Bring in the Big Block party

When you have a construction project ahead of you, getting to the finish line can be a big challenge.

The Big Block team can guide you on that journey. We’re developers who understand the whole process, providing consulting and construction expertise as needed.

About Big Block

Big Block Construction was born out of more than a decade of experience under the Innovative Residential banner. The Big Block team has been a part of developing and managing over 20 multi-unit residential construction projects totalling over 1,500 units and $330 million in construction value.

Through that work, the Big Block team helped solved Saskatoon’s affordable housing crisis by mastering efficient building practices using modular construction and developing unique financial assistance programs in partnership with Innovative Residential, the City of Saskatoon, and the National Affordable Housing Corporation.

No matter where you are along your journey, we can help ensure your project will be successful.

Big Block Construction is much more than just a builder. We have extensive knowledge in every stage of project development, including:

  • ideation and initial market analysis
  • financial feasibility studies
  • risk mitigation
  • design and budgeting
  • construction and commissioning
Our founding philosophy
Buildings should be completed without wasting resources, so we’ll stop at nothing to bulldoze archaic construction methods.

We’re on a mission to accelerate the adoption of efficient modern technology throughout the construction industry, and we’re helping others build smarter along the way.
