Built on the past, built to last
By Deb Draper
P.W. Graham & Sons got its start in the construction
industry in 1926, building railway stations for the
Pacific Railway in Moose Jaw, Sask. Soon the Great
Depression of the ‘30s hit the prairies hard, forcing the new
company to diversify into government infrastructures such
schools and hospitals. In the ‘50s came construction of the
Boundary Dam power generating station near Estevan,
Saskatchewan’s largest infrastructure project at that time.
More civil infrastructure followed, then mining and further
industrial projects. Then, in 1985, the Graham employees
purchased the company, and Graham Construction was
Fueled by the founding family’s belief in commitment,
integrity and reliability, Graham continued to diversify and
grow into what it is today – one of North America’s leading, fully-integrated
construction company with revenues exceeding
$2.1 billion annually.
Tom Cole, general manager, Infrastructure, has been with
Graham for over 20 years. He sees how strong growth and
success goes back to the company’s beginnings.
