Our reputation to seek excellence and to find creative ways to solve problems is reflected through the many strong relationships that we have established with our Owners, Operators, Consultants, Supplies and Trades.
Kasper has completed and delivered on two projects with our company and is currently in the process of a third project. The projects have been in the residential care sector and involved the construction of a $20 million facility over two phases with 82 beds constructed in phase one and subsequent addition of 30 beds in phase two (approximately 8 months later). The current project is a $4.0 million renovation to an existing care facility that will continue to operate during this process which will require additional diligence to properly manage.
In each case, the projects have required general contractor services including estimating, tender issuance & selection, contract issuance, project management, payment processing and on-going reporting. In addition, the expectations for the project have been on-time and on-budget with close monitoring of safety and environmental practices. In short, Kasper has consistently met and/or exceeded our expectations. Kasper has an extensive network of connections that are easily accesses for trade selection and his company team is very skilled and service focused. In addition, Kasper personally monitors the projects and ensures regular reporting of progress and issues to the owners.
We would highly recommend Kasper and plan to continue to engage him for any future opportunities with our company.Mary McDougall Buron Healthcare Ltd.
Kasper Development was excellent at handling the on-going requests of the three foundations as well as last minute changes due to donor purchases and initiatives.
I found Doug Kasper and his team to be professional, timely and responsive. The Hospice project was under very tight timelines as well as budget. I am happy to say Doug and his crew brought the project in on time and under budget. It was important to Interior Health the project used local labour wherever possible and Kasper ensured the majority of the trades where local.
I can honestly say I felt the entire staff of Kasper Development took this project to heart and worked well with all the local authorities, design consultants, Interior Health users groups and the foundations. Doug’s leadership and management style well suited this project as there were many challenges and Kasper ensured all the concerns where addressed in a fair and non-confrontational manner.Carrie Voyer, Planner / Project Manager Interior Health
Doug had an excellent support staff and provided professional, thoughtful guidance throughout the building process. I wish to express the fact that Doug Kasper was an incredible person to have on our team. He is honest, forthright and very easy to communicate with. His paramount responsibility was to the owner and he demonstrated an authentic commitment to ensure that the owner’s interest was his prime concern, whether it be a budget item of the quality of the building. He constantly reviewed many issues and, through his experience, found solutions that were financial and operational beneficial to the Society. I have been involved with many seniors housing projects and when I have the opportunity to consider another construction possibility, Doug Kasper will be my first phone call.Terry Alleyn, Owner’s Representative STA Management Ltd.
We have worked with Doug Kasper for over 10 years on some of our Long Term Care facility projects, and have found Doug to be a great communicator and listener. He has a hands on approach to solving problems, he knows the issues, and comes up with cost saving ideas. His ideas during the planning stage are critical to making the project a success. He is professional in how he works and communicates with everyone on the team, from the Architects to the trades on site. I would highly recommend Doug and his team to join your next project.Rob Quiring, P.Eng, Struct. Eng. President IQ Engineering Ltd.
Ames Metal Fabricators (AMF) has successfully completed many projects with KDC and with Mr. Kasper in the past. AMF has always enjoyed working with KDC on their projects due to the high level of professionalism and care that KDS puts into their projects.
On many projects we have to put up with inadequate flow of information needed on a timely basis for the uninterrupted pace of work required to meet schedule, this has never been a problem for us on a KDC project.Albert Benning Ames Metal Fabricators

Kasper Development Corp. are knowledgeable construction managers and highly efficient in their organization and time management throughout the construction project. I have full confidence they will delivery the project as planned on time and within budget.
InSite was recently part of a team developing seniors housing in Coquitlam, BC and worked very closely with Kasper Development Corp throughout the planning and construction phases. The project owner was a not for profit group with very limited experience in development and were therefore dependent on Doug Kasper for guidance. With the highest degree of respect and integrity Doug supported the society through to project completion; providing advice, recommendations and guidance.
Doug and his staff are team players and seek out opportunities to collaborate with members of the team, and the client, to ensure the finished product meets their needs, expectations and requirements.
Doug Kasper is well known and respected in our industry as trustworthy, knowledgeable and well connected within the construction industry. Doug deals effectively with civic officials to procure land, permits and zoning in a timely manner. Doug is respectful and can "think outside the box" to develop solutions to challenging problems that will inevitably arise on any project.Carole Holmes, Partner & Chair of the Board InSite Housing/Hospitality/Health
