Wood is a global leader in the delivery of project engineering and technical services to energy and industrial markets. Wood operates in more than 60 countries, employing approximately 60,000 people.

Wood’s history in Saskatchewan dates back to 1952, when BB Torchinsky & Associates was founded by Ben Torchinsky. Ben was previously an Associate Professor in the Civil Engineering Department of the College of Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan. Ben’s research focused swelling soils common to the City of Regina area, and its effects on buildings constructed on shallow foundations, resulting in cracks and quick deterioration. Through his findings, he was instrumental in developing a deep pile foundation system improving the stability and longevity of buildings impacted by swelling soils.

Wood’s Environment & Infrastructure Solutions (E&IS) provides a full range of services across the following sectors: government, industrial, mining, oil & gas, pharmaceutical, power / clean energy, transportation and water. In Saskatchewan, E&IS operates out of Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert, where our multi-discipline experts provide diversified services across the life cycle of our customers’ assets including Environmental Remediation, Public Infrastructure, Geotechnical & Materials, and Environmental Sciences.

Dennis first joined the Saskatchewan Ready Mix Concrete Association (SRMCA) in 1999 because of his great interest in concrete. Dennis is presently the chairperson of the Concrete Sask technical committee.  Dennis was instrumental in updating and developing the Plant Certification program for Concrete Sask producer members, reviewing CSA technical information to aid producer members in understanding and keep up to date with the latest standards, providing review and guidance of technical issues, testing issues, project specifications and any related concrete issues that producer members may have.

Dean Loewen

Masterbuilders

I have been in the concrete industry for 30 years, started driving a mixer truck in rural Alberta and eventually was the plant manager for a small ready mix producer and gravel producer. 19 years ago a job posting for a sales rep in Saskatchewan for Master Builders was posted. Luckily I was the candidate. I took over sales for Saskatchewan, the following year I was granted sales also for Manitoba and Northwest Ontario. In the 19 years being employed in admixtures sales and technical support I have met some amazing people, most becoming close friends. With evolving admixtures and concrete specs makes my position very challenging. Have been on the board of directors with Concrete Sask for 17 years.

I have logged over 1.5 million kilometers in my career with close to 3000 nights in hotel rooms. This would not be possible without the support from the people in my life, AKA Rhonda and Minnie. We reside at the Lake of the Prairies outside of Roblin Manitoba, where it is peaceful and a great place to wind down on the weekends.

Dan Dielschneider

Lafarge

I got into the redi-mix industry in 2005 with the purchase of an small company called U-Cart Concrete.  It was a scary endeavour,  because all I knew about concrete was that it Got Hard. I came from a trucking background, and none of these jobs involved concrete. I didn't even know how to operate a concrete truck, but all of a sudden I owned  three of them. The first year was crazy, but I loved every moment, and never looked back. I went on to build a great business over the next ten years that caught the eye of a larger company called  Western Redi-mix from Saskatoon. Eventually sold to Western and ran the operation in Regina.

Outside of my work life I get involved with too many hobbies. Everything from snowmobiling, atving, to hunting and fishing. The number one hobby is spending time out at the lake on the pontoon boat. I encourage people to try something they never have done before. I didn't have any idea of how the concrete industry worked, but jumped into it anyway. This decision turned out to be the best life lesson, and career choice I ever made.
