16 Reviews
Katarina and Axel Schreyer of Schreyer Construction have over 20 years experience in general contracting, custom building and project management for major renovations and new custom homes. When the opportunity arises, they have the ability to consult in architectural and interior design due to their extensive experience in the field. They specialize in creating healthy living environments in terms of green materials, energy efficiency and healthy indoor air.

Axel began his career in the construction industry in 1980 in Munich, Germany as an apprentice in timber framing. After graduating in 1983, he immigrated to Canada to work in construction and also learn North American framing. From 1983 to 1989, he worked in the greater Vancouver area as a carpenter in construction trade while simultaneously furthering his education in the field. He then oversaw numerous projects while working as a Supervisor for the Blackcomb Building Department from 1989 to 1995.

Axel founded Schreyer Construction in 1995 and has since completed many successful projects. He is also a proud member of numerous organizations, including the Canadian Home Builders Association, where he served as Director and President of the local chapter. He continues to stay abreast of the latest developments and advancements in the industry, specifically related to healthy building and energy efficiency.

Katarina was educated at the Economic University, Faculty of Trade in Slovakia, where she received her "Engineer of Trades" degree. Her master thesis "Design of Commercial Interiors" in 1991 was her first step into the world of interior design. Since 1993, she has been associated with Schreyer Construction as CFO and Residential Project Consultant. She has since received her degree in Interior Design from the Interior Design Institute in Vancouver.

In the last few years, Schreyer Construction has garnered a number of awards, and their work has been featured in Luxury Home Canada Magazine, Whistler Magazine, Westcoast Homes, Design Magazine and BC Homes Magazine.

The company has also been involved in a number of conservation projects- most recently, the restoration of a boat house. Images of this restoration can be found in the "Piece of Whistler History" project album on our houzz profile, and our video can be seen here:
