Engineering and construction
Alberta's engineering and construction (EC) firms make a significant contribution to Alberta's economy, accounting for 9% of the province's gross domestic product (GDP).
Dedication in developing and applying technology and project management skills enhances each undertaking and promotes a well-known standard of distinction. Building on long-established excellence in civil, mechanical, municipal and environmental disciplines, Alberta's EC firms are skilled in the design and construction of major projects.
EC is a knowledge-based sector. The more than 275,000 Albertans employed in this sector have succeeded in developing diverse and strong world-class skills. Indirect and induced employment is approximately equal to direct employment.
