A Proven Track Record Of Success. Iron Woman Construction and Environmental Services (Iron Woman) is a Native American-owned, asset-based company with more than 230 employees and a proven track record of success. Founded in 1999 with the redevelopment of the Stapleton International Airport, Iron Woman has grown into an environ- mental and civil general contractor that can self-perform: environmental consulting and remediation; mining services; solid and hazardous waste transportation; water, sanitary, and stormwater utility installation; and civil construction (site development services). Iron Woman’s ability to work collaboratively with owners, strategic partners, and local, state, and federal regulators results in accelerated and comprehensive solutions for our customers’ most complex problems. Our environmental expertise combined with our extensive civil experience empowers Iron Woman to identify value-engineering opportunities and resolve constructibility issues prior to the construction phase of the project.
Our Mission: Safely and effectively deploy our resources every day to exceed the expectation of our customers in delivering our core products and services. Safety and quality are at the core of our business model and that mind-set is reflected everyday with every crew and every employee – from project kickoff to project closeout. Iron Woman has worked closely with private and commercial sector clients, as well as numerous municipal, state, and federal agencies, to successfully complete over $350 million in utility, environmental remediation and restoration, and construction-transportation projects throughout the Denver metropolitan area and across the western United States. Iron Woman has five main business lines:
Environmental provides full service environmental services, including assessment, site remediation, and restoration services. Leveraging our utilities, trucking and civil capabilities, Iron Woman supports complex contaminated property redevelopment projects. We are organized to pursue projects where environmental contamination exists in construction, redevelopment, and compliance projects. Iron Woman also specializes in stream and river restoration, including design support services and turnkey construction.
Utilities crews focus on open-cut, wet utility installation projects ranging from residential developments and municipal projects to mass transit and right-of-way sites. Iron Woman installs water distribution systems as large as 60-inch welded steel transmission lines; sanitary sewer mains consisting of both gravity and force main applications with depths up to 40 feet; storm sewer collection and storage systems including concrete box culverts, boulder drop structures, cast-in-place structures, flat work and RCP, CMP or PVC collection systems; and dewatering system installation and management consisting of wellpoints, earth berms, lined ponds, and sheet pile containment
Civil focuses on excavation and site development services. This includes providing excavation/earthwork, fire line, sanitary, storm and domestic water service, for commercial and multifamily residential projects. Iron Woman provides turnkey site services using our three dedicated crews, along with our trusted sub-contractors and partners, for erosion control, demolition, complete earthwork packages, flatwork, and asphalt. Additionally, we provide railroad construction services for new infrastructure, derailments, emergency services, and repairs.
Trucking owns and operates a fleet of more than 100 trucks and trailers including side-dumps, end-dumps (material and demolition), belly-dumps, flatbeds, lowboys, tandems, and water trucks. More than 90 percent of Iron Woman drivers have special certifications and training – such as asbestos-awareness and HAZWOPER – to meet our customers’ safety and production needs.
Mining services includes drilling, blasting, mucking, excavation, tunneling, final grading, demolition, underground site construction set-up, dewatering, bulkhead construction, reclamation, as well as miscel- laneous mine services.
Iron Woman’s safety culture is based on trust, communication and strategic recognition of safe behaviors. Every Iron Woman field employee is required to participate in safety related documentation at regular intervals. These tasks promote employee engagement and management commitment. On a daily basis,
each foreman performs a job safety analysis (JSA) prior to performing any of their work for the day using an app on their mobile device, iAuditor. These JSAs offer each employee of the crew an opportunity to discuss the tasks and brainstorm the potential hazards they may encounter for the day. They then list the proper controls, hazard elimination, or precautionary measures to prevent incidents that could cause injuries. These daily tasks are submitted to the management team.
On a weekly basis, each crew performs a toolbox talk which covers training topics on a one page document. These are also performed on mobile devices with iAuditor and provide a great way to create engagement with the operators, laborers, and pipe layers. The hourly field employees are encouraged to read the toolbox talks to their peers. Once per month, employees are required to attend an all-hands safety meeting which allows for management to communicate key lessons learned from any near misses or incidents occurred and to provide relevant training.
