How do we do it?


We buy well

Brecan is able to offer extremely competitive rates due to its effective use of procurement, estimating and design systems; our excellent terms with a range of product manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers; and finally our contracts with a range of third party value-added service providers.


Our materials selection rivals any large lumber store, and we can offer most leading brands and a range of specification levels. There are other package suppliers who are based more remotely, whereas we offer a localised production and staging solution which means the materials can be delivered in stages that best suit the site, client and builder's needs.


We manage risks

We use a systematic approach to maximize productivity and minimize errors; our estimating, procurement, accounting and design systems are all interlinked seamlessly to ensure we waste no time in repeating tasks or duplicating inputs.


We don't need to pad out our estimates for lack of detail, we undertake detailed take-offs which mean we are confident of our end costs. Less detail equals more risk meaning more risk premium which equates to a higher cost to the client.

We minimize overheads

Our aim of providing custom home packages at a fixed-price for a cost equal to per-stick prices paid at a lumber yard means that we keep our overheads to a minimum. So long as our materials arrive on site on time and at a consistently high quality we have fulfilled our promise. We have therefore numerous contracts in place with third-party providers to ensure we can provide those services throughout the Kootenays.


We focus upon excellent in-house and third-party services

What we do offer are the value-add services that greatly affect the success of the build; we provide design, engineering and drafting support services to ensure a smooth path from initial ideas to construction.


Brecan's network of professional service associates and its own in-house estimating, design and drafting skills means that we can provide localised knowledge to every design, and can ensure the best chance that a client's needs are met at the right budget. We have intimate knowledge of build costs and can ensure that a design will be buildable and finished without blowing the budget.
