Miners Construction was incorporated in 1911 by Charlie M. Miners of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The company enjoys the distinction of being one of the oldest established commercial contracting firms in the province.
The present management was led by Howard J. Stensrud until his passing in December of 2013. Howard was originally hired in 1950 as time-keeper by Mr. Miners. Mr. Stensrud remained very active in the day-to-day operations of the company and was an outstanding member of the construction industry as well as being tremendously involved in the community. He recently received The Order of Canada for his lifelong community service. After his passing his son Michael Stensrud took over the reins of the company. Mr. Stensrud joined the family run business in 1978. Over the past 36 years, Michael has held many positions including carpenter, carpenter foreman, site supervisor, estimator, project manager and now President and General Manager.
Miners Construction has retained a core of employees of approximately 70 strong over the last 25 years with temporary labour being employed as required given project requirements. We believe the quality of workmanship and dedication of our employees is second to none. The company is not unionized and has implemented long term disability and profit sharing with our long term employees.
All Construction superintendents have and do receive continuing training in WHMIS, construction safety and Saint John’s Ambulance first aid training with the intent of keeping the job sites as safe as possible. We recently received a Merit Rebate Award from Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board for maintaining a safe work environment over the preceding 3 years.
The company sales over the past five years have varied depending on the economic climate and range between 25 and 40 million dollars annually.
