It was 1967 when brothers Jerry and Hans Luking decided to start building quality, single family homes in Richmond, B.C.


A year later, Contour Construction was incorporated and Jerry and Hans honed their craft of building exceptional homes in neighbourhoods throughout Richmond. After several years of construction, the brothers saw an opportunity to provide the same building standards at a greater scale, and therefore turned their energies toward multi-family homes. By the late 1970’s, the first townhome complex was completed and the foundation of Lakewood was formed. Over these years Lakewood has steadily built a reputation as quality builders who design, build, and help shape communities throughout Greater Vancouver. In 1991, Lakewood Development opened the doors to their Surrey office, where they currently operate. Today, they are one of the most respected and trusted builders in Greater Vancouver.

Lakewood is a proud builder of communities, neighbourhoods and homes throughout Greater Vancouver. Today, over 4,000 families are proud owners of Lakewood family homes. With each current and future project, the legacy and reputation of Lakewood is reflected in the quality of each and every home built.
