Construction & Building Site Preparation Services

Brazeau is a recognized construction company offering site preparation services in the Ottawa area. When it’s time to start building, you need a professional and certified construction company on your side. The first step to any construction project is preparing the site for building.  We have been offering our professional site preparation and construction services since 1952. With the right combination of building materials, construction equipment, and skilled staff members, we can carry out a vast array of civil construction services on your land/property. Site preparation, road installation, property clearing and earth moving as well as management are services that we specialize in.

Our motto of building your projects from the ground up stands firm. You will undoubtedly experience a new level of customer service excellence when working with our team. The staff at Brazeau is highly experienced in transforming the raw land into completed and accurate subdivisions, condominiums or townhouses. When subdividing the property, it is important to understand that there are various aspects involved in the process. In some instances, the project will involve the professional installation of sewer systems, drains, hydro systems and cables. You will find the Brazeau team more than skilled and qualified to assist with these installations. We share your project vision: your desired outcome is our top priority and will be completed with building regulations and compliance in mind.

What is Site Preparation & What Does Our Service Include?

Site preparation is typically handled by an individual who ensures that the property is correctly prepared so that building can start. This person oversees the coordination and communication between all professionals involved including the architect, builder, professional project manager and/or homeowner. The first step is an assessment of the property using digital mapping techniques to ensure that the land can be viewed as a whole. The mapping of the property involves topographical profiles, aerial photos, soil assessment, timber assessment, access analysis, adjacent property lines and more. It provides a good starting point for each team or professional involved in the process. Once this is done, clearing of the property can take place and the actual preparation work can begin. Thereafter, the planning and zoning process is carried out to ensure that the property is developed within regulation. Thereafter a strategic building plan can be set in place covering everything from services delivered to the property to landscaping and finishing touches.
