Mission Statement

“To enhance our clients’ satisfaction through innovative construction practices focusing on cost efficiency, value engineering and schedule control, strengthened by an emphasis on safety, quality, and delivery of exceptional projects.”

Our History

Dawson Wallace Construction Ltd. has offices in Edmonton, Calgary and Lethbridge and has provided construction services on many types of projects since our incorporation in 1987. Our portfolio includes retail, restaurants, industrial warehousing, light industrial facilities, office buildings, schools, libraries and banking facilities.

Dawson Wallace’s corporate partnership consists of four principal partners: Peter Dawson, Wayne Wallace, Myron Grunsky, and Leroy Grunsky. Our volume over the past few years has ranked us consistently among the Top 50 General Contractors in Canada; last year we were listed in the top 20.

Our Passion

Each member of our team measures their success by the level of client satisfaction. This passion to succeed has resulted in many repeat clients who appreciate the commitment we deliver. We are dedicated to providing the necessary tools that allow them to advance their career and exceed our clients’ expectations.

Our Culture

Project Delivery

A significant number of our projects are delivered using the Construction Management format. Our staff have become proficient and focused on this format, providing the client with input at the early stage of the project planning.


As a team, Dawson Wallace is proud of its employees and recognizes their valuable contribution and achievements. With proven service, accountability, time and cost control, we are a company that keeps our clients coming back time and time again.


We recognize and appreciate the talent and value our subcontractors bring to our projects. We have developed strong relationships with many of our trades which is particularly important when applying the Construction Management delivery format. These exceptional trades recognize they are an integral part each project’s success and are committed to quality work at competitive costs, completed in a timely manner.

Quality Control

We recognize the importance our clients place on quality. We have implemented procedures and documentation to ensure we provide the highest level of excellence. Selection of knowledgeable trades who have a proven record of providing quality and stand behind their work is critical to achieve success. Placing a priority on minimization and quick correction of deficiencies provides for a smooth turnover to our clients.


We promote a culture of safety through regular safety committee meetings, implementation, regular updating of our safety program, and daily site meetings by our staff and our subcontractors. As prime contractor our staff recognizes we must be leaders in developing the culture of safety with all personnel on our sites.
