While it often goes unnoticed, excavation and site clearing are the most important aspects of preparing for construction here in Central Florida.
When preparing a property or land for development, there are five critical areas to consider.
Not only does this include removing heavy vegetation, trees, and clearing trees. It also involves the condition of the land, any obstacles, and the suitability of the soil.
While this may sound easy enough, it takes the right equipment and techniques to properly remove stumps, pull roots “brush grubbing”, eliminating boulder, large rocks, protruding objects, and debris, to ensure the land is feasible to start construction.
Are there any existing structures on the land? All this will need to be demolished and hauled away. The heavy equipment necessary for this includes excavators, bulldozers, dump trucks and manual labor.
Safety is vital during the entire phase of operation to protect adjoining properties and prevent accidents.
The terrain of the property will need to meet the construction requirements. The proper slope, elevation, leveling and soil will prevent flooding, ensure adequate drainage, and minimize erosion.
Soil types vary greatly here in Central Florida. The sandy soil on top is not the same as a few feed down. A knowledge excavation service will be well versed in the different types of soil. This is very important since the soil is responsible for holding up the weight of the building.
