THE 'CORE' TEAM
OWNER / OPERATOR / JOURNEYMAN CARPENTER
Shawn came to the Okanagan with his family at a young age and Oyama quickly became his forever home. His father, an engineer & project manager for various global Ports & Bridges started a small construction company 40 years ago, which Shawn later took-over and renamed 'Jade Bay Constructors'.
He prides himself on being a hands-on business owner and can always be found on the jobsite working just as hard as the next guy. Shawn has aligned himself with great trades people and only works with reliable sources.
When asked what his interests are, he will always answer first with 'my job' ... followed then by hunting, fishing, hiking, etc!
Born and raised in the beautiful Okanagan, Cody grew up immersed in the construction industry. Having worked alongside his father, Shawn for over 10 years both on, and off site, he has developed a strong understanding of the field which directly translates into a functional, achievable design approach. While obtaining his Interior Design Diploma & Interior Decorating Certificate, Cody succeeded in expanding his creative ability while discovering and refining his design style.
The Okanagan summer is always calling Cody's name. He can be found enjoying the outdoors, spending time with his pup, family & friends.
As a Kelowna local, Matt became connected to Jade Bay through family friends over 10 years ago. Inspired by the men in his life involved in various trades, he has since completed his 'Red Seal Journeyman Carpenter' certification. Matt enjoys staying active due to the physical demands of the job, while taking advantage of being outdoors while at work. Seeing a project take shape & come together is a key reason Matt is passionate about his career.
When not working, Matt can be found spending time with his growing Family, hiking, fishing, hunting, and just enjoying the Okanagan lifestyle!
