This is Canada… We don’t just equip our machines for construction projects. We equip them for our winters. - A grapple attachment on this CAT 330D goes a long way. Not only does it make it easier to sort material from demolitions, but it makes this Kitty CAT ready for its winter close up 😍 - - - - #mgicorp #construction #constructinghistory #heavyequipment #snow #winter #canada #canadian #mightymachinemonday #monday #december #blueskies #blog #sightofcan #picoftheday #igdaily #photography #cat #caterpillar #photography #work #site #photogram #blogger #grapple #attachment #inspirethenext #imagesofcanada

Looking at yet another battle of destruction! - Beware of the grapple. Many buildings have went up against it in an all out battle of destruction. A war to earn the title of “most powerful in the land”. Many have been taken down. Today, the grapple still holds that title and is no match for its victims of mass destruction. - - - - - #construction #mgicorp #constructinghistory #demo #friday #sightofcan #canada #igdaily #picoftheday #photography #snapshot #blog #grapple #heavyequipment #photogram #igers #constructiondaily #vscocam #inside #look #picture #scrap #metal #building #recycle #environmental - Follow @sightof_canada for more pictures!

As I enter exams week, I can’t help but countdown the days until I meet the guys over at MGI! It’s been a long time coming too. No matter what the outcome is after exams, as I’ve worked my butt off this semester despite many obstacles, I can look forward from being just some random guy posting pictures to someone who’s become apart of the organization! Super stoked to be apart of the team and help grow MGI to incredible heights. - If you would like to be apart of a growing company, either on site or in the office, contact @mgicorp or click the link in my bio! - ROCK ON! 🤘🏾 - #construction #video #innovation #growth #career #truck #red #demo #inspirethenext #millenials #generation #vidoftheday #recruitment #canada #red #intern #corporate #dog #igdaily #videography #blog #blogger #exams #student #school #scholar

I have always believed crushers and conveyors belonged on mine sites until I passed by a Guelph aggregate company many many years ago. It was here that they had truckloads of demolished concrete waiting to be fed to the crusher and sent to the screener for some organization. I’ve realized that construction somehow runs through my blood even though no one in my family has ever stepped foot on an active construction site. If I see a site, I will gladly pull over and snap some shots or the little kid in me will look over inquisitively. - Pictured above is MGI Construction’s concrete crusher and conveyor. Upon demolition of a building or bridge, any concrete from the foundation, pillars or load-bearing structures, can be run through a crusher and carried away by the conveyor to where it is “stacked” hence why some people call it a “stacker”. Once on the stacker, the concrete can be carried to a pile upon being taken off-site, or it can be fed into an aggregate screener in where it can be separated into 2-6 different materials. - - - - - - - #demo #concrete #heavyequipment #tuesday #snow #winter #canada #sightofcan #building #bridge #build #constructiondaily #gravel #dirt #rock #environmental #earth #instagood #vsco #blog #picoftheday #igdaily #photogram #photography #picture #mgicorp #constructinghistory #blueskies #construction #mining
—We often say: “you have one life, so live it,” but we must remind ourselves that the possibility behind this lies in all those who made the sacrifice back then to serve their country and continue to do so today. Great Grandad Biff, great-grandfather to George Biffen (Biff), was one who sacrificed back then and we cannot thank you enough.

Rollin’ in for winters first #mightymachinemonday is the CAT 730C articulated truck. Articulated trucks makes it possible for companies to generate more focus on the work being done and spend more time and money on the job being completed rather than on servicing. - An articulated truck is a truck that is commonly used in construction and small scale mining operations. The trucks are used generally in difficult terrain where the tasks completed include hauling heavy loads such as overburden, paydirt, rocks and boulders, and concrete. - If you head up to the Yukon Territory where many go to strike it rich in Gold, watch my all time favourite “Gold Rush” or visit a concrete demolition site, you are bound to find these beauties! - - - - - #construction #mining #rock #dirt #cat #truck #constructinghistory #mgicorp #heavyequipment #inspirethenext #concrete #demo #winter #shot #leader #create #cat #picoftheday #photogram #igdaily #photography #picture #canada #sightofcan #edit #student #self #education #mighty #monday

