McConnell Building Movers have been relocating large structures in Central Alberta for so long, Social Credit was the party in power when we began. Jim McConnell learned the building moving trade from his father, Phil "Slugger" McConnell and in 1971, Jim went on his own with a set of wood beams and a couple of jacks. Keeping it all in the family, Jim's son, Jason, now runs day-to-day operations out of our Millet head office.
Rather than diluting our combined years of experience with multiple teams, the McConnells choose to operate with just a single, well-seasoned crew, which has the quiet confidence that comes with almost a century of experience in challenging infrastructure relocation projects.
In the last 10 years McConnell has solidified the company's position as the premier structural mover in Alberta. We have designed and built new technologies for our trade, such as hydraulic dollies that create an exclusive, state-of-the-art, large capacity transportion platform. Check out our equipment section on this site to see how our latest additions can remove the worry from the most challenging building reloaction projects..
