Mission Statement

“WBS Construction commits to working together with its clients to determine their building project objectives. We share our knowledge and experience with integrity and in a professional manner. Our challenge is to maintain the highest quality standards while we maintain deadlines. Our ultimate goal is to make the experience an enjoyable one.”


We believe strong companies are built on a quality product followed by a strong culture and capped off with a great experience. Our company culture is built upon the following four pillars:

Our Greatest Asset – People

In any industry we believe people are a company’s greatest asset, and this is truly the case in the construction industry. Quality people deliver quality buildings. With over 35 years in construction management, we have people with the experience to identify design efficiency, to lead teams effectively during construction and who understand that your satisfaction is key to our next project.

Our investment in our people goes beyond job specific training to include our annual weekend where employees and their families can enjoy a weekend on us and all our staff (no matter their position) get leadership training to ensure a commitment to quality excellence is combined with the leadership thinking that results in a first-rate experience for you.

COR Certified/Safety

COR_logoOur first culture pillar is a commitment to family and this commitment means a commitment to safety. As a certified COR company we believe in the importance of safety and know a safe company promotes a better work environment for your project.


WBS Construction was started in 1979 by two brothers, Harv and Alvin Thiessen. Shortly after opening, the brothers purchased a lumberyard called Winkler Building Supplies with the intent of growing their construction company. In time however, they realized their passion was for construction management, and so they sold the lumberyard to give their complete attention to building. The sale of the lumberyard resulted in a company name change and WBS Construction was introduced to the market with the new name developed from the first three letters of the lumberyard.

With a commitment to people, excellence, integrity and community the company has grown significantly and today offers all its clients the combination of large scale commercial experience delivered through small town prairie values and work ethic.
