Construction Support

Kilgour & Associates can assist in the construction of infrastructure such as:

• Bridges and culverts;
• Stormwater management ponds (temporary and permanent);
• other earthworks.

In support of construction activities, we can provide a full range of services that include:
• Ecological constraint analysis
• Aquatic and terrestrial surveys for fish, birds, plants, turtles, trees;
• Environmental impact statements and other approvals documents for municipal, provincial and federal authorities;
• Fish removal plans and programs;
• Species at risk investigation and development / negotiation of permits with government agencies;
• Erosion and sediment control plans, monitoring and reporting;
• Onsite monitoring and reporting to regulators throughout your project and at the completion;
• Environmental policy and program development to address environmental compliance and liability.

Our expertise in construction monitoring and support is demonstrated in our development of best management plans and operational statements for Fisheries and Oceans Canada. We developed the following documents and procedures:

• We developed monitoring protocols to be applied by DFO staff to determine how well DFO’s (Ontario) 23 Operational Statements have worked to protect fish habitat;
• We developed the Shoreline Stabilization Operational Statement;
• We developed Best Management Practices for the following activities;
· Culvert Construction
· Bridge Construction
· Worksite Isolation
· Excavation
· In Water Work
· Dredging
· Moorings
· Coffer Dam
· Hydro Generating Station and Control Structure Repairs

Our support of construction activities is not limited to the ice-free period. We have been actively supporting various heavy-equipment operators in the installation of culverts on watercourses even through the winter months. The work is a little more complicated, but we have been able to assist a variety of winter jobs meet tight schedules.
