About Us

Standard General Inc. is a major civil construction contractor that has been serving the Greater Edmonton Region for over 45 years. We build major public roadways, private developments and Industrial construction projects. Our core business is road construction and material sales.

Standard General is part of the Colas Group of Companies, the world leader in road construction. Being part of the Colas Group affords us the ability to invest in technology and innovation so that we may provide the safest most efficient solutions possible in the road construction industry.

In the peak construction season we will employ up to 400 engineers, technologists, accountants, mechanics, trades people, equipment operators, truck drivers, administrative staff and labourers. We are truly proud to be a part of the communities that we work in and live in.

Standard General is vertically integrated which allows us to complete quality work in an efficient and timely manner.  We have asphalt plants in Acheson, Edmonton, Leduc and we harvest our gravel from our Windfall Gravel Pit near Whitecourt, Alberta. We transport our gravel via rail to our Acheson transload facility for distribution to our various plants and depots in the Greater Edmonton Region.

At Standard General, we are a responsible corporate citizen and we strive to operate in a safe, environmentally-friendly manner. We value the communities where we work and take pride in providing our clients with quality results in a timely and efficient manner.
