Our Solutions

Avvio Fine Homes designs and builds quality custom homes in the Greater Toronto Area.  Avvio is Tarion-registered and therefore licensed to build new homes in Ontario; Avvio-built homes for sale (Agreement of Purchase and Sale) come with a Tarion Warranty (see note below regarding Contract Homes).  Avvio is also a member of BILD (The Building Industry and Land Development Association) and adheres to its Code of Ethics.

Avvio recognizes the importance in your life of building a home, and the need to ensure that the project is executed to meet that high standard.  Poorly designed and managed builds can result in significant stress and frustration for the homeowner, as well as substantial risk.  These include: long project turnarounds, exceeded budgets, client service issues, poor quality, warranty issues, worker injury, legal and insurance risks, and even an uninhabitable home.  We work to protect you from these unwanted outcomes.  And, together, we will ensure that your vision comes to life. 

Contact us if you want to build the home of your dreams.

Design Build

Avvio uses its Design Build Process to meet agreed-upon expectations, including project budget, completion date, quality and communication.  The design phase of the process features professional architectural designs, which are created by our own designer and Partner Vincent Gambino, or by leading architects and designers.  In either case, Avvio will manage the design phase. See note below regarding Tarion Warranty coverage on Contract Homes.

Project Management

If you have a design for your new home or are thinking of working with a third-party architectural designer, Avvio Fine Homes provides Project Management services to execute the building of your home.  These services include:  budgeting, material & finish selection, permitting, contract tendering & administration, scheduling, site management, and quality control.  Get us involved as early as possible so that we can add value to every stage of the project, including the design phase. See note below regarding Tarion Warranty coverage on Contract Homes.


Contact us if you are looking to buy land for the purpose of building a new custom home or if you are looking to sell land that may or may not have an existing dwelling.  Avvio Fine Homes specializes in infill development; taking land that was previously used for residential or other uses, and transforming it into residential serviced land and/or homes for sale. 

Note regarding Tarion Warranty coverage for Contract Homes: as every custom home project is different, Tarion Warranty coverage is determined on a case-by-case basis. Tarion Warranty Corporation will be consulted during the sales process in order to establish the applicability of warranty coverage.
