About Us


Standard General – Calgary, is part of the Colas Group of Companies, the world leader in road construction and is a subsidiary of ColasCanada. In the peak construction season SG will employ up to 300 engineers, technologists, accountants, mechanics, trades people, equipment operators, truck drivers, administrative staff, and labourers on more than 100 projects in the Calgary area. 


Since SG began operation, it has been a part of the growth of Western Canada. Throughout the years, SG has been involved in the construction of airports, highways and much of the City of Calgary – including major roads, sub-divisions, rail yards, malls, commercial & industrial developments, lakes and golf courses. Because SG has been in operation for over 50 years, our longevity involved us in many key projects that defined the City of Calgary. Some examples are the construction of 16 Avenue North, Deerfoot Trail, Glenmore Trail Underpass, Dalhousie and Westwind LRT Park ‘N’ Ride.
