Orlando Land Clearing, Grading, Excavation, Paving

Whether it is a commercial developer building a multi-use complex or a family building a home in Central Florida, development projects need an experienced excavation and site clearing service. 

A solid foundation for every commercial and residential structure is vital for any building. If the cavity for the foundation is not properly dug out and prepared, it could mean costly repairs later. A quality excavation company adheres to the site plan to ensure the property is cleared, leveled and after the foundation has been cured, the area is backfilled around the foundation. 

To ensure the site is properly cleared, heavy equipment is needed. Bulldozers and dump trucks will remove any untreated debris, trees, existing foundations and debris. Then the soil is tested for stability to ensure it will hold the weight of the buildings. 

New roadways that will need to be built are staked out and the path is bulldozed. The debris is cleared out and hauled away. Proper drainage and utilities lines dug. 

Water runoff and drainage are very important in Central Florida. If the land is not properly graded the rainy season will be disastrous. Water will accumulate at the foundation, causing damage and even interior flooding. Grading is responsible for proper drainage.

A smooth and level landscape is not only a significant aesthetic component, it is logistically important to the project.  You don’t want water rushing into a building every a big storm comes along or a flooded parking lot. 

Slopes, hills, ditches, elevations are all important aspects of a construction project.  Though they may not look complex, there is quite a bit of science that goes into developing them. At Swell Construction we understand the requirements for each elevation, to ensure there won’t be any problems down the road.

Key Factors When Hiring A Excavation & Land Clearing Service

When starting on any construction job from the ground up, in Orlando, Windermere, Kissimmee, Osceola, Volusia, or the Villages in Lake County, you want everything to go smoothly. No setbacks or delays.

Framing out the project and pouring concrete is very exciting, but it’s the site clearing and excavation that can make or break the entire project.

When choosing an excavation service there are a few factors to keep in mind. 

Erosion Control

The team at Swell Construction ensures proper excavation during land development so that sediment and soil stays in place even during heavy rains. 

Site Management

There are many projects going on in Central Florida, it is important to understand the location of the development site. A successful excavation establishes appropriate entrances and exists around the job site, how it will affect traffic, the location of their fill pile, and other considerations. 

Location of Utilities

Utilities add another dimension to the project, from not damaging existing ones to coordination and placement of the new sewage, gas, water, and utility lines. 

Suitable Lot for Construction 

Before you start, it is important to consider the lot itself, the buildable area, the water table, the amount of trees, and slopes. Then there is the soil, if it is packed with sand or clay, to prevent cracks in the foundation may need stronger and larger foot.
