“Having been with Bluewater for the past two years, I can attest to the opportunities for personal and professional development this company provides. It is a fast-paced environment that still maintains a focus on product quality and high-calibre interpersonal relationships between clients and employees. The projects are unique and I’ve received an exceptional amount of support to further my skills, including sponsorship in my carpentry apprenticeship and Passive House training. I’ve particularly appreciated Mike’s effort in creating a distinct company culture that fits the active lifestyle in the Sea to Sky. It is clear that Mike sees his team as a worthwhile investment, and goes above and beyond to provide regular staff events like mountain bike rides, river rafting, and concerts that bring the team together and creates an environment that employees are excited to invest in as well.”
