“There’s a better way to build your home.”
That’s the key message Dan Dueck shares with clients and members of his Stattonrock Construction team every day.
A ticketed carpenter who has experienced the home-building industry from the ground up, Dan launched Stattonrock Construction 10 years ago with an eye to doing business in a new way.
“I have a real ‘boots-on-the-ground’ approach, with experience in everything from excavation to finishing carpentry and millwork,” Dan says.
Today, the family-owned business offers full-service, start-to-finish home building.
“From the initial meeting, we put relationships first, getting to know our clients so we can design and build the best home for them.”
The building community agrees. With a gold award from the Canadian Home Builders Association of Fraser Valley under their belt, along with multiple nominations, they’re again vying for gold in three categories this year. “That’s really exciting for us,” Dan says.
- Design time: Offering a seamless home building experience begins at the design phase, and having a team that includes both design and construction professionals can save, time, money and stress. “We can look after the entire project, from start to finish, efficiently and effectively.”
- Embrace technology: Technology is key to offering clients the service Stattonrock wants to provide. “The software we’ve integrated over the last year has changed how we interact with our clients. We’re able to execute projects with a lot more precision and clients can track the progress as we go,” explains Randi Dueck.
- Sustainability focus: High-performance building is sustainable, healthy and efficient.
“It starts in the design phase and having a builder’s input then is huge,” Dan says. While a designer working alone may create a great design, without building expertise, that design may not translate to a particular property, or lifestyle, health or environmental goals. “There’s a huge value to clients to having these key people working together under one roof.”
- The right team: In today’s busy building climate, talented, committed team members are essential. “Building is a high turnover industry, but we don’t believe in that. We’re really focused on sustainable growth, so when we bring someone on, it’s for the long haul,” Randi says. Respecting their crew’s skills, knowledge and experience, paired with good communication and team-building activities ensure a positive morale that filters down to client.
- Giving back: Built upon a strong community foundation, giving back is essential to Stattonrock’s business model. They have partnered with Alderidge Construction on a 10-year commitment to raise at least $30,000 a year for a Guatemala community, with the goal of thriving self-sustainability. “That’s been pretty life-changing for us,” Dan says.
“To help change people’s lives – through Food for the Hungry in Central America or by designing and building healthy, environmentally sustainable homes right here in B.C., that’s a big part of who we are and what we do every day.”
