Our Team

Kevin M. Webb, President/ Founder, North Construction Ltd.

604-868-5086
Kevin@North-Construction.com

Kevin Webb’s first and continued passion is Aviation. Initially pursuing a career as a professional pilot at age 19, Kevin became a commercial helicopter pilot at 21. He funded his studies at flight college by working in various sectors of the construction industry.

After several extended trips traveling and working overseas, it was construction that proved to be the core of Kevin’s professional development. Upon his return to Canada he was initially hired as a surveyor/grademan by a Vancouver based heavy civil contractor and quickly rose to senior superintendent. As a young superintendent he gained invaluable experience running large highway, bridge and mountain construction projects exceeding $10m. With this background and a strong aptitude for problem solving, Kevin parlayed his abilities into founding North Construction in 1994.

Since its inception, North Construction has proven to be an industry leader in solution based construction management providing its long list of quality clients with the no excuses results that they have come to expect from the North team.

The highlight of Kevin’s construction career occurred with Vancouver’s hosting of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Kevin and North were retained at the very early stages of the pre-bid process by the Vancouver Organizing Committee. North provided budgetary and design options that were incorporated into the bid package that was submitted to the IOC and that ultimately made Vancouver the winning Bid City.

On July 2, 2003 Vancouver was awarded the honour of being host city for the 2010 games. North was tasked with the design and construction of seven venue sites and the North teams success as VANOC’s “go to guys” for resolving numerous last minute transportation and logistical problems was rewarded with overseeing games operations for the Freestyle, Snowboarding and Mogul venues. With Olympic revenues exceeding 30 million dollars, Kevin still takes great pride in the fact that he and the North team were a critical part of the great success of the 21st Winter Olympics.

Kevin continues to push himself and the company to ensure that North is the most trusted, creative and effective solutions provider for challenging heavy civil construction undertakings and remedial projects in North America.
