It all started with a passion for craftsmanship and tangible results

After gaining strong experience in the roots of construction craftsmanship in the Kootenays and Northern BC, Matt and his wife Ashley, packed up and moved to the Okanagan Valley. Combining both of their last names to create the business name, Brentwell Construction began. In the beginning, Brentwell was built on the basis of foundation and framing, and through strategic planning and growth, now offers a combination of commercial contracting and general residential contracting services with a full service team.

Building Our Community

As a company and as employees, the team at Brentwell believes being involved and supporting our community is important. We are proud to call the Okanagan home, raise our families here, and be involved with the following organizations.
