Our pioneering spirit has put us on the cutting edge of construction for decades, ranging from the development of rail plowing methods to install fiber optics in the 1980s to our record-setting directional drills and state-of-the-art paving techniques we use today.
Most importantly, we understand that we cannot rest on our past successes. Each and every day, we make it a priority to seek out further innovative techniques that drive the industries in which we work. This means safer and more efficient construction methods that we apply to our day-to-day operations.
Construction today is fast paced! This requires a great deal of coordination between a range of organizations that often have competing priorities.
It doesn’t have to be this way!
The diverse services and collective strengths that Michels delivers is changing the face of construction. Our integrated approach and teamwork highlight our ability to overcome projects with tight timelines, tough environmental issues and increased focus on safety. We are fortunate to be able to count on our own in-house experts. This saves our customers incredible amounts of time, money and frustration. Our seamless approach also carries over to the safety, environmental and QA/QC sectors, where we are able to directly hold our own people accountable to our uniformly high standards.
Whether building a wind farm, compressor station or pipeline, we self-perform all critical construction operations from beginning to end. Michels is transforming the way construction works.
