Primera Projects was founded on the principles of embracing innovation while building on (what is now considered traditional) values of accountability, transparency and integrity.
With the use of technology, we are making clients' construction experience more enjoyable. Our goal is to eliminate client frustration with the old, settled stereotypes and "systems" of the construction industry. Our online portal for clients delivers everything that they will need to stay informed throughout their build.
Managing Partner / Construction Manager
Richard’s passion for construction began at a young age. Whether it was watching others build or helping with the family renovations, it was clear becoming a builder was his path. While finishing high school, he started his journey to become a Red Seal Certified Carpenter. After completing his Red Seal, Richard’s hard work ethic quickly accelerated his career into working for one of the larger construction management firms in Vancouver as a Junior Superintendent. Richard eventually relocated his family to Kelowna to pursue his dream of becoming a custom builder. He spent many years managing numerous projects for a well known custom builder before co-founding Primera.
His determination to build smarter, better, and greener continues to separate him from others in the industry.
Richard is responsible for the following aspects of your project:
