Our Story - Then

Our story begins in 1964 in Isola d’Ishcia, Italy, where Guiseppe Di Meglio and his family started building themselves a beautifully constructed home from the ground up. Only 17, he already had six years in the building trade and had developed his firmly-held belief to do things the right way, the first time, to ensure lasting results.


When Guiseppe set up his own construction company in Vancouver, he was already well-known in the local industry for his integrity, work ethic and high standards. His son, Joele, was introduced to the building site at age eight, learning the ropes and eventually apprenticing under Guiseppe.


Joele worked many years with his father, acquiring his master craftsmanship. In 2010 Joele struck out on his own, building upon what his father had started and shifting the business to be more customer centric.

Our Story - Now

Guiseppe’s values still hold true on every single job site: An uncompromising commitment to craftsmanship means there are no shortcuts. Honesty is the best policy. Dedication to hard work, while getting the job done right.


Joele’s values incorporate a commitment to putting the customer first. More than ensuring great customer service, NOVERO Homes & Renovations focuses on a better customer experience from the first meeting to post project. Placing a high importance on transparency, respect and effective communications, Joele and his team help minimize stress and instills confidence by being highly responsive and keeping you well informed.

Why Novero

For many years our company worked in Greater Vancouver under the name Di Meglio Construction Ltd. and DMC. In 2017 we rebranded as NOVERO Homes and Renovations.


Regrettably, many businesses appear to be in our industry for the wrong reasons. We hear too many unfortunate stories from clients about past experiences, and we’ve definitely come across an unbelievable amount of shoddy work.


“Novero” means “group” in Italian. This reflects the growth of the company, expanding beyond Joele and his father. NOVERO’s team is a strong, diverse group of trades, skills and value-added services. In Latin the root “nov” means “new”. With a renewed focus on our service offering, NOVERO is committed to raising the reputation of the home construction industry in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, especially in our key areas of workmanship, integrity and customer service.


Success of your project relies on the expertise and organization of the team running it—we invite you to meet with our family and experience the difference.
