Crew & Community

LWE is, at heart, a dynamic group of people who love to live and work in the East Kootenay. Our abilities, experience and problem-solving skills complement each other; together we are an excellent design-build-deliver team.

Among us you’ll find an in-house draftsperson, journeyman and apprentice carpenters, cabinet makers, custom metal workers, labourers, project managers, office administrators and owners. Depending on the client and project, our crew often includes trusted partners, architects, designers, and engineers, as well as plumbers, electricians, plasterers, painters, landscapers and stone masons.

One thing we all have in common – besides our commitment to work – is our commitment to community. Here are some of our recent and ongoing initiatives:


Elk Valley Relay for Life: While we often enter a company team, the most Relay fun we’ve had was building a “crooked dog house” for a fundraising raffle.


Women’s Resource Centre: This organization delivers valuable services to the women of Fernie, Sparwood, Elkford and the South Country. When they needed a new space, we provided design and technical advice, helped with the tendering process and secured a disability access grant.


ShelterBox: When a member of our crew decided to volunteer to help people affected by the typhoon in the Philippines, we raised and matched funds to support his aid effort.


Fernie Alpine Ski Team (FAST): We are a corporate sponsor plus we actively fund raise for this team of quick kids.


Fernie Dirt Jump Park: Continuing the theme of supporting opportunities for kids to play outside, we provide machinery, materials and our time to this free, much-loved park.
