History

Magil Construction is amongst the top construction service providers across all sectors in Canada.

Magil Construction was founded in 1953 by Architect Louis B. Magil, with a vision of “Building on Excellence.” At the time, Magil Construction specialized in residential construction and was responsible for building several hundred homes in the Montreal area. After five decades, Magil Construction has not wavered from the founder’s original vision and has become one of the most accomplished and respected builders in Quebec. Our outstanding track record and hands-on approach has earned Magil Construction a strong and desirable reputation among developers, financial institutions, surety companies, design consultants as well as end users.

In 2007, with the help of one of our most valued clients, we successfully completed a major project in British Colombia - a challenge tackled with elegance - which soon afterwards paved the way for our permanent residence with the creation of Magil Construction Pacific.

In 2009 Magil Construction was acquired by Fayolle Canada, a subsidiary of Group Fayolle, a major player in the construction industry in France. This family-owned company - established in Paris four generations ago - has a long-standing tradition of excellence and reliability. The acquisitions of Magil Construction was the first major steps inFayolle Canada’s quest to becoming a cornerstone in the Canadian construction industry.

The following year, Fayolle Canada’s footprint widened with the acquisition of McKay-Cocker. McKay-Cocker was founded in 1946 in Ontario by Col. Hugh McKay and Herb Cocker, and quickly grew throughout the 1950's and 1960's, expanding its range of services and gradually becoming one of the pre-eminent fully diversified construction services company in the province, in the commercial, heavy civil, industrial, and institutional sectors. The design-build and construction management divisions have driven the company’s growth over the past few years.

Magil Construction now operates under a unified brand from coast to coast and continues to deliver on its original promise of «Building on Excellence».
