"From the very beginning, our family built the business on a good working relationship with every customer, every step along the way. That’s the only way to provide the best value for our customers."
Richard Stevanus, Founder
Rich Stevanus along with his original business partner, knew that building a principled company with a collaborative culture would ensure that all employees had the opportunity to flourish in their work. Rich was motivated to provide his employees and customers with a better building experience.
Almost 10 years later, Rich and wife Dianne became the sole owners of VanDel. Together, they grew the business and quickly developed a reputation for excellence, fairness and honesty in construction management projects.
Rich and Dianne’s three sons, Bryan, Don and Tim, each entered into what would become a thriving family business. Following their parents’ guiding principles of an impeccable work ethic, the younger Stevanus men took on roles ideal to their strengths. They continued to earn the reputation that Rich and Dianne started by exceeding their customers expectations.
VanDel Construction continues to operate on the principles and culture of fairness, honesty, trust and innovation. Today, we have more than 75 employees that operate out of our 19,000 sq ft. facility in Bloomingdale, ON. We are Ontario's premier construction management builder specializing in Retirement Living, Long Term Care facilities, and commercial hospitality projects.
As a family-owned construction business, VanDel operates on a collaborative team-based approach that respects the knowledge, expertise and integrity of all our employees. We consistently outfit our employees with quality tools and vehicles and support their continual upgrading of skills to take advantage of technology and innovation to improve project outcomes.
