About Us

Newground Developments is a custom home builder serving Edmonton and surrounding areas.

Newground was launched in February of 2011 by Brian and Ashley MacLean.  It began when the entrepreneurial couple decided to pursue their longtime dream of home building, and purchase Scott Arthur Homes from Edmonton builder Scott MacDonald.  MacDonald had built over 50 homes in Edmonton since 1993.  He had an affinity for classic architecture and the traditional Georgian style home.  Brian and Ashley loved this unique product, and when Scott retired they wanted to continue the legacy he had built.  The vision of the company didn’t end there though.  The MacLean’s also wanted to expand and modernize the company by doing all different styles and scopes of projects.  And so, Newground Developments was created.  The vision for Newground is to have 2 premier collections for clients to choose from when deciding to build their dream home.  For more details on the 2 collections, see our custom homes section.
