Orlando & Kissimmee Excavation & Land Clearing For A Solid Foundation

Are you starting a construction project here in Central Florida, a commercial site or new house? To ensure a solid foundation, you need quality excavation. This will ensure proper drainage of water runoff and prevent damage caused by nature and weather. 

What are pre-construction excavation services and why are they important?

What is excavation?

The process of moving soil, rocks, earth, and other materials are considered excavation. It serves many purposes, such as trenching, earthwork, tunneling and wall shafts. 

Why is excavation important?

A good foundation is more than just concrete. The land needs to be able to support the infrastructure for decades without any issues. Before the foundation is even established, the soil stability, moisture, water table and quietly of the backfill, need to be assessed. This will ensure foundation problems such as separation and braking will be prevented. 

Types of excavation

Site clearing

Site clearing is the first step of many construction projects. It involves clearing the land, removing unwanted brush, trees, boulders, rock, debris, and earth. 

Site preparation 

Heavy equipment and excavation tools are used to prepare the land. This ensures the soil and drainage are both properly prepared.

Trenching and drainage 

This includes trenches being dug for drain and sewer pipes. 

Subgrade Stabilization 

To ensure there won’t be any issues in the future, proper backfill techniques are essential. To prevent any foundation problems, such as, pumping, settling, and heaving, the soil needs to reach an optimal consistency by moisture conditioning and for optimal stability the earth needs to be compacted properly.
