Proud History

Primary Engineering Corporation was incorporated in 2002 to provide service excellence in electrical engineering design and Design-Build to developers and utility companies in Alberta. During the first five years, Primary Engineering experienced strong and steady growth, with a team of 20 staff in Alberta. In 2006, Primary Engineering branched out to B.C. and opened their first office outside of Alberta in Kelowna, with the Victoria office opening shortly thereafter in 2010.

In 2010, Primary Engineering merged with JLT Construction Inc., forming Primary Engineering and Construction Corporation (Primary), to better serve client demand for Design-Build project solutions. By adding construction resources into Alberta, clients experienced quicker turnaround on projects.

In 2012, with BC Hydro’s Customer Build Program launch into the lower mainland, Primary opened its third B.C. office in Burnaby, B.C. Shortly after, Primary was directed to opportunities in Saskatchewan and opened its first office in Saskatoon in early 2013. Further expansion to Regina in April 2014 enabled Primary to support SaskPower’s Turnkey Program.
