From concept and design to development + construction

A full service company – from concept and design to development + construction

About Us

Where It All Began & Where We Are Now

2004

Martini Construction was founded by Dennis Martini who was determined to break out of the ‘normal’ and into ‘extraordinary’. Unlike most construction firms who start off small, Dennis risked it all and purchased 2 sites to construct industrial strata.

2006-2007

During the economic downturn in 2007, most companies were forced to downsize but Martini Construction pushed forward.

Dennis saw this as an opportunity to expand into the tenant and office improvements industry and established long-term partnerships with clients and suppliers.

2021

Now, Martini Construction is a turnkey service company that manages everything from concept design to development.

Our specialty is taking vacant plots of shell buildings and shell offices and evolving them into fully serviced and complete places of employment.

We have established strategic partnerships since 2004 to ensure we offer only the best services and price. Today, we are designing, developing, and constructing projects throughout the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley.

Our design center provides our team with all the updated tools they need to design and demonstrate the newest trends to our clients.
