Osceola Land Development; Site Clearing & Excavation

Quality excavation and site work are important for a solid foundation. It is just critical as framing the walls and the roof. If you want your buildings to stay put for years to come, without any problems, then you want to invest in quality site preparation. 

Why is quality site work so important?

Before construction begins, the property needs cleared and excavated. This typically includes digging for the placement of utilities and proper drainage.  

When constructing a building from the ground up, a stable foundation is imperative. The last thing you want, is a sagging and sinking foundation in the future. Just imagine all the headaches that would cause. 

An unstable foundation can also be found in how the building looks and feels. 

What Makes up site work?

Clearing 

Clearing the property, means removing all the debris, trees, plants, and brush from the site. This also includes taking out the roots and stumps. 

Excavation 

This is when the soil is tested, the excess removed, and quality soil is brought in. Hills removed and low spots filled in. Rocks are also an issue here in Central Florida, they will also need to be transported off the site. Large equipment is usually necessary to achieve quality results. 

Leveling 

This is when the soil is properly placed and leveled on the land. This will ensure a solid foundation. Equally important is creating a graded slope. Instead of water flowing towards the buildings, it runs away. The dirt is leveled out, ensuring the slope is not too shallow or too steep. 

Stabilizing 

During this process heavy rollers are used to compact the soil. During excavation and leveling, the soil can become less stable. Stabilizing ensures the soil eliminated of any holes or air pockets hidden below the soil.
