The Patmar Team

We may not be a large company by some standards, and that's on purpose... But there's no shortage of passion and talent in our midst.

The Patmar Team consists of our staff, executive management, and indirectly, but yet a very important part of who we also call "team", are those professional tradespeople we subcontract, as well. We couldn't do what we do without their talents.

Here's our Management Team:

Vern Mueller, President

With a business administration diploma and a ticket in carpentry, Vern has supervised everything from small scale projects to large scale high-rise buildings in his 40 years in the business. His vast knowledge and reputation is well known in the industry, and has earned him the respect of architects, engineers and sub-trades alike. Vern is the founder of Patmar Developments Limited. His present responsibilities include quality control and oversight of the day-to-day operation of the business. He's truly the "ambassador" of our company.

Darcy Sander, Project manager/Estimator

Darcy graduated from the Southern Institute of Technology in Architectural Technology. He started out his career as a field engineer on large commercial projects performing survey activities and resolving on-site conflicts. Over the past two decades, he has gained his diverse experience via a multitude of commercial/retail and industrial construction projects. He's mastered everything from project costing to project management. Darcy has become one of the leading project estimators in the Calgary region, and is a valuable asset to the Patmar Team.

Marcus Mueller, Office manager/Project Coordinator

After completing his business administration & management diploma, Marcus gained management experience in Europe working as a general manager for a restaurant and bar. Since his return to Canada in 2004 to join Patmar, he has gained considerable expertise as a project coordinator on and off site. He currently handles the business administration and office management for Patmar. Marcus has also broadened his extensive knowledge base via various classes in Project Scheduling, Project Management and Construction Contract Law.

Construction Project Management

Construction Project Management is a process by which the owner's roll is re-defined as the "contractor", with Patmar acting as agents.
This can be utilized as a tool for construction of a pre-planned facility or for enhancing a Project Management approach to building.

The Construction Manager becomes responsible for recommendations of the parties to tender, tendering all facets of construction, recommendations for which tenders to accept, co-ordination, supervision and scheduling of all pre-construction, construction, and postconstruction activities.

Competitive tendering for the work takes place at the sub-trade level.
The re-alignment of contractual obligations ensures the Construction Manager's best interests parallel those of the owner.
For this service, Patmar charges a fee for their participation which becomes a fixed overhead for the project.
