September 30, 2006

White Rock, B.C. – Peninsula Construction Ltd. was thrilled to recently participate in the upgrading of the Peninsula Child Care Centre facilities in South Surrey as part of an “Extreme Makeover 2006” project.

“As a result of Peninsula’s tremendous dedication and hard work, the Peninsula Child Care Centres are now wheelchair accessible, therefore addressing the needs of disabled children,” says Paul Wheeler, executive director of the Semiahmoo House Society, which operates Peninsula Child Care Centres, a charitable, non-profit organization that runs license child care programs in South Surrey. “For this we are truly grateful.”

According to company president Lance Ponych, Peninsula lent its expertise to install kitchen and bathroom cabinets and countertops. “At Peninsula, we feel it is very important to give back to the communities in which we work and live,” says Ponych. “We were very happy to be able to provide our services to the Peninsula Child Care Centre and hope that our contribution helps to make a difference in the lives of many children.”

Peninsula Construction nominated for SAM Award

December 5, 2007

South Surrey, B.C. - Peninsula Construction Ltd. is pleased to announce that it has been named a finalist for the Canadian Homebuilders Association 2007 SAM Awards.

The recognition is in the Whole House Renovation category and acknowledges Peninsula’s renovation of a single family home on 156th Street in Surrey. According to Peninsula Construction founder and president Lance Ponych, the reno was undertaken in two phases. The first phase involved building a new, attached garage with a master bedroom and ensuite on the second floor. The existing garage was then converted into a home theatre and dance studio, with nanny quarters, laundry room, home gym and study area built above.

For the second phase, the client moved into the completed first phase and then the existing house was renovated, with the exception of the living and dining rooms. This phase included new bedrooms, bathrooms, a kitchen, plus an extension of the den and a new entryway. “This was a very lengthy, challenging project but thanks to the experienced tradespeople that I brought on and our expert inhouse team at Peninsula, it went very well and was on time and on budget,” says Ponych.

While he is grateful for the SAM nomination, Ponych says he is most thrilled that his clients were pleased with the end result. “We are so happy with the transformation that occurred to our home,” wrote owners Dete and Joh-anna Mordhorst in a recent letter to Peninsula. “We would never hesitate to use Peninsula Construction again. We were impressed with their competence and professionalism. We highly recommend them and thank them for a wonderful job.”
