What started as a single home project years ago has since grown into a company that operates across the province. However, we still maintain the vision and values of our founder and current owner.
Growing up around a construction background, with a father who worked as a residential and commercial contractor, Peter Batson quickly found the answer to every graduate’s biggest question: what do I do now?
With a business degree from MUN, a love of construction work, and plenty of skills as a handyman, Peter enrolled in the Carpentry Program at the Carpenters Millwrights College. Soon after completing his program, he bought an older home on York Street to repair and renovate with the goal of reselling it. Thus, York Construction was born.
