Site Preparation

Proper site preparation is essential to a safe and productive construction environment. During the beginning stages of a construction project, people don’t always consider the details of the building location. However, an improperly prepared construction site can destroy plans, hinder building permits, and damage your project. Not to mention that it can cost you thousands of dollars… You want to collaborate with an earthwork expert who has seen and handled it all.

Site Clearing

The process of clearing away the vegetation and surface soil of the construction site. While this may sound like a quick and dirty process, there is an exact order of operations that needs to take place to ensure an optimal work environment. We use a specialty machine called the Right of Way Clearing Machine. It does not disturb the soil, and it can mulch up to 8 inch diameter trees. It’s an environmentally friendly way to clear with low soil disturbance.
