Building the future.
Mike Griffin, the president of Griffin Properties, has over 45 years experience in the construction industry.
Mike began his career in 1966. He was offered a shipwright apprenticeship in the late 1960’s and continued working in the shipbuilding industry for six years. This gave him invaluable experience in joinery, cabinetry, lofting and large scale layouts.
He returned to house building in 1975, concentrating on residential construction with an emphasis on framing, finishing and cabinet making. Between 1975 and 1977 Mike built two of his own homes. The second was a timber frame house on the waterfront in the Saanich Inlet area.
Our millwork shop is now run by a partner company, Sidney Architectural Millwork and Timber Company. It is managed by Petar Srejic, a 24 year veteran in residential and commercial millwork. He has a thorough understanding of cabinet making and joinery and is proficient in estimating and scheduling . There are fully certified journeymen, joinery carpenters and apprentices working in the millwork shop. Many have been long term employees with Griffin Properties and we can attest to their expertise.
We believe that one of the effective measures of a company is in the stability of its staff. Many of our employees and sub trades have worked with us for over twenty years. This dedicated team of professionals allows us to give you exceptional customer service, attention to detail and careful quality control producing a finished product that you can be proud of.
Our custom homes have ranged from 600 square foot renovations to 13,000 square foot new construction in many different structural styles. Many of these homes are on the waterfront around Victoria.
