LAVERGNE CONSTRUCTION (1988) LTD. PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE
From it's early beginnings in 1933, Lavergne Construction has operated under several names, but the service has stayed the same. The company started as Lahey Construction, Powell Construction in 1964, Lavergne Construction in 1977 and finally incorporated as Lavergne Construction (1988) Ltd. when Brent Lavergne took presidency.
Over the years Lavergne Construction has provided a vast variety of services to not only the Peace River area, but all of Alberta, the Northwest Territories, northeast British Columbia and northwest Saskatchewan. The company primarily focuses on commercial construction and renovations, but over the years has expanded into fire and flood restoration work for numerous insurance companies. Thus beginning these endeavors, the staff has become fully certified in water damage restoration, odor control, fire and smoke restoration and mold abatement and control.
With over 20 years of service Lavergne Construction's main customers have come to consist of the RCMP, Public Works and Government Services Canada, Health Canada, Alberta Infrastructure, ATB Financial and the insurance industry. The company takes a great deal of pride, not only in being the preferred contractor for the above employers, but also in the projects they have completed in the community.
A few examples of the company's local projects include Tim Horton's, Dairy Queen, the West Hill Dental Clinic, the Misery Mountain Ski Chalet, ATCO Gas and the Lavergne Plaza located on Main Street, Peace River. Renovations to the ATCO Electric building, Associate Medical office, ATB Financial, Peace Valley Inns Executive Suites and The Pub and Smitty's Restaurant are just a few other examples of the company's Peace River projects over the years.
In addition to the services that Lavergne Construction provides directly, it's sister companies are also very active in the province. Brent's Auto Glass, located in Grimshaw, specializes in the supply and installation of commercial, residential and auto glass, while Total Flooring & Finishes Ltd., located in downtown Peace River, specializes in the supply and installation of all types of flooring, as well as, stocking paint, paint accessories, wall paper and window coverings.
