TLPI Residential project


The Lake Partnership Inc. (TLPI) was founded in 1994 and has a proven track record of building a wide range of custom projects and spaces of the highest quality. Starting out, we completed mainly residential homes, renovations and additions. Today our project and construction management team focus on a cross-section of commercial and residential projects.

Our area of expertise is custom build projects where problem solving, organizational capacity and the embrace of new and complex technology is required. We excel by having critical competencies in areas such as sustainability, technology and engineering to inform client decisions and help align parameters with client goals. Accountability is provided to clients through transparency based on sophisticated finance, accounting and budget tracking.

Each construction project is approached like a business case. We develop clear objectives and input is gathered from all key participants to inform decisions. This integrated management process encompasses all parties including clients, architects, design teams, external consultants, regulatory authorities, trades and suppliers. We manage through carefully cultivated relationships built on mutual respect and understanding and ensure the objectives of all parties are aligned. In turn this minimizes frictional (waste) costs and efforts are focused on seeking  value for money.

At The Lake Partnership Inc., we have an award winning residential construction team comprised of dedicated project managers, site managers and skilled trades. For over 25 years, we have been building custom homes, additions and large-scale renovations including numerous green homes. Sustainable home certifications include LEED Platinum & Gold, R-2000, and Passive House. We apply our knowledge of building energy efficient structures wherever possible and do our best to recycle, reuse or donate materials. Years of experience enable us to properly guide clients to meet their goals financially, sustainably and architecturally.  

In 2012, we branched into commercial construction and have worked on many exciting fit up and real estate development projects. Noteworthy tenant fit ups were completed such as the Bridgehead Roastery and all office space for Ottawa’s tech darling, Shopify. Developments include the multi-unit Springfield Towns as well as St. Charles Market, a mixed-use development on Beechwood Avenue. It is imperative for business owners and developers to understand construction costs and timelines in order to coordinate finances and business operations appropriately. Our team works diligently to ensure clients are properly informed and well guided in order to meet objectives.

We build awesome designs and honest relationships. If you have an exciting new project in mind, reach out today. We look forward to making your design vision come to fruition.
