Since its inception in the 1970s, the Lark Group has built a solid understanding of the British Columbia development market. Our teams work hard to understand all aspects of the project, using our knowledge to determine how the project can be best financed, what its optimal design will be, and how to ensure the best price over the lifetime of the contract while also considering safety and comfort. In short, we are experts.
Developers of new properties face challenges today that must be resolved before the project can commence, including land scarcity, rising costs and skilled labour shortages. The Lark team uses our expertise in cost control, value engineering, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the use of VICO with life cycle costing in order to consistently deliver industry-leading projects.
Recognized with numerous awards for our work on PPPs, we provide clients and concessionaires with a design-build partner they can trust. We are your source for design and construction, bringing value-added innovations, efficient life-cycle solutions and cost certainty, while consistently completing and opening projects on or ahead of schedule.
Due to the international popularity of public-private partnerships (PPPs), and the need for infrastructure development PPPs are have fast become the most common and effective contract model for institutional development and construction. PPPs provide multiple benefits to the public sector, including reduced construction costs, reduced operations and maintenance costs, a wide array of financing tools and the ability to transfer this long-term life-cycle performance risk, including operations and maintenance, to the private sector.
Lark is also is not a market leader not just in PPP projects, but also in design-build and other innovative delivery methods. With a construction volume of more than $100 million annually, Lark is one of the leading providers of institutional construction in BC. Lark develops innovative solutions to construct infrastructure, including office towers, ice arenas, hospitals, and water/wastewater treatment plants.
