About Us


Committed to working hard to deliver your desired results everyday – they truly are the heart of our business.

  • Brian Maclean – President

    Brian’s interest in homes and construction first started in 2007 when he was doing residential electrical for local home builder Scott MacDonald of Scott Arthur Homes. As a master electrician and owner of MacLean Electrical at the time, Brian had spent for over 14 years in the trade. He then decided to pursue his interest in construction and design, and began Newground Developments in June of 2010. Soon after, he and his wife Ashley purchased Scott Arthur Homes in hopes to continue the long-time legacy Scott MacDonald had created over 20 years in Edmonton.

    Today Brian is happy to continue building Scott Arthur Georgian homes, but also excited to expand and build all different styles of homes. In his spare time Brian likes to spend his time at home with his family or on the golf course.

  • Ashley MacLean – Administration and Client Services

    Although new to construction and design, family business is something Ashley is very familiar with. After spending 13 years working with her family in their local Sobeys grocery stores, Ashley learned a lot about customer service, administration, managing a team and family balance. When her husband approached Ashley with the idea to work together to build Newground Developments it was a no brainer. Today Ashley is in charge of all the administration, accounting, and client services.

    If you can’t find Ashley in the office, she will usually be driving around her 2 young children to school, dance, karate or music, or perhaps in a yoga class to balance it all out.

  • Jeff Machin – Senior Project Manager

    Jeff joins Newground with a wealth of construction experience having most recently worked with another luxury home builder in the Edmonton area.
    Jeff is a graduate of NAIT’s Construction Engineering Technology program and also has a carpentry background and has been managing construction projects for over 10 years. He has a proven track record in delivering multi-million-dollar commercial, industrial and residential construction projects, from concept through completion.

    When he’s not making things happen on a construction site, Jeff enjoys spending time with his wife and two boys at the lake.

  • Jason L’heureux – Site Superintendent.

    Jason developed a strong work ethic at an early age working in equipment maintenance alongside his grandfather at a golf club in White Rock, BC. This experience ignited a passion for turf management which turned into a 20 year career with some of the top golf courses in Canada including Jasper Park Lodge and Blackhawk Golf Club. Despite these wonderful opportunities, Jason was ready to make a change and sought the opportunity to apply his experience and broad skill set towards a new industry. Jason has enjoyed being Site Superintendent for the Newground Team since 2014 where he manages the daily on-site operations of each new home build to ensure exceptional quality and service delivery.

    Outside of work, Jason enjoys travelling, golf and spending time with his wife Danielle and their young daughter Madelyn.
