Client Testimonials

Sean and his crew completed an enormous and complex excavation under a house that has been raised to allow the foundation to be replaced and extended. This was a HUGE project with about 120 truckloads of earth removed from a tight site in Cambridge in the historic district…… Sean’s crew did a fantastic job. I managed this project and was onsite every day. Their speed, professionalism and efficiency amazed me. They ran 4 trucks doing 4-5 trips each day, so the soil removal happened as quickly as they had proposed (timing I was highly skeptical of!)

Sean Farrell replaced the lead water line to my house. Old school ethics in business, that you seldom see these days. I’m very impressed. His guy showed up on time and gave a fair estimate. The crew arrived as scheduled fully prepared for the work.
It turned out that the job required tearing out part of an interior wall that they had no way of seeing when gave the estimate. Did they charge extra for the work? No. Plus, the repair to the access door was a great improvement.

Honest, fair, and professional, I can’t recommend this company enough.

Kevin P. - Quincy 11/27/18

Project – Removal of a 50+ year old, 23,000 gallon vinyl lined pool, concrete and equipment removed, structural fill, prep grading for patio. Sean Farrell was very accommodating and prompt. The man who worked the heavy equipment was a master operator and conductor as he led the team of laborers and drivers throughout the complex process. Day of Demolition: The trucks and team arrived early in the morning. They backed in our driveway expeditiously. They were never at the site all at once, but were rotating in and out at as the situation required…….The team was well orchestrated without wasted steps. We couldn’t be more pleased.
