We just had Kelsey from Pacific Group, & his crew working on our acreage, leveling the land & taking out lots of stumps. We are delighted with the results, they went above & beyond what anyone else would have done for us.
Kelsey keeps in touch with you & wants to make sure you are satisfied. They did a fantastic job & their work ethic is to be admired. The whole crew is polite, friendly & accommodating. We highly recommend Pacific Group Developments, they are the very best in the area. If you wish to confirm this with us, we would be happy to speak with you.

I was very impressed with the quality of landscaping work that the crew from Pacific Group Developments provided - they truly exceeded my expectations! I felt as though I received value for money on my project, they left the site looking better than when they arrived and they finished on time and on budget. I would highly recommend them based on my experience.

After interviewing several contractors to get quotes, we selected Pacific Group Developments for our construction project both because of thier reputation and the quote we recieved was fair with no hidden extras. The job was done on budget and with excellent quality.They showed up every day untill the job was complete with outstanding dedication.

We had Kelsey and his crew from Pacific Group replace our drains and pour concrete ground seal on our crawlspace floor on our 1959 Rancher after our crawlspace flooded the previous winter. Our drains were completely shot. Kelsey explained our options and we put in a double drain system to take both roof water and perimeter water away from our house to municipal pipes. Recently the watermain outside our yard broke. Several homes flooded. Our yard was wet, our house and crawlspace dry. Professionally, Kelsey and his crew are top notch, sincere, curteous, hard working and do what they agree to without skimping. We were very pleased and would not hesitate to recommend them and I can’t say that about a lot of people/companies we’ve used.
Rocky and Pat Brooks in Victoria BC
Just want to add my positive experience with Pacific Group Developments.
They did extensive excavation for me on 3 different construction projects, including replacing perimeter drains, concrete driveway replacements and some miscellaneous excavations. Kelsey took great pains to ensure that I was satisfied with the job and gave good advice when unexpected situations occurred. He was conscious of costs and frequently adjusted his own priorities to facilitate the progress of my projects
I will definitely use Pacific Group for future projects.

We would like to pass on our sincerest appreciation for the crew of Pacific Group Developments. Kelsey and his crew worked diligently to complete a job we hired him to do and do they did, right to our satisfaction. The job involved cutting through pavement, removing Tree Roots and debris while preparing the site for paving. It was discovered after excavating that there were two layers of pavement and the roots of the tree were much larger than first thought. With a trusting handshake, Kelsey kept his word and charged only the estimated cost. We also want to mention Preston’s relentless sweat and hard work in getting the job done.
Thank you sincerely
John and Lola Bruzas in Victoria
We were extremely pleased with the work we had done this year by Pacific Group Developments and Kelsey Wiedner and his crew, and will continue to turn to them for future projects.
They did an exceptionally high-quality job, with constant communication and status report updates every step of the way.
Kelsey's explanations were always clear and easy to follow, and he always wanted to show us exactly what was going on so we were in the loop, which was most helpful and appreciated.
Kelsey's attention to detail is second to none. All aspects of our projects were taken care of professionally and efficiently, from coordinating inspections to creative and clever problem-solving as it arose.
Even when the weather took a nasty turn and we got the snow and sleet that is so uncommon in Victoria, Kelsey and crew kept on happily with the task at hand, continually digging to prep for our drain-tile replacement, new concrete sidewalks and structural renovations. This is probably the most hard-working and thorough team we have ever had the pleasure of working with, and we know from our experience that we can trust that any project is going to be done well and up to our very high standards.
When we checked references before hiring Pacific Group Developments, the common thing we were told was "you can be sure it will be done correctly, and done extremely well", and that is exactly what we got.
We would highly recommend Pacific Group Developments and Kelsey Wiedner to anyone.

