A number of Net Zero and Passive House building techniques are available for consideration with your new build or renovation.
Currently Naikoon is renovating the space at the bottom of Lonsdale Avenue beside the Polygon Gallery and the Lonsdale Quay, to get it ready for ongoing development. You can see their branding all over the fences down there and things look to be coming along quickly. It’s great to see such an awesome local employer front and centre redoing parts of the Shipyards District.

In this interview we had the distinct pleasure to speak with Joe Geluch of Naikoon Contracting to get to know him and the business better for our readers. Check it out below and contact them for a quotation. He started in the construction industry at a very young age following his father around their family shop in Haida Gwaii. A true local.
|How did you get started with Naikoon Contracting and what do you like about operating in North Vancouver?|
|Naikoon was relaunched in North Vancouver in 2009 with a focus on constructing custom homes, commercial buildings and renovations which were more conscious of the environment while also using innovative methods of construction. Operating in North Vancouver has such a small town feel and such a great sense of community which reminds me in some odd ways of my birthplace town of Masset, Haida Gwaii. North Vancouver, especially Lower Lonsdale, is like a little town in a big City. A great place to do business and enjoy life.|
|What are the products, services and brands that you offer to customers?|
|Naikoon is a Construction Management firm and we specialize in planning and executing innovative projects throughout British Columbia. We are experienced leaders in delivering Custom homes, Commercial buildings and Renovation projects which target high levels of energy performance like Passive House and Net Zero, as well as projects which are constructed out of wood and use components which are pre-fabricated and/or constructed off-site. This minimizes waste and also limits the impact to the surrounding neighbourhood during construction.|

|Before operating your local business what were you doing for work or a career?|
|I have been in the construction business for my entire adult life, as well as throughout my teenage years in the summers. This is all I know. I started as a Carpenter and earned a Red Seal Certification and have been running different construction businesses for 17 years now. This is year 11 for Naikoon and we’ve grown every day and I still wake up excited to go to work!|
|Outside of operating your business what do you get up to for activities in your personal time?|
|Spending time with my family, golfing , gardening and sitting around in my back yard. North Vancouver has so many things to do and see we are blessed to call this place home.|
|Lastly, is there anything else you might want our readers to know about you or your business?|
|Naikoon has been built on great people. I just want to thank our amazing staff, colleagues and clients for being Naikoon champions and allowing us to create value in our community, while having fun doing it!|
