Company History

1980: Mid-West Design & Construction was founded in Medicine Hat, Alberta by Fred Keck, Ed Law and Ron Helwer. We started out servicing the agricultural market by providing high quality farm building solutions. As a direct result of that success, we grew quickly and expanded to the commercial and industrial markets.

1983: As a result of the success of Mid-West Design & Construction we decided to establish our sister company, Southwest Design & Construction in Lethbridge, Alberta. Southwest Design & Construction expanded our footprint in Southern Alberta provided us with a platform for future growth.

2007: Southwest Design & Construction expanded its operations to Northern Alberta and opened our Grande Prairie office.

2009: Mid-West Design & Construction also continued its expansion with a new office opening in Calgary, Alberta.

2010: Together, Southwest Design & Construction and Mid-West Design & Construction, have continued to transform the size and shape of our business through strategic growth and expansion. From our beginnings as a dealer of agricultural steel storage products in 1980, thirty five years later we have become one of Canada’s leading general contractors in today's market. Both companies have won numerous design awards and received recognition by some of North America’s major steel building manufacturers.
