Ever travel down a lonely back route after a heavy rainstorm only to find the road washed out? That's what happens when a municipality neglects their culvert engineering! In Strathroy and all over Ontario, the engineers at G. Douglas Vallee are doing their part to make sure you don't end up down the river when you're out for a drive.
Culverts are one of those urban engineering feats that are easy to take for granted. Most of us hardly ever think about the vital role they play in making our roads safe and keeping our properties dry, but we all notice their absence when they're missing! Properly planed and implemented, culverts are invisible but effective. They successfully divert water and drainage away from roads, buildings, and pooling areas and divert it to where it will do the least harm (or even the most good). Without them, it only takes one good rainfall or melt to make roads impassible or flood a basement.
At G. Douglas Vallee, we appreciate the little details. From major municipal projects such as bridge construction and road design, to simple improvements like the humble culvert, we always bring our A-game. Our experienced team are experts when it comes to the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code, the Navigable Waters Protection Act, and the Fisheries Act and know exactly how to scope, plan, and actualize a culvert project that is in compliance with all regulation and effectively performs its function.
Sometimes, it's good to sweat the small stuff! If you're in need of culvert engineering in Strathroy, call on the team you can rely on to do the job right. Call G. Douglas Vallee Limited.
