Rooted in Vancouver’s History

Founded in 2013, KRA was first located in the heart of Vancouver’s historic Japantown. The pre-WWII building was originally built as the Japan Canada Trust Savings Company. Principal Kirsten Reite and her partner, Lance Burger, owner of Bon Constructors, purchased and revitalized the building using their respective expertise in Architecture and Construction Management.

In 2020, KRA relocated to a new office in Strathcona Village. KRA and Bon Constructors thoughtfully designed and constructed a unique office space that is home to over 30 KRA team members, and Bon Constructors.
