Safety Practices

Villeneuve Construction is committed to conducting its business operations in a manner that safeguards and sustains the environment while protecting human health. We strive to develop an attitude of good stewardship with respect to the environmental impact of our operations and services. We recognize that responsible environmental stewardship will ensure our continued success and growth as a company and as a leader in the construction industry.

Our ethic towards the environment has certified us by the Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment in a number of environmental practices, such as wood waste disposal services, contaminated soil collection, handling and transportation, including certification for the production of our asphalt and concrete plants.

By keeping the environment healthy, we keep our communities healthy and ensure the growth of our industry.

Over the years, we have also provided numerous services for land rehabilitation projects and have made the commitment to practice the same level of excellence in rehabilitation as we do in construction.
