About Us

When you work in partnership with Démolition des Rivières, you can be sure that the health and safety of our workers, environmental protection and the needs of our employees, clients and owners will be fully respected. We make that a top priority on each and every one of our sites.

Our History

Founded in 2010 by Julien Fradette Genest, at the time a young entrepreneur of only 23 years old, the company was quickly able to grow into one of the major players in the field of demolition and industrial recycling. Its renowned reputation was rightfully earned by the high quality of work and later allowed the company to broaden the range of services it offered. The company now offers their clients decontamination, revalorization and reconstruction work.

Over the years, several key employees have joined the company, allowing it to consolidate its strong reputation and standing in the field. Today, the management team and staff look back on the evolution of the company with pride and share great optimism for the future.

  • Our project management system encourages the inclusion of each member of staff to work together towards the continuous improvements of operations.

Our engagement
Démolition des Rivière is proud to support the charitable foundations in its local area. In addition to taking part in several construction projects and working on the buildings of charitable organizations, the company is also engaged financially and makes charitable donations. For example, the company was able to give to Le Grenier, a charity promoting food security in Lévis, Québec, the Foundation Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis and Signes d’Espoir, a charity organization which provides work for people with visual impairments. These are but a few examples of the organizations and charities we support.
