The first step is excavation and land clearing. Removing any unwanted trees and shrubs that are needed for the project.

This also includes any unwanted materials, rocks, stones, and garbage. Dirt may need to be excavated, depending on the soil and ground level, to ensure the highest quality, new dirt may need to be brought in and placed down. This creates a flat, secure surface for construction, which is vital for long term stability. 

The next step is grading the land. This ensures the ground is reshaped to the planned grades. Proper drainage is imperative for any property in Florida, of which land grading plays an important role. It also helps control sedimentation, soil erosion, and surface runoff.  Improper grading can result in increase peak flows, high runoff, poor drainage, and flooding. If the ground is left at levels that are inappropriate, it disturbs the natural patterns of the storm water and can cause a huge, costly mess.

Brush Removal: Much of Central Florida’s land is filled with abundant vegetation, leaving your construction site overgrown. Our team will clear out the necessary areas to create clean, clear property. 

Tree Clearing: Trees in Florida thrive in all of our sun and rain. Which makes removing them very labor intensive.  It takes proper equipment and an experienced crew. 

Stump Removal: Stumps can create major problems for contractors and developers, proper removal is vital to any project. Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean the roots aren’t still growing. These roots also need to be removed.

Erosion Control:  Surface runoff, prevent flooding, water pollution, and soil loss, erosion control should be done by experts who definitely know what they are doing!

Grading: To ensure the success of your project, it requires a level base, designed angles and slopes.

What You Need To Know About Central Florida Excavation & Site Clearing

Excavation and site clearing here in Central Florida requires proper planning and execution to ensure a successful project, that is smooth, time and cost efficient outcome. 

As a total site development company, Swell Construction has the skills and equipment to complete everything your project needs, from start to finish. Our professional team is ready to help you with your land clearing and initial planning stages. 

Acquiring permits

Our experience has taught us it is worth putting in the effort and being overly prepared. Ensuring everything is in order before breaking ground, instead of having legal or permit issues. 

Utility planning

Whether it is a vacant lot or a busy intersection, it is always best to check with utility companies to prevent any dangers of underground hazards. 

Soil inspection 

A proper soil analysis is vital to not only to ensure the soil can hold up the weight of the slab and building, but also to plan for the right equipment and machinery. For instance, a steel drum roller may be necessary for soil that has a high content of sand. Using something like a sheepsfoot roller may just displace the sand and not yield a proper compaction. 

Understanding how the soil reacts to moisture and how cohesive it is, will streamline the project, saving time and money.
