We Build Exceptional Experiences

Clark Builders aligns the talents, aspirations and unique skills of individuals to form a creative and diverse workplace. We build relationships that extend beyond projects and careers. Our success is achieved and sustained through innovation, collaboration and a true entrepreneurial spirit. We are a team that stands firm on our reputation—and through a strong presence in Western and Northern Canada, we are not just redefining the construction experience, we are building a new one.

Clark Builders is one of the top ten general contractors in Canada and part of the largest construction organization in North America, serving industrial, commercial and institutional market sectors. Through an ownership structure comprised of our employees and our partner, Turner Construction Company, we maintain the culture of a small company with the distinct capabilities of an international firm. Regardless of the size, sector, location or complexity of a project, we will confidently deliver.

Historical Timeline

More than 40 years ago — with a love for Canada’s North — Andy Clark and Bill Giebelhaus founded Clark Builders and embarked on their first project, a small warehouse in Yellowknife. Today, that pioneering spirit continues to inspire a team that thrives on the opportunity to build in any environment and sector, and is passionate about turning ideas and visions into high-quality results. Together, we are building a legacy.
