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.
Community and Responsibility
Building exceptional experiences extends beyond our projects. As a responsible builder, we are committed to health, safety and the advancement of environmental and social sustainability for all employees and communities we serve.
We believe in making a positive impact, and we do so by supporting local initiatives such as health-based causes,
youth programs, community promotions, and the fight to end poverty. We are also committed to funding the arts, professional organizations and initiatives focused on the advancement of environmental sustainability and occupational health and safety.
Some of our key initiatives include support for and volunteer involvement with the following organizations:
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.
