In 1980 two brothers took a chance and started a paving company. During those early years they faced many challenges but with hard work and perseverance they were able to survive and grow the company. This growth led them to purchase a concrete company so they could satisfy the needs of their customers and the market.
Today, ALSA Road Construction is run by a group of engineers, and has developed valuable relationships within the Calgary business community. ALSA has achieved industry recognition as a trusted and reliable civil contractor within the road construction industry, from past and existing partners and citizens in the communities they serve.
No matter the size of our workforce, ALSA Road Construction continues to prioritize family values and maintain the personalization of a family-run business. We believe that providing the best customer experience needs to start with our employees. We continue to put our people first, and this approach has proven time and again to drive everything else, increasing customer satisfaction and allowing us to meet or exceed expectations.
Our ALSA Road Construction family is supported by provided profit sharing to all levels of employees, health benefits for all staff (even seasonal workers), and contributions to staff pension plans to take care of our ALSA family for years to come.
ALSA Road Construction has always had strong ties to our community and we continue to contribute in a variety of ways. We are proud sponsors of foundations such as Grow Calgary, Alpha House, Ronald McDonald House, Arts Commons, Hull Services, University of Calgary and the Schulich School of Engineering, we understand the importance of giving back to our community.
We are avid supporters of the Arts in Calgary, happy to support those artists that bring us joy. We strongly believe that by supporting talented individuals in the pursuit of their craft, we all benefit and are all made better for it.
Vision on Sustainability
At every level of ALSA Road Construction we aim to protect the environment for our families and future generations to enjoy. We begin by reducing our carbon footprint at every level of our business. Starting with our shop and offices, we have installed solar panels to meet our electrical needs for lights and heating, an indoor atrium to keep our air fresh and clean, a rain collection system for use within the office, and encourage the use of natural light whenever possible. Our sustainability practices include improved technologies for our machinery and processes, reducing the use of non-renewable energy sources, and recycling materials for use in our products and services.
We are always developing improvements for our construction waste management systems, be it finding less invasive techniques, the use of more renewable materials, or ways to increase the amount of material to be reused and recycled. We have a rigid equipment maintenance system in place to ensure that our machinery is running as efficiently as possible, and each employee shares the responsibility of helping us to maintain these standards.
We aim to lead by example within our industry and within our ALSA Family. Our practices are always growing and changing to reduce our environmental impact, and these efforts are then trickled down into the personal lives of our team.
