A Name Built on Dependability

Starting with a lone Bobcat and a contract in 1993, Jakes Construction has grown into a dependable builder of vital transportation infrastructure in BC.

Where Quality Meets Capability

To us, rolling up our sleeves is more than just a figure of speech. It’s how we’ve tackled every job from day one–getting right down to business to deliver quality results, whatever it takes. You could say that we’re a chip off the old block because, like Jake himself, we’re not afraid of a little old-fashioned hard work to get the job done right.
