Ritchie Construction was formed in 2013 to service the diverse Vancouver market. Ritchie is managed by two brothers that have been a part of the building industry for the past 10 years. Pulling from their depth of experience and building vision Nicholas and Chris Hill have a clear goal to create exceptional residential projects throughout the Lower Mainland focusing on quality craftsmanship, efficient project management systems, implementing sustainable technologies and creating solid relationships with all clients.
Continuing to build on the tradition of building excellence, Ritchie Construction is an affiliate company of Ritchie Custom Homes located in the South Okanagan of BC.
We’re confident that the first thing you’ll notice about us is how interested we are in you. It’s a deeply held belief of ours that we can’t do our job well if we don’t know you well. Our objective is not to come ready with our own agenda on the first meeting, it’s simply to come armed with the expertise we carry in this industry and be ready to offer suggestions to help you build the home of your dreams.
From start to finish, our building process is an open book. We don’t have anything to hide. While that may sound like lip service, it’s important you know that clear and timely communication is a cornerstone to our process. When you have the correct information in real-time, it affords you the chance to make informed decisions. We make sure to consider the technical and design aspects of your project before presenting options. There’s no element of surprise at the end of the project. We also think it’s to your advantage to have an objective perspective during a process this personal. With so many options, there are moments that can be overwhelming and emotional. We’re here to present the facts and offer our unbiased perspective so you can have clarity in your decision making!
One of the more obvious areas where you’ll see our value for relationships and transparency is in our fixed fees. We often fix our management fees based on the scope of each project in the spirit of keeping from up selling. It allows you to feel the freedom to change your minds as more options ineviteibly arise in the building process.
We are sure you have heard horror stories (and maybe have some of your own) about the building process. You can rest easier knowing that our intentionality to this partnership does not stop when you sign a contract. We’re committed to site cleanliness and organization so that you feel more confident in the messier phases of the process. We hand select craftsmen for all the little details that make your home feel so personal. Our team takes pride in executing the design elements that are important to you. The level of pride and respect you’ll find of our tradespeople is unmatched. It’s not uncommon for our clients to make special bonds with the trades. We welcome you to join us in what, we feel, is one of the most positive and satisfying work environments around.
