Pidherney’s is preparing to consolidate its Red Deer operations to a single location west of Blackfalds.
The Rocky Mountain House-based company, which specializes in a broad range of construction work, is developing a two-storey, 12,000-square-foot building south of Aspelund Road and west of Hwy 2. It expects to move in by the end of June.
The company currently has facilities in Red Deer’s Edgar Industrial Park and McKenzie Industrial Business Park, south of the city. Charles MacDonald, Pidherney’s civil operations manager, said those operations will relocate to the new building.
He said they consist primarily of the company’s civil operations, although the new premises will also be used by Pidherney’s oilfield operations.
The space is larger than its existing Red Deer premises, with 26 staff expected to work there.
“It will allow us to grow,” added MacDonald.
Pidherney’s civil operations involve work like site grading, infrastructure repair, water and sewer projects, and highway and road construction.
The City of Red Deer is one of its biggest customers, said MacDonald.
In addition to its head office east of Rocky and its Red Deer facilities, Pidherney’s has operations at Fort McMurray and a portable camp at Hinton.
