Missing deadlines can have significant consequences and costs. While issues may arise, a company with good business practices is one with a reputation for delivering projects on the scheduled deadline and well within budget.


Safety should always be the highest priority. The last thing you want is a company who cuts corners, they tend to end up with problems down the road. Instead, tasks should be completed with efficiency and the highest safety standards. 

Licensing and Insurance 

Doing a little bit of research before hiring an excavation or earthwork service can save a lot of headaches down the road. Ensure the contractor you choose has the appropriate insurance and licensing.

Steps To Excavation/Site Clearing In Orlando & Kissimmee

How important is it to properly prepare your Central Florida land or property for construction?  What does it really entail? This first step to construction is bringing the ground to a “working condition level”. Site clearing and excavation is by far one of the most important parts of any project. 

When preparing land for construction there are 5 critical areas

Land clearing 

What condition is the property you’ve selected for your new development? Is it heavy with brush, trees, and vegetation? Are there any obstacles on the land?  The land would need to be cleared, the brushed and stumps removed. Eliminating boulders, large rocks, pulling roots, removing any debris and objects. Clearing the site makes it suitable to begin work. 

Structure demolition 

Are there any existing structures on the land? Will they need to be demolished and the unnecessary materials hauled off? Heavy equipment such as excavators, dump trucks, and bulldozers, are needed to transport the debris and to level and fill the land. 

Alteration of terrain 

This includes proper leveling, elevating, creating slopes, and filing of the soil to ensure adequate drainage, minimize erosion, and prevent flooding. Careful land grading to match construction requirements and an appealing appearance. 

Soil quality 

The soil is responsible for the weight of the building, making the quality essential. Not all soil is the same, unsuitable soil will need to taken off site and replacement dirt will be needed for proper construction preparation. After the filling process the land will need to be graded and leveled. 

Safeguarding utility infrastructure 

Underground utilities, pipes, water lines, gas, cable, and conduits are vital to construction projects. At Swell Construction we adhere the highest safety standards, ensuring everything is properly installed.

Drainage excavation

Drainage is essential for any project here in Central Florida. Constructing storm drains to channel water way from buildings by means of drains, ditches, trenches, and depressions for water runoff. If not done properly at the time of initial construction, it can lead to costly problems down the road.
