    With a proven track record of successful projects, we understand what it takes to keep every project organized and moving forward efficiently and effectively to achieve the cost, schedule, quality, sustainability, and safety goals of every client.

We pride ourselves on providing exceptional service, timely deliverable, and unmatched quality, at a fair price. To that end, we ensure long-term value to our clients; our long-term friends.

    The ultimate goal of every client is the creation of value – a maximum return on investment. Project quality, cost and schedule are key factors in determining value. Many contractors view these factors as diametrically opposed; that is, they believe quality is achieved only with higher cost and more time, or that fast-track construction requires the sacrifice of quality and cost.

    Canterbury Diggers generates value based on the balance and optimization of quality, cost and schedule. Projects are delivered on time and within budget. Value is maximized, as is return on investment for our clients.

    Value is the client’s ultimate goal; integrity and an unflinching dedication to performance is Canterbury Diggers – every project, every time.
