John C. Scott, P.Eng
Chief Executive Officer and President
John Scott founded J.C. Scott Construction Ltd. in 1984 because he realized clients needed a total-solutions approach to construction. John identified a better way to build, applying planning and value engineering early in the development process to reduce costs and improve constructability.
The company began providing construction services for commercial and residential projects, with the first residential high-rise in 1987. Since then, Scott Construction has expanded its experience to include institutional and industrial projects, becoming known for personal service, integrity, and strong management.
In addition to leading Scott Construction’s direction and growth, John is also active in the community, lending his expertise to many different organizations. John has served 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 first Vice Chair. He also helped establish the Construction Chair at UBC. John was also 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.
Prior to founding Scott Construction, John was a design engineer, a project manager, and a vice-president of construction, involved with the construction of commercial and residential properties across Canada, devising engineering and construction solutions for industries ranging from aviation to retail.
