Starting in 1983 as a part-time business, Marpet Construction is a partnership between Martin Buehler and Peter Wade. Since 2002, they have been engaged full-time in Marpet Construction. Over the years, and many finished projects and happy customers later, the two are working on increasingly interesting and varied projects, making homeowners happy from Surrey to Chilliwack.
Marpet Construction is a full service general contracting company focused on complete renovations to custom homes, from fencing to sundecks, finishing kitchens and baths. The philosophy has always been to do a job right. There are no short cuts when it comes to renovating your home. When we work on your home, we treat it as if were our own.
The team of Martin and Peter form an experienced, detail oriented duo that lead Marpet Construction.
Martin started his apprenticeship with PCL Construction in 1983, and subsequently received his Red Seal in 1987 from The British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT). He won the Provincial Apprenticeship contest in May 1987 and placed second in the National contest in November of that same year. As he continued working for PCL Construction, he moved on to supervisor and general foreman on multiple projects across the Lower Mainland running crews up to 30 men from 1992 – 2002.
Peter started his apprenticeship in England in 1973 continuing through to 1978. Peter completed his training to acquire City of Guilds of London. He emigrated to Canada in 1980 where he has worked in construction since the beginning. He worked for two years in a machine shop where he built cabinets, windows, doors, and stairs. Then Peter worked for two years as an onsite installer. Peter has worked in the construction industry for over 38 years in all aspects of commercial and residential construction.
