Day Construction started in 1952 when Tony and his brother Willie bought a DC4 CAT. Tony only ran it when he wasn’t working rigs or on the farm. Tony moved to the Carnduff area in 1956, leaving Willie the CAT to run.
In 1979 Tony thought that having a CAT to help move rigs was the only thing to do, so he purchased a D7E CAT from Cameron Collins and started to do lease work as there were no CATS around. As there were not too many dozers around at that time, when the dozer wasn’t working on rig moves Tony put it to work on lease construction. Tony has increased his construction equipment to four DC8 Cats, five D7’s, four D6’s, and one D9, graders, excavators, scrapers, and the Iron Wolf.
In a few years there was enough work out there to build on the construction end of the business and more equipment was acquired. In 1983 Day Construction was incorporated and grew into a company that has steadily employed between twelve and twenty five employees.
Over the years Day Construction has worked for many companies including:
- Canadian Natural Resources Ltd
- NAL Resources
- Canetic Resources
- Penn West
- Postell Energy
- And many others.