Construction isn’t for the faint at heart. The industry is built upon the blood, sweat, and tears of labourers, operators, managers and engineers. Some prefer to sit in the office safe from the elements while others prefer to embrace them. The industry is Canada’s front line. It's what gives us clean drinking water, temperature controlled buildings, transit and transportation systems and infrastructures as well as places to sit while we enjoy Canadian Nature. - - - - - - #construction #mgicorp #igdaily #picoftheday #photography #constructinghistory #blog #blogger #inspirethenext #canada #sightofcan #build #lifestyle #create #leaderscreateleaders #instagood #photogram #picture #constructionsite #constructionmanagement #heavyequipment #worker #engineer #operator #road #bridge #building #saw #concrete #constructionworker
—Veteran Stan Edwards attends Remembrance Day ceremonies at the Field of Crosses in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, 11/11/2018. The 96-year-old hero joined the 14th Canadian Armoured Regiment (Calgary Tanks) on the day following his 18th birthday to participate in Canadian WW2 efforts. Edwards fought in the Dieppe Raid in 1942 as a member of a tank crew, where he was captured by Axis troops. He spent the following 3 years as a prisoner of war in German camps Stalag VII-B and II-B. He returned to the beach at Dieppe for the first time since Operation Jubilee as part of the Canadian official government delegation to mark the battle’s 75th anniversary.

We’ve had some snowfalls. We are starting to have shorter, colder days. We are seeing more and more people wearing gloves, boots, and heavier jackets. We are even seeing cars with black seasonal tires. We can also say that we are seeing some construction sites dormant more days then a few weeks ago. Some might even say that these construction companies are running on a skeleton crew. Obviously, there are a lot more signs that I can bring up but I thought I’d name just a couple. So if you’ve interpreted those signs the way I have then you, like me, know that the best season is right around the corner…. WINTER! - In light of it being close to winter, brace yourselves for a whole lot of Canadian Winter pictures! And yes don’t worry, I have got just under 70 winter shots from the guys over at MGI Construction that you’ll see! - If you have pictures of your winter festivities, the way you enjoy winter, or what winter is like in your city or town, send me DM or use #sightofcan !

—George Albert Ellsworth (1918-2011) was a quiet, humble, veteran of WW2. A foot solider in the 9th Canadian Infantry Brigade, he was among those brave young men who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-day. Wounded in Boulonge, France, he was sent to England to recover, then finally back home in 1945. Most called him AI, to Airlie Ogden, however, he was grampie.

—The 17 Upper Canada College Rifles Cadet Corps was formed in 1863, even though they had existed as an organization since 1837. Back then, it was referred to as the “Upper Canada Drill Association”. Only in 1977 did it receive its current title. It was formed mostly by students in the defence of the 1837 rebellion as well as assuming garrison roles during the Fenians raids. What can be taken as as sign of optimism at best, with the dampened interest from students, the unit was disbanded in 1988.

Ahh concrete. Such an important material for the masses. Concrete makes up the bridges that we use to cross roadways and highways. Concrete makes up the curbs and the medians that creates the borders for our streets. Concrete makes up the sidewalks that we walk on. Concrete makes up the foundations that our buildings and houses are built upon. - If you thought that concrete was just produced from companies such as Lafarge or Dufferin, then you don’t know of an entirely new industry called “Concrete Recycling”. When companies such as MGI Construction Corp complete a demolition project, they will take on the role of concrete recycling, aggregate crushing, and screening. They will use this concrete and aggregate to sell it to those companies such as Lafarge and Dufferin Concrete. - - - - #construction #concrete #recycling #screen #picoftheday #picture #mgicorp #constructiondaily #constructinghistory #inspirethenext #heavyequipment #rock #green #photogram #photography #thursday #sightofcan #canada #beautiful #igdaily #edit #blueskies #building #bridges #engineering #road #truck #education #plant #grinder

—Known for their intelligence, loyalty, dedication, and tenacity, German Shepherd dogs (GSD) actually played a key role in the battlefield.

