Retail Space

Does your existing retail space need a facelift? Is your business acquiring a new location? At Highlands Master Builders, we understand that a retail brand is not only defined by the quality of their products and services, but equally by the look and feel of their stores. Our team is dedicated to delivering the highest level of craftsmanship in the most cost-effective manner.

From materials selection that highlights low-cost highly-durable alternatives to conventional materials, to fully costed and developed project schedules enabling you to plan for product delivery and your grand opening, we will work with you, hand-in-hand, to ensure the complete success of your new location.  On a deadline? Our team can even provide staff to work double shifts, evenings, or weekends to ensure your deadline doesn’t keep you up at night!

Food Service

If you are looking to serve food or alcoholic beverages, your business has special needs and demands that can’t be left to just any contractor.  Our team has extensive experience working with food service providers in restaurant, bar, fast-food, food court, and other unique areas. We are familiar with the extensive requirements of FoodSafe BC as well as Vancouver-Coastal and Fraser Health authorities.

We do it all from the front of house to the back of the house. You can count on Highlands Master Builders to handle the plumbing, refrigeration, ventilation and electrical as well as the interior and exterior design and construction. We will create the perfect experience for your staff and a lively and unique place your customers will be eager to return to.

Recreational Services

A fitness centre can have varying levels of requirements depending on the sector of entertainment. Highlands Master Builders’ flexible design can accommodate any of the following: arenas, athletic complexes, baseball stadiums or batting cages, equestrian centers, gymnasiums, hockey or ice skating rinks, indoor swimming pools, multi-purpose athletic facilities, roller rinks, and theaters.  What about breakout areas for classes, such as yoga and dance? They need a special studio with low-impact flooring and plenty of mirrors, and perhaps soundproof walls. Wet areas such as a pool and spa have unique space planning and safety considerations. And don’t forget about storage and locker rooms.

Think about all the features that you want to offer your clients and members and the individual needs that go along with them. Renovating a gym isn’t like a typical business since each feature often has its own safety and aesthetic requirements. Even electrical service is a big deal, since everything from spinning equipment and treadmills to your sound system and video displays use it. Highlands Master Builders’ expertise in recreational facilities is sure to bring you satisfaction for your design needs, and long-term success to your business.

Office Spaces

Let Highlands Master Builders create a unique solution for your office needs. Whether you are renovating a single office or a multi-story building, we can meet your design needs and help maximize the potential of the space.  As a business owner, you want to create a space that is inviting and welcoming to employees, as well as visitors. There are limitless possibilities for the exterior of your building. Help increase the visibility of your business by choosing to add architectural elements, single skin or insulated metal panels, finishes and colors to brand and personalize your building. Add glass, stone and masonry in combination with your metal office building to complete the design.  With interior spaces, our team will carefully analyse who will be working where, and what conditions will lead to their best performance. Every material, finish, and fixture in an office space can improve or reduce employee performance and sense of job satisfaction. Let us show you how to get the most out of your team by giving them a great environment they will be proud to work in on a budget that makes your bottom line shine!


As a franchise owner brand continuity is extremely important.  Vancouver has a variety of franchises and the brand guidelines are different, change from time to time, sometimes even frequently, requiring you to constantly be making changes to your furniture, fixtures, and equipment.  Highlands Master Builders has worked with a variety of franchises from food service to sporting goods and martial arts. We can show you how to achieve even the most complicated branding and image changes on a minimal budget and with minimal interruption to your business.

Consulting Services

In addition to a full range of design and construction services, our team also provides consultative and advisory services.  Many small and medium sized companies throughout Vancouver have utilized these services to help them analyse which areas and which properties will be best suited for their specific needs.

Many of our clients refer to us as their building department, as we have established a long-term trusting and transparent relationship.  They know that we are dedicated to seeing their business thrive, even if that means less work for us in the short-term. Our expertise helps clients make the right choices for their particular needs and we also make suggestions that most business owners were not aware existed.

Our team will meet with you for a free consultation and in-depth study of the desires you have regarding any project. We are committed to your long-term success as a long-term trustworthy relationship is more valuable to us than any short-term gain.

We have done many renovations in the past, but Highlands crew was outstanding. It is rare to find a construction company that has so much knowledge and experience and has the leadership to see a project through from the beginning to the end. They were always onsite, early in the morning. They were pleasant, polite and always cleaned up at the end of the day. We were actually sad when they left, as they were like family friends staying at our house!

If you want a great crew, outstanding workmanship, transparent and easy to understand billing this is THE company! We would hire Andrew and the guys back for another project any time. Thank you again for going the extra mile – we are very grateful.
