Our Unique Family

At Unique Home Concepts our culture is one that directly represents a family dynamic rich in support, empathy, compassion and loyalty. As a family we ensure that everyone feels at home whether they are in the office, on the sites or in the comforts of their own homes on the good days and the bad ones. In our Unique family we are proud to stand next to each of its members as we reach our Unique goals.

Wade Pilat sm

I have been a proud part of the Grande Prairie community since I was four years old, back when Grande Prairie only had 15,000 people. Throughout my life I have been privileged to have grown up around parents that taught me to work hard and ensure your family is well supported and well loved, but to also be confident in accepting knowledge from others where you may lack. With that lesson I surrounded myself around business people from a young age that I could learn and grow from.

I was always intrigued by the way they conducted not only their business but also themselves. I made a choice to conduct whatever business I chose over the years whether it be in retail, as a Realtor, as a home builder or developer; in a way that reflects the high morals my parents and various mentors have taught me. By following those choices and learning from those lessons I am proud to say that I am a part of an incredibly supportive, compassionate, loyal family. I am fortunate to be able to say that those qualities don’t just apply to my wife Dalene and our two amazing daughters Priya and Saige, but extend to my Unique Family as well.

I started Unique Home Concepts Inc. in 2004 with just an idea of hiring a few contractors to build a single house, which I lived in, to a few napkin style blueprints that made their way onto a blueprint page to where we are today building 55 homes per year with more care and attention each and every year. As proud as I am about the building growth that we have accomplished, my real pride lies in my team and the culture that we have created together, and that the core values of why I started this company have stayed in place.

Our culture at Unique Home Concepts is one that many businesses conceptualize about on paper but don’t always achieve in reality. We are fortunate to have a team that acts like a family and pride themselves on maintaining that culture on a daily basis. We believe in being transparent with our team and encouraging and implementing their ideas for growth, supporting them in their passions to support our local community, profit sharing them within our company as you would within a traditional family; for Unique’s success is a reflection of our team as a whole. I have been consistently supported by a team of passionate and honorable team members trades, suppliers & mentors and without them this all wouldn’t have been possible.

As an owner it doesn’t get better than that!

I am proud to say that I am a mother to two beautiful daughters, Priya and Saige and a wife to my wonderful husband Wade, all the while being a part of our amazing Unique Family.

I am also very proud to come to work, on the days that I am not taking our girls to school and various extracurricular activities. I tend to refer to myself as the “Unique Gopher” as I often fill in and extend my abilities where ever needed. I enjoy doing these jobs as it allows me to work closely with various team members throughout the year and I never have the excuse of being bored. I have the greatest confidence, respect and loyalty towards our team because they are truly passionate about what they do and are dedicated to our culture that strongly reflects a family dynamic. We share stories, work load, laughs and frustrations with one another just like you would in a traditional family.

I am incredibly appreciative of the representation that each one of our team members brings to the table and the sense of ownership that everyone feels as they bring ideas and creations forward that we can incorporate into our homes and into our brand.

Wade and I are proponents of being actively involved in the community and are fortunate to attract team members within our Unique Family that feel the same way. We support our staff in donating work hours to community boards and committees as well as supporting them in giving back to the community by supplying them with a $2,000 cheque each year for them to deliver and donate to the charity of their choice. We believe in being active participants in supporting our community to reflect the changes that we want our children to see in the future and am excited to have our Unique Family members currently doing the same.
