About the Edgett Excavating Team  

We’re a hardcore group of construction industry professionals determined to find better ways to do every job. We have the grit and work ethic to get the job done. The weirder and more complex the request the more we dig in to meet the challenge.

We pride ourselves on being among the best in the industry regardless if we’re working for large clients like the federal, provincial or civic governments, Fortune 500 companies like Walmart or Home Depot, or the family doing a backyard project.

With a keen eye for innovative solutions, professional planning and execution, and value budgeting we get the job done right the first time. When you work with the Edgett Excavating team, you know you’re working with the best in the business.

Focusing on Safety, Environment and Community

While we’re driven to be excellent excavating contractors, we’re also motivated by other important values. Safety is the foundation of everything we do in the field, at the office and in our community.

We strive to implement and continuously improve our COR safety protocols to ensure everyone arrives home to their families and the communities and sites on which we work become safer. Hand-in-hand with safety is our corporate focus to work sustainably.

Through detailed job planning, resource allocation and use of environmentally responsible field practices, we are working to minimize our environmental footprint in every aspect of operations.

Environmental initiatives like the Tsolum River enhancement project are high priorities. The creation of affordable housing is a home contractor program we’re deeply committed to through Habitat for Humanity. Each year, we contribute and donate our time to numerous local charities and associations.

Finally, Edgett Excavating and its people are active in the community supporting children’s groups through the general construction of parks and recreation areas, sponsoring local teams and youth activities.
