Celebrating 95 Years of Service

This year marks the 95th year of service for Bird Construction. Through the highs and lows of demand in the construction industry in Canada, we have persevered.

In 1920, Hubert J. Bird established Bird Construction Company Limited in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. For several years, the company worked in Moose Jaw, Regina, southern Saskatchewan communities and later branched into the Alberta market. It was in 1927 that the firm had its first big year, securing the additions to both the Providence Hospital and General Hospital in Moose Jaw.

Bird survived the Great Depression by securing a $1 million contract to build the Canadian Pacific Railway's Regina Union Station. During the Depression years, all key office personnel remained on the payroll although drastic salary cuts had to be made. In later years, it was this group that formed the core of our fast growing organization. They were recognized for their dedication as many served 25 years or more with the company, resulting in their induction into Bird's 25 Year Club, which today has a total of 179 members. For more on Bird's history, visit our history time here.

Fast-forward to present day, the company has grown to over 2,000 employees and has extended its market and geographical reach. As a true national general contractor we have 12 district offices coast-to-coast and our clients include pre-eminent firms in the commercial, institutional, retail, multi-tenant residential, industrial, mining, water and wastewater, energy and civil sectors. As 2015 marks our 95th year in business, we look forward to remaining a leader in the construction industry and continuing on our success for many years to come. Thank you to all who have made this possible — our employees are truly the lifeblood of our company.
