Experience the Landtec Difference

Making sense of earthworks

Landtec believes in fostering excellent relationships with our clients. Earthworks are technical and complex, and can be costly, so we want you to feel completely confident in the process. From our first meeting, we strive to be transparent and honest so that you have confidence in the outcome. Whether you know exactly what you want, or if you just know what you want to achieve and need advice, we listen closely to your needs, discuss the options, and answer any questions that you may have. 

Planning is key for success, so for larger projects that involve blasting and excavating, we visit your site and walk the property with you to understand the lay of the land, before any machines show up. Seeing the space before commencing any work helps us to understand the vision, and gives us a chance to discuss the work together.     


Making it easy for you to work with us

During the work phase of a project, we often check in with the landowner to ensure that everything is shaping up in the way they had envisioned. This approach allows flexibility for changes and decisions that may have been difficult to anticipate ahead of time. It is all part of our customer experience, because we want you to be delighted with our work.

On government bid projects, we understand that everyone wants to have a good day at work. We can be relied on to do our job well, and on time. Creating relaxed, professional work relationships helps to produce high quality outcomes.

About Us

Nick and Sarah Richardson

Our guiding principle is to offer friendly, knowledgeable, products and services with integrity.


For us, that means providing an excellent customer experience.

We started Landtec Industries together in 2007. At the time, Nick’s skills were mostly in technical urban excavating and building logging roads, but we saw the opportunity to branch out into drilling and blasting. During the early years, we primarily worked on outer remote islands such as Turn island and Sonora island. 

In 2011, our scope expanded to include excavators and our focus moved back to property development on Quadra island. Along with excavating, drilling and blasting services for residential properties, we also worked with BC Parks, BC Ministry of Transportation and other non-governmental groups. We opened the Landtec Rock Quarry in 2013, which now provides a local source for aggregate products to contractors and homeowners.
