About the Founders

Jeff Melo is the Managing Principal at the helm of MELO Construction. His father, mentor and founder, Jose Melo, started the company in 1973. Coming from an established history of craftsmen, Jose started the business shortly after he moved to Vancouver from Portugal. Jose’s father was a foreman at a millwork company and his grandfather was involved in carriage building. This background laid the groundwork for future generations in the construction industry. Jose is now retired; however, his breadth of knowledge, experience and vision will always be valued by the company he founded many years ago.
It’s fair to say that Jeff has construction in his blood. Already by the young age of five, he knew, without a doubt, what he was going to be as an adult and hasn’t looked back since. He loves being involved with beautiful and challenging work. Jeff’s biggest joy is seeing his customers happy and he embraces being someone they can count on to deliver. With a strong foundation at BCIT, coupled with the mentorship of European craftsman, there is no challenge too great. He spent two summers in Mexico volunteering to build homes for the less fortunate. Jeff sees the value that a home brings to families.
