Civil Construction and
Environmental Services

We are Mosquito.
A full service Earth Works company.

Each project we take on is handled with pride for our industry particularly our people, the community and environment we all are a part of. Whether we are breaking ground for a large up-stream oil production facility or we are stabilizing a natural fish bearing stream bank it is treated with the same consideration as it is all connected.

Mosquito is careful in its choice of projects, engaging only when we know we can provide amazing results. We develop business by developing relationships. Strong successful relationships with our clients provided us with opportunities in civil construction and environmental services since 1999. Let us impress you.

The owners of Mosquito have a strong connection to the natural world, leading to a strong sense of responsibility to apply its proven skill set to improve the land and communities in which we live. This goal will be achieved not just fiscally but ethically.

Management is committed to achieve the best possible work life balance for our staff and others in our community. We strive to create a motivated work culture by sourcing like minded individuals who share the goal to thrive in life not just survive. We find the commitment to balance leads to improved production and a positive experience when interacting with Mosquito.

Our HS & E program is externally monitored and in good standing with several governing boards and reporting agencies such as ACSA , ISN Networld, Complyworks, WCB Alberta and WCB Saskatchewan.

It was a challenging project fighting wind and frost conditions to meet a tight schedule. The end result was something we are proud of.

Engineering Firms and General Contractors

Sub-Contracting Services

Often large engineering firms and general contractors call upon us as a subcontractor for the civil construction portion of contracts. We will review any documentation available and provide a fixed cost or an estimate depending on the client’s need. This mutually beneficial relationship works well to provide the seamless synergy needed for today’s complex and demanding projects. Mosquito only wants what it specializes in to help ensure proper results. If we can’t do it effectively we will point a client to someone who will.
