We’ve worked closely with the City of Ottawa on a number of recent projects, such as the West End pumping stations, Alta Vista culvert replacement, and the John Asselford Weir removal.
Foundation excavation is a critical step in the construction process. The foundation is the keystone of any building, and it must be built to the proper specifications to ensure that the structure can last for years.
Foundation excavation should take place before any other construction work begins, and it should involve a professional engineer or architect to ensure that everything is done correctly.
This step should also involve testing the soil to ensure that it is suitable for construction and that there are no unexpected obstacles that could damage the structure later on.
Once the foundation has been properly excavated, the next step is to install support beams and foundations, as well as any other structural components such as walls, floors, and ceilings.
Ideally, this step should be completed before any other construction work starts, but if this is not possible, it should be done as soon as possible.
