Ocean Concrete Victoria

Building Greater Victoria for over 100 Years

Ocean Concrete Ltd. (Victoria) has grown from its very early beginnings - in 1939, we delivered the first load of ready-mix concrete on Vancouver Island!

Ocean Victoria originated in 1912 as Evans Coleman and Evans. In 1919 becoming Evans Coleman and Johnson Brothers, and Ocean Cement in the 1960s.

In 1973, after more than 40 years at our inner harbour home at 900 Wharf Street, the company moved the ready-mix business to our current location at 611 Bay Street. Change continued in the 1970s and 1980s: we encompassed a large building supply, block plant, mortar plant and brick and block business.

Today, Ocean Victoria proudly showcases the only state of the art wet batch concrete facility on Vancouver Island – a system that ensures quality and consistency for today’s challenging building specifications, both commercial and residential.

Our plant is able to facilitate large concrete pours and our central location in the downtown core enables us to efficiently and environmentally meet the needs of Southern Vancouver Island contractors.

Our experienced and professional team are skilled at ensuring our concrete is delivered within specification and compliant for all applications of any jobsite requirement.

We value local diversity, and our contributions to a variety of organizations in Greater Victoria are beneficial in helping to build a more vibrant and dynamic community.
