We go waaaay back…

Founded by Ken Olson in 1974, Olson Construction has established a solid reputation as an honest, hard-working and high quality construction company. We have evolved to become the growing full-service builder that we are today. In the last 40 years we have built up our expertise and abilities on hundreds of projects.

From the start Ken instilled an unwavering commitment to work ethic, attention to detail & quality, integrity and building strong client relationships – building better. Ken retired in 2009, but these core values continue to underscore all we do at Olson Construction.

From our management team to our field staff, Olson Construction has the knowledge, skill and resources necessary to deliver uncompromising value and quality in every project we undertake.

Olson Construction is now a regional company serving the East Kootenay including Golden, Field, Revelstoke, Invermere, Cranbrook, Fernie, Sparwood and Elkford as well as Lake Louise and Banff in Alberta.

Building better, since 1974

“I have worked with Olson Construction acting as Construction Managers on several recent Institutional projects spanning several years and have found the company to be a pleasure to work with. They have provided accurate and timely reporting and have proven themselves to be creative problem solvers when issues of either schedule or budget have required adaptation. They are attentive to detail, well organized with strong communication skills and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for projects, be they straight forward or complex.”
