EngCon is the selected underground utilities contractor for the Jensen Lakes Subdivision located in the City of St. Albert. We have been working there from the project’s inception and are currently still active in the area. Jensen Lakes is a large scale land development project, which includes the construction of residential lots, commercial sites, sewer lift stations, stormwater management facilities and a unique freshwater lake.


The pipe sizes we have installed range from small diameter 100mm service pipes up to large diameter 1800mm storm trunk sewer lines. These pipes have been installed up to 10m deep in challenging ground conditions.


We always strive to meet the project’s schedule and budgets and to date we have successfully been accomplishing this goal.


The City of St. Albert’s ESC program, through IBI Group, was implemented and effectively followed throughout construction from CCC and is currently on-going.


The Jensen Lakes area now includes many residents and occupied commercial properties, which are sensitive to new construction. When working in these occupied areas, EngCon continues to adhere to local by-laws and is understanding and considerate to all residents. We treat the areas as if we were living there ourselves.
