Sole owner of West-Eco, Duane Svendson, brings many years of hands-on experience working within the building industry.
The West-Eco team has knowledge of all facets of the design, construction, and manufacturing process of the panelized building system industry. We have worked with developers, architects, and general contractors throughout Canada, the US, and around the world to successfully complete countless projects ranging from cottages to large commercial projects.
With a true love for wood, the forest, and construction, Duane was originally led into the construction industry through the world of log home building, where he first learned about the true concept of pre-building and pre-built structures.
The concept of a product (SIPs) and service that would lend itself to log home construction quickly became very interesting to Duane. He soon began to use structural insulated panels along with his log structures in his own projects.
Duane now oversees every aspect of West-Eco SIPs and works with each team member daily to insure that your project is being handled in the best manner possible.
Community commitment is very important to all of us at West-Eco SIPs and we pride ourselves on supporting foundations and associations throughout the communities that we work and live in. Through education programs, we have provided countless hours of instruction and onsite experience to individuals entering the construction industry.
West-Eco SIPs has had the pleasure of educating students from various college and university programs throughout BC. These range from first-year carpentry apprentices and architectural and building science students, to electrical & plumbing apprentices and journeymen carpenters.
We believe that by providing learning opportunities to students of trades and technical programs, those students will take the knowledge and understanding of advanced building systems into our communities to apply their skills locally.

Having worked with you for many years on several projects, I have found your professionalism and candour refreshing and pleasant. From the smallest of purchases of materials through to complete roof systems for several logs and timber homes, I have found delivery and quality both exceed my expectations as well as our clients. I will look forward to working with you in the future and wish you nothing but success.
For most of our projects we get involved with, SIPs are a great fit for the roof structure on timber frames. I love that our frame gets covered quickly so that it does not get exposed to the weather. It is not easy to compare SIP to conventional roof frames apples to apples but from my experiences, SIPs win and show enough value to invest money in. Duane understands what timber framers are dealing with and he can help in big ways when we bring him to the table in the early stages, I see he and his company goes steps beyond to make the project work smoother and we will work more with him.
I purchased a hybrid timber frame cabin c/w SIP walls and roof from Duane and found him to be very knowledgeable, responsive and forthright with my order. He handled it with integrity and provided reliable deliveries to the site. The quality and fit were excellent. Duane was also very pleasant to deal with and I enjoyed meeting him to coordinate the design, production, shipment and erection of the material package he provided. If you are interested in SIP homes, I recommend you to talk to Duane.
