History of Weiland Construction

Our business philosophy is you dream it, we build it. We are a full spectrum Construction Company that has been building dreams in Nelson, B.C. and the Kootenays since 1974. Our beautiful homes are located in the pristine valley between the Selkirk and Purcell Mountain ranges.

Based in Nelson BC, Weiland Construction is managed and run by Gordon and Deborah Weiland.

Whether creating the perfect urban bungalow or a remote waterfront haven, we will build your bold modern or quiet luxury dwelling anywhere you would be proud to call home.

Our portfolio showcases some of our recently constructed homes.

After more than 35 years in business, we are proud to still depend on word-of- mouth advertising, as customer satisfaction is truly the best marketing tool. Our greatest reward is your satisfaction and trust.

We are excited to present and showcase the diverse styles and quality craftsmanship of our beautiful custom homes with the launch of our new website for the 2000s.

Weiland Construction offers full collaboration with each of our clients; we will educate and communicate the building process every step of the way. It is our pleasure to build on site and be directly involved with the projects or to build with clients who are remote and choose to entrust the entire building process to us.

We evaluate the needs of each of our clients and assess all building requirements as they fall under provincial/federal building legislation (Regional District of Central Kootenay and City of Nelson; Province of BC building codes; Home warranty programs; Travelers Guarantee warranty programs; Workers Compensation Board of BC).

Our goal is to exceed our clients’ expectations by delivering products that are of maximum quality, exceeding BC building codes.

Being a small volume builder has allowed us to become fully involved in every project we pursue. We are wholly dedicated to each project, committed to excellence and consistent quality workmanship.

Gordon and Deborah Weiland:

Owner/operators Gordon and DeborahWeiland bring the true essence of old world pride and quality workmanship to Weiland Construction. Gordon’s hands- on approach to management and construction service is the true foundation of Weiland Construction and has earned him a very respected name in the Nelson community.

Like her husband, Deborah has longstanding roots in the Kootenay community. She co-manages the full range of business operations but brings a special and unique passion for design and colour to all projects. Deborah will work directly with clients or will collaborate with a client’s personal designer at every step of the process.

Mentored by his father, Joe, Gordon developed his carpentry skills from a very young age. Gordon successfully created his own second generation construction company in 1994, bringing to the company the diversity that is required for a small community offering full spectrum building to residential and commercial clients.

Since its inception, Weiland Construction’s portfolio and experience has been vast: from building hydroelectric micro dams, fire halls, commercial garages and concrete commercial buildings to building custom dream homes, barns and custom designed / stamped concrete driveways.

References for our portfolio include the Regional District of Central Kootenay, BC Hydro and several local businesses and personal clients.

Where it all began: Joe Weiland Construction:

In the late ‘60s Joe Weiland relocated from his native Germany to Ontario, Canada. With his extensive training and German apprenticeship, Joe worked in the Ontario highrise commercial building industry. One summer, while relocating to the Okanagan, Joe drove with his young family through the Kootenays. What was meant to be a short stopover in Nelson, however, became a lifelong stay. Within days Joe had found a house for his family in Balfour, BC and the Kootenays soon became their new home.

Joe put his skills to work and soon founded his business specializing in concrete projects and general contracting for custom home building.

Joe Weiland Construction’s philosophy since its inception in 1974 has been: word of mouth is the best and only advertising a solid high quality company will ever require.

At Weiland Construction today, we keep Joe’s word.
