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. 

Equipment

Communication 

Good communication is a must! The Project Manager is the pivotal point on a project and all crews take the initial direction from him. He ensures that the project is built to the client’s specifications and acts as the interface between the Owner, the office and the field.

Construction leveling devices are used to ensure the soil is in the proper place according to the plans. Graded slopes are created to make sure water flows away from future structures. The dirt is carefully smoothed out, so that slopes are not too shallow or too steep.

Equipment is used to stabilize the soil, eliminating any holes or air pockets that may be under the top layer of earth.
