The Importance of Site Earthworks

Earthworks is a construction site preparation that deals with clearing the land to pave way for a concrete foundation. The removal of topsoil or vegetative ground prepares the ground as such ground surface would not be suitable for construction. Removing the soil removes unsuitable ground for forming the foundation.

Earthwork prepares the proper ground to make it reliable and stable for building a foundation. The excavation task fulfils this essential part of the construction. The work involves the use of excavation equipment for soil removal and moving to make room for the foundation. The uneven ground goes to the cut and fill process to level the land. The process involves filling or cutting the soil to make it even. The result creates a more stable ground surface that will hold the structure’s foundation.

Then the land enters into the process of forming and scraping to make the ideal landscape. The soil gets moved and formed different structures like revetment walls. Excavating the soil can be done by manual labour or with the use of heavy equipment.

The manual earthwork is supervised by a foreman or a construction engineer who manage a group of workers to get the job done. Common tools manual site earthwork use include shovels, spades, and picks.

As for machine earthworks, heavy machines do most of the work. Earthmoving machines often seen on construction projects include compressors, bulldozers, mechanical hoes, and more. Other machines such as tipper trucks transport the soil from one place to another area within the excavation site.
