One Step Ahead


We have been proudly serving clients from Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and Guelph to the Ottawa Valley since 1996. Family owned and operated, we have built a reputation for treating your project like it’s our own. 

We work with established, trusted sub-trades, use quality building materials and maintain a clean work site on a constant basis. Our unparalleled attention to detail and finishing touches ensures that we will exceed your expectations. 


Our motto has always been that what’s behind the walls matters as much as what’s in front. We don’t cut corners, we’re not in a race, and we are extremely picky in our process.

I’m Al, owner of Harris Construction. You’ve come here to learn a little bit about me, so here’s the gist:

I was born, fed and raised in Kitchener, ON where I attended Conestoga College and graduated with a diploma in Construction Engineering Technology in 1994. From there, I started this business in ’96 and went on to get married in ’01 and have two sons, Dylan and Brock. I’ve been around the block and back, and bring that experience to every project I work on.

I get my construction and building sense from my grandfather, Roy. You could say I followed in his “footsteps”, and I’ve been trying to fill them ever since.

I’m a “hands-on, get it done, straight-shooter” kind of guy, and run my business the same way. I set high standards for myself and my clients, and expect the same value in return.

Whatever your construction project may be, I’m here to get the job done.
