The History Of Graham Design & Contruction
Great grandfather, William Hicks started his construction business in 1910 and it was his influence that drew his son-in-law, Clarence Graham, into the construction trade. In 1956, Clarence started his own general construction company, which was very successful and grew rapidly. As opportunities developed he incorporated Graham Holdings in 1965, specifically to develop a 35-lot residential sub-division along Georgian Bay. This development is just south of what is now known as Cobble Beach. Since then, the company has developed numerous lands, currently owns two commercial rental properties, and also owns residential land in the Owen Sound area.
The 3rd generation and design element of the construction business was added when Clarence’s son, Richard, joined him in 1972. After gaining work experience elsewhere, 3 of Richard’s children joined the team. Todd joined in 2011, Marc joined in 2013, and Katie joined in 2014. All three are dedicated to professionalism, bring new knowledge to the business, and will ensure the longevity of the company for the future.
