Over the years, we have completed many projects with the highest regard for the environment. This consideration and care shows through not only in our work, but also in the recognition we receive. Our environmental awards were won because of our dedication to conservation and keeping spaces safe for wildlife, vegetation and those living in the surrounding communities.

Project: Whitemud Creek/30 Avenue, Erosion Controls
Abalone Construction Services, Inc. was hired by the City of Edmonton to start work on the 2006 Erosion Controls project. The purpose of this project was to restore the area by repairing the immense devastation caused by the 2004 floods. The water eroded the banks of the Whitemud Creek and compromised the integrity of a nearby footbridge.
The more pressing concern, however, was the imminent danger the scattered debris posed on the previous natural safe passage for the inhabiting fish. After studying a detailed ECO plan and examining DFO and Navigable Water permitting requirements, the fish salvage operation began. Abalone Construction fabricated special fish traps that ensured the confinement of the fish detained on site, while still ensuring their safety. The fish were then transported downstream to an area that was not in a state of jeopardy.
