ETRO Construction sets sail for Vancouver Island

The contractor plans to expand their services by partnering with Victoria-based Durwest Construction Management

Burnaby-based ETRO Construction is embarking on a long-term partnership on Vancouver Island through a strategic joint venture alliance with Victoria-based Durwest Construction Management. This alliance aims to leverage the strengths of both firms to offer enhanced construction services on the island.

ETRO Construction views this partnership as a natural fit due to shared values and construction approaches, in addition to a true focus on building impact in their communities.

Mike Maierle, President of ETRO, highlighted the synergy between the two companies, explaining that his team’s innovative approach to construction coupled with Durwest’s decades of experience and established relationships in the region will provide significant value to their clients.

The joint venture will focus on mixed-use master-planned communities and institutional work. Additionally, ETRO plans to offer its Revive brand, targeting retrofits, heritage upgrades, building rehabilitations and more. 

“We’re excited about working with a great company who have 40 years of history, deep roots and a fantastic reputation,” said Maierle. 

Zoe Mitchell, President of Durwest, said she was excited to work with an innovative and technologically sophisticated builder like ETRO as opportunities in the region grow. 

“There is so much development of affordable housing projects and ancillary developments like schools, hospitals and transportation infrastructure. There is an influx of population growth because it’s a great place to live,” said Mitchell. “We are set up for the future and it looks bright here.”

Founded in 2015, ETRO Construction is one of Vancouver’s fastest growing construction management and general contracting firms. Built on a foundation of quality and rooted in a commitment to creating exceptional projects and experiences, we add value to lives and communities through our people, our expertise, and our passion for doing things differently.
