Lead Carpenter

150 Mile House, BC

We are a general contractor for residential and commercial high-performance builds focused on sustainable building, timber frame structures, and pre-fabricated wall systems. We strive to foster a unique work environment, where team collaboration is strongly promoted. Our approach to environmental, social, and community-based economic sustainability reflects and supports the lifestyles and aspirations of our clients and our team members.



We are looking to hire full-time, year-round carpenters to work on full builds in the 100 Mile House area, to remote locations and out of our shop in 150 Mile House. Note, this is not a rotational/fly-in/out type job, we are looking for full-time team members who live in (or move to) the communities that we build in.

Lead positions manage a small and mostly independent crew, with a provided truck and fully stocked tool trailer. Leads mostly work on-site with some opportunity to work in the 150 Mile House shop on prefabrication from time to time.

We look for those with a keenness to learn, solid work ethic, an eye for detail, and desire to sustainably build our communities.

As a member of ZTF, you will work alongside professional designers and skilled craftspeople, reflecting our core values, while serving our clients.
