Guest Speaker: Jeff Langford, Partner, Jeff Langford1910 Construction Group

Jeff grew up in rural Southern Ontario where his life on the family farm taught him the value of family and a hard day's work. He combines this work ethic with his passion for design, heritage restoration and new home construction in the 1910 Construction Group. Following in his ancestor’s footsteps as master builders, Jeff enjoys being hands-on throughout the construction process.

Beginning his construction career as a carpenter, he worked his way through post-secondary education. Now with over 25 years’ experience, Jeff brings a wealth of knowledge to every renovation project and new custom home. He takes pride in being Certified Built Green builder, registered member of the ITA apprenticeship program, member of the GVHBA and participant in the Renovator’s Council.

If your are a green builder, Jeff is the person to ask to get real answers to questions you may have on the practicalities of efficient construction with Nudura and other green products.