We recently had a very successful renovation done by Kelsey / Pacific Group Developments. Through out the renovation Pacific Group Developments worked very closely with us to both help with the design and price out different options, we were given options to match our budgetary needs. This helped guarantee that our needs were met at all points of the renovation.
They kept us up to date with work status and continuous progress. When we had unexpected issues, we were notified right away and given alternatives as to how to resolve them.
On the whole it was a very positive experience and we would not hesitate to recomend Pacific Group Developments to any future or prospective clients.

I have worked with Kelsey and Pacific Group Developments in Victoria,Duncan and Lake Cowichan BC for over 20 years. During that time i have had many construction projects done by them. I have come to expect high quality workmanship, never trying to cut corners, reliability, honesty and crews which are respectful and courteous.
I feel very comfortable recommending Pacific Group Developments to anyone needing construction work, i'm sure you will get a great job.
Brett Heavener, project manager. Belfor Canada.
"We had Kelsey and crew come in to our yard and remove stumps and debris and do some clearing. I had other contractors look at this job but Kelsey had such a positive "can do" attitude, I decided he is the contractor that I wanted to use. Not only did he do an awesome job in my yard, he was excellent at communicating and ensuring we were getting exactly what we wanted from him and his crew. They were super professional, worked very quickly and my yard now looks amazing. If I ever need more landscaping done I would not hesitate to hire Pacific Group Developments again."
Robynne Devine Colwood BC
Pacific Group Developments has worked on numerous projects over the past 6 years for us. These projects have ranged from perimeter drains to framing and drywall work in four different houses. Kelsey has always kept our best interests as the focus of the job while guiding us through these steps. Kelsey and his crew are a very conciensious, polite and hard working group and are a pleasure to have on the job site.
I have found that even the sub trades Kelsey has reccomended have always completed first class work. All of the work that Pacific Group has completed for us over the years has resulted in compliments from our friends and family and I whole heartedly recommend them for any job that needs to be done.
Craig and Jan-Delle Toker, Victoria BC
Kelsey and his crews, worked on numerous construction / renovations and upgrade projects for KFC and TacoBell restaurants over the years. I always found Kelsey to be very professional and often went out of his way to find us the best cost solutions for our very limited budgets. His work ethic combined with the quality of his workmanship instilled confidence in my management team.
I would highly recommend Kelsey on any size project as you will find him very fair, highly skilled and he will deliver and often exceed your expectations.
Rod Vint (Former District Manager-KFC/Taco Bell Restaurants,Vancouver Island)
Kelsey and his team at Pacific Group Developments helped us with the problem of a wet basement. Kelsey did an extraordinary job of explaining how he planned on fixing the problem, detailing every step along the way. We had many, many questions which he answered clearly and patiently each time. As the work progressed Kelsey made sure that we saw and understood each step as it was being done. If I was at work while they were working, Kelsey called each night to make sure I knew exactly what had been done that day. The men were very careful and respectful of our home, making sure that walls were protected and everything was left as clean as before they started. Having the work done on our home was extremely stressful, but I have to say that Kelsey and his men gave us full confidence that the job was being done right. My husband asked Kelsey to do "the best job he could", Kelsey's response was that he "would do the best job that COULD be done!" You don't hear that too often.
If any further work were ever needed on our home Pacific Group Developments would be the only people that I would call.
Thank you again Kelsey.

I called Pacific Group about a buried oil tank as I had their information on file at Century 21 Queenswood Realty Victoria BC where I am an agent. I figured if I was going to refer them to my clients then I should know what I am talking about. The job was a bit tricky removing a buried oil tank underneath 50 years of tree roots and trying to minimize any damage to the existing trees. My husband wanted to ignore the buried tank issue so we tried to do the job as quickly and quietly as possible to reduce the stress on him. Kelsey was understanding and co-operative in that aspect. The work was done super fast and the site was left very tidy. Luckily we had no surprises with a leaky tank and now we can sell the house knowing it is safe for the buyers. I would recommend the crew to anyone needing their expertise.

