Foundations is the Next Construction Frontier

The demands of the construction industry are changing. Projects are beginning in isolated locations, along already crowded city streets, and on previously untouched, challenging ground conditions. With the increase in these builds comes the need for durable and adaptable foundation construction solutions.

There is 27.7 billion currently being spent on construction projects in Ontario alone. These projects are dominated by infrastructure revitalization and new builds.

  • Infrastructure improvements are an ongoing cycle, as projects come to a close, others begin. Over time old building materials start to break down and shifting soil and erosion speeds up this process. Therefore there is a growing need for custom foundations to be installed to keep these key infrastructure pieces operating safely.
  • The trend of new construction, both residential and commercial, continues to be tall, heavy buildings and the need for custom foundations work is also growing. Each project is unique and requires a different combination of shoring and pile works and drilling.

This money being allocated to ongoing construction projects means the demand for talented construction professionals is on the rise.
