Andrea DelZotto understands that building is as much about creating community as it is about construction. As a member of the founding family of Canada’s leading condominium developer, Tridel Group of Companies, Andrea has been immersed in the residential construction industry for most of her life. She also served as an executive at Tridel for 25 years and is currently a Director on the Tridel Group Board.
Andrea has always been very focused on driving innovation and helping to re-imagine the way people live. This led her to start Concrete Cardinal, a research, innovation and investment group that champions the well-being of communities and the individuals who live in them—with special attention given to the experiences of women and youth. Concrete Cardinal supports the invisible aspects of community building, like belonging, engagement, opportunity, physical and mental health and resilience, which are becoming the new criteria for defining what a successful community looks like.
