Whether you are building a structure in your Central Florida backyard, a subdivision with many homes, or a business on a private lot, the ground needs to be properly prepared. The rainwater needs to drain properly and the dirt needs to be able to hold the weight of the building.
Excavation for a construction project starts with clearing and grading. Any debris, soil, rocks, trees, and unusable materials are removed. The areas are cleaned, then the excavation team digs the tunnels and trenches for electric, pipes, and underground utilities.
After this, soil may be either removed or brought in to strengthen and stables the area to ensure it will hold up the weight of the building. Walls are also established to protect the workers and counterbalance the soil.
Swell Construction is familiar with all the necessary permits, procedures, local ordinances and safety regulations.
This is why it is so important to choose a knowledgeable and experienced team to handle your excavation. To ensure it is properly done, here are a few guidelines.
This is a critical element here in Central Florida. If not done properly, controlling erosion and stormwater management can easily cause delays and even shut a project down. Taking steps such as installing silt fencing and removing the layer of topsoil, to ensure it won’t get washed away during an afternoon rainstorm. Causing massive delays and damaging the construction site.
To avoid delays, the sequence of preparations should not be overlooked. Steps should be taken before construction begins to plan out creating entrances, access roads, and fill piles.
Utility Lines Management
Underground utility lines, such as gas, water, sewer lines, and fiber optics should all be located and taken into account before excavation begins. The last thing you want is costly disruptions.
