    Roads, Driveways, and Culverts

    The basic function of a road and/or driveway is to:

    • Provide reliable access to your property regardless of the weather.
    • To help manage drainage.
    • To reduce the amount of mud and other debris tracked out and left on the adjoining streets by vehicles.
    • Properly installed culverts are an integral part of all site plans.
    • A well – constructed road is a major investment. Built with suitable drainage, your investment will be protected.
    • Future expenses related to repairs will be kept to a minimum.
    • Reliable access is assured throughout the year.
    • Culverts can also help in the enhancement of water features such as ponds.

    Pond Construction

    Canyon Excavating has experience in constructing all types of ponds. Whether the pond is for aesthetics or serves a number of functional purposes, Canyon Excavating knows how to turn your vision into reality.
    Ponds often pay for themselves via increased property values and reduced site repairs.
    Ponds also provide additional wildlife habitat and contribute to a greener environment.

    Demolition and Waste Separation

    Canyon Excavating develops a comprehensive plan for demolition prior to actually beginning this phase of a project. One or more walk-through tours may be required to ensure every scenario has been addressed with a suitable solution. Soil samples and other related tests may need to be administered in order to identify potential trouble spots. This is also the time that we search for hidden treasures that we can unearth and incorporate into the project, saving both our resources and our customer’s money. These savings may include any recycling, redistribution and/or resale options related to the salvageable materials identified and separated from the debris. If there are materials that can’t be recycled, Canyon Excavating takes every precaution to ensure that this debris is removed and disposed of within the proper guidelines.


    Experience dictates that no two demolition projects are ever exactly the same. At first glance, it may look like just an average building or two that needs to be torn down. In actuality, the demolition work may only begin with the above-ground structure(s). There are frequently times when the largest part of a demolition project is located below grade. These hidden hazards can go unnoticed to an untrained eye and can wreak havoc to both the construction time line as well as the budget if not properly addressed. Toxic waste and asbestos are examples of environmental hazards that must be removed by a trained professional as required by various governmental agencies.

    Canyon Excavating emphasizes the importance of developing and maintaining a professional and positive alliance with any and all Federal, Provincial and municipal regulatory offices associated with a demolition project.

    The safety of our employees and our customers depends on our strict adherence to all relevant regulations. Our commitment and its success are validated year after year through our impeccable safety record.

  • Earthworks

    At a glance, clearing a designated landsite for either a commercial/industrial or residential project may seem similar in scope. However, commercial site work is not just a dozer pushing dirt around and clearing the property of trees and vegetative debris. An experienced contractor knows the requirements and regulations set by Federal, Provincial and local agencies which specifically define, differentiate and ultimately dictate how a project will be classified and the steps required to be in compliance for each phase of construction based on the classification. Canyon Excavating has built strong professional working relationships with inspectors, government/municipal employees and all other officials which govern any commercial project. They have to understand the inner workings and the behind the scene scenarios that are involved in construction planning before the first piece of equipment can show up at the jobsite. During construction, the contractor must have the expertise to tackle any issue(s) in a professional and expedient manner, or risk having the entire project shut down indefinitely.

    Commercial developers and project owners rely on Canyon Excavating to properly adhere to every regulated specification, build and maintain strong professional working relationships with all regulatory agencies while performing all aspects of land preparation and site development designated by the drawings and blueprints. Our resume includes everything from commercial buildings to lease roads, drilling sites, residential developments, industrial warehouse facilities and pipe yards.

    Since 2006, Canyon Excavating has been building the groundwork and reputation required to successfully navigate the challenges associated with any commercial and industrial construction project and produce a finished product that exceeds all expectations. Our possession of the skills, contacts, knowledge and equipment required to continuously complete projects under budget and ahead of schedule enables our customers to re-invest additional profits back into our community, benefiting us all. We take pride in our reputation for being the contractor our clients depend on for all their commercial and industrial site preparation.
