How Important Is Grading To Your Central Florida Project?

How important is it to have an experienced contractor to handle your grading project? So, important that this process can make or break your project!

So, What Is Grading?

Site grading is the term engineers use for leveling the land to fulfill the specification of the project. The slope of the land is considered the “grade”. Adjusting the slope of the land before building on it is grading. 

The grading process takes place in the beginning stages of construction. Taking into account the soil composition, the water retention and soil density, grading takes experience and the right equipment.

Why Is Grading So Important?

Grading plays a huge role in the quality and longevity of the buildings in the project. 

Grading is responsible for creating a solid foundation. Building are very heavy and need to remain structurally sound for many years, a strong foundation is necessary for this to happen. 

Our torrential downpours here in Central Florida can easily wreak havoc on a building. Proper grading reduces the risk of erosion and keeps water flowing downhill, according to the its natural course.

Costly damages happen when water doesn’t drain properly. Cracks and structural impairments can result when the property isn’t properly graded. Water should never be allowed to pool around the foundation. Proper grading also discourages erosion of the land. 

When your grading is properly performed it addresses a ‘buffer zone’ of vegetation, current regulations, and backfill around the foundation.  If not, erosion, foundation and moisture issues, termites, and even legal problems can develop.

The success and overall integrity of your project depends on properly preparing the property for construction.  This phase is too important to leave to just any company, it takes experience, the right equipment, appropriate licensing and insurance.

When you choose Swell Construction you can be sure to get the highest quality, professionalism, and great customer service.

What Goes Into Site Clearing & Excavation In Orlando & Kissimmee

In continuing with last week’s blog on Green construction, most projects starts with excavation and site clearing. Construction developments are quickly becoming aware of both the financial and environmental benefits of green construction methods. 

Swell Construction is proud to partner with developers and those in the construction industry to develop cost effective projects that benefit our community. We promote socially responsible and eco-friendly practices with all of our projects. 

Excavation and site clearing entails multiple steps. Carefully taking many factors into account to ensure the land is strong enough for the planned foundations, is the first step for environmentally friendly construction.

What Goes Into Preparing a Site For Construction?

Step 1: Testing the Soil

It is important to understand what type of soil the land contains. The soils ability to withstand a structure and absorb water impacts the overall success of the project. 

Step 2: Land Clearing 

Clearing the land and getting the ground ready for building typically includes removing unwanted debris, trees, shrubs, and dirt. 

Step 3: Planning The Design 

During this phase professionals partner together to plan the placement of buildings and roads, install drainage systems and utilities. 

Step 4: Site Investigation

To ensure the highest level of quality, our team will analyze the soil, rocks, and groundwater. Taking all this into account to create an updated plan. 

Step 5: Grading and Compaction 

Drainage and land grading is especially important here in Central Florida. It drives water away from the foundation, deterring any foundation and flooding issues. 

This phase requires an experienced team and the right equipment. After all, compaction of the soil is responsible for supporting the building, so it needs to be done with the utmost accuracy. 

Preparing a site for construction requires careful planning and quality work. If a company cuts corners, you can end up with costly damages down the road.
