If you have finish and form carpentry experience than we have an exciting opportunity for you!
We’re Sanderson Concrete, and we design and manufacture exceptional concrete products for the landscape, building, and architectural trades. Whether we’re making walls, steps, planters, benches, tables or signage for parks and buildings. We’re the leading architectural precast company in Western Canada.
Here’s where you come in.
As our shop carpenter, you’ll be involved in manufacturing a wide range of concrete products coming through our shop. We’ve produced everything from concrete ping pong tables to art installations (like 12-foot-long salmon sculptures), so you never know what’s going to be coming through the door next. We’ve made precast concrete for some of the most exciting and iconic projects in and around Vancouver – UBC, SFU, Robson Square, Kits Beach, Metro Vancouver Parks and more! Our precast concrete is even at the Grand Canyon and New York City!)
Wood is one of the main materials we use to produce moulds for our products from as all our pieces start with a mould of one type or another. With the wide variety of pieces, the moulds are different each time. There are specific ways we like to construct our moulds, and we will provide this training. Also, a lot of the work is thinking your way through the whole process and how the mould fits into the process.
