If you are looking at starting a new construction project on your property, a looming reality for many landowners in Nova Scotia is dealing with the removal and break up of rocks before any site development can take place. If you want to hire a company with expertise in providing rock breaking services to the communities of Dartmouth, Bedford and Halifax (and Halifax area), and you want to make sure that you are hiring a company with the staff and the equipment needed, G&R Kelly has been providing safe, reliable rock breaking services to customers in the private and public sector for 50 years.
How do I break underground rocks?
Dealing with rock is often a reality for anyone undergoing construction or development in Nova Scotia. Whether it’s needed for excavation, levelling, site development or road construction, G&R Kelly can provide rock breaking services that can help remove rocks on land in Dartmouth, Bedford and Halifax so you can continue with your project.
Many areas in Nova Scotia have to deal with rock removal both above ground and underground before beginning any new construction or road project. If you are faced with the challenge of breaking rocks for road construction, you know that this is not a job for an inexperienced construction company. With G&R Kelly, we have the latest equipment and technology to search out and locate any underground rocks in your construction project, and to determine the best way to remove them — potentially by using equipment such as a rock breaker for an excavator, or a hydraulic hammer for rock hammering. Once the rock has been broken down, then we can use the excavator to conduct rock trenching to remove the smaller pieces which can either be crushed further and used on your property or be completely removed.
If your project involves the preparation of a site to dig trenches for services such as sewer pipes, drainage systems or electrical work — such as an electrical duct bank — then you may need a general contracting company that has experience with digging a trench through solid rock. For projects like this, we use a rock breaker for an excavator or a hammerhead, as one of the best methods for removing underground rocks is to dig trenches is by hammering rocks with an excavator.
If your property has an existing concrete pad that needs to be demolished and removed, G&R Kelly also has experience in that type of work, as one of the Halifax area’s longest-running civil construction companies providing rock breaking contractor services in Halifax (and Halifax area). We can be engaged as a concrete breaker for your site, as a company that provides rock breaking services to all types of organizations in Bedford, Halifax (and Halifax area) and Dartmouth. We also have excavation equipment for rent, if that is of interest, and we can also rent excavation equipment to you with an operator.
So if you need the services of a professional rock breaking contractor for your site work in the Nova Scotia communities of Bedford, Dartmouth and Halifax (and the Halifax area), our teams and equipment can be easily dispatched to your site, and you can be assured the work will be completed safely, on time, and within your project budget.
