West-Eco is a Solely Owned Canadian Company.
Sole Owner, Duane Svendson, brings many years of hands on experience working within the Building Industry.
Duane has knowledge of all facets of the Design, Construction and the Manufacturing process of the Panelized Building System industry and has worked with Developers, Architects and General Contractors throughout Canada, the U.S. and around the world to successfully complete many 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. Log homes are a prime example of a pre-built system.
The concept of a product (SIPS) and service that would lend itself to his log home construction quickly became very interesting to Duane. He soon began to use Structural Insulated Panels along with his Log Structures for the Gables, Dormers and Roof Systems and for infill panels for his Log Post & Beam Structures.
As time went on, SIPs became mainstream and so did Panelized Building Systems.
Duane oversees every aspect of West-Eco Panelized Building Systems and can be contacted directly at any time if you have even the simplest of questions.
Environmental mission and strategy (ESG)
Stronger: SIPs are significantly stronger than dimensional stick frame construction. The product strength offers many benefits, including a roof system that eliminates the need for a truss system (imagine reducing your framing schedule by removing the labor and installation time for truss construction!).
Straighter: Large, strong panels arrive to your job-site pre-fabricated as per your floor plans, saving days and possibly weeks of installation time. These panels are engineered and predictable, unlike stick frame construction. These consistent panels enable you to build straight roofs, walls and floors.
Greener: Everyone wants to be environmentally responsible, but few lumber products can truly say they are good for the environment. Made from fast growing trees and 100% recyclable EPS foam SIPs from WEST-ECO create structures that regularly have up to 60% reduction in utility bills. And this is just a glimpse of all the ways our SIPs are greener than other framing options.
