Our Story

We are a Comox Valley owned and operated construction company that focuses on Residential, Commercial and Industrial construction.

Our founder, Rick Lacasse began his construction career in the valley in 1975 as a carpenter’s helper and never looked back. He co-founded Bur-Lac Construction with local entrepreneur David Burkard in 1988, and following a successful 18 year partnership which saw the construction of many projects in the Valley, Bur-Lac became Lacasse Construction.

Today, four Lacasse family members are directly involved in the day to day operations of the company. This helps us maintain the small company atmosphere that many of our clients have come to appreciate.

As a dynamic company, we work hard to ensure that we stay current and competitive in an ever changing industry. By doing so, we have been able to excel in our field, most recently showcased by being nominated for Vancouver Island Business of the Year 2017 in construction and development.

Through our commitment to quality, our honesty and our devotion to our clients, we have earned a solid reputation in the local community. We look forward to serving the people of the Comox Valley for many years to come.


Lacasse Construction is committed to the safety of the people and communities that live and exist around us. It is our intention to have our company, and consequently our members ensure that safety is to take precedence over all else while working with us.

Safety is to be a shared responsibility of each and every member of Lacasse Construction. It shall be an integral component of our company, and shall be at the forefront of every activity that we embark on. It is our belief that together, we can create a positive safety culture that will allow our company to ensure a safe and healthy workplace.

Along with WCB certification our team also maintains certifications in First Aid, WHMIS, Fall Protection, and Aerial Platform Operation.

What Our Clients Say

I want to specially mention the way you were able to meet the unexpected challenges that arose with the permitting process arising from the possibility of asbestos being present in the original construction from years ago. Through your careful and systematic approach to the issue, the concerns were addressed to the satisfaction of the inspectors and the project went ahead on schedule. I would also like to say what a pleasant experience it has been to work with you direct – you brought a real gift to the project in your way of interacting with the client – warm, understanding, and conveying a sense of strong commitment to your promises and to the CJC as an organization.
