Central Florida Excavation; Land Clearing & Grubbing

First step for developing land for a construction project 

To turn land into a suitable construction site, it first must be cleared and grubbed. Most properties here in Central Florida have previously buildings, debris, and have overgrown brush and trees. All this needs to be properly removed for a successful project. 

What is Land Clearing?

Before construction begins, the land must be properly prepared by removing any debris. This includes any vegetation, trees, and brush, so the land can be graded.

Excavation may be necessary for extensive leveling or for the removal of large trees. 

If a property has an existing building or structure, clearing them will be necessary.

This is the first step to have a final site ready for new construction.

What is Land Grubbing?

After a property has been cleared of vegetation, brush and trees, any remaining debris, rocks, logs, and roots will need to be removed, this is land grubbing. 

Land grubbing must take place before site grading can begin. 

How is All Of This Done?

Depending on the site, type of materials, and how much leveling needs to be done, there are a number of equipment and strategies that can be utilized.

The location of utility lines must be confirmed before excavation begins. Bulldozers can be used to push over smaller trees, others may need to be cut down. A bush hog can be used to remove surface vegetation. Then rocks, trees, brush, and debris are all removed. Heavy equipment is used to grind stumps down and dig up roots, then everything is removed.

Orlando/Kissimmee Earthwork, Land Clearing & Paving

Proper excavation and site clearing is vital for a successful project here in Central Florida. The foundation is a vital part of any type of building, from a housing subdivision to a medical complex or even a parking lot. Considerable skill, training, and the right equipment is necessary for a foundation that will stand the test of time. 

It All Starts With A Stable Foundation

The foundation is responsible for supporting hundreds of thousands of pounds.  It also needs to stay dry, remain level, and resist changes in the weather, such as our intense heat and torrential downpours. Don’t forget the many tons the foundation itself weighs. Which means the ground must be carefully prepared and excavated to withstand the stress. 

Every Property Is Unique

The excavation process must be carefully planned and executed. Every property is different, they all have unique characteristics that must be examined and taken into consideration. Such as, moisture, water table, soil stability, and quality of the backfill. 

For those properties with a high water table, they may require protection at the base to safeguard the foundation from water damage.

Site Development, Grading, Land Clearing, Excavation

Whether you are breaking ground on a new Orlando, Kissimmee, or Clermont subdivision, business, or single family home, quality land grading is more important than you think. 

There is water just about everywhere here in Central Florida. From the lakes and ponds, to the daily torrential downpours. All that rain water has to go somewhere and it should be away from your building. Water drainage probably isn’t something that comes to mind when you drive by an office complex or beautiful housing subdivision, but when the land isn’t graded properly, the water damage can be significant. 

When the land isn’t graded properly water can flow towards a building. When water pools around a foundation the pressure can result in cracks and structural damage. Threatening the structural integrity of the building. 

This standing water also encourages insect infestation and contributes to the breeding of mosquitoes. 

Grading ensures water is being diverted correctly, which prevents land erosion and proper drainage. Whether it is a system of pitch angles, piping or swales, it can prevent flooding and a lot of headaches. It also takes neighboring properties into consideration, protecting them from flooding. 

Grading sets the tone for the entire construction project 

Starting with a topographic survey, then initiate a plan. To prevent erosion of the soil, a ‘buffer zone’ should be established. 

A local professional grading service will know the current regulations that need to be followed. 

Back fill around the building’s foundation is also important. Too little and you can end up with an insect and termite problem and too much and you have serious issues with moisture. 

Proper grading also sets the foundation for beautiful landscaping. The aesthetics of the completed project will come together when grading is finished. 

It is important to hire a expert grading service
