The Taggart Group:

Building Values

For more than 60 years, The Taggart Group has been satisfying clients across

Eastern Ontario and the St. Lawrence Valley with professionalism, technical expertise, and value.

Harold Taggart laid the foundation for Taggart construction when he started building homes in the 40s. After noticing a lack of excavation services, he bought a bulldozer and started Taggart Construction’s specialized engineering work.

Fired by his enthusiasm, Taggart Construction flourished and provided the energy for the continuing growth of The Taggart Group.

Integrated Strength and Reliability

• We confirm our reputation with every project

Our family name and our reputation are at risk on every project. We take that responsibility seriously and ensure that every step is done right.

• We have proven ourselves over time

Over 30 of our staff have been with us more than 25 years. This is a testament to the depth of our organization and the experience of our people.

• We apply broad expertise

We have more MBAs, CAs, P.Engs, M.Plans & LLBs than any other local development firm, and all provide their professional knowledge and training in all aspects of our business. We share best practices across business lines, and we rely on our strength in technical expertise.

• We regenerate our passion and enthusiasm

In the last three years, we have refreshed our organization with the ideas and energy of over 120 new people.

From heritage projects to high tech, Doran is continually ranked as superior by clients and industry professionals who consistently praise the Doran team for dependability, resourceful solutions, and safety.

But we are not content to rest on our reputation.

This Green Building Rating System was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and provides a set of standards for environmentally sustainable construction.


Of course, you want a trouble-free

project with no surprises. That’s a

given. Just tell us what you want

done and by when. We are an old,

established company always looking

to the future. We have experience,

expertise, and often become the team

leader on a project, even if it isn’t set

up that way.

Bill Pieterson, President, Doran Construction Limited

A Home-Building Legacy

Tamarack has inherited a demanding legacy.

Over 60 years ago, Harold Taggart decided to build exceptional homes. Traveling through those communities six decades later, you can still see the enduring pride of ownership inspired by a man who set high standards in quality construction and customer satisfaction.

Today, Tamarack has taken customer service to a new level in Ottawa, Kanata, Stittsville, and Kingston with over 400 new housing starts per year. We are building communities, one home at a time.

We build for the lifestyle of the future. An open concept first floor so you can interact with your family from anywhere in the room. Family areas instead of formal living rooms. Increased opportunity to customize your home. This is Tamarack.

Six decades from now, you will see that Taggart-inspired pride of ownership in the homes Tamarack is building today. Innovative designs. Quality craftsmanship. Attention to detail. These are the hallmarks of a Tamarack home.


We Listen

And, to make sure we continually improve, Tamarack conducts new owner surveys reaching back two years. These surveys measure:

• Sales Representatives

• Paperwork and the Buying Process

• Tamarack’s Exclusive Home Owners Manual • Customizing Your Home in the Design Centre • Design Elements of the New Home

• Quality

• The Home Closing Process • Customer Service

We build quality homes in quality communities that are good investments. Houses that people are proud to call home. Harold Taggart would be proud.



Tamarack is also proud to be leading the way in ENERGY STAR homes.

ENERGY STAR for New Homes is an initiative to promote energy-efficient home building backed by Natural Resources Canada. This program is supported by Tamarack as a way to offer a more energy-efficient home to our customers.

Performance tested, third party verified and government backed—the ENERGY STAR for New Homes label is your assurance that your new home is built to exacting, energy-efficient guidelines.

Reducing Your

Carbon Footprint

Thanks to reduced energy use, an ENERGY STAR qualified home saves two to three tonnes of global warming greenhouse gases over a house built to the minimum Ontario Building Code. Smart home buyers are working with responsible home builders to help change the world.

Our New Culture

of Conservation

ENERGY STAR for New Homes can be a vital contributor to the culture of conservation that is taking root in Ontario. If we can help ease the demand for power, we all win.

ENERGY STAR is a dramatic improvement in indoor air quality and energy efficiency. And you’ll find it in every home that Tamarack builds.


The Legacy Continues

Happy people in quality homes, that’s our goal.

Customers are demanding more, they have an

expectation of higher service than they used to,

and they want more customization. That’s what

we deliver.

Chris Taggart, President,


We believe strongly in the community concept

and develop neighbourhoods that truly reflect the

natural amenities. We understand the true value

of each new home really comes from the rich

lifestyles we help create.

personal service to help you

build your future, worry-free.
