Craig Rickards BSc (Hons)

Operations Manager

Craig brings a wealth of experience to Western Medical with over 20 years in the construction industry. Craig began his career many years ago as a mason in the United Kingdom.
He combined this valuable experience with his formal education gaining a diploma in Civil Engineering along with a diploma in Building Studies. He then obtained a BSc (Hons) in Building Pathology (Architectural Designation). Craig’s contribution to the outstanding customer relationships here in British Columbia and to the overall success of Western Medical’s exemplary record within the healthcare construction industry, speaks for itself.
