Affordable Orlando Site Clearing, Excavation & Paving

Preparing a property for construction here in Central Florida is no easy task. There a quite a few phases that are essential for a successful project.

Preparing a site for construction can include demolition of existing structures, removing hazardous materials and debris, clearing the land, grading, moving the earth, drainage, and paving. 

Site Evaluation 

After the site is analyzed and deemed suitable for your project, the shape and size, zoning regulations, and the slop. 

Geotechnical Testing 

Soil testing determines the characteristics, properties, and composition of the soil and rock beneath the surface. This should include a laboratory analysis, sampling of the groundwater, and soil. Testing the subsurface will determine the weight bearing capacity, strength, and how well the soil absorbs water. 

Site Plan Design 

Not only does this include entry for construction vehicles, temporary storage and access roads, but also, drainage systems, pipes and structures. 

Site Surveying 

Outlining where all the utilities, fixtures, and structures with markings to ensure everything fits together properly. It also designates if there are existing utilities or cables underneath the ground. 

Clearing and Grading 

This includes clearing the property of any existing structures, trees, roods, brush, and underground infrastructures. The ground is filled and leveled according to the specifications. 

Water runoff and drainage is very important in Central Florida. If the land is not properly graded the rainy season will be disastrous. Water will accumulate at the foundation, causing damage and even interior flooding

Site Compaction 

Compacting the soil takes specific equipment to ensure it can hold the weight of the foundation and building for years. 

Subgrading stabilization is responsible for the integrity of the entire project. This ensures there won’t be any caving or shifting and the topsoil is stabilized. This also means the buildings won’t experience structural damage or cracks in the future.

Do you need a piece of land cleared in Central Florida? Where Do You Start and what do you need to know? There are a number of things that go into land clearing and just as many issues to watch out for. 

Utility Issues 

Underground utilities, sewer lines and power cables, are not always clearly marked. Detecting them may not be easy. Digging up these utilities can be extremely dangerous. Which is why professional excavation does excess research before beginning the project. 

Tree Issues 

Small plants and trees may be easy to excavate and remove, but removing larger trees and their roots take a lot more that bulldozing. It takes the experience of a professional to tackle these issues. Roots need to be expected before removing the tree and safety needs to be addressed as removing large trees can be dangerous and cause extensive damage. 

Hazardous Materials 

Hazardous waste left on abandoned or vacant property is an especially big issue here in Central Florida. Often times this includes chemicals, garbage,  unwanted dangerous materials. These items need to be properly removed and disposed of. 

Water Issues 

Water sources located underground can be difficult to detect until you start digging. Soft ground can indicate an issue with water, which can be expensive to reroute to make the property buildable. It is important to have the property inspected before purchasing. 

Permit Issues 

Permits are required before excavation or site clearing can begin. To avoid any delays, make sure you have all the necessary information for the permits.
