Westbow Construction

Serving Others Since 1977

Dick Westeringh established Westbow Construction in 1977 in Chilliwack, British Columbia. Dick’s team is not only a group of quality home builders but they are a team of caring professionals. That’s why it’s part of Westbow’s vision to give back to people less fortunate then ourselves. So what is the Westbow vision for giving back?

Our Vision

Westbow Construction Group Ltd. has been partnering with Hungry for Life to touch the lives of the people of Haiti, the most impoverished nation in the Western Hemisphere.

Our team has also partnered with Haiti Free School Project and is donating $500 from homes sold to the project. Every $500 sponsors a child’s education for a year! That means everytime you partner with us your helping build schools and educate underprivileged kids in Haiti. We’d just like to say thank you for supporting our Team’s Vision for Giving Back.
