The Thiessen Way . . . success. advance. progress.
Thiessen Enterprises hires employees searching for careers. Our business growth has been driven by strong people who are committed to quality workmanship. We look for workers who have a positive outlook and look forward to going to the jobsite.
Who We Are
Thiessen Enterprises Inc. is known for providing superior concrete forming (cribbing) services to the new home, multi-family, infill, and commercial construction industries in Calgary. Thiessen has built a strong reputation based on quality workmanship, professionalism, and service excellence.
Thiessen Enterprises is a member of the Calgary Regional Home Builders Association, and the Alberta Construction Safety Association.
We view each client relationship as a unique partnership. The fast pace of a vibrant Calgary market, constant innovation, and the introduction of new technologies require that subcontractors work closely with homebuilders.
The common goal is to provide the end user – the home buyer - with a quality product. When our customers are successful, we are successful.
We understand that the future of the concrete forming industry depends on maintaining healthy forests and eco systems. Thiessen supports sustainable development by supporting initiatives that insure the long-term sustainability of our resources.
Duraform forms are certified Built Green. Environmentally smart technology means they can be used for more than 3,000 concrete pours. The system is made in Canada of material that out-performs other products in our climate and geography.
Training and Experience
Thiessen Enterprises provides regular safety and skills training programs to maintain high standards of performance. Further, our field crews assemble hundreds of concrete forms every year. They acquire expertise that only jobsite experience can provide.
