“I have enjoyed working with Lakewood Estates Ltd. for the past five years on land development and infrastructure projects. The workmanship is excellent and I have found them to be efficient, energetic, and reliable. Mike Weidenfeld is a great manager and leader who can plan and execute projects with ease and supervise his crew with clear directions. The understanding on the construction standards, ability to schedule activities are only surpassed by, without exceptions, maintaining a safe and tidy job site throughout the projects. It is evident that Lakewood Estates Ltd takes pride in their work.”

“Working together with Westhills Land Corporation and Lakewood to design/install the Parkdale Creek stream crossing was extremely satisfying. The Westhills team tackled our design hurdles in an organized and methodical way, keeping the goals of the Parkdale development firmly in mind. The Lakewood team was professional and the installation of the Armtec structure was completed on schedule without sacrificing quality or safety.”
- Brock Nesbit, AScT, armtec
"This stable, enduring Deltalok installation at Westhills' Parkdale Creek Crossing is an outstanding example - executed to a very high standard - entirely by Lakewood Estates.....walls with a batter ranging from 2:1 to 4:1, heights exceeding 10m, and an overall length of more than 100m.....this is a laser-straight application of the Deltalok ecological engineering system - with less than 2cm differnce in elevation from end to end."
- Gary McCartie, System Representative - Island Region, Deltalok
"I've worked with Lakewood on environmental matters for several years now. I feel we have worked well together to help minimize the impact of their development activities. They respond to environmental concerns with timeliness and thoroughness. They are great people to work with."
- Brian Wilkes, SMES, R.P.Bio, Brian Wilkes and Associates Ltd
"Westhills are surely first class builders as witnessed during the installation of our Deltalok Retaining Wall system at their Parkdale Creek crossing. We were extremely impressed by their workmanship and encouraged that they went the extra mile to seek out a Green solution over more obvious road building options. In addition to an aesthetically pleasing result, the fact that they reduced their GHG (Greenhouse Gas) impact by more than 225 tons in selecting our system shows their commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability goes beyond lip service and is actively in practice at their development. We look forward to working with the Westhills Team again."
- Mike Callewaert, President, Trexiana Wholesale and Distribution Ltd.
