Concept North, Inc.

We are a northern-owned and -operated business, headquartered in Hay River, NT. We provide accommodation, equipment, and service solutions to industry in the Northwest Territories, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. We pride ourselves on providing prompt, responsive, quality services and products. If something needs to be done, we do it and we do it right. It is a simple philosophy, but it serves us, and our clients, well.

In 2003, our President and CEO, Pierre (Rocky) Simpson began renting portable workforce accommodations to the oil and gas industry in the NWT and northern Alberta. The original fleet consisted of two used trailers.

Since then we have built over 100 portable accommodation units of virtually every type – kitchens, washcars, sleepers, gas units, electric units, steel container conversions, and more. We fabricate everything in house, from the steel skid up. We have also renovated and retrofitted numerous trailers and multiple camps, both on site and at our facility.

With hard work, and dedication to providing the highest level of service, Concept’s rental inventory now includes full camps, camp and wellsite trailers, light and heavy duty equipment, and more. We also offer a full array of camp services.

In 2009, we expanded into modular building construction. Our first project was as a major partner in the École Boréale high school expansion in Hay River, NT. That was soon followed by the construction of two airport terminals, which we built at our Hay River facility and installed in two high arctic communities. Most recently, we have expanded into residential construction.


In 2014, Concept acquired Arctic Front Windows. This window manufacturing and distribution company has been operating in Hay River, NT since 1991 and has supplied countless windows to homes all across the Northwest Territories.

We pride ourselves on being resourceful and responsive. These attributes, along with our experience and dedication to service, have helped us grow in both size and reputation. Despite this growth our main focus has always been, and continues to be, the needs of each individual client.
