Scott Builders was formed in 1971 and remained a relatively small regional general contractor, specializing in the sale and erection of Butler Engineered Building Systems.   In 1978 it began to broaden its service options into Design | Build work.  The company remained a relatively small, regional builder until Ralph Ward took over in 1986.

Within 3 years the company had expanded by adding full service offices in both Calgary and Edmonton.  Their ability to design and construct larger projects, the growth of their client base resulting in considerable repeat business and a companywide DNA of putting their people and customers ‘first’, took hold.
