As a company, we are fortunate not to have faced much in the way of complex health issues, but with the energy that our team puts into everything we do, we believe it’s time we get much more engaged in health and wellness. Perhaps getting a little older makes you realize how short life is and how great an opportunity it is. Simply put, we must do more with it.
In the past we have done our part in contributing resources to major public health initiatives. We are positive that the future will afford us more opportunities to exercise our creativity and breathe new energy into the cities we build.
To date, the Westbank group of companies employs in excess of 1800 people, including Westbank Projects, ICON, Creative Energy, the hotels and restaurants.
