    Modest Beginnings

Scott Builders was formed in 1971 and remained a relatively small regional general contractor, specializing in the sale and erection of Butler Engineered Building Systems.   In 1978 it began to broaden its service options into Design | Build work.  The company remained a relatively small, regional builder until Ralph Ward took over in 1986.

Within 3 years the company had expanded by adding full service offices in both Calgary and Edmonton.  Their ability to design and construct larger projects, the growth of their client base resulting in considerable repeat business and a companywide DNA of putting their people and customers ‘first’, took hold. 

At the time, I saw Scott as a competent Design | Build contractor operating primarily in the light industrial/commercial markets in Central Alberta with a solid reputation. They were truly a negotiating contractor that took very good care of its customers and its people.
– R. Ward

The growth from a $5 million local construction firm in 1986 to a $251.3 million firm in 2014 is significant and has been matched by the addition of an outstanding group of people at every level.

Several of our key people started at the job site and ultimately became key members of our management team. We gave them an opportunity to grow and prosper and as employees and owners they continue to contribute significantly to our success.

We value our clients, co-workers and industry partners
