—How about we give the backhoe some love? Often getting ‘lost’ with the big excavators and such, these versatile pieces of equipment can get tackle the lion’s share of tasks on-site if need be.

—Throwback Thursday to when the City of Vaughan needed some underground roadwork maintenance. Just prior to when this project was completed, Vaughan was the fastest-growing municipality in Canada for a 10 year period, ending this rapid expansion in 2006. #throwbackthursday #excavator #pipelaying #heavyduty #roadwork #constructionsite #civilconstruction #engineer #mgi #instagood #construction #build #mood #roadbuilding #watermain #siteservicing #heavyiron #machinery #cityofvaughan #ibuildamerica #civilengineering #equipmentphotos #builder #heavyequipment #blog #heavyequipmentlife #vaughan #igdaily #constructinghistory #mgicorp @cityofvaughan @vaughanchamber
—It’s amazing that, whether the result of carelessness or incompetence, you see cars spanned out over multiple parking spaces or ‘hugging the line’. 30+ tonnes of heavy equipment and we leave at the end of the day our heart on our shoulder. #demolition #heavyequipmentnation #demolished #heavyequipmentgram #picoftheday #heavyduty #contractorsofinsta #constructionsite #civil #engineer #mgi #instagood #construction #build #gtaconstruction #heavyiron #machinery #constructiongram #strongco #caterpillar #business #civilengineering #equipmentphotos #builder #heavyequipment #blog #heavyequipmentlife #igdaily #constructinghistory #mgicorp
Interesting places in Helsinki. Here some examples of old fortifications around the city. Most of them are before 1st world war, civil war and some are related to air defence of 2nd world war. Oldest are already from Swedish time.

On this episode of BOOMS UP Friday, we have a slick Hitachi throwing some concrete rubble and rebar off “The Mountain”. — “Good riddance” says the operator. — #sightofcan #mgi #mgicorp #constructinghistory #construction #heavyequipment #constructionsite #heavymachinery #igdaily #photogram #shotwithlove #photooftheday #picoftheday #movie #friday #projectmanagement #constructionworker #concrete #dirt #rock #rebar
—There will be times when, by virtue of your character, it’s necessary to let out a well-intended holler to your coworker sitting in the machine across from you.

—Large problems are often neglected for reason that one either feels the challenge is to daunting or doesn’t know where to start (or both). Break it into numerous, manageable parts, and use the right tool for the task at hand.

Demolition in Minutes. As the city grows, we grow with it. The Federal government responsibly invests in infrastructure, in this case, taking action on reconfigurations, realignments, and expansions to the Queen Elizabeth Way. #Demolition #DIM #TimeLapse #Infrastructure #Highway #Aerial #Demolished #DemolitionTimeLapse #InSauga #GTA #Builders #GC #CanadianInfrastructure #BuildIt #ConstructionGram #Wrecking #Building #HeavyEquipment #Construction #Residential #QEW #Mississauga #MTO #Development #CivilConstruction #Ontario #ConstructingHistory #mgicorp
I hate it when people say that anyone can make it in construction, especially demolition. Truth be told, demolition is a dangerous sport.. sometimes I wonder why demo guys aren’t paid higher for the work they do. Despite injuries that can occur from using the sledgehammer and saw, death is always a possibility when you’re bringing down a building or dealing with reinforced concrete as shown above. That’s why when projects entail dealing with rebar, the crew must proactively respond with more caution. — A slight miscommunication between labourers inside and operators outside waiting to rip the building apart can result in a fatal accident. Labourers and operators who walk through “the danger zone” aimlessly are bound to get hurt, hurt someone else or end up in coffin. — At MGI Demolition, safety is a priority. NO EXCEPTIONS. If something poses a risk, you bet your ass @mgicorp will make sure the safety risk is dealt with before any personnel is allowed in the vacinity. I can speak high and mighty about wanting to work in demolitions, but the thing is... I’m scared shitless to work in demos. Maybe it’ll be good though...it’ll teach me to be more responsible, cautious and pay more attention to detail. I still have to say after knowing the dangers, demolitions are my favourite part of the construction industry... will that change?? Only the summer will tell. — #mgicorp #mgi #constructinghistory #construction #volvo #excavator #dismantling #demo #demolition #wreckage #wednesday #sightofcan #heavyequipment #constructionsite #constructionworker #projectmanagement #riskmanagement #concrete #safety #constructionequipment #photoftheday #igers #igdaily #picoftheday #instagood #blogger
—The satisfaction of moving in sync with the rest of your team in unmatched. Here, you have the fluid motion of installing site services, more to the earthworks of backfill, grading, and compaction. #constructionteam #earthworks #siteservices #picoftheday #heavyduty #buildit #constructionsite #civil #engineer #mgi #instagood #construction #mood #heavyiron #siteservicing #earthmovers #bulldozer #compactiongrading #machinery #diggersanddozers #look #civilengineering #equipmentphotos #builder #heavyequipment #blog #heavyequipmentlife #igdaily #constructinghistory #mgicorp
—Tip Tuesday: When it’s necessary to run the equipment tracks parallel along a concrete slab (as in the picture above), be sure there’s no ‘middle ground’, where one track is slightly on/off the slab to avoid damage to the equipment. #tiptuesday #heavyequipmentmaintenance #heavydutymechanic #picoftheday #catexcavator #heavyduty #happy #constructionsite #civil #mechanic #mgi #instagood #construction #build #mood #heavyiron #machinery #caterpillarexcavator #throwback #vscocam #look #civilengineering #brampton #builder #heavyequipment #blog #heavyequipmentlife #igdaily #constructinghistory #mgicorp
—The foundation excavation and pouring for the Canoe Landing Community & Recreation project brought with it great views, in light of the proximity to downtown Toronto.

