Alcan Builders is a 37 year Fairbanks-based general contractor, skilled at commercial and government projects ranging from $100k to $50M. We pride ourselves on providing outstanding customer satisfaction.

Our management and core staff has over 75 years of Alaskan construction experience. Alcan’s relatively small size allows us to be extremely efficient, thus able to quickly respond to changing conditions, yet we are able to effectively marshal sufficient resources to complete projects of significant magnitude.

Founded in 1981 by company owner and President Jeff Alling, Alcan has taken on progressively more challenging projects. Perhaps no other project exemplifies our willingness to go the extra mile more than the Denali Princess Hotel project, which was completely destroyed by fire on March 23, 1996. We were asked to do the seemingly impossible by rebuilding this facility in time for reopening before May 13th, the start of the summer tourist season, and under extremely hostile weather conditions. Nonetheless, Alcan and its subcontractors performed an incredible job, and 44 days after receiving a notice to proceed, we turned over a brand new facility to the owner.

In recent years Alcan Builders has completed several projects. One of our recent projects was our 12 million dollar satellite operations facility at Gilmore tracking station for the Army Corps of Engineers and NOAA. We also constructed a 24 million dollar hotel for Princess Tours just outside of Denali Park.

With the retail boom in 2012, we fast tracked a Holiday Station Store off of Northside Blvd. We broke ground in 2012 and the owner occupied the store on November 30, 3 ½ months later.

Another one of Alcan’s most recently completed projects includes a Brown Jug Liquor Store with a 14,000 sf floor area. This had a spring startup and was completed in a 6 month turn around that included numerous owner changes in design.

We appreciate you considering Alcan Builders for your next commercial construction building project.
