Some Very Happy Clients

  • I interviewed several building contractors before selecting Somenos Construction to build my water view home. Somenos had been highly recommended by many people; however, what especially stood out for me during my initial conversation with D’Arcy Beaveridge was his pride in the excellence and integrity of his team.

    The Somenos Construction team is made up of exemplary professionals who have worked together for upward of 30 years. The team members are highly skilled, knowledgeable, hardworking, amiable, patient, flexible and creative. The main crew did the initial forming, framing, installation of trusses, interior carpentry, finishing carpentry and driveway forms. For sub-trades and suppliers, Somenos had a strong base of loyal and experienced professionals whose quality of work and attention to detail matched their own.

  • Trudy has gone above and beyond to prepare plans for our development variance permit for the renovation of our 1911 character home. She became our liaison with city planning, expertly navigated the system, and delivered detailed plans that received unanimous approval on schedule and on budget. She is professional, skilled, creative and lovely to work with. I highly recommend Trudy McAdam Design. Thanks for everything, Gail

  • For anyone wanting to have their dream home become a reality you will love working with Trudy. She took our rough sketches, scribbles, magazine clips and ideas and created a home design that exceeded our expectations.

  • Everything has exceeded our expectations; we are very happy with the design of our dream home. We are grateful to Trudy for the professional care and attention to detail she exhibited throughout the design and construction of the house.

  • We have been working with D’Arcy Beaveridge and his Somenos Construction team for the past year; we are now in the final stages of construction on our Maple Bay home.

    Somenos Construction has consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic and a dedication to success; the efforts of the entire team have produced high quality results. The project to date has been running very close to the initially projected schedule and budget, which are key indicators of a well-managed project. Our working relationship with D’Arcy and his team has been wonderful. I can’t say enough about the professionalism and the easy relaxed manner in which they approach the many decisions that they need us to make.

    For these reasons, we highly recommend Somenos Construction for any construction project.

  • Somenos construction and Trudy McAdam Design collaborated on the build of my mom’s beautiful home in Maple Bay, so it was a no brainer for us to consider their services in the build of our home on the lot right next to my mom’s place.

    We have now been in our wonderful home for about a year and I can tell you that not a day goes by where my wife and I do not thank the heavens above that our home was built by Somenos Construction and designed by Trudy McAdam. What a great experience it was! If we are ever fortunate enough to once again build a home, there is no question as to who we’ll turn to for the design and build. Simply put, D’Arcy, Trudy, and the whole Somenos team are great people who make awesome homes.

  • We are delighted to recommend Somenos Construction to anyone for their building project. In 2018, Somenos completed our beautiful little semi-retirement home in Cowichan Bay. Although our house is only 1300 sq. ft., Somenos treated our build with as much importance as any larger property. In fact, we were amazed at how quickly and efficiently our house came together. At every stage of the build we were aware of what was happening, and any errors were quickly tweaked or remediated.

  • I have engaged Somenos Construction for my building needs at my former business (Steel Pacific Recycling) and personally over the last 20 years. I have found D’Arcy to be professional and efficient. They recently totally renovated my home and built a new 2500 sq. ft. building on my property. I included them on the initial planning and design. There practical knowledge and experience in working with the designer and myself proved to be of great value, and was a critical part in keeping the project on time and on budge. I am truly very happy with the end result of there work. I found Bob to be easy to work with, and I was confident that he was aligned with my best interests.

    I would with confidence recommend Somenos Construction for all your building needs.

  • D’Arcy and job foreman Luke Baker, were always available to us as well as being “hands on” and practical, and the whole crew embraces the values of honesty and hard work.

    We are really proud of the final result of our stylish duplex and Somenos Construction made it happen for us.

    Mike and Deb Butler
  • We are absolutely delighted with the West Coast style house that Somenos built for us. Our build site was on undeveloped, ‘off the grid’ land which required Somenos to oversee the land development (tree felling, well drilling, septic field and land drainage) as well as deal with the environmental and government permits involved in a water front build.

    D’Arcy and his team, as well as the various Somenos sub-contractors & suppliers, were excellent to work with. Their craftsmanship, integrity and attention to detail exceeded our expectations.

  • We are very happy and satisfied, now living in our beautiful new home. From our first meeting with D’Arcy and the follow-up to confirm a contract to build, working with Somenos Construction has been a most positive experience.

    The initial building estimates matched very accurately with monthly invoices. The commitment of so many long-term employees says a lot about Somenos Constuction’s good relations with staff. The skilled and experienced staff were all very easy and comfortable to work with. They were very open with offering suggestions or adjustments to accommodate changes on the fly. Working with local sub-trades was equally positive.

    Bob, Greg and Luke’s rapport with local sub-trades led to smooth and seamless stages of the build. We appreciated the full service offered by this company from initial planning and obtaining permits through the building process and site development.

    With thanks,
