We are NRB

Say it with us: Yes we can.

We want people to think differently about commercial construction.

That’s where our entrepreneurial spirit and can-do attitude come in. Tell us about a project and we almost never say ‘no.’ We’ll figure out how to deliver it with all the advantages of modular construction while staying true to the original design vision.

Two countries. One culture.

NRB may have plants on both sides of the border, but we have one set of values.

We liken it to family—which is fitting, because the company was started in 1979 by the McNeils and is still family-owned. A strong family doesn’t let different personalities distract from a shared belief in what is important. It nurtures the behavior it wants. Corrects the behaviour it doesn’t. And keeps the peace with U.S. and Canadian spelling. Maple leaf or stars and stripes—it’s in our DNA to strive to be better.

Our hearts are in construction.

We may be considered a manufacturer, but our hearts and hands are in construction.

We love the sound of grinding steel and the smell of freshly cut lumber. We can run pipe and install ceramics—perfectly. And we can supervise any job site.

About-work-v2

We ‘build together.’

‘Build together’ is both a methodology and a mindset for us.

When we ‘build together’ we’re preassembling your building in our plant so when it’s delivered we know all the pieces will fit together perfectly. But it’s also how we work with you, collaborating with our clients and construction partners to achieve the best design, engineering, scheduling and cost outcomes possible.
