EllisDon‘s Western Civil Group has separated out from under the Buildings Group umbrella to operate as a separate entity and region serving Alberta and British Columbia.
The new group will be led by Colin Hill, vice president of Western Civil, EllisDon. Hill is a 20-year veteran in civil construction and will work with a hand-selected team of industry experts.
Over the past five years, Hill has been actively developing the Western Civil team under the Calgary Buildings Group with the intention of becoming an independent entity at the right time.
“I am incredibly excited to lead our deeply talented civil team as we take on our own area of responsibility in Western Canada. I am very proud of the civil team we have built over the years, and our achievements as a group in a short period of time are an indication of even greater things to come,” said Hill.
Western Civil will focus on transit, infrastructure, environmental and small civil projects and will operate out of EllisDon’s already established hub centres in Western Canada.
Major projects include the Edmonton Valley Line LRT, West Calgary Ring Road, Bowfort Road Interchange, Airport Trail Tunnel, and the Glenmore and Bearspaw Water Treatment Plant Upgrades.
“Our team is focused on collaboration with the buildings groups in Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver and we commit to work collectively in these areas to deliver a broader range of construction services and market share,” said Hill.
Western Civil will lean on their self-performing concrete form, place and finish capability for increased competitiveness across the region.