I have had Pacific Group Developments replace the perimeter drains of my home. I can only praise Kelsey and his crew for their hard work and effort in completing the required job. Kelsey was great to deal with, he was easy to contact if required and took time to explain any problems he came across during the job. Upon completion of the work he made sure everything was reviewed and finished to my liking. I would not hesitate in recommending or using Pacific Group Developments again for any further work I might require around my home. Thanks again Kelsey.
Thanks for the great job done on finishing the concrete floor!
Kelsey we love the Cedar Deck that you built for us ! The design is so unusual. You do Great work ! We get compliments on your works each time we entertain . Thanks again for the Great Work . We highly recommend You for any job. Thanks
Pacific Group Developments. Re: Drain Tiles, Gas Line, Sewer Line
Just a word of thanks and appreciation for the great work you and your crew did at our home. It was a pleasure working with you and I can honestly say I have never met or worked with a contractor as fastidious and thoughtful as you were. Our meeting was somewhat by happenstance but proved a fortuitous encounter and I commend and will recommend your high quality work and honest dealings.
The job site was challenging and required a methodical approach and attention to detail so as to minimize damage to
surrounding landscaping and plant life. Given the depths of the trenching required I was delighted to learn of the results both during and after completion. The job was completed without interruption, on budget and the results were better than I had hoped. You and your crew were thoughtful, courteous and ethical throughout. The work was neat and thanks to the great care that was afforded, my landscaping remained intact.
Thanks for the great job Kelsey!
To whom it may concern:
This is to recommend the work of Pacific Group Developments. They redid my driveway. They came when they said they would and got to work right away. They were very efficient in their work and finished a little quicker than they estimated. The quality of work was excellent. The next time I need similar work done I will call them first.
Roger Trant Victoria BC
"The crew from Pacific Group Developments were contracted to land clearing and level some rough terrain (containing some large stumps) and to build forms and pour a large concrete pad for the future site of a storage building. To my surprise, within 2 days of agreeing on the project, work started. The crew showed up exactly when we agreed, worked hard and got the job done over a period of 4 days. The best aspect was that I was involved through constant consultation. Kelsey and crew offered several creative solutions to some of the layout problems that I had and made several improvements to my original plan. At all points I was consulted and improvements suggested with the result that the job was done to the highest standards with no shortcuts. I appreciated this as the job could have been technically completed with much lower quality. It is thanks to Kelsey that he wanted to do the best job possible to ensure customer satisfaction and to create work that the crew was proud of. Throughout, a friendly and polite crew. The site cleanup was excellent, allowing me to appreciate the completed job without having to do more work!"
Terry Pearson Victoria BC
I called Kelsey @ Pacific Group Developments for a quote to “repair” the perimeter drains at my home. The reality turned into a total replacement. Kelsey walked me through the process in a detailed, patient and clearly understood manner. I was never hesitant to ask questions; therefore, I felt extremely confident starting this stressful project.
All went well until we encountered several feet of granite rock on one side of the house. The original drains stopped on one side of the rock and continued on the opposite side. Several days of tirelessly drilling and broken drill bits etc., Kelsey and his crew were able to remove the rock and complete the job. The crew at Pacific Group Developments were courteous, respectful and worked long arduous hours at my home.
I believe that a true testament of how satisfied you are with a company and the job they do is “would you call them again” and in my case; indeed I did. They just completed my new concrete sidewalk and a pad for the oil tank.
I would highly recommend Kelsey and the crew at Pacific Group Developments to anyone requiring their knowledge and expertise.
Thanks once again Kelsey!

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for your service regarding the removal of my Dad's buried oil tank and contaminated soil which needed to be remediated. This was a very stressful time for me and I appreciate your understanding. You kept me informed at all times by phone and by email. Thanks for explaining all the jargon I didn't understand and thank you for trying to keep the cost down.
I was amazed when I saw the 'finished product'....the garden back to looking good, the carport immaculate and not a bit of soil anywhere. Thanks to you and your team - it made my stressful situation easier to bear... Thanks again.

