Heritage Construction is an established general contracting company servicing the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, as well as various locations in B.C.  Heritage Construction was started in the late 1970’s by Travis Acheson.  A master journeyman carpenter who now has over 40 years experience in all forms of construction.  Our speciality is projects with extensive use of natural products such as wood, rock, trees, etc. used in creative artistic ways.  Our architectural design is not limited to any one form.

Unlike many construction management contractors, we have a hands-on operation in which we handle the carpentry and the management and maintain a high commitment to being on site to ensure that our customers get the quality product they deserve. 

In those 40 years we have: designed our own projects, built houses, renovated homes, done commercial renovations and projects, sub-contracted framing, finishing, and all forms of carpentry skills, wood and tile floors, interior and exterior painting, staircases and railings, concrete pools, custom built millwork/carpentry and furniture, exterior landscaping, such as, decks, all forms of retaining walls, paving stones, etc. and our personal favorite, extensive timber frame joinery. 

We offer in-house designing, letting us design based on our customers wishes and needs and desired budget.  We have an extensive shop for custom woodworking in which we handcraft our timber frame components and many other specialty items. 

Heritage Construction Crew Team:


Travis Acheson

is a lifetime career master journeyman carpenter. He has graduated from B.C. Institute Technology as a red seal carpenter. Travis has always had a love for working with wood and being creative and artistic in his approach to construction. Early in his career he started designing projects and this has grown to Heritage’s ability to do in-house designing for their projects. Travis’ hobbies are extensive, enjoying most anything with a motor. He races motocross, rides a sport bike, and drives a 2003 corvette. He loves to hunt, water ski and snowmobile. He likes to do all of these with his wife and partner of over 31 years, Jeanine.


Jeanine Acheson

is in charge of the books, phoning the different sub-trades, paying the bills and keeping Heritage Construction organized. Her part time work with the company when their family was small has grown into a full time job. When not working she likes to spend time with Travis, rides her own sport bike, goes on the hunting trips and enjoys being out in nature. She is working on two novels and has written numerous short stories and loves to scrapbook. Her ultimate favorite pastime is decorating her whole house for Christmas.Jeanine Acheson
