Stages Of Earthworks Land Clearing

Any building construction projects start with site clearing. Earthworks involve the processing of massive quantities of soil, digging the ground or levelling the earth surface. There is a wide range of industries that practice earthworks. Here we talk about the stages of earthworks land clearing.

Stages Of Earthworks Land Clearing

The first stage of earthworks requires the stripping of soil. It removes the vegetative ground, which is usually on the topsoil. The vegetative rich ground surface would be unstable for construction, thus need to be removed. Soil stripping removes unsuitable ground for building the foundation.

Excavation work prepares the foundation. This task requires excavation equipment for soil removal and moving to make room for the foundation. There will be uneven ground, so land levelling is needed. The process involves filling or cutting the soil to make it even. Earthmoving creates a more stable ground surface fit for constructing a foundation.

Then land forming and scaping to create the ideal landscape. The soil is moved and formed different structures like revetment walls. Depending on the severity of the project, it may be done by hand or machine.

A land surveyor, a foreman or a construction engineer supervise a group of workers for manual earthwork. Commonly, tools such as shovels, spades, and picks are used for manual earthwork job. On the other hand, mechanical earthworks involve the use of earthmoving machines like compressors, bulldozers, mechanical hoes, and more. The hard ground may require blasting. Earthmoving equipment such as tipper trucks transports the soil from one place to another place around the construction site.
