Our Story – In 1973, Wakefield Contracting began with a clear vision. With a focus on quality craftsmanship and exceptional customer service, we set out to restore Victoria’s treasured heritage buildings and revitalize the city’s downtown core. With hard work and sweat equity, Wakefield spent the next decade applying their expertise to transforming the city’s oldest and best known landmarks – Market Square, Munro’s Books, Congregation Emmanu-El Synagogue, the Herald Building, Craigflower Schoolhouse and many others. The creative and innovative work on the Synagogue garnered local, national and international heritage awards.
In 1982, Glenn Wakefield took the helm from his father Roy, and applied his skill in carpentry and building project management to commercial and residential renovations, new home construction and large scale building maintenance projects. “We approach every project – from building a custom dream home to creating a one-room facelift – with experience and a keen sensitivity to our clients’ needs. For more than thirty-five years, we’ve been proud to work alongside many of Victoria’s finest architects, engineers, designers and trades people. Together, we turn our client’s vision into a reality.”

“Glenn takes a holistic approach which is very different than hiring just a contractor. It was important to have someone working with us that we could trust, someone who had experience, who was creative, honest, and someone who would take accountability for the actions that were required.”
