At SitkaWest, we build trust, and we build buildings. We pride ourselves on the client relationships we’ve fostered over the years. They’ve built our reputation and validated our company values of integrity and transparency. We’ve managed everything from multi-million dollar civic projects like city hall renovations, school construction and seismic upgrades to commercial and multi-family residential projects. Our success is the direct result of the trust and respect we bring to each undertaking – to our clients, team members and contractors/sub-trades alike.

We plan and manage all aspects of a project, including site planning, building design, zoning, coordination of consultants and city officials, development and building permits, budgets, schedules, contract administration, site development, construction and post-construction. Our broad and deep understanding of development and construction management has helped us establish an impressive track record. We believe our hands-on involvement and effective project management approach are critical to achieving high productivity and performance on-site and ensuring SitkaWest’s project success.

About SitkaWest

Founded in 2018, SitkaWest is privately owned by Jamie Kossowan, he boasts 27 years of construction experience and extensive knowledge of BC’s development and construction industry. Starting as a framing and concrete forming construction company, SitkaWest has since expanded its offerings to include General Contracting, Construction Management and design-build.

This expansion is a testament to our commitment to growth and innovation. We believe in continuous improvement. We educate ourselves on current building practices and construction technologies, benefiting our clients with the latest advances and efficiencies. In addition, we are an agile organization that can contract and expand to meet the particular demands of any project regardless of size. No project is too small or too complicated for us to assume.

We Work Together With Core Values

Tied to building trust, every action we take as individuals must be completed with the utmost integrity. We make difficult decisions daily, sometimes not to our business benefit. From the carpenters, to accounting department, to president, the future of our business depends on this.

Why do we do what we do? We always ask why we chose construction, and the common denominator is because we all have a shared passion for what we do. We CARE. But past that, what else drives those within our business? We ask why are we doing what we are doing, in nearly every action. We take the time to perform our duties with intention, and our leadership demonstrates this every single day.

We can tell you what we are capable of, but we would rather show you. Understandably, reservations can be had, so we let our references speak for our work and let our demonstrable success speak for itself.
