About Us

Because we live here we try to give back to the community and support local organizations and charities whenever we can. When we help make the community stronger we make life better on the job and off.

What We Do

Everyone is interested in budgets, but anyone who's worked  in the industry knows that the lowest price is not always the best deal....experience, commitment and the ability to do the job right  is what counts.

From conception to project turnover, CBS Construction provide an extensive offering of services across a broad spectrum of construction project complexity. CBS's highly skilled senior management group carries more than 120 years of construction maintenance experience.

"I've always believed that honesty and integrity are the most important things we offer matter what the project is, people want to know that your word is as solid as the Buildings you construct"

Garry Fizzell - Owner

Where we began

CBS Construction began back in 1978 with two employees and a handful of small contracts in and around the Fort McMurray area. In the early eighties, owner Garry Fizzel took the reigns and began to establish CBS's reputation as a company where safety, quality and efficiency were the standard.

CBS's start coincided with the expansion of northern Alberta's oil industry, and we developed relationships with companies such as Syncrude Canada Ltd. and Suncor Energy Inc. early on. As their needs grew, we grew with them, tackling larger and more complex projects. These relationships continue to this day.

Today, CBS Construction is one of Fort McMurray's most successful construction and maintenance contractors, with more than 250 employee's. Over the years, we've developed specialties in;

  • General Contracting
  • Industrial Concrete
  • Facility Maintenance
  • Labor Supply

At CBS we believe the most important thing we bring to every job is our commitment - to safety, to quality and to setting the highest standards in everything we do.

We are proud of the work we have done and of the partnership's we have built with our clients, many of whom have worked with us for more than thirty years. Their faith in us says more about our work than we ever could.
