About Modern

Transforming ideas into world-class physical spaces.

With the unique combination of capacity and agility, Modern Niagara can carry out the biggest, most complex jobs and change course when circumstances demand to keep projects on track. Our teams bring deep expertise, passion, and ingenuity to every project.

Modern Niagara helps building owners, managers and general contractors achieve their objectives by meeting the mechanical, electrical, Integrated Building Technology, and building services needs of their properties across six main regions in Canada: Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Southwestern Ontario, and Ottawa. This means that we also develop custom, turnkey solutions to help reach the desired outcomes.


We build for life.

We build for the life that happens indoors. We know that Canadians spend the vast majority of their time inside buildings. From receiving healthcare to legislating and representing citizens to participating in sports and other activities, we make any space comfortable and healthy for those who use it. We are committed to providing exceptional occupant experiences.

We build for the life of the building. Buildings can best reach the objectives they were set out to achieve when we look at them over the course of their entire life, including design, construction, operation, maintenance, and improvement. For us, using data and evidence to inform decisions provides us and our partners with an effective path towards high-performing, sustainable facilities.

We build for the life of our communities. We know that buildings do not exist in a vacuum. Buildings, streets, and the people that occupy and use them are but a few of the ingredients that make up our cities and communities. We believe that nurturing social equity, enabling economic activity, and reducing our impact on the environment in all that we do – including how we build and maintain our buildings – is integral to playing a positive role in sustaining our communities for us and for future generations.
