Phil Lapointe

Partner

I was fortunate enough to begin working with a fantastic company right out of high school. From the very beginning of my career I was exposed to some of Vancouver’s most beautiful homes, and my mentors consistently focused on best building practices. With a family background that encourages entrepreneurship and lifelong learning, I started my first construction business in 2004 and have never looked back. I have really enjoyed working with families and developers, getting their projects from paper to real life. A special interest of mine is planning and preparing every aspect of a project— whether it’s a small deck or a condo renovation— and experimenting with processes and techniques to see how quickly I can complete something. As a consultant on some amazing homes, I have developed an eye and an ability to bring all the components of a home together very precisely.
