our story

They say that if you do what you love, you never work a day in your life. And to be honest, we couldn’t agree more. Our story started out small with personal projects around the house, and then quickly evolved as we realized the enjoyment and fulfilment of it all. We became enthralled with the process of building or renovating homes that can withstand the test of time.

Attention to the finest details is our speciality and has been a driving factor behind our legacy. From building on top of mountains, reviving a luxury British Properties home, renovating homes from every decade and making dreams into a reality, we’ve pushed the limits and overcome numerous obstacles.

After 20 years of happy clients, proven excellence and accolades, Upward has grown to be regarded as one of Vancouver’s finest custom home builders and home renovation contractors. We are proud to be Vancouver’s highest quality builder and have made it our mission to share our passion and realize the full potential of your space.

Your Home is our Home

Whether it’s navigating the steep inclines and bedrock of West Vancouver, the mountain terrain and underground water sources of North Vancouver, or the wet climate of the West Coast, we’ve learned all the ins and outs of these areas and understand what it takes for an efficient and successful build. This knowledge helps us to foresee any problems, have a thorough understanding going into a project of the permitting and zoning requirements, create the most risk-averse plan, and maximize your usable space. This is our home too, and we treat every project as if it were our own and every client as if they were family.
