Some testimonials from past clients 


“Proline Properties Ltd. has had the opportunity to work with T&J Hateley construction on both Residential and Commercial projects.  In each situation, Theo and his team have been hard working, on time, on budget and fair.  They have extensive product and technical knowledge that opened the door to new ideas and solutions when needed.   In our company trust is the most important quality when hiring a contractor.  I can say that during the last 25 years working in the construction industry, Theo is one of the most trust worthy people I have worked with.”

"T&J Hateley Construction Ltd. built us a custom home on our 3 ½ acre water front property at East Sooke in 2012. Theo comes from a family of builders so his knowledge of the building trade is wholesome and he undertook some of the custom work himself. We were particularly impressed by Theo’s devotion to detail including personally building the old growth fir archway entrance, and using his expertise or experienced trades to install the hardwood engineered flooring, the stairwells and bannisters, the wood burning fireplace mantle and stone work and built-in granite 10 person dining table. He was diligent about his monthly accounting and very receptive to changes, noting & correcting any deficiencies found. He worked with a local but small team of workers who respected his knowledge and management style. I would recommend Theo to anyone who wishes to use his custom building talents to develop a uniquely styled and functional home.

We've worked with T&J Hateley Construction twice now and both times have been utterly impressed with their professionalism.  From accurate quoting, to managing sub trades, to ensuring quality and always accepting responsibility for all aspects of the project, Theo is exactly the GC that a client seeks to work with.  Can't recommend them highly enough!

I hired T&J Hateley Construction Ltd. to complete the wood framing at the new McCall Gardens Funeral Home. The structural design included large span wood trusses installed at height to create the vast open service room and exposed structural cedar decking over glulams at the front entry. Architectural features included a barreled and exposed wood ceiling and a vaulted chapel ceiling. All these elements were executed with care, precision and a sense of urgency. Design and constructability concerns were flagged early allowing us to resolve these issues prior to any impact on the construction schedule. All this contributed to a successful project budget and a very happy client. I look forward to my next project with T&J Hateley Construction.

We had a very positive experience working with T&J Hateley Construction Ltd. on multiple projects this year. They were absolutely great to deal with and provided an excellent final product. Friendly, timely, and reliable – would not hesitate to work with this local company again in future.

T&J Hateley Construction Ltd. built our custom home in rural south Vancouver Island in 2017-2018.

The project required everything from permit applications and approvals to site preparation, utilities access and house construction.  TJ Hateley Construction managed and executed the entire build.  It was the height of the residential construction boom here. Building supplies and trades were in high demand. Despite some serious logistical problems with key construction components, TJ Hateley Construction kept the project going. There was a lot of work to do but our home was ready to move into in 9 months.  Neighbours were impressed that there was someone working on site every day. We attribute this to the excellent working relationship TJ Hateley Construction has with their team of local construction workers and trades. As our contact person, Theo Hateley responded promptly to questions and concerns and kept us updated about the progress of the build.  After we moved in, the company dealt the same way with outstanding issues and warranty follow up. Theo has continued to be available to us with information and support as we continue to develop our property.  

We love our home. We remain grateful to have found T&J Hateley Construction as our builder.
