Damian holds a Red Seal Certification in Carpentry. The Red Seal Program is recognized as the interprovincial standard of excellence in the skilled trades.
Damian was awarded by the Department of Trades and Technology at Camosun College in 2009 after finishing a 4 year program in only 3 years. With DCR Renovations, Damian has also obtained the Residential Builder License Certification and the Pacific Home Warranty Insurance in the past.
During the first 3 years in commercial, Damian participated in many projects like underground parking and the Shutter. These projects have given him and the company the opportunity to achieve a high level of knowledge in the construction and assembling of concrete forms. The planning and execution of high complexity projects like the butterfly curved roof at the Shutter project is a good example of these achievements. Damian also has experience in finishing and repairing of concrete.

Damian has grown the company’s profile more extensive in the renovations field with numerous projects. The outstanding results in a tight budget and the accuracy in the estimations has given the advantage of creating clientele through referrals. Remodeling of bathrooms with the complexity of any modern home DCR Renovations has made the difference among the rest. The accuracy in their estimation and delivering what is promised is the fundamental core of the company, making it a preference of choice.
