About Us

Safe work. On time. On budget.

We guarantee safe worksites, met deadlines and no surprise costs.

With every building project, something is inevitably in the way. Existing structures, soil contamination or a lack of excavation hold back contractors and developers every single day. Schouten is a demolition, excavation and abatement contractor that offers certified, safe and complete site preparation services.

Our passion for people and paying attention to the smallest details mean clear quotes, choices given to you on extra costs, and a commitment to completing work on time and on budget.

With Schouten, nothing is in your way.

Our History

Established in 2013, Schouten has rapidly grown from a small excavation company with one excavator to a complete site preparation firm encompassing demolition, excavation and environmental services. Originally a two-person team, Schouten now has over 35 employees and a fleet comprising state-of-the-art excavators, rock trucks, impact crushers and compact machines.

Today, Schouten offers all-inclusive, surprise-free service throughout the province from their headquarters in Watford, ON.
