Orlando Excavation Contractor; Site Clearing & Development

Starting a construction project from the ground up in Central Florida isn’t always easy. There are a lot of steps that need to take place for a successful plan of action. 

First the land needs to be cleared

Within itself excavation and site clearing require multiple steps that require large pieces of equipment. Removing the undergrowth first creates an easier and safer environment to do the rest of the clearing. Such as clearing out shrubs and cutting down trees. 

There is more to cutting down trees than you think, if the sumps and roots are not properly removed, with proper equipment. If not ,the decaying matter left behind can cause cracks in the concrete structures being built. Animal burrows and large rocks also need to be removed properly. 

Second, Soil surface needs to be cleared

The soil surface doesn’t usually make for a stable foundation to build on. Since there is a big concentration of decaying matter, debris, and roots. This is why the surface soil is loosened and then removed. The new surface is graded and carefully prepared for a building’s foundation. 

Third, 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.

How Does Your Parking Lot Or Driveway Look?

Don’t estimate the how you asphalt parking lot or driveway looks. It’s one of the first things people notice when they drive up. If the asphalt is in poor condition, not only does it leave a negative impression, it can pose a danger. 

Consider these essentials tips when creating an parking lot design 

Thickness of the pavement 

Before construction even begins, the quality of the ground soil should be determined. The types of vehicles using the parking lot, cars, SUVs, or 6-wheelers, should be taken into consideration when it comes to the depth of the asphalt.  The more weight, the deeper the asphalt. 

Parking lot size, space layout and accessibility 

It is important to have enough spaces, the average space is 9×19 feet. If you angle the spaces (45 degrees) it will allow for more spaces. Other zones should be taken into consideration, drive thru lanes, drop off zones, ramps, curbs, walkways, and handicap parking. Don’t forget to make it attractive with bushes, trees, flowers. Which can also act as a barrier.

Keep it safe 

Properly installed sub-drainage is responsible for strong pavement, lasting well into the future. To preserve the sub-grade drainage pipes should be installed with filters. This allows a consistent flow of water and contain small particles of soil within the sub-grade. Proper materials are also important to ensure potholes don’t happen in the future, or any sinking or shifting in the foundation.

Osceola Land Development; Site Clearing & Excavation

Quality excavation and site work are important for a solid foundation. It is just critical as framing the walls and the roof. If you want your buildings to stay put for years to come, without any problems, then you want to invest in quality site preparation. 

Why is quality site work so important?

Before construction begins, the property needs cleared and excavated. This typically includes digging for the placement of utilities and proper drainage.  

When constructing a building from the ground up, a stable foundation is imperative. The last thing you want, is a sagging and sinking foundation in the future. Just imagine all the headaches that would cause. 

An unstable foundation can also be found in how the building looks and feels. 

What Makes up site work?

Clearing 

Clearing the property, means removing all the debris, trees, plants, and brush from the site. This also includes taking out the roots and stumps. 

Excavation 

This is when the soil is tested, the excess removed, and quality soil is brought in. Hills removed and low spots filled in. Rocks are also an issue here in Central Florida, they will also need to be transported off the site. Large equipment is usually necessary to achieve quality results. 

Leveling 

This is when the soil is properly placed and leveled on the land. This will ensure a solid foundation. Equally important is creating a graded slope. Instead of water flowing towards the buildings, it runs away. The dirt is leveled out, ensuring the slope is not too shallow or too steep. 

Stabilizing 

During this process heavy rollers are used to compact the soil. During excavation and leveling, the soil can become less stable. Stabilizing ensures the soil eliminated of any holes or air pockets hidden below the soil.
