Earthworks excavation

Bulk earth moving is often the first phase of any construction project whether it be site preparation, land profiling or landscaping and earthworks projects need to be built on firm foundations.

An initial earth-moving phase on a building site requires as much planning and preparation as any other aspect of the works.

If a significant amount of earth-moving is needed, then the preparation may also need to include site surveying, logistics, volumetric assessment and the access available for bulk excavation equipment and materials.

Clients may also need to consider the potential re-use of excavated bulk materials, the on and off-site facilities for shifting and storing significant amounts of soil and also the disposal of waste, particularly on potentially contaminated brownfield sites.
