Earth Works & Excavation In Orlando & Clermont

Continuing last week’s blog, site clearing and ensuring a site is properly prepared for construction. After a property is cleared of all debris, brush, large rocks, then depending on the specific site’s needs and according to the development, further work is necessary. This can include soil remediation, rock removal, and grading. 

Grading is the process that transforms the contours of the property’s elevation to meet regulatory requirements and aesthetic needs. Soil remediation will remove unstable soil and replace it with safe soil. Rock removal will take away any below grade rocks that can hinder or impede construction. 

Other site work needs include stormwater management, utility installation, paving, and landscaping. 

It is vital to partner with an excavation contractor with the necessary experience.

The cost of a project typically depends on the scope and difficulty of the project.

The scope of the project and condition of the land, are there large slopes or is it flat? Is it heavily wooded with large trees or is it mostly grass?

Are there any local permits, environmental regulations or zoning variances needed?

Will the cleared debris need to be hauled away or will it be burned?

How accessible is the property and how much land need to be cleared?

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.
