Peak Ventures

About Us

Why We Love Creating

The origin of Peak Ventures Fine Custom Homes rests with what started as an idea to Design and Build High Quality Custom Homes for resale in Whistler.

That was in 1996. 22 years later, we’re still Designing and Building to the Highest Quality Standards in the Sea to Sky Corridor, West Vancouver, Gulf Islands, and the Sunshine Coast. And our client list reflects many years of loyal, satisfied repeat clients that have come to expect nothing less than the best. Whether a Fine Custom Home, or Remodel in our Residential portfolio, an Olympic Celebration Plaza or 5 Diamond Hotel in our Commercial portfolio, our clients place a high priority on Quality and Value and Peak Ventures delivers with unparalleled service and Value in every project we take on.  

David Girard, as president of Peak Ventures, oversees all aspects of company operations. With a strong background of knowledge and experience in new construction, renovation, mechanical systems, maintenance management and professional property inspection, David lends Peak Ventures a broad technical foundation to anchor our business.
