Deep Foundations Mission Statement

  • To help our customers manage, build and succeed by providing them with superior safety performance, quality workmanship, and efficient execution.

  • To provide our employee-owners and employees with a rewarding career in a well managed and growing company.

Deep Foundations started with a single drill rig in 1971, and has grown into the second biggest fleet of premium-line drill rigs in North America. 

Our talented and motivated management team is highly innovative, having reinvented existing foundation practices and developing numerous inventions. Some of our advancements include:

  • Deep Foundations was the first in Canada to install secant piles as a water cutoff wall.
  • We were the first to bring hydraulic drill rigs to Canada, which are now an industry standard.
  • Unique to Deep Foundations is a pile driving spotter with an on board computer.  This invention prevents torsional loading of a lattice boom, and has earned us the rights to an International patent.
