   About Us
Thistle Construction has over 50 years of combined experience in home building and renovations. As General Contractors, we care about your family because they are like our family. As brothers (Donnie and Phil Aitken) began our careers in construction back in the old country, Scotland and we are extremely proud of that fact. We started our families right here in Victoria BC.
    The Difference
As General Contractors, we believe regular communications are key to any project we manage.  Whether we are focused on home building or renovations, the better the connection we have to our clients and their family the more comfortable they will feel during the process. We have a non-standard way of billing. We DO NOT work on cost-plus.  The cost-plus method essentially is a system where whatever you the client decide to spend on the various aspects of the project, the builder will take those costs and add on a percentage. We do not do this.
  Our Projects
Whether you are looking for a new home, an addition, or a wonderful condo or home renovation we have the experience and skills to make your dreams come true. As your General Contractors, the team at Thistle Construction are well suited to be your project managers. Need a Garden Suite or Cottage, we are your specialists!

Client Testimonials
“It is my pleasure to recommend Thistle Construction ltd.

 Donnie and Phil,(Owners of Thistle co.,) were contracted by my company to build two new custom homes in Sidney which were completed in 2019. 

The houses were completed on time and on budget. Build quality is excellent and I was always kept updated on progress throughout the process.”

“Donnie and his Thistle Construction team built our 500sq.ft. coach house. Donnie provided a detailed quote, kept us updated along the way, found alternatives to save us money and met the budget we had to work within. 

His connections in the trade industry were professional and delivered on time. Donnie and his team were easy to work with and we’re thrilled with the end result – just as we had envisioned.”
