Message from Dean:

I strive to provide the absolute highest quality housing through awareness and technical understanding of Building Envelope Science and Advanced Construction Techniques and then I blend this knowledge with Timeless Heritage Designs to create what my clients and critics call truly amazing living spaces,

I strongly believe that my Developments must improve the overall beauty of the neighbourhoods they are located in and therefore be of a Human Scale and Design that feels natural and attractive to that specific location. This is especially true when working in the Village Core,

I strive for the highest standard of Ethical Conduct and Customer Service,

MOST IMPORTANTLY: I and my team Love what we do and it shows.

Dean Dreger, Owner

First to arrive and the last to leave, Dean works side by side in the field with all his sub trades during the construction phase.

“I am not a behind the desk type of guy once ground is broken. For me it is important to be on site to answer questions and participate in the actual construction. This assures me that every step of the process from forming up the footings to final paint meet my exacting standards. I have a reputation for demanding the very best from our highly trained people and they in turn appreciate an environment where their advanced technical skills are recognized.

Dean Elms, Quality Control Assessor @ Pacific Home Warranty

I am writing in regards to how impressed PHW is and myself. Dean (Dreger) you clearly go the extra mile with the builds you produce. I always enjoy our conversations regarding your projects. It is amazing to see and learn about the leading edge products and systems you install in each build. In combination with your eye for detail, and genuine concern to deliver the absolute best product!

Dean (Dreger) you have done more than impressed me! I look forward to working with you in the future and am excited to see what you will do next with your future products.

In closing I would like to thank you for being available when I do site visits. It is a pleasure to learn from you and simply to connect.

Michelle Stilwell, MLA, Parksville-Qualicum

I was delighted to learn that Sage Manor had received an award of merit in the category of Multi-Family Apartment from the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board, at the Commercial Building Awards held in Nanaimo.

To be the recipient of this award shows how the design and construction of this building represents outstanding workmanship. The building has addressed the community need for more housing in the downtown core, while utlizing the new bylaw the town of Qualicum recently passed allowing residential units on the ground floor of a housing development.

Your creativity and vision is shown throughout the many buildings you both have collaborated on. I commend you and your achievements and wish you all the best for future ambitions.

May your enthusiasm and dedication continue to shine through the success of your lifetime.
