Our Story

Sandy Hill Construction started out in 1995 as a small construction business servicing the needs of the Sandy Hill neighbourhood in Ottawa. Initially, our focus was on historical restoration projects. Over the years, we grew into one of Ottawa’s most successful design-build home renovation companies.

A dedicated team with sound experience and in-depth knowledge of the construction process, Sandy Hill Construction offers a highly personalized design-build experience. Led by award-winning renovator, John Wenuk, the company takes great pride in their exceptional work.

We put our clients’ needs first, understanding all of their requirements, and working closely them to bring their vision to life. Proven leadership, clear communication, positive experiences and solid relationships are what we are all about.


It is important for us to continue building on the already established foundation of Sandy Hill Construction‭, ‬proudly representing 20+‭ ‬years in the Ottawa design-build industry‭. ‬With a team of experienced and talented professionals‭, ‬our goal is to keep pushing the boundaries of construction and design‭. ‬We have a passion for quality‭. ‬We are committed to maintaining the highest standards for superior construction and materials‭ ‬‮–‬‭ ‬and we enjoy working with homeowners who appreciate the quality that will stand the test of time‭.‬

We recognize that location is the most important factor when it comes to your family home‭, ‬and as the housing market continues to evolve‭, ‬homeowners need to make updates to suit their changing needs‭. ‬Spanning over two decades‭, ‬we are so proud to have worked on changing the face of many of Ottawa’s most established neighbourhoods‭.‬
