Coast Valley Contracting is a full-service Civil Contractor with a wide range of expertise, equipment, and services. We are unique in the Sea to Sky Corridor in that we are the only civil contractor with our own source of gravel supply and spoil dump site, which transfers cost savings to our customers.
Site Preparation & Land Clearing
Site preparation and land clearing lay the groundwork for the construction process. With 45 years under our belt and a wide range of equipment, CVC has the experience and the tools to efficiently prepare land for future structures and land uses. Our past and current projects range in size from single residential lots to large scale commercial and industrial developments.
The initial development of a site can include:
- Site Surveying
- Removal and Disposal of Vegetation, Stumps, Rocks & Boulders, Gravel & Soil, and Invasive Plants.
- Accurate Site Grading
- Stormwater management
- Retaining wall construction
Our past and current projects range in size from single residential lots to large scale commercial and industrial developments.
Excavation, Trenching & Backfilling
CVC has a comprehensive fleet of equipment geared specifically toward Excavation & Backfilling. Our skilled personnel are masters in their craft, capable of delicately digging close to existing structures & obstacles, accessing hard-to-reach areas, and effectively removing material in compact and unprocessed ground.
CVC provides temporary protective structures when required for trenching, as the safety of our employees, clients and partners is a priority.
Excavation, Trenching & Backfilling serves a wide range of tasks, some examples include:
- Trenching for Stormwater Management
- Preparation for Utility Installation
- Foundation Preparation and Backfilling
- Adding or Removing Gravel to Achieve Elevations
These services often go hand in hand with site preparation, soil compaction and site grading.
Our gravel supply, offsite disposal site, and trucking fleet allow us to offer a cost-effective service, as there is no middleman in sourcing and moving gravel and disposing of excess soil.
CVC is proud to provide the most competitive service of supply, placement & removal of preload material for customers in the Sea to Sky region. Preloading is an effective and economical ground improvement method used to increase the amount of load that soil can bear and reduce settlement from occurring after construction.
CVC works with clients to minimize offsite disposal of the preload material and maximize on-site repurposing to create a strategic approach to best suit schedules and budgets.
