How We Help - Design

The design phase of a building project is fun. You share your dreams. We exchange ideas. Creative juices flow.

It is also critically important. The decisions you make at this stage will, in many ways, determine the project’s success. You’ll make those decisions with the support of your LWE project manager; you'll benefit from LWE's in-house draftsperson and our ability to generate 3D models of your ideas. You can also bring or request a design consultant or architect.

LWE will:


  • bring our construction expertise to the table;
  • provide additional creative perspective;
  • highlight budget implications; and
  • ensure you consider choices that will serve you well over time.

We welcome your designs. We’ll gladly review them with you to ensure they are practical. For projects with an exterior component, we’ll pay particular attention to how well the design accommodates snow load, freeze-thaw cycles, and the extreme temperature swings we experience here in the East Kootenays.


Once the conceptual design is finalized, we’ll move onto the next phase of your project, the plan.
