John C. Scott, P.Eng
Chairman & Founder
In the early ‘80s, John Scott identified an unmet need in the Lower Mainland for a comprehensive “total solutions” approach to construction. With a service model built on trust, he founded J.C. Scott Construction Ltd. in 1984. Quickly John began to implement a better way to build, applying planning and value engineering at the early stages of the development process when it would have the greatest impact in cost reduction and constructability.
Initially the company provided construction services for commercial and multi-family residential projects, with the company’s first residential high-rise taking shape in 1987. Over the years Scott Construction successfully expanded its portfolio to include institutional and industrial projects, and continued to build its reputation for personal service, strong management, and integrity.
For more than three decades Scott Construction continued to grow and thrive under John’s leadership, when, in 2017, he chose to pass the torch to the capable hands of Darin Hughes, Scott’s current President & CEO.
Throughout his career, John has been fully engaged in his commitment to the industry and the community. He lends his expertise to many different organizations, serving as the Chair of the Pacific Parklands Foundation, the Director of the Urban Development Institute, an advisory member of the City of Vancouver Development Permit Board, and a committee representative of the Homeowners Protection Office. John was a founding member of the Construction Round Table and served as the organization’s first Vice Chair. He also helped establish the Construction Chair at UBC and was involved with the Construction Research Institute of Canada. John is registered as a professional engineer with the Association of Engineers and Geoscientists of BC, and is a member of the Vancouver Regional Construction Association and the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of BC.
