We are a Vancouver, B.C., based company that specializes in the construction and renovation of single-family homes. With over 25 years of experience and more than 200 completed projects we have become one of Vancouver’s more reputable building companies for single family homes. Over the years our focus on quality, building excellence and style has been recognized by both the city of Vancouver and Vancouver’s HomeBuilders association, winning a variety of prestigious awards at Vancouver’s annual Georgie Awards.
Unlike many other builders, we have the experience and know-how to build a variety of homes, ranging from modest 1,100 square foot homes to 16,000 square foot Shaughnessy mansions (Vancouver’s most prestigious real-estate area).
Our passion for quality and superior customer service has led many families to build their second and third homes with us. We recently completed a custom home, commissioned by a young man who grew up in two family homes built by Bela during the '80s and the '90s.
This makes him one of the many second generation customers who have come to appreciate our quality and customer service.
Unlike most homebuilders who subcontract out all of the work, we have full-time carpenters, painters and labourers on staff, which gives us the capability to do our own foundation, framing, painting, interior finishing, custom architectural millwork installation and architectural concrete formwork. With an extensive range of skilled workers on payroll, we are able to mobilize more efficiently and gain better control over the final quality of our homes in terms of dimensional accuracy and final finish.
Bela is also an exclusive importer of custom architectural millwork and furniture from DECCA Ltd. Many of our high end homes are decorated with exquisite woodwork designed by local designers then fabricated by DECCA and installed by our experienced installers (Custom designed furniture to match home decor can also be supplied). Many of our homes also feature faux finishes and murals and special surface treatments like cracked finishes, antiquing and gilding.
With more than 30 years experience in construction and registered as a professional engineer from UBC, Bela's owner/president is able to understand and explain technical knowledge, issues with soil, structural, mechanical systems and building sciences to owners and can provide valuable advice and support to homeowners building more complex and sophisticated homes. As a company dedicated to pushing architectural limits, Bela has constructed homes with structural steel as well as reinforced concrete framing, elevators, swimming pools (both outdoor and indoor ones with proper de-humidifiers), ponds and water features. In addition, we have constructed homes on sites with problematic soil which require pilings, blasting and anchoring. Furthermore, we have provided engineer certification to the City for different phases of construction, not only for homes we have built, but also for homes built by other builders.
We are licensed with the Home Protection Office as well as registered with Work Safe BC.
