PekarBilt Homes & Commercial ltd. By jessica mees
he founders of PekarBilt Homes and Commercial Ltd. are proud of their roots. Being raised in rural Saskatchewan and growing up in Regina and area have instilled a sense of prairie practicality and ingenuity that guides PekarBilt’s business operations. With the owners having a combined experience of over 35 years in the construction industry, customers can rely on their expert guidance. Loving what they do and going to work with eager smiles on their faces, President Randy Pekar, Vice-President Larry Lolacher and Sales and Operations Manager Dale Metcalf are quite the team. Prior to PekarBilt, Metcalf was a past chair of the Regina & Region Home Builders’ Association (RRHBA). This made PekarBilt’s decision to become a member a no-brainer. “The members of the main management group at PekarBilt all have past experience through other companies with the Home Builders’ Association. We do really see the value in its membership,” said Metcalf. “Personally I had a vested interest in the Regina & Region Home Builders’ Association for over 12 years, serving on the board. I served two years as a vice-chair, two years as a chair and one year as a past-chair.” As for the values the Association brings to PekarBilt, management sees advantages in using the RRHBA website for marketing their product. They also recognize that the RRHBA logo itself brings many customers in. “I think when people see the logo, they associate that with trust,” Metcalf confirmed. Giving the customer exactly what they want has always been the end goal for PekarBilt management. Clients building entry level homes, multi-million dollar dream homes or commercial buildings are all given outstanding service and attention. This team wants their finished products to make clients beam from ear to ear. 92 You’re home Summer 2014
