What a great team!

We are very proud of our group of guys and girls that make up the Fire Ant team.  

We are a diverse team of talented people from a variety of back grounds, many of which who have been with us for many years.  Lots of our return clients love seeing the same faces come back to complete further phases of their home renovations. 

Our team is divided up between the office and various job sites in Calgary and the surrounding areas.

Thank you Team Fire Ant for the great job that you do!

Dedicated to our customers.

Jack Davies

1st August 1953 – 17th June 2016

It is with great sadness that we announce the news of the passing of our colleague and friend Jack Davies. Jack died peacefully in his sleep on Friday 17th June 2016. On behalf of us here at Fire Ant we have passed on our heartfelt condolences to his family especially his children and wife of over 40 years, Anne....

Jack will be deeply missed here; leaving behind fond memories of working together as an integral part of the Fire Ant team. Jack worked at the Calgary Herald for 39 years and joined the Fire Ant team in February 2014. Jack always had a smile on his face and was highly regarded by everyone he had the opportunity to meet. Jack was a great role model; he was loyal, hardworking, reliable as well as being very skillful.

This is truly a great loss to our company and to the community as a whole.

Christmas Adventure!

January 2016

What a fun adventure!

We took our hardworking Fire Ant team to beautiful Golden in British Columbia as a post Christmas celebration.  It was a great opportunity to relax and enjoy each other's company without the usual distractions.  We went snow mobiling, skiing, snow boarding and shared delicious home cooked food.


It's a Girl!

"Thank you for your excellent work and the courtesy of all the workers"

We just received this lovely hand-written note from one of our happy customers.  We renovated this customer's beautiful river-front home in Bowness after the devastating 2013 flood.  We are so pleased that this customer is now able to enjoy their custom renovation by Fire Ant Contracting.  

We love our happy customers

Relationship: Client

Project Date: December 2012

Project Price Range: more than $100,000

We have been fortunate enough to have worked on three projects with Ed Bushnell of Fire Ant Contracting. This company delivers what it promises and on-time for the price quoted - which is rare in this industry. Ed carefully walked us through our decisions and was honest in his feedback about our expectations for the renovation. His crew were respectful while working in my home and always left our home and property in good shape at the end of the day. Any concerns that arose were dealt with immediately. We couldn't have been happier. Very much looking forward to completing the Master bath next!
