Wesbild Community Spirit Award Winner

On February 1, Wesbild was honoured with the Community Spirit Award at the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award Gala.

According to the Tri-Cities Chamber, the Community Spirit Award acknowledges both businesses and individuals that have tirelessly supported Tri-Cities based organizations and not-for-profits. They are committed to corporate social responsibility and dedicated to making the Tri-Cities a better place to live, work, and play.

This award is a recognition of Wesbild’s long term commitment to corporate citizenship. Wesbild has always believed in giving to the wider Tri-Cities community as evidenced by our long standing relationship with Share Family & Community Services and our Wesbild LIFT Scholarship Program at CABE Secondary (plus the many other groups we partner with and donate to).  Our goal is to truly find a way to help individuals have better lives.

Statement from Wesbild on Weather Event at Burke Mountain Residential Development

February 1, 2020 (Coquitlam, BC) – Wesbild is responding to an incident at the Foothills at Burke Mountain neighbourhood, resulting from extreme rainfall overnight. Flooding has affected a small number of homes adjacent to a construction site. No injuries have been reported.

The company dispatched crews early this morning and is working closely with the City of Coquitlam in its clean up and recovery efforts.

Wesbild’s focus at this time is to repair the damage to the site that we understand was caused by excess water from a blocked storm water drain. Debris from the extreme rainfall and wind made its way into the drain which likely caused the problem.

The safety and wellbeing of Burke Mountain residents is the company’s top priority, and crews will remain on site throughout the day.

Wesbild Contributes $5-Million to Future Burke Mountain Sports Field

Wesbild is proud to announce that we have made a contribution of $5 Million towards the future construction of a lit artificial turf field at the future Secondary/Middle School site on Burke Mountain.

In addition to the field, we have also committed to donating and servicing the land for the six-acre Marigold Elementary School site in the Partington Creek neighbourhood.

The future joint middle/secondary school and park site is viewed as a top priority by the City of Coquitlam and School District No. 43, given the continuing growth in the Burke Mountain area. The Secondary School is in the planning stages, and will feature innovative green technology.

The park component will be funded through Wesbild’s $5 Million contribution, plus an additional $3.8 Million from development revenues through the City of Coquitlam’s Development Cost Charges paid by developers.

Rain Gardens at The Foothills

Spring has arrived at The Foothills, and while we have been spoiled with sunshine and warm weather, the rain has started (and will likely stick around a while!).

Did you know that Burke Mountain has some beautiful Rain Gardens landscaped into its parks and open spaces?

While you may have seen a Rain Garden in your neighbourhood, you may not quite know what their purpose is.

Not only do Rain Gardens look beautiful, they play an important role in keeping our creeks and streams clean. Rain Gardens are carefully chosen plants and rocks that help filter sediment through rain and runoff. They prevent excess amounts of this sediment and pollutants to enter our natural waterways.

Plants in Rain Gardens are chosen because of their ability to thrive in moist and flooded areas.

Rain Gardens are built in low-lying areas where they collect water as it runs off through a neighbourhood. As water leaves the Garden, it enters a pipe that leads to a drain system which then leads to a nearby creek.

Check out the large Rain Garden at Galloway Park!