We have used Pacific Group Developments to participate in our "Eagle Project" to excavate, form and pour two architecual concrete bases for totem pole s carved by "Carey Newman", a First Nations carver . Their quotes were competitive and the work was top notch. Most importantly, the team was friendly, respectful and professional. There’s nothing better than having peace of mind that the job, how ever hard it is, is a job well done.
Marek Tyler, Victoria Native Friendship Centre
“Kelsey and the Pacific Group crew were hired to help with our new cob built house in Sooke BC with many experimental features focused on earth friendly building concepts, high effiecencies and solar / geo thermal components. They did our perimeter drainage system and filled our house foundation with 34 truck loads of road base for our solar / geo thermal heating system and back filled and graded around the house. It was hot, gruelling, back-breaking work. But they did it with laughter and smiles on their faces, and even worked the weekend to get it done. The work was professional, as per the inspector’s expectation, at the agreed price, and ahead of schedule. Kelsey is an honest, dedicated and an innovative contractor, who does the job right. He is a man of many talents with lots of thoughtful contributions."

The Pacific Group Developments team were very professional and timely when it came to removal of a below ground oil tank and soil contamination in my back yard. They were literally at my door within an hour of me contacting them when they heard that I was in the process of selling my house and had discovered a buried oil tank that needed removal. One of their competitors did not even return my phone call until 3 days after Pacific Group Developments had already started the process. Kelsey kept me informed as to how the process worked as the necessary government paperwork was filed through the necessary agencies. Kelsey and his crew expedited this so that from start to finish it was little over a week. I would whole-heartedly recommend Pacific Group Developments for any of your needs.
To be honest, I wish I'd never met Kelsey and Pacific Group Developments inc, but a road accident on the neighbouring street which caused a major break in our water supply meant we did. This situation caused our business to close due to major flooding and then no water during the repairs, therefore the time it took to repair was of the essence. Kelsey and his team worked quickly and cleanly (important for a public location) Kelsey was diligent in working with the authorities and insurance company, furthermore he kept me up to speed with his twice daily call. The job was done well!
As I said I wish I'd not met Pacific Group Developments inc, but given the major problem our company faced, I'm glad I did!

We just had a big job completed by Pacific Group Developments. They installed new perimeter drains around our house, removed a buried oil tank, remediated contaminated soil, replaced water line, sewer lateral and storm lateral, going out from the house to the property line, and replaced sidewalks and driveway with new concrete. Kelsey encouraged us to watch each step of the project; kept us updated daily on what they were doing, and at the end of the day he would let us know what they would be doing the next day. We have never seen such a great group of construction workers. Kelsey, Craig, Preston, Geoff and Mike were such hard workers, always pleasant and only stopping for the occasional short break. Their main focus was getting the best job done for us as quickly as possible. They were all so courteous and a pleasure to have around. We can't say enough positive things about this group of workers and the excellent job that they did. We would not hesitate to highly recommend them to anyone requiring any of their many services. You won't be let down!
Thank you all.

