Company History

Carl Chandler, owner and president of C. Chandler Contracting, started his building career as an apprentice carpenter in 1987, in his former home of Nova Scotia.  Him and his wife, Rachel moved to Alberta in the early 1990s, then moved to Dawson Creek, their current residence, a few years later, where they happily raised three boys – Ashton, Nathan and Kaden.  So, Carl has been building in Northern BC and Alberta since 1994.  He thrives on building a superior product and enjoys working closely with clients to ensure their vision is brought to life—from the original blueprint drawings to the final product.

Carl has lead his team through:

  • More than two hundred custom and spec home projects.
  • Major renovation projects including Boston Pizza Restaurant and Meng Fan Restaurant.
  • In 2010, Carl expanded his business, and since then Celtic has completed commercial, institutional, and industrial projects including:
    • Joe Loomis Trucking Ltd
    • Rockwater Energy Ltd
    • Cat Finning Ltd
    • B & C Trucking Ltd
    • Trimac Transportation Ltd
    • Pacific Northern Gas Ltd
    • Northern Lights College Dawson Creek
    • Louisiana Pacific Dawson Creek
    • ARC Resources
    • Bear Creek Funeral Home
    • and more

With an established management team and a large-scale workforce, the business has grown substantially all over Northern BC and Alberta. Celtic is always looking to take on larger and more complex industrial projects.
