Our Story

In 1953, Jack Cewe with his wife Ginger, founded Jack Cewe Construction Ltd. Using a small inheritance from his wife, Jack bought a gravel pit in Coquitlam after working as a small but successful road builder. Three generations later, Jack Cewe Construction Ltd. is one of the largest independent gravel suppliers in BC and one of the longest tenured civil construction companies in Western Canada. Jack Cewe Construction Ltd. has been built on our three corporate pillars of our people, our customers and our community. It has been these same three pillars for over 60 years and it has been the cornerstone of our success. Jack Cewe Construction Ltd. has achieved this longevity through it’s consistent platform by leading the industry in its unwavering focus on being the most safe, and collaborative working environment in the civil construction industry.

Working in the City of Coquitlam for over fifty years, we have seen a lot of change and watched the community grow, and we have grown with it. We understand the needs of the community and we continue to be a part of Coquitlam’s continued success as one of the city’s largest employers with over 200 employees and we are one of its largest municipal taxpayers. In addition to the Lower Mainland, Jack Cewe Construction Ltd. operates a significant marine access aggregate quarry in the province, having operated in Jervis Inlet on the Sunshine Coast for over 40 years.

We are very proud to say that we are 100% British Columbia owned and operated.
