Owner / Licensed Carpenter

Meet Kristian, owner of Paradise Construction.

After graduating from Holy Cross Secondary School, Kristian spent several years working for a local custom home builder. He started out as a labourer and through hard work and dedication earned his apprenticeship opportunity. After spending years perfecting his craft and completing the 7,200 on-the-job hours and schooling required to write and pass his Carpentry Certificate of Qualification [C of Q] exam, Kristian became a licensed Red Seal Carpenter.

While completing his apprenticeship, in addition to working full-time on the job site, Kristian devoted his evenings and weekends to gain experience and skill in every facet of building and construction.

His honesty, reliability, and commitment to quality resulted in an ever-increasing demand for his work.

Kristian officially founded Paradise Construction in 2012 and hasn’t looked back.

Over the past decade, he has carefully assembled the strongest team and partners in the industry.

“Building and creating have always been a part of me. It’s in my DNA.”
