Adam is founder and CEO of Naturally Crafted Contracting, Ltd., a Vancouver-based sustainable construction company. He is a certified “passive house” builder and a deconstruction and reclaimed wood expert. Adam flipped his first house with his father at the age 16 and was instantly hooked on crafting old, weathered spaces into fresh, well-built homes. Five years of running his own construction company proved to Adam that the demolition industry needed major changes, so in January of 2018 he launched an alternative: UnBuilders Deconstruction. Adam is passionate about the outdoors —skiing and mountain-climbing in particular —and is committed in providing a sustainable environmental future for generations to enjoy.
