Introducing North Cowichan’s New Chief Building Inspector

(North Cowichan, BC) – North Cowichan is pleased to introduce Lane Killick as the new Chief Building Inspector. The Chief Building Inspector role was recently re-established in the Development and Engineering Services Division to provide leadership and oversight for North Cowichan’s three building inspectors. The Building Department has been increasingly busy over the last year, responding to a positive construction market that has seen the value of construction starts increase from $47 million in 2017 to $67 million in 2018.

“We are so pleased to have Mr. Killick step into this much-needed role at the Municipality,” says Chief Administrative Officer, Ted Swabey. “Our small Building Department has been working tirelessly to keep up with volume and demand as new housing starts more than doubled from 2017 to 2018. Having a Chief Building Inspector leading this team will help us deliver excellent service to our growing community.”

Mr. Killick began his career at North Cowichan in 2011 as a Building and Plumbing Inspector. Also a Red Seal certified Journeyman Carpenter, he brings to his new role over 18 years of experience working in local government. Currently, Mr. Killick is a Registered Building Official and certified Level 1 and 2 Plumbing Inspector with a Certificate in Local Government Administration.
