Iqaluit builder Jens Steenberg remembered for his construction skills

Here is one of the numerous houses that Jens Edvard Brandt Steenberg built in Iqaluit in the 1990s, which are still sought after more than 20 years after he built them. Many in the city remember Steenberg, who died May 19 in Pincher Creek, Alta., at the age of 77. “Steenberg built” is still mentioned on realtors’ advertisements as a selling point. Kalman Strauss wrote on the funeral home memory wall that “Jens was not only a really nice person he was also the best homebuilder that Iqaluit ever had! His homes are still the nicest ones in town 20 years later.” You can find an online memory wall for Steenberg here. (Submitted photo)
