Our History and Experience

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

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.
