Special Projects

The Special Projects Division is a group of Professional Engineers and Project Managers with vast experience in every facet of construction and project management which draws from, and combines, all in-house resources to provide exceptional products and client service.


This division specializes in multi-discipline projects involving close coordination with a multitude of subcontractors, utility owners as well as local municipal and provincial traffic operations to ensure the collaborative efforts result in the highest quality, "showcase" projects. A Special Project typically involves underground utility installation, road building, asphalt paving of roads and parking lots, structural installations, coordination of subcontractors and utility owners as well as cost control, scheduling and overseeing the entire project from start up to completion.


Over the years Volker Stevin has forged very strong working relationships with highly skilled subcontractors in earthworks, concrete, landscaping, asphalt milling, fencing, street lighting, retaining walls, irrigation, electrical, metal fabrication, conduit and electronic control systems installation. We take great pride in the mutual respect of these firms and will continue to utilize their expertise as well as avail ourselves to new opportunities and innovative products and technology.
