We’re passionate about collaborative construction
More than windows and walls, your project is to be an environment that enhances the lives of people, whether it's where they work, learn, live or play. You need a construction manager that shares your vision and enthusiasm for bringing it to life. Unitech is passionate about collaborative construction and we incorporate it into every facet of every project each and every day.

Our core values are entrenched into our entire team and form the key pre-requisite for everyone we hire. Client goal driven; Innovative; Collaborative; Concise; Firm, Fair & Fun. These values form the foundation and DNA of Unitech and its people.
A construction manager that sees things from your side
The foundation of Unitech Construction Management has always been to approach each project from the client's perspective. After fifteen years in Project Management and ten years with Construction Management, President Rick Boates decided to build a different kind of construction services company – one that would actively engage property owners as part of the team.
In 1988, when Unitech was formed, Boates created a unique process that makes the complex business of construction management straightforward, transparent and cost-efficient right from the start. Unitech clients appreciate the fact that they are heard, understood and informed every step of the way. Moreover, they know that their budget is allocated as carefully as if it were our own money.
Construction projects that are a source of pride for all
We're proud to have been involved in the realization of buildings that are built to be beautiful and smart, and to enhance their communities by enriching people's lives. Our diverse list of construction projects includes buildings for education, public health and safety, business, recreation, and local culture.
Just eleven years after starting the company, we reached a significant milestone. We took on our 100th project in 1999 and larger, more complex projects followed. Unitech was construction manager for $30 million in renovations to the Vancouver Convention Centre in preparation for the 2010 Olympic Games. Shortly after, we carried on with the VANOC Games Time build-outs to convert the facility into the International Press Centre. Continuing with the sports theme, Unitech was engaged by BC Pavilion Corporation to be construction manager for the temporary Stadium at Empire Field, home of the BC Lions for 2010 – 11. Today, Unitech continues to bring its "Proven Process" and many years of expertise forward to every sector of the construction world. From Education to Recreation to Municipal to Commercial to Residential to Healthcare, Unitech is the industry leader in construction management and we continue to strive to be better. Our unmatched leadership in Seismic renovations and upgrades continues to support local school districts make every school safer for the students of British Columbia.
With our dynamic team of over 100 employees Unitech has become one of the most innovative construction companies in Western Canada. We are committed to our clients and our people. It has been the foundation on which we have been built and will continue to be our number one priority as we move through our next 30 years.
Safety is a top priority
We strive to be a leader when it comes to safety. Our goal is to ensure that we not only protect our own people, but also those who live and work in our buildings – during and after construction. Thanks to rigid protocols and innovative scheduling, safety is maintained and disruption is minimized while our work is in progress. We currently enjoy the maximum 'merit' WCB rating and are members of the Construction Safety Network's COR program (99% on recent external COR audit).
If you're looking for a construction manager that listens and puts your goals and priorities first and foremost, we can help. Let our highly experienced and dedicated staff implement our Proven Process to help simplify your life and make your project a huge success.
