Construction News

Fall 2021 WIBCO Construction successfully competed the duplex renovation on Fox Road for WFN. We also started construction on an office tenant improvement for the for the First Nations Finance Authority and won a large demolition contract for the demolition of the Little Kingdom Shopping Centre located on the Okanagan Indian Band.                                    

This Fall lumber prices have eased, but the general global shortage of goods, due to the heated construction market and Covid related delays have added an extra challenge to our projects. Thankfully,through hard work and proper planning, we have negated any delays to current projects. This past Fall also presented us with some new opportunities from insurance companies trying to secure qualified contractors for remediation of the properties, affected by the recent natural disasters (fire and flood). WIBCO was able to hire two new temporary full-time workers (WFN Members) for these projects. WIBCO is anticipating a busy Winter / Springtime with 3 new houses scheduled to start once the snow melts and ground thaws.

The project included elements to make the homes more accessible, including a concrete ramp, larger door openings and zero threshold shower.

The project will have some key design elements such as cedar carved panels, LED Skylights and a decorative herringbone ceiling.
