After graduating with honours from BC’s Carpentry Apprenticeship Program, Ralph Belisle and his wife Hélène spent several years traveling and working around the globe. During their stay in Australia, Ralph witnessed what he called “a real push to dress up the old neighbourhood where we were staying.” As an apprentice Ralph recalls, “I learned efficient, modular building practices. Suddenly I was in a situation where I had to adapt and apply those principles to the quirky, unpredictable buildings that were very old, and in some cases falling apart.” From that point on, Ralph was smitten with a passion for renovation.
In 1985, once the Belisles arrived back home in Vancouver, Ralph placed an advertisement in a local newspaper for “top quality” carpentry and TQ was born. Ralph then proceeded to turn a lull in the carpentry industry at the time into a booming business, offering a wide variety of services from fixing broken stairs to adding on small extensions to Westside homes. Headquartered in Burnaby, TQ Construction now has over 30 years industry experience to offer, catering to clients in the downtown core, North Vancouver, Burnaby and New Westminster.
Ralph and Hélène’s persistence and determination to succeed kept the business growing throughout years of hardship and industry slumps. In 1989, Ralph took on his first extensive renovation job in West Vancouver’s British Properties and made a decision to turn his company into a strategic design and build contracting firm; complete with in-house engineers, designers and highly-skilled carpenters. With a winning team all under the same roof, the company grew from a spontaneous venture into what it is today – one of the most successful, forward-thinking, award winning renovation companies in the Greater Vancouver area.
To be the one company that Greater Vancouver homeowners confidently choose for personalized, professional design and construction. Top Quality – the first time, every time.
