Alair Homes Victoria

Victoria, BC is a vibrant community filled with culture, history and natural charm. The capital city of British Columbia, Canada is known as the “City of Gardens” because of its lush natural surroundings and vibrant gardens. The mild coastal climate, outdoor recreation, natural beauty, and economic opportunity make it a city of destination and desire to live. Victoria and surrounding communities have a rich architectural mixture of classic heritage buildings and newer neighborhoods, built to serve the growing population and host millions of tourists each year.

Applying Modern Architectural Engineering to Build Enhanced Lifestyles

Alair Homes Victoria, part of the National network of Alair partners, is owned and operated by Chris Bowness, a UVic graduate and licensed professional engineer with 15 years of experience in construction and architectural engineering. He combines modern building science technologies and practical step-path logic to deliver outstanding results on every project.

Residents and visitors are attracted to the historic appeal of downtown Victoria, James Bay, and Oak Bay neighborhoods. Many owners wish to maintain their property’s heritage character while enjoying the benefits of modern construction technologies, which can be achieved through a carefully engineered renovation by Alair. Innovative materials crafted in a classic appearance deliver charm, comfort, environmental protection and energy cost savings, while preserving the ambience of what some describe as a Victorian Old English appeal.

Growing communities in Greater Victoria like Colwood and Saanich have many residents in new living situations such as an expanding family, relocating for retirement, or attending college or university away from home. Alair Victoria’s team customizes homes to meet those specific needs, and enhance lifestyle with often simple and practical concepts applied to a construction design. As the population grows, as does the need for newly developed housing, where Alair’s custom home and multi-family project development teams are there to service private owners and investors alike.

Our ability to offer high-quality renovations and custom builds for less is due to our national network of Alair partners sharing volume discounts from materials suppliers, and the incredible local trade relationships we have developed through years in the home construction field. We pass our buying power on to the consumer, and this allows us to use the finest materials and workmanship on every project at market-competitive rates.

At Alair Victoria, we believe that no job is too big or too small for the highest level of attention and our assurance of unparalleled client satisfaction. Some of our successful projects have included full interior and exterior remodels, adding outdoor living spaces, completing spa-like bathroom renovations and creating designer kitchens worthy of the finest chefs.

If you are considering a custom home, renovation to create a better space for your family, or an investment project, give us a call to learn more about our award winning design and construction processes today.
