Brett Sheffer – Career Biography
“One Entrepreneur’s Story”

Mr. Sheffer has been active in the construction industry since 1979 when he migrated to Edmonton, Alberta and worked as a drywall installer. Mr. Sheffer traveled from Texas, USA to Uranium City, NWT for various drywall/steel stud projects and worked in Vancouver at the 1980 Expo grounds and Vancouver Stock Exchange installing special acoustical flooring.

Upon returning to Nova Scotia he owned and operated his own company in the drywall and steel stud industry. Mr. Sheffer was an integral part of such development as Summer Gardens, in Halifax and many of the Highland Park Apartment complexes in Dartmouth. One of Mr. Sheffer’s final contributions to the drywall/steel stud industry was as a project leader on the Barrington Gate project, in Halifax, where he coordinated the work of steel stud installations, insulation/vapor barrier, drywall and taping, spraying ceilings, painting and trim work.

From 1986 through 1996 Mr. Sheffer built a number of single-family residences. In 1997 Nickkels Contracting focused in earnest on the single-family market and Mr, Sheffer became a prominent builder in communities like Keystone Village, Hampstead Court and Auburn Drive during this time.

The result is the remarkable Cheltonham Village located along King and Wentworth Streets, and bordering Alderney Drive. This development was the forerunner to many other successful condominium projects in the Downtown Dartmouth area.

Other projects by Mr. Sheffer include the Windmill Road Townhouses located at 69 through 79 Windmill Rd., in Dartmouth and completed in December 2004. Another four unit complex was completed in 2007 at 81-87 Windmill Rd.
