Why Choose Us

International Expertise and Passion

At RJW Stonemasons Ltd., We have the dedication, knowledge and passion necessary to carry out all tasks within the masonry domain. With decades of experience, we are aware that every job requires a different and strategic approach in order to maximize efficiency while maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for all our team members and partners in the field.

Our Roots

RJW Stonemasons Ltd. was founded in 1987 and enjoyed continuous growth and opportunities through the provision of stone masonry services to the government, as well as the industrial, commercial, institutional and residential constructions sectors.

In the mid-1990s we relocated from Whitby, Ontario to Ottawa, Ontario in order to help address the increasing demand for qualified stonemasons in the region. Participating in the massive restoration works planned for the Parliamentary Precinct and establishing a training program on the Centre Block South Façade project were also key factors in the decision to relocate.

New Facilities Inspire New Growth

Growth continued following the relocation, resulting in the establishment of a large blade stone cutting facility in Ottawa in 2000. This further broadened the range of services available and provided the capacity to serve clients outside of Canada. In the fall of 2009, RJW Stonemasons outgrew its facilities and built a new 20,000 square foot state of the art facility.  The new facility also put the company on a perfect footing to accommodate a job as big as the West Block Rehabilitation Project, but a suitable partner had to be found to complement the company’s practical expertise with bonding clout and project management experience with massive multi-faceted contracts. That is where Gem Campbell came into the picture.

Collaboration Makes Us Stronger

On occasion there may be a project that requires other facets or expertise. In order to give the client, the best possible outcome, collaboration or partnering with another company may be required.

One particular collaboration that is noteworthy is the one between us and Gem Campbell Terrazzo and Tile Inc. The first project that we worked on together was the Victoria Memorial Museum Building, with a very triumphant outcome.

This led to a 5-year partnership to complete the West Block Rehabilitation Project on Parliament Hill. The partnership between these two businesses was founded on congruent values, attitudes and beliefs.

Today our work takes us across the country, throughout North America and beyond; providing stone masonry services to the government, industrial, commercial, institutional and residential sectors. ​

We offer the following services:

—  Historic masonry restoration
—  New masonry construction
—  Stone carving
—  Stone supply
—  Masonry conservation
—  Training
