Meet Nate


Get to know Nate! Nate is our Construction Supervisor. If you have been on our build site or have been involved in building one of our homes, you have chatted with Nate. He is the person making sure that Habitat Red Deer homes are built!


Nate's role with Habitat Red Deer is Construction Supervisor. Nate is responsible for new home residential construction, which means that he is responsible for building the new homes that our families buy. The current residential construction project is two duplexes in Red Deer Evergreen. Nate takes care of everything that falls under the construction umbrella, from project planning and management to key turnover. Nate will start a new housing project by supporting the inception plan design and continue to support the project to completion. Some of the pieces he supports along the way are mechanical specifications, energy modelling, on-site construction, trades coordination, material procurement and Tender bids. Nate also leads our TeamBUILD days, supporting volunteers in learning how to use tools and build in a safe way.


Nate likes that he is able to take his construction experience and skill set acquired over his past 25 years in the field and apply it to Habitat Homes. Nate feels he can do more when building a Habitat Home because he knows Habitat Red Deer is an organization with a good model for helping families. Nate likes to make an impact in the community he lives in and in a way he finds sustainable and successful.



Nate would like more people in the community to know that we at Habitat Red Deer and Habitat for Humanity affiliates across Canada have a model that provides people with a hand-up, not a handout. This means that we are not just giving away free houses; rather we are supporting families with the tools to buy and own their homes. The success of this model is reflected in the families after they have stable housing and can start building equity. As a result of the program, the children of families who partner with Habitat have more opportunities for education and have more opportunities to be successful long term. The impact of the program is multigenerational, giving the community benefits for years to come.