The countdown to summer has officially begun. This by far will be the most exciting countdown yet as I will join the “Team in Red” moving dirt, bringing down buildings and servicing sites. I used to look forward to the summers because NO SCHOOL, but this summer, there’s a heck of a lot more to look forward too. — Pictured above, you’re looking at MGI Construction’s “Red Sea” with just a fraction of their Dump Truck fleet. This picture was taken in their yard at the office! — #mgi #mgicorp #construction #constructinghistory #sightofcan #webuildcan #midweek #red #reds #truck #wednesday #projectmanagement #constructionworker #constructionsite #heavyequipment #igdaily #igers #photogram #photooftheday #heavymachinery #machinery #demo #trucks #dirt #rock #mining #tonka #childhood #dream #operator
Heavy Float Drivers are key to any construction project. The floaters bring in the heavy machinery needed to complete the project. In demolition projects, they are also necessary for taking big pieces such as tanks from the site to a recycling yard. —— #mgi #mgicorp #constructinghistory #construction #sightofcan #webuildcan #truck #driving #dozer #heavyequipment #constructionworker #projectmanagement #constructionsite #igdaily #picoftheday #instagood #look #vscocam #canada #big #red #rig
Closing out the official #mighty #machine #monday post of the month with MGI’s ZX870LC-6. This beast of an excavator was just one of around 24 excavators on site of the Home Depot Innovation Centre. Something about the Orange paint and black tracks attracts my eyes 👀. — The 16-18 month contract is coming to a close soon but it doesn’t go without noting that MGI sure put on a show for highway 400 commuters! — Be sure to follow @mgicorp for more pictures, never miss an update by subscribing to their blog, and check out some of their other projects.

If you have visited Square One within the last few weeks, you would’ve noticed that entrance 4 (Hazels Walk) has been temporarily closed. • I am unsure what’s being done there but all I can say is that I’m happy MGI is the contractor performing Interior Demolition and Abatement Services. • #fyi ... Careers and more information regarding MGI’s projects are just around the corner! • • • #career #inspirethenext #midweek #reds #red #wednesday #demo #wreckage #mississauga #squareone #construction #mgi #mgicorp #constructinghistory #heavyequipment #heavyequipmentnation #heavyequipmentlife #sightofcan #webuildcan #picoftheday #igdaily #photogram #civilengineering #look #vscocam
Happy Family Day to all! • As families have gathered throughout the weekend and continue to gather today for breakfasts, brunches, lunches or dinners, take the time to appreciate your family members — whether you see them everyday or a few times a year, always remember that family is everything and always comes first. Most importantly, you and your family are always #strongertogether • • • #familyday #igdaily #picoftheday #photogram #shotwithlove #caterpillar #volvo #mgi #mgicorp #construction #constructinghistory #heavyequipment #heavyequipmentlife #heavyequipmentnation #heavymachinery #team #monday #blogger #sightofcan #webuildcan

#tb to when MGI was at my school performing excavation and earthworks services for our Athletic and Student Centre slated to be complete around Fall 2019. • Peep at the rebar in the foreground which has been used for the footings and for the foundation of the building. • • #constructinghistory #mgi #mgicorp #construction #heavyequipment #blueskies #sheridan #business #school #projectmanagement #hitachi #constructionworker #orange #build #sightofcan #webuildcan #builtforit #blogger #heavyequipmentlife #look #constructionsite #idgdaily #picoftheday #shotwithiphone #igers #shotwithlove #photogram #instagood
As a young kid, I always thought demolition was just about attaching dynamite to buildings and blowing them up or tearing them apart. Little did I know, demolition is much more than that. • Demolition’s obviously produce ALOT of waste material, but when you’re young, you only care about the sight of a demolition and what the hell is being built afterwards. • As I grew up, I began to realize that demolition services included the crushing, screening and reprocessing of concrete rubble by-product, in addition to the whole tearing buildings and blowing them up thing. • Here’s to another #wreckage #demo #wednesday 🏢🥊 • Also, a shoutout to @goldrush for being the reason I fell in love with dirt, earth moving, feeders and stacker conveyors. • • • #construction #constructinghistory #mgicorp #mgi #picoftheday #igdaily #photogram #sightofcan #webuildcan #heavyequipmentnation #heavyequipment #heavymachinery #volvo #concrete #rock #crushing #screening #goldrush #mining #dirt #constructionsite #projectmanagement #constructionworker
—This Wiggle Wagon Wednesday is a tribute to our operators who maintain safety and excellence day in and day out. Clearly, here, dealing with this demolition debris is not an easy task and requires you to be one step ahead of the game and apply precision to boot. #demolition #wigglewagonwednesday #heavyequipmentoperators #picoftheday #heavyduty #eqipmentoperator #demolished #excavation #happy #constructionsite #excavator #engineer #mgi #instagood #construction #build #mood #heavyiron #machinery #vscocam #look #civilengineering #equipmentphotos #builder #heavyequipment #blog #heavyequipmentlife #igdaily #constructinghistory #mgicorp
