Land Development

Elmworth doesn’t just build excellent homes – we develop communities.

We use long term planning and innovative solutions to create spaces that address a community’s present and future needs. Our commitment to designs that balance the residential, commercial and recreational requirements of an area together with environmental stewardship, can be seen in Elmworth’s numerous developments around the Cowichan Valley.

Land development can be a complex process, but with Elmworth it doesn’t need to be. We are experienced with each phase of the development process and the specialized requirements of Vancouver Island municipalities. From raw land to thriving community, Elmworth can expertly navigate your project through each stage of the process.

  • “I have worked as a project engineer for Bruce on a multitude of projects on south Vancouver Island, over the course of many years. Bruce has a keen sense of a project’s potential and it is his in-depth knowledge of municipal bylaws; his good rapport with municipal staff that guide project development; and understanding the local development climate, that have contributed to Bruce’s success. Bruce makes pragmatic decisions that always need to be made throughout the ever-changing dynamics of a project. On top of it all: he is a great guy to work with!”

  • “I wanted to write a letter that expressed how amazing it was working with Bruce Muir and the rest of the Elmworth team. I came to Bruce with a dream to build a one of a kind Integrative Health and Wellness Centre here in the Cowichan Valley. Not only did he help me achieve this dream, but it was done with such Professionalism and Craftsmanship that is hard to find nowadays. I can only humbly say, thank-you. You were there from start to finish, I now cherish the friendships we have made during this project and look forward to working together in the future.”

  • “Thank you, Elmworth Construction for building me the equestrian centre of my dreams. You built so much more than I could have ever imagined! I appreciated the collaborative approach that the Elmworth Construction team used to refine the plans as the project unfolded. I love walking into my barn every morning, seeing what we created! I would not hesitate to recommend Elmworth Construction to others and we will most certainly use Elmworth for all our future projects.”

  • “When we planned to expand our storage facility here at Thermoproof, we worked with Mike Swanston and the rest of the Elmworth team. Even though they had to work around our busy production schedule, they were able to facilitate our plant expansion on time as promised and deliver a quality product. We will not hesitate to use Elmworth Construction for future projects. Thank you Elmworth.”

  • “I would like to express my gratitude to Elmworth Construction and their crew for doing a great job on building our physiotherapy clinic. Elmworth built the shell and completed the tenant improvements in a timely matter, and went above and beyond to deal with some building inspection issues in order to get us up and running on our scheduled date. The crew was open to listening and changing ideas right up until the last minute. They are very professional, offer a great quality, and are easy to deal with. I will use Elmworth again in the future and I would recommend them to anyone building a home or commercial space.”
