Why Taggart?

The roots of the Taggart Group of Companies date back to the early 1940s when Harold Taggart started building homes in the west end of Ottawa. After recognizing an opportunity in servicing the land for new home construction, Harold decided to start a construction company specializing in infrastructure. He founded Taggart Construction in 1948. With enthusiasm, hard work, and a dedicated team of employees, Taggart Construction flourished and provided the momentum needed for the continued growth of the Taggart Group of Companies. Harold’s children and grandchildren have since joined the business, adding new companies and expanding the scope of services offered.

When you select the Taggart Group, you are unlocking the power of five experienced companies, each with its own proven record of success: Doran Contractors Limited, Tamarack Homes, Tartan Homes, Taggart Construction Limited, and Taggart Realty Management. Together, we offer a high level of quality that comes from deep knowledge of and experience in commercial, industrial, and residential construction, land development, and property management.

At the core of every Taggart company is a teamwork ethos. We take great care in our hiring processes and staff training to ensure that employees work well with clients, partners, and each other. With more than 700 employees, we enjoy a strong reputation for technical expertise, integrity, and cooperation.
