  • Falcon Homes showcases Brickwater at the Village, a four-phased development in the city center of Maple Ridge designed around an impressive courtyard with public art, water features, extensive gardens, pedestrian, bike friendly pathways and the convenience of street level shopping, restaurants, and services.
  • Kemp Construction Management Ltd. makes the old new again with its 2,100-square-foot transitional style, original Pan-Abode home, which was doubled in size in a day using a panelized wall process.
  • My House Design Build Team Ltd used a holistic approach to restore a New Westminster character home, rebuilding from the ground up to transform this 1940s bungalow into a brand new BuiltGreen home registered in 2020.
  • Roadhouse Homes Ltd offers a breath of fresh air in the 2018 Georgie Winner ‘Best Kitchen Renovation’, a modern home in which the team completely transformed 2554 square feet of living area into open modern space.
  • Sarah Gallop Design Inc introduces a Castle on the Hill, a luxurious 10,000-square-foot traditional home featuring rich, high-end custom finishes throughout, a massive double island gourmet kitchen and a home sited to capture breathtaking panoramic views.

The Parade offers the convenience of meeting multiple contractors at the same time through video chat and follow-up meetings, to ask questions and help bring your ideas into reality.”

By pre-registering, consumers will receive a link that will allow them to log-on to the Parade at their convenience 24/7 for the duration of the Parade. Each builder/designer will post times they will be available for video chat during the Parade and will also offer the option for a consumer to request a follow-up call to discuss a project, simply by clicking on a button.
