ANR prides itself in being able to consistently deliver on its motto of producing projects “beyond expectations.” Previous projects include, but are not limited to: retail stores (both new construction and renovations), brand new retail box stores ranging from 15,000 to 23,000 square feet (fully turn keyed in some cases), professional spaces including offices and medical facilities, locally and nationally recognized restaurants, and multiple bowling alleys. One of our feature projects is the construction of the Tourism Kelowna Visitors Centre in 2018. This project included modern features like sloped, curved roofs, metal wall cladding, and nano doors. The Visitor’s Centre also won the Award of Merit in the Thompson Okanagan Kootenay Commercial Building Awards in 2018. ANR was also the runner up in the institutional category for the Woodworks BC Awards for our use of four different kinds of BC wood in the Tourism Kelowna Visitors Centre.
ANR Construction Ltd is a general contractor based out of Kelowna, BC but works all over Western Canada. We are a passionate team of professionals that enjoy what they do.
We can handle new spaces, renovations and high intensity renovations, new facades, signage and everything in between. We have worked in most major cities in Western Canada and the majority of the large developers and malls.
We have built buildings from BC to Manitoba. We have worked with many developers and malls to upgrade the exterior to a more energy efficient shell along with making the building more attractive for foot traffic. We have the expertise to add splash and dollars back into your pocket.
ANR’s code knowledge greatly helped during our design phase meetings with the clients. Restaurant clients always want to maximize seating in the smallest space possible. During our initial space planning meeting ANR made note of a new code changing egress paths to 1500mm from the 1200mm in the previous code. Thankfully this was done early in the planning, so the client did not have the expectations of a higher occupant load.
On the smaller salon projects ANR was able to aid on the building permit applications. This made our job much easier. After the plan review ANR returned the drawings to use so we could update the, into IFC drawings. Many GC’s overlook this step and when the final is called on a project there are outstanding issues.
Working with ANR has proven to be an asset to the design process with industry knowledge that aids in the execution of a well designed project – I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Their ability to plan and execute fast paced, demanding projects like restaurants is an example of their management skills. Our common clients had evolving brands which always kept us inventing ways to maintain timelines.
Our experience with ANR has been positive. They take feedback and listen to our needs so we can make quick work of our scope. We have been hired through the client and not directly by ANR, but they always made us part of the team. ANR held weekly site projection meetings and kept in contact even when we were not on the site.
ANR’s site supervisors have always been knowledgeable of our scope of work which I’m sure is translated down from their PM’s. When we need something rushed, they try their best to accommodate even though we are not one of their subtrade’s. Always a treat working with their staff.
