Argue Construction Ltd. was founded (formerly Bruce Baird Construction Ltd.) in 1982 by Bruce Baird. In 2006, Bruce Baird formed a partnership with Shawn Argue and subsequently retired from Baird Construction Management Ltd. at the end of 2009. Since then, the firm has been solely owned by Shawn Argue (current President).

As a 7th generation Argue in the Stittsville/Carp area, the change from Baird Construction Management Ltd. to Argue Construction Limited was completed as a tribute to Shawn’s family name and their strong roots in the local community as well as the construction industry (over 100 years).

Argue Construction Ltd. has had 30 years of successful partnerships with both private sector businesses and government agencies, and we pride ourselves in our large number of repeat clients.
