Greyback Construction Ltd.

Penticton’s Greyback Construction Ltd. delivers exceptional builds on time and on budget

Since its inception in 1983, Greyback Construction Ltd. has excelled in commercial, industrial, institutional and residential projects, completing its projects in an efficient and economically viable fashion. Although the bulk of its work has been traditionally focused in the Okanagan, Greyback recently expanded its services—including a specialty in concrete construction—into northern B.C. where work on Imperial Metals Corporation’s new Red Chris Mine in Dease Lake is nearing completion.
Greyback has developed a very strong and effective working relationship with First Nations groups providing not only facilities, but employment opportunities. With the Osoyoos Indian Band, Greyback has, over the last 10 years, built a golf club house, health centre, North America’s first Aboriginal winery (Nk’Mip Cellars) and the Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort and Spa. More recently, Greyback was the main contractor for Senkulmen, the Osoyoos Indian Band’s 112-acre business park.
Greyback is currently joint venturing with the Penticton Indian Band Development Corporation to design, build and market Arrowleaf, Penticton’s premiere residential resort development. A 550-acre complex situated above Skaha Lake, Arrowleaf is opening in March 2014, and will have vineyards, golf courses and homes with exceptional views.
One of the reasons for Greyback’s ongoing success is that its management team includes Canadian Construction Association Gold Seal Certified project managers, estimators and superintendents. In addition, the skills of its employees are constantly being upgraded and improved.
Greyback general manager Matt Kenyon summarizes the family-owned business by stating that whatever needs to be built in the B.C. Interior and northern remote regions, his crews will get the job done. “We specialize in many types of construction formats and handle diverse work out of necessity,” he says. “As for the future, we expect to experience controlled growth. We don’t want to grow by leaps and bounds, we simply want to keep building on our expertise.”
