BQ Basements & Concrete is a local basement waterproofing and foundation repair service brand. The purchase will result in additional capital investment to expand BQ operations, enhanced employee training, increased sales and marketing, new technologies and a national warranty program.

Overall this is the 21st acquisition for Groundworks since beginning operations in 2016. The company today operates 17 brands across 41 offices and employs over 3,500 people nationwide.
