mining sites,
without the complication.


Learn how Robertson Building Systems helped First Colbalt Corp. expand their cobalt refinery facility in the Timiskaming District of Ontario.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned over our 150 years in the industry, it’s that not all mining operations are created equal.

Robertson Building Systems specializes in planning and designing complex metal building solutions for the mining industry. With North American supply and local-level support, our networks and expertise have helped contractors design and erect sophisticated building systems that last in Canada’s most remote locations.

Whatever your mining operations require, you can trust Robertson to deliver on time and on budget.



A leading
national network

Timing is everything on mining sites. Downtime is costly. We have over 80 manufacturing facilities strategically located across North America and an integrated supply chain to keep you on schedule.

Over 150 years
of experience

We’ve been around for as long as the Canadian mining industry has. We know what’s at stake for you, and what it takes to be successful in harsh Canadian climates.

Unmatched craftsmanship
and accreditations

Our pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMBs), components and facilities are evaluated and accredited to ensure Canadian and U.S. standards. And then we do our own testing to confirm they meet our high standards for safety and durability.



When First Cobalt Corp. (now Electra Battery Materials) announced plans to refurbish and expand their cobalt refinery facility in Ontario’s remote Timiskaming District, they needed a team that could deliver – and do it quickly.

Learn how Robertson Building Systems, alongside TESC Contracting Company Ltd. worked to design and supply a large, durable, and affordable pre-engineered metal building that integrated with their pre-purchased process equipment.
