We Build Exceptional Experiences

One of the top ten general contractors in Canada and part of the largest construction organization in North America, Clark Builders serves 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.

Consistently Top-Rated

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' core values represent the spirit that our company was founded on. They are more than words; each one underlies the commitment that we bring to every person we meet, every team we build and every project we work on, start to finish.
