About The Owner

Bruce Young

As a teenager, my father would often say “It takes a great team to build something you can be proud of”: I learned this young, and it still holds true today. I would go to Vancouver on Saturday mornings, during the summer months, and work with my dad. I was amazed by the buildings, structures, tradespeople, and equipment. I did not know at the time that my dad was teaching me skills I would need later in my career. I believe this is where my passion for building started. The joy of seeing something being created right before my eyes was so intriguing.

Years later I found myself working in my father’s cabinet shop; I then went on to become a Red Seal carpenter and found myself working my way up the ranks in the commercial and industrial building industry for the next 15 years.

I was looking for a change and came to work for Bercum Builders. It was here that I fell in love with the custom home industry, building these beautiful, unique, and wonderful structures. My career with Bercum began as a Site Supervisor and I quickly worked my way into the Construction Manager role. Several years later, I am proud to call myself “Owner”.

Throughout my career with Bercum, I have had the pleasure of working with our distinguished clients, and have developed many long lasting friendships as a result. It brings me so much joy to provide a place for someone to call home, where they love to live.
