Lars Van Linge
After amassing 10 years of hands-on experience as a Red Seal carpenter, Lars founded Teragon in 2002 and has been fuelling his passion for building unique, beautiful homes ever since. Lars is committed to staying informed on the latest building technologies and prioritizing details that set Teragon apart from the competition. He’s proud to have built an industry-leading team that shares his passion and dedication for building gorgeous custom homes. As a diligent community member, he also serves as a volunteer on the Lower Mainland’s Affordable Housing Societies Board of Directors. A White Rock resident for most of his life, Lars loves spending time with his family, cruising on his Harley, exploring in his Jeep, and backcountry camping.
Matt has been in the construction industry for over 20 years, starting out as an engineering technologist and designing homes all over Canada and the US. After dabbling in window and concrete sales, then transitioning to a project management role in residential construction, Matt joined the Teragon team in 2019. Holding certificates in Gold Seal Construction Management, VRCA Gold Seal Project Management, and more, Matt’s passion for professional growth and fulfilling the dreams of families are what keep him rooted in residential projects. When he’s not managing construction builds or updating his own home, Matt loves staying active in BC’s great outdoors with his family through fishing, hunting, and skiing.
With seven years of construction experience under her belt and a fine eye for detail, Chelsea handles day-to-day site management, solving any issue that may arise and keeping tradespeople organized and on time. She passed the Ace-It (Accelerated Credit Enrolment to Industry Training) program at the top of her class and graduated with a Red Seal carpenter ticket from North Island College by the time she was 21. Her passion for the industry is what motivates her to keep learning, and she gets immense satisfaction from working with great people and building clients their dream homes. In her spare time, she loves cheering on her family at the hockey rink and lakeside camping in the summer with her boat.
Mike’s nearly 50 years of construction experience began in carpentry with a family-run business. He worked on multi-family and commercial builds before entering the luxury home space in 1987, where he discovered his passion for single-family projects. Over the years, he went from tradesperson to management, now mostly handling schedule coordination, logistics, and quality control for Teragon, although he occasionally breaks out the tools to keep his hands-on skills sharp. He’s professionally driven by curiosity — keeping up with design trends and implementing new building technologies — and an aptitude for clear communication, which allows him to deliver top quality service and workmanship. As a semi-professional musician and enthusiastic motorcyclist, Mike can’t imagine living outside the Vancouver area, where he jams with some very talented people and enjoys the great outdoors.
Brent may be the newest addition to the Teragon team, but he’s been part of the residential construction scene for over 40 years. He first learned to frame houses in his twenties, working with his uncle and cousin, and he never looked back as he went on to amass extensive experience. In addition to meticulously managing projects from the planning stage onwards, Brent is Teragon’s go-to guy for overseeing ongoing site maintenance once builds are complete. With a passion for collaborating with the tight-knit crew of local tradespeople he’s gotten to know over the years, Brent’s driven to tackle challenging builds that keep him on his toes, and especially enjoys finishing carpentry. A dad to three grown kids, he loves travelling to the Okanagan in his spare time and making the most of his green thumb in his South Surrey garden.