We were one of the lucky ones upon finding a buried oil tank for 2 reasons.
1- There was no oil or leaks associated with the tank.
2- We connected with Pacific Group Developments.
The work was done efficiently, the job was looked at the day i first called them and the work was done in less than 2 weeks.After completion, the yard and fence etc. looked like it had never been touched except a small patch with no grass. Upon completion they brought the completed paper work to our house, not mailed or told stop by the office to pick them up. They had us look the papers over and be sure we understood and were satisfied with the info supplied to us.
The property was part of an estate sale and a real estate transaction depended on the removal of the oil tank with the accompanying permits and proper certification. We highly recommend this company for oil tank removal and due to the quality of their work i am sure they are as competent at all their jobs. We will certainly use them again, but hopefully no more hidden oil tanks.
thank you very much...
Sharron and Joe Gillings Victoria BC.
"We hired Pacific Group Developments to decommission and remove a very large commercial fuel oil tank that was sitting above ground on our property. They did a first-rate job. Kelsey and his company are extremely professional, courteous, hard-working and knowledgeable. We appreciate being kept informed throughout the process. It was a real pleasure to do business with them and we highly recommend Pacific Group Developments.
In addition, they offered to rip out and clear over an acre of broom with their excavator, which was already on our property for the tank removal. This is something we have wanted to deal with since we moved here. With their usual dedication and follow-through, Kelsey even spent a good part of Sunday finishing the job. Most of the broom plants were taller than the excavator so we will be burning them for some time but we are thrilled to have this part of our property cleared of a very invasive plant."
Thanks again, Guys, for your wonderful work!
Stewart and Diana Jack.
During the first serious rainstorm of the year, I discovered I had a major leak in the basement of the house that I had just purchased less than 3 months previously. Kelsey and his Pacific Group Developments Team were able to start work on my place very quickly, alleviating the water intrusion. He kept me informed every step of the way, explaining the process he was taking to repair my house, and why my house flooded in the first place. The amount of work that I witnessed him and his crew do over the next few weeks was nothing short of amazing. Even on the weekends and during some severe weather, there was someone digging, or waterproofing my foundation or removing wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow of heavy clay from my property. All his crew would take time out of their very busy day to walk me through what they were doing and why. I was extremely impressed with the quality of service, the quality of the workmanship and the time taken to explain everything to me. Kelsey and his professional crew were able to make a very trying time easier to deal with.
Thank you Kelsey.
Robert Powell, Victoria BC.
Pacific Group Developments have a crew of hard working people !
I had perimeter drain problems, Kelsey made it very easy for me, he took care of all the little extras that went along with the job, including removing a 80 foot tree 2 feet away from my house and reducing it to chopped fire wood. They arranged for all the appropriate permits and inspections too. I can not thank you and your guys enough for what everyone did. I now have peace of mind when going to bed at night.
Kelsey made sure that I was aware of all the steps that were taken and explained it in fine detail. A progress report was always at hand.
Thank you to all the crew at Pacific Group Developments. A Job Well Done.!!!
Karen Elliot, Victoria, BC.
It is not often I feel compelled to sit down and write a letter of reference for a company, but Pacific Group Developments (Kelsey) has more than earned this. I am not writing this so much as to help them (which I am), but rather to help YOU the home or business owner to know you are choosing a company that will provide an all round quality service with confidence.
I found not only Kelsey but his entire crew to be pleasant, hard working and considerate to the land and the home owner. Kelsey's response to questions/concerns be it verbally or electronically was fast, his price structure of the work done was good with an emphasis on very good value for the money. A couple of times Kelsey made suggestions on how we could do something better, which I agreed, and in hind site I am so very glad I did it was excellent advice. He has a lot of experience, listen to him...
A long story short, I had to have my long driveway widened, there were many aspects to this job from logging, stump removal, trucking and grading to rock breaking and removal. Part of the rock breaking did not go well at all (to no fault of the company), mother nature just did not cooperate at all. There was a point at which I felt that other companies only concerned about the bottom line would have packed up and left, Kelsey and his crew just went at it even harder.
I do not write letters of support often, this one was a pleasure… look no further than Pacific Group Developments for you needs.
Pat Leask, Victoria BC
We had the Pacific Group Developments crew remove a buried oil tank, install partial perimeter drains, clean out the rest of the perimeter drains, remove the old concrete driveway and install a new concrete driveway. They came the same day I called and I received a quote that evening. They started the job right away and finished ahead of schedule to help with our schedule to list our home for sale. All the work was done and the driveway looks wonderful. Kelsey was always willing to give good advice and suggestions, even on other projects that they wern’t hired to do. I would definitely hire this crew for future projects and highly recommend them to anyone looking to have work done.
