Our History

FWS is proud to celebrate its 65th anniversary in 2018. Originating as a small general contractor in 1953, FWS steadily evolved into one of Canada’s most recognized design-build professionals in select industrial sectors.

As one of Canada’s foremost slipform concrete contractor, FWS expanded to become proficient in other industrial sectors, bringing our integrated design-build project development model to clients who demand uncompromising quality, timely project execution and accountable project cost.


As part of our 65th anniversary we have complied a timeline of our history to celebrate and honour the people and ideas that have brought us to where we are today.
