General News

WIBCO Construction is proud to announce it recently made the pre-qualified general contractors list with BC Housing. The pre-qualification will provide WIBCO the opportunity to bid on various housing projects. The staff are excited to have the opportunity and are looking forward to their first successful bid!

WIBCO completed the Sncewips Heritage Museum and Syilx Trail Gift Store Tenant Improvements in December 2019 and is currently working on another T.I. for the Westbank Salvation Army. To increase revenue WIBCO is also been working on construction projects outside WFN.

Paul has been actively working with WFN, OTDC and Fortis BC to take part in the RENEW Program, which will provide entry level construction training, to select participants with an emphasis on safety and energy efficiency. WIBCO is working with WFN on a suitable project for the 2-week on-site training. The RENEW Program is expected to take place late Spring or early Summer 2020.   

Project Updates

The company successfully completed a significant en-suite/ master bedroom renovation in Lakeridge Park last quarter. This work included a new custom shower, vanity, countertops and built-in open shelves.  

WIBCO secured a tenant improvement project with the Salvation Army (Westbank) this past quarter. The project includes the new construction of full height demising walls and modification to the electrical and HVAC to suit a new sorting / storage area.

Lastly, WIBCO was hired for an extensive home renovation for a family in Glenrosa. The project is nearing completion and is on time and under budget. Feel free to checkout all the progress photos online.
