For more than a century, Aecon and our predecessor companies have helped to build many of Canada's most famous landmarks – from the CN Tower and St. Lawrence Seaway, to the Vancouver Sky Train and Halifax Shipyards. In addition to these great landmarks, we've also helped to build hundreds of factories, roads, sewers, theatres, book stores, power plants, arts centres, mine sites, offices, hotels and gas distribution networks – the smaller, but no less important projects that help to make Canada a great place to live.
Building Things that Matter
At Aecon, we work hard to be the first company people go to for building things that matter. In every department and division, our culture is firmly rooted in our core values – Safety first, Trust and Candour, a Passion for Excellence, People Focused Learning and a Results Oriented Culture.
A Safe Working Environment
At Aecon, a safe job site is a productive one. Our company is committed to providing a safe working environment for every employee and partner with whom we work. On each site we operate, this means rigorous maintenance of our equipment and zealous enforcement of stringent workplace safety standards. As a result, not only is Aecon recognized as one of the Best Employers in Canada, but we also regularly earn a safety rating of more than 99% in national audits conducted by the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association.
Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility are deeply embedded in Aecon’s corporate culture. Across all of our many business units, we believe strongly in building relationships by giving back through various community and charitable programs. Our company is also committed to protecting the environment through sustainable construction initiatives, anti-idling programs, renewable energy solutions and many other project-based environmental initiatives.
Aecon has a rich history that spans more than a century. In fact, Aecon’s history can be traced back to 1877, when Scottish immigrant Adam Clark started a plumbing and gas fitting business in Hamilton, Ontario. Since that time, Aecon has grown into one of Canada’s largest and most diverse construction and infrastructure development companies.
Throughout the years, Aecon has been involved in the building of some of Canada’s most important landmarks, including the CN Tower, St. Lawrence Seaway, Highway 407 Express Toll Route, Vancouver Sky Train, and the Montreal-Trudeau International Airport, to name just a few.
Aecon’s predecessor companies include some of Canada’s most renowned construction names. Over the years, companies such as The Foundation Company of Canada, Jackson Lewis, Lockerbie and Hole, Bannister Pipelines, Nicholls-Radtke, Pitts Engineering Construction, and Armbro Construction have come together to form what we now know as Aecon.
For more than a century, Aecon and our predecessor companies have helped to build many of Canada’s most famous infrastructure landmarks – from the CN Tower and St. Lawrence Seaway, to the Vancouver Sky Train and Halifax Shipyards. But perhaps more importantly, we’ve also helped to build hundreds of factories, roads, sewer systems, theatres, book stores, power plants, mine sites, arts centres, offices, hotels, casinos, and gas, electrical and telecommunications networks, that may not carry the same high profile but are, nonetheless, integral to the way we live and work.
Client achievements are at the heart of the Aecon story. From small to large and start to finish, we’re committed to helping our clients achieve their objectives in all aspects of construction. From design and engineering to construction delivery and project finance, we work tirelessly to make expectations a reality. And it's this determination to deliver on our promises that has fueled Aecon’s substantial growth. Today, there isn’t a more diverse or respected construction and infrastructure development company in Canada.
Aecon offers unparalleled depth of expertise and a broad range of capabilities that can be called upon to deliver an integrated solution to virtually any construction and infrastructure development challenge...from coast to coast.
