LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

The S2-3 Kaiser 4x4 Walking Excavator offers ultra low impact and can walk on 100% slopes without winching or assistance. Learn More 


Projects

This is a limited example of work we have done between 1996 and 2015. We have completed too many to include all of them and have tried to show a diverse cross section of the work done over the years. (Click on a bar to learn more)

We have worked on hundreds of Rivers/Creeks throughout Western Canada. We have worked with some of the top in-stream biologists throughout North America from 1996 to present. The following are examples but not a complete list.

Our newest machine the S2-3 4x4 Spyder spent the better part of 2 weeks in the Salmo River placing large woody debris and rock clusters.

After a major oil spill in the Cheakamus River in Squamish, BC, we were tasked to create more habitat structures to help bring back the fish population. This project is still ongoing.

 


 

1997-2004 Mahatta River Project
View PhotosThis was a multi-year project with Western Forest Products near Port Alice, BC, Canada. Past logging practices increased the steepness of the Mahatta River to a point where the fish could not gain access to the main river stem and had lowered the entire creek bed so the side channel access was lost. We re-established access by creating 5 New Berry rifles to the main stem. We then rebuilt new side channels so the fish had rearing habitat.

We created over 1000 different habitat structures, as this was an instructional stream.

High profile, fish bearing stream on White Mud Creek directly below the Edmonton ski hill.  The objective was to repair  the bank erosion while still maintaining a green belt in this park. The before and after pictures show a successful outcome!

We were able to gain access in an environmentally friendly manner by narrowing the machine down to 7 feet wide and walking over the bank. We installed riprap and cuttings. Due to the low impact of this machine, existing vegetation was not disturbed.

The objective here was to create an access area using minimal damage, while placing vegetated rip rap.

The objective was to protect the infrastructure of Outfall 13 by stabilizing the banks of Wolf Willow Creek Ravine using a riprap application.

Trail, BC. This was a multi year project starting in spring 2006. Nu Creek was to place willow cuttings, 1 metre deep in an extremely steep, unstable slope with a base of sand, brick and various material. The slopes here ranged from 70% to 100% in steepness and have been our most challenging project to date due to steepness and close working proximity of the ground crew and bank materials.

We were instructed to re-establish proper drainage, as well as cover and repair exposed pipe.

View PhotosWith imminent wildfire risks, we have been working in Jasper National Park & Banff National Park doing fuel reduction since 2003. This consisted of removing dead/dying trees and thinning the forest area within close proximity of the town sites to a point where wildfires are controllable around the town site.  The Parks are high profile tourist areas that try to maintain a balance and cohesiveness with wildlife and humans. The main objective was minimal damage to visible areas from the town site, walking trails and recreational resort areas.

View Photos1997 – 2003 We completed several projects over this 6 year period with Western Forest Products, Weyerhaeuser & Canadian Forest Products at the north end of Vancouver Island. Past pullback projects with regular excavators were unable to recover all the materials which could cause future failures due to added weight. We were assigned steep, high risk areas with an objective to recover and pullback all materials from the slope, as a preventative measure, returning it to its original contour.

View Photos1998 Nu Creek's expertise was required in Zeballas, BC on a bridge, due to the steepness of the access area and the depth of the water. The foundations under the bridge were washing out. After hoe-chucking rip rap down the bank, we climbed down the rock and positioned ourselves under the bridge and placed rip rap.

 

1998 – Little Qualicum River Bridge, Vancouver Island. The objective here was the same as all bridge jobs, to secure the foundation. In this instance, the clearance under the bridge required a machine strong enough to lift rip rap the size of 1 metre and still have the capability to lower itself to a comfortable working height, placing the rip rap, without damaging the 12 foot high bridge.

We have worked with various forest companies mounding and removing debris to prepare for planting. We have added a 360 degree ROTATION RAKE to our implements enabling us to increase our production rate, while improving the final product.

new chair lift.

2010 – Mulching and mowing trails at Fernie Ski Hill to extend ski season.

2014 to present we have worked with Fortis doing inspection, maintenance and repair of gas pipe lines.

...I have had the pleasure of working with Len on several different projects ranging from instream habitat creation and high risk road deactivation... Len has continually demonstrated a strong commitment to quality work yet always being aware of budgetary constraints...
