Bremel Homes: A History

We built our first house in 1996. Then another one a few years later and it started from there. Nearly 17 years later, Bremel Homes Ltd., owned and operated by Mel and Brenda Podolchyk, have continued to build several spec and custom homes, including many renovation projects in the Town of Onoway, St. Albert, County of Lac Ste. Anne and Parkland, and recently in the prestigious Cameron Heights subdivision in the City of Edmonton.

Throughout the years, both Mel and Brenda have gained and acquired extensive construction knowledge and experience with various house styles, sizes, architectural design, products/finishes and mechanical systems in a challenging industry. Bremel Homes has built small starter homes to high-end custom homes. As a small builder, they have done everything from site cleanup, even trade work at the early beginnings, including electrical, painting, finishing, tile and stone work. As the years progressed a team of qualified Tradesman with long relationships to Bremel Homes Ltd., have completed the team providing excellent quality workmanship and service.

During the 17 years, Mel and Brenda both have had a "hands-on" management system that works for each home built and still maintain that style today, as there are no employees and each home is personally managed by Mel and Brenda. With being a small builder they have experience with all phases of residential construction and have done everything from the design and basic drafting process, estimating/purchasing, contract administration, sales and marketing, customer relations and warranty to site supervision and management of all trades and suppliers.

Mel is a Journeyman Electrician by trade from NAIT, has been in the construction business for years and brings valuable knowledge and experience to each home built. His understanding of residential construction practices under the demanding Alberta Building Code and warranty programs, is evident in the quality of homes built working closely with all Trades involved.

Brenda brings years of business management/ administration and Interior Design expertise to the business having completed several programs at the University of Alberta. From the foundation to finishing and selling the home, Brenda participates with all the Trades and clients during the whole process. Being creative with Interior Design skills, each home has been built with customized features and quality finishes that sets a standard for each home built by Bremel Homes Ltd.
