The closer your attached greenhouse gets, the better it looks. Or at least it feels that way.
Kevin Stanyer, Custom Fabrication Manager, talks about his role at BC Greenhouses.
When it comes to custom greenhouses, Kevin is an amazing resource for the team at BCG. The custom projects that are designed and manufactured from his department are unique, complex and quite frankly cool. But let’s go back to the beginning for a moment.

Sunshine on Your Face in the Greenhouse Garden
I close my eyes as I bask in the sun, heat on my face. I take off my jacket and then my hat. My neighbors, friends and family have gone away to Martinique, Belize and Spain but I am experiencing the best holiday. I am sitting in the sun at home – in my Greenhouse Garden.

Mike Brouwer, the owner of Clear Choice Glass Construction, is the exclusive representative for BC Greenhouse Builders in the Fraser Valley.
Recently, I had the opportunity to connect with Mike Brouwer, owner of Clear Choice Glass Construction, about his history with BC Greenhouse Builders. Mike is what we would call a "legacy employee." Legacy to us means someone who has been with the company for an extraordinary amount of time, adds value and improves the company over the years through their dedication and hard work.
As with any company, there are many people, vendors, and supporters that make up the fabric of your success. When I started at BC Greenhouse 10 years ago, they shared with me the story of Erik Davis and it was a pleasure to talk with Russ and Aarron Davis to get the full history of our Vancouver Island connection. It’s clear that Erik Davis was one of the remarkable people that changed the course of our company. Erik was a bricklayer by trade who lived on the Island and he was known for his love of gardening. The president of four garden clubs, Erik was familiar with BC Greenhouses and had met Don Vale who was an installer with BCG. Erik purchased his first greenhouse in 1981.
