Kays has been around the block a time or two. (And built a bunch of them to boot.)

The company has planned and constructed vital sewer and water infrastructure for municipalities and resorts, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in the resource and tech sectors, built businesses, highways and homes too, for those in low income and luxury markets alike.

In complete compliance with all local, provincial, environmental and safety agencies we’ve worked closely with sub-contractors, engineers and project stakeholders all across the West Kootenay.

Experience has shown us that transparent client engagement, the provision of quick solutions, and speedy response to our clients’ and partners’ needs are the keys to shared success.

Who we are

Meet the Team

The West Kootenay is a special place in the world that attracts people who respect a healthy work/play lifestyle. That’s why the entire team at Kays Contracting are encouraged to enjoy all this region has to offer, from its outdoor recreation to its cultural uniqueness. Sure, we’re all professionals who work hard. But we also know when to take off the steel-toes and relax, whether it’s by mountain biking, skiing, or just lounging in the backyard with a cold one.


Want To Join A Great Crew?Like working hard? So do we.

At Kays Contracting, respect for the individual and personal accountability are our common goals. These provide the foundation for the quality, competency and trust that define the company’s character and reputation with our partners and clients.

Operating from our five-acre, creekside home base and equipment yard just outside Nelson, Kays owners Matt Hanlon and Jeff Harker want to provide competitive wages, stable job opportunities for good people looking for a truly remarkable lifestyle, in a world-class place to live.

The team is inclusive, continuously building skill sets and experience, and always ready for a new challenge. Our standards for quality and safety are high.
