Community

We believe in the power of community.

We thrive on building developments that are an integral part of the urban environment. Our engagement with community groups and organizations, and our support and patronage of local events and local artists are part of our broader purpose: to build community, not just buildings.

Sponsorships. We want to make a positive, lasting contribution to the communities in which we build. Our ongoing sponsorships of public events, performances, and local activities help build community and strengthen the bonds that bring people together. We have a long history of sponsorship throughout the regions in which we work. Our most recent sponsorships include:
Esquimalt Farmers Market
Mayors’ Food Bank Challenge (Lower Mainland)
Uptown Live (New Westminster)
Festivals Kelowna
Meet me on Bernard (Kelowna)
• Sponsorship of a Ukrainian Family

Public art. We believe our developments should be more than simply buildings. Rather, they should be places that enhance the lives of the people who work and live in them. That’s why we include public art in our developments: art not only elevates our designs, it surprises and delights the people who live and work there, enriching their experience of the spaces we create.

We want our art to tell a story: to enhance our understanding of an area’s history, or add another chapter in the ongoing narrative of a given neighbourhood.

Working closely with our consultant Jan Ballard, we focus our efforts largely (though not exclusively) on local artists, creating a lasting connection with the communities in which we build. 

Some of our art installations include:

Memberships. Our goal is to be a “local” developer in the communities in which we build. By joining local industry groups and community organizations that support and promote local businesses, we can be part of a continuing conversation about how to make our living and working spaces more enjoyable.
