Prattco has been digging basements and providing complete excavation services from start to finish all over Calgary and the surrounding areas. We’re committed to the highest level of quality and service. By uniting well trained employees and supervisors with the latest excavation technology, we get excavation projects done on time and on budget.
We’ve collaborated with some of Calgary’s foremost builders, developers and contractors to dig residential basements, commercial developments and provide a wide array of earthwork services. We’re committed to safety and hold several certificates honouring our diligence. We strive to improve the Calgary community for the better by donating time, money and resources to many worthy causes. At Prattco, we dig it!
At Prattco, our aim is to maintain a safe and healthy workplace. All of our excavation sites have a zero incident goal. No job is so important that it can’t be completed safely.
No one individual is delegated to maintain safe operations. Safety is the responsibility of all involved parties, including contractors, subcontractors, tradespeople and operators of all experience levels. Everyone will observe and assist in all aspects of their wellbeing and the wellbeing of their teammates. Through training and safe work practices, we can maintain a healthy work environment.
We hold a Workplace Safety Certificate of Recognition (COR) from the Alberta Construction Safety Association. This certificate recognizes that the employer’s health and safety management system has been evaluated by a certified, independent auditor and found to meet the Alberta Construction Safety Association’s exacting standards. Our health and safety management systems can reduce injuries and eliminate the social, physical and financial effects of workplace incidents. Many corporations will only work with excavators who hold a COR and Prattco is proud to be one of the COR-holding excavators in Calgary.
Prattco takes pride in offering a fun, safe and rewarding work environment. We have year round work available and we are closed on all statutory holidays and long weekends. We understand you have a life outside of work.
