Commercial and Office
Commercial enterprises can become landmarks that define a cityscape where business and commerce is conducted. For greater than 60 years the Farmer Group of Companies has been pouring the foundation of many commercial projects throughout the Capital Region, Vancouver Island and the lower mainland.
Often one of the more interesting and challenging aspects of multi-story construction is the work in the ground. Our experienced associates are capable of creating “in-house” much of the conceptual design associated with the shoring, underpinning and seismic restraint anchors commonly required for these types of structures, thus enabling us to minimize the time and cost to complete this work.
Our residential building experience is expansive. As the General Contractor building single family homes or as the Construction Manager of massive community development projects like Dockside Green we are proud members of the teams that have redefined the urban residential landscape of our modern communities. Our more recently completed residential projects include the Shoal Point development at the gateway to Victoria’s Inner Harbour, The Juliet downtown Victoria and phase 1 of Aquattro on the Esquimalt Lagoon in Colwood British Columbia.
Factories and hydro dams, mines and bridges, we are proud to have been a part of the teams that poured the foundation for some notable industrial and civil infrastructure developments throughout British Columbia.
We specialize in training Estimators, Project Managers and Field Supervisors to service our clients’ needs in areas such as renovations, restorations and heritage reproductions.
