years of success
Sewer & Water
Borland maintains a fleet of backhoes, wheeled excavators, and loaders to complement pipe jacking, pilot tube micro-tunnelling and other boring equipment that is already Borland owned or easily rented/purchased. Borland’s list of projects includes tunnels, water mains, land drainage and wastewater sewers, leachate collection systems, reservoirs, aqueducts, box culverts, and stormwater retention lakes and outfalls.
Borland’s knowledge of Manitoba’s soil conditions complements its expertise in both open-cut and trenchless techniques. Borland has direct experience with the trenchless installation of pipe diameters from 15 to 2100 mm with single shot lengths over 110m.
Borland maintains excellent relationships with subcontractors who provide coring, drilling, testing and other services that Borland does not provide in-house.
Borland operates two quarries in Stonewall and several gravel pits, the largest
While much of Borland’s production supplies its paving operations, Borland also sells to other construction companies, concrete suppliers, landscapers, the Province, and nearby municipalities, including Winnipeg. Borland’s commitment to lead the industry in quality and loading efficiency has won over many customers who have reduced their hauling and placing costs.
Borland operates two plants:
- a drum mix plant in Winnipeg rated over 230 tonnes per hour with over 400 tonnes of silo storage; and
- a mobile drum mix plant rated over 350 tonnes per hour to supply large highway projects.
Both plants are outfitted with pollution control devices, can incorporate recycled materials into the mix, and can produce conventional and “warm mix” asphalt mixes. While most of Borland’s asphalt is made for its own jobs, Borland sells to a variety of external customers who value Borland’s quality and dependability.
Borland maintains a large fleet of equipment including spreaders, transfer machines, rollers, distributors, semi-trailers and tandems, that are used for a wide variety of projects including parking lots, subdivisions, residential and arterial streets, highways and airports.
Borland owns over 500 pieces of equipment including loaders, graders, track backhoes, track loaders, vibratory packers, dozers, pipe jacking/boring machines, mills and full depth reclaimers. Borland also owns, operates and maintains a fleet of over 40 semi-trailers, tandem trucks and low-beds.
In addition to pavements and underground utilities, Borland’s equipment and expertise have been used for:
- private and public snow clearing contracts;
- building pad and foundation work;
- installation and removal of work pads in water bodies;
- stabilization and armouring of riverbanks.

- the Southwest Rapid Transit & Pembina Hwy Underpass;
- the award winning Disraeli Bridges Project.
