David & Lael McKeown

David’s father founded Omineca Building Supplies in Terrace in the 1950’s, this provided a foundation of knowledge for David in the construction industry.

In 1972, Progressive Ventures was started.

David began with housing, then soon moved into commercial real estate development, all while taking on a variety of construction projects as a general contractor.

Lael joined David in 1974 and soon became an active partner in the company. Since then, Lael has been dynamic pillar in community development as a director of the Chamber of Commerce, Terrace Economic Development Authority, K.T. Industrial Development Society and the Terrace-Kitimat Airport Society.

Both David and Lael are retired now but they remain strong supporters of the community of Terrace and the Northwest, recognizing that this is an area of great opportunity and lifestyle.

David, Lael, and Progressive Ventures have been an integral part of the region’s growth and development for decades.
