The locally-owned Knappett Group of companies has been in business since 1983. Over the years, we’ve completed hundreds of projects throughout British Columbia and have established a tradition of excellence in construction. Our teams of certified tradespeople and construction professionals have completed some of the largest and most complex builds on Vancouver Island, and this expertise is brought to each and every project. For us, success is a completed build that exceeds obligations and is delivered on time and on budget.