Powered by a C13 engine with ACERT Technology, the CAT 345D L produces 385hp at 1800 rpm thanks to its 6 cylinders. The engine improves maintenance costs due to less engine wear and less oil consumption. It can also use B30 biodiesel to further reduce emissions. • The CAT 345D L is equipped with SmartBoom technology that reduces the stress and vibrations transmitted to the machine. The SmartBoom helps the excavators operator perform Rock Scrapping, Hammer Work, or truck loading activities. • As seen above, MGI Demolition has attached one of their mechanical grapples in order to pick up and discard of demolition waste more efficiently. • • • • #construction #constructinghistory #mgicorp #mgi #dirt #concrete #dust #saw #labour #sightofcan #canada #inspirethenext #civil #engineering #build #edit #photography #picoftheday #igdaily #photogram #blog #vscocam

In the spirit of the snowfall outside, the presence of winter, and in lieu of posting a sappy winter photo, here’s a nice wintery photo of a Volvo EC480EL courtesy of MGI Demolition! For those who know me, already know that I’m counting down the days until I’m finally on site with MGI! • • • #winter #volvo #demo #construction #constructinghistory #mgicorp #photography #canadian #canada #snow #snowfall #winterwonderland #blog #blogger #picoftheday
The mission of life: Live, Love, Learn, Leave a Legacy. • Digging a trench isn’t just about moving dirt around and installing water, sewage or utility systems. In my opinion, it’s about leaving something behind long after we are gone. These trenches will make sure that our kids’ homes are not backed up with waste products, they will make sure that our kids have clean water to their taps, showers and bathtubs. They will make sure that our kids’ houses and buildings are heated and have electricity. • MGI has it right when they say “Constructing history” because today’s construction will be tomorrow’s history and our legacy. • That’s one of the reasons why I love the construction industry and hope to grow my career in it. I’m not just an aspiring leader. I am an aspiring leader that wants to build a great legacy. I am an aspiring leader that wants to make a difference. But most importantly, I am an aspiring leader that has intentions to work with MGI in inspiring the next generation and continuously “construct” history! • • • • • #constructinghistory #construction #mgicorp #sightofcan #dirt #trench #thursday #vibes #inspirethenext #gen #inspiration #canada #picoftheday #igdaily #photography #picture #cat #leader #create #leaderscreateleaders #innovate #heavyequipment #constructiondaily #career #dig #demo #strategy #legacy
—The tradition of ‘reversing and resting on arms’, that is, leaning your body against a rifle held upside down, has been a mark of respect or mourning for centuries. Artist George E. Maddison begins shading a piece for a client, to be completed in multiple phases.

—An absolutely heart-wrenching story comes our way from Caix, Midi-Pyrenees, France. ScotTB visits the graveyard memorial of the Battle of Amiens, graciously tucked away between corn and hay fields. 113 soldiers lost their lives that day, including his great-grandfather, Sergeant George Henry Pigott.

—The Parkwood Rangers FC Galaxy, part of the London Football Association, shared a special moment of silence prior to their game on 11/11/18.

You probably won’t find a 21-year old that is as passionate and committed to learning about construction as much as me. First off … I love the dirt. I love heavy machinery. And I love learning. Secondly, I am like 99% the construction industry chose me. So in response to a comment that was posted on one of my past photos, I started to do some research on excavator buckets. So why do some contractors knock out the bucket pins, turn the bucket around and then knock the pins back in? - Well reversing your excavators’ bucket doesn’t just look cool, it is useful in foundational, excavation, backfilling, or shoring work. - In an example, the contractor could reverse their bucket if they need to backfill H piles or lagging walls. Another useful application for reversing the excavator’s bucket comes at times when the operator needs to dig under something such as a sewer, water, gas, or electrical line. If the contractor needs to undermine part of an existing, then they would need to reverse the excavator bucket. Some contractors will reverse the bucket if they need to underpin an existing wall to dig vertically next to it. - In some instances, such as in future pictures that you will see on my page, the bucket is backward for safety precautions as rebar can be a deadly hazard to workers and machinery. - - - - #mightymachinemonday #bucket #dirt #mud #monday #heavyequipment #construction #constructinghistory #igdaily #mgicorp #picoftheday #photography #picture #blog #blogger #inspirethenext #inspiration #motivation #sightofcan #canada #cat #build #canada #inspiration
