Geoff Berry, his wife Pamela, and their five children, moved to Cranbrook in the fall of 2007. They wanted to raise their children in a smaller town environment and also take advantage of the vast outdoor experiences available in the Kootenay's.
Geoff's business experience began in Chilliwack, opening his first pizza franchise outlet “Canadian 2 for 1 Pizza” in 1998. After five years of successfully navigating his way through that competitive market, Geoff decided to branch out and develop his own pizza franchise, “Monster's Pizza”.
One store then grew to two in Chilliwack, and then a third location was opened in the fall of 2004 in Williams Lake BC. The fourth and final store was opened in July of 2005 in Hinton AB. In between developing these stores, Geoff took advantage of the building boom that started in 2003 in Chilliwack.
Geoff learned the trade of foundations and framing, during the days not on the road, from a talented journeyman carpenter, Tony Rahn-Born.
After the Hinton store opened, Pamela and Geoff decided to change fields and continue on in construction, to remain closer to home and their family. By 2006 Geoff's fast paced learning allowed him to go on his own and continue to build under his own company Geoff's Carpentry. After the move to Cranbrook Geoff continued to build and work for local general contractors.
By the fall of 2008 Geoff took a foreman's position at Stonebrook Developments. Six months after starting at Stonebrook, he was promoted to Superintendant of Construction. Geoff oversaw all the builds, from layout to the handing over of keys, of nearly twenty-five houses over the next two years.
In 2010, Geoff decided to continue with his own business doing foundations, framing, project management, and consulting to name a few areas. The network of trades and individuals he met at Stonebrook, as well as his extensive ability to manage sites, sub-trades, and co-workers, has catapulted him into being one of the best in the industry. Geoff's straight forward dealings and keen eye for quality have been well received by many clients and sub-trades.
Geoff and his crew look forward to continuing high quality workmanship and continue to expand their network in Cranbrook. They are sure you will be pleased with their work and look forward to showing you their talents and abilities.
