Marcon, Presenting Partner

Many people (and a few pets) will spend their lives in a Marcon home, so we have to build it right, every time. For more than 36 years, Marcon has been developing a wide variety of communities across Metro Vancouver. We are an established, trusted name in construction. Low-rises, high-rises, retail centres, industrial parks – we have built them all. We understand what it takes to build spaces for everyday life. We believe that buildings shape neighbourhoods and change lives in infinite ways, and that’s why we pay attention to every detail, no matter how small. At Marcon, we’re committed to building for the long run. We’re building for life. Learn more at marcon.ca.
