What defines Plat:form Properties is not a single style of development or holding, but rather our non-linear approach to the business. Where some companies focus on either residential or commercial development, our diverse skill set allows us to select from a wider range of opportunities.
Our name says it all — the word “plat” means plot of land, and “form” stands for the innovative manner in which we shape it. Plat:form also represents a meeting place for creative minds, and the coming together of a team.
Plat:form began in 2002, originally as KMS Developments. Working with the Townline Group of Companies, KMS was involved in the creation of numerous high-profile developments in the Lower Mainland (among these: Ikea Coquitlam, Thunderbird Creek and Queensborough Landing).
In 2010, KMS expanded, reborn as Plat:form. In the tradition of KMS, Plat:form continues to build on opportunities and relationships, with a deft approach to the ever-evolving business of property development.
At Plat:form our success is connected to the values that drive our approach to property development. These values not only define us, but also distinguish us from many other development companies.
We create value in real estate by building relationships through commitment, trust, and our hands-on approach to finding solutions that benefit those we work with. We live our values daily and use them to guide our work, make decisions, and create opportunities. These are our five core values:
People Matter: We believe the success of our company is dependent on the relationships we create among our team, our partners, our customers, and the people and communities with which we engage.
Never Give Up: We remain committed to our projects, through their inevitable ups and downs, and are always seeking solutions as to how best to move forward.
Trusted Developer: Our reputation is critical to our success and we strive to build trust through our honest, collaborative, and experienced approach.
Connected to Our Success: We maintain a hands-on approach through all phases of our projects, and although it generates additional workload, we still believe this delivers the best possible end result.
Win-Win Philosophy: In a culture of respect, we work to find and execute the best possible solutions for all involved, with the underlying belief that the most successful projects are the ones where everyone benefits.
