Heritage Restorations Vancouver
FairTradeWorks is a construction project management service for residential and commercial clients who are building new structures or renovating. Our portfolio is vast and ranges from the smallest bathroom renovations to heritage restorations to brand new luxury homes. Our team is made up of many experienced, forward-thinking construction professionals who come to us from different construction backgrounds and areas of expertise. Our Commercial Advisors have built everything from retail and flagship stores to malls, hotels, schools, and luxury waterfront resorts around the world.
One of our areas of expertise are heritage restorations. Vancouver is known for having many heritage and character homes. Because of this, the City of Vancouver is committed to protecting them. A heritage home is considered “heritage” based on the historic value or significance for past, present, and future generations. Alterations can be made to heritage buildings, however, there are special guidelines and policies that are required in order to make any changes.
At FairTradeWorks, we take the existing foundation, frame, and features of heritage homes, and modernize them, all while keeping their original charm. We help our clients navigate through the strict by-laws, complicated house lifts, and additions to the foundation in order to meet code. We believe every heritage home has its own story, and for that reason, it’s important to preserve as much as we can.
As part of our portfolio, we’ve worked on many projects including one of the oldest heritage homes in Vancouver – The Rosemary. We’ve also been featured in The Globe & Mail for a Kitsilano heritage house-lift.
