Butte Observatory. These guys (and gals) can do anything!".
"The day I lost my home in a devastating fire I was so hurt. I noticed another family had also lost their home to a fire - their home was rebuilt by Brost and was so well done. I told my insurance adjuster I wanted that for my rebuild as well.
In about 3 months my home was rebuilt with a crew of very skilled carpenters and carefully selected trades people. My home today is so beautiful, packed with the latest products and high-quality workmanship. I am home now and feeling so grateful for the love and care they put into my new home sweet home.
I call them Home Builders with a Heart for your Home."
"In choosing Brost, we chose a family deep rooted in integrity and even deeper rooted in the quality of the home they construct. From our initial meeting with Gerhardt, to tweaking blueprints, to walk throughs with Aaron and Tim, to material choices with Hilma, to the day to day details at the build with Tim, the effort put into a seamless transition from one task to the next was evident. Even after possession, the Brost team continues to make sure our home is exactly the way we planned and envisioned it to be."
We were fortunate enough to be able to work with Brost following a fire in our home where the only thing salvageable was the framing.
We met with many people at Brost throughout the process, all of whom were excellent at what they do. Since this repair was structured around an insurance scope, Brost went out of their way to accommodate and find alternate solutions within the budget that lead to a far superior end result. We would strongly encourage anyone considering building a new home or renovations big or to small to think of Brost. The finished product was even better than we could have anticipated, and the extra effort put in by everyone at Brost is the reason why.
"Building a new home can be a daunting task especially when you are planning to spend the majority of your future years in it. From the opening consultation, through the design process, and up to completed construction, the entire experience was fantastic. What first impressed my wife and I was the attention and customer service we received from Gerhard while trying to balance our budget and design requirements. We went back and forth on a few decisions but in no time had a completed design that we couldn’t wait to build. The construction of the home was done to an amazing quality and standard, which we got to witness first hand through weekly site visits and updates. Any questions we had were soon answered by their experienced construction team. As the process moved on, Hilma’s interior design guidance was invaluable. It opened our eyes to choices that we never would have got to on our own and do we ever love those choices today. The entire experience from start to finish was easy, stress-free and enjoyable. If a time comes when we choose to build another home I would not do it with any other home builder than Brost Developments Inc."
