Projects

  • As a structural engineer, my company provides many services including, residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial projects for a wide range of clients.  In 2010, after hearing a positive review about FirCrest Developments, I decided to contact them for a retaining structure project in Coquitlam. Their level of professionalism impressed me (always on time), and they had an expert level knowledge, regarding building codes and municipal permits to get the job done right and on schedule. Today, I can proudly say I’ve worked with FirCrest Developments on multiple ventures; if anyone is looking for a general contracting company that delivers in service abilities and has rock-solid values, look no further than FirCrest Developments.

  • In 2012, I was looking to have a home built for my wife and myself in West Vancouver. Whilst searching for a reputable construction company, I met Jack Gibson, Owner of FirCrest Developments. He was building three houses in my neighbourhood; I spoke to all three homeowners and they all recommended FirCrest Developments very highly to me. I proceeded to hire FirCrest, making a detailed contract and everything went extremely well. They completed construction on time and on budget. The highly skilled, professional working crew displayed good manners and created an excellent working environment for everyone. I strongly recommend FirCrest Developments to my friends and anybody else looking to have work done.

  • FirCrest Developments was recommended to us by our structural engineer to construct a new retaining wall to replace the failed existing one.  Ultimately we chose Jack Gibson because he was able to lay out the requirements for the wall with a comprehensive quote detailing all aspects of the construction process. We were kept informed of all processes involved in the construction. Challenges were overcome by Jack’s vast experience in construction to use other options when necessary like the placement of the concrete pumper truck to minimize traffic obstructions. We would highly recommend FirCrest Developments given the finished product clearly shows the precise workmanship put into it.

  • I hired FirCrest Developments to construct a large home in West Vancouver for us. Working with Jack and his crew proved to be an excellent experience.  Every day, the crew arrived on time and performed their tasks with diligence, efficiency and an excellent level of expertise.  Jack instills very good work ethics in his crew and I found them all to be polite, professional and hard workers; the project finished on time and on budget. I do not hesitate to recommend FirCrest to my friends because I know they deliver all required services with integrity and efficiency.

  • Our organization chose FirCrest Developments to handle an emergency situation. When our initial contractor dropped the ball on the construction of our new hiking centre located in Pacific Spirit Park, near UBC, FirCrest saved the day! Our project was completed professionally, on time, with quality that easily met all building standards and accessibility requirements. Because he and his crew were able to communicate effectively and quickly turn a negative situation into a very positive outcome, I would highly recommend the services of Jack Gibson and FirCrest Developments.
