Doing It Right The First Time

About Howitt

Howitt Construction Ltd. is an earthmoving contractor based out of Red Deer AB. Since starting in 1980’s with a single motor scraper, the company has grown into a general contractor specializing in earthmoving projects and successfully managing those projects. We have completed projects ranging throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia. With a variety of competencies, our experience includes:

  • landfill & lagoon cells,
  • oilfield pad & site preparations,
  • water hub facilities,
  • road construction,
  • industrial & commercial developments,
  • manhole installation, and
  • HDPE pipe installation.

Along with earthmoving services, Howitt provides additional management of various sub-contractors, HDPE liner supply & installation, water and sewer, paving, directional drilling, and barb wire/chain link fence installation. 

We believe people are our greatest asset, they are truly who make the projects successful. Coupled with a solid safety program, we strive to create a strong culture valuing teamwork and safety. Our management team has extensive industry experience and has proven to be innovative when constructing projects. We believe in continually finding newer, more efficient, and cost-effective solutions through collaboration and research. 

The fleet of heavy equipment is continually updated, and many excavators, motor scrapers, dozers and graders are equipped with Trimble® GPS technology. This function allows for expedited communication of design changes between the office and the field and instant feedback of material grades in-situ, resulting in cost and time savings. Howitt has used Trimble® GPS for over 15 years, during that time in house staff have been trained to manage and troubleshoot any issues. Using GPS is automatic for Howitt and is a seamless integration into all our projects.

             Howitt Construction Ltd delivers a customized service of knowledge, flexibility, and earthmoving experience. Through equipment availability and increased production from effective earthmoving processes, we provide quality results.
