Incorporated on August 14, 1992, Teranorth Construction & Engineering Limited rapidly became a major Ontario contractor in the road building industry. The combination of construction experience, sound engineering and a core group of dedicated, hardworking and loyal employees are the primary reasons for its continued success.
The company has completed a diversity of projects ranging from smaller specialized projects to large provincial and municipal infrastructure. Examples of the company’s earlier projects include a sewer and water project in Sudbury, a rifle range in Burwash, tunnels under Highway 11 in Engleheart, a water treatment plant in Chapleau, a sewage lagoon in Manitoulin Island, bridge rehabilitations in Fort Francis, Atikokan, Deux Rivieres, Chalk River, Nipigon, bridge replacements in Timmins, Temagami, Webbwood. The company subsequently expanded its operations to include larger provincial and municipal capital projects, such as a highway interchange on Hwy 400/38 Wahta, Hwy 17/Long Lake Road Sudbury, a long span walkway structure over Hwy 11/17 North Bay, structures along the four lane construction on Hwy 17 Echo Bay and Sault Ste. Marie and the rehabilitation of the Hwy 11/17 Nipigon River bridge, just to name a few.
Teranorth Construction & Engineering Limited completed the final link of the four laning of Hwy 11 near Burk’s Falls, Ontario, and the first phase of the four laning of Hwy 11/17 between Thunder Bay and Nipigon in 2012. By the end of the 2013 construction season Teranorth completed three structures in the Wawa area, two structures in Chaput Hughes and Murdock River Bridge on Hwy 607. By the end of 2014, we've completed three structures in the Sault Ste. Marie, two structures in Atikokan, Leeburn Creek Bridge (Hyw 638) and Ivanhoe River Bridge (Hwy 101).

By the end of 2015 construction season, Teranorth completed bridge projects in Sioux Lookout and the Thunder Bay area, as well as various roads in the townships of Armour and Strong, and a CPR overhead bridge in Webbwood. Teranorth is nearing completion on a major section of the four-laning of Hwy 69 near Alban. Teranorth at this time also started major civil works to construct tailings management dams at Detour Lake mine site in the far northeastern part of Ontario.

Also started this season is work at Detour Lake on a new tailing management dam, and realignment of a Section of Hwy 17 east of Dryden along the Revell River.
