Marnevic Construction Ltd.
Marnevic is a family owned company that has been in Fox Creek since 1968. We pride ourselves on offering excellent customer service with a strong focus on safety. We also believe that, if you consider the total package that Marnevic offers, you will be hard pressed to find a contractor that offers better overall value.
Some of the value added services that we offer are:
Since we are local, Marnevic does not charge subsistence for jobs in the Fox Creek area. This can be a cost savings of approximately $15/hour or moredepending upon shift length.
Marnevic’s office, shop and management are all based in Fox Creek. This means we are very familiar with the area and are close at hand to deal with any issues that arise. As an example, when equipment breaks down we are usually able to repair or replace it the same day to minimize any delay caused to your job. As well, this allows us to be extremely flexible and quickly adapt to changing situations; such as providing last minute tow cat operators, suddenly increasing/decreasing the size of the crew required & utilizing our extensive group of subcontractors.
We’ve had the same core crew working for our company for several years. They are extremely familiar with the area and what it takes to get the job done properly and effectively.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL:
Our office has an extensive auditing system that helps ensure the details are looked after. This includes everything from triple checking daily time tickets for accuracy to ensuring our subcontractors provide current WCB and insurance documents. You can rest easy knowing that we’ve taken care of the details.
We have an extensive list of local subcontractors who have passed our rigorous pre-screening requirements. These contractors are very familiar with Marnevic’s requirements and, since we pay them every two weeks, they prefer working for us. This means that we are often able to obtain services even when it is extremely busy. This includes equipment we own (gravel trucks, lowboys, etc) and equipment we do not own (rubber-tired hoes, picker trucks, etc.).
If we build your lease we do not charge standby to leave a machine sit on location unless specifically requested to do so. Most of the time we are able to leave a winch cat on location after the lease is built to help the rig move on. This reduces mobilization costs. We are also usually able to leave that winch cat on location while the rig is there in case towing is required. When we do this we do not charge standby and only charge for the hours that an operator is actually on location.
Most of our equipment is less than 10 years old. All of our equipment is repaired to manufacturer’s specifications by our staff of journeyman mechanics and welders. This means fewer break-downs, less risk to the environment, and fewer delays in getting the job done.
ONE STOP SHOP:
From building the access & site, to towing the rig onto location, to maintaining the access & site once it is in production we can look after it all. We also have several gravel pits in the area and can supply material from the closest pit to help control hauling costs. The fact that we own a brand new gravel crusher ensures that we can offer a wide variety of products at a reasonable price to our customers.
Marnevic has had its own, custom designed safety program for approximately 20 years. This program has grown and changed over the years while continuously improving. For the last 5 years, Marnevic’s safety performance has been significantly better than the industry average. To help ensure the continued success of our safety program we employ a full-time, certified National Construction Safety Officer.
