Construction

At Knelsen, we aim to provide our clients with top-level quality and service. With many years of experience, Knelsen is your respected and trusted partner for completing your construction projects. We specialize in heavy civil construction including highway and municipal as well as private development projects.

In addition to having portable asphalt & concrete plants available that we can bring to any site, we also produce our products at fixed locations throughout Alberta. These products are tested regularly at our quality control testing laboratories that reassure you are receiving top-quality products in the work we perform.

Highway Construction

New Highway Construction

Where no previous roadway exists, Knelsen gathers its team of experts to form a safe and sturdy foundation. Once the foundation is layered with a compacted granular base, our paving crews are sent out with asphalt from our plants and place it following the specified engineered design.

Intersection & Turnout Treatment

Years after a highway is constructed, a new turning lane or rest area may be required. After assessing and confirming the equivalent grade and compaction of the existing highway, Knelsen’s team of experts will construct a sub-grade. It is then topped with a compacted granular base for our paving crews to come to lay the hot mix asphalt taken from our very own asphalt plants.

Modeling & Paving

To ensure driver safety, existing roads may need to be rebuilt over time due to ongoing environmental factors. Depending on the existing road surface, this could involve reshaping, re-establishing grade, or compacting the road surface and adding GBC or our paving crew placing new asphalt.

Overlay Paving

Over time, you may see signs of minor surface damage to your pavement including small cracks, rutting, potholes, depression caused by large vehicles, and water damage. In these cases, resurfacing may be needed. We have several paving crews that can come in and place new asphalt according to the specified engineered design and or our clients wishes.

Municipal Construction

Streets & Subdivisions

Knelsen Sand and Gravel’s municipal crew is a team of experienced, trained individuals able to meet your design needs. Whether you need a new or existing street or subdivision constructed, Knelsen has the team for it.

Recreational Trails

Wide or narrow trails, Knelsen has a line of smaller equipment to get the job done. We use our own in-house asphalt mix for all the work we do, to give you a quality product that we are confident will last.

Private Development

Parking Lots

Knelsen provides parking lot construction services for small and major parking lot projects. With rainfall and snowmelt in mind, we arrange a design that allows for proper water drainage. Once the area is capped with GBC following the engineer’s or clients design, our paving crew comes in to place asphalt.
