Top Excavation Services in Vancouver and Throughout British Columbia

When it comes to civil construction, excavation, and construction management, the team at North Construction in North Vancouver has done it all. Our company is known for tackling challenging terrain and sensitive construction projects the other guys won’t touch.

Any type of construction has its challenges. But those challenges are tenfold when you factor in excavation. When dealing with trench walls, tunnelling, underground utilities, and excavated soil debris, you need a company ready to deal with those less-than-ideal working conditions.

Any time you dig a hole or move organic material and rocks, you disrupt the surrounding environment. You better have a well-thought-out plan and the right excavating machinery on-site to meet the project’s requirements.

Whether we’re in the trench or hauling away excess soil, North Construction takes its protective systems and quality of service very seriously.

Companies seeking sound excavation services in Vancouver (and across B.C.) have been turning to North Construction for almost three decades!

Top 5 Reasons Why Clients Trust North Construction for Excavation Work

1. We Work Safely

What happens when the digging depth exceeds what was called for? What is the emergency plan if things go wrong? It’s in everyone’s best interests if the company you hire knows the answers to these questions.

Most excavating companies have basic methods to promote occupational health and safety. At North Construction, when it comes to following protocols, our goal is to exceed the usual expectations.

Digging up earth and clearing the way for new roads and underground utilities is a big part of civic construction. It is a specialized line of work that requires heavy equipment and an intelligent plan. When removing material from the ground, there is always an element of danger involved.

Cave-ins, falling loads, natural gas line ruptures, flooding, electrical mishaps, overhead power lines, and unstable structures are potential hazards facing workers.

Even the most competent person can make mistakes, so having the appropriate personal protective equipment (including trench boxes) is critical.

Certain soil types aren’t safe for benching (creating horizontal steps near the dig). Likewise, nearby vehicles can also contribute to a cave-in while digging.

Being a COR certified company, protecting workers within the excavation walls and workplace health is North Construction’s top priority.

Understanding the parameters of the job and the demands of the location are critical to the success of any project. North Construction is called upon for our robust and decisive leadership during complex assignments.

2. We Take on the Most Challenging Projects

We possess an “Anything is possible” attitude. Many construction companies will make the same claim to win a contract. However, it usually turns out to be a lot of wishful boasting. When it comes to excavation, choosing the wrong company can be costly for clients.

How do we know? Because we’ve been called in to rescue various projects over the years.

If you’ve got an excavation/construction job that needs to get back on track quickly, North Construction will come to the rescue! Our solutions streamline job-site activity for excavation projects of all sizes.

We’ve completed projects around the province in the toughest conditions. Extreme slopes and remote locations accessible only by helicopter may deter some companies, but not North Construction.

What may seem like an impossible situation for most crews is all part of a day’s work at North Construction!

3. We Communicate Well with Clients Using the Latest Tech

One thing technology affords our company is the ability to stay connected with our teams and our customers.

As a stakeholder, you deserve to know what’s happening on the job site. From the moment North Construction’s equipment hits the ground, our process ensures that clients are kept up-to-date with our latest progress.

How do we accomplish this? We employ drone technology for surveying the site, construction planning, and progress monitoring. Having an aerial point of view is the easiest and safest way to get a complete overview of the excavation/construction work.

Using the latest telematics and 3D GPS technologies helps us determine the safest, more efficient course of action for any job. Online 3D models can be manipulated at any point for added control over your project. North Construction nurtures collaborative partnerships.

Excavation site work is all about building confidence in the trenches. In addition to our well-maintained fleet of excavators, bulldozers, graders, wheel trenchers, loaders, compactors, and dump trucks, we rely on the latest advancements in the industry to stay ahead of the competition.

4. We Adopt the Latest Technologies to Improve Efficiency

North Construction utilizes telematics and black box technologies to monitor its equipment fleet.

The ability to keep tabs on our equipment and its performance allow us to generate activity reports that improve how we handle our excavation work. Performance index tools are crucial to our ongoing success.

As mentioned, drones are ideal for excavations as they permit a bird’s eye view of hazardous, difficult-to-access locations. All that’s required to view is a computer and an internet connection.

We have an established work process and safety system that has served us well for many years, but we’re always looking for new resources to improve our efficiency.

Contact North Construction today for excavation services that go above and beyond the usual standard.
