Building community

We firmly believe that everyone has the fundamental right to a roof over their heads and that Project Development is about building strong relationships between the community, stakeholders, and the project team. Most of all we believe in delivering housing that works for the residents, the community, and the housing managers.

We keep our promises

We pride ourselves on not just setting expectations, but exceeding them. With over 15 years’ experience managing development projects for municipal, not-for-profit, and community clients, Vesta Development Consultants is confident that we have seen it all and know the resources you need to get your project completed on time.

Too often, people make promises they can’t keep, that is why Vesta has worked hard to develop a reputation for delivering where others haven’t been able to. Through effective communication and realistic project management, we set project plans, goals, and deadlines that make sense. But we don’t stop there. We take full ownership when it comes to keeping those plans on track, working with stakeholders on all sides of the project, and getting in the trenches if we need to, so you can be confident that your project will be a success.

Importantly, we understand that any development project requires active engagement with a variety of stakeholders. That’s why we take an active role in community consultation, stakeholder communication, and vendor management. We’re also familiar with the unique requirements of each municipality and government agency, having forged strong cooperative ties with BC Housing that make it easier for us to navigate their requirements and processes.

With our approach, the Vesta team is confident that any development project we support will always meet or exceed your goals. Because if we make a promise, we intend to keep it.
