Our History

Our History

Westland was founded in 1979 with the goal to establish a construction business big enough to service clients' requirements, yet personal enough to understand clients' needs. Our success is directly related to our team's expertise and the values that we embrace. These values are the foundation of our work and the foundation of our customer relationships. Planning does not build buildings -- people do!
