Wendover Construction Inc. is an Ontario based family owned and operated business. It’s owned by Gord Wendover in partnership with his son, Dan. The company has nearly 100 years of family history and experience in heavy equipment construction in Ontario.
The family construction business was started in about 1922 by David A. Wendover, Gord’s grandfather. David, or “D.A.” as his friends called him, began his career as a farmer and owned one of the first tractors in the Halton area. He developed his skills in construction along the way by hauling the stone for the roads in the area with his tractor. He continued to hone his construction skills by doing custom threshing and filling for silos, and eventually inventing the blower for the White threshing machine.
When D.A.’s sons, Carl and Brock, became interested in construction, they formed D.A. Wendover and Sons, which later expanded into the gravel business in Milton under the name of DCB Gravel. Early construction projects for the company included area landmarks such as North Burlington’s Lowville Park and many area baseball diamonds and man-made ponds.
In 1969, Gord’s joined the family construction business and began specializing in golf course construction with his father, Brock, and an associate, Ray Whaley Contracting. They built golf courses all over Ontario in partnership with golf course architect, René Muylaert. In fact, Wendover Construction was Muylaert’s preferred contractor until his death in 2005 at age 70. Notable projects included St. Andrew’s East Golf & Country Club, DiamondBack Golf Club (then called Chestnut Hill), Deer Creek Golf Club, Granite Ridge Golf Club, London Hunt and Country Club and many more.
Along with golf course construction, Wendover Construction also specializes in excavation, grading, earthmoving and shaping for all types of residential and commercial projects. Projects have included demolition, site preparation, driveway and road grading and installation, pond installations, water management projects, outdoor riding arena and racetrack installation and even snow tube park construction.
