THE FOUNDER - JC Godard
With more than 40 years of design, development and construction experience, Jean-Claude (JC) Godard is a visionary, a self-motivated leader who sees success as a result of hard work, detailed planning and determination.
Born and raised in Cornwall, a community of almost 44,000 thousand people situated along the St. Lawrence River in Eastern Ontario, Mr. Godard began his career in 1973 at the age of 19. He was the sole founder and owner of "Godard Construction" a company of ten employees that offered renovations and new home construction in and around the Cornwall Area.
Seeking new opportunities, Mr. Godard moved to the nation's capital, Ottawa, Ontario, in 1980 where he founded "Canada Trim," a company supplying interior trim to local builders.
In 1982, Mr. Godard founded Oakwood Building Consultants Ltd., which consisted of a retail building-products store, a full service lumberyard and a kitchen manufacturing facility. At the time, The Sunday Herald reported "Oakwood Building Consultants Ltd., has built a reputation as one of the region's most reliable and conscientious suppliers of interior trim products for both the major builders and the small contractor of home builder looking for quality and affordable materials." By the time the company was sold in 1986, it had grown to 94 employees and installers, and boasted annual gross sales of over 6.5 million.
Never one to sit still, shortly after selling Oakwood Building Consultants Ltd., Mr. Godard expanded his horizons with the 1986 incorporation of Tri-Star Living Inc.
Wholly owned and operated by Mr. Godard, Tri-Star Living Inc. focuses its energies on Custom Home building and Tri-Star Living facilities. To date, 15 Tri-Star Living facilities, representing 986 units, have been completed and over 285 Custom Homes built.
In 1999, Mr. Godard moved back to Cornwall, Ontario, and is concentrating on building communities in his home town and throughout Ontario.
