Who we are

Projects in Place is a volunteer-run, non-profit society formed in Vancouver in 2008. We are a multi-disciplinary group of volunteers whose skills include design, planning, ecology, engineering, construction and more. We bring design and construction professionals together with the general public, using a collaborative model to create and implement innovative projects that benefit the community and demonstrate sustainability.

What we do

Any project, any place. We help people not just imagine, but build sustainable neighborhoods and stronger communities through design and build projects. We do this by coordinating volunteer builds which allow us to complete projects for far less than they would otherwise cost through the contribution of volunteer-based or highly reduced professional services, labour and materials.
