Current Professional Team

Family values are at the core of Wilco Construction. When the two brothers married the two sisters, and started a business building custom houses, a cohesive supportive environment naturally emerged. It is a culture that permeates the company.

The entire Wilco Team shares a common vision — to build the best possible home for their clients, and have some fun along the way!

Ian and Trevor Wilson

Ian and Trevor Wilson, Owners

After emigrating to Canada, Brothers Ian & Trevor continued to expand on the construction experience they gained in the UK. For the past 30 years, they have been building quality homes in BC, primarily on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.
Through constant professional upgrading, such as seminars sponsored by the Homeowner Protection Office , Built Green course certification and membership in the Canadian Home Builders Association they stay on top of changes to the industry and upgrades to Building Codes. Trevor served two years on the CHBA board of directors.
Ian & Trevor believe strongly in the work hard, play hard philosophy. Although very different personalities, they do share many of the same pursuits outside of the office, among them sailing, motorbikes and travel. Their journeys have taken them sailing around the Caribbean and trekking across the world on a motorcycle.
Another obsession for both is home renovation. Clients benefit from the personal experience these two principals bring to their business as one or the other is almost always in the throes of a home improvement.
