One of the more challenging aspects of construction, be it excavation, site preparation, road building and other earth moving jobs is the consideration of the environment. Kerry takes this side of his construction projects very seriously! As a qualified technician in water related disciplines he understands the risks that excavation projects might incur. The pictures below are illustrations of just a few examples of this delicate work!
Caring for the Environment
Working along a Creek Bed
In the Nanoose area there are many small streams that support fish and related wildlife
Maintaining the integrity of the stream
Careful use of heavy machinery is so important where the environment is concerned, as in this image.
A System of Filter nets installed
The temporary use of filter netting provides that contaminating silt residues are controlled during road building
Strategic Placement of Large Boulders
For a waterway to be productive natural barriers are important and where they don't exist they can be safely placed using large boulders.
Preventing Undesirable Erosion
Running water is very powerful and can create damaging erosion. Strategic rock placement can ameliorate most of this action.
Containing Silty Water
Berms and filter netting protect the integrity of this crystal clear stream as the erosion defenses are placed.
Healthy Fish are a Priority
An inquisitive healthy trout is the direct beneficiary of careful construction around ths fish bearing stream.
