What is Excavation ?

Excavation work is the movement of rock and dirt to create a space for construction work to begin. It includes digging holes, grading land and leveling for:
    • Foundations
    • Roads, driveways and sidewalks
    • Sewer lines
    • Pipes
    • Drainage
    • Landscaping
Before any project starts, the landscape must be moved, graded, and made ready to architectural and engineering specifications.

Preparing the Land for Excavation for House or Building Construction Site Excavating or Digging

One of the most common applications for a dirt mover is readying the land under and around the site of a new home. Excavators move in once all zoning, permits and engineering plans get completed. Before any hole is dug, a couple things happen to prep the site:

  • They work closely with other experts, such as permit services, utility companies, and land surveyors in order to prepare for the dig.
  • They clear the area of any troubling obstacles, such as trees, logs, roots, brush, or boulders.
  • Site Excavating or Digging
  • Once a project has been approved, surveyed, and staked out, it’s ready for excavation.

These pros can help:

  • Trench for foundations, pools and utilities. They’ll also back fill around any concrete work.
  • Grade and smooth the soil. Happens after any foundations are poured and back filled. It’s necessary for correct drainage away from buildings and for driveways, sidewalks and landscaping.
  • Demolish any pre-existing structures. It takes a lot of delicate skill and restraint to remove obstructions while preventing damage to necessary surroundings.
  • Haul away dirt and debris.

Landscaping, Grading & Excavating

Beside prepping for homes, buildings and roads, our crews work to transform the land around existing structures for grading and landscaping.

    • Grading the soil preps the site for foundations and driveways and reduces the chance for future water problems. Creating proper drainage is essential. They grade the land in preparation for all landscaping installations. Often, an earth moving company takes care of all the engineering required for drainage.
    • Landscaping pros work with landscaping architects and designers. While they only move the earth, they need to know where the trees, shrubs, grass, driveways and walkways will go.

Additional Excavation Work
  • House and building demolition uses the same machinery needed to move dirt also works to tear down and move away old structures.
  • Cut and Fill. Cut and fill means moving earth from a high area to fill in a lower area. This levels out large stretches of land in preparation for road construction. Essentially, they’re leveling out a hill and using that dirt to fill in small depressions or valleys.
  • Land clearing  depending on the area you need cleared. It includes clearing the land of all trees, shrubs and even small human-made structures. Often used in preparation for new farm land, parks, parking lots and other structures.

JobSite Express specializes in projects of any size for Residential, Commercial, Light Industrial and Heavy Industrial.
