MEET THE TEAM
After immigrating to Canada from Austria with his parents at the age of 4, Fred grew up in Bralorne, a small mining town in the interior of BC. Family and community values were instilled at a very young age, as Fred’s father (a cabinet furniture maker) demonstrated the importance of diligence, integrity, and relationships in building a successful life in a small town.
Though Fred credits his father and small-town experiences with reinforcing the value of hard work and partnership, he always yearned for greater challenges. To this end, the moved to Vancouver and eventually began working with a small house builder where he found his true passion. After completing an apprenticeship in construction, he began working on diverse projects including shopping centres and sawmills and eventually he started his own business.
Fred is often reminded of the challenges he faced growing up in an immigrant family and how he learned the value of honesty, integrity, and attention to detail. He is proud that TPC 2000 Ventures Inc. is founded on these principles and that he has built a thriving general contracting and construction management firm through his reputation for quality work and word-of-mouth referrals. He endeavours to maintain lasting relationships with his clients and tradespeople through an unwavering commitment to quality work, exceptional performance, and fair prices.
If you ask Greg, he’ll tell you he comes by the excitement of construction honestly; after all, he’s followed in his father’s footsteps. Growing up, he saw the hard work and dedication his father put into his family-owned construction business and would often dedicate his own free time (including weekends and days off from school) to help with the family business. Construction has always been his passion.
Within 2 years of finishing high school, Greg had completed his carpentry apprenticeship and then experimented in different areas of construction including forming, framing, and siding. Greg has always appreciated the satisfaction of making his customers’ visions a reality and felt especially satisfied working in forming and framing as daily progress toward these visions was tangible.
Eventually, Greg was given the opportunity to experience the building process from a bigger picture perspective and developed a keen interest in managing projects from beginning to end including budgeting, breaking ground, and eventually presenting the finished product to the owner. In 21 years since he first entered the construction business, he still feels excited not only by his portfolio of success in home renovations, high end custom homes, multi-family dwellings, commercial projects, institutional projects, and exterior envelopes, but also by the prospect of building new relationships and completing construction projects that meet the highest standards of quality.
And like his father, Greg credits his core family values and European heritage that embraces quality, craftsmanship, respect, honesty, and integrity in every project he manages regardless of the size or scope.
