We Are a BGRS Authorized Supplier

We have proudly served our relocating Canadian Forces members for decades. As an authorized BGRS supplier, we take care of the billing for you by invoicing BGRS directly for our services. We take great pride in helping those who serve our country, therefore we donate a portion of the proceeds of every BGRS inspection to a local armed forces charitable foundation.

Locally Educated, Locally Knowledgeable

We are proudly local. Our knowledge of the region’s geotechnical characteristics provides us with the expertise to diagnose unique structural issues related to our region. From the locations of Radon “red zones”, to deposits of leda clay (“Champlain Sea Clay”), we can advise you on particular deficiencies that may arise due to local soil conditions.
