  • Efficient Custom Design
    We are always increasing the energy performance
    of each home, which has led us to working with
    many different exterior wall systems, most
    recently the "passive house" standard - the most
    efficient energy consumption standard for
    housing to date.

    Focusses on planning and working closely
    with our clients to ensure their
    complete satisfaction.

Wakefield Construction was founded by Michael Urichuck

Born in the Gatineau Hills, my experience started as a summer job in construction with a neighbour. Starting when I was fifteen, I quickly earned responsibility and started to realize that I played an increasing part in building high-end custom homes from start to finish. As time passed, I worked with many highly recognized crews in many parts of the world, my building skills provided me with the confidence to go anywhere and build anything. I took ownership of my calling upon completion of an economics degree at the University of Ottawa. I built my own home at 23 years old, applying my limited resources efficiently. Once I started managing projects, I did not stop. I continue to learn new methods, and strive to find solutions for the future of our built environment.
