About Us

Southstone Development Group was founded in 2011 in Austin, Texas by Alexander Canalini who had a vision to combine art, science and technology to improve the construction industry. In tandem with his love of entrepreneurship, these things allow him to look at the construction industry with a unique view. Alex is constantly implementing new, forward-thinking strategies to make Southstone a very efficient and exceptional company.

Alexander was born in Peru and raised in Washington, DC. It was in Washington that he began his construction career in the commercial general contracting world, specifically the Federal Government Sector. He has worked with many high profile clients, and has successfully managed over a billion dollars worth of projects before founding Southstone Development Group.

Our Inspiration

As a highly driven project manager, Alex was surprised by the lack of technology, communication, workmanship, and attention to detail he could see in most commercial contractors' work. Within this, Alex saw an opportunity to bring value to that space, thus he decided to start his own commercial painting and trades company where he could create and give service at the level he expected of others but couldn’t find.

As an avid reader and learner, Alex gets inspiration from exercise, nature, podcasts and books, and loves developing new ways of making Southstone Development Group the best commercial painting and trades company in Austin and beyond.


Our Approach

Moving the commercial painting industry into the future.
