Gavin has lived all of his life in Rangiora and still has his boyhood passion for diggers. He started his own one truck and digger business in 2000 and it is testimony to the standard of Gavin’s work that many of the people he first worked for remain valued clients today.
GRS Excavations Ltd retains its small business focus on providing a personal service to ensure clients get the job done to their particular requirements. The business now employs five full time staff and tackles a very wide range of earthworks through rural and urban Canterbury and also undertakes residential and smaller commercial demolition and is CERA accredited.
The business is also fully conversant with the new requirements for compacted hard fill and rib raft foundations and has completed many of these for individual builders and housing companies within the last year.
All GRS operators are all highly skilled at their work and Site Safe trained and the business has considerable experience of complex hill excavations. Gavin believes this is why they can provide a very efficient service and is a key factor why clients come back to GRS Excavation for future work.
Clients range from individuals looking for a quick but considerate service for horse burials through to large projects for housing groups such as Artisan Homes and Golden Homes and construction project management companies including Calder Stewart, Arrow International and Naylor Love. “If we don’t have the gear ourselves to do a job we will get it and we look at all jobs as an opportunity to help.” Gavin says.
Living rurally also means that Gavin has a lot of interaction with the farming community with whom he is often discussing new approaches to solving a problem. Currently the business is working with neighboring farmers on an alternative and more cost effective effluent handling system.
