Our People – Family Photos
Meet the people of Beyond
We attract employees who are smart, fun and work well as a team member within our family culture. We are very proud of our work and love to celebrate the people that make it happen.
We love making our employees happy, and here is proof!
Donavan is a true culture guy and a team player. He has been with Beyond since 2020 and from the first minute has shown himself as a self starter, engaged and a relentless worker. When asked what Dono likes about working with Beyond he says it’s the team culture and the family feel.
One of Dono’s highlight jobs was spraying a yurt. Everything from getting the spray foam rig to the site, spraying the unique job and staying at a place where they had to stoke a fire to stay warm was super neat.
Juan believes that every good company should have a ‘family feel’ and that is the number one reason why he loves working at Beyond. Since early 2020 Juan has stepped in and stepped up as a leader at Beyond with his expertise, with equipment and hard work ethic.
Although Juan has many ‘favorite’ jobs, the one that sticks out to him was a complete spray foam roof where he applied 3lb roofing foam at Mountain Creek Farms. It was Juan’s first large roof that he sprayed primarily by himself and it turned out amazing.
Benji loves that as Beyond grows it just feels like a bigger family. He also loves that his bosses never give up on him and have pushed him in the right direction. What we love about Benji is he is striving for more and wants to become great at his role.
A highlight project for Benji was working on set design for Fraggle Rock (now showing on Apple TV). He was able to cast his cares away, worries for another day and simply ‘let the music play’… down at Fraggle Rock!
Kris loves the mutual respect he see and feels daily at Beyond. For him, it doesn’t matter if you’re an installer, CEO, estimator, CFO or operations, everyone is rowing in the same direction trying to hit common goals.
Kris is a relentless human that loves to see the complete customer journey go well. This is everything from how they find us to completing projects that meet everyone’s expectations. His most memorable project is the Calgary Farmers Market which turned out amazing and thousands of people get to walk through it and see what Beyond has done.
Corey – It was the company culture that drew Corey to start working at Beyond and it is what made it his 2nd family. From the 1st day everyone around Corey knew he would be a long term fit because his positive attitude and pursuit to make others around him great was apparent.
Corey’s favorite project has been the Safeway Voila. He loved seeing the team develop and grow together while working on this multi-modality project.
Rob, more than anything loves the energy and says it bounces off everyone. There’s always laughter in the shop and on the job sites and that’s what keeps him working so hard. He also likes meeting all the new hires and working with the ones that fit our DNA.
Rob’s favorite project was a huge roof tear off and reapply in Red Deer. It was a project that other roofing companies couldn’t complete, but our crew were able to. He also loved working on tv/movie sets, such as Heartland and Fraggle Rock.
Tia– It was an easy answer for Tia as she simply said, “the people are like a second family and I’m fortunate to work with them, they push me to grow and grow with me”.
We love Tia because of her love for safety. She is key in making sure everyone gets home safe and she does it better than anyone. Tia also was the main driver in our Beyond Awesome Onboarding Program. If you want to learn more about this, you just have to apply!
Jacob loves working at Beyond because we are able to give young people an opportunity to learn and grow. He hopes to capitalize on this and earn a great living as he gets more experience.
Jacob loves working on projects in the mountains. Even when jobs can get stressful, the view makes it peaceful and enjoyable.
Dan loves working at Beyond because of the family feel. The owners really care about the people at Beyond and their families. He has nothing but respect for the whole team.
Dan’s favourite project that we have worked on is the BMO expansion. This is a massive undertaking requiring a full team effort.
Brady says, “I love that this place feels like a family and they understand that life is about the balance of work and home. If there are big issues at home they are willing to make a plan with me, which is awesome’. Brady also loves that we have a store in the office where he, and the rest of the crew can pick up snacks, drinks and lunch supplies for their day.
Brady’s best project was a multi-family project where the crew lifted multiple driveways, sidewalks and patios. They were able to solve new issues every 15 minutes and create great results for our clients.
Dan is a man of few words, but simply stated he loves Beyond because of the culture and the opportunities for growth. We love Dan because he’s willing to work hard everyday creating safe places and happy people.
Dan’s enjoyed working on the Homes For Heroes project. Beyond donated time and material to help build tiny homes for people who have served our country. This was a meaningful project for a lot of the team.
Justice loves the variety of jobs he gets to do at Beyond. It feels like it’s never the same work 2 days in a row. He loves to expand his knowledge and do things he has never done before.
Justice’s favourite project was set design for the new Predator movie, Skulls.
Mauri loves working at Beyond because of the endless opportunities for growth, learning and new experiences. She also loves how incredibly supportive the team is and it truly feels like family.
Her favourite project has been Safeway Voila. It’s a massive structure and she has learned so many new firestopping techniques. For Mauri, just being part of a project for a company like Safeway feels awesome.
When asked what Steve loves about working at Beyond his answer was short and sweet, ‘the people’. He loves the friends that he has made and enjoys getting things accomplished with them.
His favourite project was the first one he sprayed by himself- a Subaru dealership where the foam came out looking mint.
For Nathan, working at Beyond is a family affair. He loves that his dad, brother and best friend all get to work together and accomplish jobs.
His favourite project was a day trip to Golden BC as the drive was nice and the job went perfectly for the client.
Youssif loves that he can come to work everyday and learn something new in this growing trade. He also says he loves being part of a growing and beautiful group of people who are willing to share knowledge with him.
Although he doesn’t have an actual ‘favourite project’, he likes being a part of every job that creates a warm, safe place and happy customers.
Adam loves his job because the Beyond team has always tried to curate a positive workplace. They also allow for personal growth and actively pushes people towards it.
Adam loves any jobs in the mountains and it doesn’t matter what he is doing when he gets there!
Oshwah loves working at Beyond because he works on something new everyday. He also loves that the team feels like a family. Everyday people are saying good morning and asking how he is doing and there is no better feeling. He says it’s a lot easier getting up in the morning when he knows people at work are all happy to be there.
Oshwah couldn’t just pick one favorite project so we allowed him 2. The Kananaskis Lodge and the Strathmore High School GreenHouse were his favorite jobs.
Kevin loves that Beyond has put him through the passes and he has been able to work a bit in all of the divisions. He is gaining skill sets and loves the progression of the jobs. As he says, ‘at Beyond I’m able to earn a fat pay cheque and it is a solid career choice for me”
Kevin has enjoyed working at the BMO project and working at a high level has been challenging and rewarding.
Mike loves working at Beyond. He says he is treated with respect and dignity. ‘It’s truly like a family as everyone cares for each other’. Mike has not had that feeling at any other workplace and feels blessed to be part of the Beyond team.
His favorite project was one done at a custom home in Dewinton where we sprayed the entire envelope. He loved being let loose on the massive vaults and laying down some beautiful foam.
Jared says, “I love working at Beyond because of the culture. Even when mistakes are made, we feel supported and are able to learn from them. It is easy to grow and be better here.”
Jared’s favorite project is working on the BMO expansion. It is big, complicated and a very cool project.
