Est. 1987


Since its inception in 1987 Darwin has completed in excess of $1.0 billion dollars worth of construction projects in Western Canada and the United States. Darwin’s extensive project portfolio includes major Office and Industrial Developments, Shopping Centres, Community Centres, Hi-rise/Lo-rise Residential communities, Seniors Housing, Care Facilities, Social Housing, Heritage Restoration, and large scale Education Facilities. At Darwin a new project represents an opportunity to work with industry leading designers, engineers and tradesmen to enhance the communities we all live in through effective green building practices and innovative design concepts.

"We have had good experience in working with the people at Darwin. We find Darwin's team (from their senior management to their site personnel) knowledgeable, professional and dependable. Darwin in its capacity as a general contractor or construction manager can be counted on to help it s clients deliver quality projects, control costs better and reduce management time."

In 2001, Darwin established a development company based upon the same guiding principles that have been the core of the company’s success in the construction business. Today Darwin is one of the most active developers on the North Shore with development projects in all three municipalities (District of West Vancouver, City of North Vancouver and District of North Vancouver). Our development portfolio includes 850,000 square feet of industrial and 1.2 million square feet of residential projects in the planning, or construction phase of development.

"We would like to thank you for Darwin's commitment to our Watermark Project in Osoyoos. Only 4 months from completion, our project would not have got built for the expertise and follow through of the Darwin team. Developing a $75 million dollar project in a small market like Osoyoos was challenging...Your team has been diligent throughout the process and we look forward to Watermark's successful completion in the summer of this year. Again, thanks to your team."

Green Building

Buildings generate up to 35 per cent of all greenhouse gases, 35 per cent of landfill waste comes from construction and demolition activities, and 80 per cent of all water is consumed in and around buildings. It’s clear that making buildings greener can have a significant impact on larger environmental goals. At Darwin, we take our commitment to the environment, future generations and improving the way we live very seriously. We have adopted a corporate policy that 100% of the projects we construct must meet LEED or BUILT GREEN standards.
