You drive along a road, into a parking lot, park, walk across a path into a building or home, the ground is secure and solid. The ground beneath is supporting heavy vehicle, equipment, and buildings. Excavation makes this all possible.
The weight of any construction project has an impact on the ground. Proper excavation is what ensures the ground will support all the weight. It is a process more detailed than one would imagine.
To start the excavation process, all existing structures, rocks, and trees must be removed. Here in Central Florida this can even mean hazardous debris. This doesn’t mean everything has to go, natural geological hills and healthy trees can be preserved.
Not only what is above the surface, but also what’s below, including some topsoil. Digging holes for foundations and roads.
Time for Construction
To ensure the ground will support anything constructed on it, this means removing and adding materials. Not all dirt is the same, they react differently when compacted. It takes precise and scientific calculations to support the construction. Which is why also why geological and civil engineers inspect the stability of the site.
Excavation also creates the right drainage on the property. Which is vital here in Central Florida.
A trench is dug for the placement of the building’s foundation, sewage and water pipes, along with other building related functions. The depth of these specific excavated spaces typically exceeds their width.
Trenches require designated equipment and a protective system in place, since they can be hazardous.
A professional excavation service is not only responsible for the integrity of the site, but also the surrounding areas.
