Nordmin Group adds construction services business

"With changes in the industry it is clear to us that the mining and industrial sectors need a company like Nordmin Constructors that can efficiently execute projects from start to finish, maintaining focus, safety, budget and schedule."


The Nordmin Group, based in Thunder Bay, Ont., has  announced the creation of Nordmin Constructors Inc., a company focused on providing full engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) solutions to the mining and industrial sectors across North America and around the world.

The new Constructors business joins Nordmin Engineering Ltd. which was founded in 2005 by Chris Dougherty.

In a news release making the announcement, the company notes that “Constructors is the manifestation of Engineering’s existing efforts in the industry, but expanded to include full construction management and general contracting services to streamline projects and improve efficiency.”

Constructors operates as a sister company rather than a division of Nordmin Engineering.

“Nordmin Engineering Ltd. has provided EPC and EPCM services for the last many years, stopping short of operating as a full general contractor. However, with changes in the industry it is clear to us that the mining and industrial sectors need a company like Nordmin Constructors that can efficiently execute projects from start to finish, maintaining focus, safety, budget and schedule,” says Dougherty, chairman of the Nordmin Group, in the release.

“Our focus is efficiency and fit for project solutions, not maximizing our hours and fees on a project.”

Nordmin Constructors Inc. will be led by mining industry veteran Micheal Mayhew, formerly vice president, operations with AMC Contractors and Dumas Mining.

“This is a very exciting development for me and for the Nordmin Group. We are building on the 14 years of effort at Nordmin Engineering and have many opportunities before us to make Nordmin Constructors a major player and provide the mining and industrial sectors with a positive alternative to “big project team” thinking that is both safe and efficient,” says Mayhew in the release.

The Nordmin Group of Companies has offices in Sudbury, Ont., Kamloops, B.C. and Salt Lake City, Utah.
