About Us

Our company originated way back in 1932 when the founders began providing drywall, steel stud framing, and acoustic ceiling services throughout British Columbia and across Canada.

Now operating under the fourth generation of owners, this proud family business has expanded into three companies offering complete range of construction services including:

  • general contracting
  • demolition
  • steel stud and drywall

From the starting strip out to the finishing room clean, our pros ensure that our service is on point and that we complete your project on budget and on time.

TBI also specializes in construction management and are well suited to tackle your next commercial, residential project. With a portfolio of dedicated sub-trades and in-house teams, TBI is able to uniquely adapt to the demands of  whatever construction, service, maintenance and management challenges we are presented with.

We are committed to providing controlled, premium quality of workmanship on every project large or small and take great pride in meeting and exceeding our client’s expectations.
