Being centered in tropical South Florida has a lot of perks for our type of work, we can work all year round and the soil is good. Unfortunately with perks comes consequences, in most recent cases: Hurricanes. Florida has been hit with some historic hurricanes in the past 100 years, destroying farmland, homes, and even entire towns as they blow over the Sunshine State. Most recently we survived what has been documented as the largest hurricane to make landfall in United States History, and while Florida fared better than predicted, disaster still struck, leaving millions without power, ran thousands from their homes, and left hundreds homeless, not including residents of the historic Florida Keys, who were hit hardest by the devastation.
We have always been about lending a hand to our surrounding areas, using our variety of equipment and personnel to assist where we can in restoring Florida back to normalcy. Large debris cleanup, dock rebuilding and marine restoration are just a few of the services we provide in this area.

Throughout our history, BGC has provided a multitude of services to the commercial, agricultural (bluegoosegrowers.com), marine and governmental markets and those services require us to be constantly vigilant and conscious of the environmental impacts of our work.
We have an extensive Project Portfolio involving work for several Water Management Districts and Power Generation Facilities where the project scope covers work directly in or interfacing with wildlife sanctuaries, canals and / or basins that lead to the Saint Lucie River, Saint John’s River, the Florida Everglades and Lake Okeechobee as well as the Atlantic Ocean.
BGC and our parent organization takes great pride in our environmental record and our commitment to the environment very seriously. We are experienced in the use, installation and control of sediment barriers, wetland buffers, turbidity controls, Stormwater Management Controls, Air Quality and Noise Controls, as well as Wildlife and Aviary Protection Controls .
We have a proven record of success in preserving the waterway conditions and protecting the aquatic life and wildlife indigenous to the work areas. BGC takes great care and precaution with our waterway works and protecting the environment through planning and controls. We plan and conduct our operations so as to avoid pollution or siltation of water bodies or to interfere with indigenous wildlife, its’ mating and germenation cycles as well as harvesting cycles for work we do in the agricultural marketplace.
