Our Story

tilstra family banner2

Building is in our roots. Three sons raised on construction sites coupled with their father in over 40 years of construction experience as a guiding principle.

It is simple to witness the difference quality construction makes to a project. To us, Wesmont Family means dedication, loyalty, and quality. 

We develop and build beautiful residential and commercial properties in British Columbia. Each property is built with precision and a keen eye to succeed. This helps drive us to provide the highest quality. Our experience has shown that complete dedication to our client’s satisfaction is paramount to a project’s success.

Leaning into our potential, we combined our history of construction and unique talent to give our customers the most rewarding homes. Three brothers and a father each with unique skill collaborated to develop and build thousands of single family and multi-family residential communities and construct commercial buildings. 

Professional, trustworthy, and value-oriented is who we are and how we build.
