Who We Are

Iron Woman embraces complexity. Our value comes from the complex problem-solving power of combining each of our divisions and services to provide whole solutions. From our trucking roots, we’ve diversified into constructors with a focus on water infrastructure, environmental, mining, and logistics. Our sustainable infrastructure solutions solve increasingly complex problems.

Iron Woman builds relationships. We are client centric. We select business partners who match our ethical profile. We build meaningful long-term relationships when engaging clients, subcontractors, and fellow employees. The relationship is more important than the next deal.

Our Story

Iron Woman Construction and Environmental Services was founded as a trucking company in 1999 and has since expanded to become a multidisciplinary general contractor. We provide sustainable infrastructure solutions that have helped generate record growth across the Rocky Mountain region. The name “Iron Woman” is a homage to founder Shaun Egan’s great-great-great-grandmother, a full-blood Blackfeet Indian.
