Project:  Riding Arena

I contracted Jesse Berry of Bear Excavating Ltd. in 2016 to build a 100 by 200 ft. outdoor sand riding arena at my farm south of Okotoks. Having had some experience as a developer, I was impressed by Jesse's knowledge of proper drainage and watershed. Whether it's a road or an arena, the base is everything. Jesse and his team were knowledgeable, respectful, and easy to work with. The company is able to work in a turnkey manner by having a variety of equipment including large dozers and hoes, small skid steers, and tandem gravel trucks and pups. This effectively minimized delays usually caused by waiting for availability of material haulers.

Jesse has built a number of riding arenas, from sand rings for show jumpers to rodeo grounds, and has acquired a good depth of knowledge of appropriate base material and sand. I am so pleased with my arena. The drainage is unbelievable - no puddling or pooling of water - and I have often ridden immediately following a rain storm. Jesse also improved the overall drainage around the farm yard and driveway with very simple and inexpensive fixes.

I highly recommend Bear Excavating Ltd.

Project:  Acreage Development

I have now hired Jesse Berry of Bear Excavating multiple times since my original contact with him about 4 years ago regarding our acreage development. Upon first meeting Jesse, I was so impressed with his willingness to listen to me in terms of my vision for our 3 acres. The strong impression only increased when he began to further expand and greatly improve my vision. Not only did Jesse have some amazing thoughts and ideas but the professionalism used to implement them was what was truly inspiring! Jesse and his team had a very well executed plan and delivered on all levels. Bear excavating surpassed all my expectations and came in right on budget. He truly is a man of his word, moving through his work with great integrity and a strong depth of knowledge. Jesse has not only earned my business in everything excavation related but I now count him as a great friend! Thank you Jesse and team for all you do!

Project:  Septic System

Jessie Barrie of Bear Excavating just completed the installation of a 200 foot long septic mound at our property in Millarville. Throughout the process we were impressed with Jessie both as a person of integrity and as a skilled tradesman. From the first visit to the property he seemed to have a vision of the best way to accomplish the job and during the install was able to think on his feet and add beneficial aspects to the acreage as a whole. He took ownership and great pride in his work. His employee, Will, was impressive as well, again both in his skills and in his desire to do the best possible job.
