EnergyNow Feature: Traditional Earthworks Execution Doesn’t Limit Change Orders: How Digital Construction Execution is Reshaping the Industry

Advancements in construction technology are happening rapidly – are you seeing the benefits?

Integrated Sustainability is bridging the traditional boundary between engineering and construction with advanced earthworks execution best practices.

Over the past 10 years, Integrated Sustainability has gained an inside perspective to the inefficiencies of conventional construction practices while acting as owners’ engineer. They believed there was a better way to use today’s technology to execute higher quality projects at a lower cost by managing unanticipated subsurface conditions more effectively and increasing productivity.

With over 40 reservoir construction projects as owners’ engineer in hand, the team sought to integrate heavy civil construction and earthworks into their existing design and construction management services.


This led to the development of what Integrated Sustainability calls the Advanced Earthworks Execution Workflow. This methodology allows for rapid communication between the engineering and the field construction teams. It provides real-time data and maximum worksite efficiency, ultimately enabling design changes on the fly, and allowing all parties to manage unanticipated subsurface conditions much more effectively which keeps earthworks construction projects on track and under budget.


Integrated Sustainability’s transition to “concept to completion” turnkey infrastructure delivery and their innovative approach to earthworks construction has gained a significant amount of interest within the industry and has garnered an impressive amount of press within the last year.

Features and case studies have been published by Finning Canada, Propeller Aero, Trimble, the BOE Report, Onsite Magazine, and Construction Links Network. Check them out below for a more in-depth explanation of the approach and the implementation of technology to create the winning recipe for total worksite management efficiency and project cost savings.
