Our story is one of succession. The hard work and dedication of our team over the last 40 years will assure the continued growth and prosperity of Scott Builders for future generations.

Our Story

Today over 70% of Scott’s business is repeat


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


Then and Now


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. R. Ward


Customers – The Life Blood – Building Relationships


During the 90’s Scott Builders designed and constructed over twenty two Revy Home and Garden retail stores, eighteen of them were mega stores in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario.


The success of the Revy program was exemplary and clearly spoke to Scott’s capabilities to manage the Design and construction of large multi-site programs, helping to promote relationships with NEW major buyers of construction.  Today over 70% of Scott’s business is repeat.


What Our Clients Say

Scott Builders went beyond our expectations and we would not hesitate to have Scott Builders work with us on any future construction projects and we do highly recommend them to others. The company's integrity from all the members of its team and its ability to deliver is what makes Scott Builders our first choice in design build construction.
