2018 Industry Partnership Award
Founded in 1890, Sundt Construction, Inc. is one of the country’s largest and most respected general contractors. The100 percent employee-owned company was named the nation’s safest construction company by the Associated General Contractors of America in 2006 and 2016. The company’s employee-owners are united around a single purpose: to build environments where our clients, employee-owners and communities prosper. Sundt builds projects in a collaborative environment, using best-in-class techniques to improve productivity, reduce costs, and deliver successful results for our clients.
Sundt serves clients in the mining, water, waste water, power, cement, chemical and manufacturing industries. Sundt solves the most complex industrial construction challenges and has a long, distinguished history of serving industrial construction clients across the U.S. and around the world.
Our trade work includes earthwork, underground utilities, concrete, structural steel erection, process mechanical, equipment setting and boilermaker work. These resources are used on mines, power generation facilities, industrial projects, and treatment plant facilities. Our equipment services owns, operates and maintains more than 100 pieces of heavy equipment that are an integral component of our self-perform work capabilities.
Our safety program is designed to support and maintain a positive safety culture while improving Sundt’s overall safety record, which is already among the best in the industry. Most construction safety programs focus on the "how" of staying safe – processes and procedures to avoid accidents and injuries and keep projects running smoothly. Sundt’s safety program, called “Safety By Choice”, takes a different approach by giving equal emphasis to the "why" of safety. In addition to providing thorough, state-of-the-art construction safety training to our craft employees, we also focus on the many reasons they want and need to stay safe: their families, friends, health, livelihood and the ability to do their favorite activities.
Sundt has a long tradition of helping the communities where its employees live and work. Its Foundation is well known for supporting charities that provide services to disadvantaged adults and children. Its employees also volunteer to repair homes, build new facilities and participate in a variety of fundraising events such as charity walks and donation drives.
