Before a construction project begins in Orange, Osceola, Lake, or Volusia County, excavation and site clearing are usually necessary. No matter what size project you have, the development of your property should be done by a professional.
So, before you go out and rent some large equipment and do the work yourself, take note of these warnings.
Surprises In The Soil
Just because the soil you see on top looks manageable, what’s underneath may be a whole different story. Sand pits are known for collapsing, muddy or wet soil typically runs out of the bucket, and rocks are not only cumbersome, they are very difficult to break up.
Testing the soil before excavation begins will determine the type of equipment. A professional service will have the experience and the right equipment to get the job right. Bracing the pits, treating the soil, and drilling the dirt.
The Proper Equipment
Professionals have the right equipment, making the job safer and quicker. For instance, using a bobcat to dig small rows for irrigation and plumbing pipes is cumbersome. Trenchers can do the job better and easier.
The extending arms of a crane or backhoe makes the process of digging and reaching around obstacles much safer. The professionals at Swell construction own over 100 pieces of construction grade, heavy equipment, to make sure your project is done right.
Reduce Property Damage
What is under the ground, public utilities, buried pipes, and who knows what other obstacles lies beneath the soil. You also need to worry about the overhead lines and buildings. Large equipment isn’t always easy to maneuver, it takes experience
Excavation Can Be Dangerous
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports of over 150,000 construction site accidents every year. From pits collapsing to equipment accidents, there are more hazards than most people realize. Professionals understand the technical tasks and details before the work begins.
