Bollig And Sons Demolition and Excavating

Recent projects by Bollig & Sons

Here you will find recently completed projects that we have been a part of.  As you can see, there is a wide variety of work that we perform besides just excavation and demolition. 



Residential Demolition

This project consisted of the demolition of a rundown single family home located in Minneapolis.  Demolition and removal or all building debris took place in one day.  The excavation of the basement will follow next.


Restaurant Demolition

This project consisted of the demolition of a small two story commercial building in downtown Robbinsdale. The excavation for the new building took place immediately after all debris was removed from the site.


Garage Demo and Garage Slab Prep

This project consisted of the tear down of an old garage followed by preparing for the new garage slab. All work was completed in one day.


Stormwater Pond Clean Out

The city of Plymouth needed a stormwater pond cleaned out due to a buildup of stormwater sediment. Excavators and skidsteers were used to clear out the sediment.




Residential Addition

This project consisted of the addition of a two car tuck-under garage in the city of Minneapolis.


Basement Underpinning

The following pictures display different underpinning projects. One is of a sport court in a residential home and the other is of a 1900’s small commercial building.


Basement Shoring

Some of the houses that we dig basements for require engineered shoring in order to stabilize the banks of the neighboring homes. The following photos display our workmanship.


Water Table Issues

For basements that encounter the water table, we are fully capable of quickly resolving the problem before the water takes over the excavation.


Subfill and Backfill

The following photos show a walkout basement that was subfilled and backfilled on the same day.

Run down single family home being demolished in Minneapolis, Mn. Operator is in the process of compiling the housing debris into the basement where it will then be loaded into a container truck, brought to a landfill, and sorted.

Here two operators are placing rip rap along the crow river in Watertown, Mn. The stream banks have eroded over time and the placement of this rip rap will help prevent future stream bank erosion.
