Nicholas Bishop

Project Manager

Nicholas was first introduced to construction as a teen by his grandfather and began working in the industry straight out of high school. He got his start as a general labourer, then worked as an apprentice carpenter before enrolling BCIT’s carpentry program. 

Upon graduation, Nicholas opened his own framing business, taking on projects throughout the lower mainland. He also offered general construction services to homeowners, specializing in bathroom renovation, tile services and high-quality finishings. 

A passion for building beautiful things and understanding how things work and come together, he is continually upgrading his skill set by researching new building products and methods. He dreams of studying Architecture one day.

Justin Hoskins

Lead Carpenter

For as long as he can remember, Justin has always been taking things apart and rebuilding them to make them better.  Plus, growing up in a home that was always under construction made him very comfortable in this environment.  

At the age of 20, Justin started making other people’s homes better by learning trades like drywalling, painting, flooring, and tile work. From small to big renovations, to framing, to hobbies like blacksmithing, Justin has a wide range of expertise in the construction industry. 

His varied experience enables him to problem-solve effectively and fix just about anything. Plus, his keen eye for detail and pride in his work gives clients the results they expect and deserve.
