About Ruiter

For more than three decades, Ruiter Construction has been serving Ottawa entrepreneurs, owners, public-sector organizations and private enterprise with building excellence. As one of the region’s senior general contractors, Ruiter Construction offers professional expertise in construction management, design-build and consulting services.

In-depth capacity and experience

Even with our current volume of $40 million per year in project activity, we still leave room to grow. Our portfolio features a full range of building projects, from commercial to institutional, from industrial to technology projects, from green buildings to retrofits.

Innovation starts with our people

Since our founding in 1982, Ruiter Construction has built a loyal family of staff — many of whom have been with the firm for over 20 years.

Precision and craftsmanship, always

Ruiter Construction builds the way we manage: with unflinching attention to detail. Accurate budgets that provide and maintain realistic schedules that comply with client requirements, as well as field-tested advice on methods of delivery systems for conventional construction — these are all mainstays with us.

Industry accredited and community active

In addition to being members of the Ottawa Construction Association, the Canadian Construction Association and the General Contractors Association of Ottawa, Ruiter believes in sharing its expertise with the community. That’s why our CEO, Ted Ruiter, is active in each of these associations. Ted has served on the Board of Directors of the Ottawa Construction Association for 14 years, and was the Chairman of the Board in 1999. He was also a Director of the Canadian Construction Association for four years.
