Stanley Tkachuk, founder

In 1962, Stanley Tkachuk and Otto Aback saw the need for concrete services in the heart of oilfield country and, using their second initials, formed A&T Construction Ltd. At the time, the price of gas at the pumps was 31 cents and a loaf of bread could be purchased for under a quarter. They started working at their downtown Lac La Biche location in 1965.

In the early 1970s, Stanley saw the potential in Conklin and established a remote concrete operation there. As crazy as highway 881 is today, just imagine this: in the early '70s, everything had to hauled to Conklin by train in the summer and on ice roads in the winter. A&T traveled those roads often and became very successful working for many of the larger oilfield companies of the era, including Dome Oil, Home Oil and AAMACO.

Brian Tkachuk joined his dad at the family business in 1977 and helped him struggle through the economic recession. In 1980, he purchased the company's first ready-mix batch plant and personally trucked it home from Brownwood, Texas to the downtown Lac La Biche location. The new plant allowed them to expand and take on large-scale projects like water treatment plants, arena and airport runways.

Meanwhile, while Stanley and Brian's business prospered, they watched with pride as Brian's brother Grant Tkachuk had success in a completely different business - hockey. Grant was drafted to the Buffalo Sabres in 1987 where he played for two memorable seasons.

Brian took over A&T Construction from Stanley in 1992 and continued to grow the company his dad had begun.

1997 was a landmark year, as A&T Construction completed the very first ICF (insulated concrete form) house in the Lac La Biche area, with many more to come.

In 2007 after a few years of batching and hauling concrete, Brian's son Wade  became a part owner of the company, becoming a 3rd generation family owned business. 

A&T Construction soon outgrew its location in town, so in 2008 Brian make two key decisions; first, he relocated the old ready-mix plant to a key location in Conklin; second, he purchased a new larger plant to be located on a larger section of land just west of town, where the business is located today. Under Brian and Wade's leadership and with their decades of experience, A&T Construction aims to have a very successful next 50 years of business, and beyond.
