Our History

INSITU Contractors was established in 1994 by Harry Oussoren and has since successfully completed 1400+ projects in Ontario and beyond.

The success of these projects is built on a sound technical understanding of groundwater conditions and many years of experience providing practical solutions to groundwater issues. 

Our company name originates from the Latin word meaning “In It’s Original Place” and is a literal representation of the work that we do.

Safety First

We are certified under the COR safety program. Our teams focus on the safety of everyone on site using strict procedures.

We Are Human

  • We’re the face of the franchise. We don’t hide behind our staff; when needed we talk to customers during the sales and work process.
  • We don’t wear suits to the office. We’re not stuck on roles.
  • We don’t yell and scream at people, instead, we prefer resolving problems collaboratively.

We Listen

Too often clients are offered a solution without an in-depth consideration of the project. At INSITU, we ask the question – ‘what do you need from us?’. We don’t sell what isn’t needed.

We Are Respectful

  • We are committed to the clients from start to finish. We’ll stay until the job is done.
  • Our goal is to make every client feel like they’re our only client.
  • We treat our clients how we want to be treated, with respect and integrity.
