Our History

BMS Plumbing and Mechanical Systems Ltd. was incorporated in 1984 as Better Mechanical Systems Ltd. We started as a mechanical contractor specializing in new installations in the construction industry, and operated a service department that provided plumbing, gas, and HVAC system work for more than 60 major companies in Vancouver and across the Lower Mainland.

In 1985, however, we noticed an increased number of buildings suffering from the deterioration of their domestic water piping systems. This led us to focus on the specialized area of repiping. In fact, we completed one of the first full building repiping projects in the Lower Mainland: a 30-story 270-suite high-rise in 1986. We were also the first repiping company to complete a stainless steel repipe in a strata-titled building of 100 suites in 2013. View the Vancouver Sun article here.

Working closely with consulting engineers and experimenting with different methods of upgrading piping systems, we established one of the first systematic pipe replacement methods.

We are an A+ member of the Better Business Bureau, and are insured and bonded by a reputable insurance firm. BMS has been repiping different types of buildings for over 34 years. We only employ skilled and reliable tradesmen who are experienced in all facets of construction and repiping, especially plumbing and civil work in occupied buildings.

We are proud to continue serving the industry and providing job satisfaction to all our clients and staff. Learn more about our Partners, What Our Clients Say, and how we give back.
