B&B Contracting GroupWith over 70 years of industry experience and expertise in underground utilities, roads, gravels, excavation, and infrastructure.
B&B Contracting was founded in 1948 in Surrey, BC, as a trucking company. As time went on, a natural evolution in services and volume brought about the opportunity to reorganize the company and allow for each arm to become even more specialized.
In 1981, this lead to the creation of Fraser Valley Aggregates Ltd. (FVA) and B&B Contracting Ltd. (B&B). FVA more closely resembled the services B&B initially offered, such as trucking, gravel sales, and aggregate production. B&B Contracting Ltd. instead focused on diking, road building, highway construction, and utility contracting, to the point of becoming leaders in the civil contracting industry.
In 1996, the B&B Contracting Group created A&A Testing Ltd. to service all of our clients’ CCTV inspection, sewer cleaning, and air and water testing requirements.
In 2006, B&B Contracting Ltd. acquired Neelco Construction (1986) Inc., a structural construction company that B&B had partnered with on previous projects.
In 2012, Neelco underwent a name change, and thereafter has been called B&B Heavy Civil Construction Ltd. (BBHC). BBHC’s experience and industry relationships helped B&B develop a competitive structural division that specialized in building bridges. That same year, the management group worked with the Bailey family to create an ownership succession plan. This brought about another name change, where B&B Contracting Ltd. became B&B Contracting (2012) Ltd. Today, majority ownership of the B&B Contracting Group remains private and controlling interest remains with the Bailey family as it has since 1948.
In 2014, in order to continually evolve and meet industry demands, the B&B Contracting Group separated the bulk excavation and shoring works from B&B Contracting (2012) Ltd., and created the new company called Ekset Excavations and Shoring Ltd.
In 2017, Ekset underwent a name change and is now called B&B Excavation & Shoring Ltd. Although the B&B Contracting Group does not include its own shoring division, B&B Excavation & Shoring’s reputation in the industry and years of developing positive relationships with local shoring suppliers and subcontractors allows for continually competitive pricing in this sector.
Together, B&B Contracting (2012) Ltd., B&B Excavation & Shoring Ltd., B&B Heavy Civil Construction Ltd., Fraser Valley Aggregates Ltd., and A&A Testing Ltd. make up the B&B Contracting Group. The B&B Contracting Group is highly capable and has a reputation for bringing projects to completion on schedule and on budget while keeping both safety and quality top of mind.
