Since 1938, Pioneer Construction has been building and maintaining roads and highways across Northern Ontario. From logging and access roads to site development for industrial and commercial sites, to highway construction and paving, and open pit mining, Pioneer Construction has built up a diverse portfolio with main offices in Sudbury, North Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, Thunder Bay and Kenora.

Pioneer Construction was recently awarded both the MTO (Ontario Ministry of Transportation) Paver of the Year Award and Community Leadership Award at the Ontario Road Builders Association (ORBA) convention in Toronto on February 6, 2018.

Formed in 1927, ORBA has been the voice of the road building industry, representing the interests of contractors and goods and service providers, which employ over 30,000 workers in Ontario. Since that time, ORBA has become the leading advocate of Ontario’s massive transportation infrastructure industry that spans over 16,900 kilometres of provincial highways alone.

The MTO Paver of the Year Award recognizes one provincial winner and three provincial finalists each year. In the past eight years Pioneer Construction has been named a provincial finalist six times. This year, Pioneer Construction was proud to accept the award for MTO Paver of the Year award for highway work they performed in Sioux Narrows. This award is presented to organizations that show excellence in hot-mix paving and projects are judged on a number of criteria such as smoothness, night paving, completion, workmanship and mix quality. Delivering high quality results under difficult conditions and in remote areas is what Pioneer Construction does best.

Pioneer Construction is also proud to announce that they have been awarded the Ontario Road Builders Association (ORBA) Community Leadership Award for all their work at Kivi Park.
