History[edit]

Founded in London, Ontario, the company's name is derived from the names of the founders, Don Smith and David Ellis Smith. EllisDon was the first Can­adian contractor to purchase and operate its own tower crane in 1956.[1] It established the first fully computerized accounting and cost-control system used in the industry.[2]

It designed and built one of the first retractable roof stadiums, the Rogers Centre, completed in 1989.[1] In the 2010s, EllisDon was involved in the redevelopment and redesign of Ontario's ONroute service centres.[3]
