The evolution of Northstar Sharp's Foundation Specialist
By Deb Smith
Two of Alberta’s most respected names in deep foundations have amalgamated to form one comprehensive solution to Western Canada’s foundation construction industry: Northstar Sharp’s Foundation Specialists.
For more than 30 years, Sharp’s Construction Services Ltd. operated as a specialized sub-contractor out of Leduc, Alta. They provided foundation solutions across Canada specializing in large-diameter drilling and concrete piles. Meanwhile, established in 2005 in Clairmont, Alta., Northstar Energy Services Inc. focused on driven and helical piling, serving oil and gas, civil/industrial, commercial and the transmission and distribution industries. Looking at a total of more than 80 years of management and senior operator experience between them, it made sense for the two companies to join forces, and in February 2017, that is what they officially did.
