Featured Projects

Anyone can dig a hole. But it takes a special company to successfully complete your entire excavation project on time, on budget and all while providing exceptional, personalized service. At Kays Contracting, we are experts in excavation and have trusted subcontractors to take care of all your site elements from paving to electrical.

Since launching in 2006, our company has grown exponentially to take on your largest projects. We’ve helped build infrastructure for full subdivisions and housing developments, worked with the province’s biggest contractors to repair roadways and parking lots, and have prepped and perfected innumerable sites throughout the West Kootenay region of British Columbia. Whether your project requires road construction and paving, the installation of water, power, and sewer systems, or foundation and retaining wall work, we have the equipment, staff and experience to get it done right. The first time.

Below are some of the projects we’ve worked on in the past few years. They’ll give you a sense of the scope of our offerings but by no means are they representative of all that we offer. Whatever your project may be, we’re happy to speak with you about it and let you know if we have what it takes to get it done. Aside from skill, honesty is something we pride ourselves in and we’ll never take on more than we can handle. Contact us today with any questions or to discuss your project.
