Whether it’s a large housing development or a commercial real estate project, every construction undertaking starts from the ground up. Central Florida is rapidly expanding, a solid foundation is essential for a successful project.
While it may be invisible once the project is done, site preparation is vital.
If a site is not prepared properly before construction begins, the entire project can be compromised. Preparation includes land clearing, grading, proper compaction, soil stabilization, dewatering, excavation, paving, storm water and utility system installation.
The first step is excavation and land clearing. Removing any unwanted trees and shrubs that are needed for the project.
This also includes any unwanted materials, rocks, stones, and garbage. Dirt may need to be excavated, depending on the soil and ground level, to ensure the highest quality, new dirt may need to be brought in and placed down. This creates a flat, secure surface for construction, which is vital for long term stability.
The next step is land grading. 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.
