We have been installing highmast lighting systems across Ontario for more than two decades, over 700 highmast poles to date. We pioneered many of the techniques used to assemble and install highmast lighting – techniques which are regarded as industry best practice today! Many of the lighting installations and upgrades along the 400 series highways have been completed by Guild.
Airport Runway Lighting and Landing Instrumentation
We are one of the key contractors for the modification and expansion of the runway system at Lester B. Pearson International Airport, Canada’s largest airport. We developed and executed innovative construction methods for the successful installation of complex airport lighting equipment.
Traffic Signal Installations and Systems
When it comes to installing and maintaining traffic signals and systems on urban roads and freeways, we are indisputably the leaders in Canada. With 30 years of notable service to the Metropolitan Toronto Roads and Traffic Department under our belt, we maintain traffic signal installation for the Region of Peel, the City of Mississauga and the City of Brampton on a 24-hour basis, 365 days a year, for the past 26 years. In addition we are under contract to maintain the traffic signal plant for most major centres across southern Ontario
Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS)
We have been implementing Advanced Traffic Management Systems for over two decades. We are one of the prime contributing contractors in the Ministry of Transportation’s expansion of the COMPASS system serving our province’s major freeways.
Conventional Roadway and Parking Lot Lighting
We have installed roadway and parking lot lighting throughout Ontario, for more than 32 years. Think of us on your next visit to the airport, or on your way to take in a ball game: we installed the roadway lighting at Lester B. Pearson Airport’s Terminal 3, and at Toronto’s Rogers Centre.
Guild Electric started in the pavement marking industry as part of a City of Toronto maintenance contract in the mid 1970’s. Since then, Guild has become one of the largest pavement marking contractors in Ontario, serving the GTA and surrounding area. Guild Electric remains the only unionized pavement marking contractor in Ontario. Learn More…
