What Do Earthworks Companies Do?

Why is earthwork so important? It is not just simply digging a hole, it is an important step in construction projects. Earthwork is a critical process of construction. The nature of earthwork is dangerous and requires experience and expertise. That said, the job is best handled by an earthwork contractor.

What do earthwork companies do?

Their job includes site preparation, grading land, levelling, trenching, drilling, and, of course, digging holes. The site preparation and earthworks are used for foundations, basements, roads, driveways and sidewalks, sewer lines, pipes, drainage, landscaping, and swimming pools. The complete process includes:

Land preparation – The earthwork company’s initial work involves the essential acquisition of permits, coordinating with utility companies and working with land surveyors. After acquiring all the important documents, the area must be cleared of any obstructions such as trees, logs, boulders, and brush, and the area staked out.

Site excavating, drilling, or digging – The construction begins with grading and smoothing of the soil, demolishing any pre-existing structures and obstructions, and then hauling away dirt and debris. The soil is prepared so that proper drainage takes place, both on the surface and under the ground. Site work is important in stabilizing the area for the construction project and the concerns of erosion or damage due to drainage are handled.

Trenching services – The contractor digs the trenches required for foundation footings, utility lines, sewage and drainage pipes, and water lines.

Further work may require cutting and filling, and moving earth from a high area to fill in a lower area.
