Our History

Based in Barrie, Ontario, Aline General Contractors Ltd has been in business since 2006. We have built more than 500 waterfront and acreage custom homes and our experience has resulted in a solid reputation for top-quality products, trades and services that will make your custom home an exciting project you will remember for a lifetime.

Aline General Contractors Ltd. is headed by General Manager, John Holgate. With experience in both residential and commercial construction spanning 35 years, John is a capable and dependable individual. Under his guidance, Aline has become a specialist in residential design/build projects for custom homes, additions and renovations.

With a vast knowledge and understanding of today’s construction market John has made Aline into a good choice for all of the top preengineered custom home packages as their custom builder. In particular, his association with Lindal Cedar Homes and Normercia Building Designs have led to over 300 of these timber frame home products being completed by Aline.


When we design, we take our design cue from nature herself. the highest compliment we can receive is having our structures, whether private residences or office complexes, be in harmony with their surroundings.
