OUR HISTORY

Formwest Contractors Ltd. is a General Contractor and Construction Management Team founded by (father and sons) Christian, Marc and Oliver Costo in January 2019.

The company was born from demand to provide services to our pre-existing client base from the parent company Showcase Interiors Ltd. which was founded in 2005 in Vancouver.

We are 4th and 5th generation builders. The Costo family’s involvement in Canadian Construction includes notable projects from paving the Alaska Highway, helping to build The Sun Life Building in Montreal and a Church that is now a Registered National Historic Site of Canada.

The men in our family were tall crane operators, road builders, stone masons and as building supply wholesalers contracted with CNR and CPR to supply all crates and pallets for both companies for over 75 years.

We look on the past and honour it, look forward to the future with a keen eye and take great pride in our work and in the level of service we provide.
