We Always Consider the Environment

Bedrock Construction is committed to the environment and to making sure that during demolition everything is taken care of.

  • Reduce
    • We are committed to making sure that we are as efficient as possible, and that we maintain the least amount of environmental disturbance as possible.  We are always trying to minimize our impact.
  • Reuse
    • Before the actual demolition starts we take stock of all the items that are on site.  We try to maximize the reuse potential of everything that is in the old building.  It is amazing what you can do with a little planning and organizing.
  • Recycle
    • Commercial projects typically have a wider array of materials, chemicals and debris.  We make sure that all of the materials go to the right recycling spots.  We are committed to green.
  • Asbestos
    • Part of the demolition process is to submit the right applications.  There is a specific asbestos form with the City of Calgary.  Before the demolition can commence the building has to be inspected and certified.  It is either certified that there is no asbestos in it, or a professional company comes in and removes the asbestos and then it is certfied clean.

      Visit the government of Alberta’s website for information about Occupational Health and Safety.​

  • Trees
    • You must submit a public tree notification with your demolition application.  It doesn’t matter how close the trees are, a plan must be in place.  Tree protection is very important and there are specific rules thatr must be followed to protect them.
    • If the tree is within 6 meters a tree protection plan must be submitted.  If the tree is further away than that the application must still be submitted but you can mark that on the application.
