About us

BA Blacktop, a subsidiary of Eurovia (VINCI Group) was founded in the Province of British Columbia in 1956. We have grown to become a major general contractor and design-builder, with a progressive and multi-disciplined group of companies delivering specialized paving, concrete, milling, reclaiming and recycling services, as well as multi-span bridge construction and innovative concrete structure solutions to clients throughout British Columbia. 


As an ISO 9001:2008 registered company with a reputation for reliability, we know how to deliver projects to our clients’ satisfaction. If your project has anything to do with constructing transportation infrastructure to move goods or people, BA Blacktop is ready to take on the challenge.

As an integrated concessions-construction company, VINCI designs, finances, builds and operates infrastructure and facilities that help improve daily life and mobility. Because our projects are in the public interest, we at VINCI consider that we have a duty to reach out to our public and private sector partners and to engage in dialogue with them and are publishing a new Manifesto with commitments meeting that objective.

Employing an effective management team has been the key contributing factor of BA Blacktop’s long-term success over the last several decades; each manager brings valuable experience and a diverse background in areas such as safety innovation, financial management, operations and employee training. With the administration of its management team, BA Blacktop continues to be a viable and reputable business in today’s highly competitive market.


It is the goal of the BA Blacktop Ltd. Group of Companies to ensure the health and safety of our workforce. The management team is determined to achieve this goal by  promoting a safety culture and by providing safe and healthy working conditions for our employees and sub-contractors.
