Why Every Construction Company Cannot Do Projects on Remote Islands

April 2023 Blog

There’s nothing better than living on a remote island; it’s peaceful, serene and surrounded by nature, but when it comes to building or repairing a property or doing any sort of contracting, there’s a limited number of companies that will actually be able to proceed with the job.

While it may seem like a lucrative opportunity, there needs to be a certain expertise and capacity to handle a project on a remote island.

Here are some reasons why we’re the go-to remote island solution for so many:


Due to the lack of infrastructure on a remote island, contractors need to bring their own equipment and personnel, and transport material economically, which can not only increase time but also cost for that company. 

In most cases, there’s too much risk associated for them. If any equipment gets damaged on the way, it can affect the whole timeline of the project.

The good news is we’ve been doing remote work for so long that we’re always prepared and equipped to take on any project.


This is a big one. There are specific environmental regulations you need to follow, and there are some islands/areas that require certain permits and approvals before you start working.

Some of these permits and approvals can take a long time, and with no guarantee of getting approved, some companies would rather use that waiting period to do other projects.

Being very experienced in this field, our team will give you all the information you need to know prior to any work being done.


The project has to be “worth it” for the company, and with limited resources, that profit margin can always be in doubt. It is important to them to have access to resources at a reasonable cost; otherwise, they will pass on the opportunity more than likely.

Every project is worth it for us because, at the end of the day, it’s about making sure our clients have 100% satisfaction.


We love offshore/remote island work and have successfully completed new build projects and renovation projects all over Vancouver Island and the surrounding coast.

With 40+ years of experience, along with our knowledge of offshore/remote living, you can count on us to get the job done right the first time, no matter the conditions!


From wearing the proper workwear to making sure we have the necessary license(s) and insurance policies for the project, the proper training for our workers, and up-to-date equipment to prevent accidents, safety to us is paramount to any remote build or renovation we do.

So there you have it, remote island work; while they are a unique opportunity and challenge, they require specialized expertise and resources that not all construction companies may have. But that doesn’t apply to us. We have everything you need to make your remote island project a success, as we’ve been doing it for years.

Remote work is definitely not an easy task, but our team is always up for the challenge. Get in touch today for a quote!
