About Us


 

Van Drunen Construction Group Ltd. is a full service renovation company that prides itself on providing excellent service, solid value and outstanding craftsmanship.

Company founder, Phil Van Drunen, has over 24 years of experience in the construction industry.  His love for building began when he was only 8 years old and would build tree forts in the back yard. As soon as the fort was completed, he would take it down piece by piece and rebuild in another location.  His father would buy him a pound of nails and Phil wouldn’t be heard from for hours.

Phil got his start in the construction industry working as a labourer doing large scale commercial renovations and seismic upgrades. Within 6 months he started the BC Carpentry Apprenticeship program at BCIT. Phil moved his way up to a foreman and eventually site supervisor doing large scale commercial jobs and residential projects, mainly building high end homes in Vancouver’s west side.  In 1998, Phil started his own company focusing mainly on residential renovations and home additions. His philosophy about home building has always been that if it can be fixed, updated or enlarged, don’t tear it down.  Not only is it a more environmentally friendly option, but for him it’s a more challenging and interesting one as well.  Phil’s passion for renovation, outstanding customer service and hands-on approach to every project ensures that all work meets his high standards and the work is completed on schedule and on budget. 

 

Our goal is to make every renovation experience as stress free as possible.  We devote time to talk to our clients to determine exactly what they want to achieve. We work with a number of architects and designers, who can provide advice about design options as well as professional drawings. We believe that communication is very important in ensuring the success of each and every project. The most important aspect of our business is to have a satfisfied home owner and to ensure that their home is one that they are proud to show for years to come.
