With the recent announcement of the Canadian Federal Government’s program launch for the clean-up of orphaned and inactive oil and gas wells throughout Western Canada, IWC Excavation is equipped to provide a wide range of environmental earth-moving and construction services, including soil remediation and reclamation.
Having already completed a wide range of large-scale, complex, and challenging earth-moving projects in some of the most remote areas of Western Canada, the IWC Excavation team brings experience and leadership to ensure all environmental projects are delivered safely, on schedule, and to a high standard of quality:
Safety and Environmentally Certified
When operating heavy machinery in remote locations with challenging terrain, safety and environmental practices cannot be compromised. As a COR Certified Contractor, IWC Excavation is able to assess and manage complex job sites for potential risks, and self-audit to continuously improve safety performance. This includes adhering to enhanced guidelines for health, sanitation, and distancing on a job site amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are also SAFE Certified through the BC Forest Safety Council, which allows our team to work in forested terrain in a safe, organized, and environmentally compliant manner. This ensures IWC Excavation crews have the training, resources, and confidence to complete complicated jobs in remote areas, to the highest standards in the industry.
With a fleet of over 50 pieces of heavy machinery, all serviced and maintained in-house by certified technicians, IWC Excavation is able to accurately schedule an appropriate mix of equipment for any remote project site. This ensures every machine arrives on time, in peak operating condition.
And with a team of over 100 skilled employees, we’re able to mobilize multiple crews of trusted and dependable professionals to any job site. Having already worked on a wide range of industrial earth-moving projects in remote locations, the IWC Excavation team has experience working in all climatic conditions, following safe and productive processes.
Experienced Leadership Team
IWC Excavation’s technical, environmental, and field crews are all supported by an experienced and dedicated leadership team. From detailed project planning to environmental assessments, our leadership team accurately estimates productive work hours, schedules equipment arrivals, and coordinates all permits, documentation, and reporting requirements.
Our leadership team is also responsible for our commitment to our culture of safety, following all regulations mandated by industry governing authorities. Combined with IWC Excavation’s challenger mentality and emphasis on continual improvement, our leadership style empowers our workers to efficiently plan and execute all remote projects safely, productively, and according to schedule.
Relevant Project Experience
Prior experience working on complex projects in remote, environmentally sensitive areas is critical to understanding the full scope of work involved in any earth-moving or soil remediation and reclamation activity.
IWC Excavation has already completed archaeological testing, exploratory trench excavation, and contaminated soil disposal and impoundment services, which are common with oil and gas well remediation and reclamation projects.
Combined with extensive project experience building access roads, bridges, and other critical infrastructures in remote locations – near watersheds and other environmentally protected areas – the IWC Excavation team is equipped to fully support Western Canada’s energy sector with a full range of earth-moving services.
Examples of some of the complex, remote, and environmentally sensitive earth-moving projects we’ve completed include:
- Myra Falls Mine Operations
