Since 1973, VanMar has been building quality and luxurious homes for Canadians.
In 1973, the Van Maren brothers launched their construction firm, ‘Van Maren Construction’. From modest beginnings in framing and concrete construction, they quickly built a reputation for delivering high quality, on time and on budget – which helped develop loyal, repeat clients.
In 2002, two of the brothers decided to concentrate on their financing and development businesses. Art Van Maren continued to pursue his passion for construction and re-launched the company as VanMar Constructors Inc.
In 2004, Jeff Marin, Vice President, became a partner. Mike Van Hemert, Development and Pre-Construction Manager, also became a partner in the first in 2011. VanMar has continued to operate like a family business with clear social values and strong ties to the communities we do business in.
In 2008, we opened our branch office in Cambridge, Ontario. Since 2002, VanMar has completed more than 60 projects and over 6,000 units in B.C. and Ontario. This includes nearly 2000 healthcare beds and extensive experience in social housing and seniors residences projects.
