Jacob Bros Construction, celebrating its 10th anniversary, has opened a new 50,000 square foot office and maintenance facility in South Surrey.
The new state-of-the-art headquarters for the heavy civil and commercial building construction company sits on a five-acre site and consolidates a number of the company’s operations within the Lower Mainland. It features offices, a warehouse and service area, a wash bay, two permanent storage buildings, a fuel station, an on-site service area and a welding fabrication shop. The new office offers its employees a modern space with multiple boardrooms, a large, on-site gym, sit-stand desks, environmentally friendly water chiller stations, natural light in all work areas and electric vehicle charging stations.
The family run business formed in 2008 by three brothers (Todd, Scott and Jason) has completed a wide range of heavy civil, municipal and commercial construction projects across B.C. The company received the Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Construction in 2016 and was recently recognized as one of 2018’s BC’s Top Employers.
An early project that was key to growing the company was the rebuild of Granville Street, arguably the company’s most challenging project to date. It involved the complete reconstruction of 10 city blocks right through Vancouver’s downtown core on a tight schedule. The company has also completed many projects for YVR, worked on parts of the Evergreen Line and was a subcontractor on the South Fraser Perimeter Road.
In addition to the new headquarters, Jacob Bros operates a satellite office in Langford, just outside Victoria.
