25 YEARS AND STILL BUILDING BETTER
For 25 years, Ruskin Construction has been providing clients across North America with quality construction services, bringing unique ideas, and extensive experience, to each of our projects.
Founded by Andrew Purdey in 1989, Ruskin Construction was started on the simple goal of becoming the best bridge builder in the market.
With just a single crew, Ruskin began building log crib bridges for the Forestry industry. Since then, the company – named for Purdey’s hometown of Ruskin, BC – has developed into a privately held construction company specializing not only in temporary resource bridges, but also permanent and highway structures, a variety of foundation options, marine construction, railway refurbishment, aerial pipeline installation and heavy civil construction.
Currently employing more than 250 professionals, Ruskin provides $100M in annual construction services to the Oil and Gas, Forestry, Transportation, and Mining industries. Ruskin’s growth has been fueled by a focus on our core principles – safety, quality, and production. It’s this commitment to excellence that has brought back clients year after year.
In the 25 years since Ruskin first envisioned its future, we have become a company that can react to change, identify opportunities and deliver on commitments. Ruskin is trusted and recognized within the industry, and we remain dedicated to ensuring we are a sustainable company that is client and market diversified.
We re-write our history with every job we complete, and with every new job we start. Ruskin has an outstanding track record and the best people in the business. We build many things, but what we are proudest of building is our reputation. It got us started in 1989 and it keeps us going today.
