I’ve repeatedly hired R&D Construction for my projects, primarily for backhoe work. They’ve come through on other jobs as well. They’ve used their backhoe for several purposes: removing overburden to expose the naturally deposited soil underneath; trenching through overburden, human-made deposits and natural deposits so that we could map them; and removing and replacing steel plates at the beginning and end of the day, respectively. All were done incredibly well to suit our needs. They really listen. They are incredibly observant.
In addition, they have laid down and compacted gravel on a driveway after we completed our studies (that driveway turned out incredibly nice, especially considering it was gravel). They also quickly and efficiently repaired storm drain pipe.
R&D Construction does great work. Our Portland office recommended them and I was happy that they did. Not only that, they are pleasant and easy to get along with.
