Overview The Wales Way

A History of Excellence

We’ve spent the past 50 years developing a specialized process that consistently delivers exceptional results. It’s been shaped, refined, and perfected over the course of 500 successful projects. Today, with the help of our experienced team, trade partners, and cutting-edge technology, we’ve streamlined the way we work so we can tackle the most complex and challenging projects better and faster than anyone in Western Canada.

We are Commercial Builders

When we partner with a commercial company, we get to know their business inside and out: their daily activities, how they use a space, and the demands and requirements that they need to meet every day. Once we know the operations, we set out to plan, design, and build a space that not only solves their unique challenges, but also drives results.

We are Industrial Builders

The industrial sector requires construction at the highest level, so having a specialized building partner is crucial. At Wales McLelland, we understand exactly what it takes to meet the most complex requirements, while keeping costs down and goals met. Whether it’s a climate-controlled building or a major distribution centre, we focus on accuracy from the start, so that our clients get exactly what they want in the end.

60 Million Square Feet Built

We are Repeat Builders

We’re not just in the business of commercial and industrial buildings. We’re in the business of building relationships that last. That’s why you’ll see many of our clients more than once in our portfolio. We pride ourselves on our history of creating long-term partnerships and executing on what we promised. We’ve spent 50 years doing our best work for some of the biggest names in the industry, and they keep coming back because they trust Wales McLelland to do the job right every time.

Building Value into Your Business

At Wales McLelland, we do so much more than construction. We engineer value solutions so our partners can get the most out of their business. We do this by asking our clients the right questions before we set foot on the job site, by identifying potential growth opportunities, and by creating a working relationship that allows for collaboration.

Pre-Construction Done Right

We’ve completed over 500 projects because we know planning leads to success. The acquisition and land development process today is more complicated than ever.  Soil conditions, environmental, third party approvals such as rezoning and subdivisions, site servicing and offsite construction are all growing challenges in an industry that faces increasing land constraints. Due diligence and feasibility analysis need to be done accurately, sometimes with minimal information, but also quickly to meet decision point deadlines. Developing a comprehensive execution plan during pre-construction allows risks to be properly identified, costed and mitigated, but also allows for opportunities to be identified then leveraged later on in the construction phase.  Line of site across all construction phases while taking into consideration our clients’ unique requirements and needs is what we do upfront by preparing a foundation for project success.
