Construction is the process of constructing a building or infrastructure. Construction differs from manufacturing in that manufacturing typically involves mass production of similar items without a designated purchaser, while construction typically takes place on location for a known client.
North Star’s story started back in 1998 with 1 bobcat and an entrepreneurial desire. President, Owner and Founder of North Star, Steve Skiba, had a vision to be one of the largest civil contractors in Calgary. North Star has grown exponentially in the last 23 years, like any company we’ve had our ups and downs, but we are on track to continue growing and do great things. Working alongside some of Calgary’s largest development corporations, we are thrilled with every opportunity because we understand that sometimes there are doors and sometimes a small window, but we make the most of every experience.
From 1 bobcat 22 years ago we are now a company with over 200 employees working in the Underground Utilities Industry as well as the Paving, Concrete, Grading, and Earthworks; combined we are a full-service civil contracting company. Our superintendents and foremen have years of experience in the industry; however we pride ourselves in being a young empowered company with a growth strategy to be different. We believe we have the best employees, who collectively work toward the vision of North Star. The culture we’ve created allows North Star to have high expectations and the result is quality, professional work that we deliver consistently.
