About Us

ADS is a full service, family run acreage development contractor.  30+ years of experience in building driveways, excavating basements, installing water systems and specializing in septic systems.  ADS can help you in all “DIRT” aspects of your acreage build…right through to service and maintenance once you move in!



Gross right? Here’s the gross part – your septic backing up into your house or bubbling up onto your lawn!  How about this … we install it right so those things don’t happen!

And of all the things on this list, if we have a “specialty” this is it.   From simple holding tanks to cutting edge advanced treatment units in impossible areas.  No septic is out of our realm.

We often get calls from clients telling us we were the only number to call, no one else will take this on.


With many years and many basements under our belts, there are no home excavations that are too big or too complicated for us. Got blueprints? Let us help you make them a hole!

And don’t worry, we won’t leave you with a big mess…backfilling, rough grading, finish grading, spreading topsoil and seeding are all part of our skill set as well! The truth is…we have a lot of fun working with clients to get their yards looking (and working) like they want them!


Ok, so we don’t drill wells but we can refer someone, and we do tie them in so you have water! We do all kinds of water system applications from the simple pump-in well and pressure tank to complicated valving systems for multiple zone uses (like when you have more than one building and want to add livestock waterers).  YES!   We install automatic waterers and hydrants too!

And it’s one-stop shopping! We’ll design the system, trench it in, supply materials and hook it up… the only two things you need to do are sign the cheque and start using water!


We build driveways to suit all kinds of properties from high grade engineered roads to winding trails through the trees. If it’s a solid base you’re concerned about, we can take care of that; favorite tree you don’t want damaged, consider them safe! Let us know what you have in mind and we’ll get you there!


Need quick foundation? Screw piles (or helical piles) are the answer!  It’s no problem to have custom specs met in a timely fashion.

Still not sure what a screw pile is?  Click here

We can even take care of any engineering for the piles if it makes it easier for you!



Worried about your site being a challenge because of trees, steep slopes, rock, maybe mud or standing water? Not sure how to approach it? No problem, we’ve dealt with hundreds of situations and overcome obstacles with fantastic success, this is after all, what we do!


Want a pond? What about rocks or berms? Drainage swales? Need dirt moved for your landscaping? How about permaculture projects? We do all of these and maybe more importantly HAVE done several of each, just ask, we’ll give you examples.

Sorry we don’t take on design or planting work (but you guessed it, we can refer someone) and typically they can do both design and soft work!


Got a project you're not sure how to approach? Let us help! With the experience in acreages that we've gained over the years, figuring out solutions to problems comes naturally. Don't hesitate, call now!!

This is a letter of reference for Clayton Foster and Acreage Development Solutions.  Clayton and his crew were on-site at our property at 27 River Drive North in Bragg Creek in August 2014 to install water and sewer services as well as de-commission the existing systems.  It was a tougher than average project as it required multiple trenches, two dwellings, many crossings of underground utility lines and the avoidance or ...
