About Us

Bayview Excavating was established in January of 1992 by Robert and Rae-Anne Timony. In April 2018, Bayview was purchased by French River Contracting, a local company which is owned and operated by Al Pilon, a lifelong member of the Noelville community. We are located just off Highway 64 in Noelville, Ontario, approximately 1 hour southeast of Sudbury in the French River area. Initially, the majority of our services were local but over the years, we have expanded our coverage to include Manitoulin Island, the City of Greater Sudbury and outlying areas as well as Sturgeon Falls and surrounding areas.

Our services range from excavating to landscaping, trucking, road building, ditching, drainage works, sewage system design and installation, rock breaking, dredging and snowplowing. We are also a licensed carrier for dangerous goods and contaminated waste. Our products include sand, gravel, topsoil and various aggregates available from our licensed quarry operations.

Our expertise in the construction field enables us to offer various services for a wide range of clients, including those from the municipal, tourism, forestry, industrial, mining, public and private sectors.

Over the past several years, a large volume of our work has been in the area of municipal drains, working for various municipalities under the direction of an engineering firm. We have experience and knowledge dealing with pipe and grade lasers as well as the ability to read Engineering Blueprints.

Al Pilon, President of Bayview Excavating Ltd., has over sixteen years experience in the construction industry both in supervisory roles and heavy equipment operation and has a comprehensive knowledge of the aggregate production.  He specializes in the septic system design and installation for new construction and renovations to existing dwellings. 

Bayview Excavating Ltd. has logged many successes and we receive excellent feedback from our diverse customer base. The engineering firms and municipalities involved in drainage works have been extremely satisfied with our performance and quality of work. Some of this drainage work has included substantial highway crossings involving lane closures, etc. We have constructed roadways for new subdivision projects in addition to large sewage systems and ground work for new building construction involving commercial and tourist establishments. We have worked with bridge replacement and repair (large box and arch culverts). Our latest success has been with a client in the mining industry to dredge a retention pond using a barging system.

We are very proud of our people and will undertake any project within our capabilities. Our equipment operators and drivers collectively possess many years of experience, and some of them have been with us for over 15 years. We receive excellent comments regarding the ability of our people to get the job done in a safe and timely manner, as well as their professionalism and courtesy with our customers.

Experience, knowledge, satisfied customers and flexibility are just a few of the advantages that make Bayview Excavating Ltd. a better choice. We welcome new business and look forward to developing sound relationships with new clients.

We look forward to serving you.
