We have built our reputation on uncompromising standards. For over 22 years and a goal of zero revisits, we have completed more than 1000 successful reclamation projects that have received AER certificates.
Hodgson Contracting provides full service RECLAMATION, REMEDIATION, and SPILL RESPONSE services in the following areas of Alberta including, but not limited to; Drayton Valley, Edson, Hinton, Whitecourt, Rocky Mountain House, Red Deer, Devon, Spruce Grove, Edmonton.
HCL has four tree-planting / site preparing attachments that fit onto the rippers of the dozers. Two attachments can be pulled by one dozer and it will decompact the soil like a para-till. This leaves a furrow for moisture retention and a dirt windrow for tree planting. This method patterns the surface contours for the control of water runoff to enhance sustainable tree growth.
HCL is equipped to complete the Remedial Work Plans that result from Phase II Environmental Site Assessments. These Remedial Work Plans may also be a part of a Phase III ESA. Our remediation services include the removal and transportation of impacted soils, the provision of clean clay fill from our available sources and the supply of specialty equipment for soil treatment options to meet specific project requirements. HCL works closely with our customers and the site representatives to implement any other mitigation measures that are needed to achieve the desired result.
HCL has purchased a new AXE BLADE Allu Bucket that has an adjustable screen opening of 25 or 50 mm. This new design handles wet clay and tree debris very efficiently and aerates material quickly. This Allu Bucket reduces the cost of remediating soils for our customers.
To mobilize our equipment; HCL owns a fleet of truck and trailer combinations that include tandem and tridem tractor-trucks, tridem axle low beds, scissor necks and jeep combinations. For smaller equipment; HCL has dual rear wheel 2 ton picker and dump style trucks, tandem/tridem axle tilt decks and dump trailers for mobilizing equipment and/or materials to location. We have custom engineered our tandem/tridem axle truck box and trailer configurations (both pony pup/end dump) utilizing tub style and polyurethane lined boxes, sealed end gates and electric tarps.
The features we have incorporated into our units to optimize the performance of the fleet in dirt/clay hauling have reduced the amount of times that the drivers have to enter the box. This has increased the productivity and safety for the drivers.
The HCL team is available 24/7. We maintain an inventory of spill response equipment of our own trucks and trailers that allow our crew to mobilize quickly and seamlessly for emergencies; and efficiently for routine clean-ups. Our spill response capabilities include containment, recovery and removal of impacted soil, and other impact mitigation measures. HCL owns and supplies temporary fencing, both rigid and flexible, to secure open excavation access during projects. We have built heavy-duty matting for equipment support and safe access when responding to spills. The 8’ x 14’ mats, purposely built with large 6”x 6” timbers, can support the heavy machinery where necessary. The slimmed down 4’ wide versions are also available for those tighter access areas.
Tractor & Implements
Hodgson Contracting Ltd. can provide half a dozen tractors equipped with front end loaders. HCL is able to add the finishing touches to every reclamation when bringing the project to completion. The variety of attachments that are able to be paired with our tractors are: roto-spik, kello-disc, rotary mower, agro-plow, offset or double-finishing discs, cultivator, roller, roto-tiller, hay rake, and a wire roller.
We also have a truck/trailer combination with a 46 HP Kubota 4060 Tractor with a choice of 5 different Implements which include: Harrows, Disc, Seeder, Roller and a Reverse Rotovator.
HCL has added a RTV 900 Utility Vehicle that is available. The RTV 900 can be used to pull harrows, seed and pick rock/roots.
