Project Additional Body Rendered

Setting new standards in earthworks and excavation services

At the height of the excavation phase, Bluebird’s heavy equipment operators expertly navigated seven excavators in tandem within a half-block lot (3,700 square-metres) to maintain the tight project schedule.

The team was able to efficiently remove material at the deepest level of excavation using Bluebird’s custom-designed, triple-stick excavator, a distance that standard excavators can’t reach. In total, over 85,000 cubic metres of material was removed to complete the five-level parkade.
