Whissell Contracting traces its roots back to 1970 with the completion of their first contract in Calgary, Huntington Hills, Phase 6. Since the onset, President and CEO, Brian Whissell, has always surrounded himself with like-minded individuals, creating a team that shares his values for safety, people, integrity, respect, innovation and teamwork. Today, almost 40 years later, we celebrate the successful operation of three divisions: Sewer and Water Construction; Heavy Haul Transporation; and Equipment Contracting.
Our people combine decades of experience with dedication to respond to the changing needs of our valued clients. Major clients include land developers, municipal governments, oil and gas industry and other private sectors.
Whissell is committed to excellence with continuous investment in our facilities, equipment and people. Our corporate headquarters is located in south east Calgary. The facility was built in 1999 and includes 9,500 square feet of office space and with a recent shop expansion, over 16,000 square feet of shop space. We continually update and maintain our equipment fleet allowing us to provide reliable and cost effective service. Investment in our people includes training in safety and industry best practices. Additionally we have built strong relationships with our suppliers, financial, insurance and bonding partners allowing us greater flexibility in serving our clients. Finally, Whissell has invested in their industry with memberships to the Canadian Construction Association, Alberta Roadbuilders and Heavy Construction Association, Merit Contractors Association, Calgary Construction Association and Urban Development Institute (Associate).
