Click on a type of work for a more detailed overview of our sweeper services:
Large and small construction companies make up a fairly large portion of our customers. These range from very large site preparation companies working on industrial and residential projects to medium and small size developers and builders of new residential subdivisions.
We are the power sweeping service provider of choice for most of the large firms with multiple projects in the Lower Mainland. Our ability to deploy our machines 24/7, work unsupervised, understand the scope of work and clean up job sites to exceed the requirements of the local municipal regulations and bylaws ensures our customers are compliant and stay operational. The cost of a site shut down for a dirty road far, far exceeds a simple call to our dispatch and our fee for power sweeping services.
We perform a variety of tasks for this segment of the industry including regular clean ups, dispatched one-time cleaning services, scheduled sweep days for ongoing maintenance and ministry/municipality compliance. In many cases we stay on site daily to ensure the needs of the job and area are addressed “live”.
Construction clean ups are not just a task that any street sweeper company can excel at. We have recognized the unique aspects of these jobs and have taken steps to educate our entire team on the logistics involved as well as maintaining our sweeper trucks daily for these specialized conditions. Small adjustments to the sweeper mechanisms by our knowledgeable technicians can optimize performance and deliver a heightened level of service that is noticeable to all.
Municipal work is definitely a valued part of our business model through contracts for weekly year round maintenance or annual “spring clean ups” and “Leaf Programs”. We are proud to be one of the service providers of choice for the City of Vancouver’s annual Leaf Program with now over 20 years of service to the city and its residents. We continue to seek out municipal opportunities when we see reasonable profitability for our company while not compromising the level of service we deliver. Unfortunately, many municipalities go with the “lowest bidder” often resulting in us not getting the contract.
Our commitment to reliable, high-quality service has made us the sweeper service provider for maintaining the Lower Mainland's highways and bridges on an ongoing and scheduled basis. We also maintain the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) on a weekly basis, keeping all of the terminals, bridges and roads in and out of the area in pristine condition. We value our relationships in this contract, knowing it is a privilege to have this responsibility to everyone in the Greater Vancouver area that enjoys the safety and cleanliness of the road systems we maintain.
Working with a grinding machine takes not only specialized machines at times but a working knowledge of the process and flow of the job. We have two High Dump sweepers that are designed to dump the hopper load into a dump truck or other container up to 12’ high. This saves a grinding crew valuable time and eliminates the need to dump off site and/or “touch” the material multiple times. Our Mechanical Sweeper, which is set up specifically for sweeping up grindings, along with our highly experienced “grinding job” operators ensure that the paving prep can come in right behind the grinding task with minimal delay.
Prep for laying the pavement requires a specific setup of the sweeper to optimize performance (get the job done quickly), but just as important is the operator’s knowledge of the flow of a paving project. An experienced sweeper operator can anticipate the needs of the job while staying out of the way of the paving crew. These jobs are frequently done on roads and high volume intersections that must remain open to traffic. Our operators work with the traffic control personnel to ensure the job gets done, while keeping safety as their paramount concern. We have been the sweeper service provider for many of the large paving projects in the GVRD, including the 2010 Olympics Sea to Sky Highway upgrade, the entire South Fraser Perimeter Road project, Pitt River Bridge and the Port Mann Highway 1 project, to name a few.
Vancouver International Airport or “YVR” continues to upgrade not only their terminals and runways but much of the infrastructure as they become one of the finest airports in the world. Airside sweeping requires security clearance and a working knowledge of the standards and protocols of sweeping in an active airfield environment. Our operators have extensive experience in working with the YVR Security systems and the contractors doing the airside construction.
One of the specialties of our power sweeping units is cleaning up concrete that has accidentally spilled from a concrete truck enroute to its customer. Call-ins of concrete spills are dealt with in a very timely manner to ensure that the concrete does not set up on the road and the public safety of travel is maintained.
Cement, gravel, sand and dust accumulate in and around concrete plants easily and daily as a part of their operations. We provide weekly or monthly yard maintenance for many of the concrete plants in the Lower Mainland ensuring they stay compliant with local regulations and maintain a safe environment for their workers.
Using a combination of high powered backpack blowers to move dirt and debris out from corners, curbs and other problem areas, along with our vacuum power sweeper trucks that have the power to “Suck it up!”, we leave your parking lot clean and appealing to provide an enhanced customer experience. We service lots of any size, from a small retail plaza to a full sized mall, or event and recreation center. A clean (or dirty!) parking lot is the first and last impression a customer has of your business; why not make it a great impression.
Sawmills and manufacturing plants, multi-use units, stratas and transport yards are just a few examples of industrial facilities that employ our power sweeping services to maintain and enhance their sites. Whether you prefer weekly, monthly or call-in scheduling, depending on the level of need we will tailor a program to suit your particular property.
The magic of movies often involves blowing things up and creating a disastrous mess. When the director says “CUT!” we will come in and put the city back together, sweeping and flushing all evidence away. Having an event that will conclude with a large clean-up effort? Why not have us come in and handle it for you? There is no substitute for the look of a newly swept area by one of our vacuum trucks.
