Established in 1973 by Frank and Elsie Van Bree, Birnam has undergone significant growth, evolving from its origins in municipal drainage. In the mid-80s, the second generation, Mark and Teresa, propelled Birnam’s expansion into sewer, watermain, and road construction sectors. Now, with the third generation, Kevin, Bryan, and Phil, Birnam’s team has swelled from 5 to over 70 members.

Today, Birnam’s civil division specializes in the sewer, watermain, and road construction sectors with an emphasis on residential development and challenging municipal projects.  Birnam’s general contracting division focuses on more vertical construction like treatment plants, pumping stations, as well as parks and other recreational facilities.

Central to Birnam’s success is its unwavering focus on its greatest asset: its employees. Recognizing the vital role they play in driving innovation and delivering excellence, the company places a strong emphasis on nurturing talent and fostering a culture of collaboration. Through mentorship, training, and opportunities for growth, Birnam empowers its team to reach their full potential.

At the heart of Birnam’s ethos lies the belief that every project, no matter how big or small, serves as an opportunity to make a positive impact. Guided by the mantra “Building Today for a Stronger Tomorrow,” the company remains steadfast in its commitment to delivering quality service and exceeding expectations. With each endeavour, Birnam reaffirms its dedication to shaping a brighter future for the communities it serves.
