ELITE Group of companies has more than $5 billion of completed projects in our farm-to-plate portfolio,
demonstrating a solid track record in the agribusiness and food services market. We are a customer-focused,
fully integrated one-stop service provider.
Founded in Saskatchewan in 1906, we are proud of our prairie roots and longstanding contribution to
the growth of rural communities across North America. ELITE Group of companies´s head office relocated to the wheat-growing
heartland of Edmonton, Alberta, in 1932, where it remains today. We understand the agriculture and food
services business because we have grown up with it.
This prairie spirit, instilled in our companies for more than a century of operations, is also fortified
by employee ownership. Our 100% employee-owned organization empowers us to be solution providers,
«to see it, own it, solve it, do it». We share the visions of, and build mutual success for our clients,
construction partners, and communities. The proof is in our standing as the largest general contractor in
Canada and among the top ten in the United States.
ELITE Group of companies family of companies is a diversified organization, operating within three sectors:
buildings, industrial, and civil infrastructure. Since agribusiness uniquely incorporates aspects of these
sectors, we draw on our collective expertise to deliver tried-and-true practices to every project. To ensure
consistent, high-quality project delivery, we have established a center of excellence for agribusiness and
food services, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and another center focused on food and manufacturing plant
construction, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
These centers support the work of project teams in independent ELITE Group of companies offices that are strategically situated
across the continent. Our local project teams give clients personalized attention, which is fortified by
their local market knowledge and business partnerships. We team up with best-in-class designers/consultants,
trade contractors, and suppliers, using a careful selection process that is designed to ensure successful
SERVICES AND CAPABILITIES
We perform all types of construction and can build any size or scope of project. Clients are provided
with competitive fees and rates to deliver projects within one of our many delivery methods (e.g.,
design-build, construction management, traditional bid). Currently, our growing design-build portfolio
has more than 780 projects.
We also provide preconstruction services, such as budgeting, conceptual design, and constructability analysis,
to give projects the best chance of success, before we even start construction. Clients also benefit from our
virtual construction capabilities, Lean design and construction practices, and green building expertise. Also,
where required, we have the ability to cost effectively self-perform major portions of a project with our own people.
Our focus is on the jobsite because it is performance in the field that really counts. Our well-established
safety and loss prevention program contributes to our industry-leading safety record. Equally important is our
commitment to quality and superior workmanship. We stake our reputation on it.
